Benny's Book a Mate&Fishing Charter

COVID-19 Update: Recreational fishing is allowed in our area, approved by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

Benny’s Book a Mate & Fishing Charters is your key to a successful trip with a lot of exciting catches. With Benny and his tournament-winning crew of captains, you will be spoiled for choice. After your day out with them, you will surely be grilling fish for dinner!

Your Captain will take you fishing the prolific waters of Pompano Beach. The best thing about the area is that you don’t have to travel too far out at all! They will show you the hottest spots and honey holes right around the corner.

You will be fishing the drop-offs, endless artificial reefs, and rocky piles. Get some Bonito, crank up Mahi, score Kingfish, Tuna, and Wahoo. Head up to Sailfish Alley or venture out to the Gulf Stream for Swordfish.

Hit the best fishing spots in search of Snapper Rosies and Tilefish. Load the boat with good-eating fish and come back to shore with your own catch of the day. Bennys crew works hard for a successful catch on whichever trip you decide to choose.

Benny’s Book a Mate & Fishing Charters will take you out aboard a 27’ See Vee center console or 27’ Contender center console. The boats have everything you need for a successful day on the water. Both come powered by a 300 HP Suzuki engine (new motors changed every other year) and are fully outfitted with the latest electronics, professional tools, and accessories to put you on fish.

All trips come with quality gear, tackle, lures, and licenses. The crew will clean your catch when you’re done. If you have any questions or goals for your trip please message them after booking and they’ll contact you before your trip. Don’t forget to tip your captain at the end!

We're very passionate about catching fish and have a reputation for working hard. We fish for a living year round. Besides charters, we also catch fish to sell and also catch bait so that always helps to know where the fish are! Following these fish on a daily basis helps to know their patterns and helps to produce more fish per trip. The more we catch the better we look so we're always trying our hardest and working the whole time to produce a bite. We a Tournament team and we have a list of ranking and winnings under our belt.
