Dutchman Sportfishing - Palm Beach

Dutchman Sportfishing, LLC is a fishing charter headed by Captain Aaron, who more than two decades of experience fishing South Florida, from Ft. Pierce down to the Keys. Fishing is something he’s been doing since he was five, so he’s sure to be able to show you a thing or two.

The boat you will be using is a 52’ Hatteras offshore sportfishing boat, powered by two 660 HP Detroit engines. Apart from all the necessary safety and navigation equipment, the boat also has outriggers and a live bait well. The vessel features a spacious cabin with all the comforts of a yacht, including air conditioning, a kitchen, a private toilet, and more. There’s plenty of room for up to six prospective anglers to fish without any problems or bumping elbows.

Captain Aaron mostly does nearshore and offshore trips on this boat, so you can expect to be fishing for species like Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Red Snapper, Kingfish, Wahoo, and more. Anything from light tackle fishing with kites and live bait to bottom fishing or trolling is an option, and Aaron is happy to cater to your individual fishing style.

Rods, reels, and terminal tackle are included in the price, and so are water and light snacks. Captain Aaron will have anything you catch cleaned and bagged for your convenience. Bring a pair of sunglasses and a camera, and you’re all set for a proper fishing adventure.

I have been fishing since I was a five year old kid with my father. We mainly bottom fished out of Jupiter and the "bug" simply stuck with me. I have since had the opportunity to fish in some of the best destinations from New England to the Caribbean and was able to learn from each experience, further honing my skills on the water, both as a fisherman and a captain. I have numerous other hobbies as well, but the ocean and fishing has always been my true passion.
