Top Fishing Charters in Boca Raton


One trip aboard a Boca Raton fishing charter is all it’ll take for you to fall in love with this lively city. Many records have been set, and even more smashed, in the easily accessible and productive local waters. The edge of the continental shelf has an irresistible draw for seasoned anglers, while novices get to enjoy world-class inshore fishing just a few minutes away.

Just outside downtown Boca Raton, you’ll find inshore grounds abundant with prized species like Tarpon, Snook, Jack Crevalle, Mackerel, Barracuda, and Shark. Anglers who savor the taste of Tilefish, Grouper, and Snapper will be blown away by the endless artificial reefs dotting the waters right off the mainland. However, the fishing truly skyrockets once you’re in the warm currents of the Gulf Stream. Here Billfish, Mahi, Tuna, and Wahoo eagerly await.

Incredible fishing starts just 15 minutes after departure from the dock. Even if you only have a few hours to spare, an inshore trip is worthwhile. Head down towards Miami and you could easily hook into Sailfish on half day trips. On a full day trip, you’ll be able to venture all the way to the continental shelf and enjoy the big game hunt for topwater predators and massive bottom fish.

The best place to look for charter boats is in the marinas surrounding Lake Boca Raton. The lake has direct access to the ocean, via the Boca Raton Inlet, giving boats located here the advantage of no wasted time getting to the rich fishing grounds offshore.

Rules & Regulations

If you’re fishing from a charter or with a certified guide, you won’t need a fishing license. Keep in mind that season open dates and bag limits on Florida’s Atlantic coast differ from those on the Gulf Coast.

Had a good but not great day fishing. Not the captains fault, but fish just were not biting. Caught 1 nice kingfish and 1 keeper grunt. Chatter on the radio confirmed no one was scoring fish that day. Captain and boat was great. Just one of those days.
