Top Fishing Charters in Boynton Beach

Fishing in Boynton Beach

Boynton Beach fishing charters have it all. The sea floor drops 200 feet before you know you’ve left the shore and the surrounding waters are littered with busy reefs and wrecks. Head out a little further and you will hit the famous “Sailfish Alley”, home to huge numbers of big game pelagics. And if that’s not enough, you can always visit the Bahamas aboard one of the awesome cruisers docked in town.

Known For

Boynton Beach has so much fantastic fishing it’s easy to forget there’s also a town here! This relaxed coastal neighborhood is well worth an explore, so try not to spend your whole trip at sea. Wander the beautiful Oceanfront Park Beach or the picture-perfect walkways of Mangrove Park. Satisfy your cultural side with a trip to the Morikami Museum and its stunning Japanese gardens then grab a bite at one of the town’s great seafood restaurants.

Types of Fishing Charters

Now that’s over, you can get down to the real action – fishing! Boynton Beach fishing charters come in all shapes and sizes, so where you go and what you target is entirely up to you. You can hit some epic fishing grounds even on a half day trip. As always, though, the biggest fish hang out further offshore, so serious sport anglers will want to stay out longer.
 
Reef Fishing
You can hit dozens of Boynton Beach’s top fishing spots within minutes of leaving the dock. The action changes from spot to spot, but you can expect all your bottom fishing favorites like Grouper, Snapper, and Triggerfish, as well as some big Barracuda and Sharks - make sure you get your catch in quick or you might just be left with your next hunk of bait!
 
If you fancy heading out further, Boynton Beach is the perfect place to enjoy some world-class deep dropping. The floor hits 100 fathoms before you even lose sight of land, bringing deep-water wrecks within easy reach. Spend the day pulling in Tilefish, Barrelfish, Wreckfish, and other freaky deep-water species, with plenty of topwater action to keep things interesting.
 
Deep Sea Fishing
If you’re into deep sea fishing, Boynton Beach is a dream come true. You can easily target Mahi Mahi and Wahoo on a half day trip, along with some huge “smoker” Kingfish that will gobble up anything you throw their way. You can even get in some great billfishing on a half day trip, especially in the winter, when the Sailfish are in their prime.
 
On full day trips, mother nature really cranks up the heat, throwing Blue and White Marlin, Blackfin Tuna, and unbelievable numbers of Sailfish your way. Head out to Florida’s legendary “Sailfish Highway” and you could get 20 decent hits in a day. The local pros have pulled in four times that in the past.
 
This is just the ocean’s attempt to pull the wool over your eyes if you ask some local guides. The real prize lies much, much, deeper and has become the area’s signature catch in recent years. We’re talking, of course, about Swordfish. You can find daytime and nighttime swordfishing trips running out of Boynton Beach, on anything from center consoles to luxury cruisers. You won’t normally have to head more than 30 miles, either, fishing in up to 2000 feet of water for the tastiest fish in the sea.
 
Bahamas Trips
Grab your own little slice of the jet-set lifestyle. Many of Boynton Beach’s most luxurious cruisers offer multi-day trips to the Bahamas. Spend your days fishing for Monster pelagics like Blue Marlin as you cruise around this tropical paradise. Take some shore leave to dance the summer nights away, then head on back with a whole boatload of delicious fish. 
 
Freshwater Fishing
Boynton Beach’s freshwater action is worth a mention for more than just contrast. The local populations of Peacock and Largemouth Bass are always a hit with the fly fishing crowd, while the weird and wonderful Clown Knife Fish tops a lot of exotic fish bucket lists. The labyrinth of local waterways is made even more interesting by the mix of fresh and saltwater. Cast your lines one way, you’ve got Bass. Cast them the other, you’ve got Snook. Sounds like a dream come true!
 
How much does it cost?
Boynton Beach has a trip for every budget, from a morning walking tour of the local canals to a multi-day blowout in the Bahamas. Freshwater charters are the cheapest around, costing as little as $250 for four hours of awesome light tackle action. The local center consoles don’t cost much more. A half day usually runs a little under $400 and full days are half as much again.
 
When you get into the realms of the big sportfishing boats, the prices do start going up. Even the fanciest 50’ cruiser won’t usually cost more than $650, with full day trips capping at the $1200 mark. The exception to this is Swordfishing, which costs between $1200 and $1500 both day and night. The sky’s the limit with multi-day Bahamas trips, but then that’s kind of the point. This is the chance to do something incredible and no price tag can match the amount of fun you’ll have

Fishing Techniques

Bottom fishing is the bread and butter of most Boynton Beach charter captains, so they don’t mess around when getting you on fish. You will usually start by chumming the water, then drift over the reef trailing live Pinfish or chicken rigs with strips of squid. Deep sea fishing focuses mainly on trolling, with dressed Ballyhoo topped with chugger heads to let you troll at speed. Sailfish are the exception to this rule and are mainly targeted with kites.
 
When fishing the shallow canals for Bass, you’ll be using light spinning or fly tackle, the lighter the better. On the other end of the scale, the heaviest tackle in town is used to haul in Swordfish, with monster electric reels dropping several pounds of lead and several whole squid, all lit up like the fourth of July to tempt in these large-eyed predators.

Need to Know

All certified Florida charter boats cover the fishing licenses for everyone onboard. If you’re breaking out on your own or fishing from a kayak, you will need to buy one for everyone age 17 and up. If you’re heading to the Bahamas on a multi-day trip, don’t forget your passport! It can happen to the best of us, but it will really ruin your trip!

Boynton Beach Fishing Seasons

Kick off the year with awesome offshore fishing, heading out to the Sailfish Highway to battle these acrobatic beasts. Double-digit catches happen daily when these legendary waters are at their best.

Big Sailfish are still putting anglers through their paces offshore. On the reefs, Cobia and Barracuda make for hard-fought battles, with big Grouper, Snapper, and Tilefish as the spoils of war.

As the weather warms up, the fisheries come to live in every depth of water. Peacock Bass prepare to spawn, while the first few Swordfish start showing up in the ocean's darkest depths.

The Boynton Beach Firefighters Fishing Tournament is the biggest angling event of the year in Boynton Beach, with $25,000 in prize money, and high stakes fishing for King Mackerel, Wahoo, and Mahi Mahi.

Spend your days battling monster Tuna and Sailfish offshore or Tarpon and Snook inshore. Afterward, head to the Boynton Beach Food, Wine, & Brew Festival to relax and enjoy some food and drink.

White Marlin come crashing into town in June, making for epic offshore action. Inshore, large numbers of Permit, Tarpon, and Snook (Catch & Release only) will give you hours of fun, too!

Celebrate the 4th of July in style, with a firework display and live music at the Intracoastal Park. For the rest of the month, you'll have to make do with the huge numbers of White Marlin, Mahi Mahi, and Swordfish.

Blue Marlin finally show up on the offshore scene in August, lagging behind their acrobatic cousins. This is your best chance of catching both in one trip, so get out there and have fun!

The Boynton Beach Harvest Festival has been held for several years and makes for a great day out. With a classic car show, a local goods market, and lots of fun for the kids, it's well worth a visit.

The Boynton Beach Pirate Fest & Mermaid Splash is the perfect place to spend the day, with a jamboree parade, mermaid pageant, music, and more, it has something for the whole family.

The first few Sailfish show up in November, while Snook, Permit, and Bonefish swarm the shallows for awesome fly fishing action. And that's without mentioning the constantly active reefs nearby!

The Boynton Beach Holiday Boat Parade has been held for almost half a century and is still one of the highlights of the festive season. Don't let it distract you from the awesome reef and deep sea fishing, though.

"Fishing with John"

Mike Lonsway fished with Hook’N Up Luxury Sportfishing on August 18, 2018

Great time on the boat. The captain knew a lot about fishing. First mate was very knowledgeable as well. The captains son was not a great addition to the trip.
