Fishing in Boynton Beach
Boynton Beach fishing charters accommodate all your fishing needs. The colorful reefs and wrecks present a rich environment to explore, and the seafloor drops 200 feet very close to the shore, which means a good catch is easily yours for the taking. If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, seek out the famous “Sailfish Alley,” where big game pelagics dominate the waters awaiting their next challenger.
After leaving the dock, it’s only a matter of minutes before you come across reef species such as Grouper, Snapper, and Triggerfish. Barracuda and Sharks aren’t far off either so remember to reel in your catch fast if these feisty predators are not your target. Big game fish including Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and large “smoker” Kingfish are also worthy targets, although a bit further offshore.
If you’re looking for bigger, more challenging species to catch, consider taking a full day trip. This is where the real action takes place and you can expect to find Blue and White Marlin, Blackfin Tuna, and Sailfish in huge numbers. Florida’s “Sailfish Alley” is almost guaranteed to get you a couple dozen decent hits per day!
Boynton Beach has no shortage of boats suitable for any trip you’d like to embark on. Whether you’re looking for freshwater charters, nearshore adventures aboard a center console, or an offshore trip on a big sportfishing boat, the local marinas deliver e. All you’ll have to do is find a captain to your liking and your trip is a go!
Rules & Regulations
When it comes to fishing licenses, all certified Florida charter boats are responsible for providing them for you. If you’re thinking about going fishing on your own, you’ll need to buy one for everyone over the age of 17. Remember to bring your passport if you're planning on crossing the border into the Bahamas!
