Top Fishing Charters in Deerfield Beach


A Deerfield Beach fishing charter is your shortcut to excellent angling with no crowds to worry about. You’ll find beautiful sandy beaches, piers, and walkways lined with palm trees that look onto the Atlantic. Stay around downtown creeks and lakes or head offshore and wet your line in the Atlantic. There are challenges all around, just take your pick!

Inshore, you’ll find a wide variety of available species including Snook, Black Drum, and Sheepshead. If you opt for an adventure around the mangroves, you’ll battle the likes of Barracuda, Bonito, and Mangrove Snapper. Make a trip to the warm Gulf Stream and prepare to fight Swordfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, King Mackerel, Amberjack, and Tuna.

If you’ve only got limited time to spend on the water, a nice half day excursion on the waters of West Lake Park, Highland Beach or South Inlet Beach will be the perfect trip for you. Slightly longer trips can take you to various spots on the Miami Terrace Reef, while full day offshore packages will get you into a brawl with the meanest deep sea beasts.

Deerfield Beach’s Intracoastal Waterway shoreline is dotted with marinas. This will be the most likely starting point for your expedition. Charters tend to gravitate here so that the can have easy access to both the popular inshore spots as well as the open waters via the Boca Raton Inlet.

Rules & Regulations

When fishing with a certified charter, you don’t need a fishing license. However, if you want to explore the fishing opportunities on your own, you’ll need to purchase a fishing license. To ensure you stay within the law be sure to check regulation on limits and sizes apply when planning your trip.

January

The turn of the year around Deerfield Beach means a solid bite from Bonefish and Trout. You can also expect bags of Lane Snapper. An offshore trip can end in big game bonanza if you manage to get hold of Sailfish.

February

The weather’s warm and with the average temperature of 71°F, you can expect a pleasant day on the water. There are Lane Snapper and Bonefish inshore, while the ocean has a lot of Sailfish to offer.

March

The Sailfish hype is real. They are now accompanied by Bonito and Blackfin Tuna. Mahi are also consistent, while you can find a good fight around wrecks which hold Amberjack.

April

The Sailfish bite slows down, but Blackfin Tuna, Wahoo, and Mahi make up for it. Later in the month, you can start seeing Tarpon inshore. Expect Amberjack around wrecks and Barracuda near inlets.

May

There is a fair Yellowtail and Mangrove Snapper bite in waters 40-80 ft deep. You can also get a fine number of Grouper. Tarpon are showing up more and more.

June

Mahi Mahi are showing up everywhere. Beat the heat by fishing for Swordfish, or do some trolling for King Mackerel, Wahoo, and odd Sailfish. The Tarpon bite is in full swing inshore.

July

You can get surprised by White Marlin offshore. Plus, there are Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Skipjack Tunas, and more out there. Snook and Tarpon are abundant near inshore inlets.

August

It’s epic fishing wherever you look. Anglers regularly find big Snook inshore, while offshore charters come back with Wahoo, King Mackerel, Mahi, and Sailfish.

September

If you like fly fishing, stay inshore for Snook and Tarpon mayhem. Leaping Sailfish are a common sight on offshore trips, and you will see hundreds of Mahi Mahi and Wahoo.

October

Not even rain can stop Sailfish bite. But, that’s not all. You can get Sharks, Mahi and some more Mahi, as well as King Mackerel. Swordfishing can be super rewarding if you’re up for the battle of a lifetime.

November

Kingfish make their appearance closer to the shore, with a strong bite from Mahi Mahi. There are also some Barracuda and Blackfin Tunas out there. Troll Ballyhoo and you can hook into massive Wahoo.

December

The Sailfish season is in full swing, so if you want an early Christmas gift, head offshore and do some magic. Trolling can also get you a good number of King Mackerel which will jump high above the water once hooked.

Good day fishing We were able to hook up on some Mahi before reaching a deep drop and pulling up some black belly rose fish. We found some more mahi followed by every rod going off with some small black fin ending our day. Fish in the boat!

Great trip for me and my 13 year old daughter! We wanted a nice boat ride with some fish and we got it. The fish were not biting early on, but we had a nice boat ride, saw some rainbows, sea turtle, dolphin, and tracked around a storm cell. Toward the end of the trip, we each caught a fish and had a nice meal that night. Both captain and “crew” were great. Would definitely recommend.

Capt. Matt and his crew are not just in the charter business, they are in the client satisfaction business. With less than ideal conditions Captain Matt and crew were so intent on us catching what we set out to catch that we filled two coolers with mahi! For anyone on the fence, book it! All your party will have smiles on your faces at the end of the day, the Capt. and crew will see to it. Just DO IT!

Great day fishing with John and Capt Matt. Matt put us on the fish and John worked really hard to make the fishing fun and enjoyable. Trolled and caught a bunch of large mahi and spanish mackerel. Did deep sea bottom fishing and caught a bunch of black belly rose fish. We came down from NJ to fish and we will definitely be back and fish with Matt and John again. 5 star trip.

Started the trip off catching a large mahi mahi and finished off with some tuna and a couple baracudas. Captain Matt went above and beyond to make our family trip special. I recommend to anyone looking for a great day of learning, catching fish, and making memories with friends and family. I definitely look forward to booking again in future!

What a blast. More fishing than my party of four could handle. Great sushi from the large blackfin tuna. My brother in law made smoked fish dip from the mackerel which was awesome. Mike and Christos sure know where the fish are and how to show a group a great time.

Captain was ready to go as promised at 7am, and we were on the water trolling shortly thereafter. Trolling was slow, lots of seaweed so we did a little botom fishing and picked up a few nice sized porgy. Then we hit the trolling again, even though the planned time for our trip had expired, until Matt and John helped us land a nice sized King Mackerel. These guys were friendly, professional and went the extra mile. We will be back in the future, highly recommend!!!
