Top Fishing Charters in Deerfield Beach

Fishing 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.

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.

Deerfield Beach Fishing Seasons

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
