Known for its exclusive estates and pristine beaches, Palm Beach is exactly what most people imagine when they think “Florida”. There’s a lot more going on beneath the surface, though, nowhere more so than on the water. Palm Beach fishing charters can take you to a whole world of different habitats, from shallow creeks and hidden canals to the deep blue waters of the Gulf Stream and beyond. 
 
Palm Beach fishing guides comb these waters in search of the best catch. Pick a fish, they’ll find you five. Blue and White Marlin and Sailfish top the big game guestlist, while delicious deep-sea species like Vermillion Snapper, Dusky Grouper, and Tilefish lurk below. Even right in town, you can find Snook, Tarpon, and Peacock Bass, all within casting distance of each other.
 
In fact, there’s so much going on that it’s easy to forget there’s a town here! Palm Beach has some amazing restaurants, parks, bars and yes, beaches. Make sure you save at least an hour or two to check them out between charters.

Palm Beach Fishing Spots

Palm Beach is surrounded by water in every direction, so there’s plenty of choice when it comes to fishing. Here are some of our favorite spots, to help you get the lay of the land:
 

Palm Beach Canals

Why travel to fish when you’ve got great fresh and saltwater canals flowing through the whole town? Palm Beach canal fishing can get you on Bass, Snook, and a ton of other great gamefish.
 

Okeeheelee Park

Just a couple of miles south of town, this is one of the best places to sample the area’s great Bass fishing, with easy parking and lots of water.
 

Lake Worth Lagoon

Lake Worth Lagoon separates Palm Beach from the mainland, so it’s right on your doorstep. Its shallow waters are full of Snook, Tarpon, and Redfish.
 

Local Reefs

Head out past Palm Beach Inlet and you hit deep-water reefs just a few miles from shore. You can find some seriously tasty food fish here, such as Snapper, Grouper, and even Tilefish.
 

Sailfish Alley

Named after its neat trick of funneling Sailfish right past the shore, this is one of the best fisheries for Atlantic Sailfish on the planet, and it’s an easy cruise away!
 

Gulf Stream

If you’re looking for the biggest fish in the sea, it doesn’t get much better than this. Blue and White Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, Yellowfin and Blackfin Tuna - they’re all waiting just 10-20 miles offshore.

Types of Fishing

So you looked at that list and said, “yes please, I’ll have it all”. Well, that’s awesome, you won’t regret it. If you do need to narrow it down a bit, you can normally expect to go on one of these three trips:
 

Light & Fly Tackle for Bass and Snook

With a mix of salt and freshwater and some top gamefish in both, there’s a lot to like about Palm Beach canal fishing. Local guides offer kayak, boat, or on-foot trips exploring these waters with fly or light spinning gear. There more than just two gamefish to fight, though. Tarpon and Redfish love the murky waters of the Lake Worth Lagoon, and you can find exotic invaders like Clown Knife Fish in freshwater canals.
 
With all of this, you’ll need a variety of tackle. Fly anglers should pack a stiff 8-weight for the Bass but will need something a lot stronger for the area’s Tarpon and even its Snook. There are several fly fishing experts that provide quality tackle if you don’t have room to bring all your own. Conventional anglers will also be catered for, with light and finesse spinning rods and a variety of plugs, spoons, and crankbaits to match the range of species.
 

Reef fishing for Snapper and Grouper

Palm Beach reef fishing is some of the most productive food fishing in the state. The main reason is that it gets so deep so fast. The floor drops 200 feet in no time and just keeps sinking after that. Chumming and drift fishing Palm Beach’s inshore reefs is great family fun and bags you a ton of tasty table fare like Snapper, Grouper, Hogfish, and Amberjack. 
 
Head out further (and we’re only talking an hour’s cruise here) and you can try deep dropping for monster Snappers and Groupers. You’ll also find Tilefish, Barrelfish, Wreckfish, Gnomefish, and other weird and wonderful creatures. This is heavy tackle territory, with electric reels and blinker lights a common sight on the deepest reefs.
 

Deep Sea Fishing for Sailfish and Marlin

All these wacky bottom fish are fun, but if you want big fish that don’t look like they’ve been exposed to radiation or hit by a truck, there’s plenty of action on the surface. Palm Beach deep sea fishing starts so close to town you barely have time to take in the view and offers some of the best big game battles in the country. Sailfish are the local superstars, showing up in large packs just a few miles from shore. Make the long and perilous journey out to the Gulf Stream (usually no more than 20 miles) and you can find Blue and White Marlin, Tuna, Wahoo, and Mahi Mahi.
 
Most of the big game action focuses on trolling, with both lures and dressed baits bringing in their share of fish. Some boats have tuna tubes and can get you trolling bridled Bonito or Skipjack, too. Sailfish are the exception to the rule here and are normally taken on kites. Kite fishing is an iconic part of the Gold Coast sportfishing scene, and nothing gets big fins poking out of the water like skipping baits across its surface.

Need to know

Licenses are included on all Palm Beach fishing charters. If you’re fishing freshwater or from land, you’ll need to buy your own fishing license. Some other important things to pack are a hat, shades, sunscreen, and an extra layer in case it gets cold. If you’re heading offshore, do yourself a favor and take some Dramamine before you go, especially if you’re not used to being on the water.

January

There are a million things you can do in Palm Beach in January but if you're a keen angler you know what you'll be focusing on. Sailfish season is in full swing, and the skies are full of colorful kites.

February

The Sailfish are still biting like crazy offshore, as are Wahoo and Blackfin Tuna. Deep below them, Swordfish patrol the deep in search of blinking lights to guide them onto your hook.

March

The Sailfish bite tapers off in March, but White Marlin show up to take their place. Inshore, Snook and Redfish are biting hard and Peacock Bass are getting more active, too.

April

Marlin season is in full swing by April, with both Blue and White Marlin tearing through the Gulf Stream's warm waters. Yellowfin Tuna also show up this time of year, making for a real feast.

May

Peacock Bass fishing really heats up in May, with monster Bass devouring flies, lures, and live shiners like there's no tomorrow. If you get bored of that, walk ten feet and target huge Snook instead.

June

The Silver Kings come barreling into town to join forces with Snook and Redfish in Lake Worth Lagoon. The reefs also get busier as the waters get warmer, making for awesome food fishing.

July

Take some time away from the water to enjoy the town's amazing Independence Day celebrations. There's a street party, parade, fireworks, and lots of fun.

August

The Full Moon Wahoo Tournament kicks off in August. This is your chance to battle the cheetahs of the sea as they ride the tides in the wake of the full moon.

September

Head offshore and drop your lines a thousand feet or more to do battle with monster Swordfish. This is one of the most prestigious food fish on the planet, and one of the hardest fighters, too!

October

The Tuna bite is still going strong offshore, and Wahoo and Mahi Mahi are in season as well. Bag yourself some tasty big game brutes then celebrate with a beer at Oktoberfest.

November

Sailfish are back in town and tearing up baits out in the Alley. This is your chance at double-digit hookups, so jump aboard and get ready for the fight of your life!

December

Sailfish, Wahoo, Blackfin Tuna, King Mackerel, Barracuda, Amberjack - there are plenty of big fish out there just waiting for a fight. It would be rude to ignore them, right?

We had a great trip with Capt. Bob and mate Steve. They worked hard to put us on the fish getting bonita and mahi on the boat. We hooked a sail but couldn't make it come tight, hopefully next time. It was still a great fight while it lasted especially watching it jump. We'd definitely book Lucky Dog again!

Captain Bob rocks. He put us on the fish and worked his tail off the entire trip. Boat is clean, equipment is top notch and the captain knows his craft. Easy-going and accommodating but tuned in for the duration. He will be our first call any time we want to fish PB.

We did this for my son's 21st birthday. all of them caught fish and had an amazing time. This charter and captain Rob made all the difference. This wasn't just a fishing trip it was an adventure, an experience for these guys from New York, PA, GA, TN and AL. They all got to experience open water, different fish, and learning something entirely new. They all walked away with new memories and stronger friendships! You won't find a better charter out there and u sure won't find a captain Rob.

Great morning with family and friends on Lucky Dog. The bite was slow the first half of the trip but Capt. Bob kept working and trying different rigs, depths, etc. He worked had to get us on some Bonita and it was great. We landed 5 and everyone had a chance to catch fish. Credit to Bob for his work. I’ll be reaching out to Lucky Dog again!

Easy to find. Captain Bob was great, the weather and fish didn't cooperate, but we did catch a few fish for the kids to reel in. I would do it again and keep an eye on the weather report.

He did a great job and used multiple techniques to get us into the fish, you cannot ask for more. We look forward to fishing with him again in the future!

Great trip, very knowledgeable and experienced fishing captain. I would recommend Lucky Dog for inexperienced and experience anglers alike. He will try and catch fish and has live bait!!!! Given the cost of live bait many charters won’t use it or charge extra. Here it was included! Gear was top notch as well as the boat.

This was an unforgettable day with Captain Bob! Day started out hooking up to many species with keepers being a jack, triggers, and mutton snapper. Can’t forget the king fish getting sniped by an 8 ft bull shark, still a great fight! To top it off a double sail hookup! I almost forgot about the bonita my brother caught. Amazing experience for a fishing minded family. Buy the live bait!! 10/10
