Frequently Asked Questions about Fishing Charters in Pompano Beach

According to customer reviews, It's Never Enough Sport Fishing – 45', Killin' Time Charters, and Reel Floridian Fishing are some of the most popular fishing charters in Pompano Beach, Florida. Full list of top fishing charters in Pompano Beach.

The average price for a private 4 hour Pompano Beach fishing trip is $673, while an 8 hour private trip will cost you $1,006 based on prices on FishingBooker.com.

It's Never Enough Sport Fishing – 45' and Reel Floridian Fishing received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Pompano Beach.

The most popular fish species you can target are Dolphin (Mahi Mahi), King Mackerel (Kingfish), and Wahoo. Top fishing techniques include Light Tackle, Heavy Tackle, and Trolling. Offshore fishing, reef fishing, and wreck fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

The excellence of Pompano Beach fishing charters can hardly be considered a secret. The area’s deep waters and endless reefs have drawn many accomplished captains to the area. What makes the town’s fishing special is the fact that the water drops very quickly, allowing you to target even the most prized of species within a mile or two offshore.

These lively underwater landscapes hold large numbers of Grouper, Snapper, Triggerfish, and Hogfish. Head out a little further, and you will find Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, big King Mackerel, and Wahoo. More seasoned anglers will probably already know about Pompano Beach’s specialty – Swordfish. Less than 20 miles from shore the waters are deep enough to hold it, making both night and daytime trips a local favorite.

Having so many underwater structures means you will be spoiled for choice on a half day trip out of Pompano Beach. If you stay out longer, take full advantage of the awesome deep sea fishing on offer. Head up to Sailfish Alley, where one lucky boat once caught and released 83 Sailfish in a single day, or go 15 miles out to the Gulf Stream, where you can find Marlin, Sailfish, and so much more.

If you’re coming to Pompano Beach with the goal of setting off into the deep blue waters offshore, your best bet will be the charters located in the vicinity of the Hillsboro Inlet. From here, you’ll be able to find an experienced captain and a seaworthy vessel able to lead you to the catch of a lifetime!

Rules & Regulations

There are several strict closed seasons in Florida, most notably for many species of Grouper, which can be caught only from May onwards. You will not need a fishing license when fishing aboard a registered Pompano Beach fishing charter as you are covered by the boat’s license.

January

What better way to kick off the year than by dropping some lines for tasty bottom fish like Snapper and Tilefish? Trolling for huge Sailfish more your style? Whatever you want, you've got it here.

February

The annual Pompano Beach Sailfish Challenge draws the country's top anglers for an explosion of foam and flying kites. Book well in advance for the chance of 20-bite-strong sessions offshore.

March

As the weather warms up, so does the bite on the reefs, with Snappers, Groupers, Tilefish and Triggerfish making for great food fishing. Deep in the dark, the first Swordfish are beginning to show up, too.

April

The blue water action starts to heat up, with Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Marlin showing up offshore just as the Sailfish start packing for their summer vacation. This is a great chance to catch them all at once.

May

May kicks off the season for various species of Grouper and they're just one small slice of the awesome fishing on the wrecks and reefs nearby. Jump aboard a drift boat and catch yourself some lunch!

June

The Pompano Beach Saltwater Slam is held every year in June and promises awesome fishing in various categories. Want to get away from the pack? Head offshore in search on monster Swordfish.

July

July is peak Swordfish season and the perfect chance to target these awesome abyssal hunters. This is not for the faint-hearted but the rewards are huge, making the battle count even more.

August

The Pompano Beach Saltwater Showdown promises awesome offshore action for anyone ambitious enough to sign up. This times well with peak Blue Marlin season, everyone's favorite time of year.

September

September is a good month for any style of fishing. the Swordfish are in their prime, the Marlin are still in town, and on the reefs the Grouper are getting huge, making for the perfect meal at the end of the day.

October

the Sailfish show up just as the other pelagic fish start to leave, because sometimes nature's nice like that. This is your last solid chance of big Swordfish, too, so grab it with both hands and hold on tight.

November

Sailfish are back in their prime and the reefs are always bursting with life. The cooler weather will make reeling in those huge bottom fish a lot easier, too, so get out there and grab some!

December

What better way to spend the winter than catching delicious bottom fish? Book in for a full day and you will also have plenty of time to enjoy the awesome Sailfish action. Happy holidays indeed!

We had a great time with Captain Anthony. Overall a very knowledgeable and kind guy that clearly loves what he does. We were able to catch two kingfish and one bonita. The bite could’ve been better but that’s just how fishing can be sometimes.

It was a great day on the water. Calm seas, picturesque view and beautiful South Florida weather were a great start, but our charter hosts made the rest perfect as well. We had 4 teenage boys with little to no fishing experience. Capt Ron and mate Blake found some fish and we enjoyed bent rods and tight lines. The mahi mahi we went home with didn't sacrifice his life in vain, as every bite was enjoyed by the hungry fishermen. Great way to spend a day on vacation!

Started off right on time and had wet lines in 15 minutes. Captain Tom introduced my friend to kite fishing which is awesome in itself. Unfortunately the fish just weren’t biting. That is until 15 minutes before the end of the charter. We hooked a pretty good sized sailfish, somewhere in the 7-8 foot range. We stayed out until we had him next to the boat. Took some pics. Tagged him. And released him. Excellent day.
