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!

It was unseasonably cool (highs in low 70s) but fish were still out there. Just a bit of patience needed. Morning probably better than afternoon.

Check out the fishing fleet ahead of time to see what's being caught. Fish for what's biting now and you won't be disappointed.

Beginner or avid fisherman. Young or old. Family friendly. You don't have to go out far to catch great fish. Which gives you more time of actual fishing. Love this place!

Go with Shawn Safris. We booked a half day and were on the water close to six hrs. He goes all out to make sure you have the best chance to catch fish and his price is way reasonable.

Challenging seas had defeated the folks on the morning trip, but we were forewarned and prepared—after two hours of trolling we were rewarded with two keepers: black fin tuna! We took the catch to a “hook and cook” restaurant in Pompano and had a great meal. Benny was wonderful to be with, and we had a great experience.

By far one of my most enjoyable deep sea charters I have taken, I have been on 5 other charters, Captain Robert did an excellent job and was very informative and most importantly knew his whereabouts. We took a four hour charter caught two beautiful mahi-mahi and one large wahoo over 40 inches. Thank you again Captian Robert for all the fun great conversation and most importantly a wonderful experience for myself and my son we will surely be back when we are in the Fort Lauderdale area. A++

Captain John was great! He was knowledgeable and professional! He and the first mate worked perfectly together. They both knew what the other was going to do before they did it. The four legged second mate Rusty was a true sailor! We were catching a lot of fish but had to quit early. Staying at a hotel, so we could only catch what we could eat for lunch. Captain John recommend the Fish Shack to cook our catch. Lunch was fantastic! Thank you John for the great memories!

Taylor and his team provided an excellent day for my family. We started by going out only a mile or so, catching some nice fish. Later we went back to 30ft water closer to shore for more fishing and we caught quite a few fish, constant action which is always fun. Very good quality fishing rods, which is super important. Also nice and professional captain. All in all, a clear 5-star experience. We will be back in the summer.

Everything about the trip was great except for the fish not biting. Captain Lou and 1st Mate Keith were very hospitable and friendly. No bites at all until the last half hour and then just 3 small bait fish a small rainbow runner. Understand that's just how it goes sometimes. We did afternoon so would recommend trying the morning if you can.
