West Palm Beach fishing charters offer a range of excursions. From quick flats boat trips in the area’s skinny waters to multi-day offshore adventures aboard some of the biggest cruisers you’ve ever seen. It’s the kind of town where you can spend your whole vacation fishing and not fish the same way twice!

Redfish and Snook call these waters home pretty much year-round. Head up towards Palm Beach Inlet and you can also get on seasonal catches of Tarpon during the early summer months. Battle big Sharks along the shoreline or drop some bait for tasty reef species like Grouper, Snapper, Hogfish, and even Amberjack. For a battle, wrestle with Mahi Mahi and Sailfish just a few miles offshore.

If you’d like to stay in the shallow waters, you’ll be delighted to know that Bass fishing in West Palm Beach is simply amazing. Peacock Bass swarm every available freshwater canal during their long summer spawning season. Largemouth Bass also love to hang out here, as well as exotic Clown Knife Fish.

The waters are so deep here that even a half day trip will give you a ton of options to work with. Spots like the Bridge Reef and the Playground will get you fishing in 100–200 feet of water within three miles of shore. Book in for a full day trip and you can hit awesome spots like Sailfish Alley, where the ocean’s greatest treasures are yours for the taking.

Rules & Regulations

All registered West Palm Beach fishing charters cover fishing licenses for everyone on board. For freshwater fishing or kayak trips, you will need to buy your own. You can do this online ahead of your trip or pick one up at a local tackle shop.

Due to bad memories of seasickness suffered on deep sea fishing trips I took when I was a kid, I chose Lake Clarke Shores and Captain Ricky for my daughter's first fishing trip. Couldn't be more pleased.

Florida has great fishing all year. Unless you have your own boat and are a native and know where to fish it just makes sense to hire a guide. You could easily go fishing 2 times a month and just get on the boat, catch fish and go home all for less than the cost of a boat payment.

Just got off the bot and we had the best time with Captain James and Julio. We had the best time getting to know them and learn about fishing, the ocean and life in Florida. When we hooked fish they were super patient explaining how to reel them in. Honestly the most relaxed and fun charter we have done. And there was a toilet 🤣🤣

Captain Mike had us on fish all day! One hookup lost to likely large shark. Boated King Mackerel, Sand Tile, Trigger Fish, Blue Wrasse, Yellowtail Snapper, Grunts, Porgies and more. Everyone joined the fun. Thank you skipper for a great ocean fishing adventure. We will be back. PS - grilled king with garlic, ginger and sesame oil is the way to go!
