January
Eastern Florida attracts plenty of fish year-round, so come and start the year as you mean to go on. Amberjack, Groupers, and Kingfish can be found offshore, with plenty of Snappers, Pompano, and Drum inshore.
February
Fishing in February is one of Hillsboro Inlet’s best-kept secrets. You’ll wonder where all the tourists are, as you have the pick of the fishing to yourself whether it’s in the shallows or the deep waters.
March
There’s an offshore awakening come spring, with Cobia, Barracuda, and Sailfish joining the deepwater party. Closer to shore, target these beauties along with Groupers for a thrilling fishing experience.
April
You’ll feel the season starting to heat up as more and more fish make their way into the inlet and along the Gulf Stream. Hit up Pompano Beach’s Seafood Festival after a day on the water to let the joy live on. 
May
It’s no wonder that the “Saltwater Shootout” is in May as peak season kicks in. Trophy Marlin, Mahi Mahi, and Cobia are in abundance offshore, with Redfish, Groupers, and Snappers populating the shallows.
June
You’ll face a real dilemma come June as Tarpon, Snook, and Sharks are at their hottest in the inshore waters, while the offshore fun continues. Wherever you go, you’ll see why anglers flock to Hillsboro Inlet in June.
July
The fishing is at its best with the offshore waters offering plenty of options, and the shallows overflowing with delicious fish. Get whatever you want out of your fishing excursion – just don’t forget the sunscreen!
August
Make the most of your summer and get out on the deep waters offshore. Head out to the Gulf Stream and get your hands on delicious Tuna, Swordfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and many more prized fish.
September
It may be back to school for the kids, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy the inlet's riches. The fish are still aplenty both inshore and offshore, so extend your summer into fall and fill the boat with plenty of fish.
October
Nearshore is the place to be come October, with the waters getting choppy offshore and plenty of exciting fish populating the reefs. Go after Cobia, Barracuda, Amberjack, and more to get your fishing fix.
November
Attention shifts inshore as the season draws to a close, with plenty of prized, delicious creatures making their way back to the shallows. Redfish, Pompano, and Snappers are up for grabs, so get your fish on!
December
End the year in style with a fishing trip out of Hillsboro Inlet in December. Kingfish, Black Drum, Amberjack, and Snappers roam the waters freely, giving you the chance to take something tasty home for the holidays.

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.
