Drift Fishing in Pompano Beach

Drift fishing Pompano Beach is a great way to catch some awesome fish without shelling out for a private charter. The local waters are riddled with reefs made of anything from concrete blocks to old boats to luxury sedans (modern art is lost on us, but the fish sure love it). The sea floor drops so suddenly that even a half day on the slowest boat in town will have you fishing in 100 feet of water.
 
What can I expect from a drift fishing trip?
No matter what else you get from your day, you can certainly expect lots of fish. Grouper, Snapper, Triggerfish, Porgies, Grunts, and Amberjack will litter the deck by the end of the trip. Chances are you will also see a fair few Barracuda, Bonito, Tuna, King Mackerel, Mahi Mahi - even a Sailfish if you’re lucky!
 
The fishing itself will be slightly different depending on what time of day you go. Morning and afternoon trips will be spent drifting over the reefs, focusing on more mobile fish like Barracuda, King Mackerel, Tuna, and Mahi Mahi. This is where you might catch that glimpse of that elusive sail cutting through the water or even feel the pound on your line as it hits your bait.
 
Evening and night trips will be spent anchored up over the captain’s favorite fishing spots. These trips are all about the bottom fish and are the best way to bring in huge big Snapper and Grouper. Depending on how far out you go, you can also target deep-water species like Tilefish on evening trips. These make excellent eating and are well worth fishing into the night for.
 
How much will it cost?
An adult ticket on one of the local party boats will cost around $40-$45. Tickets for kids and ride-alongs usually cost around $30, so this really is a trip you can get the whole family together for. You can even get your catch cooked up afterward at one of the local restaurants for a delicious meal on a budget.
 
What should I bring?
All tackle and bait is usually provided on Pompano Beach drift fishing trips, although this is definitely something to check before you book. You are welcome to bring your own tackle along if you want to, except fly fishing gear, which is often ruled out as a hazard on large-party fishing boats.
 
The things you absolutely should bring are much the same as any charter: appropriate shoes, a couple of extra layers, sunglasses, sunscreen, and of course, a big cooler to load up with tasty fish. If you’re not used to being on the water it may also be a good idea to pack some Dramamine - big boats tend to be pretty stable but it’s always better safe than sorry.

Ask the captain for the right clothing. I expected sunny, hot weather, but I forgot a rain jacket for the cold morning breeze. The captain prepares everything else.
