trip description for Swordfish Trip - 30' Dusky in Pompano Beach

Head out with Captain Tyler for an epic offshore adventure chasing the elusive Swordfish! Your Captain will start the day by rigging and prepping specialty baits for this trip prior to your arrival. A stop at the bait patch is also necessary as you will be fishing your way out to the deep water; for these Swordfish trips, you will head offshore up to 30 miles. On top of chasing Swords, you can also have opportunities for Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Wahoo, and maybe even a Marlin on this trip as well. Once you get out to their swordfish spot, your Captain will deep drop one line then drift along the ledge for up to 1 hour at a time. Your Captain will make as many drifts as time will allow and you will fish our way back to shore. Swordfishing is a very patient process. But the rewards are well worth it! For your trip, you will be aboard one of their 30' Dusky that gives you a first-class fishing experience off Florida's Atlantic Coast. Your comfort and safety are their highest priority, and they earn their stripes every day by making your catch the biggest haul back at the dock! Captain Tyler will supply all licenses, bait, and gear! They will also provide a cooler and ice. All they ask is to keep in mind how long you will be on the water when bringing drinks and snacks! You can also bring an extra ice chest to take your catch home with you or have one of several local companies ship the fish home. Read More

Hiring a guide provides a number of benefits and many choose to book a fishing guide for a combination of experience, local knowledge, convenience, and cost-effectiveness.

Working with experienced fishing guides who know the best local spots and techniques can dramatically increase your odds of a great day. Having someone who is on the water every day and knows the area like the back of their hand is going to give you the best chances of success.

Booking a guide is also more cost effective, especially if you only get out a handful of times per year.

Pompano Beach Fishing Overview

Pompano Beach is a well-known destination for fishing enthusiasts due to its deep waters and abundant reefs. The town's unique feature is its rapid water drop, allowing for the targeting of prized species within a mile or two offshore. The underwater landscapes are teeming with Grouper, Snapper, Triggerfish, and Hogfish, while further out, Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, King Mackerel, and Wahoo can be found. Swordfish is a specialty of Pompano Beach, with the waters less than 20 miles from shore being deep enough to hold it, making both night and daytime trips a local favorite.

Half-day trips out of Pompano Beach offer a variety of underwater structures to choose from, while full-day trips provide access to deep-sea fishing. Sailfish Alley, where 83 Sailfish were caught and released in a single day, and the Gulf Stream, where Marlin and Sailfish can be found, are popular destinations. Charters located near the Hillsboro Inlet are the best option for those seeking to venture into the deep blue waters offshore, with experienced captains and seaworthy vessels available.

Florida has several strict closed seasons, including for many species of Grouper, which can only be caught from May onwards. Fishing aboard a registered Pompano Beach fishing charter does not require a fishing license, as the boat's license covers passengers.

Pompano Beach Freshwater Fishing

Lake Ida is on the Northside of Delray Beach and is home to the usual freshwater species including largemouth bass, panfish, and carp. What makes the fishing on this lake so special is the exotic species that thrive in the tropical Florida climate. Further inland, and known as one of the best places to catch largemouth bass in the world, Lake Okeechobee will not leave you disappointed. With incredible fish like peacock bass and clown knife fish whi

Pompano Beach Inshore Fishing

The inshore fishing opportunities in Pompano Beach do not get the recognition they deserve. With Canals, backwaters, and waterways full of sportfish like redfish, spotted sea trout, sheepshead, and black drum, these inshore waters are teeming with life. With other species like jack crevalle, pompano, and flounder also inhabiting these waters, there are plenty of fish to chase.

If you show up to Pompano Beach at the right time of year, bucket list species including tarpon and snook are hunting in the area. The fishing is sure to be exciting when the bite peaks in the fall and the snook are firing on all cylinders. These two bucket list fish can be hard to find let alone catch in other areas, but these explosive fish can be found throughout the canals and backwaters in Pompano Beach.

Pompano Beach Nearshore Fishing

With plenty of nearby reefs, structures, and baitfish, mackerel, kingfish, and various snapper species can be found in the waters just offshore. With various species of snapper like mutton, mangrove, and yellowtail you can drop bait deep year-round.

Catching mackerel and kingfish is an action-packed experience with these aggressive predators. With big blowups, and pound for pound some of the hardest fighting fish, this is an experience that’s hard to beat. With various species of snapper like mutton, mangrove, and yellowtail you can drop bait deep year-round.

Pompano Beach Deep Sea Fishing

Pompano Beach deep sea fishing offers some of the most productive open water fishing in the world with reefs and the Gulf Stream holding a variety of species just offshore. Running out to deep bluewater means getting a shot at massive trophy fish like tuna, mahi-mahi, wahoo, marlin, swordfish, and sailfish. Yellowfin tuna and the far offshore bluefin tuna are exceptional fighters that crush bait and take line with ease. Big tuna can fight for hours and test even the best anglers. Another formidable fish, the blue marlin, comes on strong in the summer months. This is followed by the swordfish and sailfish in the winter, with mahi-mahi, tuna, and wahoo biting year-round.

The opportunity to catch a massive sailfish is a big draw for many anglers on Florida’s Atlantic Coast and Pompano Beach just might be the best place to do it. The sailfish and swordfish can be caught throughout the cooler months but bites peak in the winter. Kite fishing is a unique fishing style that specifically targets these lightning-fast fish and it’s an experience like no other. There are always giant fish to be caught with an offshore charter out of Pompano Beach.

    Captain Carlos was awesome! He provided us with a great time on his boat for our iguana hunt. He had a great attitude, was very informative, and had a lot of patience since we were newbs to shooting iguanas. He definitely knows the area and what to do, but most importantly knows how to make the trip memorable. We would for sure book another tour/trip for a different adventure with him if we decide to come back to Florida. Thank you Captain Carlos! You’re the man.

    Charlie was a fantastic guide, my buddies and I will definitely contact him again for iguana, Python, or gator hunts. We’re military and got along great with him. Took us to a nice canal, not much water traffic at all, so we were first on the water hunting, not picking up scraps left from other hunters. Went during the summer, which winter is better, but still shot over 20 iguanas. Was a great time, highly recommend Charlie.

    Captain Bill took me, my son in law and two grandsons on an iguana hunt. We all had a great time and a fair amount of success under Captain Bills guidance.

    Andrew was an excellent and joyfull guide. He had us on peacock bass within minutes of our start and we caught the trifecta of peacocks, clown knife fish and large mouth. My son and I will definitely use him next time!
