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.

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

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.

    We had an amazing trip with Eric. He put us on the fish right from the start! Best fishing experience we have had. We will definitely be requesting him again when we return. He was super knowledgeable and had answer to every question. His passion for fishing really shows through making the experience even better!

    Captain Tyler took our family out for an afternoon excursion. The sport fishing was a bit soft, but Tyler put us on a couple of small game fish while we were hunting for monsters. The group agreed to move to the more shallow reefs, where we put upward of 30 fish in the boat over 90 minutes, including several keepers with meat on the bones. Tyler cleaned the fish for us and recommended a restaurant nearby that would cook our catch, which meant an easy and clean dinner for Mom! We had a great time with Tyler.

    Captain Ron and Chris were absolutely amazing, my daughter had gotten very sea sick and they were extremely helpful in making sure she was okay. They were very knowledgeable and informative with how everything works and what we needed to do. They are very personable funny and ensured all of us had an amazing time. I would definitely recommend for anyone and everyone!

    Booked with Captain Anthony on short notice. Best decision we’ve made in a long time. Started fishing within 15min from getting on the boat and caught a once in a lifetime fish right away. Great company while fishing and very professional. Captain and mate really do do everything to put you on fish. We will definitely be calling Captain Anthony again for our next adventure! Thank you for the great experience!

    We were fishing in late December and the fish just were not biting. But he TRIED. Ended up catching maybe ten keepers. He offered a return trip at half price. And was super considerate when two passengers were sick. Returned to the pier to drop them off and then took the others back out to try again.
