Palm Beach County is one of the fishing capitals of the world for good reason. The Gulf Stream, a warm and swift Atlantic Ocean current that originates in the Gulf of Mexico, is closest to land near Palm Beach and Jupiter Inlet, providing abundant amounts of pelagic fish species as close as ¼ mile offshore.

If you don’t have a boat of your own, we have compiled this list of friendly local fishing charters for your convenience. The main target species in our area are mahi-mahi, kingfish, wahoo, tuna, sailfish, snook, snapper, grouper, and tripletail. Swordfish charters are also available for a pricier fee since a lot more specialty knowledge and work goes into a successful trip.

A few sailfish have been chasing flying fish relatively early in the season. Saturday or Sunday’s forecast of north winds may contribute to the bite a little, and a good bet at getting them to eat would be kite fishing with a hearty bait like goggle-eyes or blue runners in 200-400’ of water. Small dolphin have been pretty consistent offshore, as well as football-sized blackfin tuna. Target both by trolling with small-skirted bonita strips at depths of 120-500’.

Kingfish and large mutton snapper have been eating sardines near 120 – 200’, and yellowtail snapper has been showing up in strong numbers.

Inshore, the mullet run is still hot, and snook, jacks, tarpon, ladyfish, and redfish aren’t far behind
