Fishing for fun

The Palm Beaches boast excellent fishing opportunities, both from piers and along the shoreline. Catching a fish is an added bonus, but the real reward is the peaceful time spent on the water, enjoying the cool breeze and scenic views.

Winter months entice anglers with the chance to snag a prized sailfish or a delicious mahi mahi. As spring unfolds and summer arrives, the waters teem with hard-fighting snook, wahoo, and blackfin tuna – a challenge for even the most seasoned angler. Bottom and drift fishing enthusiasts are never left out, with snappers and groupers always available in the rich Gulf Stream currents.

Fall brings a unique opportunity – the mullet run. During this time, pier fishing and surf casting become prime ways to target tarpon and snook drawn close to shore by the migrating baitfish.
