Palm Beach, Florida is an upscale town located in South Florida. The impressive city stretches 18-miles across a barrier island on the East Coast, separated from the mainland by Lake Worth Lagoon. Filled with swanky hotels, upscale boutiques, art galleries and five-star restaurants, Palm Beach is always worth a visit. Even though the city is known as Florida’s Golf Capital, there’s more to Palm Beach than hitting the greens. Anglers in the area fish the bountiful waters for inshore and offshore adventures. The weather is perfect for both sports, and the beautiful city has earned a reputation as one of Florida’s best playgrounds for adults. Golf, fishing, kayaking, swimming, boating, tanning on the beach… Palm Beach is definitely the place to visit to get away from “adulting.” Don’t confuse the city of Palm Beach with Palm Beach county. The county is the third-most populous in Florida and is located just north of Broward County. Familiar cities such as West Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Boynton Beach, Delray Beach and Boca Raton are found in Palm Beach county. Lake Okeechobee rests on the west side of the county, just a short drive for anglers looking for a freshwater trip.
Back to the city of Palm Beach... Palm Beach inshore charters get to choose either side of the island to cast their line. On the west side of the island is Lake Worth Lagoon, a fantastic fishery. To the East is the Atlantic Ocean. Decisions, decisions. Inshore fish species such as snook, redfish, trout, flounder, and amberjack are usually found on both sides, so it’s just a matter if the angler is looking for the calmer waters of the lagoon, or not. In Lake Worth Lagoon, anglers catch snook, tarpon, trout, and amberjack. The mangrove shores and shallow waters are abundant habitats for anglers to cast their lines. Fly fishing anglers can hook on snook with poppers and shrimp-like patterns. Larger snook in Lake Worth Lagoon average about 17 pounds. They are silver colored with an identifiable, prominent black lateral line that runs from just behind their gills to their tail. Snook are very popular with anglers due to their typical willingness to hit well-presented bait and the spirited fight they put up. Tarpon fishing in Palm Beach is another great option. Anglers can find tarpon all around the barrier island, especially during the early morning hours around sunrise. Tarpon, or “silver kings,” are acrobatic and elusive fish that keep anglers coming back for more again and again. They are silver in color, and are incredibly fast and strong, and can grow to 200 pounds, hence the nickname. Tarpon feed on a variety of small bait such as mullet, sardines, pinfish, and blue crabs. Anglers will drift bait near the silver king, close enough that it gets their attention but not too close that it spooks them. Once the hook is set, the fight begins. Tarpon are notorious for exploding out of the water and thrashing about to throw the hook nearly immediately after hookup. Once the silver king is landed, anglers take a quick picture then carefully release back into the water. Tarpon are catch-and-release throughout the state of Florida.
Offshore charters in Palm Beach fish the beautiful and bountiful Atlantic Ocean. Snapper, grouper, cobia, king mackerel, mahi mahi, marlin, sailfish, and shark are just a few species found just a few miles from the coast. Many captains will head to the Gulf Stream for their excursion. Not to be confused with the Gulf of Mexico, the Gulf Stream is a river of current flowing through the Atlantic Ocean. It’s only about 20-40 miles from the coast of Florida; just a quick trip for Palm Beach charters. In the Gulf Stream Palm Beach captains will troll for mahi mahi, tuna, and marlin. Mahi mahi, also known as dolphin and dorado, are top water species typically found near floating grass beds or debris. They have intense coloration of yellow, blue and green, and can grow up to 4 feet long. They are often caught on trolling rigs, although live and cut bait can be used as well. Once on the hook, mahi are known for being a good fight. A large mahi on lighter tackle can take up to an hour to land. When the first mahi is landed, captains will often keep the fish hooked in the water to keep the school around and hook another. Back at the dock, Palm Beach charters will clean and fillet mahi for their clients, who then fire up the grill for a delicious fish dinner.
