West Palm Beach Fishing Charters

Today was tough...thought they would bite better... pretty breezy, we went on the troll with Bruce and his son Michael. The bonitas were biting, but I couldn't find any mahi. We got one King Mackerel and lost a small Wahoo at the boat. The drift produced a short Red Grouper, Porgy and some reef fish. Nice day but tough fishing !

Sailfish Marina Charters

The Napoli family joined us today for a split troll/drift trip. Today the troll was better, we landed a barracuda, bonita, skipjack tuna, lesser amberjack and jumped off a Sailfish. The wind and tides finally cooperated ! The boys had a great time and tonight they are eating their catch at Sailfish Marina.

Palm Beach Fishing Charter

The wind has been blowing for a week from the east and today was no exception. Matt and his family decided to fish the Intercoastal with me and we had a very pleasant morning. Dan hooked up with a Goliath Grouper and it was a stalemate after twenty minutes when the fish got back into some structure and the 100 pound line chaffed thru. He had the largest and the smallest fish ! Lauren was high hook with mangrove snappers and blue runners. everybody had a very nice time and we didn't have to fight the wind and waves.

South current today and we found very slow trolling, so we switched over to drift fishing and Coulton and his buddies had a great time and got the ingredients for a wonderful lunch at Sailfish Marina.

Kevin and his buddies joined us today, breezy and cold out there! I think the strong high pressure system kind of shut down the bite, but we still managed to put together a catch between trolling and drift fishing. New motors are performing great !

Sailfish Marina Charters

Rob and Chris joined us today for a split trolling, drift charter. We started the trip off with a bang, breaking off a sailfish right at the mouth of the inlet. We weren't expecting that ! The Bonita trolling was excellent, we quickly released 6 and kept one for bait. Within 45 minutes of leaving the inlet we were ready to start our drift and we were still setting out our lines when a live bait got smoked by a small wahoo. He was large enough to bite through the line though above the wire and get away ! We then started catching reef fish, releasing grunts and a red grouper, while boxing up some large triggerfish. I think the highlight catch of the trip was the very fat King Mackerel we caught on a flat lined ballyhoo on a spinning rod. Everybody had a great time and the weather even behaved !

West Palm Beach Charters- Sailfish Marina

I love trips with Kids ! Today Rich joined us with 11 year old Luke and 12 year old Jay and we had fun ! We started out by trolling up half a dozen Bonita, catch and release action. Once the boys had that under control we switched over to drift fishing. Four knots of current made it challenging for them, but they caught porgies, grunts, triggerfish, and a King Mackerel. We steamed home, tonight they get to eat thee fruits of their labor!

Palm Beach Charters

Jason brought his family out today and we're out there trolling Bonitas when his 16 year old son says "I want to catch a shark" ! Well that's all Chad and I had to hear and out came the heavy gear. It didn't take too long before we were hooked up, but it did take quite a while to get the fish to the boat. It's not everyday that you get to catch a dinosauer, so the family decided to harvest the fish for a jaw mount.

Sailfish Marina Charters

Doreen brought her family out today and they decided they didn't want to spend too much time trolling, so after one Bonita we switched over to the drift. There was much less current today so we didn't have to use the grapple and the bottom fishing was action packed ! Highlight of the trip, 14 year old Sharley was reeling in a blue runner when it was chased by a 4 foot long wahoo, but then it got eaten right at the boat by a big Bull Shark. Sharley is not going to forget this trip ! Lots of action with porgies, grunts, yellowtails, rec groupers and triggerfish .

West Palm Beach Charters

Great trip this morning, Carter Spohn and his family joined us. We started out trolling to the north and immediately got slammed by a Barracuda as soon as we left the inlet. This was followed up 3 more hits by Bonita so we had our trolling action pretty quickly today. We then went on the drift but the current was so fast we had to drop the grapple to slow out drift down. This worked pretty good and we landed a bucket full of porgies, grunts, and sand tiles. We released red grouper, parrotfish, remoras, and queen and grey triggerfish.
