Salt Water Fishing

Palm Beach County Fishing Report
Salt Water Fishing
Boynton Beach is located just a few miles from the bountiful Atlantic Gulf Stream and is serviced by two local marinas. The legendary Gulf Stream is abundant with a wide variety of delicious fish including Sailfish, Marlin (pictured), Blackfin Tuna, Wahoo, Dolphin (known elsewhere as Mahi-Mahi), King Mackeral (high in Omega 3!), Red Snapper, Yellowtail Snapper, Sheepshead, Pompano and Bluefish. You can charter a boat, or hop aboard a driftboat (a lot cheaper-most depart three times a day) and within thirty minutes you'll be dropping your line into the Stream!

Notable catches off of Boynton Beach include a 60 pound Wahoo, 41 pound Dolphin, 28 pound Blackfin Tuna, and driftboat loads of Sailfish, Snapper and King Mackeral too numerous to count!

No Saltwater Fishing License Required when fishing from a charter or driftboat.

Boynton Inlet Fishing ClubOur club was formed in 1986 by anglers in Boynton Beach area to promote and enjoy sport fishing. We are open to all types of fishing among people of all ages and levels of experience from novice to professional. While most of our members have experience in saltwater fishing, many of us are avid freshwater anglers as well. Many of our members own boat, but not all. For beginners we have club members that will teach you. We have a true bias towards just having fun. The club is open to all beginners and experienced anglers. We hold meetings the fourth Tuesdays of each month at 7:00PM in the club house, as well as having regular fishing outings and plans to hold in house and open fishing tournaments in the not too far distant future. We publish a newsletter monthly.

We invite you to come meet us, participate in a discussion, and exchange some ideas. If you like what you see, we invite you to join our club. The clubhouse, also the home for the Boynton Coast Guard Auxiliary is located just south of Gateway Blvd. (NE 22nd Ave.) on Federal Highway in Boynton Beach, Florida. Enter the Park and drive towards the boat ramps and just before your car gets wet you will see the clubhouse on your left. Please visit our website at Bifc.org



Fresh Water Fishing

FLORIDA FRESHWATER RULES & REGULATIONS:
Florida Game & Freshwater Fish Commission

FreshWater FishingWith Lake Osborne to the north, Lake Ida to the south and countless canals criss-crossing in between, Boynton Beach is a freshwater angler's paradise! Largemouth bass (pictured), Sunshine bass, Bream, Bluegill and Catfish abound in plentiful numbers. On top of it all, one of America's largest freshwater bodies, Lake Okeechobee, is located only an hour's drive to the Northwest (where you'll also find some of the tastiest Catfish restaurants in the South!). You can fish like the pros by renting a small boat and using a rod & reel, or just take along a $2 cane pole, float and a cup of earthworms. Find some shade to sit under, cast out the worm and it won't be long before you'll see that plastic float slip under the water!

The Florida Largemouth bass record is 20 pounds, two ounces (top this record and you could retire on the endorsements alone!).
