Possibly the most popular game fish in Florida is the snook and palm beach county is home to a large population of snook of all sizes. Whether its big inlet snook in the summer, pitching 2lb mullet around seawalls in the fall during the mullet run or fishing docks and bridges year round with artificial or fly there is always something about the big linesiders that stir your dreams anytime you're not chasing them.
Palm Beach is also at the center of an epic freshwater fishery. Places like Lake Ida hold traditional favorites such as Largemouth Bass and Bluegill, but also expand into more recent global favorites such as Peacock Bass, Cichlids, and Clown Knifefish. Swamp to Sea offers these charters on both fly and light tackle, so no matter your bucket list fish and how you want to get it, Swamp to Sea has the locations, equipment, and most importantly the expertise to make that dream a reality.
For saltwater fishing, not much beats the fishery located in Palm Beach, Florida. The inshore fishery can get you on all of the Florida favorites. This includes Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, Jack Crevalle, and even Bonefish. As you venture further out into the nearshore waters you can expect pelagic and bottom-dwelling species to fill your day with drag screaming excitement. Palm Beach is along the portion of the Florida coastline that is close to the Gulf Stream. To add to this, there is a massive inter-coastal water system and various other outlets that feed directly into this fishery. This combination means that many species of fish frequent this area of Florida, and this opens the doors for you to enjoy many of the Florida staples when planing your Palm Beach fishing charter.
