Palm Beach Summertime Fishing

Palm Beach County is at the epicenter of epic Florida fishing. The summertime is one of the peak times to come to this fishery and experience everything from backwater bass and exotics to snook and tarpon. From its backcountry estuaries and nearshore underwater structures, and to the offshore zones, the continental shelf, and the Gulfstream, Palm Beach has a range of habitats that has created an incredibly diverse fishery. In the summer, this fishing here really heats up.
