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.

Snook like warm water and structure. Palm Beach has plenty of both. In the summer snook fishing gets amped up alongside schools of baitfish. Find the baitfish and a snook is nearly a guarantee during this time of year (and in the right location).
