The Fish are biting in Pompano Beach! Sailfish, dolphin, kingfish, wahoo, cobia, tuna, snapper, king mackerel…and nothing tastes better than when you catch it and cook it up yourself! Are we talking fish fry???
A stay at a Beach Vacation Rentals property is a fisherman’s paradise, as Pompano Beach is known as South Florida’s Saltwater Fishing Capital. We have the closest big-game fishing to shore than anywhere in the United States. The Gulf Stream is right offshore, only a five minute run! Our sailfish are caught in sight of the beach.
Whether you charter a fishing boat with a captain, join a party fishing boat, drop a line from the 1,200-foot public fishing pier, or cast off from the sandy shore…you’ll find the fish biting in Pompano Beach. Then bring your catch back to your Beach Vacation Rentals home-away-from-home, and cook it up on the BBQ.
What makes fishing so great here? Besides lots of sunshine and fine outdoor weather year round, Pompano’s fishing fleet is just inside our barrier island at the inlet to the ocean. It’s just a ten-minute boat ride to the moorings conveniently located all along the reef….and deep blue waters are just beyond! You’ll have your line in the water in no time.
Did you know that the Gulf Stream comes closer to shore in Pompano Beach than anywhere else in the nation? So our water is warmer and clearer….and ohhhhhh all those fish!!!!
Pompano Beach celebrates it’s longtime fishing heritage by hosting a number of special events throughout the year: the annual Nautical Flea Market in January, followed by the huge annual Pompano Beach Seafood Festival in late April and the popular the Pompano Beach Fish Rodeo in mid-May — a Florida tradition since 1965. To cap off the year, thousands look forward to watching the Pompano Beach Holiday Boat Parade in December – the oldest continuous boat parade in the nation. These major events have drawn visitors and locals alike for decades.
