Default Possible relocation-boynton beach area

Hello all. I have an opportunity to relocate with my current employer to the boynton beach area. I am familliar with the area, but not too much with the offshore fishing scene. I currently run a 28 cc up here in NJ (cape may)

?? how would you all rate the offshore trolling/ bottom fishing??
what is the best season of the year???
what does it take to get into a yellowfin tuna bite. (it will be tough for me to give up tuna fishing, but i would like to get into the wahoo/sailfish bite)

any info would be greatly appreciated.
thanks

Excellent fishing, much better than anything in NJ year round. YF's are not thick like you're acustom to. More likely to get a BF. Sails are like roaches once you learn the kite fishing thing.

I assume you mean Black Fin when you say BF... I don't see any other Tuna being a regular catch out of Palm Beach County.

I guess if you are from NJ, you may be used to running 90 miles to catch Tuna, and if you are willing to do that you can get into some better Tuna fishing (Bahamas).

No matter where you keep (or launch) your boat in Boynton, you can be out the inlet with your lines in the water in 15 minutes.

I guess everyone forgot to tell him that our YF is called SWORDFISH!!!!!!!! you can go out of boynton inlet and be on some swords in 10 miles or less........ out of the inlet in half a mile from the beach you are in 140' of water and you can catch mutton snappers and groupers for dinner. very good fishing there. for your tackle store you can go to:

Plenty of Yellowfins in the Bahamas in the Spring. The only differance is after you run 60 miles there is a Bar and a pool.

I fish up there in the summer (Long Island) and down here in the winter. They are two differant fisheries but both are awesome once you tune in. Send me a pm when you show and we can help dial you in.

If you bring your big CC down here read up on boat thefts and the precautions to take. Your rig is right in the "most wanted" category by our local lowlifes... Other than that you couldn't be in a better area for the offshore scene. You'll be closer to the Keys than if you were in Stuart, and a lot closer to Stuart than most of us living in the Ft. Laud to Miami area... To help get dialed in join one of the great local fishing clubs and fish with as many of the members as you can.

wow guys awesome Info. I will be in contact with a few of you. The boat theft thing is a bit of a concern. 289 intrepid, so that could be on their menu! I would be sure to keep her in a (hopefully) secure area. Going to be spending a lot of time "tuning in" thanks again!!
