Default Intracoastal fishing in south Florida

I have a 23'Mako and I'm not sure on taking it past the inlet quite yet. So while I'm getting used to the boat and what seas it might be able to take, I would still like to fish.
What do you suggest for intracoastal fishing in Palm Beach county? Where, what to fish for, what to use, trolling or anchored?
Thanks for your help.

Keywanee,

There has been some excellent dolphin fishing off Boynton Beach but I must tell you that if you are not used to Boynton Inlet stay inside until you study that inlet closely.

I have seen many Mako 23's and smaller boats than that go out there but boy is that a nasty one.

Sure there are days where you can slide out of there OK but keep an eye on the wind direction and tide.......a good easterly breeze and a dropping tides makes for a bad day. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]

Have fun and good luck..........Booby

When its too rough to go offshore, when you are by yourshelf, try the intercoastal. Many seawalls, docks, creeks, sandbars and magroves hold fish. Trout, snook, and big jacks prowel the docks in Palm Beach areas. Look for other boats close to the inlet, they fish the tides for pompano, spanish mackeral and flounder. Give me a shout, come up to Stuart, and I can show you some techniques. Fish are starting to turn on, good luck. Rocky [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif[/img]

That's just about the worst inlet in Fl. I fished it for 11+ yrs. I fised boats from 14-37' out of there and it gets bad there. But if you want some thing fun to do get on of those 14' Doniz's!!! That is FUN!! Not the smartest thing but it is fun. Everyone in here says pick your days, well since the ride was short I went OUT in up to 8' and would come back in 15' waves on bad days. They were not a fun ride BUT I did catch some of my best fish doing that. I don't advise anyone else to try it (I have had some big waves BREAK on the boat, kill the motor, stuff the bow, etc.)

Remember now curiosity killed the Cobia................

rocky, thanks for the invite.
i might take you up on it sometime. but since i don't have a trailer for my boat yet, means it would be a long boat ride up there. but i'll keep it in mind.
anyway thanks all for the info.
i've heard a lot of bad things about the boynton inlet and i plan on taking a little more experienced boater with me before trying it.
thanks again.

there are a couple of artificial reefs inside around palm beach one is just east of Rybovich boat yard the other is maybe 1/2 mile north of the Blue Heron bridge fish high tide right as it starts out it small live bait seems to do the best

Kewanee, when your running the inlet, just make sure to keep your bow up. A while ago my dad was running a 22 1984 pursuit out of the inlet, took a wave over the bow, and it cracked the inch thick plexiglass windshield. Now, we have a venture 34, and taking waves over the bow is not a huge deal. You also got to make sure to that your not running the inlet while the dive boats or drift boats are going through. And, theres a big sancbar that goes out from the beach to the south, so make sure you give it a wide berth.
