Palm Beach County is one of the fishing capitals of the world and for good reason. The Gulf Stream, a warm and swift Atlantic Ocean current that originates in the Gulf of Mexico, is closest to land near Palm Beach and Jupiter Inlet, providing abundant amounts of fish about a ¼ mile to 3 miles offshore.

If you don’t have a boat of your own, we have compiled this list of friendly local fishing charters for your convenience.

Charter services and accommodations vary, so hopefully, this guide helps narrow down your choice. Most charter trips include everything you need to fish except for optional live bait, food, drinks, and gratuities. A few charters even include live bait and bottled water!

Be sure to tip your captain and crew if you have a

The iconic Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum is prepping for new projects on the property. The new projects are aimed to help preserve the land from every changing environment and to help preserve Jupiter’s history.

The Lighthouse is surrounded by more than 120 acres of native habitat and the Lighthouse and Museum is always finding ways to enhance and improve the land and surroundings.

The historic lighthouse was constructed in 1860 and was used to save ships from wrecking in the reefs offshore. The site has been used and eventually included a U.S. Weather Bureau Station, a Navy radio station during WWII, and a U.S. Air Force missile tracking station. The Lighthouse today still operates as a navigation aid for those on the water.

In the 1970’s, the

Fishing is a favored pastime for Florida residents and visitors, but while just about every catch is fun to reel in, not every catch is a keeper. We’re about a month out from snook season, but until then it is still legal to catch-and-release these sly silverfish. It’s important to follow rules and regulations of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) not only to avoid penalties but also to respect the beautiful Florida marine environment we all love so we can enjoy it for years to come. In order to help ensure fish populations remain sustainable for future generations, educate yourself before fishing, and understand proper handling techniques so your catch-and-release provides for the best chance of fish survival.

This Thursday, the Loggerhead Marinelife Center is planning on releasing another healthy sea turtle back into the ocean. The center is planning to release James IV on Thursday morning at 10:30 am with pre-release procedures beginning at 10 am.

The event will start at the Loggerhead Marinelife Center at 10 am where the center will go over how they found the turtle and its recovery process before being released.

James IV was brought to the center in early April and is a juvenile loggerhead sea turtle. The sea turtle patient was hooked by a recreational fisherman at the Juno Beach Pier. While in the hands of the sea turtle research and rehabilitation center, the sea turtle received antibiotics and was cleared to be released last week.

Stuart was dubbed the "Sailfish Capital of the World" in 1938 by Miami Herald columnist, Enrnie Lyons, who visited the city and saw its vicinity to world-class sport fishing. Lyons was on a charter fleet offshore of the St. Lucie Inlet, where that week approximately 1,000 sailfish were caught and released by skilled anglers. Lyons returned to Miami to tell the world about the exceptional game fishing Stuart has to offer.

Since then, the sailfish has become part of the history of Stuart, as you can see from statues, fountains (pictured above) and business names in the area. Sailfish are still always a big catch just a few miles offshore in 80-160 feet of water and are caught with trolled dead baits. 

What's lesser known about this area of the
