Boat Ramps In West Palm Beach

Recommended Posts

I recently just purchased a boat and trailer nothing special it's a 15' tracker jon boat and wanted to know where you guys like to fish in west palm beach but mainly any where I'm south Florida I've already fished okeechobee and 20 mile bend. I want a mix of electric only and other lakes. Not asking to steal any spots here just wanna know what bodies of water you guys like.

Loxahatchee, lake ida, osborne, c canals.there are hundreds of little canals and lakes to get a 15' tin into to list. They light enough to move without a ramp, and with 4x4 if available you should be able to yank that thing in and out of about anything lol

If you search on line, there is a list of ramps in your area maintained by South Florida Water Management. Lots of info on line.

Yup, I use to  do the same. SoFlo is a mecca for lil boats that don't need a boat ramp.

Zach, the canal system that runs along the turnpike from Glades road north is really good, if can find a place to slide your boat in (no ramps). If you want to stick to boat ramps, I would hit up lake Osborne/lake Ida water system. There a plenty of ramps through out the whole system. It actually holds some decent size bass as well as different exotic fish. I've caught a 10 lb clown fish there one time (pretty cool looking). I believe Peacock bass as making a comeback  to there.

One more thing, If you haven't already I would recommend joining a fishing club in your area. That way you can gain some experience and become familiar with the area from people who already know the area well. Most have monthly tournaments to.
