    I grew up in Boynton Beach and used to surf Delray and kayaked there all the time. I hardly saw anyone but tourists/inexperienced fishermen there, never saw sport fish when I snorkeled. However there is a well known wreck off the southern end of the public beach. 7 or so years ago there was a kayak rental place on the southern edge. If you took one out 1/4 mile or more and you can bottom fish. Otherwise fish shrimp in the troughs for whiting, hope for a snook on a rod with live bait. To avoid people I personally would fish the edges of the public beach. The better bets are Lake Worth Pier, Boynton Inlet, Boca Inlet or I've heard but never fished the Camino Real Bridge. Bring sabiki rigs and/or a cast net in case bait pods show up.
