Half & Full Day Charters     

 

     Excellent year-round fishing awaits you around Fort Pierce! Trout, snook, redfish, snapper, grouper, sheepshead, black drum, flounder, pompano, tarpon, spanish mackerel, jacks, ladyfish, bluefish, and sharks may all be caught in the calm, protected waters inland of the areas beaches. In the summer boats can venture out to the beaches where they may catch cobia, kingfish, giant snook, tarpon, barracuda, and large sharks. You really never know what you're going to hook next, but there's always something fun to catch and good to eat.

 

     It's important to leave at first light during warmer months to allow for calmer, cooler weather and more productive fishing and best to let the sun rise a little during the winter to warm things up for the fish, as well as us. Whatever your needs may be, I'll be happy to discuss your options with you and work around your schedule as much as possible.

 

Night Fishing Charters

 

     I offer night fishing charters that generally target snook, snapper, or redfish but may include large trout, gag grouper, jewfish, and tarpon. All fishing is done around the Fort Pierce inlet and bridges, docks, and seawalls where artficial lighting helps illuminate the area and create shadow lines for fish to use to ambush bait. This is primarily a live bait charter using mullet, pinfish, greenies and shrimp on heavier 30-50lb spinning tackle. In order to ease the challenge of fighting large fish at night, I can only take up to two people. These charters are generally planned around the dominant night tide and run about 4-5 hours. If you want the best shot at catching something really big, this charter may be for you! Call to discuss booking and get the most up-to-date info on what we're catching.
