Welcome to our Stuart, FL Fishing Home Page
This area is known as the “Sailfish Capital of the World.” Anglers target more than just sailfish here though. There are many fishing charters that operate out of Stuart, Florida and they target fish inshore and offshore. Inshore, the Indian River Lagoon provides great fishing for redfish, sea trout, snook, tarpon and many other species. Offshore, you can target billfish, sailfish, grouper, snapper and more.
The Stuart area has some excellent inshore fishing for a variety of fish. The St. Lucie Inlet and Fort Pierce Inlet offer excellent fishing for snook, but so many other species of fish come through these inlets on a daily basis. The tidal changes are some great times to fish the inlets. With the Indian River and the St. Lucie River, anglers have so much water to fish. You can fish the docks, bridges, channels and flats for tarpon, redfish, sea trout, ladyfish, sheepshead, pompano, sharks, bluefish, black drum, jack crevalle and more.
Some anglers do run along the beaches to fish the nearshore waters in this area. Anglers usually target kingfish, cobia, sharks, Spanish Mackerel and tarpon nearshore, but there are several other species of fish that can be caught. The time of year will dictate what fish will be more prevalent in the nearshore waters.
