Native Fishing Charters

Stuart is doubly blessed with a fabulous location – Florida has some of the finest bluewater fishing around and the Indian River Lagoon has some of the best inshore fishing. Smack-dab in the middle of all this is Native Fishing Charters – they’ll show you just how good the action can get!

Captain Steven Bologna invites you to join him on board his 25’ Sea Pro. She’s fully equipped for serious fishing with a full complement of navigational and fishfinding electronics. The engine is a 200 HP Suzuki outboard that allows the boat to reach a maximum speed of 42 knots. You can bring 3 of your fishing buddies with you on this fishing excursion.

You can target a wide range of species in the local waters. The Indian River Lagoon and St. Lucie River are home to excellent Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, and Tarpon action. If you’re a fan of blue waters you can head out into the Atlantic Ocean. Cobia, Mahi Mahi, Groupers, and many other species lurk offshore. There’s something for every angler!

Capt. Steven will provide you with all the necessary equipment for this fishing outing, except for fly rods. If you’re a fly fishing fanatic you should bring your own tackle. The gear provided is made by Star Rods and Daiwa, so you won’t lose a fish due to tackle failure.

Kids aged 6 and up are more than welcome on board with Capt. Steven, he’ll provide life jackets in all sizes. Remember to pack a cooler in your trunk, fish cleaning and filleting services are included in the price.

Whether you’re looking to surprise your buddies with a trip or want to introduce your kids to the world of angling going out with Native Fishing Charters is the right move! Book a trip today and start making your new favorite fishing memories.
