Run by Capt. Paul Fafeita, Just Bummin It Charters offers a fun and family-friendly fishing service in the area around Vero Beach, Florida. Fishing usually takes place in the Indian River Lagoon, the most biodiverse lagoon ecosystem in the Northern Hemisphere. Home to over 3,000 species of plants and animals including Brown Pelicans, Great Blue Herons, Great Egrets, and Manatees. This is also an incredibly productive area for inshore saltwater fishing.

Captain Paul’s 22’ Ranger Bay Boat is built specifically for inshore and nearshore fishing.

Depending on tides and season this could include the Indian River Slam of Redfish, Snook, and Trout, as well as several varieties of Snapper, Sheepshead, small Bonnethead Sharks, Black Drum, Spanish Mackerel, Ladyfish, Barracuda, and Tarpon.
