Indian River Adventures LLC

Come join Capt. Jesse Gingras for a fishing adventure in beautiful Stuart Florida. Explore the Indian River Lagoon and on its sister river, the St. Lucie River! These waters are home to a variety of species including Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, Sea Trout, Triple Tail, Sharks, Barracuda, Pompano, Jack Crevalle, a few dozen species of birds, and of course, our favorite sea cow, the Florida Manatee, just to name a few!

Here at Indian River Adventures Capt. Jesse aims to make each trip memorable. You’ll be able to experience the challenge of fly fishing and the thrill of catching on ultralight tackle or fishing with live bait for those pesky and spooky big fish. You can also try your hand at throwing soft plastics or topwater lures or venturing beyond the inlet on a calm nice day and fishing just offshore for pelagic critters!

Stick to a style you feel comfortable with or have the captain show you the ropes of something you have not done before! Fish during the beautiful Florida winter days or the calm cool evening and night time of the summer, the choice is entirely up to you!

The great thing about this beautiful estuary is that it’s not as seasonal as the states to the North. Any day of the year there is something to see and do here! Capt. Jesse has grown up here in Stuart and has been fishing the local waters all his life so he will know where to look for fish regardless of the season.

When you join Indian River Adventures, you’ll be fishing on Capt. Jesse’s 2007 Pathfinder 20’ bay boat equipped with shallow water anchors, Minn Kota trolling motor, digital camera, and a 2018 Suzuki outboard!

Jesse wants you to have a hassle-free experience with a no fish no pay and a free cancel 24 hrs prior policies. Children under 12yrs old with guardian present don’t pay the 50$ additional person fee!
