Join Crossroads Charter Fishing in Stuart for a memorable fishing adventure in southeast Florida. Captain Chris Murray has been fishing these waters for over 25 years, since he was a high school student, so you will surely get an authentic local experience.

His 22’ Ranger bay boat can comfortably accommodate up to 4 anglers. It’s powered by a Mercury V6 four-stroke 200 HP motor with a maximum cruising speed of 40 knots. The boat is equipped with the latest electronics to improve your chances of catching some prized fish!

Depending on the experience you would like to have, you can choose from a variety of trips Capt. Chris has to offer. You can head nearshore and try your luck with Cobia, Permit, and Kingfish. If the weather permits it, and the water is calm, you can even go a little further and try reeling in some Sailfish.

If you wish to have a more relaxing time, there’s an evening trip. You’ll be fishing around the local bridges. Soak in some great sunset views while targeting Snook, Tarpon, Redfish, and Trout. Capt. Chris’ easygoing personality keeps the mood on his boat light-hearted and informative.

You’ll use Shimano and Penn reels and rods provided by your captain, as well as live bait and lures. If you want to go fly fishing, note that fly fishing gear isn’t provided. You can bring your own, but be aware that 2 people can fly fish at once.

Capt. Chris really enjoys spending time with kids, so this can be a great family adventure. Kids of all ages are welcome aboard, and their safety is guaranteed by the captain. You are free to bring some food and drinks, and make sure to bring some sun protection as well.

Pack your family and come aboard Crossroads Charter Fishing for an experience you won’t forget!
