St Lucie Flats Fishing

800 Indian River Drive
Fort Pierce FL, United States

St Lucie Flats Fishing is based out of Fort Pierce, Florida, where Captain Adam White runs charter trips on the Indian River Lagoon and in the nearshore areas accessible through the Fort Pierce inlet. 

Capt. Adam’s 22 foot Pathfinder is the perfect boat for the wide range of fishing options in the area. Not only can it float in a foot of water, it is also capable of handling much rougher waters out to sea. Equipped with Garmin electronics, a Power Pole Shallow water anchor, Minn Kota trolling motor and a VHF radio, it won’t let you down as you chase Redfish through the back bays or target Tarpon on the reefs close to shore.

Inshore trips with St Lucie Flats Fishing will involve exploring the mangrove islands, docks and spoil bars. Depending on your level of experience and location, you will be fishing with a variety of live and cut bait, as well as artificial lures if you like more of a challenge. Using 8-15lb spinning tackle, you will be targeting fish such as Sheepshead, Black Drum, Redfish, Trout, Snook, Snapper among others. If you decide to fish the inlet and nearshore areas, however, you will be using live bait and artificial lures with 15-30lb spinning tackle to target species such as larger Snook, Redfish, False Albacore, Tarpon and Jack Crevalle.

Not only does the Treasure Coast section of the Indian River offer fantastic fishing, it also hosts an array of stunning wildlife. Manatees, Dolphins and several species of shorebirds can be encountered on a daily basis around the mangroves. Join Capt. Adam to experience all this and more. Anglers of any age and experience are welcome on board: whatever you’re hoping to get out of your Fort Pierce fishing trip, Capt. Adam will do all he can to provide it for you.

Capt. Adam White has been fishing since he was seven years old, and has been fishing Fort Pierce for the last 12 years. He can't get enough of being on the water and 5 years ago decided the best way of sharing this passion with those around him was to start his own charter business. He loves to fish the inshore areas of Fort Pierce as well as the reefs and offshore waters nearby.

The trip was a little disappointing as the captain did not get enough of fresh bait, only about 3 dozen.  We spent 2 hours of my 6 hour fishing trip going up and down the coast looking for shiners for bait, cause we could not get any more bait,  and it was a 2 hours wasted of our fishing time.  If we had about 100 baits, we could have been pulling them in all morning and probably caught more.  We only caught 8 total, but not complaining about the numbers so much.  The Captain or this Fishing Booker should note to the customer if they want to buy more bait up front, to give you the option.  And to let the customer know how much bait is complimentary with the quidding fee and recommend how much more bait you should buy.

Thanks Darrin!  I enjoyed having you and Ross out on Saturday.

Just want to clarify a couple of things.  A five hour half day nearshore trip is what was booked.  I put in the extra hour trying to put a few more fish in your hands.  I am sorry that I didn’t communicate better about how I handle live bait for my trips. I purchased 50 live baits from the bait boat for $50 which is the max I include in my pricing for a two person trip.
