Capt. Charlie’s Fish Tales Charters

Captain Charlie of Fish Tales Charters offers light tackle fishing trips on the Indian River Lagoon. Fishing out of Fort Pierce, Florida, he mainly serves the beautiful Vero Beach, Stuart and Port Saint Lucie areas. Join him to experience not only the area’s world famous inshore fishing opportunities, but also the fantastic scenery of the Indian River Lagoon with the incredibly diverse ecosystem the mangroves have to offer. Manatees, dolphins and numerous species of birds, as well as a host of desirable fish species all call this area a home, and Captain Charlie will help you get the most out of everything the area has to offer.

You will be fishing aboard Capt. Charlie’s 19 foot Key West bay boat. The vessel offers plenty of space for everyone to enjoy the day. With navigational electronics and safety gear supplied on board, all you need to bring is sunglasses, snacks, drinks, camera and a smile!

Capt. Charlie’s main target species include Redfish, Snook and Speckled Trout. You will be fishing these species with light tackle and an assortment of baits and lures. Star rods and Shimano reels are used, alongside DOA lures. Live bait can also be included if you prefer.

Charlie is a U.S.C.G. licensed and insured captain who has been guiding in the Fort Pierce area for 15 years. He welcomes all levels of angler from novice to experienced, and will take the time to improve every angler’s flats fishing skills as well as providing tips and advice about fishing the waters of the Treasure Coast.
