Charley's Fishing Charters

Ready to go fishing in Jensen Beach? Look no further than Charley’s Fishing Charters! Captain Charley will be your guide, bringing aboard years of professional experience.

Depending on the season, you might hook into Amberjack, Cobia, Mahi Mahi, Black Grouper, Gag Grouper, Goliath Grouper, Red Grouper, King Mackerel, Mutton Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, Yellowtail Snapper, Blackfin Tuna, whatever else is biting. You’ll target your catch by spinning, popping, trolling, drifting, jigging, bottom fishing, or maybe something more specialized in this area. Capt. Charley can also have you Flounder gigging.

If you’re traveling with the family, you will be glad to know that kids are welcome aboard! Be sure to ask if child-sized life vests are available, otherwise, you should bring your own. And, you can’t go wrong with snacks so that nobody gets grumpy on an empty belly!

Your excursion begins aboard a 26’ Bluewater center console that can carry up to 6 passengers. It has outriggers, downriggers, and all the essentials. There’s a toilet on board for your convenience. You’ll find rods, reels, and tackle waiting for you, along with lures. Live bait is on offer, but be sure to ask about it so you know if you’ll be catching it yourself.

Trips are run with the help of a First Mate. Mates often work for tips and it’s customary to offer them a 10–20% tip. The charter boat covers your fishing license, just show up ready for a good time! Have in mind that you may release some fish due to regulations. Simply ask and your captain can tell you more.

Don’t forget to bring sunglasses, a hat, sunscreen (non-spray), and bottled water. If you’d like to bring other drinks, just ask. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, but you should avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles.

I’ve been around charter fishing since I was born. My father was a charter fisherman on several boats in the Manatee Pocket. I’ve been fishing these waters for more than 35 years, ever since I could walk and hold a rod.
