Captain Charlie Jones Fishing

Captain Charlie Jones Fishing charters have a goal to put you on fish and provide you with a lifetime of memories. They do it by taking you to the best and most fish-populated areas of the Indian River, the Vero Beach, and the surrounding inlets. The river is part of the Indian River Lagoon system that fish species like Redfish, Snook, and Jack Crevalle call home.

You will fish with Captain Charlie Jones who has over 45 years of experience fishing all over Florida, and is passionate about fishing for saltwater fish. He retired a decade ago and moved to Fort Pierce to set up a business he longed for his whole life. And he loves every minute of it!

He will take out on board his comfortable Triton 240 LTS Bay boat. The boat includes top notch fishing tackle, latest electronics, a wireless trolling motor, and a power pole. The built-in ice chest and two large live wells for live bait and release well, are all available on board too.

Captain Charlie Jones Fishing will take you fishing in the waters around Fort Pierce, Florida, including the Indian River and the Vero Beach. Your targeted species will include Redfish, Snook, Speckled Seatrout, Tarpon, and other fish from warm tropical waters.

Specializing in light tackle fishing using both live baits and artificial lures, he is comfortable with both experienced and novice fishermen whom he gives lots of personal attention. Captain Charlie will make sure you have a great day on the water. All ages are welcome.
