Catch 22 Fishing Charters is based on the beautiful waters of the Stuart area. Join the team in their adventure on the Indian and St. Lucie Rivers and you will have a memorable day that will make you fall in love with fishing once and for all. And, most importantly, will get your hands full of that dream fish!

Join Captain Bob aboard his “Catch 22”, brand new custom built 25-foot boat. It comes powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine and is equipped with top-notch navigational electronics, including a GPS and a fish finder. The vessel is wheelchair accessible, has its own anchoring system, a live bait tank, and an ice-box. That spacious vessel can comfortably accommodate up to six anglers on board.

Regardless of your expertise, the Captain will make you feel like home. During a trip of your choosing, you will be heading to check what is biting on the Indian and St. Lucie Rivers. Using light tackle or spinning fishing techniques, you will be going for Snook, Trout, Flounder, Redfish, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Pompano, Spanish Mackerel, Permit, and many more. Catch 22 Fishing Charters offers diverse packages to choose from. From half-day trips to full day ones, each day out on the water will be eventful and fun. What is more, the crew also offers night trips for up to 3 anglers.

The price of your trip will include rods, Penn reels, tackle, fishing licenses, live bait, and lures. Your catch will be cleaned and filleted for you to take home. You may want to take your own food and drinks with you.

After a day out with Catch 22 Fishing Charters you will make the Stuart area your favorite fishing ground!

Summertime on the Treasure Coast
Summertime on the Treasure Coast
June 16, 2024
The snook bite gets better and better in the summer as they head each year to the inlet and along the beaches for their annual spawn. Snook season reopens September 1st with the same regulations ( 28-32" slot, 1 per person). While livebaiting for snook, expect to see jack crevelles, tarpon, Goliath grouper and cubera snapper also chewing. Some really nice tripletail so far this year but the normally seen sheepshead and black drum has been slow. Outside with calm seas a few miles offshore while livebaiting look for kingfish, mahi, sailfish, barracuda, bonita. On these trips I require calm seas of 2 foot or less and available on 3/4 and full day trips.
