Chasing Tides Fishing Charters: 22'

Round Island Riverside Park
Vero Beach FL, United States

Chasing Tides Fishing Charters invites you to fish the beautiful Indian River Lagoon with Captain Ricky Gonzalez. If having a good time on the water catching trophy inshore fish sounds like something you want to do, then book a trip and ho onboard!

Captain Ricky has almost three decades worth of local knowledge. He has mastered the waters of the Indian River Lagoon system and the surrounding areas and knows where the fish reside. Are Snook, Trout, Redfish or Tarpon sound like something you’re after? Or maybe you want to add Jack Crevalle, Bluefish, Mangrove Snapper, Ladyfish, and Bonnethead Shark to the list? You have found the right captain!

Enjoy the adventure aboard a 22’ Nautic Star 2200 Sport boat. It can comfortably take up to four anglers and performs well in shallow waters. Its single 150 HP Suzuki engine will power you to the best grounds and the navigational electronics will be a big time saver when searching for fish. The vessel is fitted with a Minn-Kota wireless trolling motor for a quiet ride, an ice box to keep the catch fresh, and a live well loaded with bait.

Chasing Tides Fishing Charters uses only top-quality products like Shimano, Quantum, Penn, Star Rods, St. Croix, Mirroluers, Berkley lures, and Smith Optics. With such an impressive equipment, your leave no chance to the fish. All you have to do is choose whichever trip suits you best!

You will be provided with gear, tackle, bait, lures, and license. The captain will offer drinks, so feel free to bring your favorite food.

Born and raised in Florida, fishing the east coast from Titusville to port St Lucie, mainly around the Indian River County area. I have been fishing since I was 8 years old. Using both a 17 ft flats skiff and 22 ft center console, along with top-notch tackle, I will make sure you have the tools to catch that fish of a lifetime!
