Fishing in Jensen Beach

When it comes to finding a fishing charter in Jensen Beach, there’s no lack of variety. Anglers can catch just about anything in the St. Lucie River, Indian River Lagoon, and Atlantic Ocean. No matter the time of year, there’s always something biting on the Treasure Coast!

The St. Lucie River and Indian River Lagoon are home to a healthy supply of Snook, Redfish, and Spotted Sea Trout year-round. Come spring, you won’t want to miss out on the opportunity to go after the mighty Silver King – Tarpon! If deeper waters call, the Atlantic Ocean and wicked Gulf Stream are just as easy to access. Your targets size up considerably and there’s plenty of opportunity to hook Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, and Snapper.

The variety of trips on offer in Jensen Beach can suit any schedule. The inshore waterways are easy to reach and you’ll have your lines wet in no time. Trips here are a great choice if you’ve only got a few hours to spare. You can even get some solid offshore action in on a half day trip, thanks to the nearby Gulf Stream. The action really gets going about 30 miles out, so if it’s big Sailfish you’re after, opt for a full day trip.

Most captains launch out of the Jensen Beach boat ramp, where they can easily access both the open ocean and inshore waters. You can also head out of Stuart, another fishing hotspot under 10 miles away!
 

Rules & Regulations

If you’re charter fishing, the captain’s license covers everyone on board. If you’re fishing from the beach or pier, you’ll need to buy a license online or from a local tackle shop. Some fish like Tarpon and Sailfish are strictly limited to catch and release and it’s worth checking size and bag limits before heading out.

Jensen Beach Fishing Seasons

Redfish and Spotted Seatrout reign supreme at the beginning of the year, so bust out the light tackle gear! You can also head offshore for Wahoo and Sailfish.

There’s plenty of Cobia, Kingfish, and Amberjack to hook in reefs. Head offshore for Sailfish, weather permitting. 

There’s great fishing across the board. Stay inshore for Snook, head to the reefs for Mangrove Snapper, and into the rich blue for Mahi Mahi.

The reefs are the place to be come early spring. Grouper season is officially open and there’s plenty of fish to hook. Offshore, it’s prime time for Mahi Mahi and Kingfish.

This is the time to go after Florida’s most famous fish – Tarpon! Pelagic fish start to come through as well and it’s a great time to troll the Gulf Stream for Mahi Mahi and Sailfish.

The weather heats up and the waters do too! Whether you’re inshore or offshore there’s plenty of fish to hook from Tarpon to Sailfish.

It’s all about Snook in big numbers right now. The inshore fishing is super hot but you can still hook Sailfish and Snapper offshore.

If you haven’t checked out the Gulf Stream yet, now is the time. Yellowfin Tuna is at its peak and there’s still enough Mahi Mahi and Sailfish to go around.

Snook season heats up again and there’s plenty of inshore fish to hook including tons of Redfish around the docks and mangroves. Offshore, you’ve still got a shot at Mahi Mahi and Tuna.

As we move into fall, look for Snook, Redfish, and Jacks inshore. If you came for Sailfish and Wahoo, this is peak season and you don’t want to miss heading into deep waters.

Fun fact: Jensen Beach used to be the pineapple capital of the world! Check out the Annual Pineapple Festival happening now. Sailfish season is also in full swing so this a great time to take that full day trip. 

Get ready for that hot winter bite! Offshore, Cobia is fired up and there’s plenty of Sharks too. Inshore, it’s all about Sheepshead and Pompano. The Sailfish bite picks up come the end of the month.
