Top Fishing Charters 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.

January

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.

February

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

March

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.

April

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.

May

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.

June

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.

July

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.

August

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.

September

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.

October

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.

November

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. 

December

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.

Capt Jesse Berry was spot on providing us with the most exceptional fishing experience of a lifetime. Once we arrived at our destination it was minutes before our frenzy of fishing exploded. Mahi-mahi Tuna Cobia and Sailfish were the highlights of the day. Our excitement was matched by Captain Berry in every aspect and his patience was appreciated. Highly recommend and would do it again!! Thank you again

Both Captain Kevin and his first mate Vern did a great job! Plenty of fresh bait. Boat was roomy for four (along with Kevin and Vern). Fishing was good, and it was a very good weather day. My suggestion to Kevin is to spend some time sprucing up the interior of the boat. Engines are in great shape, and Kevin handles the boat well. I will go back.

The whole experience was good. Captain Bob reached out before the trip to confirming everything. He was right on time picking us up at the dock. Watched a great sunrise and went drifting for snook. We then spent the second half of the trip fishing for different species. My wife, who is a beginner had a great time. Captain Bob took care of everything for her. We also learned about the history of the area. All in all a great trip.

We had a great time fishing with Captain Kovach. He and his first mate were very helpful and knowledgeable. They took our requests as to what we wanted to catch and put us on them. We caught a couple mahi and snapper. Towards the end of the day the fish were starting to get more active and they let us stay out until we weren't catching anymore (well beyond our 8hrs). Thanks Captain for the adventurous day on the water, sorry for the friend that was chumming the water most of the day.

We had a wonderful fishing trip with Capt. Bob on Catch 22. My 10 year old son landed a huge snook over forty inches, something he’s going to remember the rest of his life. Capt. Bob was great and we’ll be repeat customers. Already looking forward to it!

By choosing the inshore trip we knew our odds and chances would be limited. Chris and first mate Luke worked hard the entire trip to put us on a catch. We ended up with one very nice Tripletail a few Bonefish which I understand are not very common in these waters, some small Snapper and even a Puffer fish. A good time was had by all. The only unfavorable part of the charter was having to ration our bait about half way into the trip.

I bought this trip for my husband for our anniversary! I chose Captain Kovach for his high ratings... and he did not disappoint. He made himself available for questions leading up to the trip... and more importantly, got us on the fish! We even battled a shark or 2! Don't worry if you've never fished before (like me) because he makes it easy for the newbie fisherman. By the end of the adventure I felt like a pro! We will definitely be planning more charters with Captain Kovach!

Amazing experience, really nice Captain brief you on everything you need to know. If you have any request or target fish just let him know he will do his best to help you. Works very fast and nice boat, small but well equipped. He has some nice spot that he’ll do his best to help you get fish. Overall, once you talk to him you’ll know it gona be a fun trip. Definitely will come back to him again.

Kevin was very attentive to all people fishing. Real nice time for the kids (ages20-24). Kept everyone fishing and fully baited at all times. Would recommend to all novice and beginner fishermen. We stayed in the fish probably 75% of the time. Everyone had a great time! Thanks
