According to customer reviews, Catch of the Day, DP Expeditions, and Harrison’s Chew Charters – “Dirty 30” are some of the most popular fishing charters in Stuart, Florida. Full list of top fishing charters in Stuart.

Catch of the Day and Harrison’s Chew Charters – “Dirty 30” received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Stuart.

The most popular fish species you can target are Snook, Dolphin (Mahi Mahi), and King Mackerel (Kingfish). Top fishing techniques include light tackle, spinning, and trolling. Nearshore fishing, reef fishing, and offshore fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

Located along Florida’s Treasure Coast, this city is known for the riches it holds both on land and beneath its inshore, nearshore, and offshore waters. Wander through the historic downtown, stroll through the butterfly gardens, and then hop aboard one of the many fishing charters in Stuart, FL for an angling adventure you won’t forget!
 
Known as the “Sailfish Capital of the World,” Stuart’s big game fishing opportunities are plentiful. With the Gulf Stream just 10 miles from shore, you’ll come across Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, or Sailfish in just a four- or five-hour trip. Head past the stream on an eight-hour adventure, and you’ll be casting your line for Tuna and Marlin, too. Some captains even offer 10–12 hour trips, which will take you further offshore for bigger varieties like Swordfish. 
 
If the main goal of your trip is to hook some delicious dinner, Stuart’s nearshore waters are home to a variety of reefs. Located 2–8 miles from shore, you’ll come face-to-gills with the likes of Snapper, Grouper, Cobia, King Mackerel, and Amberjack. A four hour trip is enough time for newbies and families to explore the reefs, whereas hardened anglers can opt for a longer trip to cover more ground.
 
Stuart is also an inshore fisherman’s paradise. With access to the St. Lucie River and the Indian River Lagoon, you’ll have your line in the water within minutes, meaning that even a four hour trip yields plentiful results. These waters are rich with popular Floridian fish, including Snook, Redfish, Speckled Trout, Permit, Flounder, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Bonefish, and Tarpon. A full day trip will give you the option of targeting ‘em all!
 

Rules & Regulations

Hop aboard a Stuart fishing charter, and your licence will be covered. Some of Stuart’s species are subject to strict regulations, and your captain will make sure you’re fishing within the law.

January

Start the year off right with some light tackle action! Winter offers some of the best fishing for Speckled Trout and Redfish inshore. If the weather allows, you might reel in a Wahoo or Sailfish just 10 miles from shore.

February

Many Grouper species are off limits at this time of year, but you can still enjoy catching Cobia, Kingfish, and Amberjack near the reefs. If you head offshore, this is a great time to catch Sailfish and Blackfin Tuna.

March

The fishing inshore continues to look promising, while the action offshore is just heating up. Weather permitting, this could be a great time to go after Mahi Mahi, Yellowfin Tuna, and Billfish.

April

This time of year is usually when the season for Grouper re-opens, turning nearshore reefs into a real hot spot for charter boats. Mahi Mahi and Kingfish are both at their peak. 

May

May is a great time to be on the water in Stuart, whether you’re tackling Tarpon inshore or trolling the Gulf Stream for Tuna, Wahoo, Marlin, and Mahi Mahi. Keep an eye out for upcoming fishing tournaments.

June

Everywhere you look, there’s bound to be good fishing. This is the perfect time to head offshore for Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Marlin, Tuna, Swordfish, and more. The reefs and inshore waterways are just as promising.

July

July is a great time for some hard fighting action inshore, with Tarpon, Snook, and other species at their peak. Or sign up for the Stuart Sailfish Club’s Fishing Classic and bring home some bragging rights!

August

If you didn’t make it to the Gulf Stream yet, now is the time. Yellowfin Tuna and Kingfish are still at their peak, while your chances of landing a Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, or Swordfish are still strong.

September

If you’re fishing inshore, this is an ideal time to target Redfish, who will be emerging in greater numbers. Offshore you’re still likely to catch Marlin, Swordfish, Tuna, Barracuda, and Mahi Mahi.

October

With the peak season for Sailfish and Wahoo picking up, there are plenty more tournaments to come, including the Lady Angler Tournament. Meanwhile, inshore fishing is as good as ever. 

November

Sailfish season is in full swing, and it’s not a bad time to fish for Wahoo or Swordfish, either. The reefs are still swarming with Snapper, Grouper, Amberjack, and more. 

December

Weather permitting, this is a great time to head offshore. Sailfish, Blackfin Tuna, Wahoo, Kingfish, and Barracuda are all enjoying their peak season. Keep an eye out for the light tackle Sailfish Tournament.

The great thing is there are plenty of fish and because of the river system as well as the open seas you can fish most every day whatever the weather.

Captain Trent was great. Worked his tail off to get us fish. Not so much the first mate John. When we were out catching bait fish Trent caught 99% of the fish. Just seemed like John wasn’t into it. Spent the first hour of the trip catching bait fish. If John worked like Trent, might have only spent 30 minutes. Overall, had a good time. Next time we might go for the full day.

My dad And I booked a full day trip with captain Trent and mate john. We were amazed at Trent and John's. Hard work and hustle from the minute we got their until we ended at dock. They put us on a variety of fish which is exactly what we asked for. We enjoyed it so much we booked another full day trip 2 days later and were on the fish from the beginning. They also put us on a nice sailfish to finish the day.

My wife and I had an excellent 4hr nearshore trip with Captain D'Angelo. He was very personable, patient and we had steady action the whole trip. We have been on some "not so great" charters in the past but Captain D'Angelo was great and we would highly recommend.

Fish were not biting at all. Captain Neff knew where to find them though. We ended up catching Mahi mahi, Barracuda, and we had 3 near misses on some giants that we couldn't get into the boat. Great time!!!!!

What a time!!! My son and I pulled into the dock at 0700 and Captain Jeremy was already in the water getting bait. Captain Jeremy worked hard and put us on the fish. This captain loves what he does and it showed. His hospitality is 5 star. He gave us fishing stories and memories that will last a life time. We will definitely be back and recommend anyone looking for a great fishing trip look up Captain Jeremy.

We had a great time with Captain Joe, he's very knowledgeable and just wants you to have a great time and enjoy the experience. It was the best experience I've had fishing yet from battling kingfish, snapper and learning about these Goliath groupers. Will go again and be recommending him to anyone I know.

Bump trolled for most of the day boated 2 sails and 2 Kings. One of the Kings was 36 pounds. Action was steady for the first half of the trip with bonito filling the time between quality fish. Missed a few in the second half of the day, including a Cobia that spit the bait just as it was at the side of boat. Captain Trent and mate worked hard all day. No quit! Everyone enjoyed their company and conversation. Good people!

Hugo was awesome! Hooked our first fish 20 seconds after the bait hot the water. a tarpon almost 6ft 160-170 lbs. That fish fought us for almost 2 hours and dragged us a mile and a half off shore. We were exhausted from that one so we went looking for snook in the river and found a good size ladyfish. Great guy...knows more about fishing than anyone that i've ever met.
