Fishing in Stuart

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.

Stuart Fishing Seasons

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 Black and First Mate Garrett busted their tails all day to make a long COVID delayed bucket list fishing trip a success! We got the Sailfish I had hoped for and caught a 25 lb Cobia that I am looking forward to enjoying tomorrow while we watch the Super Bowl. I would highly recommend EBtide and would definitely come back for another offshore trip. Thanks again to Capt. Black and Garrett, you were awesome!

Cold front came in so it was hard to find fish. Jeremy did his best to find fish. Would check fishing sites to see if fish are hitting before next trip. Overall he is a good guy and does his best to get you on the fish 🐠.

I’ve chartered many boats around the US, freshwater and Salt, inshore, offshore, river, etc., this was the hardest working crew I’ve ever had and they made sure we got on some fish despite the weather report being inaccurate and hitting rougher seas than expected. There was always lines in the water no matter if were deep dropping, trolling or jigging. 10/10 on crew personalities as well.

Going fishing doesn’t mean a guaranteed catch. Anyone can be a captain/mate when the bite is everywhere. We had a beautiful day, conditions were right, bite was slow. Dennis and Charles made sure my son and I had a wonderful time, and got our input on what to do next. We had a meat in the cooler early so we tried to sport fish… will definitely book with these guys again

Captain Allan was awesome! He and first mate Garrett were very aware of the fish and conditions of the sea! They were prepared with bait and lines ready to go for the most optimal catches!

The boat was beautiful, Captain Kyle had arranged for the bait boat to meet us on the way out. While the fishing was slow on this day we did keep 2 of the 4 we caught. Captain Kyle worked to keep us on fish as much as he could. Our 1st Mate Alex was Phenomenal and worked his butt off keeping bait on the line. We would highly recommend these guys. Thank you, Captain Kyle and 1st Mate Alex for an excellent time.

Awesome day on the water with Captain Steve. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable, he's a great guy to spend your day fishing with. You truly feel like you are out with a good friend. This trip marked the last day of my 5 day fishing trip and it was by far, the highlight of the entire week. If you are looking for a memorable day on the water, look no further than Captain Steve. I'll be back for sure!
