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!

Stuart Fishing Seasons

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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 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!

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.

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.

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. 

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. 

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.
