Fishing in Vero Beach

This small Floridian city is known for its Atlantic-facing beaches, nature trails, and plentiful waterside activities – and a whole host of angling opportunities, of course. You’ll find plenty of Vero Beach fishing charters lining the shores, ready to take you exploring. With deep sea adventures and a maze of flats, inlets, creeks, and coves on offer, it’s easy to see why Vero Beach has all types of anglers truly hooked!
 
If you’re an inshore angler, prepare to have your heart stolen by the Indian River Lagoon. This waterway is home to thousands of flora and fauna varieties, and offers up scenic angling opportunities. Snook, Redfish, and Trout thrive here, and the lagoon’s many inlets are home to Permit, Cobia, Tarpon, and Trevally. The bite is consistent throughout the year, and you’ll find captains running both half and full day trips, suitable for families and experienced fishermen alike.
 
For adrenaline lovers, the fish-filled waters of the mighty Atlantic lie in wait. With an impressive scattering of reefs and wrecks located just a few miles from shore, anglers looking for tasty table fare will be able to plumb the depths for Snapper, Grouper, and Kingfish. 
 
Head further out, and it’s a big game fish bonanza – Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Marlin and Swordfish are waiting for you. Opt for a full or extended full day adventure to make the most of this prolific fishery. Some captains even run extended or multi day trips to the Bahamas!
 

Rules & Regulations

As is the case with most Floridian fisheries, cast your line alongside an experienced Vero Beach charter captain and your license will be covered for you. Some of the area’s species are subject to strict bag and size restrictions, and your captain will be able to fill you in on all the details. 

Vero Beach Fishing Seasons

January

You can get numerous Sailfish not that far from the coast. Inshore you’ll find Flounder, Tripletail, and Cobia, while bottom fishing produces Lane Snapper.

February

Stay inshore and bring in bags of Mangrove Snapper and try to find a keeper Snook. There are also Jack Crevalle, Sheepshead, and Tripletail in the water.

March

Coming to Vero Beach now will let you avoid the summer crowds but get equally good fishing, with Mahi Mahi biting day after day, with Sailfish, Wahoo, and Blackfin Tuna foraging nearby.

April

You can enjoy a beautiful day on the water with the sun shining and Wahoo and Mahi biting regularly. Spring Break can get even better if you manage to reel in hard-hitting Sailfish.

May

May brings a mixed bag. King Mackerel are displaying their finest skills. Be ready for Sharks, get light tackle for Jack Crevalle and Snook, and stock up on live bait to entice Sailfish.

June

Sharks, summer Sails, Tarpon, and Snook all make the headlines of what the early summer brings. Vero Beach can offer a lot to both less experienced anglers and pro fishers.

July

Fishing is on fire. Find a spot and head out into the Atlantic to land Sailfish, King Mackerel, and Mutton Snapper. The spectacle gets even better when you see Blackfin Tuna and Wahoo take the bait.

August

The summer heat is still on. Head offshore and land Amberjack, Mahi, as well as King Mackerel and Mutton Snapper. Wahoo, Blackfin Tuna, Bonito, and Sharks are regular catches offshore.

September

The Labor Day bite is on fire as Redfish go up in numbers, followed by Trout and Black Drum. Tarpon are still hanging around, and if you charter a boat offshore, you can get Amberjack or Kingfish.

October

October means Redfish, Trout, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Tripletail, Ladyfish, Pompano, and Jack Crevalle, as well as Tarpon. Mangrove Snapper are here in great numbers too.

November

Spend Thanksgiving fishing for Black Drum, or have a go at Tripletail as their bite stabilizes. Pompano and Spanish Mackerel are starting their winter campaign, while you can regularly catch Sheepshead.

December

There are schools of Mangrove and Lane Snapper, as well as Grouper near the bottoms. Monster Redfish forage inshore, followed by Snook. Offshore, the Sailfish bite is epic.

Even though we were told that fishing isn't catching (with no guarantees), we caught the fish we targeted because we managed our expectations, and chartered a boat with the right captain.

I would recommend that you take more than a half-day trip, time flies out there. If I could do it again I would do a longer trip ?

It is worth doing a guided trip at the start of your time here. Captain Jake knew where the fish were likely to be and what works best to catch them. He let us know where to go during the remainder of our trip for fishing.

Captain Jeff was awesome. He had all the right gear and bait. He absolutely knows where the fish are, and knew how to get his customers to land them. We had non stop action in a day when conditions weren't that favorable. We had an A++ experience!

Cold day but Justin made it tolerable. Caught some fish and sent some back, to small, Justin was great to my sister and myself and did a great job cleaning the fish. I would go out again with Justin, only on a warmer day. Great time.

Captain Jake used his experience and local knowledge to put us on the fish during a quick morning trip. We had a lot of fun and it was interesting to learn more about the area we were fishing. We fished a number of locations and saw a lot of action. Captain Jake is very friendly and professional and knows how to make it happen. Great day on the water!

We used live bait including shrimp. I caught a 29 inch Snook, Black Drum, and Snapper. They all ended up on the grill at Riverside Cafe. It's 5 minutes from where you'll have your fish filleted. I did all the research and picked the right tour. You should do the same.

A Great day was had by all… Captain Jeff is a true professional, taking time to calmly explain fishing techniques, boat safety and etiquette to the kids. Of all the charters that I have taken this one ranks in the top five. We’ll definitely be fishing again with Captain Jeff.
