Fishing in Indian River

If you’re looking to experience some of the best inshore and backcountry angling action on the planet, hop aboard an Indian River fishing charter. A whole variety of world-famous species rule over this fishery, which is known as the lagoon fishing capital of the world. Come cast your line in these plentiful waters!
 
Lined with mangroves, grass flats, and underwater structure, the Indian River is the perfect habitat for some of the world’s most sought-after game fish, including hard-fighting Snook, the Tarpon, Spotted Seatrout, Flounder, and even Shark varieties. You can target popular “Bull Redfish” in the river’s northernmost parts – record-breaking varieties have been hooked here before, so bring plenty of fighting spirit!
 
Indian River fishing trips run anywhere from 4–8 hours. Newer anglers and families looking to soak up the Floridian sun will find that even a shorter trip provides plenty of angling action. A full day adventure will allow you to cover more ground and target a wider variety of fish. If you’ve always dreamed of battling Snook or “bowing down” to the “Silver King”, many captains offer species-specific trips that’ll suit you perfectly.
 
There are plenty of departure points dotted along the banks of the Indian River. Its starting point, Ponce Inlet, is the perfect location for anglers looking to explore the marshier waters for huge Redfish. Travel south along the river where Titusville, Port Canaveral, and Port Pierce boast an impressive variety of fishing charters. 
 
Whether you’re a brand new angler or a seasoned fisherman, you’ll be able to explore the Indian River your way!
 

Rules & Regulations

If you’re age 16 or above, you’ll need a valid fishing license to cast a line here. Fortunately, if you’re fishing aboard a charter, this will be covered for you. Many of the Indian River’s species have strict slot and bag limits, so casting off alongside a licensed captain will ensure you’re fishing legally.

Indian River Fishing Seasons

January

The cold weather will be warmed up by explosive topwater action with Spotted Seatrout! You can also go after Pompano, Black Drum, and Sheepshead around ports. Snook cannot be harvested.

February

Cool nights and windy days may keep tourists indoors, but not the dedicated angler! Spotted Seatrout are hot around Fort Pierce. Monster Reds can be found around mangroves and shallow flats.

March

As the sun warms the water up fish start feeding quite a bit in the shallows. Trout continues to be one of the main targets, usually found deeper grass flats. Snook can be found around piers and structures.

April

Sheepshead, Jacks, Bluefish, and Snook action continues around bridges and piers. In the shallows, Redfish and Seatrout action is still red-hot on the flats. 

May

The winds die down in May and the calm summer weather sets in. Redfish are the main targets in May, followed closely by Snook. Tarpon start appearing around St. Lucie River.

June

Snook harvesting is forbidden from June 1st until the end of August. Kingfish start moving in closer to shore in the Atlantic. Tripletail, Jack Crevalle, and Shark fisheries are red-hot in June and Tarpon are getting better.

July

Coastal action is where it’s all at in July. Tarpon, Kingfish, Blacktip Shark, Jack Crevalle, and Snook all bite well. Redfish, Seatrout, and large Tarpon can be found in inlets.

August

This is the month to go sight fishing the lagoons! You can spot Redfish, Seatrout, and Tarpon in the calm morning water of the shallows from far away. Baitfish are plentiful and the fishing is amazing, both inshore and nearshore.

September

You can harvest Snook again, starting from September 1st. A mixed bag of Ladyfish, Tarpon, and Jacks stalk the edges of grass flats. The best action happens at low light with live bait – make sure to prepare ahead of time.

October

The fall mullet run is in full swing in October and the Redfish, Seatrout, and other species bite like crazy. Fishing with live bait is a must. Night fishing for Snook is a great way to test your angling skills.

November

The mainstay of Indian River fishing in November is Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, Snook, and Black Drum. Live bait works extremely well as the fish are feeding ahead of winter.

December

Snook harvesting is closed from December 15th until the end of January. The weather may not cooperate but when it’s calm expect crystal-clear waters and amazing sight fishing on the flats for Redfish and Spotted Seatrout.
