According to customer reviews, Night Tide Charters, Southern Thunder Charters – Inshore, and Southern Thunder Charters – Offshore are some of the most popular fishing charters in Sebastian Inlet. Full list of top fishing charters in Sebastian Inlet.

Night Tide Charters, Southern Thunder Charters – Inshore, and Southern Thunder Charters – Offshore all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Sebastian Inlet.

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

With the Indian and St. Sebastian Rivers to the west and the endless blue of the Atlantic to the east, stepping aboard a Sebastian Inlet fishing charter puts you in prime position for some incredible angling action. Whether you’re after a true Floridian inshore adventure, some delicious dinner options, or a rod-bending big game battle, simply pick a direction, hop aboard your chosen charter, and off you go!
 
Head west of the inlet, and you’ll be greeted by a world of inshore fishing opportunities. Sebastian Inlet State Park provides direct access to the prolific Indian River, including its meeting point with the St. Sebastian River. Redfish, Snook, Tarpon, Pompano, and Black Drum are regular catches here. A half day trip is the perfect introduction to Floridian-style inshore angling. More experienced? A full day trip gives you more time to test your skills. For an unforgettable Snook battle, a nighttime trip is a must!
 
East of the inlet, you’ll find the fish-filled nearshore and offshore waters of the Atlantic Ocean. If tasty table fare is at the top of your list, a nearshore adventure will see you casting your line over reefs and wrecks for Grouper, Snapper, and Cobia. Opting for a full day trip will allow you to explore a variety of structure and increase your chances of a monster catch.
 
Head even further east, and you’ll reach the stomping grounds of world-famous big game species such as Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, and Sailfish, only 15 miles from shore. Although it doesn’t take long to reach plentiful waters, many captains offer full or extended day trips that’ll allow you to experience this fishery at its finest.
 

Rules & Regulations

Cast off alongside an experienced charter captain, and you won’t have to worry about a thing. Your license will be covered, and you’ll be informed of any bag and size regulations regarding specific species.

January

Bluefish start to peak while the Pompano and Black Drum are numerous. Shrimping is really strong during this time, too.

February

As the weather slowly starts to warm up, crabbing gets better, with Blue and Stone Crabs being especially good targets. Bluefish fishing is still going strong, as well as Pompano.

March

Bluefish fishing winds down this month, though they’ll still be available. This is the last chance to go on a shrimping family day out, as it all slows down next month.

April

The weather and waters both start to heat up in April. Southern Flounder like warmer waters, so put them on your "to-catch" list. Pompano and Snook are also available.

May

Snook and Pompano can be caught in May. Smaller Tarpon start frequenting the St. Sebastian River during spring and will continue into the summer.

June

Snook take a bigger bite out of the local area as the weather brightens. Redfish and Mangrove Snappers are plentiful during this time of year, too.

July

Head to Sebastian Inlet in July for an inshore fishing bonanza! Flounder, Redfish, Snook, and Black Drum are all plentiful. Mackerel and Snappers appear in great numbers, too.

August

Mangrove Snapper are in high season during this period, with Blue Runners, Lookdowns, and Spanish Mackerel winding down.

September

Snook and Redfish are teeming in the waters of the lagoon. Larger Tarpon move into the river and backcountry waters.

October

Redfish and Snook are still the prime targets for this season. Gulf Flounder can also be found during late fall. Hook the last Tarpon species before they start to migrate away.

November

Gulf Flounder and Spotted Seatrout start their high season during this month. Redfish and Snook can still be caught, albeit in smaller numbers.

December

Sheepshead peaks during the winter months. Southern Flounder and Spotted Seatrout are also present in larger numbers. Black Mullet can be targeted as well.

Waters can be a bit choppy. A bit better in April/May. But the fish still bite well.

July isn't the best month, but Captain Eric made it an enjoyable half-day searching for signs of fish and learning about the area's eco issues and treasure-hunting history.

The earlier the better for Florida In the summer time. It gets very hot, and most of the time during the summer it storms in the afternoon which doesn't pair well with fishing.

The weather was still warm enough in December to enjoy a day of fishing. Taking dramamine the night before and the morning of is highly recommended. Also as the floor in the boat got wet as we pulled in fish and this made it slippery and would suggest tennis shoes or some kind of shoes with traction. We had a great day!

I definitely recommend using Captain Gregory if you are wanting to pull in some great size fish. Even got the chance to get a Goliath grouper but failed. Maybe next time! Captain Gregory is a super nice guy that will go out of his way to make sure you are in the right spot to be catching fish.

I had a 9 hour trip with Captain Jay and his first mate, Rob. They were down to earth, easy going people. They knew where the fish were and thorough with their instructions. They were will to go as far as you need to make sure your experience was top notch. Caught a 12 ft sand shark and quite a few other. Cleaned the fish and explained how to prepare them. Awesome experience and would recommend!

We had a great time Captain Vinny is very knowledgeable and was able to put us on the fish even during windy rainy episodes. The entire trip was fantastic, we saw so much wildlife in both the Sebastian river and Indian river lagoon. What a great adventure would recommend to any level of angler and nature enthusiast.
