The most popular fish species you can target are Snook, Cobia, and King Mackerel (Kingfish). Top fishing techniques include Light Tackle, Heavy Tackle, and Trolling. Inshore fishing, nearshore 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.

Charter fishing is great as well as pier fishing, surf fishing is a little difficult with the gradual beach. March and April seem to be good times of the year.

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.

It was a little windy but Capt Sonny still took us out into the ocean fishing. We caught a lot of fish. I would highly recommend Captain Sonny to anyone for fishing. Also he accommodated our large group of 5 with his large boat. We will definitely use Captain Sonny again.

Had booked all day off shore, and Bryan was good enough to call before and let us know a cold front was moving in. Switched to 1/2 day inshore. Put us on 2 Slot Snook, and bunch of nice Jacks, with time left to chase Tarpon! Great time! Bryan really works to find the catch. Cant recommend enough.

The weather played a big role but that didn't stop our captain. He worked hard to keep us on the fish and after a few drifts down the river we had our limit of mangrove snapper. Sonny was very knowledgeable about the fishery and the ride on the boat was so smooth it really handled the chop well. We'll be taking a charter with this captain again!

Had a blast, my youngest caught one of our dream fish fish and it was a great day out on the water. Today the fish where real picky because of a strorm that rolled through the day before but our Captain did his best and put us on a couple we lost or fish but the one that stuck was one hell of a sailfish! We will be back!!

We had a fantastic time on our trip and would highly recommend Captain Taylor. We saw an amazing amount of activity in the area we fished and were able to land a few. The team made sure we had a great time and we are looking forward to when we can do this again.

Captain Mike was awesome. One of our party had little experience with fishing and Captain Mike showed him everything he need to know, he ended up catching the most fish. Captain Mike was on the spot with baiting the hooks, finding good spots to find fish and holding good conversations. Fun was had by all. Highly recommend!

What a awesome experience. My wife and I had the best time ever. We caught fish but also learned so much. Mike is very patient and kind and full of knowledge! Mike went above and beyond of what he had to do on our trip. If I could give him more stars for his review I would. He is highly recommended and I will come back and go with him again. Mike made our fishing trip a memorable one. Thanks for the great time Cory

My family (My husband and three kids) had an amazing experience today. Captain Bryan was attentive, patient, knowledgeable and kind. He is great for all levels of fishing. He was accommodating with a schedule change. Many fish were caught! We come to Vero almost every year and will book with Captain Bryan again.

We had an amazing time with Capt. Sonny. We did a half day in-shore fishing trip. We caught a variety of fish, and the kids had a blast. I would recommend AA Fishing Charters to anyone who wants a true fishing experience in Florida. Made some memories that my kids will always remember. Thanks Capt. Sonny!
