Captain Fernando was a pleasure and very professional. The equipment used was a little more higher end than I’m used to on a charter. Though a little windy the day we fished, we still caught some snook and really enjoyed the time on the mangroves. I would definitley recommend Fernando to anyone.

This was by far one of the best charters we have ever taken and we have fished all over the place.  Captain Fernando Stalker is a highly experienced Captain who knows how to find fish. Our non stop action was a thrill.  His professionalism and enthusiasm for what he does is apparent and we look forward to fish with him many more times.

From his first contact with me, Captain Fernando was friendly, helpful and professional. A day with him on the water is a day well spent. I had booked for an inshore trip, but the Cobia were biting, so he wanted to check with me to see if I wanted to go offshore to fish for them.  I appreciate his consideration, and I caught my first cobia and jack crevalle.  Inshore, we had a great time fishing for and catching snook. Capt. Fernando knows where the fish are and how to catch them—I can’t wait to fish with him again the next time I am in the area.

This trip had everything you want in a private charter.  Fernando and Scott were the perfect mix of professional and friendly.  They went all out to get us on fish and make our trip enjoyable, even if the fish didn’t always cooperate.  We got to fight plenty of Jack Crevalle and got a taste of some Mangrove Snapper.  All of this at a very reasonable price.  Thanks for the great trip guys!

It was great to have two world class fly and bait casting fisherman from Brazil on board. We headed offshore early in the morning where they caught 7 Spanish Mackerels. We then headed inshore for some snook action, we landed a 31 inch and 4 others in the 20 to 25 inch category.
Thank you for joining us on Sea Stalker Charters.

I had an amazing time today with Sea Stalker Charters. You will not find more friendly, professional and knowledgeable captains than Fernando & Scott. They put us on the fish as well as taught us techniques on where to find and how to catch our targeted fish. It was nonstop fun and laughs. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking to have some fun and catch lots of fish. Again thanks a lot for a fun day Fernando and Scotty. We will definately be fishing with you guys again.

It was great to have Ronny and Ari on board Sea Stalker Charters and putting them on some fish.

My two sons and I had an absolute blast on the fishing trip with Scott and Fernando. Both boys have now caught their biggest fish and there is hope that the fishing bug has really bitten. Scott and Fernando were patient and supportive with Josh and Matt - helping where needed, but trying to let them find their own feet as well.  We caught a good selection of fish including a Juvenile Goliath Grouper which my elder son thought was going to pull him into the water.

Thanks for a great trip and Josh and Matt are already asking when we can go again.  They both had fun and really enjoyed being around Fernando and Scott.  I would definitely recommend Sea Stalker Charters, especially if you have young kids or anyone new to fishing.  The Captain’s really worked hard to ensure we had a great time - the bait well was well stocked by the time we got there, if a site was not producing we moved on, for the time it rained we were fishing under the bridge so as not to get wet and they ensure we had maximum and productive fishing time.

My boyfriend and I took a Father’s Day weekend charter with Sea Stalker.  From the moment I booked the charter, Capt. Fernando was fantastic.  Maintained contact with me regarding weather and charter and planning our day. 

Both Capt Fernando and Capt Scott were on our charter and they went out of their way to make sure we had a great day, especially my boyfriend as this was his dad’s day gift.  If the bite wasn’t the greatest at one spot, then on to the next until we were catching fish.  Caught lots of snook and jacks and then I caught a juvenile Goliath Grouper.  Made BF a little jealous so Capt. Fernando said you want to catch a big one?  And we were off….Got him hooked up on a monster 250lb one.  Highlight of the day.  Tried for some tarpon late in the day and got a 6ft 150lb bull shark instead which put up a fight!  Was really great because it gave us an opportunity to catch things we normally wouldn’t (like the huge grouper and shark).

Throughout the day Capt. Fernando and Capt. Scott worked with us (well mainly me) on casting technique and showing us what to look for on the water for tell tale signs of fish.  They are great Captains for experienced fishermen/women or novices. 

Afterwards they sent us lots of photos of the day as well as an edited video of some of our biggest catches.  If in the Stuart area, I highly recommend this charter.  Their prices was extremely reasonable and you WILL fish the entire time!  Plus, you really couldn’t fish with a nicer couple of guys.  We own a boat and would have them aboard ours anytime they are over in the Tampa area in a heartbeat.

Booked a trip for my son and I and we had a fantastic time!  Fished in-shore and caught for several different types - Snook, Snapper, and Yellowtail jacks.  Went into the inlet to the Atlantic and caught bigger jacks!  Captain Scott was great; he took us to the several places where the fish were “bubbling in the water!”. Captain Stalker was excellent with the communication details - emails, phone calls and texts were quickly returned and answered promptly!  Couldn’t ask for a better trip!  What a GREAT day!  Will definitely book again and recommend to others!

Absolutely outstanding day! Captain Fernando is not only a true professional, but also just a great guy you would want to go have a beer with. He was extremely patient with 2 pretty inexperienced anglers, but was also equally excited when we missed and caught fish - he is a captain that really cares about your experience. I took a close friend who hadn’t fished in 20 years and we would have had fun if we caught nothing - but Captain Fernando was not going to let that happened, see pics! I am a part-time FL resident and I will be going again. Would highly recommend the experience.

First day we went out for a 6 hour trip-wind came up and fishing was not easy but Capt. tried many various methods and we caught snook, red fish sea trout, and sheepshead-we actually fished for 7 1/2 hours.
Second day two of us went and fished the ocean-In 2 hours we caught over 30 Spanish Mackerel ,a number of Jacks,half dozen of nice blue fish about 5 lbs. each and blue runners—about 70 fish. Seas were building so we left the area-wind picked up again and we could have fished more but we were very satisfied with the morning bite.
Fernando the Capt. really tries every method to insure that the customer has a good time catching fish-his equipment is in perfect shape and the boat is comfortable-first day we had 3 guys and we had plenty of room.

After striking out badly in Fort Lauderdale we decided to try Sea Stalker Charters for a last ditch effort to catch some fish. Captain Fernando and Captain Scott took us out to try for trophy’s and had a few good bites and had big one on but it did get off. When the bite stopped there they wasted no time and took us where they knew we could bend some poles. We had a blast catching a crap load of Spanish mackerel. Kept 30 and they filleted them out for us so we had a good pile to take home. I’ll definitely be back.

My husband and I are from California and were visiting family in Stuart, Fl. As a treat, we decided to go on a fishing charter in the area and came across Sea Stalker Charters. Overall the experience was one of a kind!

The Boat: Clean, spacious, and freedom to move around. Easily fits a family of 4 comfortably and safely. The boat is current on the coast guard safety check as well. Water and a cooler full of ice was provided; therefore, my husband and I were able to bring sandwiches and some fruit cups.

The Captain: Captain Fernando Stalker is so personable and easy to get along with. His extreme patience with our inexperience was comforting and did not make us feel out of place at all. He is willing to teach if you are willing to learn. For my husband and I, Cpt Stalker was a perfect fit!

The Fishing: Captain Stalker knew ALL the places to catch fish in the area! He based his fishing locations on tide, moon phase, and other various means. There was certainly not a dull moment on the boat! Within a matter of 10 minutes, we could 5 fish! Honestly, it was a lot of fun. Both my husband and I also caught our first Snook.

The Views: When you are unfamiliar with the area, seeing a good view is important. The Captain brought us to areas along the water that were very scenic. Just as a note: the Atlantic ocean at sunrise was so calm and beautiful. It was truly unparalleled to anything here on the West Coast.

Overall, I would recommend this charter to everyone! It is affordable, fun, and great for experienced fishers and novices. Next time my husband and I go back to Florida, I plan on booking us another Charter!

You wont find a better crew and well prepared fishing charter in South Florida! We experienced some bottom fishing, live baiting and site fished the view along the beautiful coastline within Martin County! Thanks for the quality fishing experience Sea Stalker Charters! I am now hooked on fishing and cant wait to get out on the waters and do it all over again!
