port st lucie florida fishing guide

Inshore, light tackle fishing charters are my specialty for up to 4 people. I also do fly/spin fishing charters, shark fishing charters, and wading charters. We can go in the morning, day, or evening. You don't have to worry about getting sea sick - there is always a calm place to fish on the river even if it's a windy day. LEARN MORE

Mandalay Island Fishing Charters | Stuart - Jensen Beach - Port Salerno FL

The treasure coast is one of the best saltwater estuaries for fishing in the world and it is home to some of the most exciting and fun Inshore fishing charters in the area. I stay on the inland water of the estuary & river systems, mainly the St. Lucie River which has a north & south fork, the Southern Indian River Lagoon, and the St. Lucie Inlet area. I also fish all the docks in the different areas.
