You have come to the right place when searching for a Fishing Charter In Stuart Florida. We have a very large network of artificial and natural reefs that hold large amounts of small bait fish hence the reason we have an abundance of big game trophy fishing very close to the St.Lucie inlet. Which makes for a quick ride to good fishing.
Starting in December Sailfish begin to migrate south through our area in abundance and will typically be on and around our local reefs right into the spring but the peak months are January and February. Also throughout the winter and spring months we have a large amount of reef dwelling predators Sharks, Amber Jacks, Wahoo, Cobia, Kingfish, Grouper, Snapper, Bonito, Permit, Snook. We also have Dolphin/Mahi Mahi year round through out the area but the peak months for large Dolphin/Mahi Mahi are March and April.
What to expect on a full day trip aboard the Bill Chaser with Capt. Don:
We leave from Pirates Cove Resort and Marina with a cooler full of fresh rigged bait. We have a short ride through the St. Lucie inlet and then we're on the search for fresh live bait which we'll catch on rod and reel with sabiki rigs a series of small hooks tied on a main line with a small lead weight and dropped down and jigged. And hopefully fill the livewells with fresh caught live bait. Then we're off to the deep blue waters just inside of the gulf stream. Depending on conditions and the fishing in past days will determine how we get started. Trolling can be very productive in our area off Stuart, FL. and lets us cover plenty of ground in search of ideal conditions to fish a more localized area where we may have greater success with fresh live bait. Once again depending on conditions we'll bump troll live bait through the outriggers or put up a kite and fish in a more condensed area. Towards the end of the trip we'll wind everything up and have a quick ride back to Pirates Cove Resort where Capt. Don will take pictures and clean and bag your catch. Also if interested the restaurant at Pirates Cove Resort will cook your catch it doesn't get more fresh than that!
