Fort Pierce Fishing Charters

Fort Pierce is located on Florida’s Treasure Coast, a stretch of land from Indian River county to Palm Beach. It’s also known as the Sunrise City, sister to San Francisco in California known as the Sunset City. Located on Florida’s East Coast, Fort Pierce (or Ft. Pierce) is a favorite destination for anglers looking for a variety of fishing adventures. With access to the Intercoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean, options abound for fishing charters in Fort Pierce.

Many anglers travel A1A to the Fort Pierce South Bridge to drop a line either from the nearby pier or the jetties that are to the north and south of the inlet. There is also a marina on the east side of the bridge where many Fort Pierce fishing charters will dock.

Across the Intercoastal is the Ft. Pierce Inlet State Park where many locals and tourists spend the day exploring. Anglers will head to the south end of the park to fish the inlet and catch their next meal. There is a pier at the state park, or you can fish near the jetties where you’ll find a variety of inshore species. The inlet is a channel of fish migration and depending on the season you can catch a nice haul in just a few hours.

Fort Pierce Inshore Fishing

Inshore fishing in Fort Pierce will have you hooking up with redfish, snook, and spotted seatrout among others. The Indian River Lagoon is a treasure trove of these desirable inshore species and many more.

When it comes to Fort Pierce fishing, “gator trout” is without a doubt a highlight species. The IGFA All-Tackle World Record gator trout was caught in Fort Pierce in 1995 at 17-pounds, 7-ounces, according to Coastal Angler. The term “gator trout” simply means a really big spotted seatrout, weighing at least 5 pounds or is longer than 28 inches. Trout inhabit shallow waters, which are abundant in Fort Pierce. You can fish from a bay boat, kayak, or from the shore. Grab a handful of shrimp and drift the current to get your next trout.

Redfish is another popular species for Fort Pierce fishing charters. Redfish, or Red Drum, are part of the drum family and make a low grunting noise. They are a bronze or tan color with a distinct black dot at the start of their tail. Anglers typically bottom fish with shrimp or crab, or lures that imitate these crustaceans. Use a popping cork to get the reds’ attention, a top-water lure that makes a popping sound that imitates their food. Think of it like a duck call or dinner bell, luring redfish to your line.

Fort Pierce Offshore Fishing

Heading offshore from Fort Pierce will gain you access to the abundant fishery in the Atlantic Ocean. The Gulf Stream runs parallel to the coast of Florida and a variety of fish swim the current during their migration season. The Gulf Stream typically runs 20-40 miles from Fort Pierce, which is just a short boat ride away for your next offshore adventure. Trips typically last at least six hours for offshore excursions, as this gives anglers plenty of time to travel to the fishing grounds and hook into some trophy fish before heading back.

A few examples of the fishing opportunities for your Fort Pierce offshore charter includes sailfish, mahi mahi (also known as dolphin or dorado), king mackerel, snapper, and grouper just to name a few. Sailfish are a very popular request for Fort Pierce charters, which is good because they run pretty much 12 months of the year. Sailfish are part of the billfish family and are identified by the large dorsal fin that resembles a sail. Sailfish are among the fastest fish in the ocean, with runs that can easily spool a low capacity reel.

King Mackerel (or kingfish) are also frequently landed in Fort Pierce. They can grow over 30 pounds and are really good eating. Kings are distinguished by the thin yet prominent lateral line that starts high on the shoulder and has a sharp drop at their midsection. They are typically dark green or blue on the top and more silver on their sides and bottom. Fort Pierce charters will run multiple lines with live bait or spoons on downriggers or outriggers to attract kingfish. You’ll want to check your hook often, as kings are notorious bait stealers.
