Captain Charlie Jones Fishing

Captain Charlie Jones Fishing has the goal to put you on fish and provide you with a lifetime of memories. They do it by taking you to the best and most fish-populated areas of the Indian River, the Vero Beach, and the surrounding inlets. The river is part of the Indian River Lagoon system that fish species like Redfish, Snook, and Jack Crevalle call home.

You will fish with Captain Charlie Jones who has over 45 years of experience fishing all over Florida, and is very passionate about saltwater fishing. He retired a decade ago and moved to Fort Pierce to set up a business he longed for his whole life. And he loves every minute of it!

He will take you out on board his comfortable Triton 240 LTS Bay boat. The boat includes top-notch fishing tackle, latest electronics, a wireless trolling motor, and a power pole. The built-in ice chest and two large live wells for live bait and release well, are all available on board too.

Capt. Charlie will take you fishing in the waters around Fort Pierce. This is a very fish-rich area, so there’s a variety of fish species you can target. Your target species will include Redfish, Snook, Speckled Seatrout, Tarpon, Sheepshead, Mangrove Snapper, Cobia, Grouper, Jack Crevalle, Tripletail, and Barracuda.

Specializing in light tackle fishing using both live bait and artificial lures, Capt. Charlie is comfortable with both experienced and novice fishermen whom he gives lots of personal attention. He’ll make sure you have a great day on the water. All ages are welcome, so bring your kids with you for some quality family time.

Enjoy your day fishing under the Floridian sun with Captain Charlie Jones Fishing, and you’re sure to leave home smiling!
