Trout, Lady Fish, Snapper and More
Vero Beach may be situated right on the Atlantic Ocean, but it’s really the Indian River Lagoon that contributes to the city’s reputation as a fishing hot spot.
The lagoon is more than a river – it’s a brackish estuary that’s home to a wide variety of fish like trout, lady fish, snapper, and more. Plus, it boasts many secret fishing spots that local captains are eager to share with you on a guided fishing charter.
Fish The Indian River
It’s hard to have a bad day fishing the Indian River on a Vero Beach fishing charter. Unlike the ocean, the Indian River Lagoon is often protected from the wind, making it relatively calm and great for beginner anglers and kids. While snook, red fish, and spotted sea trout are favorite river catches, you might find a pompano, bluefish, or black drum on the end of your line, too. No matter what you catch, there are several riverside restaurants that will cook your fish for you after a day on the water for a well-deserved meal.
You can spend a half-day or full-day out on the river, or even venture into the Atlantic if you’re up for a challenge (and when weather conditions allow). Near shore fishing charters to Sebastian Inlet or Fort Pierce Inlet make for some excellent fishing. Vero Beach fishing charters also include rods, reels, bait (live shrimp!) and your fishing license so all you have to do is show up ready to have a great time.
