It’s not widely known among locals or visitors, but Vero Tackle is under new ownership and
our services have only gotten better. We’re lucky to call Vero Beach, FL our home and even
luckier to have the opportunity to share the bounties of the Indian River Lagoon with you! We
offer a wide variety of opportunities to go explore and experience Vero Beach, but our fishing
charters are our most booked excursion.
Over the last several months we have had the honor to create memorable experiences on and
off the water with locals and visitors alike. We’ve got snowbirds who book weekly fishing trips,
locals who take advantage of our captains’ expertise in finding the best spots for the current
conditions, visitors who may have never even cast a rod before, and everyone in between. No
matter who you are, if you book a fishing charter with us we guarantee a safe and educational
experience that will leave you feeling more connected to fishing than ever before.
People book fishing charters in Vero Beach for a variety of reasons, but the most popular is
wanting to catch a specific fish. During August we are usually catching tarpon but snook and
pompano season are right around the corner. Tarpon starts to wind down around September,
but in contrast September 1st marks the start of snook season which continues all the way
through December 15th. Pompano will start to show up too, and remain thick from October
through November but can be caught all winter.
So if you’re reading this around the end of August, start of September it’s the perfect time to
book a charter for snook fishing or to catch a huge tarpon!
Arguably, the best part about a Vero Tackle Fishing Charter in Vero Beach, FL is that we do all
the planning, packing, and decision making for you. When you call in to book yours we ask you
all the right questions to figure out what the best day on the water for you is. From there we
make decisions like what bait, rod, reels, tackle, and boat to take. We have 10 captains, 7 of
which are full time! If you don’t request a specific captain we will match you up with the best fit
based on your desired fishing trip. All of our captains are licensed, carry insurance, and take
into consideration that the environment is uncontrollable, leaving room in their schedules to be
flexible with you, the weather, and life. After all, not everyone is great at waking up at first light
when they’re on vacation.
Your captain will teach you everything you need to know, and if you’re here to relax, they’ll even
cast for you! Your Vero Tackle fishing charter gets to be as involved or relaxing as you’d like it
to be. The best bait will be fished or prepared for you depending on your targeted catch and if
you want to keep your catch, your captain will be able to tell you if your fish complies with
regulations. They’ll even fillet and wrap your dinner!
Loved what you fished with? Stop in the tackle shop and pick it up, or we can order it to have it
delivered to you or in store. Our guides are familiar with the brands we carry and can make
recommendations specific to your fishing style and needs.
If you’ve never learned how to fish the captains can cast for you or teach you as much as you’d
like to learn. It can be as relaxing and educational as you’d like it to be! Kids and adults alike
love to experience fishing in a professional but relaxed way that leaves room for lots of
questions and experimenting. Always wanted to try out that one rod? Let us know so we can
have it read for you! Been curious about fishing a new spot on the Indian River Lagoon but want
someone familiar with the area to introduce it to you, let us know! Our captains are here to give
you knowledge, advice, and confidence so you can land that dream catch.
We can comfortably take up to 6 people, and have a variety of boat types that offer various
fishing styles such as fly fishing, inshore fishing, inlet fishing. We have a fleet of pontoons, flats
boats, and bay boats, all captained by seasoned captains familiar with the best spots and
patterns of the Indian River Lagoon. Typically our captains take you somewhere between Ft.
Pierce and Sebastian, but will occasionally venture offshore.
Fun fact: All of our captains have been fishing the Indian River Lagoon for nearly their whole
lives. They know these waters better than the backs of their hands, and even better they
recognize patterns and conditions better than newer captains too! Our captains are passionate
about fishing, and helping you connect with that same rush of joy every time you head out on
the water. Our captains are comfortable fishing with people from all skill levels, and people
come to us with a wide variety of intentions when heading out on the water. From gaining a
better understanding of the local ecosystem through a hands on approach to landing a dream
fish while on vacation we see it all and our captains never miss a beat.
Need a company retreat? Book multiple boats and plan to experience the trip together. There’s
nothing more fun than teaming up with your coworkers and going head to head in a fishing
competition. “First team to catch a snook wins” or “First team to catch 10 fish wins” you pick the
game and we’ll set you up. Want a private VIP experience? We have you covered. Just mention
to the concierge while booking that you’d like to keep your experience private. We roll with the
punches and customize your experience down to the hook and line. We’ve never had to tell a
guest that we couldn’t at least try our best to create their dream day on the water. Our business
partners on the other hand sometimes have plans of their own…the fish don’t always play by the
rules but leave it to your captain to work with what the day presents.
Fishing is a practice, and we’ve got the skill. Our captains value safety first, ensuring you can
relax into the environment and enjoy the trip and know how to work with the ebb and flow of
nature. Finding the right captain for you isn’t always easy, but with us it is. Click HERE to learn
