Inshore fishing in our Southern Region from Palm Beach to Pompano Beach is great for Snook, Tarpon, Baracuda and Jack Crevele. The calm waters in the intracoastal waterway make kayak fishing a breeze for any angler. Tackle includes light to medium spinning rod and reels with 15-30 lb test line. These fish are targeted along seawalls, docks, mangrove shorelines, bridges, spillways and the inlet. Pulling a big snook from a dock or jumping a tarpon under a bridge is an exciting way to spend the day or night.
Fishing in our northern region from Jupiter to Fort Pierce will allow you to chase a few more inshore species. Snook, Redfish, Seatrout, Tarpon, Tripletail, Flounder, Pompano and Sheepshead are all added to the list of what is a common catch in the Indian River Lagoon. Catching any three of these species in a single day is called an "Inshore Slam." Catching a slam is a great accomplishment and will be a great day to remember.
Tarpon are the biggest gamefish in our inshore fishery. They can be caught year round, but best times are April to November. Tarpon can weigh anywhere from 10-100lbs in the river and intracoastal waterway. They are known to put on a show with wild acrobatic jumps and flips. Tarpon are catch and release only fish. Don't worry though we strive to take the best pictures and video of your catch to give you a lifetime memory.
