The "Sailfish Capital of the World" has lived up to its name again this year!  Stuart was named to the 2021 "Best Winter Fishing Destinations" nationwide, according to the blog FishingBooker. It was the only Florida city to make the list. FishingBooker is an online marketplace for booking yacht charters for recreational fishing.

The website hyped Stuart's sailfish season, saying people from all over the country should flock to the city during the winter season to test their fishing skills.  The reason Stuart is unique to other places on this coast is that the Gulf Stream comes very close to shore here and can be reached within 10 miles. For anglers, that means that you have a chance of reeling in a Sailfish on a four- or five-hour fishing trip! In

Snook fishing is something South Floridians are known for, and while it's a fun sport, it's tough for a beginner to figure out on their own. Snook not only puts up a powerful fight, but its mildly-firm white meat has an excellent flavor due to its diet of crustaceans and other small fish. If you're looking to catch a snook in the Jupiter area but don't know where to start, try one of our local snook charters! They take care of everything, as long as you take care of charter fee and a customary 15-20% tip!

On February 1st, the much awaited 2021 recreational snook season opens in Palm Beach County for the duration of February, March, April, and May until the last day on May 31st. 

South Florida snook is one of the most prized and most regulated fish due to a few good reasons. Snook not only puts up a powerful fight, but its mildly-firm white meat has an excellent flavor due to its diet of crustaceans and other small fish. Because of this, if snook fishing was left unmanaged, they would surely be a rare sight.

Buying or selling a snook in the state of Florida is illegal, so if you’re dying to feast on this sly silver fish, you’ll just have to catch it yourself!

The bag limit for harvesting snook is ONE per harvester per day, your catch must be
