World Class Fishing

Stuart, located in Martin County, is known as the Sailfish Capital of the World. Sitting on the most biodiverse estuary in the Northern Hemisphere, Martin County is home to 100 artificial reef systems and over 800 species of fish. Its climate, waterways, natural environment and opportunity for diverse catches make it a mecca for fishermen and nautical explorers year-round. An array of unique shops, fine restaurants, great golf courses and quiet beaches make a day ashore fun, too. Inshore, offshore, saltwater or fresh, head out for an adventure and reel in the memories.

Catch a Florida Memory

Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has launched Catch a Florida Memory saltwater angler recognition program.
The Catch a Florida Memory program recognizes anglers for their fishing skills and promotes the targeting of multiple species, thus decreasing fishing pressure on the most commonly sought-after species.

Anglers of all ages and skills can earn prizes, recognition and bragging rights while supporting marine fisheries conservation. Anglers submit photos to qualify for one of FWC’s three Saltwater Angler Recognition Programs. Whether you’ve caught a Saltwater Reel Big Fish, a Grand Slam or you’re crossing new species off your Saltwater Life List, there is a challenge for anglers of every level!

Martin County - Where the Dreams of Fishermen Come True

Why is the snook fishing here so good? It has to do with a combination of factors – the warm climate (snook are like a big tropical fish on steroids); the brackish St. Lucie River Estuary, Florida’s largest true river south of where the St. Johns River goes to sea at Jacksonville, lined with red mangrove trees; the shallow waters of the Indian River Lagoon, where seagrass meadows offer habitat for juvenile snook; and a plentiful and diverse food supply.

"Snook City" or "Kingfish Kountry"

It’s a well-known fact that Stuart and Martin County are often referred to in fishing circles as “The Sailfish Capital of the World.” What is lesser know, but just as true, is that this area of Florida’s Treasure Coast can also be called “Snook City” or “Kingfish Kountry” for the same reasons the sailfish has become a community icon.

Winter Fishing in Martin County

When the winds whip around to the north and the ocean and river temperatures drop just a little bit, the winter visitors begin to arrive. Inshore, that means pompano, ladyfish, bluefish and spinner sharks. For those in the bigger boats that can handle the winter wave heights, sailfish become the main target.
