3/4 Day Fishing Charter Experience in Stuart, Fl

Welcome to Catch of the Day Charters, where your fishing dreams become reality on our ¾ Day Stuart Fishing Charter. This 6-hour trip is a great way to have enough time on the water to do a variety of fishing techniques but still be back on the dock with plenty of time left in the day. Perfect for families and crews on vacation, we leave at 6:50 A.M. sharp for that early morning action! Enjoy the scenic views of the Manatee pocket on the way out, and keep an eye peeled for Dolphins. This charter promises an unforgettable experience in the heart of Florida’s stunning coastal waters.


Setting Sail: Long before the sun comes up the catch crew is already at Manatee Marina, hard at work prepping fresh baits and making sure everything is set to embark on our 3/4 Day adventure. It’s a short ride to the action from our slip in manatee pocket, just 3.5 NM to the inlet ensures you get the most time fishing. Make sure you have a hat and polarized sunglasses with you to see more of the action!

Exploring Offshore Wonders: Venturing up to 12 miles offshore, our expert crew is on a mission to uncover the hidden treasures of the ocean. Watch for temperate changes, current rips, or any floating debris on the surface throughout the day. A floating pallet or big grass patch could substantially change our Catch of the Day!

Thrilling Fishing Pursuits: The excitement kicks off with trolling targeting pelagic superstars such as Sailfish, Mahi-Mahi, Tuna, Wahoo, and Kingfish. Trolling lets us cover the most ground while fishing giving us the greatest chance of finding where the fish are located. On our 3/4 day we will switch up to bottom fishing for snappers and other tasty favorites depending on the surface bite, so if you would like more time bottom fishing, let the Capt. know!

Return to the Dock: Our maritime journey culminates around 12:45 P.M. as we head back to the dock. But fear not – the adventure doesn’t end there. Our dedicated crew takes the reins, ensuring your catch is expertly cleaned and packaged for you to savor later that evening or at one of the famous local restaurants right behind the boat!
