Crippen's Fly & Light Tackle Expeditions

Fort Pierce & the Treasure Coast

big trout caught with Fort Pierce Flats Fishing and Capt Scott CrippenFort Pierce, Florida is where our operation is based. The famed “TREASURE COAST” is compromised of Sebastian, Vero Beach, Fort Pierce and Stuart Florida, and Captain Scott has fished all of these waters his entire life. There are vast waterways surrounding the 4 towns, and there are always plenty of gamefish to target.

big snook caught Fort Pierce Flats Fishing and Capt Scott CrippenThe beautiful Indian River Lagoon runs inshore through the Treasure Coast area. The Indian River is one of the most famous and diverse fisheries in North America. Our snook fishery rivals any other, most world record Sea Trout have been caught from Ft. Pierce to Stuart, redfish reside year round, and great numbers of migratory fish such as tarpon and permit keep us busy throughout the year.The ability to fish the entire Treasure Coast provides much diversity for our anglers. Not only can we always get out of the wind and weather somewhere, but can follow migratory fish up the coast and extend our seasons. Our near shore (beach) fishing in the summer is phenomenal. We typically fish on the oceanside from May to September targeting migrating tarpon, permit, cobias, and schools of giant Jack Crevalle (20-30 lb average).

If you are staying anywhere on the Treasure Coast, we can make a day on the water work out.  We will be glad to come to you or you can come to us, depending on where the fishing is best at the time.  We also run an offshore fishing operation based out of Ft. Pierce.  If you have any interest please check out: www.fortpiercesportfishing.com.
