Martin County is known by professional anglers and fishing hobbyists as the go-to destination for incredible catches–Stuart didn’t earn the title “Sailfish Capital of the World” for nothing. FishingBooker, the world’s largest platform for organizing fishing trips, recently dubbed Martin County as the 2021 top summer fishing destination in the United States.
Martin County is home to world-class fishing, due to the area’s highly bio-diverse lagoon ecosystems and its situation at the start of the Florida Coral Reef Tract. These fish-friendly conditions attract more than 800 different species that can be found in the waters surrounding Martin County.
With the Gulf Stream a mere 10 miles from shore, anglers are almost guaranteed to come across wahoo, mahi mahi, and sailfish. For those who push beyond the Gulf Stream, they will encounter tuna and marlin.
