There is a preserved pioneer-era homestead and a special museum devoted to regional history.

Here are a few ways to get started on your Jupiter fishing charter.
Explore the Loxahatchee River on your Jupiter fishing charter. If you are trying to catch a freshwater species, make sure you get that type of license so that you know the regulations about which fish you can keep.
Think about the type of fishing gear that you will need for your trip on your Jupiter fishing charter. Make sure you check first whether your boat comes with fishing gear included or not, since all of our fishing boats come with different amenities.
If you plan to do some night fishing, take a blue water fishing trip all the way to the Bahamas and back. This 120-mile round trip will allow you to troll for fish like blue and white marlin, yellowfin tuna, and wahoo.
These are a few of the fish you can catch on your fishing trip to Jupiter.
A barracuda is a large, predatory ray-finned fish with a fearsome appearance that can often be found off the Atlantic Coast.
This is the generic name for several deepwater bottom-dwellers. Red grouper and gag grouper are most popular with anglers. During the cooler months, they can be caught in shallow water by trolling artificial lures.
Tuna fishing in Fort Myers is best achieved with live bait which attracts the sharp-eyed fish.
Here are some different kinds of fishing you can do when you charter a fishing boat in Jupiter.
Some local anglers swear by live bait for snook fishing, but artificial lures are also becoming more popular. Whichever option you go for, there will be plenty of opportunities to practice your snook fishing technique in Jupiter. Just try fishing around the local bridges, jetties, and docks.
If you are looking for something different, dive under the water and explore the reefs. Spearfishing can get you shooting at grouper and snapper, as well as hogfish, one of the strangest looking fish in the ocean.
Kite fishing is a good way of imitating a flying fish skipping across the water. Sailfish tend to come very near to the shore in the Jupiter area. As long as the weather cooperates, this can be an incredibly effective and enjoyable fishing technique.
Here are some of the conditions you can expect from month to month in Jupiter.
You can still get some decent fishing done during the Florida winter. Sailfish tend to bite really well in the deeper waters.
Drop anchor from your Jupiter fishing charter into some of the deeper areas and keep trying to hook one of those sailfish.

The Jupiter Inlet is a great place to try and catch marlin, mahi-mahi, and wahoo during April.

Summer days in Jupiter are perfect for fishing. It is a great time to try for bonito off the coast.
You can catch so many types of fish offshore and in the rivers in the warm July water.
Get out on the water early, before daybreak. Keep in mind that big kingfish often swim in the shallower waters.
Mangrove snapper can often be found offshore among the reefs and wrecks.
The weather cools down a little in October and you have a good chance of seeing some sailfish in the waters.
Sailfishing really starts getting spectacular during November in Jupiter.
Temperatures are cooler in the mornings and evenings, but late afternoon catches of blackfin tuna are possible at this time of year.
