Indian River Lagoon at Vero Beach, Fort Pierce and Stuart

The Vero Beach to Fort Pierce Inlet area of the Indian River Lagoon is the southern most portion of the Lagoon system and is characterized by a more tropical feel. With the Fort Pierce Inlet approximately 20 miles south of Sebastian Inlet the influence of the tidal changes is more apparent. In this area can be found larger redfish, tarpon and especially snook. This region is dotted with mangrove islands, grass flats and shallow shorelines.
