Fish Heads of Stuart (a.k.a. Fish Heads to the locals) is a family owned and operated small business located in Stuart, Florida, Sailfish Capital of the World. While our Sailfish fisheries tends to get all the recognition and press, Stuart is also home to arguably one of the best inshore fisheries anywhere in the US. It truly is an Angler's Paradise.

Our physical store overlooks one of the prettiest marinas along the Atlantic, Sailfish Marina of Stuart, and is conveniently located near the mouth of the Manatee Pocket, minutes to the St. Lucie Inlet. Fish Heads of Stuart is accessible by both land and sea. If arriving by boat, a large floating dock is literally steps away from our front door or if fueling at Sailfish Marina, we are an easy stroll down the dock. Via the road, we have ample parking, and our parking lot is trailer friendly with an easy turnaround.
Once at the store, we offer a full selection of Tackle, Live & Frozen Bait, as well as Reels & Rods. Line Spooling and Lure Rigging Services are available as well. Being located at a marina, we also carry Marine Supplies, in addition to Apparel and Sunglasses. If headed out fishing, we always have plenty of ice on hand, as well as water, soda & beer, and sandwiches & snacks. And, if in need of a treat for the kids, or simply wanting to indulge your self... nothing beats ice cream…especially on a hot day.
Since we opened our doors back in February of 2012, we have often been asked how did we come up with the name "Fish Heads". Long story short… our roots go back to Long Beach Island, New Jersey. On Long Beach Island, there is s tackle store, Fisherman's Headquarters, known to the locals as "Fish Heads". Having worked there for a decade before jumping over to the Manufacturing and then Distribution side of the Tackle Industry, we have always maintained a close relationship with the owner of Fisherman's Headquarters and his family, and to be honest much of what was learned about running a tackle shop. When the opportunity came along to open up our own Tackle Store, we racked our brains for names…Stuart Fishermen, Fishing Center of Stuart...none of which felt right. And, then it hit us…Fish Heads of Stuart. We called the owner of Fisherman's Headquarters, got his blessing and hit the ground running. Fisherman's Headquarters is still up and running today and if ever up in the NJ area, I'm sure the "Fish Heads" crew on Long Beach Island would love to see you.
