Catching Sailfish and Dolphin

 

Welcome to REEL BUSY CHARTERS and to our Stuart Florida Fishing Report. Sailfish and Dolphin are the main attraction during the fall and winter months but we’re also catching Blackfin Tuna, Wahoo, Kingfish, Bonito and Barracuda.

We’ve been catching dolphin and sailfish on most of our Stuart Florida Fishing Charters but this weekend they took turns. One day we caught 14 dolphin and only had one sailfish in the spread all day. The next morning 1/2 day we caught and released 3 sailfish and never had a dolphin bite.

Sailfish and dolphin are pushing through in packs so multiple hook-ups are abundant this time of year. Some days we’ll catch more dolphin, some days more sailfish but most days we’ll catch both.

There’s been a few wahoo around and we’ve been catching a few blackfin tuna of 20/25 pounds. GET HOOKED-UP aboard the REEL BUSY,  Call….. Capt. Wayne  772-341-6609

We look forward to taking you fishing, Capt. Wayne

Sailfish & Tuna

 

Welcome to our Stuart Florida fishing Report. The summer sailfish bite continues to be good to excellent on most days and the Blackfin Tuna are stacked on the ridge 10 miles offshore. The dolphin fishing continues to be hit and miss but we’re catching a few gaffers up to 18 pounds and it’s picking up a bit. Kingfish and bonito are providing plenty of action in-between the sailfish bites on the reef line just 5 or 6 miles offshore.

The Blackfin tuna on the hill are 5 to 10 pound footballs and they’re aggressively feeding right now. We caught 21 blackfins in about 2 hours yesterday and although they’re not as big as the tunas we catch on the Bahamas side they still look great on a plate.

It’s well know around the world that Stuart Florida has an awesome sailfish bite during the winter months but the summer sailfish bite is second to none. We’re getting 3 to 5 hook-ups on most of our sailfish charters and catching 2 or 3.

The dolphin fishing’s been hit & miss both near shore and offshore but running and gunning the deeper waters of the gulfstream is my favorite this time of year. We don’t always find them out there but when we do it’s game on.

There’s been allot of action around the six mile reef. Sailfish, kingfish, bonito, dolphin, cobia, amberjack, sharks and snappers. Give us a call and let’s catch some fish. Capt. Wayne Brodeur, Reel Busy Charters 772-341-6609reel6

The Dolphin Bite is On

IMG_0390

Now’s the time to do some Stuart Florida Fishing. The dolphin bite is on and we’re catching dolphin of 15 to 25 pounds on almost every fishing charter. We’re starting to see a few schooling dolphin but most of the dolphin we’re catching right now are 7 to 12 pounds. Our largest dolphin so far this year is 30 pounds and we usually catch one or two in the 40 to 50 pound class this time of year.

The blackfin tuna bite is usually red hot by now but it’s been just a pick on the hill so far. We’re catching a few but we’re still waiting for them to stack up. We marked a pack last week so maybe when the conditions settle down the tuna bite will turn on.

The sailfish bite is hit & miss as it usually is this time of year. We’ve been catching a few on the current edges but we’re catching allot more dolphin than sailfish.

We approaching the top three months of the year for our Yellowfin Tuna Trips and our Bahamas Fishing Adventures. Call Capt Wayne 772-341-6609 and customize your Bahamas Fishing Adventure today.

Springtime Fishing Stuart Florida

 

Welcome to Reel Busy Charters and our Stuart Florida Fishing Report. Spring is moving in and so are the dolphin/mahi mahi and blackfin tuna. We’re still catching a few sailfish but dolphin and tuna are providing most of the action offshore. Amberjack and cobia are showing up on the reefs and wrecks and there’s no shortage of sharks for those who like a tug of war.

Stuart Florida Dolphin Fishing is excellent during the springtime with dolphin/mahi mahi ranging in size from 5 to 35 pounds. Bull Dolphin from 40 to 60 pounds are caught every year in the gulfstream waters between Jupiter Florida and Stuart Florida, several by the captain and crew aboard the Reel Busy.

The blackfin tuna move onto a ridge 10miles off the coast of Stuart  this time of year and usually stick around throughout the summer months. Most of the blackfin tuna are 5 to 10 pounds with a few 15 to 20 blackfins this time of year. They’re not stacked up yet but we’re catching a few and they’re 8 to 12 pounds.

There’s a few sailfish around but they’ve been scattered about so we get a couple sailfish bites one trip and never see one the next. There’ll be days during the spring with a good sailfish bite as the current edges and weed lines come together but it’s been hit and miss as of late.

On a springtime fishing charters we fish for dolphin, tuna, wahoo, sailfish, blue marlin, kingfish, cobia and shark. Thanks for considering Reel Busy Charters and we hope to take you fishing soon. Call Capt. Wayne Brodeur  772-341-6609 20160312_081115

 

Stuart Florida, Sailfish Capital of the World

 

Welcome to Reel Busy Charters and another fishing report from Stuart Florida, Sailfish Capital of the World. The lack of cold fronts has the sailfish season off to a slow start but that’s all about to change. Acres of baitfish are showing up and there’s no doubt the packs of sailfish and cobia we’ve been waiting for won’t be far behind.

We’ve been catching 1 or 2 sailfish on most of our Stuart Florida Fishing Charters but we should be catching at least 3 to 5 this time of year. There’s packs of migratory sailfish coming down the coast with every cold front and right now they’re about 40 to 50 miles north of us. We’ll start seeing these packs as early as this week and should have an excellent sailfish bite through February this year.

The dolphin or mahi mahi provided most of the offshore action last week and the dolphin fishing should continue to be good to excellent on most days. Five to fifteen pound dolphin are moving around in packs so there’s been some quiet time in-between the pandemonium.

Kingfish are still abundant along the reefs and wrecks and although they might not be as tasty as mahi mahi , smoked kingfish is excellent.

Sailfish and Dolphin are the main attraction this time of year but we’ll also be catching kingfish, wahoo, tuna and cobia. Give us a call and get hooked up with a great day on the water catching fish. Capt. Wayne Brodeur, 772-341-6609 Reel Busy Charters IMGP0028IMGP0023

Stuart Florida and the Bahamas

 

The Reel Busy is a full time Stuart Florida Charter Boat but this time of year we do as many Bahamas fishing adventures as possible. We’ve been catching sailfish, dolphin, tuna, kingfish, cobia, bonito, amberjack and sharks on our Stuart Florida Fishing Charters. We’re catching Yellowfin Tuna, Blackfin Tuna, Blue Marlin, Snappers and Grouper on our Bahamas Fishing Adventures.

The summer sailfish bite has been excellent and should continue to be for a few more weeks. Stuart Florida is know for the wintertime sailfish bite during the winter sailfish migration but they can’t migrate south in the winter without passing through in the summer.

We’ve been catching small blackfin tuna and dolphin on the hill about 10 miles offshore. We’re releasing allot of peanut dolphin and not catching as many big ones as I like but we’re catching fishing and that’s always fun.

Let us know what you want to catch and we’ll try to get ‘r done. Sailfish, dolphin, tuna, cobia, kingfish, amberjack and sharks are all on the menu right now. Thanks for considering Reel Busy Charters and we look forward to hooking you up with a great day on the water catching fish. Capt.

Off & On Dolphin Fishing

 

The dolphin fishing went from hot to not last week and we covered allot of water to catch a few dolphin. The conditions were a bit sporty this week and the easterly breezes are pushing the dolphin closer to shore. We caught 6 of 8 dolphin on Tuesday in 600 feet of water and 6 for 7 the next day in less than 300 feet of water. The seas are settling down over the next few days and we expect to have excellent dolphin fishing as we move into next week.

The main attraction this time of year is dolphin/ mahi mahi off the coast of Stuart Florida but there’s been a few sailfish, blackfin tuna, wahoo and even a couple of marlin caught over the past week or so. Any day can be a great day this time of year aboard the Reel Busy so give us a call and let’s catch some fish.

Now’s the time to get hooked up with Reel Busy Charters for a yellowfin tuna trip, night time swordfish trip or a Bahamas Fishing Adventure. June and July is prime time for yellowfins and Bahamas Fishing Adventures so call Capt. Wayne and customize your next fishing vacation.

Dolphin & Tuna Time

April is here and we’re catching Dolphin/Mahi Mahi, Blackfin Tuna, Sailfish, Sharks and Cobia. This is a great time of year get hooked up with a Stuart Florida charter boat and catch some fish.

The dolphin bite was a steady pick last week and the big bull dolphin are starting to show up. Most of the dolphin we’ve been catching are 5 to 10 pounds but we had several 15 to 25 pound dolphin last week. The next 4 to 6 weeks is prime time for trophy size dolphin of 35 to 65 pounds so give us a call and let’s hunt one down.

Blackfin Tuna are stacking up on a ridge about 10 miles off the beach. The blackfin tuna vary in size from school to school. Some schools consist of primarily 3 to 4 pound tuna and others are all 7 to 10 pound tuna. Most of the blackfins this week were 5 to 8 pounds and we had couple pushing 10 to 12 pounds. The tuna fishing is good to excellent on most days and we’ll be happy to hook you up.

Sailfish aren’t the main attraction for most anglers this time of year but there’s been plenty around and we’ve been catching a few while trolling the edges for dolphin. The warmer waters and faster trolling speeds create a hot and aggressive sailfish bite that’s always an awesome sight to see.

Cobia and Big Bull Sharks are providing plenty of action just 3 miles off the beach. Most of the cobia we catch are 20 to 40 pounds, up to 60+ when the bull sharks cooperate. The bull sharks vary in size but most are 2 or 3 hundred pounds so while it’s always disappointing to lose your cobia to a shark it’s also an awesome sight to see.

Dolphin and tuna are providing most of the offshore action but we’ll also be catching sailfish, kingfish, wahoo, bonito and hopefully a blue marlin or two. Get hooked up with Reel Busy Charters and have a great time catching fish aboard the REEL BUSY. Capt. Wayne Brodeur 772-341-6609 Group Shot Reel Busy
