January Fishing Report Stuart, Florida


January started off the slow side but Stuart Florida fishing’s been good to excellent the last couple of weeks. We’ve been catching 5 to 10 dolphin on most of our fishing charters this month and most of them are heavy lifters and gaffers. Dolphin ranging in size from 10 to 20 pounds have been aggressively feeding from Jensen Beach to Jupiter and the best bite’s been 6 to 8 miles off the coast of Stuart. Dolphin, also referred to as mahi-mahi or dorado are allot of fun to catch and always taste great on a plate.

The lack of cold fronts slowed the sailfish migration and the sailfish bite is just starting to fire up off the coast of Stuart. A couple more cold fronts and we should have a red hot sailfish bite as we push on into February. We’ve been catching a few sailfish on the troll but the threadfins are finally showing up and we’ll be doing more live bait fishing for sailfish. We have another cold front pushing through this weekend and hopefully a red hot sailfish bite when the conditions settle down next week.

Kingfish and bonita have been providing the action around the reefs & wrecks and the cobia are on the way. There’s been a few cobia around but they’ll stack up in the coming weeks and usually show up with the manta rays in February.

It’s a great time of year for Stuart Florida Fishing the REEL BUSY is consistently one of the top producing charter boats in the area so give us a call and let’s catch some fish. We hope to take you fishing soon. Capt. Wayne Brodeur 772-341-6609 Reel Busy Charters two fishTim Fish


Stuart Florida Sailfish & Dolphin


Now’s the time to do some Stuart Florida Fishing aboard the REEL BUSY. Sailfish and Dolphin are providing most of the action but we’re also catching Tuna, Kingfish, Bonita, Sharks and Wahoo.

Dolphin fishing has been good to excellent although they’ve been scattered about. We’ve had to do some hunting around but we’ve been catching at least 4 or 5 on every fishing charter. We caught a dozen dolphin yesterday and jumped off just as many. The dolphin are pushing through in packs so we’ve been having more multiple hook ups than singles lately, you gotta love it.

There hasn’t been a red hot sailfish bite yet but there will be and it could happen any time now. We’ve been getting 2 or 3 opportunities and catching 1 or 2 but we should be getting at least 4 or 5 opportunities, 7 to 10 on a good day. The sailfishing is decent and will continue to get better so if you want to catch a sailfish now’s the time to give us a call and catch sailfish.

Baits starting to show up around some of the reefs & wrecks and the Cobia won’t be too far behind them. Giant Manta Rays with packs of Cobia below usually show up in January/February and sight fishing for cobia under the manta rays is a blast.

Happy Holidays !  Reel Busy Charters, Capt. Wayne Brodeur 772-341-6609


Welcome to our Stuart Florida Fishing Report. If you’re visiting Jupiter, Stuart, Jensen Beach or Port St. Lucie this is a great time of year to get hooked up with a Stuart Florida Charter Boat.

Sailfish and MAHI-MAHI are providing most of the action and the conditions are picture perfect this week. We’ve been catching MAHI-MAHI ranging in size from 5 to 25 pounds just 6 to 8 miles off the beach. On most days you can expect to catch at least 3 to 5 MAHI-MAHI with a Sailfish or two in the mix.

As fall settles in the Sailfish and MAHI- MAHI begin their winter migration and the waters off the coast of Stuart Florida are teaming with fish. Sailfish, MAHI-MAHI, Blackfin Tuna, Kingfish, Cobia, Barracuda, Bonita and Wahoo are all possibilities this time of year.

We’ve been catching Sailfish and/or MAHI-MAHI on all of our fishing charters for the last couple of weeks with a few small Blackfin Tuna in the mix. You can expect to catch fish aboard the REEL BUSY and our 35′ CABO EXPRESS is the perfect fishing machine for a great day on the water catching fish.
