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

Welcome to our monthly Stuart Florida Fishing Report. For our weekly and bi-weekly fishing reports visit: reelbusycharters.com or stuart-florida-fishing.com.
Spring is in the air and springtime fishing off the coast of Stuart Florida is second to none. Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, tuna, cobia, kingfish, wahoo and even blue marlin can all be caught on a Stuart Florida fishing charter this time of year.
The near shore reefs and wrecks are holding cobia, sharks, kingfish and bonita just 3 to 5 miles off the beach. Cobia fishing is good to excellent this time of year and we’ll be catching cobia from 30 to 60 pounds on our near shore fishing charters.
The edge of the gulfstream is 7 to 10 miles off the beach this time of year and mahi mahi and tuna will be providing most of the action. Packs of mahi mahi are cruising the current edge’s and the blackfin tuna are stack up on a ridge 10 miles off the beach so multiple hook ups are abundant. Mahi’s and tuna’s will provide most of the action off shore with a few sailfish and wahoo in the mix. Blue Marlin are always a possibility during the spring and summer months as they’re searching out and feeding on mahi mahi and tuna.

Big Dolphin and a few Sails

 

Stuart Florida fishing is usually good this time of year and February’s off to a hot start. The near shore waters are loaded with bait now and we’re catching sailfish and dolphin just 6 to 8 miles off the beach. We’ll be catching sailfish, dolphin, kingfish, wahoo, cobia, bonita and sharks this month and have a few week days available the 3rd and 4th week this month.

The dolphin fishing has been good to excellent the last week or so and we’re catching dolphin from 5 to 25 pounds on all of our fishing charters. The average day is 5 or 6 dolphin and the good days we’re catching 10 to 15 dolphin. The dolphin are pushing through in waves so every day is different but overall the dolphin fishing has been excellent.

The recent cold fronts are finally pushing a few more sailfish down the coast and we look forward to a good sailfish bite in the coming days and weeks. We caught a couple, lost one and missed a couple sailfish bites on our last trip out and hope to find a red hot sailfish bite this week. Overall the sailfishing has been decent but not great and we’re still waiting for a late winter flurry.

The reefs & wrecks will soon be loaded with cobia that are following the bait down the Treasure Coast. We haven’t had any manta ray encounters as of yet but it’s only a matter of time before they show up with cobia in tow.

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

Love Catching Dolphin

There’s only one thing people love more than catching Dolphin/Mahi-Mahi ,… Eating Them !  We’ve been catching allot of dolphin for a couple of weeks now and all the action’s been just 4 to 6 miles off the beach. The Dolphin we’re catching right now vary in size from 5 to 15 pounds and they’re attacking in small packs so multiple hook-ups have been plentiful. The Dolphin fishing will continue to be good on most days throughout the fall and especially good after a cold front passes through.

It’s early in the sailfish migration but with cold fronts starting to roll through every seven to ten days the sailfish are on the move. We’ve had a decent sailfish bite and we’re catching or jumping off a sailfish or two on almost every trip. In the coming weeks we’ll be catching 2 or 3 sailfish almost every day as packs of sailfish move into the waters off the coast of Stuart Florida.

The main attraction is Sailfish and Dolphin this time of year but we’re also catching Kingfish, Tuna, Wahoo, Cobia, Bonita, Barracuda and Shark aboard the Reel Busy. We Catch Fish and you can too.
