Stuart Florida Fishing / Bahamas Fishing Charters

reel6

Welcome to Reel Busy Charters and our Stuart Florida Fishing Report. There’s been allot of media hype concerning the dumping of Lake Okeechobee into the St. Lucie River but the offshore waters are still blue and the Reel Busy is still catching fish.

Sailfish, dolphin and tuna are providing most of the action off the coast of Stuart this time of year with a mix of kingfish, bonito and cobia. On the Bahamas side we’re catching tunas, marlin, dolphin, groupers and snappers.

The sailfish bite off the coast of Stuart is excellent this time of year. We’re getting 4 or 5 sailfish bites and catching 2 or 3 on most of our Sailfish Charters.

We haven’t been catching as many big dolphin as we did in the spring but there’s more packs of schooling dolphin pushing through. Big dolphin and blue marlin will pop up on packs of schooling dolphin this time of year and it’s game on.

The blackfin tuna never stacked up off the coast of Stuart this year but the ones we’ve been catching are all big blackfins of 15 to 25 pounds. Blackfin tuna and skip-jack tuna are abundant on the Bahamas side. We haven’t been catching as many yellowfin tuna as we usually do on our Bahamas fishing charters but we’re catching a few mixed in with the blackfins.

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.

Dolphin, Tuna and Wahoo

 

Welcome to Reel Busy Charters and our Stuart Florida Fishing Report. The last ten days we’ve had the good , the bad and the ugly. Some days the catching was good, some days the fishing was good but not so much catching going on and some days the sea conditions were just to ugly to fish.  The good news is April is here and so are the dolphin, tuna and wahoo.

After a dismal weekend of dolphin fishing the bite turned on this week and the dolphin are pushing through. The conditions were a bit too sporty for some of our customers this week so we came home early but not without a good catch of dolphin. Most of the dolphin are 7 to 10 pound gaffers and we’re catching at least one or two 15 to 20 pound dolphin per charter.

The Tuna fishing is off to a slow start but the blackfin tuna are starting to show up on the hill about 10 miles offshore. On most days we’ve been spending about an hour or so on the hill catching 5 or 6 tunas but when they stack up we’ll be catching a dozen or more. Most of the blackfins are 5 to 10 pounds with the larger blackfin tunas going 15 to 20 pounds.

April is an excellent month for Wahoo fishing off the coast of Stuart and Jupiter Florida. There’ll be a scattering of wahoo bites during the month of April with a flurry the week before and after the full moon of April 22nd. Most of the wahoo we catch are 15 to 35 pounds but we’ve caught 60 pound wahoo off the coast of Stuart, 80 pounds off the Bahama Bank.

The Reel Busy is a full time Stuart Florida Charter Boat fishing the waters off the coast of Stuart Fl. and the Bahamas. We specialize in dolphin, tuna, wahoo, sailfish and blue marlin. Experience makes a difference. We look forward to hooking you up with a great day on the water catching fish.

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 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.

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

MAHI-MAHI and SAILFISH

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.
