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


Dolphin, Wahoo and Sailfish, Kingfish


The winds and seas have kept us at the dock more than we like the last ten days but the dolphin fishing’s been excellent. Caught 7 dolphin and lost a few more on a 1/2 day fishing charter and 16 dolphin and a wahoo on a 3/4 day fishing charter.

Dolphin, sailfish, kingfish and wahoo are all showing up right now just 6 to 8 miles offshore. The cold fronts push through with allot of wind and sporty seas but in-between the fronts the fishing is excellent. Give us a call and get hooked up with a great day on the water catching fish aboard the Reel Busy. Call Capt. Wayne Brodeur 772-341-6609 Reel Busy Charters 16 dolphin-wahoo


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.
