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
