The sailfish season is off to a late start again this year but with 3 weeks of cold fronts pushing through it’s bound to light up reel soon. We’ve been catching and/or missing a few on most of our Stuart Florida Fishing Charters but nothing red hot yet. There’s another cold front pushing through today and tomorrow and I’m hoping to find a red hot sailfish bite and a few dolphin when we get back offshore in a couple days.
The cold fronts this time of year push acres of bait into the waters off the coast of Stuart followed by the predators we’re looking for; sailfish, dolphin, kingfish, wahoo, tuna and cobia. The shallower reefs, wrecks and edges will be holding sailfish, kingfish and cobia while the deeper reefs and current edges will be holding sailfish, dolphin, wahoo and tuna.
The fishing in January was hit & miss this year due to the lack of cold fronts but they’re pushing through now and Stuart Florida’s the place to be this February. We’ll be catching sailfish, dolphin and cobia with a few kingfish, wahoo and tuna in the mix.
