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
