Sailfish

We’ve had some decent action out of Stuart, FL. the last few fishing charters seeing at least 3-4 Sailfish a trip as well as some good size Dolphin and Blackfin Tuna around to 20-25 lbs. Also starting to see a lot of bait moving in to the area which can really kick the fishing in to high gear in the next few weeks!

Hit or Miss

The last couple weeks of charter fishing out of Stuart FL. has been hit or miss. One day we have great dolphin action with some nice size fish from 15-30 lbs. and the next day only catching a few small fish. Still seeing a few sailfish around as well. Capt. John has been having decent action in the river with Snook, Jacks, Bluefish and some Pompano. The weather has been nice allowing us to get out most days.

Mixed Bags

The last few fishing charters has had a mixed bag, catching some sailfish here and there and some nice cobia as well as a few small dolphin each trip to 10lbs. The dolphin fishing should just keep getting better as we move further in to our spring season.

Mahi Mahi

We’ve started to see some larger Dolphin/Mahi Mahi showing up out of Stuart FL. still hit or miss on the bigger fish. Bill and his grand kids in for spring break had a good day catching some nice size Dolphin from 15-30 lbs. Then we bounced around on a couple inshore wrecks looking for a Cobia only to catch some small Jacks and fought a large Bull Shark getting him up a couple times we threw a few jigs but no Cobia following him. Still ended up being a great day on the water!

Mahi and Sailfish

Our last few trips have seen a mix of sailfish and dolphin out of Stuart, FL. Yesterdays trip with Jon and the guys from Moorehaven had fast and furious dolphin action for a few hours in the morning! As the day progressed and more boats arrived to the area fishing slowed down but the guys had plenty of fish to bring home by then. The day before we had the Doan charter out for a full day with a mix of trolling and live baiting which we manage to put some nice dolphin in the box to 15 lbs. and catch Ian his first sailfish. Spring yields some of the best charter fishing Stuart FL. has to offer!

Sailfish Action

From the “Bill Chaser” – Had Robert and Josh drive 3 1/2 hours over to Stuart FL.  From the West Coast to do a little deep sea fishing.  Both caught their first Sailfish, we moved inshore and our luck ran out pulled off two nice Cobia and fought a large Bull Shark for 30 min. or so before he broke off. We’ve been having some decent Sailfish action with some Dolphin/Mahi mixed in.
