Hello Fish Fans, Happy New Year and welcome aboard the Reel Busy. Heavy winds and sporty seas associated with the cold fronts has limited our trips but the catching has been excellent in-between the fronts.
Packs of mahi-mahi are providing most of the action. Most of the mahi-mahi we’re catching are 7 to 10 pounds with a few 12 to 18 pounds in the mix.
The sailfish bites been good as of late but not red hot. We’re getting 2 or 3 sailfish bites on most days but the best it yet to come.
Sailfish, mahi-mahi and kingfish will continue to provide most of the action with a few blackfin tuna and wahoo in the mix.
The wind and seas are settling this weekend and conditions are looking great next week. We’ll be catching fish and you can too just give us a call and Let’s Go Catch’m.

Hello Fish Fans, Welcome aboard the Reel Busy and to our St. Lucie Inlet Fishing Report. The offshore fishing was excellent this week and hope to see more of the same this month.
The dolphin bites been great and they’re coming through in packs tearing it up. We had a some quiet time yesterday but ended up with a dozen dolphin from 7 to 17 pounds and a sailfish.
The sailfish are migrating through so any day can be a great day. On most days you can expect at least a couple sailfish bites but cross paths with a pack or two the doubles and triples add up fast.
The blackfin tuna have been hit and miss but most of the blackfins we’ve been catching have been 15 to 25 pounds. Always nice to add a couple of tunas to a fish box full of dolphin.
There’s been a few kingfish around the reefs and wrecks but not stacked up yet as they will be in the next couple of weeks.
Now’s the time to get hooked up with Reel Busy Charters. Calm seas, sunny skies and the Catching is good, you gonna love it. Call or Text Capt. Wayne 772-341-6609 reelbusycharters.com
Hello fish Fans, Welcome aboard the Reel Busy and to our Stuart Florida Fishing Report. Sailfish and Mahi are the main attraction right now and we’re also catching tuna, kingfish and wahoo.
The summer sailfish bite has been excellent on most days for the last few weeks. We’ve been catching 3 to 5 sailfish on most of our sailfish charters and caught 9 a couple days ago. The sailfish bite should continue to be good to excellent so give us a call and Let’s Go Catch’m.
The dolphin / mahi mahi fishing has been hit and miss. They’ve been scattered about like the weeds and scattered weeds has made for challenging to fish. We fished a bit further offshore in the deeper waters of the gulfstream a few days ago and caught 25 dolphin, jumping off another dozen. The best dolphin bite on most days will be in the deeper waters of the gulfstream from 15 to 25 miles offshore.
We’ve been catching a few blackfin tuna of 15 to 25 pounds but they’ve been scattered about. Kingfish and false albacore are abundant on the reef line providing some action in-between the sailfish bites. Now’s a great time to get hooked up with Reel Busy Charters and catch fish. Give us a call and Let’s Go Catch’m.
I’ll be back reel soon with another fishing report from Stuart Florida, Sailfish Ca[ital of the World. Catch you later, Captain Wayne 772-341-6609
Hello Fish Fans, Welcome aboard the REEL BUSY and to our St. Lucie Inlet Offshore Fishing Report. The last few weeks has been as unpredictable as the weather report. The sailfish, dolphin and tuna have turned on and off from day to day and taking turns playing the game.
The sailfish were scattered about as expected and starting to show up for the summer bite a few weeks ago. The sailfish bite turned on last week should be good to excellent on most days through July. The bites been shallow and the sailfish have been plentiful so enjoy the calmer seas of summer and the summer sailfish bite.
The blackfin tuna that usually stack up on Push Button Hill in April have finally arrived so I thought. I’ve been checking the hill for blackfins about once a week for weeks with very little action. We had an excellent blackfin bite on the hill last week but it shut down over the weekend. On Friday we caught a few blackfins before catching a wahoo and watching a white marlin tearing them up. The bite shut down and they moved off the hill but they’ll be back reel soon.
The dolphin bite has been good, excellent and non-existent the last few weeks. We’ve had days with so much weed scattered about that finding fishable water and dolphin was a challenge. We’ve also had days the weed lines were formed up with large patches and dolphin are plentiful. For the most part the best dolphin bite has been shallow from 80′ to 150′ of water with school size dolphin of 4 to 8 pounds.
There’s been plenty of kingfish, bonito and amberjack to bend the rods around the reefs and wrecks when the sailfish, dolphin and tuna don’t want to play the game.

Hello Fish Fans, It’s about a month later than normal but the Dolphin Bite is finally here. Covid-19 resulted in April cancellations and May started out hit and miss. It’s great to see an excellent dolphin bite and things slowly getting back to normal.
Had a great time on a 3/4 day charter Saturday with 4 dolphin of 20 to 30 pounds and a handful of 5 to 10 pound dolphin. Had a good dolphin bite again yesterday on a 1/2 day charter with 5 to 10 pound dolphin but only one 20 pounder in the box. The dolphin bite should be excellent again this week and we’ve got a couple days open so give us a call and Let’s Go Catch’m.
The blackfin tuna haven’t shown up in numbers yet but most of the blackfins have been 15 to 25 pounds. There’s been a few blackfins pushing well over 30 pounds and that’s a great bonus to a box of dolphin filets.
The kingfish bite has been excellent from Jensen Beach to Jupiter Inlet around all the reefs and wrecks. There’s an abundance of 20 to 30 pound kings with a few pushing into the 40′s. Kingfish isn’t one of our preferred targeted species but you gotta love it when they sky 10 to 20 feet in the air attacking the spread.
It’s great to be back on a CABO Fishing Machine. This 2009 40′ CABO EXPRESS is powered with a pair of Caterpillar C-12′s and the SEAKEEPER makes offshore fishing unbelievably comfortable. Not only is new REEL BUSY the fastest and best riding express charter boat in Stuart it’s a true fishing machine with all the comforts of home. Sat. TV, AC inside and out and a large cockpit with fighting chair for those who rather sit than stand up while fighting fish.
The dolphin bite is on so give us a call and get hooked up with Reel Busy Charters, you’ll be glad you did. I’ll be back in a week or so with another St. Lucie Inlet Fishing Report. Catch you later, Capt. Wayne 772-341-6609 www.reelbusycharters.com
