Hello Fish Fans, The fishing’s been good off the coast of Stuart Florida and the Bahamas. Sailfish, dolphin and tuna are providing the action off the coast of Stuart.
The blackfin tuna that stack up on Push Button Hill finally showed up in June. They’re all footballs from 4 to 8 pounds but it’s always nice to put a few fish in the box before we head out to the deeper waters of the gulfstream for dolphin.
There’s been a few dolphin closer to shore but we’ve had our best bite 15 to 20 miles offshore in 650 to 850 feet of water. There’s allot more dolphin out there this time of year. Most of the dolphin are schooling size of 4 to 7 pounds but there’s a few gaffers in the mix.
On the Bahamas side we’ve had an excellent Blackfin Tuna bite. They’re stacked up on both sides of the corner and we caught blackfins up to 28 pounds so far this year. The temperature breaks have been well north of the Bahama Bank so we haven’t been chasing yellowfins. Hopefully next weekend we’ll find closer temperature breaks and cash in on the yellowfin tuna. The deep dropping and reef fishing has been excellent as usual on the Bahama Bank. Queen Snapper, Yellow Eye snapper and grouper every night for dinner is the norm on a Bahamas Fishing Adventure.
We pick up our new fishing machine on Monday and I can’t wait to take you fishing on THE BOUNTY. Our 42′ Viking Express is bigger, faster and has Seakeeper stabilization for maximum comfort.
