Dolphin, Tuna and sailfish

Welcome aboard the REEL BUSY and to our St. Lucie Inlet Fishing Report. Consecutive cold fronts the last few weeks has kept things mixed up delivering hit and miss catches but the sailfish are on the move and February’s looking good.

The dolphin fishing’s been inconsistent, one day it’s great and the next day it’s a struggle to catch a couple. Most of the dolphin we’ve been catching are 7 to 10 pounds with a couple about 20 . We’ve had our best dolphin action north of the inlet but our biggest dolphin have come south of the inlet off the loran tower.

There’s been a decent Blackfin Tuna bite about 16 miles north of the inlet near the Mulliphen. It’s been inconsistent but plentiful when they want to play the game.

The sailfish action’s been poor for most of January but there’s been allot more sails showing up the last week or so. The cold fronts have the sailfish on the move so any day can be an epic day and most days should deliver 3 to 5 opportunities.

Acres of sardines, threadfins and horn bellies should start showing up soon and that means packs of cobia as well.

Stuart Florida fishing should be excellent over the coming weeks so get out there and catch fish. Capt. Wayne Brodeur 772-341-6609 Reel Busy Charters




Kingfish and Dolphin, Just a Few Sails

Welcome aboard the REEL BUSY and to our St. Lucie Inlet Fishing Report. We’ve been catching kingfish and/or dolphin on all of fishing charters but it’s been a struggle to get 1 or 2 sailfish bites. The cold fronts have finally started pushing through and there’s been acres of bait showing up the last couple of days.

The sailfish won’t be far behind the bait and were hoping for a red hot sailfish bite reel soon. There’s allot of sailfish up the coast from Sebastian to Cape Canaveral pushing south and 40 degree temperatures will get them on the move.

The dolphin bites been decent to good on most days. The best bite was 8 to 12 miles north of the inlet last week and right out front the week before. The bites been moving around a bit but edges from 80 to 120′ of water and 180 to 220 feet of water have produced the most action for us.

There’s been plenty of kingfish action around most of the reefs and wrecks from 80 to 120 feet of water if you’re looking to bend the rods.

Sailfish, dolphin and kingfish will be providing most of the action offshore this month but we’ll also be catching tuna, wahoo and cobia.  Good Luck & Good Fishin’. Capt. Wayne , Reel Busy ChartersIMGP0028 IMGP0018 IMGP0023
