Dolphin, Kingfish and Tuna

Hello Fish Fans and welcome aboard the REEL BUSY.  The wind laid down for a week or so and we’ve been catching dolphin, kingfish, tuna and sailfish.KIMG0633_01

The dolphin bite was good to excellent for most of the week catching a dozen one day and 13 the next. Most of the dolphin have been small with a few 8 to 12 pound gaffers in the mix. The bite went from hot to not on Sunday and more of the same on Monday. We expect to have a good to excellent dolphin bite again as the wind and seas settle back down next week. KIMG0637_02

The sailfish bite slowed to a crawl and it’s been just a pick for a week or two now. There’ll continue to be a few sailfish hanging around and catching 1 or 2 should be doable on most days. KIMG0643_02

Blackfin tuna and skipjack tuna have started to arrive on the current edge of the gulfstream and push button hill. Most of the blackfins we’ve been catching are 7 to 10 pounds but there’ll be 15 to 25 pound blackfins in the mix as we transition into springtime.KIMG0644_01

Small kingfish have moved onto the reefs and wrecks and they’re eager to play the game. Most of the kingfish right now are 5 to 10 pounds. The larger kingfish of 20 to 40 pounds will start showing up as we transition into spring.

We’ve yet to catch our first wahoo of the year but there’s 1 or 2 caught by somebody on most days. The cobia haven’t showed up in numbers yet but they’re on their way.

Now’s a great time to get hooked up with Reel Busy Charters for a Stuart Florida Fishing Charter.  Reserve your dates today  for a Bahamas Fishing Adventure during the spring and summer months. Call or text Capt. Wayne 772-341-6609 or check us out at

More Dolphin, Still Catchin’ Sails

Hello Fish Fans, Welcome aboard the REEL BUSY and to our St. Lucie Inlet Fishing report. Sailfish and dolphin have been providing most of the action offshore with kingfish and bonito in the mix. There’s been a few wahoo scattered about and an occasional blackfin tuna.

Sailfish, dolphin and kingfish will continue to play the game as we move towards spring. Blackfin tuna and wahoo will be more plentiful in the coming weeks and the cobia will show up on the reefs and wrecks as well. KIMG0616_02

It’s a great time of year for Stuart Florida Fishing so get hooked up with Reel Busy Charters or your favorite charter boat and catch some fish. The conditions look great this week and we’ve got a couple days open. Catch you later, Capt. Wayne 772-341-6609
