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
