Welcome aboard the REEL BUSY and our St. Lucie Inlet fishing Report. It was a good week of fishing off the coast of Stuart last week and the best is yet to come.
Dolphin fishing wasn’t red hot but there was a steady pick of lifters and small gaffers scattered about with a few 15 to 25 pound dolphin in the mix. We had most of our dolphin bites in 80 to 180 feet of water on most days and the mid 200’s on the others. There’ll be allot of big dolphin caught over the 4 to 6 weeks so get out there and catch’m.
Blackfin Tuna are schooling on and around Push Button Hill as they do this time of year. Some of these schools will consist of 2 to 4 pound tunas, others will be 5 to 8 pound tunas and there’s always a few 10 to 15 pound tunas lurking around if you get lucky.
Sailfish may not be the main attraction this time of year but there’s a few around and they’re eager to play the game. The sailfish bite is fast and aggressive this time of year and always a nice bonus to a box full of tuna and/or dolphin.
Bull Sharks and Cobia provided plenty of action for most of the week on the sand pile. The bull sharks can make it challenging to get a big cobia to the boat but we caught as many cobia off the sharks as we fed to them.
