Welcome aboard the Reel Busy and to our St. Lucie Inlet Fishing Report. We’ve been bouncing back for forth with our Stuart Florida Fishing Charters and Bahamas Fishing Adventures to Grand Cay Bahamas.
On the Stuart side we’ve been catching sailfish, dolphin, tuna, kingfish, bonito, amberjacks, cobia, sharks and goliath grouper.
The blackfin tuna never really stacked up on the hill like they usually do but we’re catching 7 to 10 on most days. Most of the blackfins are football size of 4 to 6 pounds but there’s a few 8 to 12 pound tuna in the mix.
The sailfish bite slowed a bit before picking back up last week. There’s plenty of live bait around and it’s your best bet this time of year if you’re looking to catch a few sailfish. We’ve had our best action east/southeast of the inlet from 80 to 160 feet of water but sailfish are showing up around all the Stuart Florida Wrecks and Reefs.
The dolphin fishing continues to be hit and miss but there’s been a fair to good dolphin bite from 400 to 800 feet of water on most days. There’s been a few scattered dolphin closer to shore but the best dolphin bites been 10 to 20 miles offshore.
Kingfish and bonito are abundant around the reefs and wreck with amberjack and cobia in the mix.
On the Bahamas side we’ve been catching tuna, snapper and grouper. The tuna bites been good. We’re catching blackfin and skipjack tuna on every trip and yellowfin tuna on most of our trips. On the second day of our 3 day Bahamas Fishing Adventures we’ve been beating up mutton snapper from 10 to 20 pounds.
Light tackle fishing for muttons on the Bahama Bank is a must for all mutton enthusiasts. We’re fishing 10 to 20 feet of water so the bull dogging runs of the muttons are awesome. Call Capt. Wayne and customize your Bahamas Fishing Adventure today 772-341-6609.
