Hello Fish Fans and welcome to our St. Lucie Inlet Fishing Report. We we’re lucky enough to get offshore a few times last week and caught sailfish, dolphin, kingfish, tuna and wahoo. The wind and seas got all fired up last weekend and it’s been a bit too sporty for fishing since. The inlet has been impassable the last couple of days with 8 to 12 foot swells breaking across the mouth of the inlet. Hope to get back out this weekend to catch some fish.
There’s been a few sailfish scattered about and we’re getting 1 or 2 sailfish bites on most days. As the bait starts finding it’s way back to the reefs and wrecks there’ll be more sailfish eager to play the game.
The dolphin bite slowed to a crawl last week as this last front approached and 2 of the dolphin we caught were mini dolphin. Most of the dolphin have been 5 to 10 pounds and there’s been a few 20 to 30 pound dolphin in the mix. Should be a good dolphin bite when the wind and seas settle back down.
The blackfin tuna have started showing up from the loran tower ledge to push button hill. Most of the blackfins are 5 to 10 pounds but we always catch a few pushing 20 pounds during the spring.
There’s been a few wahoo scattered about from the loran tower ledge to the 8 mile reef. We caught one on the hill and one off the loran tower last week. Now’s the time for Stuart Florida Wahoo Fishing so put out some wire and go catch’m.
Springtime fishing off the coast of Stuart Fl. is good to excellent on most days so get hooked up with Reel Busy Charters and catch fish. Call Capt. Wayne 772-341-6609 or www.reelbusycharters.com
