Dolphin for Dinner and Dancing with Sailfish

Hello Fish Fans, Stuart Florida is the Sailfish Capital of the World and now’s the time to get hooked up with Reel Busy Charters. Sailfish and Dolphin are migrating down the southeast coast of Florida for the winter months and they’re eager to play the game.

Sailfish is the main attraction this time of year for most anglers and there’s no better place to be than Stuart Florida. Packs of sailfish are showing up and the only thing more awesome than a fired up sailfish on the end of the line is a double or triple hookup. The smaller pups passed through in November and most of the sailfish now are 35 to 55 pounds. We’re deploying 2 dredges this time of year behind the boat and when a pack of sailfish move into the spread they’re fired up and eager to play the game. Some days we’ll only catch one or two but on most days this time of year we’ll catch and release 3 to 5 sailfish a day. Double digit sailfish releases are always possible this time of year but you won’t know if you don’t go.

The dolphin or mahi mahi are plentiful this time of year and most of them are 5 to 15 pounds. We’ll have a few days with double digits but most days we’re catching 5 to 8 dolphin of 8 to 12 pounds so there’s plenty of filets for dinner and the freezer.

On most days there’ll be dolphin for dinner and we’ll dance a few sailfish but there’s a few kingfish, tuna and wahoo scattered about as well. Call Capt. Wayne Brodeur for a great day on the water catching fish. 772-341-6609 Check out our new website at
