Stuart FL. Tuna Fishing

2012-07-02_14-45-57_991The Tuna fishing is excellent during the spring and summer months on our Stuart Florida Fishing Charters and you’ll be catching Blackfin Tuna, Skip-Jack Tuna and Yellowfin Tuna. The Blackfin Tuna stack up on a ridge just 10 miles off shore beginning in March and continue on into the summer months of June & July. The Blackfin Tuna will range in size from 5 to 10 pounds with a few 15 to 20 pound Blackfin Tuna in the mix. The Blackfin Tuna tend to be larger on the ridge during the springtime with mostly football size tuna of 3 to 5 pounds by summertime.

The Skip-Jack Tuna are abundant during the months of April, May and June in the deeper waters of the gulfstream 15 to 20 miles offshore. The Skip-Jack Tuna vary in size from 10 to 20 pounds and are always pushing rapidly to the south with packs of Tuna birds in tow. The Yellowfin Tuna fishing charter is a 65 to 75 mile ride and a 12 to 14 hour day designed for the fish-head. We’ll be fishing the east side of the gulfstream north of the Bahamas bank catching 35 to 75  pound Yellowfin Tuna with big Blackfin and Skip-Jack Tuna in the mix. The Yellowfin Tuna start showing up in April but May, June and July are the top 3 months for the Yellowfin Tuna Fishing Charters.

The Summer months are the best time of year to take advantage of our Bahamas 3 day fishing charters catching Tunas, Marlin, Dolphin and deep water snapper a & grouper. The Blackfin Tuna on the 10 mile ridge is one of our most popular Stuart Florida Fishing Charters during the spring and summer months because there’s plenty of action and we usually catch a few Dolphin while Tuna Fishing. Thanks for considering Reel Busy Charters and we look forward to taking you on your next Stuart Florida Fishing Charter.
