stuart FL Fishing Report
Sailfishing has been hit or miss this week. We caught a few dolphin at the 150′ mark and saw a ton of bonita. Slow trolling live bait is your best bet for August. When live bait becomes harder to acquire, so take advantage while you can. Bottom fishing remains steady for large amberjacks, snapper, cobia, triggerfish, torros, & kingfish. Kingfish can also be taken using surface rods, free lining live or dead sardines while bottom fishing for added diversity to you fix box catch.
This week has been crazy with Sailfish. Trolling live baits and kite fishing has proven to be the most effective. We are seeing most of the action in the 80′ out to Pushbutton Hill. Look for weedlines and color changes and work the edges. Reef fishing has been amazing for jacks and snapper. Live baits on the bottom is always to ticket to target bigger fish.
