November Offshore Report 

Northeast winds and cooler temperatures are moving down bringing the Sailfish with them. Locating the fish proves to be easy as the discharge from Lake O continues.

Simply run out to the cooler change and start trolling ballyhoo or drifting live baits. With winds over 15 knots, it’s a great time to kite fish.

During the last full moon, large schools of smaller dolphin (mahi-mahi) were abundant around every price of floating debris we encountered. Please observe the 20″ fork length limit as we did catch plenty of short fish.

The full moon also brought in a strong snapper bite with two limits on lane snappers. Target isolated reef patches in 100 to 50 feet.

Small pieces of squid with a 6/0 circle hook was my preferred method. As the northeast winds continue now is the time to book that sailfish trip you have been waiting for.

Stuart, Florida has been a great place to explore an offshore or deep-sea fishing trip. You have the chance to catch an abundance of species right outside the inlet. You never know what you will catch on your fishing trip. Our local experts will work hard to put you on the best fish possible!
