Sailfish

Sailfish Deep Sea Sport Fishing Charter
Palm Beach offshore sport fishing is known worldwide for both its variety and its close proximity to the famous SAILFISH ALLEY, where multiple catches of sailfish are common during the winter months.

Sailfish are the prime big game fish of the area and can be caught year round, they are the fastest fish in the ocean and are capable of 50 mph burst of speed.

The average sailfish is about 40 pounds but larger ones, in the 60 pound range, have been caught.

When the wind permits a fishing kite is flown from a special kite rod. Three release clips are attached to the kite line and the line from each fishing rod is then secured in a kite line clip. Each fishing rod line has a goggle eye (the preferred live bait) attached, which is bridled to the hook with a rigging needle and a special rubber band. Upon getting a bite, the fishing line pops out of the kite clip and the angler cranks the line to come tight on the fish…and the show is on. If hooked up to a sailfish, the fight is usually spectacular with many jumps and plenty of heart pounding excitement. Once at the boat, it is picture time. Since sailfish are such gallant fighters and not such good eating, they are always released at boat side to fight another day. If a trophy mount is desired a fiberglass replica can be produced.
