People come from all over the world to catch one of these acrobatic fish. Once hooked, the sailfish like to jump on the surface from wave to wave to try to shake the hook.
Bringing in a sailfish and take some finesse and skill, but that’s where the Good Hit Crew comes into play. We help the angler through long fights and extreme battles.
As winter approaches, Sailfish will migrate South following schools of bait. The best Sailfish action would start in November and go all the way through May. The best conditions would have to be Northeast wind, with North Current.
The preferred method for Sailfishing in South Florida is Kitefishing. We use live Goggle eyes, Mullet, Ballyhoo,Pichards, and Threadfin Herring for Sailfishing. Some on the kite on the kite, others on flat lines with spinning rods.
The reason kite fishing is so exciting is because you see most of the fish before they actual hit the line. A sailfish would look like a large trash bags below the live bait, then your live bait will be extremely frantic because he sees the large Preator approaching. Quickly you will see a bill arise from water and your bait will be circled. The live bait instantly disappears and the line will slowly go out. When the fish feels the hook he will move very quickly. He will jump all over the surface, this is where they get the name tail walker.
Sailfish can also be targeted without kites. The use of live baits either drifted or slow trolled can provide plenty of sailfish action as well.
Most people who charter us are local anglers or world travelers, who will target strictly Sailfish. The chances of catching a sailfish during “sailfish season” are very good. This can be the first billfish for many anglers and most anglers will choose to have that sailfish mounted. The beauty of that is that you no longer have to kill a sailfish to have a mount made. A measurement of the total length is the only thing needed.
