Cold Weather= Hot Sailfishing

South Florida & Florida Keys – The wind picks up, the air temperature drops and the sailfish head south. The same cold fronts that most people hate, start to push the sailfish farther into southern Florida, which means the bite is on….And man, is it ever ON. There have been plenty of reports of 4-5 fish days, but a few Tournaments really showed us what is to come this season.

Palm Beach Sailfish Classic – There were 153 Sailfish released on 11 boats on two days of fishing. That is just under 14 Fish average per boat for the tournament.
