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.
