South Florida – Winter is upon us, so Sailfish Season must be in full swing. Over the past week, the only warm spot in the continental U.S. was the Sunshine State. From Stuart all the way down to Miami, the Sailfish are balling baits along the reefs and the fleet is getting after them.
During Operation Sailfish out of Palm Beach, we saw 44 Boats release 369 Sailfish over 2-Days, with the Top Boat, Miss Annie releasing 17 Sailfish. Get Lit, Qualifier and Jichi all released 15. Up in Stuart, we saw 212 Sailfish released in the Stuart Sailfish Club Light Tackle Tournament, with the Top Boat, Challenge releasing 24 over the 3-Day tournament. Canyon Lady finished 2nd with 18 Sailfish released.
There have been plenty of double digit Sailfish days with Showtime releasing 10 out of Stuart, Challenge releasing 11 and J Hook also with 11. Down off Palm Beach, Fish On released 10 Sailfish and Propayroll released 11.
This is just the start of the season, so we should expect to see some great fishing coming up with tons of Tournaments in January.
