The sailfish bite was pretty good today, each of our sportfishing charter boats landed nice sailfish. I was out on a half day fishing charter aboard the Out of the Blue. We started off trolling the reef to see what was going on. Not much action to begin with so I went right over to the shipwreck to get some action. We dropped a live blue runner to the bottom and got a quick hookup. It ended up being about a 50 pound amberjack. Nice fish to start the day with. We tried a few more drops, but no other bites. So we went back on the troll. I spotted some flying fish getting showered on the surface just inside of me, so I did a turn to go over by them. As soon as we got close, the right planer bait gets hit and starts peeling off drag. A few seconds later, I see that it’s a sailfish when the fish starts tailwalking on the surface. We caught the fish, got a quick photo and turned him loose. We trolled for another hour and caught a few small kingfish, cero mackerel and a little shadow jack. Capt Paul, my dad, also caught a sailfish today on the afternoon trip, as well as some nice almaco jacks and a couple groupers around the wrecks. Capt Rod, my brother, caught a sailfish today as well, trolling offshore. He went on a daytime swordfishing trip today. No swordfish, but he caught a sailfish and some nice mahi-mahi while he was out there. Pretty decent catches today on our sportfishing boats.
