2013 Sailfish Season Highlights

Miami Sailfish caught while kitefishing off Key Biscayne

Miami Sailfishing has been in full swing the last few weeks. While we’ve seen several slow days, when the current is strong…so is the bite. Bait has been plentiful and there are plenty of sailfish still moving through the area.  Cold fronts continue to push through the  South Florida area and most boats are catching fish anywhere from Fowey Rocks to the Double Diamonds.  Capt. Todd has been quick with the camera so far this year, producing several of the most epic pictures to date.  With the Miami BillFish Tournament just one week away, I figured now would be a good time to share some of our favorite sailfish pictures of 2013.

As I said before, the sailfish bite depends strongly on the current, but we’re hoping conditions improve in the next few days. As we approach the beginning of April, the sailfish should continue to get better as new cold fronts arrive weekly. Our preparations for the Miami Billfish Tournament are underway and we’re really looking forward to taking part in this year’s festivities. If you’re interested in booking a miami sailfish charter, please give us a call as our calendar is filling up for the month of April – and be sure to look for my latest article in Coastal Angler Magazine which should arrive in the next week!
