Spring Kingfish and Sailfish
Sailfish have been hot this winter. We’ve been averaging a few sails per day with 15 on our best day so far this season. Recently the big kingfish have been around as well. During the last week we landed a 48 pound kingfish as well as 50 pound kingfish during the early morning kite bite on the local wrecks. The best thing about kite fishing is that you never know what your next bite will be.
We have been taking advantage of calmer weather by deep dropping and wreck fishing when there isn’t enough wind for the kites. Wreck fishing is great this time of year with no shortage of amberjack, sharks, and the occasional big grouper. Unfortunately the grouper are still out of season and need to be released but they open back up on May 1st.
Our bait situation has gotten better, the bait has been holding better in the pens and staying lively for our trips. Bait fishing has been hit or miss but it always helps to try and catch some fresh ones. Some days we notice they have been harder to find or just not around on the markers but one thing is for sure the Ballyhoo have been around in large groups.
Be sure to check out our latest video on YouTube! In this video we take out our clients from Switzerland who have been in search of a sailfish! This video will show you how we work aboard the boat during our trips and highlighting some tips to searching for fish from our captain. Stay tuned for our upcoming episodes!
