Sailfish Season is Here

Capt. Freddie David
February 2, 2017
Haulover Inlet - Saltwater Fishing Report

The weather in South Florida has finally cooled off and the sailfish have arrived. Sailfish generally migrate south after a cold front slides by us. The weather has stabilized with cloudless sunny days and the outside temperatures being in the low 70's. Sailfish are some of the fastest fish in the ocean and can reach speeds up to 70 mph. They are high jumpers and acrobatic swimmers.

We have been averaging between 2-4 sailfish per day. When there are good conditions up to 8-10 bites per day. Sailfishing has been slow the past few years but we are starting to see them on a consistent basis recently. This is a good sign that they are here and most likely more on the way.

Asides from the sailfish we have been catching nice kingfish on the reef with some big Spanish mackerel mixed in. We target these with live bait on light spinning tackle. Bottom fishing has been fairly active with yellowtail snappers, trigger fish, amberjacks, and mutton snappers. With the right current and wind direction you can do pretty well on the bottom if you put your time in.

I have made several Bahama trips the past few weeks. We have been catching wahoo, mahi, barracudas, horse eye jacks, queen snapper, yelloweye snapper, and some big sharks. There are a lot of different species to target from light tackle to heavy tackle depending on what your taste is.

I still have some dates left in mid-February. If you would like to go and target these game fish please pick up the phone and call me or shoot me an email.
