Catching sailfish while nothing was biting aboard Hooked Up

Catching sailfish while nothing was biting aboard Hooked Up
December 30th, 2011

Today we started out fishing with Todd, Katelyn, Tim, Taylor and Tanner all from South Florida.
Once again I must admit fishing was slow not just for us but also for all the boats.
But all the same we set out our kites and suspended live baits from them crossed our fingers and hopped for the best.
As it turned out we were the lucky lotto winners today because a sailfish jumped on our left long kite bait and just like that we were Hooked Up.javascript:insert_image('

Taylor jumped in the chair and the fight was on. After a good 15 min he had his sail close to the boat and Captain Greg held the rod so they could get a photo of this 7-foot plus sail in the water when all of a sudden he took off like a rocket and the fight was on once again. This time Katelyn jumped in the chair trying to get this sail back to the boat. Than Tim jumped in and the whole family was helping. This fish was going nuts and as we finally got him next to the boat we seen why.

It turned out that this fish was not hooked at all it had the line wrapped around it's bill and was not happy about it. (LOL)
As we got him next to the boat again the line slid off and away he went but not until we got our photos.
Thanks again guys and it was pleasure fishing with you guys just like it's a pleasure shopping at Publix. (LOL) Talk to you soon Tim.

Hi my name is Taco and I run one of the best charter fishing boats down here in South Florida. WHY? Because Iíve been fishing the waters down here since 1969 and I started at the bottom and worked my way up the ladder. I know what it is like to read a web site and than once you get to boat things are not as you thought they would be. Not here I say it like it is. No surprises. Iíve got a 45 foot Hatteras with a big cock pit. Fully aircondishened and refrigerated. Big comfortable platform.
