Florida Sailfish on Fire!
Been a while! Have been so busy with everything that I haven't fished for almost 3 weeks. Been hearing the sailfish have been going off last week in Miami, so Friday I finally got to get out. I didn't even put a line in the water until 5:30pm, 5 minutes drifting had a sail on!
Got him to the boat and released him. Drifted another hour and lost 1 more sail and called it an evening.
I used buster 20lb mono with 60lb regular leader. He ate a ballyhoo on a free line.

We headed offshore to go sailfish, as soon as we got out their we noticed there was no current at all so game plan changed to hit the wrecks.
Rigged up a big rod with about 15 feet of Bullbuster 80lb leader with a 6/0 hook. Our bait was sardines or ballyhoo. We got to the wreck and dropped the baits, we had few hits than finally a good strike. I am hooked up with a fish that fought almost the entire way up to the surface. READ MORE
Almost time to pack it in, last second bite provides a sailfish.
About 4pm rolled around, than we said a few more minutes. Not long after, one of the flats goes off, about 15 seconds later it showed itself being a sailfish. After a 45 minute fight we finally got the fish to the boat. He was released quickly! He was caught on 20lb Bullbuster mono with 60lb Bullbuster regular leader! READ MORE
