Dirty Water Can Throw A Wrench In The Sailfish Bite
As everyone likely now knows, Kitefishing is the best way to catch Sailfish and a multitude of other species in our area. So, that's what we do!
If you've read our last article, I talked about the Mahis moving in close this time of year making them an extremely common bi-catch while Sailfishing. This has been true, but fishing has been pretty tough all around.
We've had a massive amount of dirty water from Ft. Pierce to Miami believed to be caused by the dumping of water of out of Lake Okeechobee. This has made Sailfishing very tough because Sails tend to gravitate to the most clean water possible. Finding that super bluish/purple water is likely a sign of a good day. No chance for that lately.
NOW, it's not ALL bad. We are still finding a few sails and our close friend just won the Dust Em Off Sailfishing tournament with 7 releases on the Double Diamond out of Hillsboro inlet. Definitely some Mahis mixed in as well. The bummer about all of this is that it's just harder to find the Sails and get them to see your baits.
We've got our fingers crossed that this water cleans up, but it's not looking too good right now.
