Sailfish Fishing in Palm Beach

I have spent the past two days sailfish fishing with a few of my repeat customers in Palm Beach on our 31′ Yellowfin Center Console. Goggle eyes, threadfins and pilchards were readily available for us both Monday and today. Yesterday (Monday), we ran to Lake Worth pier and set 6 baits and 2 flat lines. Within the first 30 minutes, Drew caught Sailfish #1 in 130 ft of water. We moved to 150 ft of water and waited for an hour before we saw a “flopper” (jumping Sailfish) in 300 ft of water. We quickly picked up and ran to where I thought they might be and before we could blink, Drew, Matt, Brian and Brandon were all hooked up. Four Sailfish on at once is exciting. After we caught all four Sailfish, we set back up and lost one before calling it a day.

Monday = 5 Sailfish

Tuesday morning was brutally cold; 37 degrees with a wind chill of 25 and steam coming off the water surface. Our fishing spot yesterday produced so we went back to the pier and set up in 130 ft of water. We missed a sailfish right away and within 45 minutes we hooked a triple header. Drew’s sailfish pulled the hook and fell off immediately. Matt and I fought ’til the end and caught both fish. We ran in to shallower water and set up in 110 ft.  Matt pitched a spinner rod and hooked a sailfish right away. Matt caught his fish and the rest of our spread went out. Twenty minutes later, Matt jumped off another sailfish and we called it a day catching 4 sailfish out of 8 bites.

Tuesday = 4 Sailfish

Tight Lines!

Awesome Trip!

I took my 3 kids out with Captain David and Crew for a day of fishing in Miami. Upon arriving we were greeted by a beautiful marina and the captain was ready to go. We had the opportunity to catch some bait and the mate through the cast net a few times while my kids helped load them into the baitwell. We were fishing within 10 minutes and the action was great. I was just happy to share this with my kids, but Captain David went beyond my expectations. I highly recommend you book Lady Pamela. We will be back!
