November 22, 2015


The Thanksgiving holiday is fast upon us and the fishing could not be better. The first real cold front of the season came through and while it has the seas a little bumpy, the sailfishing has been awesome! The kite fishing has been the most productive using live goggleyes to tempt the sailfish. On nearly every trip so far this week, we have caught at least one sailfish, and their acrobatics have been unbelievable!


While trolling we have been catching kingfish, mahi-mahi and a few bonitos along, and outside the reef in 90-110 feet of water. The go-to fishing rig has been fresh bonito strips behind blue and pink sea witch feathers. We have been running these baits behind planers about 60-70 feet behind the boats and about 20 feet below the surface.

What An Adventure!

I never leave reviews, but we had such a good time, I wanted to share with others. Captain David and his guys are top notch, you can tell as soon as you pull up that you have booked a great trip. We went out with them in April 2015 and we were told this was one of the best months for fishing off South Florida. The captain decided to fly kites (amazing!) to dangle baits so that the fish can’t see the hooks. I have never seen this, but it was amazing to see them do it. Within a few minutes we had a first sailfish on and then another hit. A double header! We landed both fish and the day went on just like that. We were watching the baits dangle on the surface all day.  Other boats in the area were “trolling” and weren’t catching any. David said it was because the water was so clear that it was important to kite fish.  I highly recommend booking them.
