Sailfish Tournament Palm Beach

The Lady Pamela III drift boat was out on a Friday night anchor trip and the snapper action was nonstop. The fish started biting as soon as the chum hit the water. Our anglers were keeping the rods bent, bringing in 75 assorted snappers, including yellowtails, mangroves, and some nice muttons.

Captain David was busy Friday and Saturday, participating with the Advanced Roofing fishing team in the “Operation Sailfish” tournament held at Sailfish Marina, in Palm Beach. A portion of the proceeds from Operation Sailfish will be devoted to the military based charity, Operation Homefront. This four-star rated nonprofit organization provides emergency financial aid and other assistance to the families or our service members and wounded warriors. The Advanced Roofing Boat caught and released 23 sailfish during the tournament, taking home 1st place. Looks like David helped Advanced roofing off to a good start!

Operation Sailfish is the first leg of the three part Sailfish Tournament “Quest for the Crest” presented by Bluewater Movements. The event will brings together more than 50 elite sailfishing teams vying for an estimated prize purse of $500,000.


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.
