Sailfish Tournaments

This weekend my father Peter and I, along with friends Andrew, Kirk, Russ, Billy, Brian and Jackie, fished the No Rules Sailfish Tournament out of Miami Beach. The “No Rules Sailfish Tournament” started January of 2012 as a small event to have some friends get together and fish against each other simply for bragging rights. It’s an extremely fun event, unlike any of the other sailfish tournaments around. It is an event where fishermen of every skill level can go out and experience what tournament fishing is all about. In 2012 the Lady Pamela II sportfishing team won the tournament with 10 releases. Last year the Lady Pamela II team took 3rd place with 7 releases.

No Rules Sailfish Tournament

This year we headed south from Fort Lauderdale with 17 dozen live baits and fished all day on Saturday off Miami. Our anglers brought in four out eight sailfish hookups, ending up tied for second place for 2014. A good friend of ours puts on this tournament and he did a great job, with 20 boats participating this year.

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.
