This upcoming sailfish season should be one of the best seen here in years. Judging by early catches from the beginning of November, sailfish are already arriving in Broward County in large numbers. We have been hooking up on almost every trip since the beginning of November. As each new cold front arrives, the numbers of  hungry spindlebeaks swimming along Fort Lauderdale’s coastline will be ever increasing. There is no greater thrill than when a sailfish inhales a frisky live bait and launches himself airborne for a series of acrobatic leaps across the sea. When caught on light spinning tackle we often need to start up the boat and pursue the jumping fish before he spools all of our line from the reel. If you would like a chance to experience this thrill of a lifetime, choose a day during the next three months and come on down. Great action on dolphin (mahi-mahi) was also experienced this fall as well, and should continue into the winter. These dolphin normally found further from shore will be in close where the sailfish are caught during the winter months. Kingfish our old standby will provide us action while waiting for the sailfish bites. We have been having fun on the way out the inlet lately catching spanish mackerel as we troll by the rock jetty. These  fish are fun to catch and are good eating as well. This can be plan B when conditions offshore can’t be tolerated.
