Sight casting live ballyhoo to hungry sailfish

Now is the time that we find sailfish chasing schools of baitfish called ballyhoo in shallow water. Often times we will see these baitfish shower in an explosion when the school is being pursued by a sailfish. Typically this occurs over the shallow reefs in 40′- 100′ of water. These explosions on the waters surface provide us with the oppertunity to sight cast a live ballyhoo to the hungry sailfish. This is when the fun begins as there is nothing more exciting than hooking up to a jumping, tailwalking sailfish! Book a trip now while the action is hot!
