One of our most common questions we get is " When is the best time to book a Sailfish Trip?" and the answer to that is... whenever you like. We are lucky enough to catch Sailfish year round here in South Florida. We have a migration of Sailfish that move down from the north in the Fall and Winter months and we have what I like to call "local" Sailfish that stay here year round. The locals are going to be your bigger Sailfish that hang around the reefs and feed non stop. Sailfish is one of our most common catches during an offshore trip and one of the most fun to catch off the kayak.
We get Wahoo up to 90lbs here in South Florida. Our best chance at Wahoo is July - October and the month of February. Unfortunately these fish tend to elude us due to their speed and leave us with cut offs above the our wire leader and lots of donated vertical jigs. We do however get lucky and land some these beautiful and tasty fish.
Blackfin Tuna & Yellowfin Tuna
Blackfin Tuna can be caught year round but the the best time of year to target them are Spring and Fall. Vertical jigging is the preferred method in catching them in large numbers but the jumbo's (20lbs - 40lbs) can't resist a nice live bait such as Blue Runner or Goggle Eye. Yellowfin Tuna migrate along our coast each year and they can reach over a 100lbs. Our best weighed in at 37.5lbs!
Mahi Mahi or Dorado
Mahi Mahi or Dorado are caught primarily In Fall, Spring and Early summer. Average size running about 8lbs, but in early spring and fall larger mahi in the 20, 30 and even 40lb class are caught in our waters!
King Mackerel are caught year round here in South Florida and are known to reach over 50lbs
Inshore Catches – Tarpon, Snook, Jacks, Redfish, Trout
We have a great Inshore fishery here in South Florida. We catch Tarpon in the 100lb class and our Snook are known to get well over 40 inches. Oh yeah.. Monster Jacks stalk the area and can weigh up to 40lbs. Also mixed in are Redfish and Trout. This trip is great for anglers of all skill levels.
Freshwater – Peacock Bass & Clown Knife Fish
Our freshwater fishery often gets over looked by our saltwater fishery. Our lakes and back canals produce some monster Peacock Bass and Clown Knife fish. Both fish can only be caught here in South Florida,
