Sailfish Week what a blast


This week has been a blast the east bound current moved in and so did the sailfish. My clients and I have had a blast sight fishing for sailfish. Watching them swim down sea and casting to them is a thrill. Watching them jump and run is just amasing

God I love My job.

The Blackfin tuna fishing this past week was a blast. We caught 26 tunas in two and a half hours.

We were sight fishing the tunas running and gunning throw artificials to the tunas. It was a great time and the charter had their hads full each cast was hooked up within seconds. We probably hooked a hundred but got to keep 26. We were throwing top water plugs from rapaala called clackand raps and also throwing the gyro jigs. As soon as they hit the water they got eaten.
