Fall Sailfish

The Sail fishing has got off to a great start, we have been Seeing Sailfish since September 1st. We normally fish for Sails by kitefishing and dragging live baits when we do not have wind. On Good Hit Sportfishing we are live bait specialist, using live bait 90% of the time. We also like to use light tackle to target these fish, either 20lb spinner or 20lb conventional outfit. On our boats we use top of the line equipment, to make sure we do not have equipment failure. Having great equipment is a huge part of the battle when it comes to light tackle fishing. On October 4 th 2019, We hooked four sailfish at the same time. Landing 3 of the 4 sailfish with only one angler, he sure had his hands full with all these sailfish. His buddy’s were really kicking theirselves for not coming on that day! Alantic Sailfish are the most popular gamefish our customers like to target off of Fort Lauderdale. We target these fish only one mile off of the beach in Fort Laudersale. While winter approaches the more Sailfish we see, having the best number in November . We have been having the best luck with our 3/4 day fishing charter, leaving an hour earlier than the other boats and coming in an hour later than the other groups. Sometimes that extra hour in the morning really makes the difference. If you have any questions about Sail Fishing, message me at anytime. I would be happy to answer and questions about our fishery. I hope you guys enjoyed my post. Captain Mike, Good Hit Sportfishing

The sail-fishing continues to be productive through spring . Doing the normal, kite fishing when we have wind and drifting pilchards when the seas are calm. Grouper Season Has finally opened and the Grouper fishing is Hot. When we have current we are catching a few in a trip. We caught our personal best Gag Grouper in the first week of May 50.15lbs. Along with the Groupers, the Mutton Snapper are also starting to make an appearance as well. The wreck fishing is the most effective technique recently, catching a 30lb cubera snapper on our normal ship wreck. This is the third Large Snapper we have caught in 3 months of wreck fishing. One of the toughest fish in the ocean, and also put up a hell of a fight. While swordfishing has been on fire, this is the best year we saw for swordfish in 8 seasons. Day or Night have both been productive, catching one of these galtitator of the seas is not out of the question. On the few swordfishing trips that we did, we caught multiple fish. I would recommend the daytime for the best experience. We prefer to use two electric reels during the day. We also carry a few manual assist reels if you want to crank one in yourself. Consider yourself warned, reeling in a swordfish in 1800’ can be strainuuis. When sword fishing is slow during the day, stoping for grocery’s on the way In is a must. A few drops in 800’ of water can land you some tasty Black Belly Rose Fish. Which are a deep water fish that are easy to catch, and also great for the dinner table. Bringing in the new year with good fishing is always a good sign for the year to come. Make sure to check out our custom trips to find which trip best suits you and your group. I hope you guys enjoyed my post, Captain Mike
