March 6, 2010 – sailfish bite heats up

The first reports I heard this evening were good.  I talked to a guy that did a half day afternoon trip and they went 3 for 6 on sailfish 15 miles out.  He said several boats had 20 plus sailfish bites today about 25 to 30 miles out.

The guys on the 38′ Custom had 10 sail bites yesterday and they caught a big mahi and a nice wahoo.

The 35′ Bertram just called and they caught 7 sails today but he said they were little guys…75 to 80 pounders.  Our sails are usually always over 100 pounds. He said they also caught 3 nice mahi mahi.

The guys on the 28′ center console went 6 for 7 on sailfish today…it was the clients dream to catch a sailfish and today he and his friends caught 6.  Tomorrow they are going for roosterfish.

The 26′ regulator caught 3 sails, 2 mahi and a wahoo yesterday and today they caught 7 sailfish.

The 32′ Maverick went 5 for 10 on sailfish today, they would have caught a few more but they had a couple first timers on the boat and they lost a couple of the fish because they could not crank fast enough and they got slack in the line.

The 60′ Bertram just called and said they went 9 for 30 today…he said he saw more fish today than he has all month.

A couple captains said the water temp dropped a couple degrees and they think that may be what turned on the bite.
