Sailfish Specifications

Water: Salt Where: Offshore / Surf
Size: Most common at 30-60 pounds with many being smaller and larger fish upwards of 100 pounds being rare.
Fight: Like the Marlin only smaller, this fish is top of the line for speed, acrobatic ability and strength of pull. A top notch gamester.
Deliciousness: Good But Typically Not Eaten, Please Release For Others To Enjoy
Range: Both Coasts Technique: Drifting / Trolling / Casting
Baits: Baitfish / Lures / Flies Tackle: Spinning / Fly Tackle

The Sailfish is characterized by a long, slender but powerful body, with a royal to darker blue upper and a whitish underside. May have vertical stripes along his flank. A more slope forehead leads to his bill and a large dorsal fin gives him his name because of its sail like appearance.

These are found in adeeper waters but will venture close in than most of his cousins, occasionally being caught at nearshore depths all the way into the surf.

Rigged baitfish and live baitfish make for the best natural bait while streamers, tubes and jigs make for the best artificial bait, a combination of the two works the best.
