South to PB - north to Juno

The SAILFISH bite continues to remain constant this month. On text book days, like January 12th and 13th, where the winds were out of the North and you had choppy seas, we caught 21 and 18 sails, respectively. Otherwise, on days where they don't feed as well, we've been averaging 6 sails per day over the last 20 trips; some up to 80 lbs! and multi-strike catches!

Have also had some nice dolphin and kingfish catches (usually 2-3 catches per trip). On January 14th, we had a White Marlin caught (in addition to a few sails to that day). We had some hammerhead and spinner shark catches (on January 16th, we had 7 spinner sharks). On a recent charter (Jan 15th), we saw a giant spinner shark jump - had to be one of the largest I've seen lately. Come join us for some great fishing!!
