Sailfishing From A Kayak

Posted on August 24th, 2013 by Mike

Many anglers take paddle each year and head out to 120ft of water off Miami with one fish in mind, the Atlantic Sailfish.  Anglers pack live baits via tow and make their way into between 90-120 feet of water and deploy usually 2 flat lines.

Seas are best when 2 foot or less and circle hooks are a must.  With two flat lines deployed, the bails are best to be open or a light drag.  Once the sailfish picks up your bait, simply REEL REEL REEL.  You will come tight on your sailfish via kayak and end up with a hook in the corner of the fish
