The Super Fast Sailfish

Historically, the weeks near the Super Bowl and those that follow shortly after it are the best times to catch a South Florida sailfish. The official state saltwater fish in Florida can be so abundant this time of year, you don't have a sailfish fishing pro to snag a couple of them.
Viewed by scientists as the ocean’s fastest fish, the sailfish is known for its gray and blue color and its dorsal fin called a sail that also gives the fish its name. The fish experiences a surprisingly quick growth spurt, reaching a length of nearly five feet in just one year. As for the sail, it remains in a folded down position while the fish swims and is only raised once the sailfish is about to attack its prey. The raised sail assists with keeping the sailfish’s bill mostly undetectable, making it easier to snag prey.
With a deep sea fishing charter, the sailfish is one of the many sea dwellers you may encounter on the South Florida seas. Contact us today to learn more.

The Popular Crevalle Jack

Among the many fish you may be likely to find in the Miami waters in January, the crevalle jack is among them. As part of the jack family, the fish goes by several different names including couvalli jack, yellow cavalli, black-tailed trevally, and more. It’s recognized by its fin colors and deep body, and it can grow to about nine inches in length, though this is rare.
The crevalle jack spends its time and inshore as well as offshore waters, typically near bays and lagoons, or over reefs. It is known for being a powerful predator, consuming small sea dwellers like shrimp, crabs, prawns, and more.
The fish remains a popular recreational catch, being attracted to cut and live bait plus artificial lures. Interestingly, however, if the crevalle jack happens to be in feeding mode, it will generally ignore any of these lures. When caught, it will make a “snorting” sound, somewhat similar to those made by pigs.
