The Speedy Sailfish Awaits


If we go by trends of the past, the ideal days to capture a South Florida sailfish are the weeks when the Super Bowl is approaching as well as those following the event. This time of year, the official state saltwater fish of Florida can be so popular, even those that are just getting started with sailfish fishing have good odds of snagging one.

The sailfish, generally deemed to be the fastest fish navigating the vast ocean, is recognized for its gray and blue color and its dorsal fin, appropriately referred to as a sail, which also gives its name to the fish. A remarkably fast growth spurt is undergone by the fish, extending a length of almost five feet in a single year. Regarding the sail, while the fish swims, it lies in a folded down state and is only lifted until the sailfish is about to strike its prey. The increased sail serves to keep the bill of the sailfish mostly unnoticed, which facilitates the sailfish’s ability to catch its prey.

The super fast sailfish is among the multitude of sea dwellers you may meet when sailing the waters of South Florida with a deep sea fishing charter. Contact us today for more information or to set up your deep sea fishing charter.

Snap Memorable Photographs at Sea


Another way to recall and reflect on a memorable deep sea fishing trip is by snapping photographs. After all, once you make a huge grab, chances are it’s a moment you’ll want to look back on the thrilling moment. There are some tricks to learn should you want to take some photographs at sea, a few of which we’ll look at here.


Sunglasses make sense when deep-sea fishing on a sunny day, but they’re also useful when it comes to picture taking. The rays of the sun can be especially bright, especially when reflecting off the water, on especially sunny days in South Florida. A bunch of smiling yet squinting faces in pictures is no fun. Sunglasses, on top of that, will shield the eyes from harmful UV light.

When snapping your pictures, take the sun's angle into account. It will light a topic automatically, with your back to the sun. Just make sure the sun does not look straight through the lens of the camera, as this will cause a person to look washed out or too dim.

What you want to do when you snag a big fish is to have a visual image of how huge it is. There are numerous ways that you can go about it. When taking the photograph, the use of a tape measure is an alternative or you could use an item that will display the height difference.
