In Miami, there is an abundance of sailfish within two miles of shore. Here are some excellent tips to help you fish successfully for them.
A successful sailfish outing is often best achieved by using the kite fishing technique. Kites come in many different weights and for various wind conditions. On one kite alone, it best to use two or three live baits.
Usually, for a “spread,” it is ideal to use two independent kites with live bait on them. Dangle the baits just slightly below the water’s surface, at 75ft intervals. Use a little sliding release clip connected to the main kite.
When a sailfish grabs for the bait then your reel the line will tighten, triggering the clip to release it’s grasp on your fishing line, and you are then in control of the fish. You could even get a double hook-up, with two fish.
