Atlantic Sailfish or Sail Fish, Billfish
Sailfish are OFFSHORE species, in south Florida associated with waters near the Gulf Stream; off the Panhandle near the 100 foot fathom line. We catch sailfish more often in the cooler months in East Central Florida and have often seen them “sailing” off Port Canaveral waters or around offshore bait pods “balling” bait together for the feed.
Sailfish are a rapid growing species, reaching 4 to 5 feet in a single year; swims at speeds up to 50 knots; feeds on the surface or at mid-depths on smaller pelagic fishes and squid.
63″ minimum from tip of bottom jaw to fork of tail. Limit of one per day per angler. Additional permits are required in federal waters.
