Sailfish Fishing Miami… All About Sailfish
“There are two subspecies of “sailfish” The first is Atlantic and the second is Indo-Pacific. Both range throughout the warm and temperate parts of the world’s oceans. They are both blue, purple, copper and gray in color, with white underbellies. They get the Sailfish name from their spectacular dorsal fin. It stretches nearly the length of their body and is much higher than their bodies are thick.
They are two of the members of the “billfish” family. As a billfish they have an upper jaw that sticks out well beyond their lower jaw. It forms a distinctive bill like “spear”. They spend most of their lives on the ocean surface. Sailfish are usually far from land feeding on schools of smaller fish like sardines and anchovies. Sailfish often “Ball Up” the bait fish with their sails. This makes them easy prey. They also feed on squid and octopus.
Sailfish meat is fairly tough and not widely eaten. Although they are one of the most prized game fish. These powerful, streamlined beasts can grow to more than 8 feet and weigh up to 100+ pounds.
