Sailfish, Wahoo & Sharks
Sailfish, Wahoo & Kingfish is Hot off Miami Beach
This time of year we are catching Sailfish, Wahoo & Kingfish trolling. We are seeing large schools of Ballyhoo on the edge of the deep Reef. Although we typically switch from Bonita strips to rigged ballyhoo when we see the bait schools move into our area. Single hooked Ballyhoo rigged with skirts, chuggers & sea witches on the surface in the riggers. We fish double hooked Ballyhoo with similar lures on the planers down deep.
We typically catch the Sailfish and Wahoo’s on the surface rigger baits. Although we do catch a few larger kings on the surface this time of year. We set our planers to dive between 30 feet and 60 feet below the surface. We see most of our Kingfish action on the deep planer baits. Our deep baits are also a great place to target and catch wahoo.
