The first local major sailfish tournament for the season is in the books with 14 boats catching 85 fish in the two day event. Congratulations to Fishheads Tackle Sponsor and Lo Que Sea for their fist place finish. Tony Huerta, owner of Lo Que Sea, and Captain Kevin Paul caught and released seven sailfish Tuesday to win the two-day Fish Heads Sailfish Invitational in Stuart with 13 total sailfish releases.
The Reel Candy has been fishing everyday the weather permits. This is the best year for catching dolphin (mahi mahi) that we have experienced for several years. Remember “they taste so nice they named them twice!”
They sailfish are showing up and we have been catching them with both trolling or dredge fishing and kite fishing live bait. We have some open dates next week and a couple between Christmas and New Years.
Hope to see everyone at the Pirates Cove Tournament this weekend. Good Luck to all the Teams!
