Natalie from Dallas, Texas, decided she wanted to catch a sailfish while in Palm Beach. Joining the Reel Candy for an afternoon we only had a short time available to fill her wish. Within an hour we had two sailfish come up on the kite baits. After catching the one, she grabbed the other rod and began fighting the second fish. Natalie was able to obtain the release on both fish, and returned to the dock to meet her family.
Today anglers braving the rough seas enjoyed a good sailfish bite. There were several gaffer mahi caught, hopefully giving anglers some upcoming fun.
Join the Reel Candy team, now fishing from Sailfish Marina for the winter season
Since hurricane Matthew, the wind has been relentless. The Reel Candy, has been docked at Sailfish Marina on Singer Island in Palm Beach. This allows us to avoid the dangerous Jupiter Inlet conditions, and provides us maximum opportunities to fish those questionable days that we would normally cancel in Jupiter.The last two weeks the mahi bite has been real good with most fish in the 8-10 pound range. Most of these fish have been caught trolling small lures or sea witches on bait. The sailfish are arriving with this weeks fishing trips providing our anglers with multiple hookups on each charter. Kite fishing has been our preferred method with as many as 4 sailfish bites at one time. The Reel Candy makes every effort to promote the well being of the billfish population. We handle each caught fish carefully, and tag as many fish as possible for the Billfish Foundation. Although we understand every angler would like to have a picture with their catch holding their prized fish. We can only do this when the ideal conditions present themselves for a healthy released fish. Tagging does not interfere with the longevity of a billfish lifespan.
The Reel Candy Team is already booked for two Sailfish tournaments for 2016 – 2017. We limit the number of tournament entries in order to have sufficient dates available for our anglers that just want to enjoy a day on the water. “There’s more to Reel Candy than just Fishing”.
