Kite Fishing for Sailfish


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”.

Join us for memories that last a lifetime! Book your trip today………

Palm Beach Wahoo

Wahoo Fishing Palm Beach, Jupiter, Stuart Florida
Since this last full moon the summer wahoo bite has been awesome south of the Jupiter Inlet. Here’s a couple pictures of happy wahoo anglers.

Last week anglers fishing with the Reel Candy and Reel Candy II went 3 for 4 on sailfish while trolling. Congratulations to Mike McCarthy, on his first ever sail.

Palm-Beach-Wahoo-2Epic Bonita fishing is still fantastic along with those anglers with the desire to battle a big shark.

September is one of the best months of the year to swordfish. We have a few daytime swordfish charters booked already just before the moon. Since this is prime time we kept a couple open days for our guests who would like to experience an offshore trip for monster swords, so call now and schedule your trip. Join us and book your trip from Jupiter Inlet Marina, just inside the Inlet or Sailfish Marina Palm Beach.

The U-Tiki Beach and Jupiter Inlet Marina is now open. The Reel Candy, Reel Candy II, along with the Badfish are all located here at the Marina. We would like to thank Jimmy U-Tiki Byrd and his staff at the Square Grouper & Castaway’s Marina, for the hospitality and all their help while the old Seasport Marina was demolished and the construction of the new facility was finally completed.

Also, Jupiter has some of the best dining facilities anywhere, such as the U-Tiki (home to the Reel Candy), Jetty’s Restaurant (home to Reel Candy II), the Coola Fish Bar at Legacy Place, and the Kee Grill in Juno, just minutes from the boat.

The Reel Candy Crew

Fish Heads Sailfish Invitational in Stuart Yields 85 Sailfish in Two Days

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!

Kudos to the gals on Reel Candy for all the time and effort they put into the theme “TEASERS”, for this year’s event. At Saturdays Third Annual Blue Water Babes Fish for a Cure Ladies KDW Tournament held at the Castaways Marina and Square Grouper Tiki Bar in Jupiter.
