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!
This Jupiter Sailfish report was wired by Chris Watkins on board the Reel Candy Sport fishing Charter boat which can be found between charters just offshore of the Square Grouper in Jupiter, FL.

Join the fun on the Reel Candy….”Making Memories that last a Lifetime” since 1995.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
What a week this has been! All kinds of records were broken for sailfish tournaments. Can you believe over 1,800 sailfish were caught in just 2 tournaments!!
Reel Candy and her team were busy with charters and played our part in this massive haul. We had some newbie’s aboard and 7 of our guests managed to catch their very first sailfish. This occurred in just a four day period charter. As you can imagine the trip home was great fun and no mention of the ones that got away. Deep Sea sailfishing is an experience never to be forgotten, the fight, the adrenalin and then the aching muscles, but smiles all round!
Another cold front is forecast for this week and I’m sure it will set off another record bite.
