Sailfish Tournament

May 22, 2020

Grab your rods and reels, and wade through the open waters, it's time for the Islamorada Fishing Clubs Annual Sailfish Tournament.

The kick-off for this competition is January each year, and the competition will be fierce. Grab your best angling friend and try your hand at some good old catch and release of these giant beauties. Sailfish are the fastest fish in the ocean and mostly enjoy swimming in the colder waters that fall upon the islands in January. They are notorious for their large bills and always put up a tough fight for the person on the other end of the rod; this attribute makes them great competition and a pretty awesome trophy fish. You can put your lines in the water right at 8:00 am, but be sure to have them out by 5:30 pm. Do you think you have what it takes to fight your way to the top?
