Sailfish are a prize to most considering that many do not live in an area where sailfish are accessible… like umm, us. Whether you are chasing these bad boys out of a kayak or from the deck of a charter, catching sailfish is a blast and often leads to that one photo of you on your desk. Be ready to reel quickly if you want to stand a chance of landing one of these magnificent beasts.
