and kingfish, are the most sought after game fish on our coast. Their popularity
among local fishermen was one of the reason's Capt. Tom choose the name, "Sail
King" Sport Fishing Charters. Of the two top species in our area, sailfish
are undisputedly number one.
It's no secret the waters off Palm Beach and Jupiter are known as "Sailfish
Alley". Anglers from all over the world come here in pursuit of trophy sailfish.
Whether kite fishing, trolling or drift fishing; sailfish are a likely catch.
While winter is considered "peak season", during the summer months,
large the influx of baitfish such as goggle eye, blue runner, spanish sardine,
cigar minnow, threadfin herring, and pilchards reside along the beach and will
attract and hold sailfish throughout the season.
Drifting with live bait is the most popular and effective method of catching
sails and kings. The use of kites and flat lines and downriggers allows Capt.
Tom to cover more water and expose his baits to as many fish as possible Live
chumming with pilchards brings fish close to the boat and affords anglers the
opportunity to pursue sailfish with fly gear if so desired.
