Incredible Florida Offshore Fishing Action: Sailfish & Snapper
Captain James Fenn, wife Kim, and crew Scott and Jason of Team Controlled Chaos are a great local team and good friends. TCC has placed well in a dozen tournaments this year. We fished out of Lake Worth Inlet, Palm Beach, Florida in an area known as Sailfish Alley where the gulf stream is funneled between the Bahamas and Florida's east coast bring the stream closer to land than in any other spot in the US; it's an offshore angler's paradise. We fished in 100-150' of water which is only a mile or two from shore. I caught two sailfish, then we caught a bunch of muttons. Kim fought the last sailfish that was foul hooked for a long time and then we took extra care to release the sailfish. MUSTAD circle hooks help to ensure a quick and easy release of these fish preserving the fishery. Simply touching the leader when you get a sail close to the boat is a legal IGFA catch. Leaders are limited to 15 feet total length.
