Our highlighted destination for March, the Sunshine State hosts big numbers of sailfish this month. From Key West to Islamorada in the Florida Keys, up to Miami and north to Stuart, these light-tackle gamesters will take center stage, especially after a passing cold front. Depending on the region, target sails using live bait suspended beneath kites or by trolling a spread of small circle-hooked ballyhoo behind dredges and teasers to produce more bites. In the Keys, sails can also be found tailing down-sea in rough conditions or showering bait up on the patch reefs, although this phenomenon will tail off as the season progresses. Twenty-pound-test tackle is standard, although many sailfish aficionados will lighten up to 12-pound-test, especially in calm conditions.
