Best Fishing Destinations in September for Marlin and Sailfish | Marlin Magazine

The World's Best Fishing Destinations for September

We track the best fishing for marlin and sailfish around the world

While the white marlin action remains reliably strong off the East Coast in September, those with an adventurous streak can hit the international circuit for some fantastic opportunities. The islands of the Seychelles will see excellent action on black marlin and big Pacific sailfish, while Australia will also invite anglers with terrific light-tackle opportunities for black marlin opportunities. Closer to home, look no farther than the Florida Keys outpost of Islamorada for swordfish, where daytime deep-dropping reigns supreme.
