Antonio and I did a day trip with RJ Boyle (the god father of sword fishing) out of Lighthouse Point Florida. We started trolling before sunrise and quickly caught a kingfish then a wahoo in 200 -300 feet. With fish in the box we ran east to gulf stream water and we're schooled on the art of rigging belly baits for deep dropping. With 18 pounds of lead we hit bottom then took 50 cranks to get the bait in the zone. On our second drift we had a quick tap tap on the tip and we were hooked up. RJ is a good captain and a great teacher of this fishery. Get south and book a charter and learn this game it will work in our canyons.

I booked a charter with R.J. Boyle of Lighthouse Point Fl Caught a mixed bag of 5 kingfish to 62 pounds, 4 blackfin tuna to 26 pounds,& a mahi to 8 pounds, all on live bait flying a kite.
a little windy but a great day.
Christmas Day I received a call from Bill Rauft that his 35' contender was in Palm Beach and tomorrow looked good to go for sailfish. The wind was east at 17 the livewell full with goggle eyes and Mike had the boat rigged and ready. We had the kite up by 8 am and a mahi in the box by 9 the radio was quiet and not much of a bite on for it being too warm and the wind not being North east as predicted. We managed 1 sailfish 1 mahi and came in to bend rods on grunts and jacks by noon. Happy New Years
