Default Charter for sailfish out of Palm Beach

Looking for a charter to catch sailfish out of PB. I have my own boat and have caught everything except a sailfish. Any recommendations for a good charter that will target sailfish out of PB. Looking to do something in November. Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Post front, you could troll a budweiser can with a hook and catch those critters. Lots of good charters at sailfish marina.

That's gonna be a lot of money just to catch a stinking sailfish. Either a day or two after a good cold front with live bait it's almost a sure thing. Gets better in December and January though.

Contact Capt. Chip Sheehan of Chip's Ahoy Charters out of Boynton Beach behind Two George's Restaurant. He's the guy you want to fish with. Tell him Shane said hello.

Those two gentleman mentioned are both very good and can certainly catch you a sailfish, they are out of Boynton mostly...close enough to Palm Beach of course. However, if I
wanted to purely catch a sailfish I would contact Capt. Pat Price at Daymaker Charters out of Stuart. As close to a guarantee on catching a sail as you are ever going to get.

As Darcizzle mentioned, Stuart is much more productive. During the winter sailfish tournaments the Palm Beach fleet usually heads out of Sailfish Marina up north from the Loran Tower area and sometimes up to Ft Pierce.

Probably the last 3 or so sailfish I hooked were while bottom fishing out of St Lucie Inlet with a free swimming live bait. Can't say that I actually caught one of those because my fishing buddy refused to pull up the anchor.

If Skipper is around he can catch you some on The Carolina Gentleman. I think he is still in the Bahamas helping with the relieve efforts though.

All these suggestions are good. How do you want to fish for them? Pats going to use dredges, guys around palm beach are going to put kites up. When they are thick you’ll catch them on double rigged horse balky on aircraft cable, when they aren’t you’ll need super Fluor and super bait.

This is an excellent point.I for one won't fish if kites are involved,I dislike them that much.Sails are what we mostly fish for in S.Florida.

Curious why you don't like kites?
