The future of fishing in our area is
the smart management of our resource. While it is legal to harvest
Sailfish for mounting we choose to release all
Once a Sailfish is removed from the
water the survival rate is dramatically reduced. We will try to
get good photos of your fish in the water & under certain circumstances
the captain may remove a fish from the water to measure or photograph
your catch. For your safety and the fish's, the captain has the
discretion to land the fish or simply release in the water after proper
pictures are taken.
The taxidermist that we recommend to
our anglers, no longer use the real fish. They can build a better mount
for their customers using improved, modern, highly innovative methods of
reproductions from the molds of real fish. This service is also
available for all of the
that we catch off the coast of South Florida.
Therefore, we recommend that our
anglers who are lucky enough to catch a shark or billfish, and
would like to have a trophy of their fish, choose to release their fish
and have an exact replica built from a mold created from a real fish.
