Just a sequence of what happens on a sailfish boat

Postby Emerson » Mon Mar 21, 2011 7:38 am

My picture taking is definitely in the amateur category. Most of my pics are splashes after a jump or a good shot of a railing but..here are some ideas that might let you imagine what actually goes on during a sailfish troll.

On a clear day the volcanoes....yes some active wave good-bye..what a site!

The captains always get their fair due but the head mate is what does it on the deck. All anglers know this and here is one of the best, Flaco!

The mate will tease in a fish, get it excited then pitch the bait back and simultaneously, the angler, our Boss in this case, will hopefully get the fish to eat. You can see the bubbles from the bait on the left and from Brian.s popper on the right.

The actual eat can be amazing. Here Brian gets the fish to eat. Remember they do not always eat! In fact, Brian had some Flat Out major rejections (from fish :lol: )

Here you can see the top of the fish eating Gary’s popper

After the eat, sometimes the fish will go under the water but the aerial antics are what we all love...be it grey-hounding or just plain jumping!
Dave and Gary show some of these...

Sweet E. I was closing my eyes and ignoring the fact that I wished I was there, but you put me over the edge.
