As winter approaches (we do actually have a winter in South Florida, it is just a bit more warmer than some other places farther to the north) sailfish will migrate south following schools of bait. The sailfish bite after a cold front in January through April can be phenomenal. This is usually considered the best time of year for sailfish fishing. Double digit strikes and often double digit releases of sailfish in one day are not uncommon if the conditions are right. This is why Miami and the whole of Florida are considered one of the world's top destinations for catching sailfish.
