SAILFISH
Istiophorus platypterus

Sailfish can be caught here in Mazatlan Mexico just about year round from March thru December with water temps from 68 to 88 degrees Fahrenheit which is between 20 and 31 degrees Celsius.

The Sailfish average here from 60 to 90 lbs but many are caught slightly over 100 lbs.

The color of Sailfish will be dark blue on their back with brown-blue laterally and a silvery white belly. Their upper jaw is elongated in the form of a spear. Their dorsal fin is in the shape of a sail with black spots.

The Sailfish here can be found in the open ocean around bait fish.

The preffered method of fishing for Sailfish here is by trolling Mullet or Mackerel as well with the combination of plastic squid. If we get into a school of Skipjack or Bonito, we may stop to get a few live to troll. We also us a variety of trolling lures, konaheads and plastic squid.
