Sailfish are a highly prized game fish known for their speed and agility in the water. They are blue to gray in color and have a large, dorsal sail fin that can be raised and lowered. Sailfish can reach lengths of up to 10 feet and weigh over 200 pounds. Off the coast of Broome, sailfish are caught in the open ocean, near offshore islands and banks, and along shipping lanes. They are opportunistic feeders, preying on a variety of fish and squid. They are known to feed in large schools, making them a popular target for sport fisherman. To catch sailfish, anglers typically use trolling techniques with artificial lures, live bait, or dead bait.
