15 Great Sailfish Spots

Whether you want triple-digit trophies, double-digit-release days or both, here are 15 great sailfish spots in three oceans where you can make it happen

Panama, Piñas Bay

Time it so you're here when sails are whacking sardines (mostly likely to happen May through July), and you'll enjoy triple and quad hookups. December and January are good alternative months for sails. Just watch out for grander marlin here as well - Tropic Star boats hook 'em. Many line-class record sails, as large as 199 pounds, weighed in here.

Why You Should Go: Calm waters, big sails and often very short runs to lines in all make for world-class sailfishing when timed right. Staying at famed Tropic Star Lodge is a bonus. Quick flight down to Panama City at generally very affordable rates. Outstanding boats/crews for anglers looking to pitch baits or cast flies to sails.

But... Fabulous lodge but no bargain rates, nor are there less-pricey alternatives in the area. Overnight in Panama City generally required en route and sometimes when returning to the states as well.
