Fishing for sailfish is a popular sport in the Palm Beach area. “Sailfish Alley” holds many sails during the winter months. These fish have a life span of about 4 to 5 years. They are not much for table fare unless you are going to smoke it. Most boats catch and release these fish. They are seen on a daily basis in the winter free jumping to shake parasites out of their gill plates.
