Big seas. Tall tow­ers. Kites, threads and gogs — it must be sail­fish sea­son in South Florida. Al­ways a team ef­fort, from the cap­tain wedged in a cor­ner of alu­minum tub­ing three sto­ries above the ac­tion, ma­neu­ver­ing the boat for a per­fect drift, to the an­glers in the cock­pit,work­ing the baits and scan­ning the spread for a flash of color or swirl of a fin. The adren­a­line rush is un­de­ni­able. So keep work­ing the edge, wait­ing for those tail­ers to surf down-sea into the pat­tern. For­tune fa­vors the brave, and the pa­tient.
