Catching Sailfish In Ocean City, MD and the Outer Banks, NC
We have a tremendous billfish fishery and Capt. Josh has over 25 years of experience catching them. Sailfish action can be fast a furious during the bite. They hunt in schools and when we find them it can be non stop. These fish typically range from 40-60lbs and can put on an aerial display.
The mid-Atlantic region of the United States was ranked one of the top 10 billfish fisheries on the planet in 2014. In 2016 it was reported that the numbers here have reached unprecedented levels. What does this mean? When it comes to Sailfishing, you’ve come to the right spot.
Capt. Josh Wentling of the Instigator has over 25 years of experience fishing these waters for these species. He knows that when water temps rise these fish can be seen in as close as an inlet, or as far out as the middle of the Gulf Stream.
