Caught Aboard the:

" Goin Off "


I took my youngest son John and my umpire partner Carl Schultze of Port St. John offshore on Monday July 2, 2001 and we fished until 2 P.M. It was a beautiful day and we started trolling at the weather buoy eventually making it out to the cones. We had a lot of fun and were lucky enough to catch two sailfish as you can see from the attached photos. We kept one fish to have it smoked and the second one was released unharmed to fight another day. They were both caught only a few minutes apart almost due east of Port Canaveral in 208 ft. of water along a rip current. There were millions of small flying fish in the area and judging from the size of the sailfish they were probably part of a school of sailfish that were balling bait. We also caught five dolphin to ten pounds and two barracuda that were also released.

Carl Schultze of Port St. John with his first sailfish caught just minutes after Johns.
Check out the time stamps on the pictures and NO they are NOT the same fish!
