The Sailfish is a highly prized species by anglers because of its outstanding sporting characteristics. Once hooked up, the angler is likely to experience many thrilling jumps by the fish as it tries to escape its fate. The enormous dorsal fin makes the Sailfish easy to identify at any size.

Sailfish are colored steely-blue dorsally, and fade to white or silver towards the belly.

Sails are targeted by offshore anglers using a variety of trolled artificial lures.
