I just finished editing my photos and website from my last trip to Isla Mujeres to catch some sailfish. I can't say enough about the trip. When I went to the Galapagos with Amos last September, he wouldn't stop talking about the sailfish so I had to give it a shot. He wasn't kidding! As you saw with Berkley White's shots, the sailfish hunt is a fury of action. We heard that Berkley only had one bait ball the week before us and we hoped to fair better. We started out with a bang and got our bait ball on the first morning. Here are some of my shots...not really as fantastic as I had hoped but I was a lil rusty and didn't have much time to adjust. Please check out my website and toss me some critique. I know I may have shopped these too much but I didn't have the sharpness I wanted to show them right out of the camera.

Now that would be a great experience. Sounds like the way it can work sometimes for Great Hammerheads. Lots of Patience but worth it in the end.

Thanks for posting
