Mazatlan win!

December 22, 2013

We got lucky with a nice quadruple at 2:00. Picked up two more after that for the win! Now just to get paid on it. Had a blast in Mazatlan.
Still tons of bonita here. Lots of small yellowtail off the points. Some big ones at the Island.

Nov. 26th report

November 26, 2013

Water temps are down to 74-75. There are good numbers of yellowtail and bonita at the Island. They are a little tough to catch off of San Antonio a the moment. A 30# dorado was caught there the other day. Waiting on a good run of Sierra and bonita. The waters are still warm. Could be a run of marlin still. Off to Mazatlan for a tournament on Saturday.

Nov. 8th report

November 8, 2013

Looks like a couple nice days with the fish still out there. Water looks to be greening up though. We headed out for a few hours yesterday for 7 of 9 9-14# yellowtail, and a handful each of bonita, sierra, and skipjack. There should be plenty to eat this Fall!

Still great in November!

November 4, 2013

We are still experiencing great summer fishing. Two sails, two marlin, and a dozen dorado yesterday. The fish were a little larger, with dorado to 25# caught farther out. We caught one 18# fish and a 25# dorado in close this week. We hit one boil of 9# yellowtail coming in, with sierra and bonita mixed in. Have seen some big tails. One wahoo and a tuna were caught. Water is still at 79.5.

Close, but no cigar.

October 27, 2013

Well, now I have a second fish lost to haunt my life. The first one was a 7-800# fish in Hawaii. I didn’t know too much then about drag management, but when a fish that size hits and rips off 500+ yards in a minute you have an issue. I had the drag too tight and felt terrible. This one I don’t even want to get into at the moment, but the hook pulled 70′ from the boat. It most likely was a $1M+ fish in the Bisbee. Hide the razors. This could be my last post. Caught the heck out of everything else though. Water is still warm here. Will get a report.

Taking back the Cup!

October 16, 2013

After a horrible decision by the tournament director last year, they found no way to disqualify us this year. So really victory for the last three years in the Cantina Cup. We have the invitation for the World Offshore Championship in Quepos next year. I fished on Telamon. We caught six marlin on day one and four sails and a marlin on day two. Tons of small dorad out there. Arturo caught one of 18#. Most are barely 10#. Yellowtail, bonita, sierra, and all the inshore species showing up. A few small tuna were caught on the Reef. Temps are just dropping below 80 and the water is getting a tint of green. Tons of bait out there. Who knows how long things will last. Some good 200-250# marlin out there.

Fall is here!

October 6, 2013

I turned off the A/C and the NW winds are threatening cool green water. It could be a short end. For the moment though there are still good numbers of billfish. There are plenty of small dorado but not many bigger ones. Only a few reports of tuna a couple weeks ago.The inshore action is picking up. The Cantina Cup is next weekend and it should be a good one.

post Labor Day report

September 8, 2013

Most days are still pretty nice. Most of yesterday after another of our weekly rains it was around 86 most of the day. Mainly glass calm days with little swell. A few tailers and jumpers, but mostly blind strikes that we see coming in. We had one off half-day this week, but mostly getting 2-5 billfish a trip on half-days. A few dorado out there, with better numbers outside the reef with some floaters showing up. Friends lost one 40# fish yesterday. Few big ones during the tournament, with just a few weighable. 36# was the biggest. We saw a 50# fish. Heard of one 30# tuna caught. Some Blues pushing 300#. A lot of small Stripers. We had one mad rush of fish during the tournament. We got there late and still seemed to miss a ton of fish that day – my friend’s hook style and heavy leader I believe. We still came in third with twenty releases. First had thirty as they hit the hot spots twice. They lost a ton of fish too. Almost all of the 13 boats posted some good numbers. I think we’ll continue to see great action this entire year. I’m sure the yellowtail will come in good again also.

Best fishing in 30 years?

August 28, 2013

Well, that’s what someone stated. Not sure if we really had fishing this good thirty years ago. Maybe we know a little more now. The dorado still haven’t shown much size. The last Dorado Derby tournament last week was won by a 14# fish. We’ve only had one 32# fish and one 23# dorado. Maybe only one other over 20#. A lot of smaller ones though and they taste great. Only a few small tuna reported. No stories of really big marlin yet. We’ve had a fair run of them in various sizes. The sailfish bite has still been epic. We are still hearing some double digit catches. This weekend is the Labor Day Tournament, so we are excited.

Dorado are showing up

June 22, 2013

We are finally starting to get dorado in closer. A lot of trash and seaweed 12-18 miles out holding fish. The big ones should be here soon it sounds like. There is still a good pack of sailfish out there. We had 6 year-old Jonah bring in three sails early in the week on a nice calm day. Will have to work on the GoPro video of us swimming with the fish. Saw a couple nice marlin yesterday, but they were not interested in playing. A 150# shark grabbed one line though and showed us his teeth at the boat. I think I saw one monster wahoo. Looking like a windy week, but we will be holding on.

tight lines,

Bryan
