Ready for winter?

November 9, 2014

Am I going Mexican?  Sorry,  just don’t post much. Same old … catching fish. I’m pretty good about a weekly report to whatsupsancarlos.com,  so go sign up for their newsletter.  I just don’t know who reads these, whether it would make any dent in my site ranking, or who is new wondering who is the best.

Plenty busy at times running a lot of trips.  Maybe working out a few boat kinks, and it looks like we  might have a new 32′ with premium tackle for $80-100/hr.

It was a good summer with a number of tournament wins. New captain will be here December,  but it will take a couple years for me to train Fisher Replogle to drive the boat.  We’ll see what his mother says though.

It pains me to see the water turn green,  but it is still 80 in November with fish around.  The Fall fish are showing.  The water could turn and clear up. Whatever happens we will find the fish and good times.  Hope to see you down here!

Been to a lot of places lately, and still see San Carlos consistently the best overall.

 

May 16th, 2014 We’re back.

May 16, 2014

O.K. I guess I was saving drafts and not publishing them. I don’t do well with change. Anyhow, we have been fishing hard. A marlin a day for the last five trips with many misses and a lot of cold shoulders from the fish. The temps are up today though and I expect them to be biting with a lot of dorado and sailfish coming in soon. We were still catching a ton of bonita this last week. Some yellowtail at the Island but they switched to live bait. We had some incredible popper action in April when I took the Ironman tournament as the new Popperman with 22 landed. I probably had an equal amount pull hooks and break off on the rocks. Before that we had several weeks of up to twenty a day caught trolling, and many were going 30#. No glory in a couple Costa Rica tournaments besides a ton of fish caught, but we are lined up to fish some big ones this summer. The boat is keeping busy catching fish and I expect another incredible summer. Just not sure if I’m ready for that temperature to climb up yet.

hot bite!

May 16, 2014

We caught about 36 yellowtail the other day, releasing the smaller ones. A mix of bonita and calicos too, with one grouper. I must have hit a fish for twenty straight drops. A lot of the fish are pushing up to 25# and they are just a couple miles out.

Jan. 22nd report

May 16, 2014

We had excellent fishing up until the last few weeks. There are still some good reports coming in at times. The bonita are still around. The Island has been producing nice yellowtail. Things should pick up before the full moon.

Bonita madness

May 16, 2014

We have had an incredible run of bonita. The fish were different sizes at times, but plentiful. We weren’t able to go a minute without a fish at times. Lots of small yellowtail too with a few lager ones in the mix. I think we will start to see some bigger ones soon with less bonita. Some nice fish at the Island, but they are deep.

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.

Tight Lines,

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.
