June 28th report – Huge dorado

June 28, 2012

Well, we still haven’t caught anything over 40# yet, but any day now. After losing the first 24# fish and a large sail that both pulled the hook, we then caught a marlin, sail, three 25-37# dorado and several more. Have heard of many 50+# fish caught this week. One friend was claiming eleven kept that averaged 30#. Some big weed patches around, dead whales, and lots of flying fish. A few tuna have been caught too. Looking like a few more great weeks of fishing!

June 22nd report

June 22, 2012

Looks like our tuna run never materialized, but with the blue water returning this week maybe they’ll show again. Water is in the low 80’s. Not too many marlin or sails the last couple of days. Boats are still doing pretty good though. A lot of seaweed patches being found that are holding fish. Some big dorado have been caught, as well as some 2-400# blues. Still fishing up a storm and looking for a good rest eventually.

Tight Lines,

June 14th report – Repeat for Team Telamon and our first slam

June 14, 2012

Great fishing in San Carlos. Having great success with naked ballyhoo on circle hooks and 30# line. One loss though as a large tuna screamed out 250 yards of line and parted what I thought was a pretty loose drag as it screamed around the depths. We did get a tuna the other day, and two sails, two marlin, and six large dorado. The last one was a beautiful 200#+ striper that is still under debate of being a Blue. I’ll take a slam though even if it isn’t a royal slam. We hit multiple weed patches last week for some crazy fishing. One day we had the patch all to ourselves catching and releasing close to fifty dorado, with a couple 35# fish. Still some yellowtail at the Island. The sierra are in, along with small dorado. The sailfish are to within a mile of San Antonio. Water is clearing up and a few tuna are being caught. One was caught 4.5 miles out. There was a report of 100# tuna boiling. A 300# marlin was caught the other day. Ours had the biggest fin I’ve even seen, just six miles offshore. It kicked in and then nothing. Eight minutes later I was looking at the photos commenting that the fin looked like that of a Blue, and that it must have been 3-400#. Then I looked back and Arturo had it hooked up and it was jumping like crazy into the distance. What a fight on 30# line. All fish have been released in excellent condition – except some tasty dorado and one yellowfin.

June 1st report

June 1, 2012

The dorado are in, but also the green water. The south wind is finally coming up after a long late NW, so hopefully the blue water will blow back in. We had to go 20mi. out yesterday and the fish aren’t in the green. Some big dorado are starting to show in the mix. We were catching tons of small ones on light tackle earlier in the week. I had a marlin take a popper that I cast from the bridge yesterday as the client was bringing in a dorado, but the reel broke at that moment. Not sure I would have had much of a hookset anyhow on a long casting rod. Should be a good but rough tournament weekend. Fishing with Team Telamon and we are looking to repeat!
