Great spring bite

April 28, 2013

We always seem to hit that spring bite where the fish are huge and you can fill the box. The pangas were filling the boat with live bait. Some good cabrilla showing up. The marlin are close!

Tight Lines,


Almost there ….

The southern winds are up daily, but the wind is keeping it cloudy and cool. There should be a lot of marlin stacked up just outside. We will check it out tomorrow. One was caught 26 miles out. We scratched out three yellowtail today, but the bait is still thicker than I’ve ever seen it. We had twelve anglers in the Ironman tournament, and only fifteen fish were caught. They did have a pretty good day the day before though. Lots of trips, but nothing too special. A few sierras, almost had a bonita, a few pargos, and some decent calicos. We did get one whopping 18# cabrilla though. I’ve only caught one other one that big. Another front, so it will be another week for the dorado at least. A lot of wahoo and tuna showing up far to the south.

Tight lines,

April 1, 2013

Had a busy Semana Santa week with people wanting to fish. The bottomfishing was epic on Wednesday with multiple calicos within seconds, only to be off and on the rest of the week. For the most part they did pretty good. The current just got too strong at times. One friend got a 56# grouper. Sounded like the pangas eliminated multiple tons of spawning fish. The yellowtail seem like they might be getting ready as they had lockjaw yesterday. A lot of big ones on the surface chasing ballyhoo. On Friday we got a nice catch of eight. The Island is doing better, but the fish are still focused on small bait. Lots of whales out the other day, caught our first Sierra, have seen a few hammerheads, and then we passed a marlin 1.5 out. It kicked in to our squid, but that was it. Maybe it ran into my other lines with deep divers. Saw a flying fish a half mile out too. Not too far off if this wind let’s up!
