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!

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.

Tight Lines,
