Well we didn’t have anyone with double digit Marlin catches, so I guess fishing has come back to earth. But, we did have some really nice size Marlin brought in today. Cesar and Rene fished with Andy Miller and his son and they caught and released two Marlin, one estimated at 190lbs. Another father and son duo was the Fulton party aboard Rum Runnin‘. They also brought in two nice size Marlin, a Dorado, and a few Red Snapper as well. All smiles from the Fulton’s. Matt Rudolph and his buddies fished on El Nuevo and had a great day. 3 Marlin and 1 Dorado were caught. Matt had a really nice Striped Marlin estimated at 200lbs. He decided a replica of the fish would look great in his lake house and had to have a trophy. Realizing the fish may not fit, he called the builder and had the specs in the house changed. Now that is cool! The Hale family, last but not least, fished with red hot Captain Omar. They caught and released a Marlin, and boated a Tuna and two Dorado. Someone from the family got a little seasick, but we won’t mention her here. The last thing we would want to do would be to embarrass their teenage daughter!! She got big props from everyone at RedRum for hanging in there though.
The final two days of the year proved to be very successful for RedRum anglers. Tuna, Dorado, Mako Shark and of course, Marlin were all brought to the boats in big numbers. Fishing has been hot at the Lighthouse on the Pacific side, so clients are getting bites 20 minutes after they board the boats. ReelRum has stayed hot, bringing in another 5 Marlin on the final day of the year.
RedRum employees and father and son George and Cesar Matzunaga took TantRum out on the first day of the year and released 5 Marlin in 3 hours! Nice way to spend your day off fellas.
ReelRum was the norm today, not the exception. The rest of the boats are back and the results were amazing. Rum Runnin came in with 3 Marlin and 1 Dorado. Our good friend Keith Spencer took out some good friends on El Nuevo and they were lucky enough to land an astonishing 8 of 9 Marlin they hooked. Rounding out the group, with a phenominal day was the Radney crew with Cesar and Americo on Tantrum. I am sure they fast asleep now, as they battle with 10 Marlin today, bringing all of them to the boat and releasing each and every one.
Great day guys!!!
Our good pals Andy and Andy from England had a sensational third day on the water with us. ReelRum and Captain Omar stayed red hot with 6 Striped Marlin in 3 hours. The Andy’s threw in the towel after that and were back before Noon.
Thank the new moon, Santa, the fishing gods or RedRum Captains and Mates, but Dorado and Tuna have returned. After a solid two weeks of only Marlin bites, table fare started to show up in Cabo waters again. On the 26th we saw one of our boats pull into the Marina with a yellow flag flying and we thought they must have been flying the flag in order to get the dust off. This was not the case, the boats had actually caught a few Dorado. Thursday the 27th it was more of the same, much more. Each boat brought in at least 2 Marlin and a Dorado. Javier managed to find 2 Marlin and 3 Dorado. Alex on El Nuevo found two of each. Cesar had a Dorado and 4 Marlin and Omar took the daily prize with 2 Marlin, 1 Dorado and 10 Tuna. The Kastilahn crew were troopers on this charter. They got to the arch and ReelRum had a problem with the water intake. They had to come back into the marina and patiently wait while our trusty mechanic Rene diagnosed the problem, a plastic bag. After a 45 minute delay they were back on the water. The Kastilahn’s were also the first boat back with 13 fish. Needless to say they were happy they stuck around for a few minutes. Friday the 28th was another good day of fishing. The school of Tuna could not be found again but Marlin and Dorado were still around. Omar and Jesus stayed hot and landed 5 Marlin. Nuevo RedRum had a great day with 1 Marlin and 3 big Dorado. Cesar had 4 Marlin and a Dorado and Javier had 2 Marlin for the Gower clan.
El Nuevo had a late start this morning as Steve Sagan from San Diego came in on a cruise ship to enjoy a day of fishing with RedRum. He and his group had a great day fishing, catching and releasing 5 Stripe Marlin and 3 Dorado. They headed back to the cruise ship and off to their next location.
The office will be closed tomorrow for Christmas Day but the boys will pick up right where we left off.
From the RedRum family to yours, we would like to wish everyone Happy Holidays.
