Hola everybody. This is going to be kind of a long one too! Fishing definitely has picked up this week in regards to the Billfish and some really large Dorado. We did even find a school of Yellowfin out there that was great for a couple of our boats that were able to get out there on it. We have been fishing mainly on the Cortez side out around 1150 and also a little closer in by the 95.
Don Benningfeild, Tanya Hendrix and Shawn Tadaro had 2 days of fishing scheduled with us. Now Don and Tanya have been out with us before and were hoping for lots of luck out there. Day one, June 30th, they caught a Dorado and Tanya released a nice Striped Marlin. They lost another and a Wahoo, but we all know those suckers get away too easy with their sharp little razor like teeth. I don’t know what happened out there day 2, as I was not here, but it looks like they had no luck at all on the 1st of July:(
Matt Nuchia and Matt Brand fished out on ReelRUm for a 1/2 day on the 1st and caught 2 Dprado.
Doug Tate and his sin fished aboard one of our Pangas on the 1st and had no luck either, a few bites only. Now, Tuesday the 2nd, was a whole other ballgame! They caught and released 3 Striped Marlin!! Awesome day for a Father son fishing trip. Check them out in the photo!!
Carl Manganaro and buddies Jay &David had the best day to report on the first, catching and releasing 4 Striped Marlin. The second day they went out was probably a let down after so much action day one, but on the 3rd, they still caught and released a Marlin.
Hayden Burns and his buddies fished for a second time aboard RedRum for a 1/2 day on the 2nd and had an AWESOME time releasing 3 Striped Marlin.
Corinne and Matt Weis and their friends fished aboard Colleen’s MAgic for the day and released 2 Striped Marlin.
Martin Dossett and his crew fished aboard Big Papi for a 1/2 day and had an exceptional time also releasing 2 Striped Marlin.
Enoch and Gideaon Kwok fished with buddy Andrew Lee aboard El Nuevo for the day. Gideon caught 2 Dorado, one of which weighed in at 60lbs and Andrew and Enoch caught a Striped Marlin.
Norman and Logan Young along with Kelly Hartmeyer boarded RumRunnin for the day and had a ton of luck catching a Dorado and releasing 3 Striped Marlin.
Lauren Hochheim and her crew fished on one of our partner boats with Captain Antonio. These guys had a great day, catching and releasing 3 Striped Marlin.
On the 3rd, Carl and Shelly Rash fished on ReelRum for 5 hours and released 2 Striped Marlin.
Joseph Drinkwater and his crew did not do so bad for a 1/2 day either, releasing a Striped Marlin.
Thomas Wiley and his group fished aboard El Nuevo with Captain Alex and Jesus. They had an awesome day, catching a Dorado and 2 Striped Marlin.
Jan Drinkwin and the Ponce’s fished on RedRum for the day and released 2 Striped Marlin.
Charles and Levan fished aboard one of our partner boats with Captain Ramon and released 2 Striped Marlin.
Daniel and Chloe Becker and buddy Ed Gordon fished with Captain Antonio on one of our partner boats. They slayed it, releasing 5 Striped Marlin. I bet their arms were a little shaky at the end of the day!
So, as you can see the Marlin bite is really like no other right now. Have you caught your trophy yet?
Thanks for reading!
