After a successful tournament last week we are now geared up for yet another season of big game fishing at Pinas Bay. The fish are biting offshore there’s lots of opportunities at Marlin, Sailfish, giant Dorado and triple digit Yellowfin Tunas. There was certainly no shortage of fish for the dinner table.
We welcomed back some of ore regular die-hards like Andrzej Bilip who brought his wife Agnes for a week of billfishing. Andrezej is a well seasoned fisherman and great angler. I’ve had an opportunity to fish with this guy on a number of occasions and can tell you that he is as good as they come. On the first day out he released a Black Marlin, Pacific Blue Marlin and Pacific Sailfish. This is his second GRAND SLAM caught at TSL. His wife Agnes also released her first Black Marlin estimated at 400 lbs. We will be seeing Andrzej again in late September. Margot Vincent also returned this week, this time with her son Eric and his wife Lisa Lowery Vincent. List also released her first Black Marlin estimated at around 400 lbs. and also caught a hefty Yellowfin Tuna that went 120 lbs. Ron and Kelly Thayer were also back last week and had some really good fishing. Ron hit the 500 lb mark on a Black Marlin release.
We also welcomed back our friends from Peru who have been coming here every December for the last 8 seasons. Luis Dionisio and Calixto Romero, Alberto Vega, Arturo Woodman, Agostino Paoletti and Jose Antonio Onrubia. These guys all had a blast as usual and on the first day out one of their boats returned to the dock flying 3 release flags; 1 Black Marlin and 2 Pacific Blue Marlin.
Raleigh Werking, our Marketing Director was also here this week and this time with long time friends Mike Myatt (IGFA) and Dave Bulthius (Costa Del Mar). The “3 Amigos” had a great time fishing together and the first day out they got into some great Yellowfin Tuna action offshore. The boys returned to the docks with 3 Yellowfin slobs on the deck between 100 and 130 lbs. Dave also released his first Black Marlin estimated at 400 lbs.
Perry Forrester brought his buddies down to Piñas Bay this week and also had some good fishing. He released his first Black Marlin that went 450 lbs and Pierre Briere released his first Pacific Blue Marlin also estimated at 450 lbs. David White also released his first Pacific Blue Marlin estimated at 400 lbs.
