Last week the fishing continued to be good both offshore and inshore. Many Sailfish showed up on the 100 fathom curve and the Yellowfin Tuna blitz continued thorough the week. Add in a decent number of Black and Blue Marlin releases and many huge Dorados in the 50-60 lb range. The folks who ventured inshore were pleasantly surprised with some nice sized Roosterfish, Cubera Snappers and Almaco Jacks.
Philip Golden and his son Josh had trip of a lifetime. Both father and son released a Black Marlin that was estimated at 450 lbs and 310 lbs. Also, Patrick Black came all the way from Ireland and released his first Black Marlin estimated at 380 lbs and Pacific Sailfish that went around 90 lbs.
James Kitchens released his first Pacific Blue Marlin estimated at 375 lbs and James Stewart also had some great luck with the Blue Marlin and released his first that went 350 lbs.
Both Madison and Chad Morris released their first Pacific Sailfish estimated at 125 lbs and Brad and Stu Coren also released their first Pacific Sailfish , 120 lbs. Alexandre Guedes released his first Pacific Sailfish, a monster that went 150+ lbs. Tyler Gladd also scored his first Pacific Sailfish, 125 lbs and Mike Gladd got his first Pacific Sailfish that went 120 lbs.
Amy Morris, Scott Buff, Tom Black, Sellars Levy, Carter Bunk and Peyton all released their first Pacific Sailfish. It has been one of the best mixed bag weeks for the season and we are sure looking forward to some more great action as we roll through the summer months.
