Striped Marlin, Dorado, Yellowfin Tuna, Roosterfish, Cubera Snapper, Grouper
This February we have seen some very unusual weather patterns and as a result the waters surrounding Piñas Bay have been colder than normal. The billfish bite has slowed to a crawl but there are still a few Marlin and Sails prolong the coast. Many guests have opted to change tactics and explore our inshore fishery which has been nothing short of spectacular during the last two weeks. Gigantic Roosterfish and huge numbers of Cubera Snapper are stretching the lines and most anglers are having a great time with the different variety of inshore species such as Broomtail Grouper and African Pompano and Almaco Jack, so rest assured, we were well fed at the dinner table.
Carlos Kenda and Pat Murphy also released a nice pair of Striped Marlin in the 200 lb range and both Debbie Tarke and Kathie Hunter released their first Pacific Sailfish on the 70 lb range. David Boyle also released his first Pacific Sailfish estimated at 100 lbs. There were so many trophy Roosterfish and Cubera Snapper caught over the last two weeks that rather than list all the names, I’ve decided to post some truly outstanding trophy fish photos taken by our guests. Some of the best inshore action we’ve seen here in many years.
