Sailfish, Yellowfin Tuna, Roosterfish, Cubera Snapper
The Sailfish bite continues to be good thru the first two weeks of April and the bite has been especially good just in front of our bay, within 2 miles of the club. Sardine schools are popping up all along the coast and this is why the Sailfish come every season around this time. We’ve had some excellent days with anglers releasing up to 10 Sailfish a day but the bite seemed to turn off at times and they became difficult to catch. When the bite is on double and triple hookup were pretty common and it was also amazing to watch them feed in the huge bait balls.
Inshore, the Roosterfish bite has been rather slow lately due to a series of large ground swells that churned up the inshore coastal waters making it difficult for our crews to get to the hotspots. However, further to the South a few fish were released in the 40-50 lb range. We also managed to score some decent Cubera Snapper releases as well.
Lisa Griffith and her son Adien joined us for a 4 day fishing trip and had some excellent luck, releasing around 20 Sailfish. It was their first time catching Sails and both were very happy with the result. Walter Glaser also brought his 9 year old daughter Winni here for a week and she released her first Pacific Sail estimated at 110 lbs. Claudinei Gasparelli, Sigfredo Boos and Jesus Grecco were also here last week from Bolivia and all released their first Pacific Sailfish around 80 lbs.
