We’ve had a lot of missed opportunities due to short bites on the ballyhoos. Even using a trap hook they keep biting it short many times you don’t even know it happened. We had two fish this week lost due to straightening the hooks on the Rapalas. They were not the 15 pounders.
Dorado are still moving around the islands and up and down the channel. Again most of these guys are small with larger fish mixed in. Fly lining sardines on the drift or slow trolling live bait are gettin it done.
Captain Rigo took a group out to Bajito this week for a half day charter. Knocking it out of the park with Dorado, wahoo and what I think is our season’s first tuna. The tuna wasn’t big just a football BUT, we haven’t seen these guys all year.
The groups that are at the Mag bay camp, which as you know is our 51’ Power Cat Pacifico had mixed results. Part due to the strong north winds keeping them pinned close to shore as well as we haven’t seen the big bait balls that are normally attract the famous numbers of striped Marlin and Wahoo to the area. That being said the Yellowtail and grouper are super thick Inshore and will wear your ass down in a heart beat.
