Sorry I didn’t write last week, I was on vacation! But everything remained the same without me, just check the numbers of fish. We actually had a number of fisherman during my absence.

Not bad right? The tuna continued to be in the 20 to 50 lbs range, however when the wind blew for a few days it was difficult to locate the porpoise. Billfish action took up the slack when the tuna action slowed for the anglers. Dorado action was sporadic with the fish only found on a couple of days last week, nothing consistent, just two decent days.

This week we had a large group of 30 people from Tamaulipas. Fishing on eight boats theyu racked up: 1 blue marlin, 6 striped marlin, 10 sailfish, 1 wahoo and 3 dorado. For most of them it was their first time catching billfish (blue, striped and sailfish) and of course first wahoo. We have some pictures of this group from their awards dinner, not from the fish unfortunately.
