    PV trip starting from today

    That's a negative! Maybe bring a hoodie for early morning on the boat but that's it! I do wear long sleeves when on the water, but only to block sun. Short, t's and flip flops! I've been down here 2 1/2 years and have not worn shoes once!!

    PV trip starting from today

    Excellent report! We also made the trip up and around San Juanito last week and saw no tuna up there. Weather was super rough the night we went and ended up on the east side of the islands, out of the weather. I was stopped by the navy for the first time and they were suupper cool!! checked...

    San Blas Nayarit???

    San Blas is nice, you'll have a great time. Man, May though is a long way from now. Typically the water cools a lil by then and it could be a lil green inshore. Isla Isabel is a good boat ride north, but there are nice amberjack to be had! Dorado are always in the mix and Snapper should be good...

    Different island, same results! Big yellows out there!

    Well, it's a little quiet in tuna town, but there's some slug yellowtail to be had. Spent a couple days at one of our islands this last weekend and we didn't see a fish under 30 lbs. Now is the time to get some if you like the big Jack's! And on a side note, Saturday we had the big boys blow...

    Marias Isla Prison Closure Announcement

    They are still patrolling!! And seem to be a lil less forgiving with a couple boats taken to mazatlan. We just returned and fished far enough off that we weren't harassed. Fish are there, but plugged with micro squid. They bit what we were using though!

    Actually the big one did exactly that! While I was loading my gun. They come in on the flashers we throw, and on our fins, like a giant lure!

    Tuna are overrated!

    No I don't, but I do respect em, unlike many entitled, shit don't stink gringos (American and Canadian). My buddy brought that down and I put it on for fun. Don't like it? Tough shit!

    Island Bluefin

    Did a overnight trip Saturday and Sunday and man was it fun. Water was a lil cool at 60 degrees but nice and blue. The yellows ran from 10 to 31 lbs. and we took 20 amongst 7 guys, and I shot 7, including a 30 and the 31. Heard a ton of croaking, so I grabbed my 3 band 60 inch gun and headed...

    It's not just the gringo's!! Marla's left out the part when they all got taken in and processed in the latest "Mas Cows" post!! You play, you pay! And fish are off the second island. Far enough off that it shoudn't be an issue

    Ya, I don't use a reel. All my guns are set up as breakaway. Had a reel jam on a big yellow at SCI years ago and a tug o war ensued. I almost had to let go of the gun before it tore off. Made it to the surface with lights flashing in my brain! Scary All the footage you see is from my buddies...

    We went with a big ass cooler and reliable bag full of ice. Actually taco'd the hull of my 18 foot rib on the way home.

    Same spot as the previous post of mine. Didn't see any tuna today, but there were some quality yellow's around! Dove a spot at Nic today and was a lil disappointed.
