    Blue Marlin Reports Here

    Wow. Long day on the water, but a fun one without a lot of production. Covered about 150 miles. Went out of SD, targeting blues. I went to the bank 4 miles east of the Coronado's and got bit off on a marlin jig by a smaller size wahoo at 6:45am. Proceeded to the Kidney bank and then to San...

    Wahoo Spread

    I never have tried spectra. Hmmm. Good thought. It was asked above if the wire effects the action. I personally don't think it effects it that much, except on X-Raps. I think the reason why Rancho Leonero uses the Flouro when wahoo are slow to bite is more of a visual thing and for the same...

    Wahoo Spread

    While I can't disagree with anything that has been said above, run the heaviest fluorocarbon you can find as leader. 120lb is preferred. Seriously, you can't believe the difference it makes as opposed to wire, especially on the X-Raps. I've never been bit off, but then again have never been...

    Head North or South of Point Loma this Weekend? Advantages to Both

    Guys, I'm from Colorado and am a private boater. My boat is in San Diego at Kona Kai. I routinely fish Mexican waters and have all the right documents, passports, etc to be legit. Last 2 trips we had limits of Dorado. My dad is coming out with me this weekend and I'm willing to run as far...

    Gordo Banks tackle/lure advice? or Los Barriles?

    My wife and I were in the Los Barriles area 2 weeks ago. Got some Toro, 1 marlin and a few roosters. The ONlY GUYS that were getting roosters were in front of the Cabo Riviera marina by slow trolling live bait. I tried surf casting and then decided that after 4 hours my trigger finger was a...

    Nados Halibut and Yellowtail

    Good job Cap. I was there with my wife and a buddy yesterday and we didn't specialize in the size our quantity you did. We got one 18-21 lb. yellow 5 more 6-10 lb fish. The surprise of the day is we found a lobster marker holding Calico. Got 2 of them. Wish I had your fish, but I guess...

    Cancun Fishing Charter Recommendation

    Vagabundo is right that there isn't a whole heck of a lot there. Its not like Cabo or anything. Cancun proper is pretty dry on charter boats unless you want to catch barracuda all day (yawn). Been there, done that. HOWEVER, Isla Mujeres is a 20 minute ferry ride across and holy smokes man...

    A classic colored set (with a surprise ending)

    Bill, I'll be there on May 1st to pick up the rods! It will be a short trip, as we head back to Colorado on May 4th, but plan on doing some inshore fishing while we're there. If the offshore bite picks up we may target marlin when we're there too. I can't wait to see the rods in person...
