The 2008 – 2009 season is moving into full swing now and you can expect the action to be hot through next June. The weather is beautiful right now with very comfortable and dry conditions, which will remain through most of April.
We welcomed the Randy Peifer Group along with sons Will and Jason for their first visit to Pacific Fins. Fishing aboard “Fishy Business”, with Capt. Tito, the first day they raised 22 sails and released 15. They also added 3 large dorados. Day two they raised 7 sails, released 4 and added a nice 200lb blue marlin. Some beautiful yellowfin tuna in the 40 to 50 pound range are also being caught and of course these usually end up on the dinner table that same night!
Larry Ekey returned for his second visit and brought friends Tim Bennett, Rick Rennell and Brock Walls. The first day they fished on “Hooked Up” and released 6 sails. The second day they switched to our new 50ft Topaz “Captain Hook” and released 6 more sails and fought a blue thought to be around 500lbs but lost it near the boat.
Yesterday, aboard the Captain Hook, the Lee Orgeron group saw excellent sailfish action. The group raised 16 sails, had 13 bites and managed to release 9.
The marlin bite continues to be strong and there a lot of blues in the 200 to 600 pound range being caught every day right now. December is usually one of our better months for marlin and this year that is no exception. (Filed by Pacific Fins, Guatemala)
