What a great day on the water, being 100% on hook ups always makes the day go quick thatís for sure. The fish count for the day was 3 for 3 on Sailfish and 2 for 2 on Mahi-Mahi. With the moon the cycle it is in we knew we could get the fish to the boat, Bertrams raise fish and when your crew follows up with a 100% hook up rate!!!..... It just makes for great day. The day didnít start out very positive with the clients being skunked on a different boat on Monday and wanted to do inshore instead, but we talked them into going offshore, sometimes you just have to go when the moon is right. They were rewarded as 2 of the clients took home the leaders from the first ever Quepos Sailfish, and have the leader and hook to go with the pictures.
Great day to be on the water, with the moon the way it is we were expecting a great bite today, if wasn't real great but there was some great catches in it. The totals were 1 for 3 on Sails and a perfect 1 for 1 on Mahi. Both fish released were first catches for both clients so everyone went home with a smile. Dan from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada was lucky enough to land his firstcatch in Quepos, Costa Rica and it was a beautiful Sailfish. Matt from England also Checked his Catch a Fish in Quepos, Costa Rica card by landing a great Mahi. If you know or ever meet hm and he doesn't admidt that that Mahi gave him a good work out, we my friend have the video to prove it.
Quepos Deep Sea Fishing Charters Report January 21-27 2011
The Marlin bite still continues here in Quepos, Costa Rica with most of the boats collecting 3-5 Sails in a day and some are getting lucky enough to still get a chance to play with a Marlin. The Harry Grey Fly Fishing Tournament Starts on the 24th so we wish all the boats in that great tournament luck. The Bluewater****2 got 3 Sails on the 24th, Blue Pearl 2 got 3 Sails on the 27th, with the moon getting smaller we hope that the bite picks up here and we get a few double diget reports here in the next couple weeks.
Quepos Fishing Report January 20 2011
Clients today were excited to get out as 1 of them had never caught a billfish before, and as we circulated on the marina fuel dock and were hearing the bad reports yesterday, knowing that the full moon was last night saying that the other Captains spirits were low was an understatement. With the knowlege that th clients were getting on the Mar1 a 31' Bertram fish raising machine, with a Captain at the helm with 25+ years experience here in Quepos all we could do was wish them luck. When they returned with huge smiles we knew that everything worked out, 2 for 2 on Sailfish, 1 of the 2 was in the 160# range and was a beautifull fish. here are some pics of her
