For a couple days now the Marlin bite continues to be the big story out of the Los Suenos Marina. Lots of boats reporting Striped, Black and Blue Marlin bites mixed in with a few Sails and a few Dorado. The boats are fishing between 25-35 miles out towards the Craters. It seems like the boats are averaging 3 or 4 Sails, a Dorado or two and a Marlin bite. Several boats released more than one Marlin.
Captain Tim on the “Tres Amigos” caught a Marlin, five Sailfish and a few Dorado.
The guys on the “Macushla” caught a few Sail, a few Dorado and they released 2 Striped Marlin…one about 250 pounds…and they raised a Nice Blue Marlin.
Captain Brandon on the “Fish Whistle” had some clients that wanted to bottom fish at the 26. Brandon reported green water and a slow bite at the 26…The Captain did save the day by trolling the dropoff home and picking up 5 Sailfish. The day before RJ and the guys on the “Iron Trader” fished the 26 and caught dozens of fish …they caught Silky Snapper, Cubera Snapper, Dogtooth Snapper, Roosterfish, Wahoo, various Jacks and some other fish…Sorry I quit listening.
Everyone is enjoying the Marlin bite. They enjoy it so much when you ask them for a fishing report they just want to talk about the Marlin, you can’t get any good info out of anybody…it’s just Marlin Marlin Marlin.
If catching a Marlin is on your “bucket list” then now is a good time to go. The bite is close and consistent. get out while the gettin is good.
