The bite seems to have turned on just in time for the first leg of the Los Suenos Signature Billfish Series.  This past week has been windy so there was a lot of water that was not being pre fished for the tourney.   The sailfish bite was hot if you were in the right spot…several boats had more than 25 sailfish bites.

My buddies on the 42′ Maverick are tied with The Cerveza for the lead with 13 sailfish and 1 marlin.  The Lady Columbo and the Hook are tied for 3rd…Lady Columbo has 12 sails and a marlin and the Hook has 17 sailfish.  There are 4 of the 42′ Mavericks in the top 10…those boats raise fish.

There are 42 boats in the tourney and on day one they caught a total of 284 sailfish and 7 marlin.  Those marlin are going to be the golden ticket again this year.
