February 17th, 2010 – Sailfish and fishing tourney

The 2nd leg of the Los Suenos Billfish tournament starts tomorrow and everyone is being hush hush about the bite.   The sailfish bite has been hit or miss this last week and there have been very few marlin around.  Most guys I have talked to have been getting anywhere from 3 to 6 sailfish per day and a mahi mahi or two.

I have company in from back home in Nebraska and we went out yesterday on a new 43′ in Quepos.  We had a really good day going 9 for 11 on sailfish.  We had 3 double hook ups and releases.  We caught most of the fish using live bait and that’s a fun way to fish for the big boys when the conditions allow.  The boat was brand new and very nice, the captain and crew were great guys and hard workers, the food was good and the beers were ice cold…my friends from Nebraska had a great time.

I am leaving this morning to go over an fish the Caribbean side for 3 days for tarpon and snook…I hope the weather holds out.  I will have email access over there and I will be in contact every evening.
