March 1st, 2010 – a big tuna and a couple marlin

The sailfish bite stayed the same the past couple days…everyone catching 2 to 5 fish on full days and a couple guys caught 1 or 2 on half days.  Most seem to get a mahi mahi as well.

When the fishing is average I don’t get many reports from my buddies.  They are used to 6 to 10 fish this time of year so when its 2 to 6 they just don’t get excited because to them it’s slow.

There were some tuna out there today and a handful of boats got in on some 30 and 40 pounders.  The 60 Bertram hooked into a big yellowfin and fought the fish for 3 hours before getting it in…it was a 2oo plus pounder.

One of the 42′ Mavericks caught a couple marlin late last week so that’s a good sign.  The marlin bite has been slow compared to last year…it’s nice to see a few get caught and released.
