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.

The fishing just got better out of the Los Suenos Marina.  The reports of raising 40 fish were confirmed.  It seems that the guys on the Desperado released 28 some Sailfish out by the craters.

The word on the street today was about the Marlin bite.  Lots of boats picking up Striped and Blue Marlin less than 25 miles out.  We have gone a month without a big Marlin bite…but today things changed.

Captain Jeremy on the “R&J”  caught a Blue Marlin, a Striped Marlin, 2 Dorado and 2 Sailfish.

Captain Dana on the “Hoo’s your Daddy” caught a Striped Marlin, 4 Sailfish and a 50 pound Bull Dorado.  His clients wanted to jump in the water at the end of the day.  Dana had pull everything in but one ballyhoo.  While his customers were swimming Captain Dana’s line came tight and he hooked up a big Sailfish.  The couple quickly slid through the transom door like a couple of seals ad landed the fish.

Captain Bill on the “Sailfish” banged them out going 12 for 20 on Sails today and 22 for 33 yesterday.  He was anxious to chase the Marlin bite tommorow.

Captain RJ fished with the guys on the “Iron Lady” and released 3 Marlin, a few Sails and a couple Dorado.

The fishing out of the Los Suenos Marina continues to be great. The Sailfish bite is still the star with everyone raising double digit fish and releasing 6-16 Sailfish per day. Most of the boats are picking up a Dorado or two and several boats got into some nice Tuna action. There are rumors this morning of boats raising 40 Sailfish out by the craters…I am trying to confirm those reports.

Captain Dana on the “Hoo’s your Daddy” put together a combo trip for his clients. They went bottom fishing in the morning and caught 3 nice Snappers and a couple Roosterfish, they then decided to run offshore and troll, they released 4 Sailfish. The guys liked the combo trip so much they are doing it again tomorrow.

Captain David on the “Barbarrosa” took a group out recently that wanted to catch some eating fish. They went 2 for 3 on Sailfish but caught few 40 pound Mahi Mahi and a couple 40 plus pound Tuna. They will be eating good for the next few days.

Captain Brandon on the “Fish Whistle” has gone inshore and bottom fishing the past few days and reports that the inshore water is blue and the bite is good.  He has been catching Roosterfish, Amber Jack and several different types of Snapper.

Captain Dave on the “Missbehavin” took Tattoo Joe out for a fun day of fishing. They didn’t go out very far and they didn’t fish very hard but they ended up releasing 6 nice Sailfish. I heard Joe was setting his own hooks…good job Joe.

The Sailfish bite out of the Los Suenos Marina continues to be solid even with the full moon. The fish seemed to have moved to the west and the bite was anywhere between 20-30 miles out and everyone was catching Sailfish.  There were some Mahi Mahi and Marlin bites as well…lots of guys were looking for the Yellowfin Tuna but no luck.

The 2nd leg of the Los Suenos Signature Billfish Tournament ended with a bang yesterday. The 3rd day of the tourney was the best day with 327 fish being caught. Those big numbers shook up the leader board.

Congrats to the guys on the “Muy Caliente” for taking first place with 4 Marlin and 23 Sailfish…pretty good for a 31 foot boat in a tournament with lots of big boats.

Congrats also to the “Spanish Fly”, they were 2nd with 2 Marlin and 29 Sailfish and the big “Missbehavin” was 3rd with 3 Marlin and 23 Sails.

The winning numbers were not as high as expected but the overall numbers were very good. There were 729 Sailfish caught and 56 Marlin caught in the 3 day event.
