The fishing the past week has been average for this time of year.  The charter docks have been a little slow but the boat that are going out are still catching some fish.

Captain RJ Lilley on the Predator fished the 26 rock (a submerged rock 20 miles from Los Suenos) with brothers Aaron and Bret Conant from Omaha…they caught 10 wahoo and 6 yellowfin tuna.   Everyone cleared off the rock early because it was slow but Lilley kept picking at it and was there when the bite turned on…those cornhuskers ate well.  

A group of 5 guys from Michigan went out with Captain Bill Kieldsen on the Sailfish recently hoping for some eating fish.  They ended the day with 3 tuna in the 25 pound range and a 45 pound mahi mahi.

A group from Texas fished with the guys on the Barbarrosa out of Los Suenos.  They finished the day with 4 sailfish, 4 mahi mahi and 2 yellowfin tuna.

Captain Carlos on the Scorpion in Los Suenos had a few good weeks with lots of wahoo and yellowfin tuna at the 26 rock.  They also released a handful of sailfish and a nice black marlin in the same area.

The Fish Whistle out of Los Suenos with Captain Brandon Keene at the wheel did some deep dropping in 400 feet of water.  They caught a couple nice black groupers and a couple nice silky snappers.  They then ran down to the 26 rock for a few wahoo and a big cubera snapper.

Captain Dave Mothershead on the Miss Behavin took a family from Florida out to the 26 rock and filled the fish box with 5 nice tuna, 2 wahoo and a mahi mahi in the 40 pound range.

Captain James Smith on the Dragin Fly reports a good bite one day and a little slow the next.  One group from Florida went with the guys on the Dragin Fly and released a couple sailfish, a marlin and kept a few nice tunas.  The next day they fished the same areas and they only raised a marlin and a couple sailfish.

A family from Texas went out with Captain Dana on the Hoo’s Up for a half day of bottom fishing.  They hit one of the captain’s secret spots and caught a couple broomtail groupers in the 40 pound range.
