The fishing continues to be steady out of the Los Suenos Marina.  The holiday crowd hasn’t showed up yet but there are still boats going out and we are still catching fish.

I went out today with some friends from St Louis.  We fished with my friends on the Desperado.  We fished 30-40 miles out and ended the day with 10 mahi mahi in the 25-40 pound range and 5 nice yellowfin tuna in the 40-50 pound range.  I went 2 for 2 on mahi mahi with my hand line.  I also had a sailfish take a run at my handline…I am a little happy it didn’t take my bait.  Those mahi mahi by hand wore me out…I’m sure the sailfish would be a long battle.  We ended the day by helping out a 42 ft charter boat that was dead in the water.  We towed them the 20 miles home and we didn’t get back to the dock until 9.00 pm.  I guess if you are going to be stuck on a boat for 4 extra hours you can’t beat the Desperado with the direct tv, ice cold air and luxury ride.

Captain Dave on the Missbehavin took a group out Monday for a day offshore and they ended the day with 5 sailfish and 5 mahi mahi.  Today Dave caught 4 sailfish and a half dozen mahi mahi.

Captain Brandon on The Fish Whistle took a couple guys out on Monday for some offshore fly fishing.  It was their first time fly fishing for sailfish.  They raised 4 sailfish but didn’t get any to the boat….fly fishing for monster fish can be like that.

I am going out with the guys on the Dragin Fly on Thursday and will update the fishing report.
