The fishing was red hot today out of the Los Suenos Marina.  The marlin bite is probably the best it has ever been according to several seasoned captains.  It seemed like everyone caught marlin today with some sailfish and mahi mahi mixed in.

Captain Brandon on the Fish Whistle caught a stripe marlin, a blue marlin (300 lbs), 4 sailfish and 5 mahi mahi today.

Captain Dave on the Missbehavin caught 2 stripe marlin,  2 sailfish , 5 mahi mahi and they missed a blue marlin.

Captain Bill on the Sailfish caught a blue marlin, 2 sailfish and 6 mahi mahi today and a strip marlin, 4 sailfish and 3 mahi mahi yesterday.

Captain Glen on the Bethina raised 4 or 5 marlin and caught at least one plus a handful of sailfish and a few mahi mahi.

Captain Rusty on the Prime Time caught a super slam, he caught a black marlin, blue marlin, stripe marlin, sailfish and mahi mahi.

Everyone but Rusty was fishing withing 30 miles.  Rusty and a handful of big boats ran 50-60 miles offshore and the rumor is they crushed the marlin with everyone seeing 5-10 marlin as well as sailfish and mahi mahi.

If a marlin is on your “fish list” get out now.  I am going out on  the Barnacle II tomorrow for a full day offshore and can’t wait to get a shot at a marlin.
