April 10, 2010 – sailfish bite red hot



The sailfish bite blew up today offshore about 35 miles in front of Los Suenos and Jaco Beach.

The 42′ Maverick released 15 sailfish today with a family group.

The 36′ Topaz released 29 sailfish today with a couple from south Texas.  The captain said they must have raised 45 sailfish, he also said they went through 75 ballyhoo.  These people are fishing 3 more days…they may be worn out.

The 32′ Irwin Forbes had a single angler hooking his own fish and they released 13 sailfish today.

Looks like we got our boat legal just in time.  My buddies are going out on our boat tomorrow and I will probably try and get out there Monday or Tuesday if the bite holds. I have tomorrow reserved for a little work, a little bbq, some colds beers and the final round of the Masters.

The pics above are from some friends that recently fished….the sailfish expelling some big squid from its belly is a great pic.  They were not using squid for bait.
