Overall Catch Success Rate 95.6%
BILLFISH: Happy Independence Day Mexico! We celebrated this week with a great report, 95.6% overall success rate. The water temperature raised a little bit making it hard to find Billfish, we didn’t see any Striped Marlin but we caught some Blue marlins and Sailfish. “Andrea” caught a 200 lbs Blue marlin and released a very decent Sailfish estimated at 100 lbs for Lewis Akin and Richard Grounnof from Cleveland, TX. Same day “Attitude Adjutment” released a 110 lbs Sailfish and landed 4 Dorados for Warren Chapman from San Mateo, CA. Laura Jones from Cleveland TX released a 190 lbs Blue marlin aboard the “Andrea” two awesome days for the Akin Party aboard the Andrea. On the 15th, everyone but “La Brisa” was back at the dock, nice day for Yellow fin tuna and dorado but no billfish, around 4pm the captain called in to report, 3 young ladies were fighting for a Blue marlin for 4 hours already, when they finally got it next to the boat, they released him and kept a 30 lbs tuna for lunch. The Blue marlin was estimated at 360 lbs, anglers were Cassie Rodgers from Tacoma, WA, Cass Andersen from Riverfalls, WI, and Amanda Hirsch from Maplewood, MN. A total of 5 billfish were caught, 4 were released.
