Today we had some fantastic catches which was nice to see, as the water had turned a bit cold and we did not do that well last week, but today was a whole different ball game. We saw the biggest dorado that we have seen in months come in aboard La Brisa, caught by Robert Katusak from Brownsville, Texas. The fish was caught a long way up the coast at Destiladeres on a guacamaya lure and was around the 40 lb mark. Shown in the photo also is Captain Rey Winkler, on the left, who has been with Pisces since he was young and skinny, 29 years ago.
Another boat that did really well was Rebecca, who caught and released five striped marlin and a jack crevalle, making them our top boat today. The lucky angler was Jon Svendson, from Scottsdale, Arizon. They caught the marlin on ballyhoo and the jack crevalle on a lure; the water temperature was 78 degrees. Captain J.R is on the left, angler in the center and deckhand Luis Cota on the right.
Creighton Lawhead is one of Pisces most faithful clients and probably caught more marlin with us than any other single angler. Creighton from Carlsbad, California fishing with Brandon Yount each released a marlin today. Shown in the photo is Creighton holding a 150 lb striped marlin with deckhand Martin Gonzalez in the foreground.
