The fishing has been a little up and down over the last few days. There was a good bite 3 days ago, I heard of at least 7-8 fish raised for the fleet with 3 nice one’s released. “Omega” pulled the hook on a big fish they called over 900# and “Cabo San Jaou” caught 1 from 2 bites releasing a 700 pounder. Yesterday the whole fleet was out and there was only 2 fish raised. “Balancal” let a nice one go and “Xareu” pulled the hook after their fish swam around a fish trap float. Very unlucky when you consider how long you may have to wait for a bite in this place. Today we took my wife Lisa fishing and she caught her first atlantic blue marlin. After a late start we decided to fish in front of the marina. Jonboy started marking a few small bait schools and it didn’t take long for us to raise a nice fish around 700#. The big girl had a hard time trying to eat the lure and after a very clumsy bite we had her on for a short while before pulling  the hook.A little disappointed we headed back to the bait and quickly raised another one. This time the fish ate the lure the right way and after a 20 min fight we released a healthy 550 pounder in great condition. Lisa was stoked and Jonboy and I were very happy with her efforts in the chair.  After lunch we missed  another fish around 500# topping off a great day!  Also today “Katherine B” let a big one go around 1000#.
