- Last couple of weeks we'd get a big dorado, 30 plus, every couple of days, but nothin' consistent enough.Yesterday we had 4 over 40. While we did have 6 boats out, and this does not constitute a full on bite, it is indication of steady improvement, and in the right direction. Most of these fish have come from the buoys, but Marc, who just got our of the army, had a 44lb. fish on a marlin jig 1/2 mile off Punta Perico on Thursday.
- We've had a fair amount of striped marlin throughout the last six months, a steady supply with several of you catching your first, ah, you'll always remember that. That action has warmed some, and one of our guys spent 2 hours on a mid 300's blue marlin two days ago. He was fishing for dorado, and as such using 40lb. line. As outgunned as Barney Fife at a Crips picnic, he had fun, but lost that one.
- Roosters over 60, with a couple in the 80's, have been readily available the last 10 days or so. They've been coming at the island beaches and from the light house to the hotel.
And now to the subject mentioned in the title above. The Right Reverential Fritz, Conquering Lion of Holland, the Duke of the Dutch, Oracle of the Temple of the Wooden Shoes, is down here, sputtering and waving his hands. He scored our first good tuna catch of the year yesterday, taking 4 to 40, and losing 2 more, using both cedar plugs and 5" feathers. When you need leading, you look to a leader, and once again Fritz has done it. They don't call him He Who Must be Understood for nothing my friends.
So you can tell that things are starting to heat up down here. It took a little longer than normal this year to get the kindling to catch, but some of the big logs are starting to spit and sizzle, and you can't stand quite as near as just last week. Get out your tongs, and maybe your thongs, and come play with us.
