trout freeze. Got reports?
red hot marlin bite continues
Good that the marlin bite is continuing with consistent shots at grand slams. Almost daily multiple blue marlin bites with scattered shots at striped marlin and more sails showing each day. The best of the bite has been up on the edge, so we have not ventured out to find the tunas lately.

When you see 'em, you gotta catch 'em
Friday, January 19, 2018
We caught three big fish yesterday. A big blue marlin, a big striped marlin and a big sailfish, good for a boat grand slam and along with a couple extra sails, good for about 10th place in day 1 of the Los Suenos Triple Crown. Wish us a lot of marlin today, we are within striking distance of the stage.

Party like a Rock Star
Day 1 we only caught a blue marlin and a sail which kept us in the running for the billfish division but the 30 pound tuna we caught was good for 3rd place in that category.
Day 2 we start off with a pair of sails and a blue marlin. After catching the blue, James picks up and runs to a school of tuna to catch a quick fish before heading back to the billfish. This is a brave move, but considering that only 5 boats caught tuna the day before, with another 30 pounder, we could lock up that tuna cash. We quickly caught another 30 pounder, this one the only tuna weighed for the day, so good for the tuna daily and the agregate tuna money.
Back on the billfish grounds, 5 minutes after putting them out, we caught a 2nd blue marlin which temporarily put us in the lead for the billfish division. Our lead evaporated in the afternoon and our fate was sealed with the striped marlin that I missed late in the day, potentially good for 2nd place, instead we settled for 7th.
The tuna we had for dinner that night was pretty good, worth about $750/pound.

Merry CHRISTmas and sorry for the slack posts
I have been slack in posting, will follow up with some pics from the past week or so. Trout fishing has been good at the beach and in the river. Up the river, the stripers have been a good addition to the trout bite.
I've been in Miami to enjoy the smell of Cuban roasted pigs, big families and adorable kids. Over the past 15 years being a part of that family I have seen some of those kids grow into men and women who are now having kids of their own. It is amazing to see what they have accomplished and the value that they have added to our country in only one generation.
Sounds like things have fired off in Costa Rica with a good show of sailfish arriving, continued daily multiple shots at marlin and dorado and tuna for dinner. I think it's going to be a great year and we still have some good boats open, this is from a customer of ours today:

Wow. A lot of crocs
Raul and I were debating if the one between us and the other side of the river was larger than 3 meters. I was debating on whether I was going across until the one we didn't see surfaced and ended all debates. It was definitely a 10 footer and I was not crossing the river
