First seamount trip of the year on the Dragin Fly

I've lectured about not posting or promoting the crazy sailfish numbers that we have been having the last couple of years out of Los Suenos.   It's a real shame to have a group of guys who are thrilled with their fishing trip, each person catching 4 or 5 sails, only to be "disappointed" because they find out that someone else caught more than they caught.    Anything over 10 sails in a day is a "double digit" or "XX" day.   We are omitting the numbers in hopes of keeping everyone's expectations in check.

I fear the same problem of unrealistic expectations can occur with our seamount trips, where we spend up to 4 nights and 3 full days over 100 miles offshore in search of blue marlin.    Anywhere in the world, if you catch a blue marlin, you've had a great day.   Many people have spent countless days and hundreds of thousands of dollars without ever catching one.   What is happening off the coast of Costa Rica right now is the best blue marlin fishing that anyone has ever experienced on this planet Earth.  Period. We are thrilled to be right in the middle of it.....

Three days fishing:
