The outstanding tuna bite of January and February continues into March, as picture perfect weather continues to plague our area . Blue skies and calm seas , with temperatures hovering in the mid 70's, and 40+ mile visibility seems to be driving the fish crazy . We've been experiencing ferocious striped marlin attacks with an occasional big blue thrown in just for good measure . Tuna continue to pile up at El Banco like truck drivers at a an all you can eat pancake house, from football size to 120+ lbs , with some 200+ pounders just recently making the scales back at the dock ! Corbetena has been giving up some incredible red snapper in the 15 - 30 pound range and enough of them to give everyone a workout and fill up the fish boxes . If that isn't enough , the inshore roosterfish bite is out of control , the big gallos are head butting each other as they attack our ranger lures like ranch dogs on a rabbit . Throw an occasional 40 to 50 lbs dorado in the mix and their isn't much more to wish for...and just when it seems like thing can't get any better does !!!

It's early morning in the bay of banderas , still dark , I'm sipping my hot coffee as we head offshore , and although I do this everyday , all I can think of is WHAT NEXT !?!? I can't wait to get out there again...!!!!

Check us out at

Saludos Amigos !
