Man o man , I love the fall and winter ! There's been lot of excellent offshore action......we're still catching lots of big yellowfin tuna up to 250lbs , the marlin bite has been sensational - highlighted by a 91/2 hour fight with a monster black a few weeks ago - congratulations to angler Gregg Booher for hanging tough on that huge fish , hooking up at 9;30 am and releasing her at 6:30 p.m.'s the even more insane part - Gregg fought the fish on stand - up gear the whole time !!!!!! - and even more incredible was that the behemouth black was hooked up on an Alutecnos - 20 Gorilla , matched to a Stalker 30lbs class Frigate series rod , 80 lbs test Jerry Brown hollow core spectra with a 30 foot Seaguar 100 lbs test fluorocarbon leader , 6/0 owner gorilla live bait hook - bridled to a live goggle-eye !!!!! We were targeting tuna with

kite baits and flat lines drifting over the north ledge of Roca Corbetena when the suburban - size marlin inhaled the gog !

We couldn't believe what we saw after we set the hook and saw her erupt out of the water !!! Another incredible thing was that when we released her she was as green as when we first hooked up - truly a once - in - lifetime animal !!!!!

The heat and humidity are gone , we've got smooth blue ocean everyday with dry 75 degree weather , so if you can sneak away call us and book yourself an unforgettable fishing trip ! You can expect to hook up with big beefy yellowfin tuna , dorado, sailfish , marlin , wahoo , and big mean cubera snapper......all on the same day !!!!! Inshore action is great as well with lots of huge roosterfish , jack crevalle , pargo , and red snapper - We hope to be hookin' you up soon .....!!!
