Captains report Feb 11, 2014
Feb 11, 2014
Based on what we are seeing on the news here, most of North America has been having a brutal winter. Snow, record cold, and ice are wreaking havoc to our northern neighbors that share our continent. The exact opposite is true for the very southern part of the continent where we are, Mexico!
Our weather has been beautiful with balmy mid-80’s F highs and comfortable low 70’s nighttime temperatures. To make it even better, Mother Nature is tossing in an extra by sending us what looks like a good early bite. Last week we released the first Blue Marlins of the season. Santiago on the Reel Stripper struck first by releasing an approximately 300 lb. blue and then Rambo on the Reel Screamer released a second blue weighing in at about 175 lbs. Most other boats have released at least one sailfish and Caballo on the Wild Bill released a white marlin on Saturday. Let’s see what this week brings!
The Wahoo bite has also remained strong. With the exception of one day last week where there was a strong current change that hampered the bite due to cloudy water, wahoo have been a regular feature on the dock, especially behind the Puffin where Captain Rocque Koo has found a “lugar secreto” (secret place) to fish. I’m not sure how secret it really is as a lot of other boats are bringing them in as well, but he does seen to have a few more than most.
With that said, I’m going to wrap this up and head out to see what I can find with Captain Beto on the Sea Phantom. My Primo Locos are in so it’s time to head out for some fun in the sun and see if we can catch dinner.
Until next time, stay safe, stay warm, and we hope to see you soon at Captain Ricks in beautiful Puerto Aventuras.
We're here, wish you were too!
