Some action on “Natural Mystic” our Bertram 31.
April so far has been one of our best fishing months this year because of the wide variety of fish being caught. The Dorado we have been catching are roughly between 20 – 30 pounds which makes for very good fighting, especially when we get multiple strikes! On Sunday we had 4 huge Dorado hook ups’ at once. They were all landed and weighed in at 96 pounds combined.
The Wahoo have been coming up for the bait in pairs and there is no greater sound than a screaming reel that has just snapped the outrigger. These Wahoo can swim at up to 60 mph. The average size of the wahoo have been around 40 pounds. We land one out of every two Wahoo strikes and they put up a really good fight.
On average the guys are getting Marlin and Sailfish hook ups 3 times a week with the Sailfish averaging about 80 pounds and Blue Marlin between 350 – 500 pounds.
On our last full day fishing excursion “Natural Mystic” our Bertram 31 had 2 Marlins, landed 6 Dorado and 3 Wahoo.
Natural Mystic had a very busy day yesterday on its’ half day fishing excursion. After an encounter with a Blue Marlin in the region of 300 pounds, the 6 six guests on board, some of which who had never gone deep sea fishing before landed a total of 6 beautiful Dorado ( Mahi Mahi ). We were really happy that they had a successful day since it was their first time.
Not as much action as yesterday but still a beautiful day to be out on the water fishing. On our half day charter this morning we had a total of 5 Dorados and 1 Blackfin tuna. We had no Blue Marlin strikes today however we had some very satisfied customers. The group of 4 from Ladera took some of the fish back to the hotel. Wonder how the chef is going to prepare it tonight……
