The guys got some new leader line yesterday so today they are re rigging most of lures that are lucky with big game fish. There is a 6 hour private charter on tomorrow on the Bertram 31 and the client is looking for Blue Marlin.
Mr & Mrs A just concluded their three day fishing charter with us. They stayed at Sandals La Toc and although the fishing was not as lively as we hoped their was still some good action. They chartered Reel Affair, our Bertram 38 and started every morning at 7am. We caught our biggest Wahoo to date which weighed 66 pounds, and we also had a White Marlin which provided some good entertainment. Fishing along most of the islands west coast also gave them to chance to see most of the island point of interest including Pigeon Island, Marigot Bay, Soufriere and the famous Piton Mountains.
The first week of January slowed down offshore so the guys have been fishing closer to the south coast of the island in the areas of Soufriere, Chosieul and Vieux – Fort. There has been no shortage of action, fishing only about 1/4 mile off the coast. Plenty of Barracuda, Spanish Mackerel and 5 – 8 pound Black Fin Tuna ( who fight like fish twice their size) have kept our guests happy. Success rates this past week have been around 90%. The last two days we had guests from Coconut Bay Resort and Spa who caught some really nice sized Barracuda.
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.
Natural Mystic, our Bertram 31 finally got its first proper Blue Marlin fight today. It had a total of 3 hook ups during the half day charter with a husband and wife team staying at the Jalousie Plantation. They had quite a fight with the last 250 pound Marlin before it was time to head back to shore.
Mystic Man Tours is pleased to introduce the newest member to its fleet, a 31ft Bertram Express Cruiser. The Bertram 31 is arguably one of the most famous modern boat designs ever built and has achieved a near cult status around the world. The boat is in immaculate condition and will now join its big brother ” Reel Affair”, our Bertram 38 to offer sport fishing charters off the coast of the island. The previous owner said that it has been a very lucky boat and has landed him many many fish. We are all waiting to see how long before it can match or top Reel Affairs’ 900 + pound Blue Marlin which was landed earlier this year.
