We caught 3 quadruple headers and busted off a blue marlin today. That didn't make the scoreboard.
At least we're consistent

14 yesterday, 13 today, right in the middle of the pack. Pretty good charter fishing, but this don't cut it with this competition. Looking for a big day tomorrow.
why no fishing reports?

Because I'm still holding my breath hoping that this great fishing will continue. Consistent double digit days on the sails with a couple of blue marlin releases last week. Not many tunas or dorado around, but the grouper fishing has picked up so we have fresh fish for dinner.
starting the last leg of the Los Suenos Triple Crown tomorrow. Wish us luck.
still going good with consistent double digit days

Since the slow bite right before the tournament, things have really fired off with consistent "double digit" days. In fact, the last 3 days we've made it back to the dock early with everyone on the boat having several turns on the rod and heading to the pool for sunset.
We're just holding our breath that this amazing fishing continues.

Day 1, we did excellent on our hook up ratio, but we just didn't get the bites.
Day 2 and 3, we actually got enough bites to be competitive, but as an angling team, we sucked, connecting with less than half of our opportunities. It was a very humbling experience. We have analyzed the tapes and video, consulted with the captain and other professionals and from this experience I really do believe that we have learned a lot.
Instead of being "as lost as an arrow in a wheat field" we are slowly becoming "as lost as a ball in high weeds".
Congrats to our friend Tony on Team Galati who won this leg of the Los Suenos Triple Crown with 80 sailfish releases in 3 days. Second and third place were determined by 3 minutes, each boat with 69 sailfish and 2 marlin. Both boats have teams of Carolina boys and girls. The Trophy Box finished in 3rd place, behind the Tranquilo and the Cofers.
4th place was also some Carolina boys with Capt. John Bayliss on the Tarheel with 69 sails and 1 marlin.
The Tarheel leads the Trophy Box by only 1 sailfish for the 3 tournament series that comes to a head in Leg 3 of the Los Suenos Triple Crown at the end of March.
Maybe we can improve our hook up ratio and be competitive in the last of the series.
