Good times

No money and no trophies, but we had our chances.   50 sailfish bites in 3 days, saw a few marlin but couldn't get them to nibble.  Had a really good time. 
Congrats to our friends on the Big Oh for 2nd place.

heart surgery

 We lost a day, but got it back together, lose screw in the oil pump.   Fortunately Capt. Greg and the Tres Amigos stepped up with a blue marlin release and 5 sails for our customers.

much slower this week for us

But signs of a new wave are on the horizon.   Only saw 3 sails yesterday on conventional.   After three days of fly fishing we were hoping putting a little more meat in the water would raise some more fish.   Our fly guys did catch a few, but hope to be able to show the customers arriving this week a little more.

double digits again

We bettered 18, catching 21 on the last day.  Our 3 day total was 57 sails out of about 77 bites.   Really, really good fishing and we showed a lot of improvement as a team.   Hopefully we can get lucky and convert on the last leg of the Los Suenos Triple Crown next month.

Congrats to the Sea Angel who gave us a clinic on Friday.  Also Tony with Team Galati for his big win, Fish Tank for an amazing two leg performance and John Bayliss, always a class act who makes me proud to be a Tarheel.

Hopefully these double digit days will continue, they did again today.   That's how we refer to really big days,  "double digits".   Catching a dozen billfish or a dozen big drum in a day is big deal. 

Everyone measures success differently and we do not post the details of catches more than a double digit day.   No sense in setting unrealistic expectations and holding up the success of one day as a benchmark for someone else.

18 again

It just took a lot more bites to get there.    Thank you Capt. James for giving us the opportunity to be competitive.  Good time and learning all the time.

Need a big day tomorrow........

Wow.  Caught 18 sailfish in one day and only half way to the lead.   that is some good fishing and a great day no matter what story the scoreboard tells.
