Pacfic Sail Fish- All year round. Peak months are Late Oct to early June. Averages can be 20 sailfish releases to 80 plus on a ''great'' day. Add a hand full of dorado, a marlin or two, and you will have an untouchable day.
Pacific Marlin- Blue, Black & Stripe all year round potentially. Late spring to December seems to be the best months. Stripe marlin show up in Oct and stick around until December/January. August has been a great month for blues lately throughout the region.
Dorado- All year round. Although smaller in June, they are thick promoting a good marlin diet. Oct until May dorado can be 30 to 50 lbs!
Tuna- The bite can be close at 10 miles, but usually 30 plus miles are the great numbers. 30 plus lbs and fearless. August until December holds a good tuna bite. However, year round tuna fishing is possible.
Inshore- When the water clarity is clear and the tide is up, the rooster fishing can be GREAT! Along with snapper, and late night snook fishing just outside of the lodge doors in the channel. Spainsh macks and Jacks around shrimp boats are great fun as well.
NOTE* All clients will be VERY involved in the bait and switch practices of bill fishing. By your third day, the mates will only be instructed to assist you with the bait rigging and teasing of the fish. You are on your own to hook the fish and free spool on a big hungry sail.
