We are closing out the green season and just beginning the tournament season, and we started it off with a bang! The deep blue Pacific waters are filled with amazing marine life. Dorado (mahi-mahi) was the fish everyone was gunning for in the first of the Marina Pez Vela tournament series. The Banco Promerica Cup 2019 was our golden moment, a first-place finish with a 28lb Dorado. The tournament was for Dorado, Wahoo, and Tuna. The water was calm and the debris from the rainy season had decreased sharply. Making the Dorado’s favorite grounds a little scarce but we managed to still pull in a winning fish. We were one of 11 boats competing for the coveted title of champion, the competition was fierce. Led by our fantastic Captain Cachi, we took the top spot for the Sea Hag. Second Place going to The Hooker with a 25lb Dorado. Third place went to The Good Day with a 23lb Dorado.
We welcomed our clients from Texas, and they were rewarded with 3 Sailfish, 1 Blue Marlin, and 8 Dorado. One of our female clients reeled in her first-ever Sailfish during this trip. Our first mate Mako, served up fresh ceviche using some of the Dorado, while on the boat. Our clients from Florida caught 3 Sailfish and 4 Yellowfin Tuna on their outing. First Mate Mako served up some fresh sashimi with their freshly caught Tuna right on the boat that day. Nothing like a nice size Yellowfin hitting your line and taking off. Unfortunately, we missed 2 but were able to pull in 4, you must be on your game with these quick-hitting Tuna.
Our Sea Hag is always willing to help a fellow Charter Boat in need, she is a 35ft Cabo who has been maintained as a private boat. Making luxury charter fishing affordable to the casual fisherman. We were available to pick up a last-minute charter that put our clients on the fish. They were able to bring in a big bull Dorado along with 3 others and 2 nice size yellow fin tuna. Captain Cachi was quite disappointed they didn’t catch this monster Mahi during the tournament. They also had plenty of fish to take home even after Mako serving up fresh sashimi on board.
With the high season upon us, we book up fast. Cachi, our Captain, and his team are ready to take you to the prime locations to get your adrenaline pumping with massive catches. He will make sure your fishing experience is one you will never forget. The Pacific Ocean and all her beauty have so much for you to see and experience. Signs of a great fishing season are the amount of fish being caught daily. Viewing a pod of dolphins is always good luck!
