Hello guys and gals, well lets start this off with the good news...Like I said in the last newsletter the fishing is good and now its even getting better...The Dorado and Bill fish are back and in numbers...Lots of little peanuts which means if done correctly will be lots of bigger fish...Hopefully some are releasing the peanuts and young females for the future...Quote from Dolphin Research:
The species matures at an early age, estimated as early as 3 months. Dolphin are known to be sexually mature as small as 14 inches in fork length, with all fish reaching sexually maturity by the time they are 22 inches in fork length. The presence of very young dolphin almost year-round in the Florida Current, coupled with almost continuous spawning observed in some captive fish, may indicate these fish spawn continuously throughout their life. A Florida study calculated that a female 39 inches in fork length produces roughly 555,000 eggs per spawn.With a .2% to a 1.2% survival rate...
On with the fishing anyway lots of Dorado and word of Billfish stacked up in 2s, 3s and 4s. Capt. Anaya on JonJen 2 got nice little bulls and released some peanuts. No marlin today. Two other boats limited on dorado, while other boats at San Pedro Island reported lots of fish but said the yellowtail continue to be very finicky. Talked with a couple of divers who got 4 nice yellowtail and one 100-pound grouper and they said there are lots at the Island. So here we have dorado at one end and big yellows and grouper at the other...cannot beat that.
Yesterday not a lot of dorado but everyone at least was hooking up on billfish. Heard of one caught and to our dissatisfaction, brought in, a small female stripe marlin. All of us usually practice catch and release but sometimes things happen...
Today we where out early Luis, Abel and I and found the sargosso grass, under where litterly hundreds of small, med. and large Dorado..after two hours of fun with lite tackle...(a ball for me) getting our share of nice med sized bulls and back at the office by 9am...C-22 getting into the Yellowtail at the Island getting one horse of 34#...SEE WHAT YOUR MISSING!!!!
Then we have "Miss Piggy" giving the tourist business a jolt with MEXICO media scares. This little scare was enough to frighten everyone away. We are getting calls wondering if we are even still alive. Between the Cartel shooting last week and Miss Piggy this week, the media has not helped MEXICO tourism. So everyone out there - we have no flu, no shootings, we are catching fish, and the border is open, so get on down here and enjoy beautiful sunny San Carlos...So bye from Jon and Jen and the animal family...
PS Jen is defying MP and flying out tomorrow from Tucson...hope she doesn´t pass on that dreaded Dorado Flu of San Carlos...Next newsletter we will feature a new promotion with the other merchants of San Carlos.. www.jonjencharters.com
