I cannot say enough about all
the People involved with
Sportfishing.  I just got back
from a 14 hour day aboard the
Animal House and had a
blast!!! I was supposed to Be
aboard the Sirena but she had
some motor issues, so Damon
upgraded me to the Ana
Maria.  Well as we all know
Salt water is hard on boats and
the morning of my fishing day
the Ana Maria also had some
issues so Once again Damon
was on it and Called up the
Captain and Crew of the
beautiful Cabo yacht Animal
House. I think they were
actually asleep when he called
them but they were there in no
time!!  After leaving the docks
it seemed like no time we were
already 55 miles offshore and
fishing. The Animal house
hauls!  It started off a little slow
but around 12pm we had our
first hook up.  Flying the penn
kite the captain hooked onto a
beautiful Yellowfin tuna and the
fight was on!! What incredible
power those fish have! see full

Sportfishing July/30th
Lots of fish just not to big, with over
60 boats competing this year there
was only 1 marlin that qualified in all
3 days of the tournament, But that’s
fishing you never know when the big
Marlin is going to bite.
Day 1 Great conditions blue flat
seas but we were having trouble
finding the bigger skippies we
wanted for a big Marlin sure you
can catch big Marlin with smaller
bait but you will have much better
luck with bigger baits. Steve Torres
hooked up a nice Blue Marlin
around 1pm but not quite a qualifier
but still a nice fish so Freddy
released her and that was about it
for day 1.  Day 2
We had much better luck in the
morning caught 8 big skippies right
off the bat

My wife and I recently got the
chance to fish with Cesar Perez
on August 21st at La Corbetana.
The day started out a little slow,
but Cesar had told us earlier to
expect a later in the day bite.
Sure enough, around noon we
started getting hit trolling live baits
and around 12:30 hooked our first
tuna. While i was fighting the first
fish we doubled up and hooked
another about ten minutes in to
my fight. We were able to put four
100 plus pound tuna in the boat,
and got probably a dozen strikes.
reel in a tuna in the 130-150lb
range. My wife usually doesn't
enjoy long days on the water but
she has never had more fun
fishing than we had that day. I
have fished with alot of different
charters throughout Mexico, but i
have never had a better
experience than i did with Cesar.
He and his deckhand were
constantly working like crazy to
put us on the fish. He even made
fresh Ceviche for us to eat on the
boat, and prepared a ton of
frozen tuna for us to take home.

tuna over 100 lbs the only bite has
been over 120 miles offshore which
is a 2.5 charter only for serious
anglers. But as you can see from the
photos if your looking for a trophy
Yellowfin Tuna they are out there in
great numbers but not it's not going
to be your typically every day charter
this is for big time anglers not afraid
to stay overnight offshore. Inside the
Banderas bay has also been
showing alot of life lately with Jack
Crevalle. Bonitos, and Needle fish on
4-6 hour charters and north off the
point of Punta de Mita We are
starting to see Roosterfish as well as
a few Sailfish last week biting live and
dead baits trolling at mid speeds.

well it has been a pretty good
start for Billfish season nothing to
big yet the biggest Blue Marlin
reported was under 300 lbs but it
is just the start of Marlin season
and We predict We will start
seeing some marlin over 500 lbs
in the next couple weeks. The
best bite has been at the rock La
Corbetena Blue Marlin, Sailfish,
Dorado, and a few smaller
Yellowfin Tuna. The big Yellowfin
Tuna bite remains consistent
100+ miles offshore on over night
charters with Yellowfin Tuna
averaging 100-250 lbs.  The bay

lasting to long the most
consistent bite inside the bay has
been smaller Dorado
