Pisces Fishing Reports
Great fishing again this week, with only a few boats missing out on catches. Marlin like we hadn’t seen in a few years for this season and fun smaller game fish as well, including rooster fish, wahoo, jack crevelle and some sharks.
What an impressive week of fishing, with almost 100% success rate from our crews! Only 5 out of 107 boats did not catch fish this week, and those that did find luck outdid themselves, with numerous catches and different species brought in per boat. The billfish are back with a bang, mainly striped and some blues with sailfish showing up again as well; dorado numbers continue strong and tuna have diminished only a bit. Other species caught have been wahoo, rooster fish and amberjack, with a few scattered sharks landed too.
This week we saw the end of the Bisbees Offshore and the start of the Bisbees Black and Blue. With a pot of around 3 million, the stakes were very high to find a fish over 300lbs. Many of our boats entered in both these tournaments, so we must note that although the numbers would seem to reflect that fishing was not that good, it is moreso that many boats were specifically targeting large black or blue marlin only and did not find them. Other boats that were not in the tournament fared quite well at catching smaller striped marlin and blues as well as dorado and tuna, with the scattered wahoo or roosterfish.
The big tuna this week was caught by anglers aboard the 31ft Rebecca, captained by Jose Ramon Alucano. With the WON Tuna Tournament just around the corner, from November 1st to 4th, these are some nice indications that the big fish are out there, and the tournament should be a good one! Anglers from California caught the 229.5 lbs yellowfin tuna on a purple lure 30 miles to the 140 Spot.
