This is believed to be the biggest marlin ever caught in the area of Barra de Navidad, Jalisco, Mexico. This is on the mainland of Mexico, across the Sea of Cortez from Cabo San Lucas. Through satelite tagging studies on marlin conducted by Pisces and Grayfishtag, we have seen that many of the fish travel from the waters surrounding the Baja Peninsula to Mainland Mexico each year. We have seen an increase of fish even just in the marinas in Cabo due to the global pandemic of Covid 19 and we are sure to see bigger and more fish once the season opens back up for Sportfishing in Mexico.
The full story on this amazing catch, from a 24 foot skiff, that took 8 hours and fed most of the town, is found here.

When John Maltman and Nick Kronfeld from England booked their trip with us this Summer they expected to tick some fish off their bucket list, but they never expected what happened this Thursday on Pisces 31' Ruthless!
Yesterday, Saturday July 6th, Mr. Bob Hixson went out fishing on his “Team Galati” 80’ Viking Skybridge. Him and his wife Amanda headed up the Sea of Cortez side to Destiladeras area, about 35 miles from Cabo. They saw schools of tuna around 25 to 35 lbs, the water was 83 F and the weather was perfect. They had already had 4 Striped Marlin bites on their trolled ballyhoo but couldn’t land any of them. And then suddenly, something hit the ballyhoo again, really hard.
Anglers on board of the Pisces 31’ Tiburon were about to call it a day when a marlin hit their trolled lures; It hit so quickly that they didn't even get a good look at it, and during the fight they estimated it at about 300 lbs. Boy where they wrong…
Finally the day has come to choose a winner for our 40th Anniversary Giveaway which began earlier this year. When we came up with the idea to do this giveaway, we based it on the fact that we cannot imagine our life without Pisces Sportfishing crews, staff and especially our anglers. Thank you to all who participated and for trusting Pisces for your day of fishing!
