Yesterday took us all by surprise; we got a call late in the day, when offices were closing, from somebody at the dock saying that a massive tuna, perhaps a record, had been brought in aboard the 65 FT Viking, “Santana”. We rushed down to the scale to verify the information and saw what indeed a huge tuna was hanging up. This boat had their own electronic scale, but needed to charge it, which gave us time to chat. We spoke with Jesse Santana who owns the boat and was fishing with his three sons, Jesse Jr., Joseph and Jacob. It was twenty one year old Joseph who had hooked the fish. They had headed out towards the Finger Bank and were after marlin, the boys were on the bow casting live mackerel as the frigate birds dove, indicating the presence of feeding fish.
Bisbee is the big bucks, but the most fun you can have in Cabo is the WON Tuna Jackpot, the LARGEST tournament on the calendar and a pay out this year of over $700,000 and with affordable entry fees and flexible rules this is a tournament for anybody to be able to fish.
We must say that ALL of our crews are fabulous and work really hard, with most fishing over 250 days a year…that’s around 8 hours a day in the sun, wind and elements 2000 hours or more at sea a year. Our overall catch rate from January to November was 85.3%. Our annual get together took place to recognize those who did a bit better,where they received cash and trophies.
A massive blue marlin was unexpectedly caught this week in Cabo San Lucas Mexico.
