Once in a Lifetime Catch

January’s fishing report was nothing short of stellar. Is February going to be the same? You better believe it!For those who love Fly fishing, there were plenty of shots this month. Captain Jimmy on Gypsy racked up the numbers and so did other Captains in our fleet.Marlin activity started to heat up and it will continue through Spring. I don’t know about you, but when I hear the word marlin, it gets my full attention. Compared to last year, striped marlin has shown up in better numbers. This gives many anglers the variety and opportunity for a Billfish Grandslam (Sailfish, Striped Marlin, & Blue Marlin).The tasty dorado is still chomping on the bit and keeping anglers busy. Yellowfin tuna have been around as well, but no big ones yet. That will change very soon.If the fishing is this good, what will March surprise us with? It’s to be an action-packed report.
