|It’s been non-stop since the start of the 2022 season, hence why I need to apologize for the delay in newsletters. Back to back hunting/sportfishing trade shows in Dallas, Vegas, and then the Miami Boat Show.|
There is no denying that people are out in full force traveling. We all can agree that we want to get back to normalcy. Our staff has been hard at work with lots of visitors and we don’t see slowing down any time soon. Hint-Hint… this is why you should be securing your travel dates soon.
The fishing: Sails in March had better days than others. There were days of amazing numbers and others days where they were hard to find. Still with 1212 sailfish raises during the month, anglers went home with smiles on their faces. March was a great month for big dorados. So was for yellowfin tuna… just see below the Maverick crew with a 245.9lb monster!
There were 15 blue marlin raises, a little slower than normal. I’m optimistic those numbers will get better shortly. April started on the right foot and we will have those numbers for you very soon.
