The last week of February yielded mixed results not the fishing front. According to the Pisces Sport Fishing team, there was “lots of bait, good color water, temperature a little high at 73 F, but the fish were hard to locate.” Overall, 20% of the boats that set sail February 21 – 27 caught a marlin.
While there weren’t the marlin catches anglers hoped for, there were a number of dorado reeled in. The latest fishing report detailed the catches that ranged from 1 – 5 fishing ranging from 5 – 30 pounds. Adding a little fun to the mix, one visiting angler caught a mako shark. The shark was caught and released. Other than that, there were a few skipjacks, yellowtail and groupers caught.
Mostly clear skies with some wind on the Pacific, seas mostly calm.
