Golfito Dec. fishing report

January 1st, 2013

By the second week it got wild….Capt. Bobby McG. had a Black die on him that went 945 lbs..An unusual large # of Blacks was the chat on the dock.On the 17th a school of 140/160+lbs. yellowfin was located 21 off to our small fleet’s delight….Schools of smaller yellowfin were always available closer in under the spinner dolphins….Gaffer Mahi were very strong from 8 miles out all month…Sailfishing was spotty but when found double digit scores were common.The real deal was the very consistent Marlin (Blacks and Blues) bite that prevailed all month at the traditional locales.January is traditionally when we have the largest sails of the year as the spawn is on at the Burica grounds….Capt. Abraham Conception(see video this page) has set us up with his latest billfish fly’s…Come get some….

happy new year

    Congrats to Melanie on her first Blue! That’s oustanding. Sounds like paradise, fishing by one’s self, catching fish, and having good company to enjoy it with!! Can’t wait to see the additional photos.
