Marlin,sportfishing, Nicaragua,Black Marlin, red snapper
Well we went offshore yesterday on a full day fishing tour. Started 6am and headed to a familiar spot. Water was green with no life in sight. We have been catching Marlin,sailfish and dorado all season at this spot. The water temperature changed about a week ago and so now it a new fishing game. So i started moving towards deeper water and more north.Finally after about two hours found some slightly blue water. started looking for signs of life, nope not a bird in sight.Finally I started to see some tuna chicks and the water color getting better. After about another hour I see some bait jumping ( small Tuna), then a few dolphins. Ahh maybe “some hope yet”, as the day was getting late and the seas were about 4-6 ft ( I knew the trip back to port would be a little bumpy, but our 36ft Hatteras could handle it)I figured that there should be some Marlin around as small tuna make for a good lunch.Well it was getting time to head back when look back behind the boat and out of the water come a black marlin. Not just any Black Marlin but a black marlin I’m estimating to be in the 900-1000lbs range. Wow! What an awesome sight to see.The clients eyes were popping out of their heads. We didn’t get a chance to hook this awesome Beautiful Black Marlin, but just seeing it bought smiles to everyone’s faces.We did actually catch a small tuna and a Jack (25lbs) earlier in the day, so the clients had some fish for dinner.I will head out again tomorrow, Thursday and Friday. I’ll update the fishing report Saturday.At least I have a new starting point and maybe that “BIG” Black marlin will show up again. This is the time of the year here in Nicaragua ( December and January) , when the Black marlin show up. So they are a little late, but maybe they will stay a little longer. There are still Blue Marlin here all year round.Striped Marlin also roam the waters here. Remember from my other reports that the smallest marlin we raised and hooked this season was 400lbs and the biggest so far was about 650lbs. Who would ever imagine that this type of fishery existed here in San Juan Del Sur Nicaragua.Let Nicaragua be your next vacation choice and maybe you can get into one of these grand fish.We are the premier offshore sport fishing charter company to target bill fish. We had an awesome season and would like to thank all our clients and wish everyone Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year. Best regards, Captain Jim Big FishBigfishtours.net
