What a terrific season that fired right off with the first white marlin for the season and the first blue marlin for the season and added 18 sailfish to their early season billfish reports. The overall catch reports for 46 days fished reflected 1 blue marlin, 6 white marlin, 18 sailfish, 2 wahoo, 4 blackfin tuna, 26 bonito, 13 dorado, 3 giant Atlantic barracuda, 1 shark, 1 amberjack, 7 snappers, 82 triggerfish 121 chackchi, 2 mojarres, 18 banana fish, 5 king mackerel and 5 grouper. Overall, this early season bite on the billfish has truly helped to make the anglers want to get out and go and we do recommend a 6-8-hour charter for focusing on the billfish.
