Let’s go fishing!!!

Mahi Mahi and More!

Mahi Mahi has been the main course for us this past week… we had a few weather days and then a super nice class of fish with several citations!!! CONGRATULATIONS and a huge thank you to everybody!!! Lots of bill fish sightings and the TUNA are still around as well plus our first token Barracuda!! (Ceviche time!).  A big shout out to our young anglers as well… it is tons of fun having the kids with us and getting the next generation hooked on this craziness is one of our passions!  Give us a shout… it’s time to fish!

Marlin Mania :)

We had the rare opportunity to get to spend the day with one of our most special friends….Thank you so much Charles!!!  Karl and I don’t get much chance to actually fish with each other these days… We don’t know how to act being back in the cockpit together!  One of the best days ever 🙂  10 Whites!!!  With unbelievable weather and sea conditions and incredible company… there is nothing that would have made this day any better.  The marlin are still here… Now is the time to go if catching one of these marvelous creatures is on your list!!

First Billfish of the year 2013

First billfish of the year..A white marlin..Had a blue one hooked for a bit but he was on the wrong pole..Ended up with a nice catch of gaffer dolphin and some pretty yellowin tuna..Happy to be fishing..

Update :)

The Fistful has continued to chase the Spanish, Blues, and other nearshore species with some fantastic folks this week…. lots of fun and great fishing for everyone!  A big thank you to all our groups!!  We did have a day off at the end of the week and were fortunate enough to be able to go Offshore with an awesome friend and fellow hunter/angler to get into a little Marlin action!  Thank you so much Mike!!!!!  What a great day!

Alice Kelly :)

We took a break from the near-shore scene and headed offshore with the rest of the fleet and private boats to participate in the Alice Kelly benefit tournament today… always a great time!!  Tons of fun and supporting a great cause all at one go 🙂  Thanks to Tiffany, Holly, and Shanna for joining us to participate in this all women’s tournament!!  We didn’t get into the billfish bite like we were hoping to but in true Fistful style brought in some meat and had a ball!!  The Pirate’s Cove Billfish Tournament is going on all week… everyone is always welcome to come down, walk the docks, and be a part of this annual event!!
