|The Frenzy into a school of Yellowfin tuna!|
You would think that with this month's strong marlin bite I would have updated the blog sooner. I have always said that December should have at least 45 days in it! Oh well, better late than never so here goes:
You already know about my friend Bobby who fished one day and caught his first marlin. Jenny and I went down right afterwards and only had one day to fish with Rafa on the 35. We were trying to get Jenny a marlin on fly but unfortunately none showed up that day. Apparently the marlin were a few miles away as one boat saw 6 that day. We did catch some yellowfin up to about 40 pounds on fly! That was a blast. Photo and some rigging advice will follow in a separate blog.
The Kosloski family had 4 tremendous days of fishing with Jose and Marco on the 43.Their four days went like this:
Day 1: 1 blue marlin, 1 striped marlin, 1 sailfish and 14 yellowfin tuna
Day 2: 1 blue marlin, 3 dorado and 7 yellowfin tuna
Day 3: 1 blue marlin, 1 sailfish, 1 dorado and 3 yellowfin tuna
Day 4: 2 sailfish and 2 dorado (What, no marlin?)
All in all a fantastic trip for the Kosloski family and a prime example of why we believe that early December is a fantastic time to come fishing with Frenzy Sportfishing if you're trying to catch a marlin.
Our friend Harold Lovelady caught a nice blue on fly the same week! Pretty work there Harold. Practicing up for the upcoming GIFT tournament are you? I'll have to keep my eye on you.
The next couple of charter days saw some fair action on fly with our charter clients catching a nice striped marlin on fly and missing a blue on fly.
Then there was my buddy Chris who went down with 3 of his buddies to celebrate their 40th birthdays. Chris had planned 1, maybe 2 days of fishing but ended up fishing three days with Rafa on the Frenzy II. Their 3 day total of 2 blue marlin, a whopper of a striped marlin, 5 sailfish and a few dorado ensured that they had a great time coming to Costa Rica for their birthday celebration. I have been promised a bunch of photos, but so far this is what I have...
So as you can see the December marlin bite has once again proven that this is a great time of year to be fishing Costa Rica with Frenzy Sportfishing.
We have a few open days in January - April but they are filling fast! Contact Willy to make a reservation (www.frenzysportfishing.com/contact.html and come experience Frenzy Sportfishing!
The Frenzy continues as my partner Kerwin leaves today for a week of chasing billfish and having a great time with his family at Condo Del Mar.
