Got back last night. None of the fishing went as I hoped.
I tried several days to fish the beach. The waves were large and the beach very steep. Dry sand to 4' deep in the blink of an eye.
Panga fishing was OK. Managed a few dorado on the fly. Bait, sardines, were scarce so it was hard to chum up the roosters. Capt tried to do a bait and switch but they didn't want any part of the fly. My wife caught 2 roosters on live bait. Also managed to present a fly to one marlin. He wasn't interested.
Fished a 31' Bertram. Had one striped marlin hooked up for a minute or two on a trolled bait, and that was it. Caught some large dorado but no more billfish.
Couple of guys fishing the beach with spin tackle did OK on roosters. June is prime rooster and Nov/Dec prime billfish time. The lack of sardines was a major issues.
Talked to a couple of guys that targeted tuna. They did well with yellowfin 100lb +.
I learned alot and next time will be better prepared.
