Big Tuna-Marlin Hot! Sails Moving Up

Capt. Bob Baker
January 5, 2011
Boca Chica - Saltwater Fishing Report

The schools of large and jumbo yellow fin tuna remain the most popular target. Watching one of these big brutes come clean out of the water, with YOUR popper in it's mouth, and then that first blistering runoff, are just two more reasons to look for them.

Sushi and sashimi are the other two reasons, followed by grilled steaks on the barbie.

Blue MARLIN remain constant , with at least one, and as many as four hookups daily a definite possibility.

WAHOO numbers are a bit lower, as the water warms they head for Ecuador and Chile in search of cooler climes.

Those great hoo's will soon be replaced, however, by big numbers of SAILFISH, as they come north on the Humboldt Current.

We have better luck with the sails, especially on FLY, at our place in Costa Rica, but in Panama, the water between Isla Ladrones and Isla Montuosa seem to hold the most sailfish. Another good spot is off Punta Burica. We access those reefs and the big drop-off there from either side.

Inshore angling for roosterfish, snapper, grouper, corvina, African pompano remains constantly excellent. Best spots for us are around Las Paridas, and all the structure at Islas Secas.

Good Fishing !! Capn' Bob
