Boats are seeing a consistent and pretty decent bite in the runup to Bisbee’s…for example, today the Picante fleet saw what was a pretty typical day for Cabo these days – three boats saw, in aggregate, two blues, six stripeys, and three sails. (No slams – the sails didn’t mix with the blues and stripeys today). There are definitely blacks around as well, as the black marlin bite has been quite good since the summer.

He believes the very best and most enjoyable place to find tuna is in a marlin’s stomach.View all posts by John
