One look at the reports and one would think all that’s being caught these days are huge numbers of sailfish and striped marlin. But there still have been a fair few big girls caught thus far. The world’s highlights this year so far, by billfishery…
Ascension Island – 950 blue, 900 blue, 700 blue, 600 blue
Panama – 800 black, 750 blue, 700 black, 600 black, 600 black
Cabo San Lucas – 800 blue
Puerto Vallarta – 700 black, 650 blue
Brazil – 700 blue, 650 blue
Kona – 666 blue, 650 blue, 600 blue
Grenada – 659 blue
Costa Rica – 600 blue
S Florida – 450 sword
So far 19 fish over 600 pounds caught in the world this year…much great fishing still to come, for sure.
Looking for that big marlin in March? Be thinking about Brazil, where some big ones will still be around…Ascension has at least another week or two to go…Kona‘s always got a shot at a big one…you’ve definitely still got a shot at a big girl in Panama…and you can catch the start of the big marlin frenzy in Cape Verde.
