Mexico sail fishing

5 posts in this topic

Back from Isla Mujeres, had a great vacation with my wife and daughter, got out a few times for sails, we boated 6 in 2 days, had several other bites but could not get them hooked up.

I thought I had some great photos of myelf with a nice sail but the guy did not push the shutter button down on my camera he said I got about 20 shots, when I looked no photos!!!

I myself captured some great shots while he was fighting another sail, [image]http://mexico07043hp0.jpg[/image] [image]mexico07044so4.jpg[/image] [image]IMG] mexico07074nr2.jpg[/image]

Hey swampbuck, glad you got into some! That first pic is a great example of just how thin sailfish are! Great shots!Any other fish? Anyone getting any whites yet? How much did you end up paying for a boat?

I just got back from Cozumel. We went fishing for a day and caught 6 Barracuda, 5 Mahi, and a Spanish Mackrel for lunch. It was a great time!! I'm considering heading to Australia in December for some Blue & Black Marlin. Anyone ever fished for Marlin in Australia?

No, but if I had a trip planned there I'd be darned sure to see if I could swing some fishing time! I know it's VERY expensive; most of the best fishing isn't easily accessible to a major port city, so travel/mother boat operations are common, and that gets expensive fast. That, and with some of the best black marlin fishing on the planet, they can charge what they want. Let us know what you find out if you get serious about it.

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
