2/18/12 Guatemala Report
2/18/12  Guatemala Report

     Today raised 11 sails,  had a shot at 6, and released 5.  One was 160lber.  Also had one dolphin. A couple were hot teaser bites that we swithed off 10 foot behind the boat.  Super hott.  Day before yesterday had 2 Blue Marlin up.  One 250 lber tugged on the teaser for a long time, then totally missed a bait leaping after it.  The other was the biggest Marlin I have ever seen here.  She sat under a bait for a minute, then leapped after it and missed by 2 feet.  Only 2/3rds of the fish came out of the water and that looked like 400 to 500 lbs of meat.  Ready for tomorrow.,  Cheers, CM 
2/19/12 Guate
2/19/12 Guate

     Same thing today.  Raised 11 sails, had a good shot at 7, and caught 5.  Plus one 40 lb dorado for supper and another 15 lber to friends.  One marlin got spooked by our baits.  I think she just wanted to cruise under the spread.

3/2/12 Guatemala Blue Marlin
3/2/12 Guatemala Blue Marlin

     Great day today.  Caught a double header of Sails first thing in the morning.  The bite slowed down, so we decided to make a troll thru the pocket area.  Got a big bite on the right teaser.  I said I was 90% sure it was a Blue Marlin.  She showed herself again and we decided it was a 250 lb marlin, so we decided to pitch a ballyhoo on the tld 20 instead of the spanish on the 50.  Sure enough, She ate the pitch bait 25 feet behind the boat.  What a bite.  Great catch for Thurber.  Catch of a lifetime.  Caught the marlin in about 25 minutes.  Great fun with Thurb and Dale on the 28' Sea Angel.  
3/12/12 Great Sailfishing
3/12/12  Great Sailfishing

     This is a photo from back in the beginning of February.  Jose Santos fished with me 1 full day and one half day.  Caught lots of big spanish mackeral, jacks, ect. on the half day.  Fished only 3 miles out the post and caught a few sails.  Fun, fun.
3/12/12 Finished In Guatemala
3/12/12  Finished In Guatemala

     The blue water kept pushing out, so we had to fish from 24 to 40 miles out with the last group of Dale, Mazz, and Mark.  Weather was a little wierd, but we did catch Sailfish good enough.  Actually out caught the fleet of big boats two days.  This does not happen all the time.  Great fishing in Guatemala because all the captains share all their information immediately, working together means more fish for everybody.  Thanks to all that came this year, and I am ready for next year.  CM

Wahoo, blackfin, yellowfin
Wahoo, blackfin, yellowfin

    The forcasters missed it today.  Seas were angry.  Only got to fish for 2 hours because of sea sicknesses, but had 7 wahoo bites and caught 3.  Also had a really nice blackfin, and a yellowfin.  Pulled off a few fish because of rough seas.  Many over the bow and a few over the stern.  Definitely could have been a big day if we fished all day.  Lots of bait marks and a live ocean in the 73 degree green water on the break.
Make Up Trips
Make Up Trips

     4/11/12.  Looking for make up trip for this Saturday (4/15/12) and this Sunday (4/16/12).  I already have a few people for Sunday, so if you want to fish but are having a hard time getting together a full group, this is your chance.  $300 per person including tip for the mate.  The weather looks great both days and we have been catching wahoo, yellowfin, and blackfin.  Maybe a few dolphin if the warmer water will push inshore.  I am completely open on Saturday, so if you have a whole group give me a call or email.  Thanks, Capt Mike

May 7-13, 2012  Super Fishing

     Busy week, but that is good.  Had to cancel Monday's charter for bad weather.  Tuesday no charter, but did fish the next 5 days on the 61'.  Wednesday and Thursday we caught all the dolphin we wanted along with some wahoo and blackfin tuna.  Marlin fished in the afternoon and did raise one Blue Marlin on the left short rigger, but she just knocked it out of the clip and swam away.  She was not lit up.  Friday and Saturday had to work harder for the dolphin, but did get plenty.  Also a few wahoo and some blackfin.  Southeast wind slowed the bite as the week went on, but plenty of fish around.  Sunday fished a half day and caught plenty of bottom fish just off the beach because the spanish and bluefish were not here.  Should be here anytime.

     We fished everyday this week except Friday.  Cancelled a charter with the local coast guard because of bad weather.  I thought that was funny.  We won the marlin, wahoo, and cobia division in the local toournament this weekend.  Caught a pretty White Marlin with the pitch bait circle hook off the left teaser right after we just boated a few dolphin.  Had a 47 lb stud wahoo.  Super roough weather Saturday, but the fish bit all day.  Also, had a Blue Marlin destroy my left teaser, but she was not fired up to eat anything.  Also, had a Blue Marlin eat one of the blackfin tuna as we were reeling it to the boat.  My Canada guys man handled grouper all day on Wednesday and Thursday on the 31'.  Thanks to all the charters this week and hope to see you all soon.  Cheers,CM

May 21 - 27, 2012  Dolphin in the Shallows

     Really good fishing this week.  We had to reschedule a few trips for bad weather, but the fish were snapping when we went out.  The blue water and the dolphin were in 15 - 20 fathoms.  You could catch 'em well just 25 miles out.  Hopefully they will stay in close.  Also, caught a few wahoos in the shallows.  Saw 2 Blue Marlin Thursday, but could not get either to bite.  Maybe we will change that this upcoming week as we are lucky enough to have every day booked.

May 28 - June 3, 2012 3rd Place in Billfish Tournament

     Pretty good fishing this week.  Had every day booked, but had to cancel 2 days due to bad weather.  We did catch a Blue Marlin and a White Marlin in the first 2 hours of the second day of the Swansboro Bluewater Tournament.  Good enough for 3rd place.  We decided not to fish the first day due to rough seas.  Incredible Blue Marlin bite on the left short rigger.  Dolphin fishing was great the beginning of the week, but slowed a little towards the end as the SE winds made us shag grass all day.  Also, caught a few wahoo and blackfin tuna.  The one day bottom fishing, we caught lots of grouper, bass, snapper, and 2 nice cobia. Thanks again to all charters this week.

     Fish 4 days for marlin.  Jumped off 2 White Marlin, saw a Blue Marlin swim thru and under the spread, and maybe had one more Blue Marlin pull straight down hard on the teaser.  That was our encounters.  Did manage to win the largest dolphin on Friday, mainly because we were one of the 3 dumb boats out on a rough, rough day.  Had great 3/4 day Wednesday catching a handful of dolphin, 3 alberts, and a nice king mackeral.  1/2 day on Thursday with Dennis got lots of spanish mackeral and alberts.  Great week.  Thanks to my regular Big Rock guys.  We will get the big one next year.

October 29 - November 4 Grouper and Big Red Snapper
October 29 - November 4  Grouper and Big Red Snapper

Missed plenty of wahoo bites, but that is what wahoo do.  Over 300 lbs of meat.  Great sushi.  One wahoo sliced a 15 lb albert in half as we were reeling it in.  Awesome.  Fishing will continue to be good right on in to the middle of December, so call for an offshore trip on the 61' or bottom trip on the 31'!

Nov 12 - 18, 2012  Fishing Report

     The report is I have no report.  Weather here has been so rough.  Just can not get a window to fish a day or two.  However, the trout have been biting great right on the beach.  I have worked hard this week on Guatemala plans, so please call or email if you have any interest.  I have plenty of spots even if you just have you or you and a friend.

Nov 19-25, 2012  Wind and Swell

     What a week.  At least we have had the sun out a little Saturday and Sunday.  The weather made me cancel all 3 charters this week.  Lots of wind, and 5-8 foot swell near shore.  Looks like we will get a break and some normal nice weather this coming week.  Still working on Guatemala for this season.  I do have a few spots left.  Call or email if interested.  Thanks,  CM
Nov 26 - Dec 2, 2012 Grouper, Silver Snapper, Cobia,
Nov 26 - Dec 2, 2012  Grouper, Silver Snapper, Cobia,

     Only one trip this week.  Did have a few pretty days.  Caught some quality grouper, silver snapper, one cobia, lots of bass and beeliners, sharks, a 200 lb ray, and 75lb sand tiger, plus plenty of other bottom dwellers.  Constant action. Sorry for posting a picture of me, but I never take many!!  Cold water is pushing in and forcing me to fish to the southwest.  Lets hope the Bluefin make it our way this year.  We are due.  Send me an email or call if you want to be on the list for me to get in touch with you if the Bluefin bite turns on here.  Thanks, CM

     Still getting things ready for Guatemala.  Call if interested!  I only fished 1 of 3 charters this week.  The cold water is pushing in on the grouper bottoms faster than normal.  We caught lots of silver snapper, bass, sharks, few grouper, and plenty of other sea creatures.  Happy holidays.  Cheers, Capt Mike

     No fishing this week.  I had to cancel some charters on the 31' due to a combination of weather and cold water in the grouper grounds.  I am still organizing Guatemala for this season, and have also been working on the finishing touches of my new house after the fire last year.  Please email or call if interested in Guatemala, I still have a spot for 1 or 2 people, and could still go down a week early if a whole group wanted to come. This weeks picture is one of my favorites, there was no editiing.  Just got the picture at the perfect time to see the electric colors.  Cheers, CM

Dec 17-30, 2012  Guatemala Looking Good

          Looks like Guatemala came together well.  Thanks to everybody coming this year. I will be there just under a month and a half.  Looking forward to great climate, fishing, and times.  Also, thanks to all the charters this year. The 61' Pelagic, Kevin and I, did run our 100th charter on the 61' the other day.  Fantastic in these economic times.  I also had super charters on the 31', Pelagic Too.  Finally, Guatemala will put me over the top for an unreal season.  The picture is the snow last year in Atlantic Beach.  My daughter and I had a ball!!  Thanks again, Capt Mike
