BILLFISH: Catches of striped marlin were quite steady this week, but we are not seeing the numbers yet that we would like. Boats continue to stack up off of the Old Lighthouse about a mile or so offshore and are soaking baits. We are still in the odd period where marlin are on the bottom feeding. This usually lasts around three weeks, but it can be frustrating as you need to sit all day amongst a crowd of boats and may only get one fish for a days’ patience. We counted eighty five boats in an area of about one square mile on January 2nd. Other captains decided they didn’t want any part of that and preferred to cruise up the coast in search of dorado and perhaps pick up a stray marlin as they are also being spotted on the surface in some places. One boat that did beat the odds was Pisces Fearless on December 29th, when they caught and released five marlin up to 120 lbs. Jason & Kristina Armstrong, fishing with Scott & Ava Lessing from Palo Alto, California. Greg Stewart from Plain City, Alabama had a fabulous day out on Pisces Yahoo, releasing three striped marlin close to Golden Gate and catching thirteen dorado off of Elias Calles. This same boat had a triple marlin day earlier in the week this time off of the Old Lighthouse for Jay Alexander from Georgia. Generally the average marlin catch was of one fish and less occasionally two, a little under half of the boats caught marlin this week giving us a total count of 50 caught and released.
