31 foot GOOD DAY Marina Pez VelaWe did 14 charters in April 2016, had mostly great days and just a couple of slow ones. The highlight of the month was competing in the Offshore World Championships from 18-21 April which was an awesome week with 66 teams competing from 30 countries around the world. Other highlights was an epic battle with a 70lb Roosterfish for Jim Hill of Epic Boats USA on 4th April, a fish of a lifetime and real bucket list fish for Jim and then watching 11 year old Raegan show her older brothers how its done when she caught 3 Sailfish on 7th April. Our catch summary for the month as follows:


3/4 – no fish, water temp very high (91F)
4/4 – 70lb Roosterfish, 1 White tip Shark

April total:
40 Sailfish released from 105 raises & 88 bites with 10 Sailfish lost

The Sailfish bite significantly slowed as April progressed and now that water temperatures have started to drop we look forward to more variety in May and June.
