Shooting your own foot! Fishing responsibly and minding life on the sea is one thing, but stupidity mixed with negligence is quite another deal, and the latter is becoming more commonplace. I
Yellowtail fishing has been solid for medium-sized yellows at the San Bruno reef. Live mackerel gets fished the most for yellowtail and usually gets the best results. Blue and white iron chuckers have also been doing well on the smaller, 12-pounders.
The “hot talk” is about taking the long ride north to hammer the big yellows at Pulpito and the Almejas rock piles. “Let’s go, let’s go” doesn’t mean the fish are hitting the decks, but the time of year is pointing in that direction. As soon as the Christmas tourist rush is over, we should be seeing more big yellows coming in from up north.

What a day for Pisces 66′ Viking Friday Bank Angler Malia Evans told us about her day, “We had three generations of family aboard. We caught seven dorado and one marlin released! Plus, one of the dorado had a baby turtle in its mouth when we caught it. We were able to revive the baby turtle and release it, and it swam off strong.”
Memories to last a lifetime; that’s what it’s all about.
Dorado had been the mainstay for the last couple of weeks, but they became scarcer this past week. Scattered fish averaged 10 to 15-pounds. Wahoo were harder to find than dorado. Early in the week, several wahoo, close to 40-pounds, were brought in, with others lost as well. Then through the rest of the week, these fish were not biting. We are optimistic that the wahoo will become more active as conditions come into shape, as this is their typical peak season.
This year’s Bisbees was a historical one any way you put it. Not only was it the largest pot of monies ever, 9.8 Million Dollars total (more than doubling last year’s pot of $4 Million). But it was also a historical day for Pisces, as it is the 1st time we have won 1st Place in the Black & Blue Tournament (well there was one other time when 28′ Karina placed and then…. well that’s a different story).
Not only this, but we were pleased to see another local charter boat take 2nd place, and that both winning teams were outfitted by local Captains and Mates.

The International Game Fish Association (IGFA) recently announced the release of the highly anticipated 2021 World Record Game Fishes book, the world’s most definitive publication of recreational angling records, and the organization’s signature membership benefit.
It was a long wait since the First Marina Puerto Escondido Tournament took place in 2019. Team “TAG,” the overall winner of first place in 2019 returned seeking a repeat performance only to be nudged out of the “release” top spot by the time of catch in the release division by newcomer “Team La Chingona.”
There are also some big schools of nice jack from Punta Colorado to La Salina and a ton of “micro” bait that they have been feeding on. Most of this has been taking place a little later in the day. On most days it has started around noon and lasted until about three. If you see the birds, you will find the fish. They are from about 1/2 mile to 2 miles out. Throwing sardina to the fish seemed to work for some groups as they wanted the bait, but others didn’t. You could tell a few groups were more in the spawning mode, but those that wanted to play were overly aggressive.
