Tuna at Corbatania

Trip Summary

We had a couple of trips to Corbatania last week. Both scored on tuna in the 20 to 30 lbs range with much bigger fish in the area. A few boats got fish in the 100 lbs class but they were very line shy . The bite on mini cows and cow tuna should break loose any day now and there are also some big marlin out at the rock too. We need a 10 hour trip at least to fish for the cows. The time is here. The bay is holding plenty of white meat Bonita for table fare and plenty of Toro for a fun fighting fish. We have been picking at some small grade Dorado on the inside too

We have had some great weather with water conditions being smooth but off color. Our 10 hour trip a few days ago was the families first fishing experience and it will be one remembered by all of us forever. Finding the right water color has become the key to getting bit. Big upwelling of cooler water has affected many areas but if you have the right intel fish are holding in the clean water. We found the perfect conditions and the reward was a beautiful 96" 140 lbs Sailfish who put on one heck of a show. She came on a dead bait rigged with a skirt behind 2 teasers. Like many sailfish do she too the bait gently made a short run,dropped it then picked it up again. Captain Ivan felt the entire process and got a perfect hookset . She exploded out of the water on a very long tail walk then sounded for the battle. The young man who had never caught anything before this was in for a fight and he did a great job following instructions . The sheer joy in his face as she peeled line was the reason we do what we do at HookedPV. Create memories that will last a lifetime for the customer and us. After about a 30 minute battle we got her to leader and as a team got a accurate measurement ,shot a quick picture and put her back in the water. She revved right up and swam away to breed and keep our billfish population going. We have been finding some tuna but it has varied from pretty good to dead from day to day. Lots of life in the bay now ,whales are back as is a pod of Orcas. Things should pick up soon as the fleet is fairly busy so lot of scouting getting done. Fishing Pelagics is always a gamble but we at Hooked will do everything we can to put you on fish. Book a trip and see why HookedPV is 1st in customer service.
