Sorry, this entry is only available in Dutch.
April 2019 was a difficult month for Ruben and myself: we both simply had no time to fish. The 2 weeks of Easter holidays, a difficult customer in Casita Blanquis which we had to “throw out”, a new car for Ruben,…. enough on our mind.
I went in search of a big pargo from the beach with my Shimano Tiralejos, Daiwa BG 5000, braided 50lb and a stickbait. A strip of 8 km fished on foot (El Puertecito to Agua Blanca) gave a total of 1 hard bite. The fish went of the hook after a few seconds and left me with the brand new scratched stickbait. It is probably a month too early because “pargoland” as we call it also offers beautiful cuttings from the beach and in May I will have a second attempt.
The few times that Ruben fished from the beach were good for some Jacks. We now have to wait for the first rain and the opening of the lagoons to search for the rooster from the beach. With the boat, yellowfin tuna – sailfish and striped marlin are caught, so the 2019 season starts great!
Last sunday I participated in beach fish contest for the benefit of a cancer fund in Puerto Escondido and organized by the Barracudas club from Puerto Escondido. Continue reading Beach fish contest Agua Dulce, a short afterthought
During Adri’s visit, it was unbelievable how nature determines the rules, but in spite of that, we enjoyed the 4 inshore / big game trips with SurfandFishing Charters. After the first day it became clear that the roosterfish wasn’t hungry. We “worked” for hours and finally only a few heavy jacks and 1 small pez gallo came on board. It was good for me that just that one rooster was caught on my trusted sharky but the result of hours and hours of casting was very disappointing to me. Worse to me: on the known pargo spot at Roca Blanca, I managed to loose a monster snapper : a brutal hit on a blue / silver Stephen Jansen popper (my fishing rod was almost ripped out of my hand) and ….the line snapped (80lb braided!). As a matter of fact, I’m missing out on a record fish, those heavy snappers become the black beasts for me. Please watch the video of our first fishing day:
Day 2 was actually tougher, we chose a very different spot that day, but we did not even make it to our “roosterbeach”. Cloudy water on the way to that hot spot and countless fruitless attempts promised a tougher day. Painful muscles and no action after hours, you would be less desperate. Crisis consultation with Levi resulted in a complete turnaround: we left the inshore stretches and started again at about 8 miles in search of driftwood and the associated fish species such as mahi mahi, amberjack and / or smaller sharks. We found a small shrub with some other driftwood and it was truly incredible what we saw: hundreds or thousands almost fresh born dorado’s (4-6 months old) blasted underneeth the boat. Fish from a few months old (around 20 cm.) and a few meters deeper small amberjacks and even bigger dorados. There were so many little fish that our light pilkers could not reach the bigger ones. We enjoyed the picture and the greed of the little mahi mahi’s. After some small fish we found it sufficient and went for dolphins and the associated yellowfin tuna. I had 2 well-catching HALCO LASER PRO 190 plugs in the bag in case of, so that couldn’t go wrong. In front of Tomatal we eventually found feeding dolphins but weird, Levi advised to cast at the tuna we saw on the fishfinder with the Williamson Thunderjig. I have to admit that I have never caught a tuna casting with jigs but it has to be the first time for everything, so why not ? The boat was well positioned and 2 jigs crashed 100 meters further into the water. Fast reeling resulted in a hard strike after a few meters. Unbelievably what a force or power tuna of 6 – 8 kg, develops, so top-sport and we enjoyed it. After 5 tuna we left the area, 3 for the captain and 2 for ourselves was more than enough to have some super fresh sashimi at home. A tough inshore day got a nice end, a video about day 2 comes later in a next report
