Seasons
The waters here are world famous for year 'round sport fishing. While each year may be slightly different, the catch rate for all our game fish is fairly consistent all months of the year. There are no specific seasons here. Traditionally, April through September will be excellent for Sails, Marlin, Tuna and Dolphin. The seas are calm and it may rain in the afternoon. Our run time is very short as the fish can be found close to Shore. October through December sees the transition from rainy season to dry season and we catch a variety of species. December through March is often windy so boats run up to an hour to the south to get to the good fishing and out of the wind. Marlin and large Yellowfin Tuna are plentiful then, as well as Sailfish and Dorado.

Catch and release
The result of the sport fishing community's neglect to define "catch and release" has resulted in decades of dying bill fish dropped back into the water under the guise of conservation. This is particularly true when the angler's strategy is to catch high numbers, rather than worrying about each fish's survival. The tournament venue, where cutting as many corners as possible to run up the numbers, is the most extreme example. Quality "catch and release" means bringing a fish to hand with hook and line using the best method possible to insure the fish's survival after the hook is retrieved and the fish is released. Fish survival is the number one priority and although quality "catch and release" can not always be achieved, the conservation minded angler should make an attempt with every fish. Catch and release is not just letting the fish go. Catch-and-release is practiced on all billfish. With food species the practice is catch what you can eat and release the rest. We need and welcome any support offered for conservation efforts in order to protect the incredible resource we share.
