Hello Capt. Bill!
We have returned from East Cape and here is the report:
*** The reserved cabin cruiser Opah was broken down and on the beach the whole week; therefore we had a different crew everyday
*** Jeff de Brown was quite helpful as a flyfishing guide and came well equipped w/ teasers, squid daisy chain,etc.
*** Hotel food and service were excellent!
Here is a summary of the fishing action:
Monday: raised one small sailfish(40lbs) and refused the fly
Tuesday: hooked one blue marlin on ballyhoo bait and broke the mainline in less than thirty seconds
Wednesday: absolutely no action
Thursday: quadruple hookup of striped marlin(160-180 lbs.) at the same time and landed three on conventional tackle
Friday: Two yellowfin tuna on dead drifted squid or herring bait; hooked a 250 lb blue marlin on fly and broke 50b butt section after 20 mins
Here are some photos of the action!
Many thanks for setting up this trip!!
