ANGLERS AND CAPTAINS WORK HARD FOR THEIR FISH AS DARK MOON PHASE SEEMS TO HAVE SLOWED THE BITE THIS WEEK…OR SOMETHING…IT WAS DEFINITELY OFF…
It wasn’t for lack of trying and surely the captains worked hard and pushed hard trying to find fish or getting them to bite. Also, for anglers, if you didn’t have your “A” game in place, that didn’t help. When the fish aren’t being cooperative and you start losing fish it makes it doubly hard. We lost some marlin and sailfish (that would have been released); some larger tuna and dorado were also lost. Those might have been the highlights!
I will note, however, that this past week was dark moon time again! I’m not a big believer in the moon phases, but all year, the slowest bites have been on the dark moon phases. For what it’s worth.
Quick flash…as I’m writing this, we’ve got some hurricane action to the south of us. It’s bending out and away from the Baja Peninsula, but we’ll probably have some wind and thunderstorms this week. Just another week in paradise!
That’s our story!
