Due to ongoing discussions with the Mexican Government over the new rules and requirements for our vessels sportfishing in Mexican waters, we have delayed formalizing our fishing schedule for 2013.
These new requirements may or may not require adjusting our previous trip lengths. We hope to have this resolved very soon and anticipate our schedule will be out by December 1, 2012
Mike Keating’s Spirit of Adventure returned to H&M Landing November 4 after an 11-day trip with 17 anglers and Avet rep Ben Frazier aboard. Also fishing were a pair of anglers who won a Wounded Warrior raffle invited by Keating.
“The lower bank we fished on was picky,” said Ben to dock reporter Bill Roecker by telephone. Wahoo fishing was excellent, with the fish eating bait, bombs and jigs. The best one was a 79-pounder caught by Jeff Koep. We caught 200 Wahoo and had gorgeous weather.
Greg Rodgers of San Diego won first place for a 189-pound tuna that took a sardine.
Bob Friedman of San Bernardino won second place for a 170-pounder, and Ben Frazier got third place for a 161-pound tuna that took a sardine on 100-pound Maxima and an HXW reel.
