Shot this video the other day at a spot about a hour panga ride from Morro Negrito. More videos to come!
The weather down here at Morro Negrito has been beautiful, and there has been a lot of life and some of the clearest inshore viz I have ever seen here. We have been hitting the river mouth and putting steel through Pargo and Snook. Yesterday was one of the best days i have seen at that spot, and of course as murphy’s law would have it, it was the one day I didn’t bring the camera. Needless to say we have been eating like kings and enjoying the nice conditions. I have a little bit of footage from the last couple days that I am going to put together and post up here, so stay tuned.
The Crew from Gass Productions came down last week to shoot a episode about spearfishing for there series “Rod and a Ruckack” which will air on major networks in the US and the UK. We went out to Isla Montuosa for 6 days, and unfortuanetly the weather just would not cooperate. December’s weather down here can be a roll of the dice as it is the tail end of the rainy season. For us the dice did not roll in our favor, but we made the best of the trip and got some diving in as well as some Rod and Reel Fishing. We boated Amberjack, Trevally, Mullet snapper, Mahi Mahi, some small yellowfin and had a hook up with a billfish. I saw a nice wahoo on one of the highspots off of Montuosa, but they just didn’s seem to be around in numbers. The Crew from Gass (Andy, Guy and Dan) were a pleasure to be around and had some amazing stories from there travels in search of fish for the filming of there series. They are some truely talented characters, and i look foward to watching the series when it airs. You can check out there website at this link: http://www.gassproductions.co.uk/ Its also worth checking out the trailer from there first episode which aired on WFN in the US. Here is the link: http://vimeo.com/7431831 Enjoy the photos and stay tuned for more trip reports!
We hit up my favorite local spot again today to shoot some fish to put on the dinner table. I love diving this spot when it is really murky, you never know what is going to materialize out of the gloom. I was able to shoot three snook and a decent pargo. Nothing massive, but plenty of table fare for us and the neighbors. We are going offshore for a week soon, so stay tuned for the trip report.
We are currently gearing up for our first Isla Montuosa/Hannibal bank trip of the season. The weather has been good and so have the fishing reports. I jumped in on a local spot today and was able to pop a few snapper for dinner in just a couple of dives. Stay tuned for some offshore reports.
We are getting warmed up for the season over here at Morro Negrito. A Yellowfin was nailed right off the rocks at Morro Negrito! Despite the small size of the YFT, this is worth mentioning as it is pretty rare to see yellowfin so close to Morro Negrito. Soon we will be on Hannibal Bank and Montuosa with trip reports of monster tunas being landed 60 miles offshore.
