for some people yesterday. The skippies are getting bigger and meaner.
Some are ranging from 14 to 16lbs. Rooster seem to be everywhere, with alot of small ones willing to eat a fly. The bigger ones have a little more expoerience, so more knowledge is required by the fisheman.
The group went out yesterday and I stayed on the beach fishing from the Las Arenas hotel back to the light house. Picked up some lady fish, sierra mac´s and a couple small jacks. Walked towards the light house and stopped at the first point. A strong current was moving the line pretty good. This seems to draw the fish to the point and also the blue water and green water line was about 30´from the waters edge. I hung out there for a couple hours knowing the bait would be pushed towards shore.
I started seeing flashes in the water from the sardinas followed by the roosters, jack crev and big eye jacks. Only required a 30´cast at the most. I hooked up on 6 small roosters, 3 jacks and alot of big eye jacks.
Throw in a dozen lady fish on top of that.
Then I got NAILED by a jelly fish tennacle. My leg started stinging and burning. I backed out of the water pretty damn quick and started rubbing it with sand. I would of poured on some Aldolps meat tenderizer but that´s not something you carry everyday. I did the next best thing - you get the drift. I still have a couple spots where I feel a slight stinging but not bad.
My group is fishing their last day today and a new group comes in on saturday. The bait was a little harder to find yesterday at midday, but that´s not unusal. Alot of different species were caught
Darian, you mentioned the spook fly, I caught one jack crevelle on it then lost the full line line due to a knot failure. Actually lost two lines on that morning. And had a SA Mastery 350 line separate at the head and running line section. The knot separation was KNOT my fault either, someone else tied it for me
I will report todays catch later
