July 3 report
"Greetings, Today was one for the books and in Loreto all you can expect is the unexpected. We started out trolling and I got one small Dorado, then I got whacked by a Marlin but didn't catch it. After awhile we got two Marlin chasing our flies but we didn't catch either one of those, so I asked the Captain to turn the boat around so we could try again.This time as we trolled past the hot spot a giant Dorado, I thought maybe 60 pounds, grabbed my boat partner's fly and the chase was on! As I was watching the fish get the best of my buddy the Captain screamed out "Sailfish" so I grabbed another rod with a sardine fly on it and went after that fish. Me trying to get this Sailfish while my buddy was fighting the giant Dorado must have looked like a Keystone Cops comedy, but unfortunately I didn't hook it. My partner did land the Dorado which weighed in at 42 pounds and is the trophy of the trip so far.
