Fishing Finatics

March 28, 2017:
Pete Santini from Fishing Finatics was in the VIP lounge Guayaquil Airport waiting for his flight to Miami when he gave me this report. They had a great season down in the Galapagos this year. The action was nonstop some days on tuna, wahoo, dorado groupers and different species of jack's They also caught some black marlin up to750 pounds plus a 450-pounder on a light outfit and a Halco plug .The striped marlin fishery is definitely not what it used to be 3 years ago. Many factors can cause this including extremely high water temps, bait concentrations and use of longline and other forms of fishing outside the reserve. But what Pete can guarantee is rod bending action on hard fighting fish in a tropical paradise with great lodging food and adventure every day. Pete will be at the Castafari, Damon Sacco's seminar Saturday April 1st at Newton Marriot if anyone wants information on fishing aboard Vertigo 2. On a local note all the major ponds in the area have been stocked with rainbows and they will be smacking Al's Goldfish, Mepp's and Rooster Tail spinners as well as Power Eggs pretty soon. The second annual Boston Old School Bass dinner and seminar is Wednesday, April 26th at Avellino's in Medford. Matt Ayer of the division of marine fisheries will give a presentation on striped bass and ground fish tagging in and around Boston plus other local sharpies will be there talking about catching big stripers in our backyard day and night. Tickets are 60$ and only 60 will be sold. The fee includes a fantastic buffet dinner, cash bar, raffles to benefit children's hospital and the door prize will be a custom 7-foot Rainmaker spin rod and bait runner reel. For catching big Boston bass call shop for tickets last year was a sellout this year will be too.
