June 27 – Bermuda

Tagged as: Bermuda


The Bermuda Billfish Release Cup just finished and MAKO finished second!  Chuck McKenzie and his sons chartered MAKO for the tournament and Chuck was able to catch the first Blue of the tournament. The play by play on the fishing can be found here.  Congratulations to Team McKenzie – great job guys!

Warm water is here. Tuna and bait are here. White Marlin are here (in droves) and Blue Marlin have appeared.

After a delayed start, it seems like the season is back on track. We are getting 3-4 White Marlin shots almost every day (don’t ask the hookup ratio on the big lures we pull in Bermuda). As of June 27, MAKO has two Blues under our belt. The first of the year was caught by Jay – his first!

Jay did a great job and brought the little 250 pounder to the boat in short order. Have you noticed how much less fun the traditional swim is now that everyone has phones, blackberries, iPods, etc. in their pockets? It is essentially impossible to sneak up on anyone anymore.

The Yellowfin Tuna have been accommodating. We are catching 4 fish a day in the 50 pound range when we stop on Argus. It sure is nice to have them back in Bermuda.  The Blackfin and Yellowfin both seem more than happy to hit topwater plugs – that sure keeps things interesting.

Tournament season is in full swing, with our friends on the visiting boats pretty much all arrived.  Thoughts are on the World Cup being fished on the 4th – if you are fishing it in Bermuda, you always have a chance.

I’ll let you know how it goes.
