December 2020/January 2021 Fishing Report

Just as we expected, once the clients returned to Drake Bay the fishing has been nothing short of amazing. We have had a ton of last minute bookings and have been on the water almost every day for the last few weeks.

Inshore, clients have been catching multiple Roosterfish on half day trips. Near shore the Cubera Snapper bite has been very solid as well as the Big Eye Tuna bite. Big schools of medium sized Tuna have been consistently around CaƱo Island for the last month or so. Once we are able to locate the schools, it’s not unusual to have four rods go off at the same time. This is a great way to have a little chaotic fun.

The offshore bite was relatively slow at the end of December (except for the big Yellow Fin Tuna) but that has dramatically changed since the new year. Yesterday, we had a client achieve a “Pacific Slam” by catching and releasing a Blue Marlin, a Black Marlin and a Sailfish. As if this wasn’t good enough, he topped it off with a 50 lb Mahi. We expect the big Pacific Sailfish to show up in bigger numbers every day. Double digit days of catching and releasing these incredible, beautiful and acrobatic fish are coming soon.

Fishing on the Reel Escape or Reel Time is a great way to social distance. Come soak up some sun and eat some fresh seafood. To reserve a trip go to the “contact us” page or send us an email to

We now have a 100% money back policy if your trip is cancelled due to travel restrictions.

Until next time…Tight Lines
