Costa Rica in 2019 was a treat. Costa Rica was great for big sailfish, tuna, and dolphin fishing at Los Suenos specifically. We went for the Blue Marlin but did not get him. I will be back to do the FAD’S for my blue Marlin. That is supposed to be incredible action.
MAG bay is also on the bucket list for the striped marlin run.
Panama and or Australia for my black marlin.
I want a Giant trevalle! The Great Barrier Reef and Indonesia is supposed to be bad to the bone for them!
I had the pleasure of guiding in Alaska at the best salmon lodge around, Angler’s Alibi. I did that for 3 months in the summer of 2011.
I’ve been all over the Florida Keys offshore and inshore. They keys is an unbelievable fishery and I place you can never get sick of. The variety and amount is unreal!
The Tortugas is my favorite bottom fishing area ever. It has it all, mutton snapper, red snapper, black grouper, scamp grouper, yellowtails, tunas, wahoo, dolphin, red grouper, you name it it’s all there.
I was in the Marquesas in 2008 with friends for 5 days. That was awesome! We caught tons of permit, snappers, lobsters, and sharks. We went to catch tarpon but they weren’t there. So on our way back we crammed all 8 of us in one room at the big pine motel and fished the Bahia Honda Bridge. We fished it for two days and jacked the tarpon. Both boats hooked like 30 in the one afternoon and the next day. I was even fortunate enough to see a worm hatch which only happens on specific days and tides there. This was an incredible visual spectacle that I will never forget.
Chatham in Cape Cod was awesome! There I fish my buddy John for stripers and giant blue fin tuna. We crushed the striped bass and I hooked into one tuna on a bass jig which didn’t end will. The tuna one and straightened out my hook.
Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia is at the top of my list for a 1000 pound giant blue fin tuna!
The Bahamas is beautiful and one heck of a time! A dear friend of mine had a house there before hurricane Dorian took it away in 2019. We were there for a bachelor party and went there to target Wahoo. Let’s just say we put a dent in the Wahoo population that day. Local boy charters put us on them!
