Thanksgiving in Bahia Asuncion

Another Thanksgiving fishing and yellfest in Bahia Asuncion is drawing to a close. This year I had Deamon, Mitchel, Druko, CON KSO, Patrick,who is a winter resident at Camp Rene near Abreojos, and Mark Mizak, a firefighter from Montana. Conspicuously absent and missed were Makobob and Jeff Lowe. Roger, John and Patrick left after a couple days and fished at Campo Rene. Leaving fish to find fish is not always a good idea but it worked out well for them.

That left Jim, Mitchell, Mark and myself to chase the Asuncion fish. The fishing turned out to be stellar, matching the weather. While we were concentrating on the yellowtail, there were some impressive by catches and as I mentioned before, most were within a mile and a half paddle from the launch. I went long in my tin boat on one day and managed to land a wahoo, my second of the season. We managed to land a couple nice dorado which seem to be thick as fleas right now. Mitchell hooked and lost 5 yesterday and saw many many more from his kayak. The most unusual catch was made by Mark Mizak who was jigging for yellowtail in 100 ft of water in Jim's boat near the island and hooked and landed a nice 19 lb yellowfin tuna. The total count on the yellowtail was right around 70. Mostly in the 18 to 25 pound range but a few chunkier models, but no rats. Lots and lots of big fish lost to the rocks. I personally lost about 10 of the Salas 6x jrs being rocked by fish that were simply unstoppable. Everyone else experienced the same sort of tackle loss. Too many bonito and chunky skipjack tuna to count. Oh, and I almost forgot, Jim and I each caught a 25 lb class white sea bass. The first I have landed down here. No halibut this year because no one fished for them, and no Marlin because no one saw any. Without a doubt the best fishing we have experienced on these Thanksgiving get together's.

We celebrated with a lobster dinner last night.

We had a good time fishing the island too! But we needed to leave to make the fishing turn truly epic... that's the way it works. See you in two weeks - keep the those fish hanging around!

Thanks for the mention Robbie! Kind of switch over to a skiff but haven't fully nixed yakking from my future...some day Brotha!

One thing about Rossman...yeah, he's a nice guy...opens his home to pretty much anyone....he'll offer you his last beer and even pay for your lobster dinner...the dude gives up his honey holes, NO PROB...

BUT...after he's laid all this out...and it's the day you fish with him...you arrive to the spot ready to go...you're like all relaxed and chill...Rossman shifts into this mad-dog hyper hard fishing machine and he'll run your fish catch to shame, if you let him...
