Cabo San Lucas Report from RedRum Sportfishing

Wednesday, April 29, 2009
Sorry for the delay...

We've been dealing with lots of folks calling and emailing about the "Swine Flu." Everything is fine in Cabo, regardless of what you hear on the news and in the papers. They have confirmed that only a few of the deaths in Mexico City were really "Swine Flu" related. 36,000 people die annually in the US from the normal flu. "Swine Flu" like any other flu, is not curable, but it is treatable. Business as usual here with the RedRum crew.

Ben Reina is down from Chicago with his wife, but she didn't want to head out fishing. Ben headed out Monday with ReelRum and was rewarded with 3 Yellowfin Tuna and a real nice Marlin. Congrats on that first Billfish Ben. On day 2, while getting strikes and hooking 3 different Dorado and pitching bait to a few Marlin, nothing was brought on board. The boys did however spot a 300-400 lb Blue Marlin chasing the lures behind the boat!

Jack Kay and his crew, new friends from the New England area, had their second day of fishing with RedRum yesterday. While they had a great day on the water and had a bit of action, nothing was brought on board. Good thing they caught fish on day 1!

Scott Stanard and his daughter Ashley, who are good friends from Nebraska were down yesterday and they had a great day on the water. They saw all kinds of sea life, including a big Hammerhead Shark that breached close to the boat. Towards the end of the day, they were able to hook into and catch 2 nice Dorado. As an added bonus for the office crew, they have invited us to dinner tonight. Good luck to Ashley in her next endeavor as she is off to Bulgaria to serve in the Peace Corps.

The Brinkman party on the Red Beam has had a great time in Cabo, fishing however, didn't work out too well. Water was a bit rough today and they were back early, without any flags.

Warm warm water in the Cortez, up to 80 degrees in some spots today, could be bringing the Blue Marlin a little earlier than normal this year. Omar and Alex have each spotted Blues the last few days! Here's to a great Blue Marlin season for Cabo and RedRum Sportfishing.
