It is for sure the inshore species are eating tonnage of squid, because the sierras we were getting ½ mile of the beach were just loaded with them. It is very possible the sailfish have just changed their feeding patterns and instead of feeding on warm water bait like flying fish, they are feeding on the squid in the cooler water below. After they get their fill, they then come to the surface to warm themselves up.

One notable day in the blue water was when Karl Peters took his boat, the Aleta Negra, out with Captain Juan Pablo to look for tuna. Using only artificial lures, they raised 2 striped marlin, a couple of sailfish, a dorado and 1 blue marlin. Karl had one spectacular release by catching a striped marlin on a spin outfit with only 20 pound mono line. They didn’t find any tuna, but Karl reported there were lots of birds.
