Good morning and greetings from St. Thomas and "Loaner" Sportfishing
The last moon, the September moon, was to say the least beyond compare. We began our moon fishing for one day with Art Godoy and his family which included wife and daughter, Alisha and Sherry, and a friend Elisa. And it was a good day as his daughter caught and released her first blue marlin! A great time was had by all, it's always a special day when someone catches their first marlin.
But from there the bite built up to something that has not happened in the memory of many St. Thomas veterans. Frank Branch, captain of the Sandra-T, and his boss Serena arrived to fish one day with us and 3 days on another boat and they saw an incredible bite. We were fortunate to raise 8 blues and release 6. 2 fish were over 400lbs and all with the exception of 1 were over 300lbs. They went on to have a strong run for the next 3 days releasing over 12 fish in 4 days of fishing!
Stan"the man"Strickland and his Captain "Buck" were next to fish with us and once again the bite was on. Over the course of the next 5 days of fishing we released, between Stan and our next group, 7 blue marlin and raised quite a few more. All in all an incredible moon.
We are booking for the October full moon, which is on the 4th of October, and we have great dates available still. Historically the October moon has always been good and usually better than the September moon which if this proves to be the case should exceed all expectations. Anyone with any interest should get in touch and let me know how I may be of service. So until later....
