After 8 years of targeting an Atlantic sailfish on fly record, angler Nassim Joaquin has found his magic number. Fishing with Captain Anthony Mendillio and mate Ruben Pena aboard the 48 ft Cabo " Chachalaca" , Joaquin caught and released 12 fish in one day and a total of 18 during a two day period.
On the first day Nassim caught six fish. just one shy of his own personal record of 7. " We tried to the raise the bar and were almost there but the weather was against us"  he said.  After that day the team knew they were seeing a great bite and tons of bait to hold the sailfish. Still, nothing prepared Nassim for what he would see the next day.

Laurie First Atlantic Sailfish

Laurie's first Atlantic Sailfish
On January the 9th and 10th  my girlfriend Laurie Marin Foucher and I fished with Capt. Anthony Mendillo aboard the "Keen M" targeting Atlantic Sailfish on fly in  the waters around Isla Mujeres.  
As usual with my luck the weather on day one was not very good. Of course adding salt to wound Anthony said they were getting around 40 to 50 bites a day before our arrival and it was now slowing down. With no baitballs in the area the method to raise fish was trolling. We fished about 8 miles northeast of Isla Mujeres and the "Keen M" raised about 20 sails of which I managed to hook 8 and land 3.
