Tip&Trick Description 1: Here’s a fishing story.

Four married guys go fishing. After an hour, the following conversation
took place:

First guy:
’You have no idea what I had to do to be able to come out fishing this
weekend. I had to promise my wife that I will paint every room in the
house next weekend.’

Second guy:
’That is nothing, I had to promise my wiife that I will build her a new
deck for the pool.’

Third guy:
’Man, you both have it easy! I had to promise my wife that I will
remodel the kitchen for her.’

They continue to fish when they realized that the fourth guy has not
said a word. So they asked him.!

’You haven’t said anything about what you had to do to be able to come
fishing this weekend. What’s the deal?’

Fourth guy:
’I just set my alarm for 5:30 am. When it went off, I shut off my alarm,
gave the wife a nudge and said, ’Fishing or Sex’ and she said, ’Wear a
sweater.’

Report Description: “FLY HOOKER” FISH REPORT FOR JANUARY 20, 2003

Today was the second and last day of fishing for David and Teresa Fehr. This morning Teresa
told Mary that her son had said that he wanted her to catch a shark. Too bad he didn’t say he
wanted her to catch a Marlin! Juan and Manuel went out in the direction of the San Jaime Banks
again and worked the east and south side of the area. By 9 am they had lost one big Dorado and
caught one, then the action tapered off. Around 11 am Teresa hooked up to a Striped Marlin,
hooked while they were slow trolling live bait and the fish made one good jump before coming
off. They had a few other strikes but the fish were never identified. Manuel started working back
towards the lighthouse as word got out that the action just offshore in the area was pretty good.
About one minute after setting out live baits there, slow trolling again, a Hammerhead Shark
pounced on one of the little lively Mackerels. Teresa fought the fish about halfway in and then
David had to finish off the job. After still pictures and video, the fish was released. That was all
the action for the day but everyone had fun! Thanks David and Teresa, and we hope to see David
again in November!



“FLY HOOKER” FISH REPORT FOR 21 JANUARY, 2003

Bill Berg is in Cabo again, and again he is with friends Ron and Joe. They are escaping the 2
degree weather at home in Connecticut! Bill, Ron and Joe will be fishing for three days and this is
the first of them. A Marlin for Ron would be nice, he is the only one not to catch a Marlin last
year. Juan and Manuel started out the day just off the lighthouse and worked their way about 12
miles to the west before turning south. The picked up one nice Dorado of 30-35 pounds and lost
another one right afterwards and a little later on lost another one. Must need to sharpen the
hooks or something! The seas were rollers at up to 6 feet but there was very little wind chop.
Nothing else happened on todays trip so we have to keep our fingers crossed that tomorrow will
be better!



“FLY HOOKER” FISH REPORT FOR 22 JANUARY, 2003

The second day of fishing for Bill, Ron and Joe was a bit more productive than the first day and
one of the reasons was that Ron managed to get a Marlin (finally!). They started the day off with
a bang when they hooked up a Dorado just off the lighthouse on the Pacific side. That fish came
off then another one hooked up. That fish came off as well and then a smaller Dorado attacked a
lure and hooked itself. Joe had the honors of bringing dinner to the boat and it did not take him
very long. With dinner out of the way they could begin the Marlin hunt. They continued offshore
in a southwesterly direction about six miles and had a Wahoo attack one of the lures twice, but it
didn’t hook up. Manuel then spotted three Marlin tailing a little way in the distance and gunned
the boat to the spot. Juan made a long toss with a live bait and managed to get it in front of the
fish. One of them was hungry and ate the bait. Ron settled in for the fight and after about 30
minutes had the fish close to the boat. The Marlin made one vertical jump right next to the boat
and they guys could see blood streaming out the gill cover so the fish was taken instead of
released. Ron had to deal with a pinion gear that was beginning to strip but managed to work the
reel well in spite of the fact! Good going Ron, now what do you guys want to do tomorrow?



“FLY HOOKER” FISH REPORT FOR 23 JANUARY, 2003

Bill, Ron and Joe decided that what they wanted to do today is catch more fish. It is Juan’s
day off so our deckhand was Efrain, and the guys loved him. Once again the fishing was slow for
us, but they were able to get two Dorado to the boat today, instead of the usual one! Besides the
Dorado, the only other fish they hooked was a Striped Marlin. I believe it was Joe who got to
fight the Marlin. The fish bit on a lure (mean joe green) off of the short rigger and it did not take
much longer than 5 minutes to get him to the boat where he was tagged and released. Well, the
guys did not catch a lot of fish but at least it was consistent, and much better than shoveling snow
off the driveway in 2 degree weather! Thanks guys, we loved having you here once again. Until
next time, Tight Lines!



“FLY HOOKER” FISH REPORT FOR 24 JANUARY, 2003

Tim Jewell is getting married in Cabo on Monday and has brought family and friends with him
for the event. Being a fisherman, he just had to get in some time on the water while here, so he
has booked the “Fly Hooker” for three days of fishing, fly fishing that is! Today and tomorrow
we are taking out him and friends and on Wednesday it will be him and his new bride. Today we
have Tim and his friends Bob, Jack and Jim. What we are really looking for is anything to get
action from and I heard of some Tuna that were showing up just off of the lighthouse yesterday,
plus there were a few Dorado in the area. If anyone had told me at the beginning of the trip what
was going to happen, it would have been laughed off. We were out of the Marina by 6:45 and at
7:05 we were setting out two teasers, had a hookless live bait rigged up and were waiting for
action. At 7:15 Juan and Manuel spotted a Marlin tailing on the surface and swung the boat over
to it. The fish spotted the lures before we got there and was on them right away. We teased the
fish to within 40 feet of the boat then I tossed out the live bait to try and get the fish closer. The
Marlin was able to get the bait when only 20 feet from the boat and I thought it was all over then,
but it was just an appetizer and he was back on the teasers in seconds. Tim was the man of the
hour so he was the designated angler on the fish. A 13 weight rod with a Billy Pate Marlin reel
and a blue/pink foam head popper were his weapons and on the first cast the fish was on the
popper! We just loved to see that dorsal fin come zigzagging in on the fly! When the fish took
the fly, Tim set the hook. Out popped the fly. Another cast and the same thing happened. As he
cast for the third time I told him to wait until the fish had turned away before he tried to set the
hook, that way he would have a chance to get the hook to the corner of the jaw. It worked and
Tim was hooked up to a Marlin! The fish ran off about 50 yards of line then jumped twice, then it
headed for the bottom. The drag was adjusted slightly and Tim just watched as line screamed off
of the reel. It sure was a good thing there was 600 yards of backing on the reel as the fish did not
slow down until half of it was gone. Then the fight started. After about 15 minutes Tim felt the
pressure lessen and he was able to gain line rapidly, so fast that we all thought that the fish may
have come off. No, it had just turned to swim at us and on a 1:1 retrieve ratio Tim could not gain
line fast enough to keep up. Once the fish had settled down it was a give and take fight about
100 yards out. We had a moment then when it looked as if a Panga in the area was going to run
over the line, but he turned away in time. Tim was able to work the fish to the boat and Juan
grabbed the bill and I placed the tag. The fish was posed for a couple of pictures then released,
tired but swimming strongly. From start to finish the fight lasted 50 minutes! 20 pound tippet
and a 120 pound fish, way to go Tim! With that to get everyone pumped up the rest of the day
went easily. We had three more shots at Marlin but could not get any of them teased close
enough to get a fly out, and we had one Dorado come in on a teaser then leave. What a day
though, lets hope tomorrow is as much fun!



“FLY HOOKER” FISH REPORT FOR 26 JANUARY, 2003

Today we have Tim, Neil, Jack and Bob aboard and the effort is going to be in a different
direction. Instead of heading offshore we are going to try inshore stuff and see if we can get
everyone hooked up to either Sierra, Dorado, Bonito, Skipjack or Jack Crevalle. We cruised up
to Chileno beach and started to chunk in 100 feet of water. We worked the chunk line for almost
an hour and saw bait getting crashed in close to the rocks, saw a 20 pound Dorado chase down a
flying fish but did not get a strike. Just offshore a bit there were a bunch of birds working, as well
as two Pangas so we headed out there to see what was going on. The birds were working over
the top of a Sea Lion that was thrashing a large Sierra and the Pangas had hooked Sierra as well.
We worked there but had no bites on the cast fly. The Sea Lion got done eating the Sierra and
started to cruise around. One of the Pangas had an angler fighting a good Dorado by then and the
Sea Lion decided that he liked the easy meal! There was a heck of a tussle for a while but the Sea
Lion won and all the angler got back was the head! After that excitement we decided to try
offshore again and went up where we had the action yesterday. Nothing doing for any of the
boats in the area and all we had happen was the sighting of one Marlin on the surface that we
could not get interested in anything we had to offer. We did get to see some Whales do a bunch
of full breaches and spy-hopping as well as head stands but the fishing was slow. We went in and
tried the rocks at the lighthouse with no luck then anxiety set in. All right, never mind the fly
fishing, lets just get some fish. Out to the lighthouse ledge and deep dropping live baits. Three
lines out and after feeding all the leftover chunks and chum to the pelicans and seagulls, boredom
set in and it was decided to call it a day. After all, it’s Superbowl Sunday and we need to get
ready for the game! Thanks guys, I know there were no fish today, but we sure tried! Perhaps
Tim will have more luck on Wednesday! Until then, tight lines from George, Mary, Juan and
Manuel, the “Fly Hooker” crew.
