Sails at Casa Vieja Lodge
The sails are taking the fly–sailfish that is. Here’s a recent report from My old friend, Capt’n Jake Jordan.
Greetings from Casa Vieja Lodge:
December 19, 2012: This morning after another great breakfast served at Casa Vieja Lodge, Brent Kitson, Dave Fudurich, and I, joined Captain Mike Sheeder with mates Flaco and Ricardo aboard ”Intensity” for day three of “The Sailfish School”. Today we ran off shore for an hour and a half before putting out the teasers, within ten minutes Brent was casting to a lit up sailfish which gobbled his well placed fly and the battle was on. Five minutes and several jumps later Flaco grabbed the Sailfish, removed the pink and white Cam Sigler fly, and then released that beautiful fish.
The water was calm today, 86 degrees, with calm wind and sunny skies, we raised a total of 9 Sailfish and a nice fat Blue Marlin, Dave and Brent each caught two from a total of six bites. The 200# plus Blue Marlin never teased in close enough to cast the fly too. So far for the first three days of this school we have had 19 sailfish bite our fly with a total of 12 sailfish caught and released on fly.
L to R, Nico, Jake, Saunder, Merry Christmas from Casa Vieja Lodge
