    After the awesome trip of the Pope a couple of weeks ago, we have Matt , Charles and Brad Mandeville of Michigan ,friends of KellyfishOn a BDer that was also a guess at PSFL early this year ,fishing with Capt. Macho and Capt. Sergio on a non stop action at Isla Montuosa and Hannibal Bank , they can't figure out why they call this time the " Off Season" , nice action on YFTuna ,Dorados and Wahoos , Matt bringing in a 150 pounder , lost a couple of big ones on popper , jigging was very productive and natural bait as well ! we will have some more Off season report the coming weeks , enjoy the pics.

    nice catches, seems like the off season has been better than good season!

    Brian,
    Fishing during the " Off "season is as good as any month , you just have to put up with some rain from time to time , the great thing is Wahoo season as well and there is hardly any boats fishing , big YFTs is hanging around the big rocks at this times and you don't have to chase them

    It depends on the Angler or the species and if we need fish for consumption

    Very nice photos, but only one question: Why isn't anyone smiling, especially considering the great meat haul?

    Thanks its kind of a last minute thing. I'm getting ready to launch some new products but we are going to due some torture testing first and thought what better a place! Its just going to be me Peter and Raza, Bret is tied up with work (as we all are) its far from good timing for me as construction is finally coming back to life in the NE and deals we bid 6 mons a year ago and now ready to break...but you have to do what you have to do :eek:

    So yes we are going to bring down some high end new stuff and invest in better cameras (high frames per sec) to get it all down.
