Biting in Venezuela.
– 12 to 15 miles out to the “North or West
June through October
is our Blue Marlin
season; 12-14 days before the full moon, to 2-6 days
after, are the best times of the lunar cycle to fish.
Although some very good action can occur 5-8 days after
the full moon leading up to the new moon. Early in the
season there will be fewer bites (one to three) but
fish (400# +) as you move through the summer months
the bite picks up, the fish size drops. By October moon
we could see 8-15 bites (or more) a day with 250# fish.
So when’s best? That depends on your target -
bigger fish are early, August is a good mix but busy
with tournaments. Otherwise September and October are
good because most of the local boats leave do not fish
that often. What about the weather? Early
can be breezy, but remember that Venezuela is outside
the Hurricane belt and the weather is almost perfect
every day all year around!
March is our best time
we will also catch yellowfin
tuna, sailfish, barracuda, jacks, blackfin tuna
and some dolphin (mahi-mahi).
You name it we might catch it this time of the year!
April and May
is our dolphin
season. When the run starts it can be fast and furious
with our schools of dolphin
running 20-50 pounds. Along with these schools we can
get a good white marlin
showing, and in good years a strong early blue
marlin bite. The spring
can be awesome! Every species has a season, but we have
caught all of these fish in every month of the year,
including blue marlin.
Even in January
we will always pull at least 2 billfish baits in the
We will always be fishing
for the most prevalent species for the time of year.
we want you to hook a fish!
