FIRST-EVER SAILFISH LANDED WITH DONA LISCHA SPORTFISHING FLEET
Dec. 19, 2005, Perry Veasey, Mazatlan, Mexico Sportfishing Report:
I just returned to the cold climes of Williamsburg, Virg., after a 3 week vacation to the Mazatlan area of the Sinaloa state of Mexico.
The wife and I have vacationed in the Mazatlan area, the past 10 years, even after moving to Virginia after living and fishing in the So Cal area for many, many years.
This year I finally did it! I caught my first sailfish! It was a very smallish sailfish, caught Dec. 1, 2005, while fishing about 30 miles out of Mazatlan's El Cid Marina, fishing on a 26-foot super panga with Capt. Francesco with the Dona Lischa Fleet.
We trolled into several hookups with small Blue Marlin, all released safely, 2 nice yellowfin tuna, and 2 very nice dorado, one of which I took back to the Mayan Sea Garden where it was excellently prepared and presented for our dinner that evening.
The fishing water temperature at Mazatlan was 72 degrees, and in calm seas about 30 miles west of the new El Cid Marina.
