2018 MARINA PEZ VELA OPEN!

The 2nd & final day of the MPV Open took place yesterday and the all girls team Sandra, Tania, Ivania & Nuria, the ‘Ladies of Marina Pez Vela’ joined us aboard GOOD DAY.

Capt Manuel Gabuardi did an excellent job to find the fish raising 1 Blue Marlin & 5 Sailfish. We were unlucky on the hookups but the girls did great to release 1 Sailfish and also caught a Tuna.

This tournament was super close from start to finish and any one of the 19 teams were in with a chance of winning and 4 teams constantly traded place at the top of the leaderboard with just 1 Sailfish (200 points) separating them at the end of the tournament.

After 2 tournament days the fish tally was:

89 Sailfish released
8 Blue Marlin released
18 Yellow Fin Tuna weighed
10 Dorado weighed

There were many more Tuna & Dorado caught but teams only weighed their heaviest each day.

Final Results:

1. Miss Judy - 1 Blue Marlin & 9 Sailfish
2. Double Nickle - 2 Blue Marlin, 6 Sailfish
3. Billfish - 1 Marlin & 8 Sailfish

Congrats to all for another fantastic event & now for the small matter of 51 teams from 30 countries when the 2018 Offshore World Championships starts tomorrow!

2018 MARINA PEZ VELA OPEN!

We are delighted to host the all girls team ‘Ladies of Marina Pez Vela’ aboard GOOD DAY for the Marina Pez Vela Open which is taking place here in Costa Rica this weekend.

Day 1 yesterday saw Megan, Andrea, Maria & Lidieth Fish their first ever Sportfishing tournament. The day got off to a flyer when we found some Tuna that were hungry and each one of the girls caught a nice sized Tuna each. One HUGE!!! Tuna exploded on one of our surface lures but unluckily pulled the hook after a few seconds...that fish would have been a crowd pleaser at the scales for sure!

Things were slow for us on the Billfish front with just 1 Sailfish released but everyone had a blast & enjoyed the team festivities!

Results after day 1:

1. Caliente - 1 Marlin & 5 Sailfish
2. Billfish - 1 Marlin & 4 Sailfish
3. Miss Judy - 6 Sailfish

Heaviest Dorado 61lb
Heaviest Tuna 43lb

Day 2 happening right now!!

DORADO & SAILFISH ABOARD GOOD DAY!

Pete, Tammy, Pierce & Irene from Illinois joined us for an Offshore trip aboard GOOD DAY today.

The boys wanted Billfish & 15 year old Irene wanted a Dorado. Things worked out perfectly & the boys tagged & released their first ever Sailfish & after an epic battle Irene put a 56” Dorado on the deck in the last hour of the day, awesome!

We raised 2 good sized Blue Marlin but frustratingly,
could not get them to eat a bait. That’s 5 Blue Marlin we have raised in 3 days - tomorrow is another day, fingers crossed!

We have just finished the first two days of Fishing with Daniel, Asa & Christoffer from Sweden.

Day 1 - Huge bucket list item ticked off for Daniel as he released his first ever Marlin, a Blue of around 200-220lb aboard GOOD DAY. We were super close to hooking another Marlin but narrowly missed out and were unlucky not to convert the 3 Sailfish we raised.

Day 2 - we fished on 33’ Proline Amy’s Dream today. 0 for 1 Blue Marlin, 0 for 2 Sailfish, 1 for 2 Dorado & 1 Tuna.

3 days remaining with Daniel & family, looking forward!
