As promised, here are my memoirs of Cabo after just getting back late last night.
IT WAS INCREDIBLE!!
Norm and I had a great week and as you might already know we even went out a second time, last Friday on the Bad Company. However, let's get back to the first trip on Wednesday. First thing, Norm catches a 57 pound dorado. Then comes my highlight, a 110 lb. sailfish that Andres nailed on the second strike. What a rush! It was a gorgeous fish. Norm then ended the day with a 35 lb. dorado which ended up as lunch at the Stoplight and dinner at our condo. Alex joined us for lunch and Marcel cooked up a storm. A fitting end to a great day.
Friday, I started things off with a small dorado which released itself on the prop. (Didn't want it anyway, so it was O.K. with me.) Then Norm got the fish of the day with a 140 lb. striped marlin that was a screamer. It was Norm's first marlin and he was ecstatic. What a trip!
As if you can't tell we had a fabulous time. Alex and Andres were super and we plan to do the trip again next year or in 2000. Next time we might even go on the 33 footer. We will probably have a few extra friends on the next trip down.
Anyway, Mike, thanks for setting up the fishing for us and we definitely plan on going through you again. Take care and have good luck on your upcoming trip to Cabo.
Best wishes, Bob Norton

Just a short note to thank you for a great time fishing while we were in Cabo. We had a great Captain, Manuel, and Alex was very helpful he even picked us up at our hotel on our day of fishing. In the first hour out, we hooked into a sailfish, it was lost, but what a thrill for a first time visitor to Cabo!!
The boat was wonderfully equipped and the ride very comfortable and made enjoyable by our marlin were found. I got to fight, land and release my first ever marlin, a beautiful 125 pound stripped. The captain and mate did a supreme job controlling the boat and helping this first time marlin fisherman land his dream fish. Within 20 minutes of releasing this fish, my wife got to hook into her first ever marlin. What a thrill for her, and me! We video taped the whole thing, and what a great day we had.
On the way back to port, the captain even took us through the famous arch of Cabo, he backed the boat almost right up to the sea lions there and let us video tape these as well. He and the mate whose name escapes me, showed a truly remarkable time for our first visit! We will definitely be back and will most definitely use your services again. The boat was perfectly equipped and the crew very helpful and friendly. Once again, thank you for making our trip a memorable one!
p.s. You have my permission to use this on your web page if you so desire. Also, if you could send me some info costs, time of year etc to come to Baja for the blue and black marlin, I would appreciate it.
Thank you, Ed & Debbie Sioui
