coming on board
folks, I am a new fisherman and have just retired to a small town in the southern part of Mexico on the pacific coast.
For the past 30 years I have visited this area and now have purchased my own boat to try my hand at sport fishing. I have bought a boat similar to the rest in my area, Imensia 26'. I have had the boat modified with a central control point and installed two out riggers, a down rigger ,live bait well and track plotter. The boat is powered by 2 new Yamha 60 hp motors. I have recently purchased 5 new rods reels and a kite rod with a few kites.
I am ready to go but now just have to learn how to fish. the main species of fish in this area are sail fish, dolphin fish, marlin and tuna.
The main reason for joining this form is to gain some experience and learn what I am doing right and wrong.
I have been fishing daily for the past few weeks and have caught a few sail fish and dolphin fish but not on a consistent basis. I would like to do better!!
Currently I am trying to catch a marlin and after 4 days of not raising a fish I am thinking that I am doing something wrong and need some advice. I have been trolling with 2 motors going at 9 knots, in clean water. Should I be using one motor or two and what is the correct length behind the boat should the hooks be?
