Isla Mujeres – March 10 – 15, 2010

Isla SailLong known for containing one of the Atlantic Ocean’s largest concentrations of sailfish, Isla Mujeres draws a multitude of boats to its prolific waters each spring. From January through March, a large influx of bait holds huge numbers of eager Atlantic sails, with some top crews releasing 50 or more fish a day. Grand slams are a real possibility here, and we expect to get at least a couple of shots at this rare feat during our four days on this island paradise.

Galapagos Islands  – March 24 – 31, 2010

galapagosMade famous by Charles Darwin’s visit on the Beagle the Galapagos Islands hold huge numbers of striped and blue marlin. During several months each spring, anglers lucky enough to visit these breathtaking islands can experience some of the hottest marlin action on the planet. Twenty marlin bites a day are not uncommon when the fishing really heats up. Still considered a bit of an adventure trip, this Marlin session will instantly make you a member of the small group of anglers who can say they’ve fished these storied waters.

Kona – July 28 – August 2, 2010

KonaIt’s a commonly known fact among big-game fishermen that Hawaii is the only place in the world that can boast about catching a grander blue marlin in every month of the year. The legendary fishing community of Kona enjoys a good number of blue marlin catches all year long. Kona is also known as the birthplace of lure fishing for marlin, but this is also a great venue to learn the art of live-baiting for marlin, and we are sure to spend at least part of each day fishing live baits, something we don’t get to do very often at Marlin U.
Marlin University offers an all-inclusive package that takes care of all your basic expenses. (Meals, accommodations, ground transfers, four days of hands-on blue-water instruction) We teach you to instinctively know what to do once you've hooked a fish.
