My girlfriend and I just got back from a weekend in Drake Bay and we had an amazing time. I've fished with Captain Willy a few times before over the past couple of years so I knew he was good, but he really out did himself this time. The best fishing season in Drake Bay is typically November through April so we knew we weren't coming at the peak time, but it didn't make a difference. Willy offered to take us off-shore to see if we could find any billfish, and we proceeded to release 3 in the morning and had a few more knockdowns and one crash our dredge.
After that we found a huge pod of spinner dolphin and Willy put us in front of them to go after yellow-fin tuna, which fortunately was red hot that day. We caught 7 in total, all in the 20-40 lb range, so we had plenty to eat. Willy offered to take us bottom fishing as well, but we declined as we couldn't resist a tuna bite that consistently good.
The boat itself is a new boat to the area, a beautiful 35' Cabo with top of the line electronics, Shimano Tyrnos conventional tackle, and a luxurious cabin complete with AC. The mate, Alex, is an excellent fisherman himself but also provides excellent service. He was always offering us drinks and fresh fruit, and he prepared a great lunch for us. He was nice enough to let us hook our own fish and gave us advice to help us improve. Even if the bite wasn't red hot it still would have been a great day on that boat and with those guys, but of course 7 yellow-fins and 3 sailfish just makes it that much more memorable!
