SPRINGTIME FISHING IN THE EVERGLADES By Dr. Martin Arรณstegui

S

pringtime is my favorite season for freshwater fishing in South Florida. As waters warm up and the water levels in the Everglades reach their lowest point of the dry season, many fish migrate from the sawgrass areas to deep water holes and canals adjacent to the Everglades. You can fish from land, canoes, small boats or more traditional bass fishing boats.

This is the perfect time to find that trophy largemouth bass as well as a variety of freshwater fishes such as bluegills, redear sunfish, warmouth, crappie, pickerel, bowfin, catfish and Florida gar. I enjoy catching all of them, an attitude that has helped me document over 440 International Game Fish Association world records for various species and line classes. Springtime is also a great time to fly fish for largemouth bass. I like poppers that imitate small frogs and insects floating on the surface. I cast these flies with an 8-weight fly rod and nine weight floating fly line. It is important to use weedless flies that you can cast into structure or over lily pads without getting snagged. When the surface flies are not working well, I go to sinking flies in the color black or purple and cast them with a sinking fly line.I have caught many large bass using these techniques. Fly-fishing for smaller fish can be a lot of fun. I recommend a light fly rod, say a 5-Weight rod and a small size popper fly. This method will attract many small fish such a sunfish, oscars and warmouth. Occasionally, a large bass will inhale the small popper fly. This spring I have had the opportunity to take many friends and my wife Roberta fishing and every time we have had great results. Springtime is also a time when you can see many beautiful Everglades birds such as gallinules, egrets herons, storks and ospreys as well as many alligators. All fresh water areas are fragile ecosystems that require your care and attention to remain healthy. Protect the habitat and carefully release all fish you do not intend in taking home to eat. I hope that next time you go fishing in the Everglades you will have a great time.

PESCA DE PRIMAVERA EN LOS EVERGLADES Por Dr. Martin Arรณstegui

20

SOL & MAR MAGAZINE


L

a primavera es mi estación favorita para la pesca de agua dulce en el sur de la Florida. A medida que las aguas se calientan y los niveles de agua en los Everglades alcanzan su punto más bajo de la estación seca, muchos peces migran de las áreas de pasto a pozos profundos y canales adyacentes a los Everglades. Se puede pescar desde tierra, en canoas y botes pequeños o barcos de pesca del bass más tradicionales. SOL & MAR MAGAZINE

21


Este es el momento perfecto para encontrar ese trofeo de lobina negra (bass), así como una gran variedad de peces de agua dulce como blue gill, warmouth, crappie, pickerel, bowfin, oscar y manjuari (Florida gar). Yo disfruto cuando los capturo a todos, lo cual me ha ayudado a documentar más de 440 récords mundiales de la Asociación Internacional de Pesca para varias especies y clases de línea. La primavera también es un buen momento para peces como la lobina negra (bass). Me gustan los poppers (moscas flotantes) que imitan pequeñas ranas e insectos que flotan en la superficie. Lanzo estas moscas con una caña de pescar con mosca de 8 libras de peso y una línea de mosca flotante de 9 peso. Es importante usar moscas que se pueden lanzar en estructuras o sobre hierbas sin que se enganchen. Cuando las moscas de la superficie no funcionan bien, me dirijo a las moscas que se hunden en el color negro o morado y las lanzo con una línea flotante. He capturado muchos bass grandes usando estas técnicas. La pesca con mosca para peces más pequeños puede ser muy divertida. Recomiendo una caña de pescar con mosca liviana, digamos una caña de 5 Peso y una pequeña mosca flotante (Popper). Este método atraerá a muchos peces pequeños como pez blue gill, oscar y warmouth. Ocasionalmente, un bass grande inhalará la pequeña mosca popper. Esta primavera he tenido la oportunidad de pescar con muchos amigos y mi esposa Roberta y cada vez mas hemos tenido excelentesresultados. La primavera también es un momento en el que se pueden ver muchas aves hermosas de los Everglades, como gallinazos, garzas, águilas pescadoras y muchos caimanes. Todas las áreas de agua dulce son ecosistemas frágiles que requieren su cuidado y atención para mantenerse saludable. Proteja el hábitat y libere cuidadosamente todos los peces que no tiene la intención de llevar a casa para comer. Espero que la próxima vez que vaya a pescar en los Everglades lo pase genial.

THE TALE OF A FISH THAT DID NOT GET AWAY By Dr. Martin Arรณstegui

152

SOL & MAR MAGAZINE


O

n a recent trip to world famous Tropic Star Lodge in Panama, my wife Roberta and I had the opportunity to go fishing for the big Black Marlin that have made this lodge so very special. On a beautiful morning we headed out to Zane Gray Reef, an area that is famous for it’s concentration of these magnificent fish. The first order of business was to catch live bonitos for bait. The best way to fish for marlin is to slow troll live bonitos, which are the preferred prey of the marlin.

SOL & MAR MAGAZINE

153


Our mate gave Roberta a very big and bulky rod so she could help catch our live baits. Roberta could not easily handle such a big rod so she asked me to set up a light spinning rod with light line and a small artificial lure called a buck tail jig. Roberta promptly cast the jig and very soon she hooked a small bonito, which was perfect for bait. She pulled on the rod a few times when all of a sudden a huge silver flash appeared next to the bonito. This was a big black marlin that had just eaten Roberta’s bonito. The huge black marlin jumped and spit the bonito but the hook pulled out of the bonito and hooked the marlin. Now Roberta was fighting a black marlin of about 350 pounds with a light spinning rod designed for small fish and 20 pounds monofilament line which was way too light for this fight. The beautiful fish jumped in an acrobatic manner many times and never sounded. After about 45 minutes the captain had positioned the boat so it was backing down as the marlin attempted to swim behind the transom. In order to obtain an official release according to the International Rules of Angling, Roberta had to touch the leader at the end

154

SOL & MAR MAGAZINE


of the line with the tip of the rod. The mate could not grab the leader because it was too short and the rod too long for him to be able to grab the leader. This was the other way in which the capture would be official. At this point, I told Roberta that the only chance to get the official release was if the fish jumped right behind the boat. If this happened I told her that she needed to lean forward and attack the fish with the tip of the rod as it jumped. A few minutes passed and then, all of a sudden the fish broke the surface of the water and jumped just a couple of feet behind the transom of the boat. Roberta attacked the fish with her spinning rod, touched the leader with the tip of the rod and victory was at hand! I was holding my Cannon camera at the ready and was able to document this great capture on film. Indeed, this is the tale of the big fish that did not get away! As is always the case, we released this magnificent fish. We do not believe in killing marlin whose numbers are declining due to overfishing. Catch and Release is the only way for us.

EL CUENTO DE UN PEZ QUE NO SE ESCAPร“ Por Dr. Martin Arรณstegui

162

SOL & MAR MAGAZINE


E

n un viaje reciente al mundialmente famoso Tropic Star Lodge en Panamá, mi esposa Roberta y yo tuvimos la oportunidad de ir a pescar el gran Marlín Negro que ha hecho que este campamento de pesca sea muy especial. En una hermosa mañana nos dirigimos a Zane Grey Reef, un área que es famosa por su concentración de estos magníficos peces. La primera orden del día fue pescar bonitos para usarlos como carnada viva.

SOL & MAR MAGAZINE

163


La mejor manera de pescar el marlin negro es curricanear con los bonitos vivos, que son la presa preferida del marlín. Nuestro marinero le dio a Roberta una vara muy grande y voluminosa para que ella pudiera ayudar a atrapar nuestras carnadas vivas. Roberta no podía manejar con facilidad una vara tan grande, así que me pidió que montara una vara de spinning ligera con una línea ligera y un pequeño señuelo artificial llamado pollo blanco. Roberta prontamente lanzó el señuelo y muy pronto ella enganchó un pequeño bonito, que era perfecto para carnada. Había recuperado línea un par de veces cuando de repente apareció un gran destello plateado al lado del bonito. Este era un gran marlín negro que acababa de comerse el bonito de Roberta. El enorme marlín negro saltó y escupió el bonito, pero el anzuelo se salió del bonito y enganchó al marlín. Ahora Roberta peleaba contra un marlín negro de unas 350 libras con una ligera vara de spinning diseñada para peces pequeños y una línea monofilamento de 20 libras, que era demasiado liviana para esta pelea. El hermoso pez saltó de forma acrobática muchas veces y nunca se profundizo . Después de unos 45 minutos, el capitán había posicionado

164

SOL & MAR MAGAZINE


el bote para que retrocediera, mientras el marlin intentaba nadar detrás de la popa. Para obtener unacaptura oficial de acuerdo con las Reglas Internacionales de Pesca, Roberta tenía que tocar el leader al final de la línea con la punta de la vara. El marinero no pudia agarrar el leader, porque era demasiado corto y la vara demasiado larga para poder agarrarlo. Esta era la otra forma en que la captura sería oficial. En este punto, le dije a Roberta que la única posibilidad de obtener la captura oficial era si el pez saltaba detrás del bote. Si esto sucedía, le dije que necesitaba inclinarse hacia adelante y atacar al pez con la punta de la vara al saltar. Pasaron unos minutos y luego, de repente, el pez rompió la superficie del agua y saltó apenas un par de pies detrás de la popa del bote. Roberta atacó al pez con su vara de spinning, tocó al líder con la punta de la vara y la victoria estaba completada! Tenía preparada mi cámara Cannon y pude documentar esta gran captura con fotos. ¡De hecho, esta es la historia del gran pez que no escapó! Como siempre hacemos, liberamos este magnífico pez. No queremos matar peces de pico, cuyo número está disminuyendo debido a la sobrepesca. Catch and Release es la única forma para nosotros.
