Seas were choppy. Amalita went 0/3, Chasin Tail 0/1 and Titiago 0/1. Chola went 0/0 and Raquel 0/1. Panga Don Teofilo went 1/2. Panga Explorer went 0/0. Fishing conditions seemed quite good but bite was slow for most of the fleet.

June 4, 2017– Captain Calero again fished on Golfito but had no action from marlin with group from Argentina. Chasin Tail went 1/1 on striped marlin and Amalita 1/1 on blue marlin. Current was pushing North.
