ADDITIONAL REMARKS: Awesome fishing in Puerto Aventuras! My first bill fish caught!!! Left dock around 1:30PM. Three out of the 6 anglers threw extra chum over the sternum (not me :)). We got nothing until 5:05PM and landed Scorpion Bite. I called her Scorpion Bite because I got stung by one that night and lived to tell about it! She was a good fighter. The captain and mates treated her well and released quickly.
