Each year this cetacean chooses the coasts of this region to mate and give birth to their young. However, there is little information available about this population, which limits the development of good practices for the use and management of this resource, as well as for its conservation. The North Shore Peru Expeditions, a pioneer whale watching company in Tumbes, has been operating since 2011, specializing in the offer of ecotourism expeditions by professionals, contributing to the continuous learning to continue moving towards responsible tourism, committed to research, scientific progress and the social and environmental challenges of our time and community. The lower part of the caudal fin in humpback whales constitutes a unique pattern in shape, size, color and natural markings, comparable to our fingerprint, and helps us identify them at the individual level. Thanks to the photo-identification, we know that most of them are the same whales that return to our coasts year after year. High Fishing We set sail in the early morning in search of tuna, starting at 8 miles we released the Rapalas looking to navigate the sub-surface isobaths with specific characteristics of depth, temperature and currents that make this space an ideal ecosystem for the search of pelagic fish such as tuno, the parrot or the Barracuda. We have the most experienced crew in the area, composed of Fisheries Engineers, former members of the Navy, Pilots and Enamm Yacht Employers, as well as expert captains knowledgeable about the area. Coastal Fishing We will sail on the NSPE yacht heading northeast, along the coast of the Tumbes coast. With the ship in motion, we will release the lures, special for fishing in the "trolling" mode. These lures will sail by sliding fifty (50) meters behind the stern and approximately ten (10) meters deep, pretending to be a sardine, a mackerel or any other fish similar to the varied range of prey of the Mero Murique. Crossing rocky ridges, we will wait for the deafening shriek of the reel, indicating the Mero's bite or, in some cases, the "lock" on a rock in the background. While we go appreciating different species of cetaceans, birds and fish, we will sail for some miles until we reach the reefs of Punta Sal, a place that consists of rocky underwater mountains where abundant fauna converges. Shore Fishing After 45 minutes and almost a hundred launches, and when patience started to turn my back, ZAS !, I felt a powerful pull that caused the cane to take an exaggeratedly curved shape. I managed to see the bug jump into the sky, briefly revealing its identity . It was a Snook! I recognized him for his characteristic black "vein" that delineates most of his body, which was seen every time he jumped, making an aggressive contortion, that famous nod of the Robalo, that strong impulse to escape and survive, that fight of the fish to get off the hook by abruptly moving his head from one side to the other ... With much effort, I finally managed to get to the shore that legendary northern fish he had heard so much about. My first Robalo! At that moment the applause of the curious who had come to see tremendous spectacle returned me from some distant place, where there had only been me, the animal and an arduous struggle on the shores of the sea of Punta Sal. Now I was surrounded by people , cameras, congratulations Raúl, what a good bug! How did you catch it? How about fish!
