for marlin, it needs to be SUNNY - they use a topwater bait like a metalic spinner... So if its overcast, the sun wont shine on it.
They also use downriggers for the deep water fish a trawl...
we caught a baracuda that was huge, and a wahoo... unfortunately the wahoo was eaten by a shark during the fight to reel him in.
this was 20 years ago, so i cant tell you who I used.

The best fishing in the area in my opinion (deep seas) is for Mahi-Mahi when they are running. This occurs from spring through early summer. When the Mahi run you can catch fish all day long. When they are not running it is very much a hit or miss deal.
These are just my opinions based on my personal experiences deep sea fishing here, the Bahamas and in the Florida Keys.

The day I went was overcast, stormy / rough and even rained for a little while.

Here in Tx, I use the cattle boats - if a kingfish nails your tackle, we do the "kingfish walk"
thats when you're moving tot he front of the boat along the side going ober/under the guys next to you to avoid line tangling! LOL!

One of the coolest things I ever saw was a video of a Marlin taking bait. I met these guys from Penn Internation while fishing and they had made a video where they attached a camera just in front of the bait. The Marlin would swim up and kind of tap it with their bill and when they felt comfortable.....BAM, they hit it like a bomb. Cool stuff.
Had a Tiger Shark bite a White Marlin in half directly behind the boat once, about 150 yards off-shore of Los Pinos. That rocked! Multiple times when catching Wahoo I have had Dolphin come in and attack the hooked fish.
When it is working, IMHO, there are few things as exciting as Marlin fishing. When the line pops off the clip and the reel starts zinging.....oh yeah!!
