Susay Rock was discovered
in the 1970's by Colonel Ernesto Borja, a former mayor and an Ilocano from La Union, when
he was assigned to the Navy post in San Vicente, Sta. Town.
Susay Rock is well-known to
Philippine anglers as the Fishing Paradise North,
Sailfish capital of the Philippines and the Angler's Mecca of
the Philippines. Every Philippine angler worth his/her salt makes at least
one trip to Susay Rock every year.
Susay Rock is located along
the Japan or Kuroshoi current in the Pacific Ocean, one of the major currents
traveling the world's oceans like the Gulfstream in the Atlantic Ocean.
Pelagic fish ride this
current and that is why Susay Rock holds an abundance of pelagic fishes like Blue &
Black Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, Narrow-barred Mackerel, Yellowfin Tuna and the like.
It was also the site of
several international billfish sportfishing tournaments and is still the site of local
sportfishing competitions by the Philippine Game Fishing Foundation and the Philippine
Sport Fishing Club during the months of April, May & June.
