Hi folks,

Last week we had a little of everything.  We started the week with beautiful conditions and fish in the area.  On Thursday, we experienced very hard winds from the North.  The wind kept all the anglers in the area off the water for three days.  The winds finally died down yesterday and we are back to beautiful weather and flat calm seas.  Our temperatures are perfect.  We have just a little nip in the air very early in the morning as the sun is coming up and we are having breakfast.  It is cool enough, that when the boats leave the dock for a day of angling some guests are wearing a light jacket.  These jackets are not staying on long as it is warming up quickly once the sun peaks over the horizon.

On the fishing front, the wind we experienced dropped the water temperatures in the area by about one or two degrees in some areas.  The fishing was slow the first day after the wind but has started to rebound over the past couple of days.  Inshore, we are still seeing good action for larger Rooster fish and Jacks even though we still do not have any Sardina in the area.  We do have some Mullet that has shown up in the area.  Even with the Mullet they are beginning to get very selective.   We are finding that some of them are very active while others will just not respond to any offering and this includes live bait.  This is the time of year when these fish start to enter the spawn so depending on what stage they are in, you could have some very hot and heavy action or just a “no thanks” as the fish ignores your offering.

Offshore the fishing for Marlin has slowed down from what it was a couple of weeks ago.  We still have fish in the area and today I saw more Bill fish flags than I have in the last week or so.  We have had a few Dorado in the area yesterday and today.  I heard on the radio today about a school of Dorado that kept anglers busy for a while.  As many of you know, we have not seen any Tuna over the past few weeks but a boat in the hotel found a few yesterday and once again today.  I hope this is a sign of good things to come.

 I am on the water every day for the next two months.  I will be sure to keep everyone informed of the action.

 Until next time….keep fishing.

Hi Everyone!

The last ten days have brought a few surprises including some colder water offshore. Marlin fishing has slowed down considerably as well as the Dorado. But we’ve had some great inshore fishing, you’ve seen those photos above!

Offshore finds some Marlin and Sailfish, but things have slowed incredibly from what we saw last week. With warmer temperatures occurring, we expect the bite to pick back up very soon. Rumors of tuna have circulated, but like a good treasure map-you’ll have to find them.

Inshore we’ve had an increase in mullet helping produce Roosters feeding and chasing our flies. This has definitely kept this last week interesting and fun….we’re still waiting on the sardines to show and when they do, we know they will fire the fish up. Warmer temps prove spring has sprung-with temperatures in the 80s best bring your sunscreen!

We’re out all week-come join us in paradise,

Until next time….keep fishing.

Hi folks, 

     Well,  April is off to a great start.  Both the offshore fly fishing and inshore fly fishing are going pretty well.  Offshore we have a good number of Sail fish as well as Marlin.  These fish showed up about a week ago and have been here ever since.  Most of the bill fish action is between Punta Pescadero and Rancho Leonero.  These fish have been fairly close to shore with a majority of the fish being seen between two and six miles out.  Do not think this is the only area.  I have heard of reports of fish being caught as far out as fifteen miles off of Pescadero.  I was out today with Bill, Annie, and Chris and we had a nice Sail fish that we teased in but we could just not get it to take Annie’s fly.  Maybe tomorrow.  

    If it is Dorado you are looking for we have the occasional Mahi being caught in and around the Marlin and Sail fish but it is still pretty spotty.  I was out last week with Ron Guerra who is a great friend of mine and we fish together often both here and in Mag Bay. Ron was able to get a couple very nice Dorado.  One fish was about 15lbs. and the other might have been closer to 20lbs.  I did hear on the radio today that one of the boats got a Dorado that was estimated to be about 40lbs.

    We have had a fair number of Porpoise in the area but no Tuna with them so far.  We have had some decent Bonita associated with a few of the pods but no Tuna as of yet.  We should see some any day now.

    Inshore we have some very good action with Rooster fish and Jack Crevelle.  That is if you can find them.  One day we are finding fish and the next day you go back and it is a ghost town.  We are seeing some very good sized fish as you can see from the photo’s above.  These fish are starting to gather to spawn.  We have encountered a few schools of fish where they want nothing to do with you or your offering.  If you can find the school that is willing to play you will have some fun.

    Until next time…keep fishing.
