Bisbee’s East Cape Offshore Tournament was held this past week, wrapping up on Saturday with the heaviest Yellowfin tuna caught on Inman Bank near Cabo weighing in at 262 pounds!!



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The striped marlin are still around, with the biggest numbers found around 1/2 – 2 miles out, near La Ribera.  If you enjoy fishing for marlin on the fly, or have never tried it, then we strongly suggest you head on down here as soon as you can. Our water conditions are perfect right now.  Stable water temperatures and low chlorophyll levels have provided some beautiful blue water to fish in at the moment; which means the marlin fishing will stay strong for some time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mixed in with the marlin is dorado averaging in size between 10-20 pounds.  They are feeding very aggressively and are very willing to take the fly. Once we locate the fish and we get a hold of one dorado within the school, the others follow. We then cast to others in the school and the action heats up before the fish move off.

The rooster fishing has slowed down quite a bit from what it has been, but we are still seeing fish and we are able to take great shots at them.  The sailfish action has been fair, and most have been found just east of us around 8-12 miles offshore.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s great when we are landing some good fish on each trip. My client this week was Jim, and he truly did an amazing job on the beach this week. Jim hooked several roosters and landed some good fish. However, we lost a big rooster of around 40lbs on Friday. When he took off on his initial run, the line got wrapped around the reel seat and it broke off! But, that’s fishing for you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The fishing will remain good all through the summer and into the fall, so contact us for open dates, and we will be happy to help you book your dates. This has been a unforgettable season, and we want to thank everyone for the support, and great memories and we look forward to fishing with you soon. You can also find us on Facebook and Twitter, so follow us for our daily news and photos.

Tight lines,

Hi folks,

This last week the weather has been pretty kind to us and the fishing has been really good.  Not much has changed in terms of conditions, but the main thing is that the fishing is still red hot. Sardines are around, but it’s spread really thin and they are very small, but we are still getting into some great fish off the beaches and offshore, even with the bait fish not being present. Right now we have some roosters on the beach, as well as scattered dorado and marlin. If you look around you, will find them.

Luckily over the last few weeks, we have had all the football tuna you want to catch, but they are a long ride out. Average range from shore is around 25 and 50 miles out, with the average tuna around 12 pounds, but there are some twenty pounders in the mix. Once we find the schools we shut the boat down and cast right into the boil. The schools are still mainly feeding on the the red crabs as the main food source. If you have the arms for it, you’ll have a bent rod all day long.

This last Sunday, I went out and did some exploring on the beaches and found some good fish in preparation for my clients on Tuesday. Plus, Jeff Solis comes out on Wednesday and we are set to do some fishing for a couple of days. We will be focusing most of our efforts on the beaches, and even though the Roosters are showing spawning behavior, they are more than willing to aggressively chase down the fly.

Be sure to check out our catches on Facebook and Twitter over the week.

The fishing is going to stay hot all summer long, so come on down to East Cape Baja and get in on the action. We will post more photos and reports shortly. For booking details check out:

Hi folks,

Things here in Baja are heating up!  Not only the air temp’s, as well as the humidity, but the water temperatures are rising as well.  It is definitely summer here in Baja.  As you can see from the shot below, taken just a couple days ago, the water is providing us with excellent fly fishing conditions.


We’re are seeing excellent fly fishing off shore for tuna, dorado, and marlin.  We’ve go lot’s of football size tuna in the area.  They have been between eight and twenty pounds with the average fish weighing about twelve pounds.  These fish are feeding on small red crabs that are currently in our waters.  We’ve been seeing the fish” breezing” on the surface feeding on the crabs.  Our best technique this week was once we located one of these schools we’ve been shutting down the boat and casting into the boils the tuna are creating as they feed on the crabs.  This method has been providing some great action.

 

Another Baja Rooster fish!

The dorado are being caught off the buoy’s in front of Los Frailes.   We have had pretty consistent action for smaller to medium sized dorado for the past few weeks.  They were to our North a couple weeks ago but now they are concentrated to the South.

Another Gallo from the beach!!

I have been spending most of my days on the beach.  We’re seeing some excellent fly fishing for Rooster fish.  A lot of people are complaining that the sardina are not available and that without them the fishing for rooster fish is tough.  We are seeing great success.  Yes we are seeing some of the fish showing spawning behavior that is typical this time of year.  We are also seeing plenty of fish that are very aggressive, hungry, and willing to eat the fly.  Sure, some of these fish are not the “grande” variety but they are rooster fish on the fly and they are fun!!

Just plain fun!!

I will be out once again every day this week. I will be fishing most of the week on the beach.  The action we are currently seeing is just to hard to pass up.  If the action on the beach falls off we will jump in a boat and fish the out side.  I love this time of year.  You have so many options and so many species to fish for.    I will be sure to let you all know what we find.

Until next time…Keep fly fishing!

And we still have a few big ones out of the boat.
