Hi Folks,

We had a very mixed bag this week here in East Cape Baja, with a couple of challenging days early on and some unforgettable fishing later in the week.

I had the pleasure of having the guys from Gig Harbor Fly Shop fish with me for four days this week. The first two days where challenging due to some tough winds from the north, but we did find ladyfish, jacks and rooster fish. Over the next two days it all came together and the offshore fishing was spectacular.

Offshore: We are seeing good numbers of billfish and marlin offshore mixed in with dorado,tuna and bonito. The schools of tuna we are finding are averaging 8-25 pounds and the bonito are in the 8-pound range. The dorado fishing is not wide open at the moment, but if you have some sardina on the boat you will have fun with the school once you locate them. The sailfish bite has been fantastic recently, and if billfish fishing on a fly rod is something you enjoy, or have never tried before, then I suggest you give us a call and get down here as soon possible, and take advantage of the great sailfish fishing.

Inshore: The inshore fishery has been productive, but the wind we had earlier in the week really dirtied it up a fair amount. We did find some roosterfish early in the week, and it did start to clear up nicely towards the end of the week, but we have been focused mostly on the offshore bite because of how good it has been.

We are set for a great fall season, and if you want to come down and fish Magdalena Bay this fall or winter, please give us a call and reserve your dates as they will fill up. The marlin, wahoo and inshore fishery is looking to be nothing short of excellent this year in Magdalena Bay, and with the amount of bait fish in the area, it’s going to be a great season.

Tight lines,

Jeff.

This last week in East Cape, Baja has been a wet one, with lots of thunderstorms, but the fishing has remained good despite all the rain. The recent storms have led to a fair amount of floating debris, which is in turn providing good floating structure for dorado. Over the last week, we have seen good numbers of dorado, with anglers catching as many as they want most days, especially around the lighthouse area.

Sailfish are still around, and the striped marlin bite should be approaching soon as the water temps continue to cool.

Magdalena Bay is seeing some good numbers of wahoo at the moment, and because Mag Bay has a healthy amount of bait fish throughout the fall and winter season, it’s a smorgasbord for the game fish that inhabit the area during that time of the year. We are looking forward to a very productive fall and winter season.

We do still have some openings for Mag Bay, so please contact us to lock in your dates.
Also, make sure to find us on Facebook and Twitter so you can follow our daily updates.

Tight lines,

Jeff.

Hi folks,

The weather has been fantastic this week in Baja and the fishing has stayed pretty solid. It’s September, so, yes, it’s hot. But when the fishing is this consistent, it’s worth it. I did get wind from some captains that there are some good schools of bait fish in the area, and the best part of this is that there are hungry rooster fish in hot pursuit on sardina and mullet.

As for tuna, they are still around and are feeding heavily on red crabs as their bait of choice. Most tuna are football size, but there are some larger tuna in the mix, with some tuna in the 35-40 pound range.

This summer has been off the hook for us in terms of tuna, dorado and billfish. The billfish have been eager to chase a fly and the sailfish numbers have been consistent all summer long. We are set to have a great fall based on the quality of the fishing we have experienced this summer and we are really looking forward to it.

As for Magdalena Bay, we are set to start fishing it towards the end of October, and we are currently taking bookings for the fall and winter. We are taking a trip in a few weeks to look for snook in the mangroves. That’s right folks, you don’t have to go to Florida to find great snook fishing. Mag Bay has a fantastic snook fishery. Wahoo are starting to show up as well and there are many other species to fish for in a single day to round out a perfect day on the water. Contact us for available dates.

Tight lines,

Jeff.
