The angling has been pretty good for tuna throughout the week here in East Cape. The dorado bite has slowed down a little and we are not seeing the numbers we saw a few weeks ago.  Bill fish are scattered around and if you look you will them, but we are very focused on the marlin bite that will be in full swing in Magdalena Bay shortly. We did see some wind this week which kept a lot of boats in for a couple days as conditions were less than favorable.

The beach is very dirty at the moment and the rain showers from yesterday did not help the conditions at all on the beach and only made the water dirtier. The grande roosterfish have been elusive, especially with the dirty water on the beaches, but we are finding some small rooster fish on the inside while fishing out of boats.

Magdalena Bay has come alive and the mangroves in the bay are fishing pretty well at the moment, with nice catches of grouper, corvina and plenty of bay bass, plus the occasional snapper. As the season moves on in the next few weeks, the mangroves will only start to fish better. Keep in mind that we do also have snook in the mangroves at Mag Bay. That’s right, you don’t have travel all the way to Florida to find some snook, we have them here in Baja.

Tight lines,

Hi folks,

The storm passed through and the weather cleared up this week leading to great conditions. Earlier in the week, we had some wind out of the North, but it dropped off  and gave us a window of a couple of days with no wind. However, the wind did pick up again today, and is forecast to blow for the next day or two. Otherwise, the weather is perfect at the moment, with lows in the 60’s, and highs in the 80’s later in the day.

Tuna: The tuna have shown up again, and several boats came in today with several flags, so hopefully they stick around for a few days.

Dorado: Dorado have been solid all season, and some bigger dorado have been found holding around some structure after the storm, so if you fid some structure you may find some bigger fish around it.

Roosterfish: Roosterfish have been sporadic, but reports are coming in that there are some big roosters hanging around the beaches… If you know where to look, and you are patient, you will get some shots at some grande roosters and hopefully we will have some pics this week if it all comes together for us with my clients.

Marlin: As the water temperatures have continued to drop, the striped marlin bite has really picked up. We will be in Magadela Bay in just a few weeks, and we are looking forward to a very strong marlin season. There is good amounts of sardina around and this winter is shaping up to be as good as this summer season we just had.

If you have any inquires about our seasons, or Madagalena Bay, please feel free to contact us. Also, find us on Facebook and like our page. We post daily and weekly updates on the Facebook page:

Hi folks,

This last week we had a very productive week for both dorado and marlin.  Tropical storm Paul is offshore at the moment, and it will bring some rain over the next few days. The wind did pick up from the North on Friday and has blown strongly through Sunday, stirring up the water and making conditions a bit more difficult, but it will clear up in the next few days.

Last week we had some fantastic marlin and sailfish angling, but this week, the marlin fishing has been even better. We are seeing the most marlin around La Ribera and Punta Colorado.

Dorado: The dorado bite has been really consistant this month. Last week, we did see some smaller schooling dorado, but this week, we found bigger dorado and fewer schooling dorado.

Magdalena Bay is fishing really well right now and will be our primary focus this winter. If you are considering fishing with us this winter for marlin, wahoo and many other game fish, please contact us and check available dates.

Also, be sure to find us on Facebook and Twitter for our daily and weekly updates.
