The fishing here in the East Cape Baja has been action packed. The weather is heating up and we are seeing some nice fish. Also, the sardines are still a long ride out, but if you have them the fishing can be really good.
Sailfish: One of my captains reported that there is a very strong bite of sailfish down South. We will be exploring it more this week and report back.
Dorado: there is a good amount of Sargasso weeds floating around and holding some nice dorado. Once we find one or two fish we can generally stay on them providing some great angling.
Beaches: currently the beaches have some nice sized jacks and roosterfish.. However, the fish are spooky making it difficult to get them to eat, so you have to be patient and pick your shots. Although spooky, we have caught some big fish…
My client on mothers day caught a 40 pound roosterfish and a 40 pound jack off the beach. She has only been fly fishing for two years and handled it like a pro! If you would like any information on any of our trips, please give us a call, and we will be happy to assist you.
The beaches are still fishing well for Jacks and Roosterfish. The average Roosterfish is 7-15 pounds with some grande fish in the mix. The sardina are still a ways out and we have not spent much time going after them as we lose precious fishing time, so instead of fishing inshore we have focused strictly on the beaches and done well.
With all the action on the beaches it can get crowded as we mentioned in our last report, However, is you are patient and pick your shots, the effort will pay off. Marlin and Dorado are scattered and we did see some wind pick up the other day but nothing that would prevent us from fishing.Last season we had one of our best Roosterfish seasons and this season is shaping up to be another stellar season. If you would like any rates, or have questions about the trips, please give us a call and we will be happy to assist you.
The Reel Baja is looking into several hosted trips so stay tuned and we will be releasing a newsletter shortly with some updates on the trips.
We have had great fishing from both the boats as well as the beach. We have good numbers of Roosterfish and Jacks prowling the beaches as well as inshore.
The beaches are busy with a lot of anglers throwing things at them at the moment and anglers need to be on top of their game.
From the boats we have excellent fly fishing for marlin and currently we are experiencing multiple chances per. Recently there has been times that two or three marlin show up in the pattern at the same time. Dorado are scattered and in the mix as well.
We are seeing some excellent fly fishing for nice skip jack as well just to round things out.
On the bait front. The sardines are a long ride away and are located to our North at the tip of Ceralvo Island. It’s an hour and a half ride one way, but its well worth the ride if you don’t mind a little less fishing time.
We fished to the North this week and had some great action and had many large Roosterfish, plus some yellow tail crashing the bait. I saw another fly fishing angler land about a #40 Yellowtail. While on the beach we had some of the biggest Roosterfish I have ever seen chasing our flies!! However, we just couldn’t get one to commit. Overall we had an incredible week last week and we are set to repeat it again this week. If you would like any package information or trip details, please give us a call.
