We had an incredible weekend on the water with clients and the fishing is nothing short of amazing. The dorado bit stills remains the top bite, however the bonito and tuna fishing is equally as good. On Saturday we had a short day on the water as my clients had to leave early…However, we caught and landed 16 dorado before 11:30am and were back in before noon. Bonito are averaging between 10-20lbs and the boiling action around the boat has been very exciting.
As we head into October we are entering one of the best months in the East Cape as far as the offshore game goes. The storms are done and the fishing offshore is pretty wide open… Dorado, bonito, tuna and marlin are all around and very willing to play ball.
We are back out on the water Monday and several days this week. If anyone has questions about October, or you would like to check on available dates, please email, or give us a call and we will be happy to assist you. Look for a fresh report on Wednesday and I will have a new set of photos client photos up.
Luckily, the storm that was brewing last weekend has not affected our area much at all. Although it did rain for a few days, most of the storm broke up over the mountains.
Recently the sardina have shown up and we have had plenty of chum to get the dorado, bonito and tuna all fired up. The bonito are all football-sized and some of the dorado have been pushing over 30 lbs.
The marlin bite has been pretty good on the East Cape, but we will be focusing on Mag Bay for our upcoming winter marlin season. We had an incredible marlin season in Mag Bay last season, and this season should be equally as good.
The beaches have been quiet lately. I did take an ATV ride the other day scouting for some late holding roosters, but, I did not see any… Historically, we have continued to catch roosters into the first part of October, however, some wind has started to blow in from the north making the beaches difficult to fish.
I’ll be down in Mag Bay over the weekend scouting the area and I will post my findings. With the sardina around, the season will get rolling shortly and it will hopefully be an incredible fishing season in Mag Bay.
Over this last week we had more rain from the tropical storms just offshore. Though it rained, there were days we got out and did some fishing and we had a blast. We found dorado, tuna and marlin and the most best bite by far is dorado. I did get some reports that fish have shown up in Mag Bay and I will be down in Mag Bay this week doing some exploration fishing and will post updates from the water.
Last season the doardo fishing was incredible and we are excited about the upcoming season! Over the next week or two The Reel Baja will be publishing several variations of packages and trips for Mag Bay so be sure to stay tuned.
This last weekend I spent some time on the beaches looking for roosterfish and did not see any… The beach season is coming to a close, but I will keep an eye to see if we can get a few shots at some late season fish off the beach…
