The fishing in Cabo is really good at the moment. Our clients are happy and along the shore there are A LOT of big jacks! Schools of 50-150 fish are cruising the beaches displaying spawning rituals. However, if you can find the right group they willing to eat a fly. We threw to maybe 30 different schools the other day and most of them didn’t respond, but about 5 schools did!

January Snapper

It was really exciting and these are aggressive fish and BIG. Size range is in the 20 – 40 pound range. A little closer to shore there are also some scattered smaller jacks and roosters in the 5-10 pound range. We also found the first big schools of Sierra this week in Cabo.

Sierra were on the small to medium size and very willing to bite and we caught them both deep, plus on top water flies as well. Found a few snapper this week as well although last week we had plenty of snapper around, but as few as we saw they are really fun to hook up with on the fly. Off shore in Cabo there is a few scattered dorado and plenty of marlin. The marlin in front of the light house are staying deep, but If you want to fly fish for them you need to run out to the Golden Gate Bank for some action.

Here on the East Cape the weather was beautiful with no wind and calm conditions and we have very good schools of sardines along the shore. On the nice days there are some roosters and Sierra pushing the bait and feeding in the mornings. The wind is starting to come back up today and it is forecast to blow for the next few days… So, if you are in the East Cape I suggest you get up early and try and get a little fishing in before the winds kick up around 9 or 10 am.

If anyone has any questions regarding trips don’t hesitate to call.

Tight lines,

Jeff.

Hi All,

Fished Cabo all this week and it’s going very well. Overall, the weather has been great and we only had a few cold mornings. The sardina have finally shown up and this is one of the better years we are seeing this amount of sardina around! This of course is helping out the fishing and we are not complaining.

January rooster

I’ve had my clients out on the boat all week and we have found tons of small roosters and jacks. The snapper bite has been fantastic and we broke off several this week in Cabo while trying to get them to the boat. There are also some scattered dorado around and if you look for them you will find some quality fish. Mag Bay has not seen much activity and your best bet will be in the mangroves.

January Jack

East Cape: The East Cape has seen some wind and there are some days that we can get out on the water, but overall our focus has been in Cabo out of the wind.

January Snapper

On the calmer days there are some boats heading out and they are catching a few nice size dorado. The beach at first light is seeing sierra but as soon as the suns up it’s pretty much done. If anyone has any questions please feel free to call for trip updates and availability.

Tight lines,

Jeff
