Happy Holidays- Baja Action is Heating Up

Jeff deBrown


East cape – windy windy windy. It was windy all week and strong enough to keep anglers off the water for most of the week. The wind is  forecast to ramp up again and everyone is curious to see if the wind pushed the roosters that were here out or not. Just waiting on a fishable window to find out and will update soon.

Cabo – the fishing inshore and along the beach has been pretty good. I had a guest get a nice rooster off the beach in San Jose where I told him to go and he hooked up. On the pacific side they are finding roosters, jacks, and a few Sierra along the beach and inshore.

Dorado ec1

Off shore the dorado bite is decent. When you hook a single fish keep it in the water and be patient…. Most if not most of the time there will be others that will show up. The marlin bite is fair and will get better as fish from the north continue to migrate down south.

Mag Bay – the marlin are showing a little better than a week ago, but the prime fishing is still running late and not quite in full swing yet. The fish found were about 40 miles off shore. Closer to shore the dorado are the bite of the week. The area has a lot of buoys right now and the dorado are hanging around them so focus on the structure.

Mangroves – fished great as usual with the usual catches of snapper small jacks etc.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and we look forward to fishing with you soon.

Hi All,

We’re definitely heading into our winter season here in Baja. In the East Cape, the weather is in the 80’s and pleasant, but the main influencer on the fishing right now is the wind, which picked up over the past week and is forecasted to continue this week. The top bite in the East Cape is the Sierra bite at first light, but once the sun is up, the action dies down quickly. There are a few mid-size roosters along the beach, and the marlin bite has been steady, but as far as dorado, this has been the worst season for dorado here in the east cape that we have seen in years. However, the good news is that the action is heating up over in in Magdalena Bay.

I recently had clients in Mag Bay and this is where we will be focusing on fishing this winter season. We’re seeing a solid bite with wahoo and dorado and the action is picking up on striped marlin. The fishing will only get better for striped marlin as water continues to cool down. In the mangroves, the snapper bite is solid and provides great action on light tackle.
