It’s been a busy week here in Baja. The beach fishing is fair. We have fish around but you need to be patient. We didn’t see a thing the last two days and today we saw a bunch today. Overall the fish are here but you need to be patient for your shots.
Offshore is wide open with tuna and marlin. The tuna is a perfect fly rod fish with fantastic action when you hook up. They are all football size and perfect for someone looking to catch one on the fly, or if you want your heart rate to pick up. They have been eating small squid and red crabs. Most of them have been south off of Cabo Pulmo but are pretty much everywhere.
We are seeing the occasional Dorado with the majority of them being found to the North. The marlin have been spread out all over with a good number of smaller blue marlin (about 250#’s) 25 miles to our North. If anyone has any questions please give us a call. Happy to discuss the area.

Fishing overall is pretty good down here at the moment. There are a few good roosters hanging around off the beach and some small to medium jacks as well. Patience is required, but there are some good shots to be had.
Off-shore we’re seeing a few more Dorado move in. They have been with the tuna that are stacked up by the lighthouse. We’ve been using chunk squid to try and get them up. We’re getting a lot of nice trigger fish on the fly as well, as they are coming into the squid.
Further outside, there have been nice tuna with the porpoise, but finding them is tough as they have been moving a lot. Conventional fishing has been very good for tuna using chunk squid.
The water temps are very good averaging 81 degrees and the skies have been clear and blue. Come on down or give us a call to book soon.
The Reel Baja
Week of May 15th.
We had a hard wind until yesterday. After it died down, we picked up a couple of small roosters. Offshore, there have been some good tuna and lots of skip jack. The marlin bite is getting better and there are roosters from the boat.
The pacific side is wide open, with all the jacks and roosters you want.
Fishing on the beach is improving. Shots are there, but not wide open.
I have the group here this week from the Salt Water’s Edge fly shop in RI. Will update again soon.
