Hi everyone, I hope the start to the new year is going well for all of you. As I write this report the air is cool outside with heavy overcast skies and falling rain. This is normal for us as we typically see a couple rainy days this time of year. Overall the weather this past week was as expected. We saw mostly sunny skies with medium to heavy winds out of the North on most days here in the East. Out of Cabo, the weather was quite cool in the mornings with overcast skies giving way to sunshine around nine or ten am on most days. The winds were not a factor out of Cabo this last week but we did see some big swells on the Pacific side making fishing close to the beach difficult. With the winds in the East Cape there was not many boats out fishing. What little traffic did go out found a few Sierra and small to medium dorado close to shore. Most of the boats were back in early as the wind was up by ten in the morning.
Out of Cabo San Lucas we found some decent fly fishing for rooster fish. We also found scattered Sierra and a few small jacks. Overall the fishing was a little slower than typical. This should start to turn around in the next few days as we did see more bait as the week progressed. Over in Magdalena Bay, this is the time to see the whales. They are showing and will be providing some of the best whale watching on the planet for the next few weeks. This time of year its also a great time to fish the Mangroves in Magdalena Bay. For January we start to see large snook move in. We have been seeing them in good numbers so far. We have also had good action for snapper and grouper. If you are in the area be sure to take in the whales but don’t forget about the mangroves.
Typically the months of February and March are very good for fly fishing out of Cabo on the Pacific side. We tend to see the fly fishing for roosters and big jacks pick up as well as a massive Sierra invasion. We still have some openings and are currently offering a special for this time frame. Give us a call for details.
I hope everyone gets a chance to get out and go fishing soon. Until next time tight lines.
Christmas week was slow in Cabo but picking up. There are a few jacks and roosters inshore. Yesterday we nailed a few great jacks. Offshore there is marlin and that’s probably the best bite. It’s not wide open and a bit tough on the fly as they have been hanging deep. There is a lot of marlin on the finger bank and they are chasing teasers and are fly fishing friendly. The only problem is it’s a 40-mile ride to the bank.
On the non-windy days in the East Cape fishing has been pretty good for this time of year. We have some small to medium (8-20 lbs) dorado around. They have been biting best early in the morning and tapering off midday. We also have some rooster fish around as well as skip jack tuna. There are small sardines and small ballyhoo along the beach and they have been chasing them.
It looks like we might get some wind here in a day or two for a couple of days. After that, it looks good for a couple of days. I will be here fishing in Cabo until the 2nd. I will be sure to report how the trip goes. Until next time tight lines.
The fall season is off to a bang in Mag Bay. Lots and lots of marlin here in Mag Bay. Weather has been great although we got a bit of week towards the end of the week, the fishing has been fantastic.
Also, some small to medium tuna in the banks with a few dorado out the entrance that are keeping anglers busy. The marlin fishing is something to behold and the hottest I’ve seen for a long time.
Fish feeding on bait balls everywhere as we have raised more fish than we have seen over the last few seasons. They are keyed in on the bait so getting them to come to the teasers is tough at times, however, there are enough fish so we are getting lots of shots every day.
In the mangroves, the fishing is very good as well. Snook, grouper, corvina, Bay bass, pompano, and snapper all here and the fishing has been good.
Home in the East Cape lots of north wind so not much fishing opportunities. We have a few dates open so please call with any questions or request a trip.
