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.
HOT!! The weather is hot. Been pretty nice with no storms. One overcast day last week but overall lots of sun and heat. Bring sunscreen.
* Beach – it’s been a little difficult. There are a few fish in and around on the beach, but not many. The ones that are here are big though. My buddy Solis was here for 5 days to hit the beach. He got one nice fish over the 5 days, but it was a beauty. Overall, from the beach, it’s slow but not undoable if you put in the time.
*Offshore – it’s been ok. We have had decent fishing for tuna and dorado mostly to the south. There was a nice school of tuna out with the porpoise but a commercial tuna boat came and wrapped them up.
There are a lot of marlins both blue and striped but they are scattered so you have to go looking. No real concentration in a certain spot. You have a chance just about anywhere.
We have been seeing a few more roosters from the boat in the deeper water over the numbers on the beach. It might be due to water temps as the water inshore is pretty warm at the moment. But this is just a theory… Defiantly a few more from the boats than the beach so i’d focus on the deeper water.
We do have some dates available so if anyone is interested in coming down please call.
Last week we had a storm brewing off the coast. Overall the storm only brought in a bit of rain and no damage due to the wind. Over the last week, the water has been clearing up nicely. The dorado bite that was wide open a few weeks ago has tapered off but there are still some nice fish around. In the next few weeks, we expect the dorado bite to be solid.
On the outside: a few boats have been coming in with marlin flags plus the tuna bite is strong offshore. However, it’s a long ride out to find them, but when you do the action is exciting.
On the inside: Roosters are cruising the beaches and several grande fish have been sen this week. We had a few exciting chases but the fish are spooky. In the mix is big jacks inshore. We saw several in the 50lb range this last week. Several dates are open July-August if anyone is considering coming down now is the time to book. We are out this week with clients so look out for some great pics coming soon.
