This past week we have seen some pretty good fishing on the Pacific side out of Cabo San Lucas. We have had a little bit of wind on some days but overall the sea conditions have been great. We have been seeing good numbers of roosterfish along with some jacks. The Sierra bite is starting to wind down as the water is warming slightly but when you find the schools they have been responsive. We continue to see a strong marlin bite out of Cabo San Lucas. This marlin action has been very steady the past couple of weeks. It shows no signs of slowing down so it should be another good week for marlin on the fly.
Over in the East Cape the wind has reared its ugly head once again. It has been blowing hard from the North most of the week. It is forecast to settle down over the next couple of days. Once it does we will be able to get back out there and see what’s happening. Before the wind we had good action close to shore for dorado and a few rooster fish. We also were seeing great action for big skip jack tuna and some yellowfin tuna. The Marlin bite in the East Cape was steady but after this wind, we will need to see if it’s still on.
Looking ahead the wind here in the East Cape will be a factor in fishing this week. As I mentioned it is forecast to settle down in a couple days but this time of year that can change. We will just have to wait and see.
On the Pacific side, we should continue to see very good fishing. I will be fishing out of Cabo for a week or so starting tomorrow. I will be sure to report how the action is.
Sorry for the delay in the reports. Its been busy over here with some very happy clients. Scroll through for some pics below.
Mag Bay: Recently we where in Mag Bay for the last few weeks. To say the very least mag Bay is just incredible at the moment. Over the last few weeks we have had some really happy guests fishing with us. The marlin bite is some of the best we have seen in years off Thetis Banks. With the great marlin bite we have lots of tuna and dorado in the mix. The mangroves are as good as it get right now. Our clients are hooking into some awesome snook, bonefish, grouper, jacks, plus several species of pargos. These species are fantastic on light rods and gave our clients lots of action.
East Cape: The weather has been holding steady recently. On good weather days we are seeing some big cruising roosters with a few small ones to. Since theirs a ton of bait in the area there is some decent fish being caught. The beach is also seeing ladyfish, jack and a few pompano as well. The other day i was walking on the beach with my son when we saw a bait ball getting destroyed by roosters. Only problem was that I didn’t have a rod!
I’ll be around this holiday season so if anyone wants some time on the water in Mag Bay, or Cabo feel free to give us a call. We have a few open dates and ready to do some fishing!
The storm that hit last week is long gone with no new storms on the horizon. On the east cape side, the town is up and running with all facilities open as well as all hotels. Everything is normal here in the east cape. Cabo got hit hard and is still cleaning up but doing well overall. Even though Cabo is in full clean up mode that does not mean it’s No reason not to come. The fishing on the east cape is fantastic!
The beach fishing is so, so and hit or miss at the moment. It all depends on where you are overall and if you put in some time you will find some fish off the beach. Water clarity is getting better daily. The best spots to hit now are where the arroyos are running into the beaches. There is lots of bait and fishing is great but the water is off color, so it’s all blind fishing. We are catching all kinds of species including jacks, roosters, small Bonita, snapper and needle fish. All great fun on light rods.
LOT’S OF SARDINES AROUND!! Great bait for inshore and off shore expeditions which are all producing incredible fishing. Offshore the Dorado fishing is awesome!! Lots of fish in and around the debris from the storm. Also, lots of tuna and skip jack out there in the mix. All perfect fly rod size and tons of fun. If anyone has any interest in coming down to get into so great fishing I would recommend coming down ASAP. The fishing is extremely solid and we have some dates available for guiding. Things in Mag Bay are heating up!! Fishing there this year is going to be awesome as the water cools down and our season starts in early November in Mag Bay. I still have a few dates open for Mag Bay so let me know if there are any questions I can answer.
