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.
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.

Week of March 13th, 2017.
Over the last week or two, I have been spending most of my time with clients in Cabo Fishing had ben a bit difficult last week, but this week is shaping up well. In Cabo, we do have some sierra and a few small roosters, plus some big jacks in the mix. The wind had been a challenge on some days, but on the flip side, the East Cape has seen some beautiful weather.
In the East Cape, we have some big skipjack tuna and they are always a blast to catch. Most of the action has been around La Rivera. Overall there isn’t much to report out of the East Cape as things are slowly starting to get up and going due to our windy season. With a few boats going out this week we will have more to report next week. I was on the beach scouting on Tuesday morning and saw lots of ladyfish. Overall we have had some great days weather wise in the East Cape, but its every other day that we strong wind and its forecast to pick up again this weekend.
Overall, in Cabo, plus the East Cape fishing is hit or miss but it’s to be expected as we transition into spring,however if you get a break in the weather there are definitely fish in the area to have some fun with.
