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.
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.
The Reel Baja
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.
