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.
The Reel Baja
Week of April 24th.
Things here in Baja are starting to get pretty interesting. We had a few days with strong winds that made things challenging, but for the most part, we have had great days out with clients and got some great fly rod action.
Spring is here and the fish know it’s spring as well. Along the beach, the activity is starting to pick up with some nice fish on the beach. All along in the area, there is plenty of bait around and we are primed for an amazing season. This past week we had solid action with roosterfish and jacks from the boat in Cabo and there is marlin starting to show up as the water warms up.
We are set to be out on the water over the next few days and I will have a new report up shortly. If anyone has any questions or would like to know which prime season dates are still open this season give us a call.
