The angling has been pretty good for tuna throughout the week here in East Cape. The dorado bite has slowed down a little and we are not seeing the numbers we saw a few weeks ago.  Bill fish are scattered around and if you look you will them, but we are very focused on the marlin bite that will be in full swing in Magdalena Bay shortly. We did see some wind this week which kept a lot of boats in for a couple days as conditions were less than favorable.

The beach is very dirty at the moment and the rain showers from yesterday did not help the conditions at all on the beach and only made the water dirtier. The grande roosterfish have been elusive, especially with the dirty water on the beaches, but we are finding some small rooster fish on the inside while fishing out of boats.

Magdalena Bay has come alive and the mangroves in the bay are fishing pretty well at the moment, with nice catches of grouper, corvina and plenty of bay bass, plus the occasional snapper. As the season moves on in the next few weeks, the mangroves will only start to fish better. Keep in mind that we do also have snook in the mangroves at Mag Bay. That’s right, you don’t have travel all the way to Florida to find some snook, we have them here in Baja.

Tight lines,

Hi folks,

It’s been a busy week as we welcomed a new edition to the family on Wednesday – Kevin Jeffrey deBrown, 9lbs. 2oz. 21 inches long – and I’m already teaching him how to cast.

The fishing has been excellent lately as the sports boats are all coming in with flags flying on the boat. The two top bites for the week have been dorado and yellowfin tuna.

The tuna are still around and are being found with porpoise.  Most of the tuna are football size, but there are still some big fish in the mix, with some pushing 200lbs.

Dorado are hot right now. Most schools are found  5 -10 miles offshore with the average between 5- 20lbs. We have seen some big bulls this summer, and it will stay good through the fall for dorado. My clients on Friday got onto a school of dorado and we stayed on them and had  a blast!  They were catching one dorado after another.

Sailfish are still being caught and in the mix are blue marlin and striped marlin. The striped marlin bite will go into full swing as soon as the water temps cool down a bit. If you enjoy marlin fishing, then this is the trip for you as striped marlin are a blast to hook up with. Please contact us for availability as we have some days available this fall for striped marlin trips.

The inshore water is cleaning up from the rain we had last week and some nice amberjack and pargo are being caught. The marina is also cleaning up nicely.

Tight lines,

Jeff

Hi folks,

This last week the weather has been pretty kind to us and the fishing has been really good.  Not much has changed in terms of conditions, but the main thing is that the fishing is still red hot. Sardines are around, but it’s spread really thin and they are very small, but we are still getting into some great fish off the beaches and offshore, even with the bait fish not being present. Right now we have some roosters on the beach, as well as scattered dorado and marlin. If you look around you, will find them.

Luckily over the last few weeks, we have had all the football tuna you want to catch, but they are a long ride out. Average range from shore is around 25 and 50 miles out, with the average tuna around 12 pounds, but there are some twenty pounders in the mix. Once we find the schools we shut the boat down and cast right into the boil. The schools are still mainly feeding on the the red crabs as the main food source. If you have the arms for it, you’ll have a bent rod all day long.

This last Sunday, I went out and did some exploring on the beaches and found some good fish in preparation for my clients on Tuesday. Plus, Jeff Solis comes out on Wednesday and we are set to do some fishing for a couple of days. We will be focusing most of our efforts on the beaches, and even though the Roosters are showing spawning behavior, they are more than willing to aggressively chase down the fly.

Be sure to check out our catches on Facebook and Twitter over the week.

The fishing is going to stay hot all summer long, so come on down to East Cape Baja and get in on the action. We will post more photos and reports shortly. For booking details check out:
