The weather has been fantastic this week in Baja and the fishing has stayed pretty solid. It’s September, so, yes, it’s hot. But when the fishing is this consistent, it’s worth it. I did get wind from some captains that there are some good schools of bait fish in the area, and the best part of this is that there are hungry rooster fish in hot pursuit on sardina and mullet.
As for tuna, they are still around and are feeding heavily on red crabs as their bait of choice. Most tuna are football size, but there are some larger tuna in the mix, with some tuna in the 35-40 pound range.
This summer has been off the hook for us in terms of tuna, dorado and billfish. The billfish have been eager to chase a fly and the sailfish numbers have been consistent all summer long. We are set to have a great fall based on the quality of the fishing we have experienced this summer and we are really looking forward to it.
As for Magdalena Bay, we are set to start fishing it towards the end of October, and we are currently taking bookings for the fall and winter. We are taking a trip in a few weeks to look for snook in the mangroves. That’s right folks, you don’t have to go to Florida to find great snook fishing. Mag Bay has a fantastic snook fishery. Wahoo are starting to show up as well and there are many other species to fish for in a single day to round out a perfect day on the water. Contact us for available dates.
