Luckily, the storm that was brewing last weekend has not affected our area much at all. Although it did rain for a few days, most of the storm broke up over the mountains.
Recently the sardina have shown up and we have had plenty of chum to get the dorado, bonito and tuna all fired up. The bonito are all football-sized and some of the dorado have been pushing over 30 lbs.
The marlin bite has been pretty good on the East Cape, but we will be focusing on Mag Bay for our upcoming winter marlin season. We had an incredible marlin season in Mag Bay last season, and this season should be equally as good.
The beaches have been quiet lately. I did take an ATV ride the other day scouting for some late holding roosters, but, I did not see any… Historically, we have continued to catch roosters into the first part of October, however, some wind has started to blow in from the north making the beaches difficult to fish.
I’ll be down in Mag Bay over the weekend scouting the area and I will post my findings. With the sardina around, the season will get rolling shortly and it will hopefully be an incredible fishing season in Mag Bay.
