We did experience a small earthquake 4.1 on Thursday but no damage was reported thank goodness. Just Another example of Mother Nature letting us know who’s in charge.
The first half of the week was pretty quiet, not many people out fishing, but by mid week we had full loads and decent fishing. The main attraction was once again the Dorado. Fish in the mid range from 10-20 pounds are being caught on sardines and small lures. The biggest difference this week from last is the fish have moved back into the bay. They are literally in front of the marina hanging around the oil tankers anchored thru out the bay. Oddly enough we are traveling further to buy bait then we are to catch fish.
A couple of spearo guided trips did well on the seamounts with Cubera snapper AmberJacks and a few wahoo to fill their coolers. One of our guest shot a real nice 40lb dorado at la Reina. I had a chance to fish this week for a change chasing the ever elusive tuna. I had to travel much further then our daily charters go, ended up being a two day sleep on the deck gig but found a few schools of porpoises holding footballs size tuna. Super happy to find them but the big guys just haven’t come up yet. All conditions are positive with nice clear blue water, temperature range from 84-89 degrees.
