Tuna

May 9th! Fishing Report

This week the yellowtail moved into the bay literally 10 minutes outside the marina. These fish were consistently some of the largest of the year averaging 25lbs with some brutes tipping the scales at 35lbs.
A few Dorado are being caught around the island near the sargasso paddies. This should continue to improve as the conditions continue to change to our summer pattern.
A few Almaco Jacks cousins to the AmberJack around the seamounts. This is the season for Pez Fuerte. So far they’ve been on the smaller size 20-30lbs but the 60/80 pounders won’t be far behind.
Cabrilla and snapper are hanging on the rocky high spots as they also are finishing the spawning season.

May is here! Fishing Report

We are still having killer days on the yellowtail, cabrilla and snapper but finding these schools is becoming more difficult. The yellowtail have moved up in the water column, chumming sardines then casting into the boil seems to be working best.
There has been more reports of the Tuna bite at the North end of Cerralvo island. It’s a total hero or zero dea

April 17th Fishing Report

There are plenty of yellowtail around the island and rocky points. They still seem to be moving around a lot so some days you find them right away and some days it’s like wack a mole.
The tuna that we’re feeding up around Punta Norte have seemed to vanish. That’s not uncommon for tuna this early in the season.

April 10th Fishing Report

The fishing in general is quite good. They seem to be moving around a lot more than normal. most of the normal yellowtail spots are close to each other so you just keep moving around until you find them. some paddies are starting to hold Dorado in the 20lb class. Bottom fishing has been especially good on the falling tide. Pin either a Mackerel or sardine with 4-6 oz of lead on any metered structure and you will find Cabrilla and Pargo in the 12-15 pound class eager to bite. Good news on the Tuna front. The north end of Cerralvo is giving up a few 150-200 lb class daily. It’s a hero or zero deal. But you’re patience will be rewarded if you’re willing to put in the time.

January 2022 Fishing Report

The majority of the fishing currently is with our spring species and patterns.
On the seamounts and rocky spots Yellowtail and Almaco Jacks, cousins to AmberJacks are being caught using live bait with either weights or downriggers. Both Cabrilla and Pargo Mulato are mixed in so it’s a nice variety. Once again we are finding Dorado in the bay. There was a few reports of Wahoo on the chew outside around Punta Norte and La Reina.

It’s almost Christmas! Fishing Report

With only two weeks to Christmas Tuna and Wahoo are what’s happening.
The Wahoo are logs this year avg 50-60 lbs. The Tuna are the real gift. As I said last week 1-2 fish per day seems to be what the tuna gods are willing to give up, but these fish are huge.
As the water continues to cool the Pargo and Cabrilla action is picking up off the rocky points and seamounts.
Inshore fishing has been steady with Sierra, assorted jacks and the Late season Dorado, which May be here all year the way things are looking.

December is here! Fishing Report

Fishing generally speaking is good but very inconsistent, both on species and count.
To say there is a big variety is a bit mis leading, although there is a lot of different species out there. The day to day catches are just pretty random.
One day you may find a school of dorado or tangle with a 50lb wahoo. Some of the local rocky drop offs are holding yellowtail or Cabrilla.

Mid-November Fishing Report!

A nice grade of Dorado were moving around from buoy to bouy in the punta Coyote area. Marlin are still holding around El Charro. Tuna are a no show all the way up and down the Baja. Regarding the wahoo, We are now well into the season.
Inshore smaller cabrilla and Pargitos, Palmettos, are hitting both live bait and artificial lures.

November 7th Fishing Report!

The best part of fall fishing is the variety, and that’s what we’ve got.
We still have all species of Marlin hanging around. The Dorado though less common then say a couple of weeks ago are still scattered in the bay all the way out to Cerralvo island. We have seen an increase in Wahoo activity, though it’s not what it should be. Inshore and around the seamounts we have Cabrilla, Cubera snapper, yellowtail, Jacks, Bonito, and don’t ole triggerfish.
