Fishing Is Red Hot in Baja
Baja Mexico Fly Fishing Report for East Cape, Cabo San Lucas, and Magdalena Bay for the week of May 9th.
Over the last week, the East Cape remains good for pompano in rincón and lots of skipjack with a few tuna mixed in. There are also some really big schools of nice jacks from Punta Colorado to la Salina. There is a ton of “micro” bait that they have been feeding on. Most of this has been taking place a little later in the day, and on most days, it’s been starting about noon and lasting until about three. If you see the birds you will find the fish about 1/2 mile out to about 2 miles. Throwing sardines to them showed some of the groups of fish wanting the bait but some didn’t. You could tell a few groups were more in the spawning mode but the ones that wanted to play were very aggressive.
Bait in the East Cape is decent with sardines available on most days but can be slim pickings if not there early. The bait up North continues to be plentiful and very nice.
We have seen a few roosters on the beach and from the boat, but the majority of the action remains up North out of La Ventana. We were up there a few days ago and lost two big fish at the lighthouse. The fish here are averaging 30 to 60 pounds. There are fish there but there are lots more fish to the south and around the corner in La Casita. The fish in La Casita is more abundant but smaller on average in the 15 to 25-pound class.
Over the next few days we are going to fish the mangroves for some grouper on the outside and we will be sure to report back our findings.
Until Next Week... Tight Lines,
