Hi Folks,

    It is late in the season here in the East Cape and fishing remains steady.  We have seen an increase in the winds from the North making it difficult to fish on some days.  On the days when we have had calm seas and are able to fish we continue to see good action.  The main action has been for Tuna out in front of La Ribera.  Most of the Tuna have been in the twelve to twenty pound class with some bigger fish up to sixty pounds mixed in.  We have had some good fishing for Marlin and Dorado not only in the same area as the Tuna but through out the bay.  We continue to see Dorado and Marlin from the light house to Punta Pescadero.  We are not seeing huge numbers of Dorado or Marlin but we are seeing enough of them to keep things interesting.

    Closer to shore we have had very good fishing in the early morning hours for Sierra.  They have been in large schools almost anywhere you look for them.  We also have a few smaller Rooster fish and Jack Crevelle mixed in with the Sierra.  Sierra are most active in the early morning hours so I suggest getting out early. 

    I am currently in New Orleans and will be fishing for Red fish over the next four days.  On Monday I will head back to Mexico and straight to Magdelena Bay to meet my next group of anglers.  Magdelena Bay has been fishing very well.  Last week I was with Chris and Mike Watts out of Scottsdale Arizona and we had a great trip. We found great action for Marlin as well as some Dorado and Tuna.  The fishing in Magdelena Bay is heating up and should be very good for my next guests that arrive next Tuesday.  I will be sure to let everyone know how my trip here in New Orleans goes as well as how we do in Magdelena Bay next week. 

Until then…..keep fishing!
