Hi Everyone,

Well, you can definitely tell that there is a seasonal change in the air.  Cool mornings and nights are here, but the days are still beautiful and warm and the fishing is great.

With the windy season here in East Cape, there are very few roosterfish to be found on the beaches. However, we did get a shot at a nice rooster on the beach recently, which we ended up landing. It was a nice way to close the beach season before we set off for San Jose and Magdalena Bay.

Today we fished San Jose and had an amazing day out with non-stop action on tuna and dorado, and we also picked up a few wahoo. The tuna are in the 8-20lb range and the dorado 15-25 lbs. Right now, San Jose is fishing great and we are looking forward to a productive winter if it keeps up the way it’s going.  If you are thinking of taking a fly fishing trip this winter and if you want the opportunity to target multiple species each day on a fly rod, then give us a call and we will be happy to assist you.

Magdalena Bay: The bay has been fishing well with striped marlin, dorado and wahoo,  and we have also found some great areas that will hold big dorado all winter long. With the water temperature cooling in Mag Bay, the striped marlin bite will go into full swing and keep the action going.

Here’s a happy client from this week with a nice marlin:

If you want to catch marlin this winter, plus dorado, tuna and wahoo, come on down and we will be happy to put you on fish.
