Hi Everyone,

We are now in Magdalena Bay for the winter season – and what a week it has been!

This last week we fished structure roughly 100 miles out to sea for dorado and tuna. We had great weather and caught so many tuna and dorado that we lost count at times… If you have the arms for it, you’re likely to have a personal best day on the water with the amount of dorado and tuna we are finding. I will have a video ready shortly with some underwater footage of dorado actually attacking the camera from this last trip out.

We lost one day of offshore fishing due to wind so we fished the mangroves and had a blast. The top bite in the mangroves is halibut, but we did well on grouper and bass as well.

Marlin: The marlin bite is good and we raised a fair amount of marlin and landed several.  In the next few weeks the bite will only get better as more marlin migrate from the north for the winter.

This upcoming week, my clients are a husband and wife team looking to hook and land their 500th marlin. They are just short of achieving this goal and I’m excited to have the camera ready to snap a shot when they land number 500! Mag Bay is the place to be for marlin right now, so it’s the perfect place for my clients to be this week.

The weather is looking good and we are focusing on marlin exclusively this week with my clients. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and we will update with photos and videos shortly.

Tight lines,
