Hi folks,

This past week the fishing has been a little up and down.  This is due to the fact that we had a few days of very strong wind from the South, South East for most of the week.  As of yesterday the winds have calmed down and the fishing was very good the last two days.

Inshore and along the beach we continue to see steady activity for Rooster fish and Jacks.  The Rooster fish have not been as plentiful as in weeks past but we have enough around to keep anglers interested.  We have good populations of Mullet in the area and we are finally seeing some sardina in the area.  Most of the sardina are still quite small and it will be another couple of weeks before they can be caught but it is wonderful to see them in the area.  We have also had a blast this week catching Lady fish off the beach as well as the boat.  We have them everywhere and some of them are quite big.  I got out my 6wt. rod the other night and had a blast.  Some people think they are just a so-so fish to catch but I find them to be a blast especially on a light rod.

Offshore we continue to see excellent action for Tuna.  Unfortunately, they have been using chunk squid and fishing them very deep making them very hard to catch using flies.  We do, however, have a good number of Marlin in the area giving the fly fishing angler a very good chance at catching a Bill fish on the fly.  I got into a few Dorado the other day on the boat with my guest and I heard of a decent school of Dorado being found today under a school of birds just in front of La Ribera.  The numbers of Dorado are getting better every day and we should start to see enough of them in the coming weeks to give us some consistent action for the anglers looking to fly fish for Doardo.

I will be on the beach as well as in the boat this coming week.  I will be sure to let everyone know how we do.  Be sure to stay tuned.

Until then…..Keep fishing!
