Week of February 2nd,
This past week we have seen mostly cloudy skies with some rain showers off and on during the days of Friday and Saturday last week. The highs have been in the high 60’s on the cooler days and in the mid to upper 70’s on the warmer days despite the light rain we had in Cabo. Overnight lows have been in the 50’s and the fog has been thick on some mornings on route to Cabo, but lifts as the sun comes up and clears up.
With mostly cloudy, breezy, and cool conditions for most of the week in the East Cape there was not many anglers on the water…We did have a couple spectacular days however with no wind and lots of sun. On those days the fishing was over all pretty good and got into some nice fish. We are still seeing good bait along the shore and this is drawing in some quality fishing right off the shore.
Sierra have been very active in the early mornings, plus some nice jacks and roosters in the mix after the suns up. There have also been some dorado patrolling the beaches giving anglers a shot at a fish they normally would not catch directly from the beach. I got a call the other day from a very good friend of mine who said he even had a yellow fin tuna come in and chased right into the beach, then bit right at his feet! You just never know what you will encounter along the beach which makes our fishery so diverse.
A little further off shore there have been some larger Sierra along with some white Bonita in the 5-10 pound class. The occasional dorado and a small number of marlin have been reported between Buenavista and the lighthouse.
I know a few boats that have been out jigging for yellowtail but have not had much success finding the yellowtail, however they have been catching a few nice snapper which are always fun.
I spent most of the week fishing out of Cabo San Lucas with guests and we had a big swell which made it hard to fish inshore. We did manage to catch a few nice Sierra along with a couple small roosters though. Each day we found big schools of jacks that were in the spawning mode and would sink out fairly fast after one or two casts.
The whales have arrived in Mag Bay and I took the family out for some whale watching which we all enjoyed. The fishing is still staying strong and I will have an update early this week on the conditions. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or trip information.
