Hi folks,

This last week the weather has been pretty kind to us and the fishing has been really good.  Not much has changed in terms of conditions, but the main thing is that the fishing is still red hot. Sardines are around, but it’s spread really thin and they are very small, but we are still getting into some great fish off the beaches and offshore, even with the bait fish not being present. Right now we have some roosters on the beach, as well as scattered dorado and marlin. If you look around you, will find them.

Luckily over the last few weeks, we have had all the football tuna you want to catch, but they are a long ride out. Average range from shore is around 25 and 50 miles out, with the average tuna around 12 pounds, but there are some twenty pounders in the mix. Once we find the schools we shut the boat down and cast right into the boil. The schools are still mainly feeding on the the red crabs as the main food source. If you have the arms for it, you’ll have a bent rod all day long.

This last Sunday, I went out and did some exploring on the beaches and found some good fish in preparation for my clients on Tuesday. Plus, Jeff Solis comes out on Wednesday and we are set to do some fishing for a couple of days. We will be focusing most of our efforts on the beaches, and even though the Roosters are showing spawning behavior, they are more than willing to aggressively chase down the fly.

Be sure to check out our catches on Facebook and Twitter over the week.

The fishing is going to stay hot all summer long, so come on down to East Cape Baja and get in on the action. We will post more photos and reports shortly. For booking details check out:
