WEATHER: Really nice weather over the last week with a few partly cloudy days, but other than that it has been really nice. Highs in the low to mid 80,s and lows in the 60,s. I think we mite has had some sprinkles of rain a couple nights ago but nothing major. Perfect weather.


WATER: The water has been lingering in and around the 71 to 74 degree mark and has been there for quite some time. We did start to see that greenish water in some areas and it is never good for fishing when it shows up. Water is cooling north of us and we should start to see cooler water in our are soon as it is that time of year. This link which will show you water temperatures for the southern half of Baja.

BILLFISH: : : It’s so up and down its really hard to say how it will be this upcoming week, but we are hopeful as we have great weather. From the Light House to Ranch Migrino has been good for Marlin and we are using live bait and lure about 2 miles off the beach. What is good about this is we don’t have to run far to get into the Striped Marlin if they’re hitting. This week whatever we are catching whether it is Marlin, Wahoo or Dorado we are really working for them, well so what, we live and work in a great area and that’s fishing anyway.


DORADO: There has been a few nice fish up and around Ranch Migrino but Dorado fishing hasn’t been to hot this past week. I think the full moon has had a lot to do with the poor fishing.

SWORDFISH: Hasn’t heard of any caught this week.

WAHOO: Well, its been pretty slow over the last week for Wahoo. SO I really don’t have much to report about it but I do wish I did.


TUNA: : If you run 12 to 14 miles off shore you have a chance to run into a school of Tuna. The Tuna are hanging at the Doughnut area and are being landed using cedar plugs and king busters. Most are in the 8 to 14lbs range if you can find a school. Some days we go out to find the schools and they aren’t around, so it has been hit or miss.


INSHORE: Myself and my wife went out with Friends and a good time with lots of Sierras and a few Roosterfish. What I can tell you is the conditions were great and lots of action inshore.

We also saw many whales and that was a great time in itself.

So sometimes even if the fishing is poor on the outside you can always come on in closer to shore and get into some great action with Sierra, Roosters, Red Snappers and we think son the Yellowtail along with Amber Jack will be showing up. A few boats jigging iron around the Pedregal rocks and landing some Amber Jacks and I think the Yellowtail will start to get better in the next few days.

The Sierra fishing is getting better close to shore from Pump House to Margaita rocks and the Panags have been killing the Sierra in front of the Solmar to the Pump House using hootchies, striped bait and rapalas. There has been some Red Snappers caught on live bait in the rocks on the Pacific side.
