Sierras Starting to Show Up!

WEATHER: Well, we are finally getting some cooler nights and normal temperatures here in Cuba as over the last couple years, it has been warmer than normal and now it seems we are getting back to our normal weather patterns here in the richest fishing grounds in the world. Highs are in their mid to low 80,s and lows are in the ladder 50,s to low 60,s making it great sleeping weather at night. You might need to bring a sweater along for early mornings and evenings just to be on the safe side.


WATER: Wow cold weather has moved into the area and I am sure this will affect our fishing grounds over the next week or so. If you view the Tempbreak map you will see most of our area is 68 to 71 degree water temperatures, and that is a big difference even compared to 2 weeks ago when it was pushing 80. It shouldn’t effect Striped Marlin fishing and will definitely draw Yellowtail and more Sierras to the area. This link which will show you water temperatures for the southern half of Baja. 

BILLFISH: Well here is whats up the fishing has been all over the map this week it seems as if we get one really good day and then the next day real slow. The Marlin fishing has been pretty good off the Light House and as far north as Rancho Migrino and most being caught using live bait. It has honestly been a hit and miss for Marlin this past week as I think the colder water temperature is really effecting the fishing now and not just Marlin. It’s that time of year what can I say?


DORADO: We had 4 out of 7 days that were really good for Dorado. It wasn’t like last week when they were off the hook, but 4 out of 7 days scouring Dorado ain’t too bad. You won’t get those odds anywhere else in the world!!! We had good luck up at the Golden Gate this week using live bait and lures. I think if you book a boat this week you will have a more than average chance to catch a few Dorado!!!

WAHOO: There has been good numbers of Wahoo on rapalas and all caught up in and around the Golden Gate area. That’s good news as this will make for some great grilling!!!

TUNA: The Tuna are scattered out all over the place. I have heard of some pretty good scores, like a boat yesterday went out and found a school of Porpoise and ran into the Tuna about 6 miles out. King busters landed 6 fish all about 20lbs. The action was off the Light House.


INSHORE: Sierras are starting to show and with the colder water temperatures we expect a great bite soon.The Panga fishing has been doing really good and they’re doing really good on Sierras inshore using hootchies from the Solmar beach to the Light House and also some nice Red Snappers being caught on live bait near the beach off of Pedregal rocks. The Roosters are still here and there has been some taken in the surf this past week. Some small Dorado landed less than a mile off the beach on the Pacific side.
