There have only been a few boats fishing which makes it difficult to get a good handle on the action. I'm not seeing many flags and the little I have heard is that it is still tough. I did speak with a commercial snapper fisherman who had some encouraging news. The fish dope was that aside from an excellent snapper bite while bottom fishing on high spots off Buena Vista he has seen schooling yellowtail breeze by his lights. I also heard Cassman report striped marlin are starting to migrate from Cabo San Lucas up the Sea of Cortez.
The other day from our deck I saw pelicans diving on bait. Also saw some incredible shots from the beach of whales breaching right in front of Playa del Sol. All the signs are right and the East Cape is ripe to have the bite go ballistic within the next few weeks. Last year yellowfin tuna showed in March and it wouldn't surprise me to see it happen again.
Our boats have been gone over from top to bottom and ready to go. We don't have a scheduled trip for a couple of weeks but I am going to slide them in the water next week and start shaking them down for the season.
We haven't been fishing so I don't have any current photos but here are a few from last March. Proof, the early bird catches the fish.
