Porpoise schools have been easy to find off shore but we have found tuna to not be as cooperative as last week. There is more than one way to skin a cat though or it might be better said to catch a tuna so we shifted gears. Drifting live baits on high spots off La Ribera, south of Punta Arena and Punta Pescadero, has been producing quality tuna along with amberjack, pompano and cubera snapper.
Blue marlin and sailfish are showing in bigger numbers. Two blues in excess of 400 lbs. each were reported along with a 62lb bull dorado. This is excellent news with the Dorado Shootout and Bisbee's East Cape Offshore just a few weeks away.
