East Cape - Shark attack

East Cape weather has been fantastic.  Tomorrow will be the first day of July but it feels like late May.  Yes, the sun is intense but we are not experiencing the stifling humidity that normally comes with it.

The Sea of Cortez has been like a pancake day after day with hardly a ripple on the blue 81 to 85 degree water.  Fish are almost jumping in the boat pleasing anglers.

Yellowfin tuna have been the main event.  Some days we have to work harder than others but we have been coming home with limits most of the time.  A very good striped marlin bite and a few roosterfish have also been in the mix.

Porpoise schools are holding the tuna and being found in every direction from 20 to forty miles offshore and beyond.  Chunk squid has been the hot bait but Halco lures, cedar plugs and hoochies have also been working.  Stripers found on the tuna grounds have been very aggressive and jumping on live baits and ballyhoo.  We have been finding the roosterfish away from the shoreline in 40 to 80 feet of water.

Happy anglers
