In shore yellowtail are in the neighborhood but finding live bait has been problematic.Fact or fiction Fluorocarbon has little or no stretch? At a Super Bowl party I posed this question. (Heck, the game wasn't worth watching and we needed something to talk about.) The consensus was fact. I also asked…See More

EAST CAPE BLUES

EAST CAPE BLUES It was another spotty week of fishing on the East Cape.  The weather has been about as nice as it can get.  The water is 82 to 84 degrees and a beautiful purple blue.  There is loads of flying fish, and birds everywhere.  I just keep waiting…See More

thumping em

Thumping em The last few weeks yellowfin tuna have been inconsistent, biting one day and not the next.  This week was a different story.  A huge volume of tuna has shown on East Cape waters and are feeding on red crabs.  These fish are not on porpoise and we are…See More

I WON'T SUGAR COAT IT

I WON'T SUGAR COAT IT East Cape conditions have been less than desirable.  The water has been a horrible off color with strong currents and unstable temperatures.   Live bait has also been hard to come by.  Working hard we have still been able to scratch…See More

SOME DANDYS

SOME DANDYS! This week the main East Cape action moved to the buoys about 15 miles off of Punta Pescadro where quality sized dorado have taken center stage.  In recent years I can't remember when boats have been able to consistently catch this grade of fish.  Lots…See More

MAKING THE BEST BETTER

EAST CAPE=MAKING THE BEST BETTERMaking the best better Lots to talk about this week and too many great photos to choose from.The end of last week Yellowfin tuna made their first showing. It looked like the East Cape was off to the races when a few different schools of dolphin were located all holding tuna. Then it happened. The water in the Sea of Cortez turned over to an ugly green color. With that, for now, the tuna have vanished.The striped marlin bite has been very consistent and the off…See More

A LITTLE BLOW MAKES EM GO!

A LITTLE BLOW MAKES EM GO Fish has been awesome the last couple of weeks with marlin, dorado and in shore rooster fish providing quite a show.  Catching has been a trick though.  On calm days the fish just don't want to go.  When a little breeze comes…See More

SEA OF CORTEZ-EAST CAPE, TURTLE SEX

TURTLE SEX East Cape weather has been about as nice as it gets with calm seas and sunny skies.Marlin fishing has been tough. Finding and sighting fish has been easy but getting them to bite has been frustrating. Boats are only getting one marlin out of ten to take the bait. Quality dorado has taken up some of the slack though. Fish as large as 50 pounds are in the mix every day.In shore rooster fish and pompano are on the feed. Finding sardines for bait has been the key to success and not easy…See More

SEA OF CORTEZ-EAST CAPE, LOOP DE LOO

Fishing has been a real roller coaster.  Early in the week striped marlin were in a feeding frenzy and giving anglers lots of action.  Then the marlin slowed but big dorado showed.  Just as the bite was getting into high gear a low pressure system hit and it shut off.  The weather brought strong winds and we had a couple of pretty ugly days.  Now the wind is gone and a huge volume of marlin have showed just a few miles off Punta Colorada.  It has been easy to spot fish but they are finicky…See More

SEA OF CORTEZ-MARLIN BITE, LINES GO TIGHT

SEA OF CORTEZ-EAST CAPE, WHAT SIGN ARE YOU?

WHAT SIGN ARE YOU?In shore pompano, sierra mackerel, jacks and an occasional roosterfish are providing anglers loads of action.In Palmas Bay from 5 to 10 miles off shore a large volume of striped marlin have shown and are jumping, tailing and feeding.  To coin a description from our friend Gary Graham fishing the marlin bite right now is like "playing Whack a Mole".  By the time we get to the feeders they…See More

SEA OF CORTEZ-EAST CAPE, COVER OF THE ROLLING STONE

Cover of the Rolling Stone not!After a winter of continuous boat maintenance this week we launched Jen Wren III for the season. Yesterday was our shake down trip and it appears all of our hard work has paid off.Eight to ten miles off of the lighthouse schools of bait are starting to puddle up in the blueish 70 degree water. This is a sure sign of good things to come. We sighted jumping marlin,…See More

RUINED IN GUATEMALA

I just got back to the East Cape after spending a week in Guatemala. Information on our current fishing conditions is hard to come by. Yesterday no resort cruisers fished. This morning only 2 departed to try their luck. Inshore the water appears to be very clear and is loaded with bait. At dusk and dawn hoards of pelicans are gorging themselves on the bait. Even the in shore tin boaters are few and far between right now. I did hear a report that beach fishermen a little south of us are hooking…See More
