East Cape - Threw an ear have no fear

It has taken a week for conditions to get back to the great bite we were experiencing prior to hurricane Newton.  I thought we were finally back on track when my cell phone rang.  My conversation…Continue

East Cape - I'll take the small ones

Late August and September we typically see little traffic.  It is kind of ironic because this time brings some of our best fishing of the season.  This year is no exception.  There are not many…Continue

East Cape - Nice twins

East Cape - Nice twins OMG! For the first time this season I put on a sweatshirt.  Yes, the chill of winter has finally hit the East Cape.  Until now sea temp has managed to stay above 80 degrees but we will watch it plummet now.  Normally we are in the…See More

East Cape - Threw an ear have no fear

It has taken a week for conditions to get back to the great bite we were experiencing prior to hurricane Newton.  I thought we were finally back on track when my cell phone rang.  My conversation went like this , (Captain Diego) "hey boss,  (translated to English) we are going to be late". (me) "que pasa"? (Diego) "We threw an ear on the starboard prop". (me) "okay, I'll be ready when you get here. Did you catch any fish"?  (Diego) "yeah, it was a pretty good bite, tuna, dorado and a jumbo…See More

East Cape - I'll take the small ones

Late August and September we typically see little traffic.  It is kind of ironic because this time brings some of our best fishing of the season.  This year is no exception.  There are not many people in town and the ones that are here are enjoying excellent fishing and having the time of their lives.At the beginning of the month water temp in the Sea of Cortez started to soar and was approaching 90 degrees.  Blue marlin and sailfish were providing action but yellowfin tuna and wahoo started to…See More

Shades of blue

Shades of blue Billfish have been the name of the game this week.  Boats targeting marlin have good action and  averaging 2 to 3 fish a day.  Most have been stripers but more blue marlin are in the count everyday.  Fishing yellowfin tuna has been a tough…See More

East Cape - I want one

The East Cape is heating up.  Our humidity is starting to rise and now daytime temperatures are starting to tip 90 degrees.  Evenings are still cooling a bit and very pleasant.Game fish have been fickle and hard to figure out.  Smaller yellowfin tuna have been consistent south of Frailes trolling hoochies, Yozuri's and cedar plugs.   The larger model yellowfin have been with porpoise schools offshore but it has been hard to get them to go.  It has been a risk versus reward thing.  The risk is…See More

East Cape - Over matched

We started this season with a sputter but East Cape fishing is finally off to the races.  It is time for all the cyber fishermen to push away from their computers and get down here.  It is happening!After a few days of wind last week we are back to calm seas and very comfortable weather.  Schools of porpoise have arrived from 20 to 40 miles offshore holding tuna.  There are a lot of small fish that some days are a bit finicky but there are a few cows mixed in as well.  We are seeing huge…See More

East Cape - Sea temp drops, bite stops

Our East Cape season was progressing nicely with picture perfect weather and the bite starting to turn on.   Wahoo and dorado were being caught in bigger numbers.  Mostly smaller grade tuna were also starting to show off shore.  There were a few larger fish in the mix.Living in a tropical environment and working on the ocean we always carefully monitor weather forecasting.  It has become a ritual for me.  So, early this week out of the blue the forecast indicates 20+ knot winds and small craft…See More

East Cape - Magic Jack

It is exciting to finally have something to talk about besides the gorgeous weather that has persisted for more than 2 months and tough fishing.Just when I was starting to think we were going to struggle all year the Sea of Cortez came alive. At the beginning of the week dorado, marlin and wahoo were bending rods. As the week progressed the action started to diminish.The moon was getting bright and many thought it was shutting off the bite. Then Magic Jack, aka "Mr. Lucky" or Jackurate as many…See More

East Cape - The spring crash of 2016

East Cape weather could not be more perfect.  For several weeks we have been enjoying warm sunny weather.  Very comfortable, not too hot, not too cold.  Sea temps have been 76-77 degrees and the water is clear and blue. Live bait has been abundant and the stage is set for a great fishing season.The bite, I have figured out, is like the stock market.  Some days it is up and others it is down.  When the market is down analysts and brokers advise to stay the course.  History tells us in the long…See More

East Cape - Life after tuna

It has been a windy winter and some time since I wrote my last report. We have had our heads down working hard getting boat maintenance finished in preparation of the upcoming season.  New turbo chargers, transmissions, after coolers, bait systems, electrical and building a new trailer are the only things that have been in our recent radar.Last week I thought we were turning the corner from winter having a few calm days and warmer temperatures.  Guess it was wishful thinking because for now the…See More
