If Billfish are on your list, the bite has been pretty steady. Both Striped Marlin and Sailfish are packing on the pounds feeding on everything from sardines to ballyhoos. Slow trolling live baits in the open waters offshore with 50lb fluorocarbon leader with 2/0-4/0 circle hooks are enough to land the fish and still make a easy release.
Overall, fishing is good. It’s just not as consistent as we normally have in August. I personally would recommend fishing early in the day for whatever your target species is, finishing the day off the rocky points for Cabrilla and Pargitos if you want to bring home some great eating fish.
Yes, once again another week without Tuna. The conditions are so perfect, this is really frustrating. A more consistent bite has started to form south of us, so hopefully it’s just timing. Tuna in the 20-50lb range have made it up as far as the light house in east cape but, that’s where it ends. A few Wahoo are on the chew on the south end of Cerralvo island. This bite doesn’t usually get going until October so anything between now and then is a bonus.
