So last week I mentioned that the fish were mostly congregated to the north, just out of reach of a normal days trip. This week they have migrated down well within reach and are starting to settle in to there spawning areas. Still some days are better then others but that’s fishing. This year I’ve also noticed the avg size of the yellowtail are larger then usual. I personally have never seen so many fish lost due to pulled hooks, shredded line and one guy just flat got spooled. I’m guessing a big grouper or AmberJack. That guy was me.
This weekend at El bajo which looked more like a boat show then a fishing spot was coughing up limits of yellowtail, cabrilla and Cubera snapper with some boats back by lunch time. Saturday probably 70% of the fish on the seamount were caught on jigs. Salas 6X in scrambled egg pattern or multi colored butterfly jigs. Go figure they would rather eat the iron then a fresh Mac.
Anyway the fishing is great the coolers are full and the tequila bottles are empty. That’s a good week.
This next week is forecasting wind again, ugh. The reason they call them forecast is they are seldom correct. Hopefully we will be able to squeeze a few days in before they close the port.
Inshore fishing around the beaches and coves off Espíritu Santos are starting to show signs of Rooster fish. Slow trolling Caballitos or mullet or site casting poppers are starting to be productive. Fishing is definitely picking up and the season is looking very promising.
That’s it, check out the pics.
Keep the faith
