As far as fishing goes, for August we are not seeing the variety of Pelagic’s that are normally here. This is not to say fishing is bad, it’s actually pretty darn good we’re just not seeing all the species that should be here by now. That being said the waters are stacked with 20-40lb Dorado. As soon as you clear the bay it really doesn’t matter what direction you go, these aquatic acrobats are everywhere.
Further off shore around the seamounts schools of Striped Marlin are thick and on the chew. 3-5 fish per boat is not uncommon. Of course most of these fish are released so no harm there. Trolling small and medium size lures in darker colors are getting hammered. We had some clients actually pulling lure away from Marlin in pursuit of their lures.
Bottom fishing on the seamounts for giant Cubera snapper is a great way to end your day as well as fill your cooler. Fish to 50lbs are coming in almost daily. This past week we found a few large schools of spinner porpoise further off shore. Unfortunately the tuna were no where to be found. Not much on the wahoo front, although some Spearos said they did locate small pods of speedsters off the north and south ends of Cerralvo island.
This is also the beginning of the season for the big boys, both Black and Blue Marlin start their migration up the sea of Cortez. We should hear more news soon With the East cape Bisbee just around the corner.
This is the time of year when the action can change quickly so stay tuned. We will keep you informed.
Keep the faith
