The Dorado are still scattered throughout the area, most of these fish are the small schoolies 10-12 lbs with the occasional big bull or cow mixed in.
If you are looking to bring fish home Dorado should be on your daily target list. In most cases you can get your limit early and then spend the day fishing for your favorite seasonal species. Most days we have a couple of boats at the Bajo or Punta Norte trolling for Wahoo with success. When the currents are favorable, 1-2 fish per angler 3-4 fish per spearo is not uncommon. These speedsters have been large this year averaging 40-70 lbs.
Black and Blue Marlin are still in the area. Most of these guys are not the big dogs like we normally see but they fight as hard as any fish and put on an aerial display worth anybody’s time.
Still no consistent tuna bite. I’m starting to believe this may be the year the tuna just didn’t show up. Maybe they took a wrong turn or maybe they got wrapped up by the tuna seiners when we were all in lock down and nobody was around to see it. Either way a no show.
As the water temperature continues to cool the bottom fishing will improve, filling the coolers with snapper and grouper. Our Mag Bay trips are booking up, currently the Wahoo are on a strong bite mixed with 20-30 lb Yellow fin. We will be fishing these grounds thru the winter. This trip is a little more rustic then some might want but it’s far from camping and the fishing is nothing short of spectacular. Please let us know if you have any interest. We haven’t had any changes from the government regarding COVID restrictions so all is the as it was this summer.
