Summer Stability Nears
Weather and Bait
FINALLY ! it looks like we are turning the corner. For the first time in months the wind has started to settle down and is behaving like it’s supposed to.
This weekend the highs are looking mid 90’s as they should be. The positive effects of this weather should drive warmer currents up the gulf, creating favorable conditions for the Pelagic’s that we all have been waiting for; Bait again is still plentiful in the bay as well as on the seamounts, while sardines are for sale on the way out to the fishing grounds, just let your captain know and he will make the arrangements.
Fish are on the Move
We are now getting consistent reports of tuna following the porpoises. Although these schools are on the edge of our day trip range, they are moving north and closer to shore. We are still getting yellowtail and cabrilla, they just won’t leave. The YellowTail are a smaller version of the past but, the cabrilla are big and fat. The AmberJacks are still on the chew on the seamounts, although the spearos are having much better luck shooting them then the anglers with rod and reel. These AJ’s are real bruisers bring your big boy panties as the avg weight is 50-70lbs.
We had a couple of charters choice to fish the south end of Cerralvo this week with mixed results but they did find Dorado and Tuna.
As I said the conditions are changing and I think we are on the edge of our typical summer fishery. Fingers crossed.
Keep the faith
