We have snapper, AmberJacks, grouper and the likes hanging on the seamounts but with this water temperature their time in range is coming to an end, it’s time to change gears. Our guest are now mostly targeting Dorado which are so plentiful that it would make no sense to pass on this incredible fighting and most desirable eating fish. The striped Marlin are abundant. We’ve had a few reports of Wahoo and We have reports of tuna 60 miles South of us.
Starting with the inshore fishing the Cubera, Mulato and Pargo Colorado are plentiful and consistent. If Rooster fish is on your bucket list you’re in luck. Normally they are rare caught in the summer but this year that’s not the case. Along the coastline around the island or on the buoys are chalk full of Dorado, striped Marlin and sails. We found slow trolling Bonito belly strips to be the best bet for all three species. Offshore is a bit of a mystery. All the conditions are perfect. There’s plenty of natural bait, flying fish, Bolitos and Chuhuil breezing everywhere.
The variety of fish is mind boggling. The rooster fish are still cruising up and down the beaches; off the rocky slides around the island, small to medium size Pargo and cabrilla are on the chew. In the deeper waters on the mounts it’s a mixed bag. Cubera snapper, Cabrilla, Almaco Jacks, Pargo Colorado and yellow. The sargasso paddies are still floating around, he sargasso paddies are still floating around.
