Pargo

April 3rd Fishing Report

I saw boats anchored on the high spot of the seamount chumming sardines with yellowtail boiling all around them. Casting live baits or artificial swim baits into the boils was automatic bendo.
We also have Cabrilla and large Pargo mixed in. These fish are still pre spawn so I’m guessing we have a few more weeks of this before they move on to cooler waters.
Normally after the yellowtail move out we start getting into their larger cousins the brutal Pez Fuerte.

January 2022 Fishing Report

The majority of the fishing currently is with our spring species and patterns.
On the seamounts and rocky spots Yellowtail and Almaco Jacks, cousins to AmberJacks are being caught using live bait with either weights or downriggers. Both Cabrilla and Pargo Mulato are mixed in so it’s a nice variety. Once again we are finding Dorado in the bay. There was a few reports of Wahoo on the chew outside around Punta Norte and La Reina.

Autumn is here! Fishing Report

I really can’t say much more about the dorado. The key is purchase your bait and get after it right away. The first boats on the fishing grounds will limit out in minutes. 15-20 lb class fish is the norm with the occasional 30 lb bonus fish coming over the rail. The wahoo fishing hasn’t developed yet but the water is still a few degrees too warm. My guess by next month we will be in full swing for these speedsters. We are starting to catch some Sierra and roosters inshore. These are normally cool water species, not sure hats going on there. The Sierra are great eating grilled or smoked. Bottom fishing has been good when the currents aren’t raging for Pargo, cabrilla and trigger fish.
IMO, October is the best month for fishing and weather. The humidity starts to drop along with the morning air temperature. October is also the best month for and the largest variety of Pelagic’s.

Mid-September! Fishing Report

Usually the Dorado are in pairs but many times they’re in schools of 8-10 fish. Since we are now later in the season the fish have had time to put on a few pounds, so 15-25 pounds are common.
Inshore fishing off the points or rocky areas are still giving up Pargo and cabrilla as well as trigger fish and large pacific Bonito. All are great eating and a blast on light tackle. Regarding the Bill fish action it’s just plug and play off the seamounts, El Bajo or El Charro or the East side of Cerralvo Island. The Striped Marlin aren’t huge but scrappy. The bigger guys should be moving in soon. Especially now the tuna are working their way up.

Hello September! Fishing Report

Dorado are being found under the buoys which now have been outfitted with palm fronds or just scattered offshore chasing schools of ballyhoos. Striped Marlin and Sailfish are mixed and plentiful in the channel between punta Coyote and Cerralvo island, and all the way down to Punta Gordo. There are plenty of rooster fish off the beaches, if you’re looking for some exciting site casting or slow trolling live bait this is your chance. I have heard reports of better wahoo activity on the south end of Cerralvo. Inshore there are plenty of Cabrilla, multiple species of Pargo and triggerfish. These are all excellent eating and a blast on lighter tackle.

August is over, Fishing Report

Regarding fishing not much has changed from last week as far as species just lower numbers.A few Dorado a couple of billfish, all varieties of pargitos in the shallows. Not much else.
All of our beach and island activities are running on schedule, at least until the ports are closed or we decide it’s not safe or comfortable so there are other fun things to do.

Hot August

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.

July 18th Fishing Report

The Dorado are still running in the mid size range 15-25 lbs with the occasional bull pushing 40lbs. All species of snapper are available and eager to bite. There are some real trophy Cubera snapper hanging in the rocks on the seamounts. The Alamaco Jacks are still hanging around the seamounts with 50 pounders the norm. A few wahoo have been seen breezing around but not many being boated.

July 11th Fishing Report

We are currently catching Pargo, Cabrilla, Alamaco Jacks, yellowtail, Dorado, Striped Marlin and Tuna. The Striped Marlin are being caught everywhere and the Dorado scene is definitely on. Other interesting news is this week we have had a huge migration of sharks, mostly Silky’s and a few bulls move in on the seamounts.
