If Billfish are on your list, the bite has been pretty steady. Both Striped Marlin and Sailfish are packing on the pounds feeding on everything from sardines to ballyhoos.
Overall, fishing is good. It’s just not as consistent as we normally have in 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.
