Weather & Bait
There’s no doubt summer is on its way. Generally we have cool mornings with nice temperate afternoons in spring. Not the case this week it was more like summer with warm mornings and hot afternoons crossing the 100 degree mark with a slight increase in humidity.
Fortunately when you’re on the water with a light offshore breeze in your face it’s not so bad. The water is improving daily. We are 9 degrees warmer this week over last, that’s a lot in the fish world.
Also the visibility, is 10x better then the week before. The reason I’m mentioning this, if this trend continues it will be the perfect conditions for the Pelagic’s to come our our way. This is what we wait all season for.
We noticed large shoals of bait fish migrating from south to north, almost a continuous stream of them. Mackerel, Bolitos and chihuil should start settling in on the high spots setting the stage for our summer fishing. Sardines are plentiful and sold around Tecolote, these are some of the biggest sardines I’ve seen all year. Super nice. Also we have calimar for sale at the office. Just ask your captain if your interested. I would say this week was just short of incredible, for May it was outstanding.
