Weather & Bait

We’ve seen the passing of hurricane “Juliette” steering off towards the northwest. We definitely felt the humidity and the heat that comes in September, the hottest month of the year. Thankfully hot also translated to good fishing, with increasing Mahi bite and Size. The water has cleared up in a matter of days, giving off their distinctive hues of turquoise and deep blue. It’s a good idea to head out early and beat the morning heat.

Large schools of sardine have been spotted at Los Islotes by Espíritu Santo Island. Typically just a snorkeling spot for our non-fishing adventure tours. This means there’re nutrients in the water, proliferating life and of course the predators that come after them. Although the bait has been moving all over the place, one of our trips this week caught so much bait they filled the live-well and had to use one of the fish holds to keep the larger sized bait.

Fish Talk

Mahi Mahi has been the main catch this week with the fish ranging around 10-20lbs. Several medium sized Pargos and Cabrillas have made for tasty dinners at Azul Marino restaurant. Tuna bite was a little scarce this week, seems like an adjustment to leader strength and hook size could be the trick to land the bigger sized yellowfin. Trolling for Marlin has been the highlight of this week, as we managed to land a decent sized blue marlin that is now being vacuum packed and frozen for transport back home.

Wahoo has also been a highlight this week, making more of a showing around Cerralvo island, where they seem to have been lingering for the last few days.

With more than a few fishing charters lined up for the next two weeks, including a multi day trip on board a 64′ Hatteras, we’re hoping to roam other areas and fishing spots, getting some more insight as to what’s biting, where and how. All in all, the action seems to be picking up from here on all fronts, weather it’s just a fishing fun day trip or a die hard fishing extravaganza, we’re glad to be putting our friends on good fish and great times.

What's Next

Whale shark season is coming up next month in October, and we’re almost ready with a new website, a completely re-designed online booking experience and of course, a fleet that’s ready for all kinds of adventures for family, friends and fishing enthusiasts.

Until next week,
Keep the faith
