Hi All,

Well, to say the least… the fishing has been very tough recently. Over the weekend we had some rain and wind move in from hurricane Maria, which was offshore from us. While our general area was not affected directly by the hurricane, it did cause some unfavorable conditions which has made fishing hard. In addition to the wind and rain, there’s also been a lack of sardina recently. For the boats that did get some sardine, there were some bonito, small tuna and dorado around. We are looking at conditions improving shortly and when that happens we will be back it, targeting the best areas of the beach, inshore and offshore.

The photos in the post are from some of our recent trips before the weather turned:

On the plus side… we have had some time to focus on exploring a few new spots and we are working on some new packages for the fall/winter season.  As a guide there is nothing better than seeing happy clients and we look forward to fishing with you soon. The weather should be back to normal soon enough, and as soon as the rough weather passes, we will hit the water and report back what we find.

Stay tuned and tight lines.

Hi All

At long last there are some good schools of sardina around! The schools are sporadic and the overall size is on the small size, but the key is to have them. Just having sardina with you makes all the difference . We got into some amazing bonito, skipjack and small roosters using the sardina to keep the action going and we had happy clients.

marlin.

Overall, the top bite is the white bonito action. These guys are beautiful and very exciting on the fly. Over the last week we found plenty of fish and had a lot of fun with these guys last week. Off the light house, we are seeing schooling dorado in the 10-15 lbs range and the marlin bite has slowed down a bit, but the majority of the action we are seeing is from sail fish when looking for marlin. If you are looking for big tuna you will have to run out roughly 50 miles. Schools of tuna are being found with porpoise and there are reports of  tuna over 50lbs in the schools.

rooster.

So, with the ride being 50 miles out , we have decide to stay  local and double down on the fishing locally since it’s been that good. The beach is tough right now… We have had a lot of cloud cover recently which makes it even harder to sigh fish. The roosters that are here however are big, but you have to put in a lot of time. We headed north over the weekend and we got one nice 60 lb rooster though.  August and September packages will be out shortly and if you have questions, please don’t hesitate to call.

Tight lines,

Jeff

Hi All,

This last week I had the pleasure of fishing with the group trip hosted by Fishermen’s Spot Fly Shop out of Los Angeles. Jeff Solis came down and helped with the group and we had a blast. The fishing was tough overall due to warm water and overcast conditions.

We did manage some nice fish and we caught sails, African pompano, roosters, bonito and dorado. The beach fishing has been tough overall, but if you put in time you will have shots at cruising roosters. The Reel Baja is building a few packages together for late summer and we will send them out as soon as soon as we have everything finalized.  Please feel free to call with questions.

Tight lines,

Jeff

Storms Have Passed and The Action is Heating Up!

Hi All,

Last week we had several storms roll through and fishing the beaches was tough due to low light from overcast conditions. I did have clients who opted to fish the beach and we had several shots and turned several big roosters. We hooked up on a few but none were landed. The off shore is producing great marlin and sailfish action. Over the weekend we had great success with clients landing several marlin and sailfish. There is still no sign of sardina but there is mullet around to keep things interesting.

On the offshore bite we have found several pods of porpoise and with them are tuna. In the mix are tuna of 90lbs and we have hooked up with several on them. This week I will have the Fisherman’s Spot fly shop with me on their hosted trip. We will focus on the beach and the inshore and I will have a new update mid week. Also, we have uploaded a new video that highlights some of the dorado action we have here in Baja and I have included the link.

Please feel free to call for trip details or questions.

Tight lines,

Jeff

Hi All,

Things are picking up and we have had some great fishing. Overall the top bite has stayed the marlin bite, but things are heating up on the beaches as well. My clients have decided to focus on the beach this week. We are seeing spawning activity but most of the fish are really big.

Marlin June

I’ve seen roosters up 70 pounds cruising the beaches… However, getting the fish to commit has been and stayed a challenge, but it’s a ton of fun turning fish.

Roosterfish

The spawn should be over within the beach and we will see more roosters eating instead of just chasing down the fly. There has been a lot of mullet on the inshore, but there are no sardine that have shown up yet.

 

On the offshore bite there are some nice tuna mixed in with porpoise and are roughly 5 miles out. While looking for porpoise we have found sailfish and a few blue marlin as well. The season is well under way and we are excited to get our clients into some incredible fishing. If anyone has any questions please feel free to call for information.

Tight lines,

Jeff
