Week of  January 12th.

The fishing in Cabo is really good at the moment. Our clients are happy and along the shore there are A LOT of big jacks! Schools of 50-150 fish are cruising the beaches displaying spawning rituals. However, if you can find the right group they willing to eat a fly. We threw to maybe 30 different schools the other day and most of them didn’t respond, but about 5 schools did!

January Snapper

It was really exciting and these are aggressive fish and BIG. Size range is in the 20 – 40 pound range. A little closer to shore there are also some scattered smaller jacks and roosters in the 5-10 pound range. We also found the first big schools of Sierra this week in Cabo.

Sierra were on the small to medium size and very willing to bite and we caught them both deep, plus on top water flies as well. Found a few snapper this week as well although last week we had plenty of snapper around, but as few as we saw they are really fun to hook up with on the fly. Off shore in Cabo there is a few scattered dorado and plenty of marlin. The marlin in front of the light house are staying deep, but If you want to fly fish for them you need to run out to the Golden Gate Bank for some action.

Here on the East Cape the weather was beautiful with no wind and calm conditions and we have very good schools of sardines along the shore. On the nice days there are some roosters and Sierra pushing the bait and feeding in the mornings. The wind is starting to come back up today and it is forecast to blow for the next few days… So, if you are in the East Cape I suggest you get up early and try and get a little fishing in before the winds kick up around 9 or 10 am.

If anyone has any questions regarding trips don’t hesitate to call.

Tight lines,

Jeff.

Hi All,

Fished Cabo all this week and it’s going very well. Overall, the weather has been great and we only had a few cold mornings. The sardina have finally shown up and this is one of the better years we are seeing this amount of sardina around! This of course is helping out the fishing and we are not complaining.

January rooster

I’ve had my clients out on the boat all week and we have found tons of small roosters and jacks. The snapper bite has been fantastic and we broke off several this week in Cabo while trying to get them to the boat. There are also some scattered dorado around and if you look for them you will find some quality fish. Mag Bay has not seen much activity and your best bet will be in the mangroves.

January Jack

East Cape: The East Cape has seen some wind and there are some days that we can get out on the water, but overall our focus has been in Cabo out of the wind.

January Snapper

On the calmer days there are some boats heading out and they are catching a few nice size dorado. The beach at first light is seeing sierra but as soon as the suns up it’s pretty much done. If anyone has any questions please feel free to call for trip updates and availability.

Tight lines,

Jeff

Winter Fishing is Kicking Off

Week of December 22nd.

Hello!

This last week I spent several days in Cabo fishing with clients and we had a blast. The bite is doing really well and it’s wide open on small roosters, jacks and ladyfish. There are also some scattered marlin and dorado around as well.

Over in Mag Bay there is reports of some marlin around but we have focused most of our fishing time in Cabo because the fishing has been that good. Water temps will start to drop over the next few weeks in Mag Bay which will improve the marlin bite. Our first trip of the new year will be in Mag Bay and I will have an update as soon as we are back.

The East Cape has had some wind recently but we had a small break in the weather last week and we had several nice days with little wind. On the beach we are finding jacks and the odd roosterfish and some great sierra at first light. This week I’m in the states and spending Christmas with the family and I will be back fishing clients the first week of January.

The Reel Baja would like to wish everyone a very merry and safe Christmas and we look forward to fishing with you soon.

Tight Lines,

Jeff

Hi All,

Fishing has been great down here in Baja! Our most recent trip to Cabo was amazing and my clients had a blast. I decided to take my clients to Cabo as Mag Bay had not been seeing any marlin and we new the tuna bite was picking up in Cabo. In Cabo we caught all the dorado we wanted, plus some really nice tuna!

Tuna Nov

 

The biggest tuna of the trip was a 50 pounder. Marlin action was great as well as we raised several and landed two nice marlin on the fly. In the East Cape there are some scattered dorado and some nice Sierra at first light off the beach.

Dorado ec1

I will be shifty mostly to Mag Bay this winter as the marlin bite is picking up. We do still have a few places left for our marlin package in Mag Bay and please feel free to call if there are any questions. Happy thanksgiving everyone and we look forward to fishing with you soon.

Tight lines,

Jeff

Hi All,
This last week the fishing has continued to stay very consistent and productive. Went out a few days and found some great dorado, tuna and marlin from the boat. The beach is also staying solid with sierra in the morning and some great ladyfish and mid sized roosters. The water temps are continuing to drop and with it the marlin bite will go into full swing. The fall is the main season for some of our best fly fishing for bill fish.  We currently also have a lot of sail fish and striped marlin in the area and they are willing to take the fly. Our best action for marlin will be in later October and November.

The Reel Baja will be running our ” Fly Fishing for Marlin 101? schools over in Magdalena Bay starting the first week of November. We will then run the package through the second week of December. The Reel Baja does still have a few openings for this awesome experience so please call or email for information.  Currently we are offering a “live aboard” package based on double occupancy of $3,200.00 per person for a three and a half day trip.

This trip is like no other and you will truly experience some incredible fishing. We are staying out on the boat and that allows us to stay on the fish!  This means you are able to fish from sun up to sun down if you wish.  We have even fished in the middle of the night in the past as well.  You should see the dorado congregate under the boat at night as they are attracted to all the bait and lights from the boat.  Please remember this price includes all flies, rods, reels, meals, and drinks.  If you have ever wanted to catch a marlin on the fly, then this is your trip. This fall is shaping up to be one of the best we have seen in the past couple years for marlin.  Again, the trip is based on marlin, but we will be targeting plenty of other species as well, like dorado, wahoo, and tuna.
