Hi All

Quick update on the situation after the recent storm, Hurricane Odile that passed through:
Here in East Cape, cell service has returned as of this afternoon (Sept 22) for most of the area. We are still waiting on power, but I have seen quite a few electric company trucks around our area today working on the lines and I also saw a helicopter checking all the major power lines in our area, so work is being done quickly.
Sept Tuna
Other than not having any power, things are pretty much back to normal. As far as gas, it’s not a problem at all. Both gas stations are up and running, so we have plenty of fuel for the boats. All the hotels in our area are open, including Rancho Leonero, Hotel Buenavista Beach Resort and Palmas de Cortez.  I took a drive over to Rancho Leonero today and the hotel looks great!! Most of the hotel guests are currently accessing our area through La Paz as the airport in San Jose is still closed.
Sept Dorado
The Southern peninsula that took the brunt of the hurricane, including San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas – is also rebounding fast from the storm. Yes, some places may take a little longer than others to regain fully from the storm, but over all, the community, national and international support has been incredible. Travelers may have seen some bad press and images about the area after the storm, but those photos and reports are not what is truly happening now. What is happening is a rebuilding process (again, more in San Jose and Cabo than here in the East Cape) that is uniting people to bring this wonderful place back to life.

Hi All,

Hurricane Odile arrived on Sunday.  Although we had power lines and trees down in the area we are safe and have had a bunch of clean up to do.

Hurricane

Cabo received the major force of the storm as the eye passed right on top of Cabo. It will be a few days before we are fishing again but I will update shortly on the conditions.  Please call for availability and we are happy to answer any questions.

Tight lines,

Jeff

Tuna-Dorado Still Fishing: September Special.

Hi All,

Well, it’s been a challenging week with the weather we have been having which did bring some rain and wind. The storm which recently came through was just offshore and has since died down, but a new storm is now forming below us and is likely to be headed our way. The forecast calling for an 80% chance within the next five days… but, anything can happen along the way and we will keep everyone posted.

Sept Tuna

The main focus has still been on the offshore and we are still catching good quality fish just offshore. Dorado and bonito are scattered and there are still some good tuna mixed in with porpoise. Bait is around, but it is sporadic from day to day. The boats that have bait are getting into some good fish.

Sept Dorado

The water off the beach is off-color in most spots, but it cleaning up fast and I will be looking for some fish over the next few days. I have noticed that the water temps actually dropped off nicely after the last storm, so it should actually help the fishing.

The remainder of September does have some openings, so if you are interested in fishing with us, please call and we will be happy to discuss a September special. *

Sept sunset

Looking forward to updating shortly.

Tight lines,

Jeff

Tough Conditions-Still Fishing

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:

marlin.

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.

Jeff

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
