Hi Everyone,

The east cape has had some wind over the last week, but as of yesterday,  the wind is forecast to blow for a few days in the east cape with a few nice days mixed in. Spring fishing is really starting to kick in and if you pick your days you can find some great fish of the beach.

Roosterfish

If you get out early there are some dorado and marlin scattered around in the east cape and several boats have done well. Cabo has been the best producer and most of our guiding will be out of Cabo as it’s producing great snapper, small roosters and plenty of sierra.

There are also some really nice jacks in the mix as well in Cabo so it keeps thongs interesting.  We are talking bookings for the season and have a few open spots. Rancho Leonero hotel will be reopening next week and If anyone has questions, please don’t hesitate to email or give us a call to discuss.

Tight lines,

Jeff.

Hi All, This past week we have seen some great weather and pleasant  conditions. The highs have been in the high 70’s and the fishing has been solid.

East Cape: On the east cape  we are still seeing good bait along the shore and this is drawing in some quality fishing right off the shore. Wind can be a factor and it all depends on the weather that day. Sierra have been active at first light and there have also been some dorado caught this week. Jacks and small roosters have been active along the beaches looking for bait and if you put in some time you can find some nice fish.

Cabo: Cabo has been my main focus this last week and we are definitely seeing some nice fish. The jacks are around and still in spawning mode. We did get few shots at some cruising fish though, but they do scatter once a few cast have been made. Sierra are around and we also landed some nice mid sized roosters and snapper as well.

Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or trip information and we will be happy to answer any questions.

Week of  February 2nd,

Hi All,

This past week we have seen mostly cloudy skies with some rain showers off and on during the days of Friday and Saturday last week. The highs have been in the high 60’s on the cooler days and in the mid to upper 70’s on the warmer days despite the light rain we had in Cabo. Overnight lows have been in the 50’s and the fog has been thick on some mornings on route to Cabo, but lifts as the sun comes up and clears up.

East Cape:

With mostly cloudy, breezy, and cool conditions for most of the week in the East Cape there was not many anglers on the water…We did have a couple spectacular days however with no wind and lots of sun. On those days the fishing was over all pretty good and got into some nice fish. We are still seeing good bait along the shore and this is drawing in some quality fishing right off the shore.

April mackerel

Sierra have been very active in the early mornings, plus some nice jacks and roosters in the mix after the suns up. There have also been some dorado patrolling the beaches giving anglers a shot at a fish they normally would not catch  directly from the beach. I got a call the other day from a very good friend of mine who said he even had a yellow fin tuna come in and chased right into the beach, then bit right at his feet! You just never know what you will encounter along the beach which makes our fishery so diverse.

Jack1

A little further off shore there have been some larger Sierra along with some white Bonita in the 5-10 pound class. The occasional dorado and a small number of marlin have been reported between Buenavista and the lighthouse.

I know a few boats that have been out jigging for yellowtail but have not had much success finding the yellowtail, however they have been catching a few nice snapper which are always fun.

Cabo:

I spent most of the week fishing out of Cabo San Lucas with guests and we had a big swell which made it hard to fish inshore. We did manage to catch a few nice Sierra along with a couple small roosters though. Each day we found big schools of jacks  that were in the spawning mode and would sink out fairly fast after one or two casts.

The whales have arrived in Mag Bay and I took the family out for some whale watching which we all enjoyed. The fishing is still staying strong and I will have an update early this week on the conditions. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or trip information.

Tight lines,

Jeff.

Cabo is Fishing Incredibly Well!

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.

Week of  January 5th

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
