Fishing update

Well I’ve been a little busy getting married! Now that that is over with maybe I can get back to fishing. So where are the charters???

Got out today with one group for four hours. We went about a mile before our first hook-up. We had four sierra on and they were the largest I’ve seen all year. We kept going back and forth over the same spot until we had a dozen 4-8.5# sierra and a half dozen cabrilla up to 7#. Maybe I’ll give out the location in a few days.

I was snorkeling the first island (Blanca) off of the Pilar beach a week ago when the water was clear. There were tremendous baitfish on the west side. I swam over one drop and then started to see the cabrilla. I saw at least a dozen to 10#, hundreds of nice sierra, skipjack, large ladyfish, and many other species. The snorkeling was excellent. Wish I had a rod. The bait is still there and all over in close. Just look for the birds. A kayak is probably your best bet to attack them. Let me know if you’d like to rent one –

Off the beach at Pilar the guys are getting some nice smaller fish. We had great battles today with the larger sierras and cabrilla. I’m going to try the light tackle tomorrow!

I thought I overheard some bonita caught (probably at the island). One panga pulled in a nice catch of yellowtail at the island (not sure how deep). There is a great sierra bite around Deer Island. I saw them popping all over off of the Posada beach this afternoon. I guess some sails and dorado were seen in close. One boat got some 37mi. south today. It sounded a little thin from the rest of the fleet that was out today. I might not sleep too well tonight but I am not going to be discouraged. The water is still warm and hopefully after the full moon, mellower tides, and lack of wind for a few days it will blue up. The marlin have got to be moving back through soon. There is an awesome temp break coming our way. When it hits the island the yellowtail should definitely be on. Saw a nice catch of golden spotted bass and small grouper from the pangueros, who I believe caught them just down from the sea mounts.

If you come down you shouldn’t be disappointed. Maybe I’ll find some time to sample the corvina coming in or the bass lakes that should be turning on soon. Most likely some pelagic mania will reward us again.

The week before most of the bite was on the reef and just outside. Lots of small bulls in the 7-15# range. We found one large tree that produced some great action before I had to run in for the rehearsal dinner (priorities?). Temps are around 78 with the break down to 74. It ain’t over yet. I worked that temp break last year out to 30mi. south of us for tuna, dorado, and marlin until Dec. 5th last year and the water is warmer this year. Hopefully we’ll have some excellent offshore reports soon. The weather sure is nice and it’s the last chance you’ll get until next year!

tight lines,
