The Environment: Water: Seas have been calm and temps right in the zone, mid-80s Air: Cooler nights with hot, but not oppressive days; lower humidity, frosty margaritas!

The Bottom Line: Truly the best fishing the East Cape has seen for many years. All anglers easily limiting on tuna and dorado. To quote Doug Dennet of Oregon, "We have been coming down here twice a year for 10 years and this has been the best fishing by far." Good bait including sardina and squid.

Billfish – Not many boats chasing billfish with all the tuna and dorado action available. The only boat that did look for marlin landed a blue off Cabo Pulmo on Sat. (9/23).

Tuna – The Tuna bite off Pescadero continues to hold aggressive biters from footballs to 60 pounders. Most boats are coming in early to get their fish in the cooler muy pronto.

Dorado – Schools of dorado are being found all over. There is still a lot of debris from the storm, so just find something floating and look beneath it. It’s a case of finding your own school and picking out some keepers.

Roosterfish – Some good roosters were also taken in clean water around the lighthouse.

Meanwhile, back at the Ranch... Anglers visiting Rancho also worked the bottom and inshore this week and were rewarded with pompano, barred pargo, huachinango, cabrilla and amberjack.
