October 7 2018

Water: 86-88. Still very warm, flat and clear most of the week, a bumpy day Friday. Afternoon ESE light breezes.
Air- Very pleasant, highs in the low 90’s with cool breezey afternoons and evenings.
Brief periods of rain early in the week.

Again this week, it really is.... All about the tuna.... Limits for almost all anglers daily. Nice fish between 10-50#’s are keeping almost all hotel anglers concentrating on the tuna. A few boats are doing very well fishing the bottom ledges and picking up big Pargo, Pompano, and wide variety of other specie. The billfish are being absolutely ignored. A lot of tailers reported off Pta Pescadero. Some nice Wahoo and good sized Dorado have been taken this week, but not many, most of the fleet is staying on the tuna.

Yellowfin - very spread. The tuna are biting off La Ribera all the way to Cerro Colorado. Some were taken about 15 miles off shore under Porpoise.. the larger fish to 50# were off la Ribera and under the Porpoise. The fish further south were smaller. Lot’s and lots around. Taking Squid and live Sardine. Limits almost all anglers!

Inside- Big Pargo have been coming in daily. At least one a week over 30#. The Pompano are biting off the lighthouse. Lot’s of Roosterfish cruising the beach’s.

Water- Rough early this week flat and calm today. 81-82 degrees, cooler this week by five degrees.

Air- pleasant, cool mornings. Highs in the low 80’s..

Finally the fishing is picking back up. Last week was tough, this past week the bite has improved! A strong billfish bite all week and the last couple of days we’ve seen the return of Yellowfin and Dorado. Yesterday we had two Rapalas and one marauder bitten off, the Wahoo are around. The bottom fishing slowed. Lot’s of small to medium sized Roosterfish were released all week. Good live Sardine and Caballito available

Yellowfin- A slow bite early in the week. In the past couple of days the tuna have returned. Some boats limiting all boats catching 10-20# fish. Mostly on Sardine. North off Pescadero one too two miles offshore.

Billfish- Blues, Stripers and Sailfish are plentiful and biting aggressively. The La Ribera drop off and north off Pescadero are producing nice fish. They love the trolled Ballyhoo.

Dorado- Along with the tuna the Dorado have returned. In the same areas as the tuna. Lot’s and lots of schooling peanuts released, with a few nice bulls mixed in. The Sardine are working best.

Roosterfish- from 5 to 20#. The marina jetty’s are producing lots of smaller Gallo’s.



October 28 2018

Water- 83 degrees

Air- Very pleasant, cool mornings, highs in the mid 80’s, clear skies.

A very good week of fishing.
Yellowfin, Dorado, Wahoo, bill fish, Roosterfish, all biting.. Very, very excellent bottom fishing, all made for an excellent week of fishing. Lot’s of live bait available, Sardine, Caballito and some mackerel.

Yellowfin- Lot’s around both inside and outside. Inside the fish are running from 7-40#. Outside under the Porpoise larger to 70#. Inside about 2miles off the Pescadero tuna hole, limits of tuna mostly on Sardine. Outside up to 40 miles offshore under Porpoise larger fish taking cedar plugs, Hoochies, squid, and both Sardine and Caballito. A 76.7 # won the Tuna Shoot. A huge 305#er came in to late to qualify.

Dorado- Best north. Lot’s of smaller schooling fish in the 5-10# range, mixed with some nice bulls. Large schools throughout the bay.

Wahoo- The best Wahoo bite south of Cerro Colorado, 1-2 miles offshore. At least 2-3 fish per boat, that takes the long ride. One of the fleet boats caught nine in one day. Nice fish around 50#.. a lot of Wahoo taken closer as well. Rapalas and marauders best.

Billfish- anglers targeting billfish are releasing Sails, Stripers, Blacks. Boats going for billfish are scoring at least one a day. Accurate Jack Nilsen, fishing on El Jefe released the only spearfish I know of this year!

Bottom- Dan Fugere from San Francisco took a 49.5 pound Dog tooth Pargo this week! We’ve had large Pargo all season with at least one 30#er taken every week.
He broke our record 42.5 taken last month. A harnessed live Bonito did the trick.
Lot’s of Pompano and Sierra taken inshore off the bottom as well.

A good week!..
