Sept 9 2018

Water- 88-91. Warmer than usual water. Clear, Flat mornings, afternoon ESE breezes.

Air- very pleasant. Highs in the low 90’s. Some rain.

It’s all about the tuna this week.
Avery very consistent bite. All anglers limiting. Very spread north and south. Most taken on Sardine and some on chunk squid. Some Dorado mixed in. A slower Wahoo bite this week. Lot’s of big Roosterfish along the beach’s. Quite a few billfish around with very light fishing pressure.

Yellowfin- a mile off the hotel. 10-70# tuna. Lot’s of areas both north and south holding tuna. Most within a 1/2 mile off the beach. Limits all anglers.

Dorado- slower this week. Mixed with the tuna. Mostly schooling size. A few nice bulls taken this week.

Billfish. Most anglers going for the tuna. Very light pressure. They are around. Capt Ramon on El Jefe released four Stripers and two sails in one day last week. Trolled Ballyhoo by far the best bait.

Inshore- As usual good fishing inside. Some nice Pargo and lots of Roosters. Again not much pressure.

Water- cooler this week 85-87. Clear, flat, the usual afternoon ESE breezes.

Air- Very pleasant for September, highs in the 80’s. Afternoon rain yesterday..

Again this week, it’s all about the Yellowfin. The fish are bunched up close to the hotel both north and south. The inshore fishing has been very good with lots of Pompano, Pargo and big Amberjack. Big Roosterfish were released all week. A few Dorado and Wahoo were in the mix as well. Good bait available Sardine, Mackerel, and Squid all working.

Yellowfin- Two areas have been producing limits of 10-40# fish, with a few taken to 70#. 1-2 miles off Punta Pescadero the tuna have been biting almost exclusively on chunk Squid. 1-2 miles off La Ribera, limits of Yellowfin are taking mostly Sardine. The school has moved from Punta Colorado north to La Ribera over the course of the week. Very good tuna fishing !

Dorado- Slower this week. A few nice Bulls were taken..

Inshore- lot’s of big Pompano. Some whopper Pargo and nice sized Amberjack are all biting on the bottom on the inside drop offs.
Big Gallo’s are cruising all the beach’s both north and south. Not much pressure.
Most anglers are staying on the tuna.

Yellowfin- 1-2 miles off Rincon and off Punta Pescadero. Both areas producing limits of Yellowfin from 5-20#’s with the occasional 40-50#er’s mixed in. Sardine is by far the best bait. Earlier in the week some larger Yellowfin in the 30# class were taken under fast moving schools of Porpoise 10-15 miles offshore. All on Hoochies and Cedar plugs. Quite a few White Skipjack are being taken as well.

Inshore- Pargo in the 5-15 # class, nice Pompano and big Amberjack are coming off the inside drop off’s. All taken on Squid.

It has been a good year for Yellowfin , tuna taken literally every fishable day this season, this week was no exception.. The big news this week is Wahoo.. Very similar fishing this week as in the past months for the tuna, Pargo, Amberjack, Pompano and Roosterfish. Very good consistent fishing! The Wahoo are a long ride south off Cerro Colorado, anglers taking the ride are picking up two or three fish in the 20-50# class on marauders and Rapala's.. Striped Marlin mixed with Sails and Blues are 20-30 miles offshore.. Mackerel and Squid and Sardine are available
