Rancho Leonero Fish Report: May 21. 2023

Water- 78*. Clear flat, afternoons light SE winds. The water is warming fast. .
Air- Beautiful! clear skies, cool mornings with afternoon highs in the 80’s.

The fishing has really improved this past week! Yellowfin, Dorado, Marlin, are all biting aggressively. Some big tuna taken this week, the largest 145#. A very good week of fishing!

Dorado- A dead whale is floating 6-7 miles directly off the ranch, its holding lots of Dorado in the 20-30# range. Live Mackerel and Caballito are the best baits.

Yellowfin- Anglers are limiting on tuna under Porpoise. The bite started early in the week 40-50 miles offshore, as the week progressed the Porpoise moved in closer. Yesterday the bite was 30 miles directly off Pulmo. Some really nice fish, a 145#er was taken on a cedar plug Friday. Trolled Hoochies, Cedar plugs and Ballyhoo are working.

Billfish- Lots of Striped Marlin, as usual directly off La Ribera on the drop offs. Most boats releasing at least one. Trolled Ballyhoo and lures are taking the fish.

After a late start this year, the fishing has really turned on!

A good start for the 2023 season!
