Week of October 6, 2019

The Environment:

Water- 83-84. Clear and flat all week.

Air- Beautiful fall weather, cool mornings in the 60’s, highs in the mid 80’s, clear skies..


The Bottom Line

A decent week of fishing. A strong Dorado and Bill fish bite, with few big Wahoo taken, wide open bottom fishing, and lot’s of big Roosterfish. A few nice Yellowfin were taken daily. Sardine are the bait of choice and plentiful. Lot’s and lots of Skipjack.

Dorado- Bigger fish this week. Early in the week 5-12# er’s, and as the week progressed quite a few 20-25# er’s taken. Most taken on Sardine around the lighthouse.. they’ve been schooling close to the bottom.

Billfish- Lot’s of Stripers mixed with some big Blues and a few Sailfish. Very spread, but as usual very concentrated off the La Ribera drop off all the way down to Frailles.

Anglers targeting are releasing at least one a day. Slow trolled Ballyhoo, live Caballito and Sardine are working.

Inshore/Bottom- Very, very good fishing inside off the bottom. Big Pompano to 10#’s, nice Dog tooth Snapper, (Pargo) to 20#, and quality Amberjack to 35#’s. Off La Ribera and La Capilla.. They love the chunked Skipjack and Squid.

Roosterfish- Light fishing pressure, lot’s around in the 10-50# class. Taking the Sardine and Caballito..

Skipjack- really worth mentioning. Loads of Skipjack around! For Anglers wanting to pull on a tough fighter, there are unlimited Skippies to test your light gear. They make great bait as well.
