July 18 - July 26, 2015

The Environment - Water – 84 to 86 degrees.  Clear and flat all week. Air – Cooler after rain on Wednesday and Thursday.  Highs in the low 90s.

The Bottom Line - It was a fairly slow week of fishing; however billfish fishing remains very good. Sailfish, striped and blue marlin have been taking both bait and lures fairly close to the ranch all week.

Yellowfin Tuna –Schools of smaller yellowfin were biting early in the week, south off Vinorama.

Billfish – The blues are taking both lures and trolled ballyhoo. The and stripers continue to prefer live cabillitos.

Roosterfish – – The larger 50-pound plus fish are on the first drop offs in deeper water.  Almost all were taken on cabillitos. It has been a good week for roosters, slowing a little yesterday.


Meanwhile, back at the Ranch … The inshore bottom fishing has been very, very good.  One boat caught 19 cabrilla and believe it or not, 3 yellowtail, in 85 degree water!
