The Environment:

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..


The Bottom Line

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.

Meanwhile, back at the Ranch
