Week of June 16, 2019

The Environment:

Water- 76-80. Colder water this week. Easterly winds have driven colder Pacific water up into the Cortez. Calm mornings, easterly afternoon winds.

Air- Still very cool for mid June. Beautiful weather, cool mornings, afternoon highs in the 80’s.


The Bottom Line

Very good fishing one day and slow the next. The Dorado have finally arrived, quality Yellowfin are outside under the Porpoise. Striped Marlin, Sailfish and a few Blues are biting off the La Ribera to Frailles drop off. A few Wahoo taken this week off the white cliffs at Vinaramas.

Dorado- Finally they’ve arrived in decent numbers. Fish in the 10-25# class are taking trolled lures and Ballyhoo. Very spread

Yellowfin- Weather permitting fleet boats fishing outside 15-50 miles are picking up quality tuna to 70#. Very spread under pods of Porpoise. The warmer water north is the best bet. Trolled Hoochies, cedar plugs, chunk Squid, live Sardine and Caballito are all working.

Billfish- mostly Striped Marlin mixed with Sailfish and a few Blues. Off the La Ribera bank down to Frailles best. Trolled Ballyhoo and live Caballito are the ticket.

Inshore- Nice Pargo and Pompano are being taken inside. Some big Roosterfish released. Not much pressure as most boats targeting the Pelagic’s.
