Water Temperature:  Good start of the summer water temperature, no strong currents nor winds to affect this condition.  Our friend Mr. Steinman and I  have been monitoring the El Niņo current, and we believe that this year warm current is going to come later on the year, and it may affect next year more, than it will this 2002.  

Weather Temperature:   We continue to have Spring weather, with nice breeze keeping the temperature low in the 90's at the most. This is great for the ladies and children. Because we know fishermen mind, but when fishing is good, it doesn't matter as much.

Fishing Spots and Distance: 

Off-shore fishing.- Not as great as last week, still our captains continue to find good fishing specially for striped marlin.  This week a little more sails and less blues, still they are around as captains have hooked some, but being able keep them.  Sails finally making their appearance this year, we only wish we could say the same about the tuna, even with such good water temperature. Dorado, as long as find something floating you will have a ball with school dorado, or if you are out for Blue marlin, you very likely will bump into one of 40-50 lbs range dorado. All this happening quite close to our hotel 5 to 20 miles out. 

In-shore fishing.- It continues to show great numbers and great quality fish, from the in front of the hotel all the way to Pulmo reef.  You just got to stay looking for fish breaking the surface.  

Successful lures: Not much change, all Baja colors working.. 

Bait Used: Bait continues to be the same, plenty.  Once again this week. 

Highlight of the Week: Some debris in the water, this allowing us to find some school dorado, great this week for Mr. Ireland's Fly fishing group coming from Oregon. You can see their action on the photo gallery.
