Water Temperature:  Not much closer from last week, but still the it is a matter of about an hour run to find the good water, both directions North and South, inshore conditions have really change also, and inshore fishing is great.

Weather Temperature: Yes, we don't see the low 90's much during day anymore, everything is on the high 90's to the very low 100's, still during the evening and night the weather cools a little bit off, coming down to the high 80's.  YES, WE KNOW IT IS HOT, BUT WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE THE FISH BEING CAUGHT.

Fishing Spots and Distance: 

Off-shore fishing.- It was late in the week, but FINALLY THEY HERE, AND THEY ARE A LOT AND WE CAUGHT SOME TO THE 200's LBS. Yes the tuna has finally arrived, very late this week, we caught some beautiful tuna, the numbers may not show it, because I am only talking about the last day, yes, but they are here, and we hope that they are here to stay. Where?  there were three big school found, mostly south east, about 27 miles out. As you may know, those who arrived first got the best of them.  Early in the week, very consistent bill fishing, and we continue to score big on the good size dorados.  

In-shore fishing.- Mr. Vans Gold River California (Northern part of the state), came down with beautiful 15-25 lbs reels, and he and friend Mr. Arellano, have been having excellent days of fishing with Victor Jr. Amberjacks, roosterfish, dorado, tuna, medium size squids, you name it, they had it.  

Successful lures: Good fishing, like the old Baja fisherman said, they are all good.

Bait Used: Mullet, sardine, small jacks, most of the days with plenty, but we have had days where the bait guys limit the resources so everyone get some.

Highlight of the Week: I can talk about good marlin fishing, the good size of the dorados being caught.  But haven't all of we waited long enough to hear this beautiful line. THEY ARE  FINALLY HERE, YES, WE GOT THE TUNA IN, AND IT SEEMS THEY ARE HERE TO STAY, SMALL, MEDIUM, AND VERY BIG TUNA. For those who waited, they would be awarded.  With great airfare from most of the West cost main cities, now it's the time to be down here. But with the conditions we think they are here to stay a while. 

Mr. Byal caught and released 5 stripped marlin in on day. To this point it has been a good day for each 2 not so great, well that right know has changed, it is just a matter of being at the right place at the right time. Heey!! this is fishing, not catching .

Hope to see you next week!!!
