Water Temperature: The water temperature has jumped a couple degrees this week with all of the readings taken this week at the eighty four degree mark.  This slight increase should help keep the fishing steady.

Weather Temperature:  The weather temperature has also risen slightly this week.  We began the week with the first true rain we have seen this year.  The rain was a welcome from the heat that we were experiencing.  This rain caused some of the arroyo's to run in the area bringing with it some structure that if given time may hold dorado.    

Fishing Spots and Distance:  The spots and distance the boats are traveling continues to be just about what was reported last week.  The captains have reported that depending upon what you are looking for this will determine where and how far you will want to go.  The Tuna have been out at the 28 mile mark from the hotel and this equates to about 20 miles off the light house.  We have seen a fair number of Marlin both stripe and blue  fairly close to shore  ranging from about two to five miles out  and then again from about twelve to twenty miles out from the Cabo Pulmo to Los Frilies area.  The sail fish have been in the same area at about the twenty five mile mark.  In addition to this the captain's have also reported some Sailfish and Marlin activity in the region of Punta Pescedero.  The report is that the fish are holding from fifteen to about twenty one miles off shore.

Off-shore fishing.-   The off shore fishing this week continues with a Tuna bite that is off La Ribera.  This bite is off shore between one and three miles.  These fish are deep and have been taking Sardina.  Most of the captain's have reported that the bite is best in the morning and using a line in the 20 lb. class is getting more strikes.  The Marlin continue to be close to shore anywhere from two to eight miles off shore.  Most of the action has taken place on the areas of the lighthouse to Cabo Pulmo and again off the shores Punta Pescedero.  The area in from of La Ribera has seen a slight increase in action as well.

In-shore fishing.- The inshore fishing this week was slightly difficult with the rain water we had earlier in the week.  This should improve rapidly as the water clears near the arroyo's.       

Successful lures:  If you are looking for the tuna try live bait and cedar plugs.  For dorado and marlin the report has bee lures consisting of  orange and yellow along with blue and white or green and black.  Pink and blue has also reported to be catching a few fish.   

Bait Used: The bait this week has been for the most part Sardines. Frozen Ballyhoo also has been reported to be taking some very large dorado..
