Water Temperature: The water temperature has not changed much this week with it just about perfect with the water temps. being anywhere from 80-84.  This is the water temps. that seem to have the "life" in them.  We have seen different fish concentrating and being caught in different water  temperatures. The Stripe Marlin have been caught in the water that is slightly cooler in the 80 degree mark while the Tuna have been out slightly further where the water is nearing the mid 80's mark.

Weather Temperature:  The Temperature has stayed on the warm side this week with temps. reaching the mid 90's.  We have seen slightly more humidity this week making the slight breezes in the afternoon a welcome pleasure.  The evenings have been very comfortable with clear skies and a full moon.  

Fishing Spots and Distance:  The fishing has been taking place mostly South to Southeast of the hotel.  The Tuna fishing has been out around the ten to fifteen mile mark where the captains have been trolling thru the schools of Porpise.  The Tuna have ranged in size from five to thirty five pounds.  The Marlin and Wahoo fishing has taken place very close to shore.  The captains have been finding them about two to three miles out from in front of La Ribera South as far as Cabo Pulmo.  

Off-shore fishing.- Off shore the fishing continues strong for Tuna.  We have seen a few Dorado mixed in as well.  The Marlin bite continues to stay fairly strong with a few Blue Marlin being seen.   

In-shore fishing.- The inshore this week has produced some very nice fish with some very big Pargo being caught.  One angler caught a sixteen pound Pargo just  under the boats at the hotel as his boat was waiting for the dock to clear at the end of the day.  We have also seen some big roosters in the twenty to fifty pound range.  Lot's of these fish have been investigating the baits but few of them have been caught.  This may be why people say the rooster is one of the smartest fish in the ocean.

Successful lures: The Lures for the Tuna have been cedar plugs along with hoochies in the colors of white and red or blue and pink and finally blue and white.  The jigs for the Marlin and Wahoo have been pertolero, pink and black or black and green and white and blue.  

Bait Used: The bait this week continues to be Mullett for the most part.  We did have our first small migration of Sardina this week.  This was nice to see.  As most of you know the Sardina can help fishing like no other bait.  They are excellent for inshore bait fishing or off shore for chuming the Tuna and Dorado and other fish.  We hope they continue to be available but we will have to wait and see. 

Highlight of the Week:  The Tuna are back !!  The water is warm and the fishing is great. We have even seen a few big Blue Marlin!!   We would like to mention that the new flight from Ontario, CA has begun  to see more  Click here!!!!

See you next week!
