Here we have the boys getting ready for another day of fishing on a beautiful Baja Morning
This is Gregg Peltz,Andy Jacob and Don Rock from Wallington New Jersey.  On this day fishing aboard the Eclipse they caught one Sail Fish and two Dorado. Look at the Valdez men!!  They had a nice day on the 3 Hermanos catching two stripe marlin and two dorado.
Look at the Musik boys with their catch of one shark and two stripe marlin.  The Vamonos was busy this day. Here is Vamanos with a great day catching and releasing two Marlin and getting a few tuna
Here are a few shots of some of the cave paintings in the area.  The  hotel and the area offer much more than fishing.  If you would like to take one of our Eco Tours let us know and we will show you what the rest of Baja has to offer.

Water Temperature: The water temperature has stayed fairly constant this week .  We have seen a slight warming of the water.  The water will continue to warm and bring the fish in.  This should be an excellent week of fishing!!

Weather Temperature: We  have seen very comfortable days with high clouds keeping the temps. down at a very nice level.  We are starting to get a little humidity in the air and you can feel that those days of true summer are just around the corner.

Fishing Spots and Distance: Most of the fishing has been fairly close with the boats fishing from inshore to about twenty miles out. 

Off-shore fishing.- The fishing off shore has been very good for Tuna that are running with the Porpise.  Most of them have been in the smaller class from the six to fifteen pound range.  They have been very aggressive taking almost anything that is put thru them.  The dorado and Marlin have slowed slightly this week with many fish being seen but not wanting to take the bait.  We have seen a few more Wahoo than caught this week but with the unexpected strikes those teeth are no match for monofilament.   

In-shore fishing.- The in shore fishing is picking  up with the concentration of balihoo and mullett that have been moving in to the area.  The best fishing has been in the area of Punta Arena and moving south to the La Ribera area.  This has taken place very close to shore with the Jack's and Rooster fish chasing the bait.  Very early mornings have been the best.

Successful lures: For the Dorado it has been white and blue along with green and black.  For the Tuna it has been Blue and Silver hoochies along with cedar plugs and almost any thing else thrown!!

Bait Used: Bait has been Mackrel with the Sardina just now starting to show up in any numbers.  The report is that most of the smaller bait is being caught south in the Cabo Pulmo area.

Highlight of the Week: Those Tuna!!!

See you next week!!!
