Mr. Harrison and friends from Colfax, WA caught this two tunas and a dorado. They fished on the Liliana with Marcos and Santigo. Most of the fish is being found up North by the 88' bank.

Mr. Taylor party released 2 of their 8 dorados this day, while fishing with Jesus Araiza on the Eclipse. This may be Mr. Araiza last year as a captain as he announced his retirement for the end of this season. But this is his fourth year saying the same thing, so we'll see what happens. We will always be happy to have him.

Water Temperature:   Water continues to stay about the same, finding better and warmer water up North, it is colder down South. We recorded water up to 69 degrees during the week, but it doesn't seem to affect the fishing, as even inshore were is cooler we are finding great fishing.  

Air Temperature:  Even with some days with what we called the "last winds of the winter", It is very nice and it was not too strong.

Fishing Spots and Distance:  Arturo reported that the boats continue going North from right straight out in front of the resort to Muertos Bay. Boats are fishing from 25 - 40 miles out. Far for us, but if the fish is there, that's where we are going.

Off-shore Fishing: Dorados up to 55 lbs this past week with most of them being in the 35-40 lbs range. Tuna continues to be a hit and miss, still good numbers when you find them, football to mid size. Good marlin fishing, most stripers, and even with the cold water we starting to see some early arrivals of sailfish.

In-shore Fishing: Excellent beach fishing, huge roosterfish, hug jackravelles, and amberjacks, snapper, sierra and groupers, man this is the time to come and bring light tackle. They aren't going further than La Rivera, but the best fishing was up Norht by El Cardonal, where they saw the biggest roosters. Arturo also mentioned that in front of the resort is crazy, in the morning and when the boats return. If you can cast you can catch them.

Successful Lures:   Captains reported to Arturo that what the colors that have been more successful are the mean-joe-green and petrolero, with chivato coming in a close third.

Bait Used:  Mackerel, caballito and sardine, no problem with bait. 

Highlight of the Week:  In-shore fishing has been great, with great catches on almost everything.
