***Fishing numbers do not reflect Bisbee tournament catches.

 

Water Temperature: Underground currents has been the reason, of a unstable waters keeping the warm water all over our beautiful Sea of Cortez.

 

Air Temperature: It has been a great warm week, it has been raining in the mountain giving us a cool breeze during nights.

 

Fishing Spots and Distance: Boats everywhere in the Sea of Cortez, as far as 40 miles south.

 

Off-shore Fishing: Looking for billfish everywhere, but dorado and tuna has been giving fight early in the morning.

 

In-shore Fishing: Right for inshore in front the hotel, has been roosterfish, triggerfish, needlefish action early in the mornings and after fishing full day in a boat.

 

Bait Used: Mostly caballito and mackerel but captains are preferring to fish skip jack tuna with sardines early in the mornings, to get either any of the billfish.

 

Highlight of the Week: A lot of money in the Bisbee's tournament the past week, ending with a fireworks during the award dinner. Congratulations to John Martin of Wildcatter team with a 360lbs blue marlin!

 

See you next week!!!
