FISHING AND CONDITION REPORT

WEEK: April 5h week

While the fishing has been good both inshore and offshore, any fish taken on the fly rod from shore is always noteworthy. Earlier in the week our fly fishing guide, Lance Peterson, landed an estimated 30lb roosterfish while sight casting from the beach.

Water Temperature: The average sea surface temperature was 75 F and there were a few days that reached 78 F. These ideal temperatures have attracted large numbers of marlin, dorado, roosterfish and tons of bait.

 

Air Temperature: Night time temperatures down to 60F with day time high's up to 85 F have made for absolutely classic East Cape weather: sunny days and not a puff of wind.

 

Fishing Spots and Distance:The fishing continues to be close to the Hotel. That is to say, no more than 20 miles. Punta Pescadero has been fishing very well. The area around the Lighthouse has been outstanding for roosterfish and jack crevalle. And La Ribera is producing some fine pargo and cabrilla.      

 

Off-shore Fishing: While the tuna have been a no show so far there are plenty of marlin and even a few sailfish in the mix. The dorado we are catching have been quite big for the most part.

 

IIn-shore Fishing: We have been enjoying some very good inshore fishing this week. As already mentioned, there is a large amount of bait along the beaches and of course the roosterfish and jack crevalle have been taking advantage of this. The jacks are in the midst of their spawning mode and can often be seen gathered in huge schools 'daisy- chaining'. They can be tough to move when they are like this but they definitely still bite. You've just got to find them in the right mood. Some of them are very large, well over 20lb's. The roosterfish have been running between 5 and 40lb's and are often spotted in schools of a few to well over a dozen fish. Live bait is very effective for these inshore brutes. The fly fishermen have also been finding outstanding action on roosterfish from both the beach and boats.

 

Bait Used: We are continuing to see a good supply of sardina (flat iron herring). The options for larger offshore baits have been mackerel, rayadillos, and caballitos.

 

Highlight of the Week:  While the fishing has been good both inshore and offshore, any fish taken on the fly rod from shore is always noteworthy. Earlier in the week our fly fishing guide, Lance Peterson , landed an estimated 30lb roosterfish while sight casting from the beach.

 

 

See you Next Week!!!

 

Saludos from you second home in paradise!
