Water Temperature: Warming steadly to between 69 - 73 degrees Fahrenheit. The warming trend is helping bring schools of bait fish close to shore - great for inshore fishing [see below].

 

Air Temperature: We're seeing 80 degrees Fahrenheit days and a comfortable 65F at night. The dreaded north winds have moved on just in time for Spring. We're seeing calm, flat seas... calmer than the pool at our swim-up bar!

 

 

Fishing Spots and Distance: We're getting bent rods around the Lighthouse, La Ribera and Cabo Pulmo, about a 20-mile range grom our pier. Fish are being found between 1- and 3-miles from the beach.

 

Off-shore Fishing:  our skippers are spotting striped marlin and odrado in excellent numbers. There are lots of bait balls with predators crashing them. Everything looks um-um good for the weeks ahead.

 

In-shore Fishing: Small roosters and sierra mackarel dominate. About 30 fishermen congregate on the beach near our pier each morning from gray light to 7 or 7:30 slamming the sierra. This sunday (3/8) we're having a Sierra Sunrise Challenge from the beach, with 40 or more anglers expected. There's nothing quite like sierra for ceviche.

 

Bait Used: Both Mackerel and Big Sardines (sardineta) are readily available.

 

Highlight of the Week: Dorado made a nice showing and were more than willing to play. Anglers landed 83 of the Golden Speedsters on a cumulative 15 boat trips.

 

See you next week!!!

 

Saludos from your second home in paradise!
