Water Temperature: Warming steadly to between 70 - 74 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 having 85 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 from our pier. Fish are being found between 1- and 3-miles from the beach. Also about a mile from the Hotel Yellowtail showed up.

 

Off-shore Fishing:  Our skippers are spotting striped marlin and dorado in excellent numbers. Everything looks great for the weeks ahead.

 

In-shore Fishing: On Sunday 8th, we had our small Sierra tournament, that came out really good. Winner was a 3.73 lb Sierra caught by David Cosio who came from Cabo, and is brother of our captain Vicente. We are still catching them all around.

 

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

 

Highlight of the Week: Yellowtails finally arrived and on very good sizes. Most o

 

See you next week!!!

 

Saludos from your second home in paradise!
