Water Temperature: This past week water temperature is up and down, as we had two storms passing by, one each week, left us with many changes during this time, but an average of 84F is what we've been having.

Air Temperature: Let me tell that finally hot weather is gone! Like always October is the month by preference at the East Cape for its great fishing and enjoyable temperature. Low 90´s is a constant every day and maybe below 80 some nights.

Fishing Spots and Distance: Thanks to the storms that pass by, our fishing grounds are 15 miles away from the Hotel, from La Ribera banks to Lighthouse, is where the actions. Some boats keep going south to Los Frailes 30 to 40 miles south from us, getting same results than the rest, good fishing everywhere.

Off-shore Fishing: Dorado action is unbelievable right now, after the storms the bite has kept going and going everyday. Lots of dorado school around the East Cape. Sailfish also bite very well during the week. Tuna slowed down but they still in the area.


In-shore Fishing: Great Roosterfish action this weeks, the pangas were catching 4 to 6 the days they went after them, plus many other different species like: sierra, snappers and ladyfish..

Bait Used: Not many squids this week, but sardines and caballito keep the preference bait.

 
Highlight of the Week:

 

I would like to say Thanks to all of our fishermen and ladies who release a fish this week. We are very happy to say that our effort to keep the Sea of Cortez full of life is giving its results. It is the first time that we see almost the same number of Dorado caught than release.

 

At the same time, every single billfish this week was also release.

 

 

 

See you next week!!!

 

Saludos from your second home in paradise!
