Loreto - Winds have been a problem here. When anglers can get out the
yellowtail bite is fair on some days and good on others. The yellowtail are 15
to 20 pounds with some yellowtail to 28 pounds.
Paz - Fishing for yellowtail has been good for the last two months, but the catch
has slowed to a few firecracker yellows. The winds have kept anglers off the
water some days, but the bite is heating up for a wide variety species: pargo,
grouper, dog tooth snapper, cabrilla, and the first dorado of the season.
East Cape - This area too
has lots of marlin in the area but few biters. The ones caught are coming on
live bait, rather than trolled lures. The boats only have to go a few miles to find the marlin. There are a few dorado showing up, but the
best bite has been in the near-shore areas for small to medium-size rooster
fish and pompano.
Del Cabo – Most of the charters
are pursuing the marlin because of the growing numbers in the area. Offshore billfish continue to be caught and it looks like this bite will just keep getting better.
Inshore fishing has been off and on, but there have been some great days for
roosterfish, pompano, jacks and a few Cabrilla.
Cabo San Lucas- -The striped marlin fishing continues to be
the best bet. Yellowfin tuna are absent and dorado numbers are very low. The
yellowtail bite has slowed down as well, but for the inshore fishermen the
rooster fishing as been very good. Offshore the billfish are you're best bet
