Second day in a row we found the giant yellowfin tuna out of Loreto. We set up just like we did yesterday. We set up on the anchor and started chunking squid. The biggest difference this time was the fish came up on a live mackerel and took angler Jorge Lazo for a ride. It was caught on an Accurate Valiant 800 with 60 pound test and 100 pound leader. These size fish are only in Loreto for a limited time so we were really happy to land this big boy. He weighed in at 319 pounds even.

Today was an incredible day on the water. We left Puerto Escondido around 5:30 on the hunt for giant yellowfin tuna. We had some report from local commercial fisherman that had seen some crashing on the surface the day before. We got set up on our spot and started chunking squid. Around 11:30 in the afternoon we were hooked up. We ended up landing a 212.5 pound yellowfin tuna. The fight took about an hour and was caught on a Seeker custom rod and Okuma Makaira 50w with 100 pound Hi-Seas leader and 80 pound test. Great day of fishing in Loreto for tuna.

Another awesome day fishing in Loreto today! We left out of Puerto Escondido around 7am and traveled South around Isla Catalan. We were fishing a high spot around the island and found a lot of yellowtail, grouper, and snapper. The family we were with had never been fishing in Loreto before so needless to say they were very pleased with all the fish we caught. The fishing around the Loreto area lately has been very consistent and holding a lot of fish. The weather was perfect today with almost no wind and 80 degree temperatures. All of the fishing we did today was bottom fishing. We ended up with limits on out fish by around noon and headed back to Loreto to enjoy the rest of the day by the pool. If you are interested in fishing in Loreto please give Outpost Charters a call to book your trip today.

Today was a great day fishing in Loreto. Outpost Charters took a family fishing offshore. We fished the Islands of Loreto around Isla Catalan. The weather was very nice with just a slight breeze. This family had a great time catching fish all day long! We were fishing on a high spot with mackerel on the bottom. We caught limits on yellowtail, snapper, and cabrilla. The kids even got to catch a lot of fish themselves. We had a great time taking this fmaily fishing and hope the visit us in Loreto again soon.

The fishing in Loreto has been on fire this month!! We had another day with limits on yellowtail, grouper, and snapper. It was all smiles today fishing out of Loreto. The offshore fishing for bottom fish has been very consistent. Once again we had awesome weather, customers and most importantly we caught a lot of fish. We left early this morning out of the Loreto marina and headed South to fish around Isla Coronado. By around 1pm we had limits on everything and were headed back to the marina to celebrate.

Today was another great day of fishing out of Loreto, Baja Mexico. We caught a ton of fish and had a blast fishing the Sea of Cortez. We had a great group of guys visiting Loreto from Southern California. They chartered our 40; Luhrs named Cat N' Reel and we left Puerto Escondido around 7am. We loaded up the boat with the customers and crew and headed about 30 miles offshore to fish the South part of the islands of Loreto. From the second we arrived to the high spot we usually fish we were hooking up. The weather was perfect all day and the water was very blue. We were fishing live bait on the bottom and ended up having the best day out of any boat fishing out of Loreto. Our total fish count was 15 yellowtail, 5 cabrilla, 2 pargo, and 1 amberjack. The customers were happy and so was the crew. We could not have asked for a better day fishing out of Loreto.

Today was an amazing day fishing on the Sea of Cortez. We had a great group of people with us including local Loreto legend Augie as well as many other locals and friends. The group chartered us to fish the outer islands of Loreto. We spent most of the day fishing a high spot we frequent just south of Catalina Island. Today was mostly bottom fishing with live bait at around 120 ft. A lot of the time when fishing in Loreto you can get some nice sized yellowtail fishing the bottom. Total fish count for todays trip was 10 yellowtail, 1 amberjack, 2 cabrilla (seabass) and 3 pargo (snapper). Overall you could not have asked for a better day fishing on the Sea of Cortez out of Loreto.
