After coming off two very tough days of fishing we had some luck. Yesterday the wind was blowing from the south strong enough to throw a wrench into our planned destinations. We fished a few different spots but only pulled a few small fish. Today the wind calmed down some giving us a chance to fish wherever we wanted to. Water temps are still a little all over the place, So we decided to bottom fish. Glad that choice was made because we landed some very solid fish. A monster pargo, almacojack, yellowtail, quite a few cabrilla and some more pargo. It was a great first day for this family as they will be fishing with us a few days while the visit Loreto.
We had an epic day being on the water in Loreto. We left out of Puerto Escondido Marina and ventured out into the Sea of Cortez. Passing two of the Islands of Loreto Isla Monserrate and Isla Santa Catalan we had an encounter with a humpback whale, so was great to have the chance do some whale watching on our way to do some offshore fishing. As we were trolling around we spotted some marlin that we casted some baits to but they just weren't hungry enough at that time. No too long after we had a dorado strike one of our jigs and we were able to land that fish. As we continued trolling through the waters of Loreto our Captain spotted birds in the distance so we made our way towards them and sure enough we found ourselves in a school of yellowfin tuna. A great time was had by all landing these powerful fish. After the bite turned off we made our way back to the marina but not before we had many dolphins putting on a show for us which was a perfect way to end an amazing day.
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.
