Today we were back on the waters of Loreto for day 2 with the same group. Water temperatures are slowly climbing, today the Sea of Cortez was knocking on the door of 80ºF. We were unable spot any dorado but we did get into a good amount of grouper (cabrilla), a few snapper (pargo), enough triggerfish for some ceviche for tonights appetizer, more importantly found some yellowtail which have been harder to lock in on this season. Overall it was a good day of fishing with tight lines most of the day.
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.
