fishing

7/20-7/21

We headed out the past two days in search of the big yellowfin tuna. We had a dorado swimming around us as we were setting up. Our first attempt casting a live mackerel to it started well the after hooking up spit the hook. A quick second cast had a well set hook and landed this quality dorado (mahi-mahi-mahi). We did manage to get three very large tuna near the surface but they did not bite. It's a game of patience so we will be after them again.

Today weather conditions were ideal and the water was good. The bite was a little challenging, but we were able to get a good yellowtail, and some decent snapper and grouper. Just goes to show you how everyday on the water is different. Some days the fishing is incredible and the next day could be the complete opposite. Today was an in between day on catching but still a bunch of fun. You're not gonna be able to catch them sitting in the hotel so its always worth getting out on the water to have your shot at an incredible day!

We got out to our fishing spot for the day a little later than usual after spending some time trying to get bait. After being persistent we got our bait and got the lines in the water. Yellowtail were biting good today but getting them out of the rocks was the challenge. Sticking with it we piled a few yellowtail and some good sized cargo (snapper) on board. At one point we had a very large pargo coming up after a yellowtail we had hooked up, it was quite a site to see. Overall the bite was solid today in Loreto.

Today we headed out with a group of Dodger fans from Los Angeles. The skies were overcast with a slight drizzle here and there. We encountered a large pod of dolphins right away as we headed out into the Sea of Cortez. The bite started off well then died off shortly after. We managed to get a solid combination of yellowtail, grouper, and snapper on the boat. Was a good day for some family fun!

Today we left Puerto Escondido shortly after leaving the marina we spotted a mother and baby fin whale. We continued north in search of dorado we found a weed line that looked promising. We spotted some small dorado on the first patties then a large dorado on a bigger piece of kelp. We worked that one dorado then a few more appeared. We were unable to get a quick bite and our clients only having booked a half day wanted to go bottom fish. We continued north and caught some dinner. In the afternoon part of the crew went out for some fishing with the family, we already knew what was north so wanted to checkout south with a busy schedule ahead. We went south of Catalan where the water was green but had warmed back up to 82°, the weather was calm all day with a slight breeze. A good amount of striped marlin were seen.  Large sargasso patties floating produced 3 dorado for us. While heading back in we spotted some porpoise and trolled the cedar plugs, as luck would have it the tuna were right there with them we landed a total of 10 yellowfin. Made for a great afternoon for some fishing in Loreto with the kids!

6/1/18

To start off the month of June in Loreto we headed out for a day of offshore fishing. The weather was slightly windy and water temps are still slowly rising. We spotted several good size kelp patties unfortunately today there were no dorado home. We continued our way out further into the Sea of Cortez to some quality spots. We ended up getting into several grouper (cabrilla), some decent snappers (pargo) and some large triggerfish. We are expecting that any day the dorado will becoming in larger numbers to these spots.

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.

6/27/17

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.

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.
