9/26

Headed out today mainly targeting yellowfin tuna. We ran offshore outside of Catalina quickly spotting a seat cushion floating and a marlin hanging out near by, didn't have any luck there so continued on. After trolling for a couple hours we found what we were looking for, birds and porpoise. Made our way over to them putting on the cedar plugs and trolling through them, didn't take long and lines starting going off. After while seemed like the tuna went back down so we moved along. While making our way back in we found a sailfish who gave us two good strikes on the lures but were not able to get the hook up. There was tons of life on the water, three pods of whales, turtles, seals, bait, birds, and dolphins. Water temp ranged from 84-86 and water could was a beautiful blue with very calm seas. Should be able to get a couple more days like this before the next storm.

9/21

It was a stormy week in Loreto with high winds. We got out Friday 9/21 and started our trip out checking on the bottom fishing, it was a slow bite and a strong current. Caught a decent pargo then decided to move offshore. Heading offshore the water was still a little rough from the previous storm. We got outside Catalan and began trolling, finding porpoise and birds but unfortunately no tuna with with. Spotted a striped marlin that went under as we approached and were unable to get a bite. Continuing to troll we ending up landing a beautiful sailfish that we released. Overall it was a pretty slow day, which was also confirmed with reports from "Bad Company" and "Sea Esta" with them reporting with catching a shark, two yellowtail, and a grouper. Lots of good sign offshore just wasn't our day. Water temps 86-88, good water color, semi rough water.

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.

7/6-7/7/18

It's that time of the year again, Fishn for the Mission tournament. Fishing for the Mission is an annual tournament for Dorado with an "other species" category, that benefits the Mission and people of Loreto. It's a great event for our community. It is a two day tournament, yesterday being the first day our team decided to go out far with big hopes of finding big dorado since everything closer in has been small. Day one ended up being a long boat ride, not being able to find any sargasso left us with some small mahi-mahi mahi-mahi we caught while trolling. Day two started off with a bang, this morning the sun was barely even up  as we came across our first paddy loaded with dorado. We had some fun for awhile but weren't getting the size we were hoping for continuing on with not a lot of luck a team decision led us to shoot for the other species category. So off with wishes to land some big alma jacks and or yellowtail. Our plan paid off and we landed some good sized yellowtail and cabrilla. Off to the scales we went. We ended up getting 3rd place in the "Other species" category but had a great two days on the water and caught a lot of fish. Overall the weekend was good for all participants. Thanks to all for organizing and participating in this great event hosted by Chris Wheaton.

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.
