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!
With the weather report not looking so great for the Loreto waters we suggested to our clients that it would probably be better to cancel yesterday and fish early today before an afternoon wind was supposed to arrive. They trusted our judgement and they were glad they did. We left Puerto Escondido made a quick stop to make some bait then headed out. Within minutes of arriving to our spot we were hooked up to a yellowtail. The bite was on!! We hooked up to several good sized yellowtail, lost a few but managed to put 6 on board. The yellows turned off for a bit but we landed a large cabrilla which put up a great fight, along with a few more cabrilla and a pargo. With the afternoon winds approaching and several great fish on the boat we all decided it was a good time to call an end to four great days of fishing together. Some full coolers will be headed home with these GREAT customers!
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.
