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.
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!
