Today well today...lets just say it was one of those days you dream about! Weather was perfect with a slight breeze. The Sea of Cortez was absolutely beautiful, the water color and temp was the best we've seen in awhile. We were on the hunt for sargasso, heading offshore our eyes were working hard. Boom there it was the paddy we were looking for, instantly spotted and started hooking dorado. We caught a few and decided to keep going further out to see what else we could find, there it was again an area of sargasso and it was "wide open" on dorado!! The dorado were everywhere. After some fun chaos we decided to keep heading out and start trolling. The dorado were so thick we couldn't get away from them haha. Here they were again striking our Magbay lures. We limited out on dorado so pulled the lines in and continued further offshore to try and find some tuna and marlin. While trolling further out we had a solid marlin strike again on our Magbay Lures, continuing on we caught and released a beautiful sailfish. Making our way back to Puerto Escondido we had a very large stripped marlin checking out our lures, it was a very large and beautiful fish, we tossed a live bait in but had no luck. This is a day we will all talk about for some time.
Yesterday and today we had clients that wanted to get dorado, we left Puerto Escondido early in the morning both days hoping to fulfill their wish. We were on a direct mission to find dorado. We trolled feathers as we looked for any possible sign that would lead us to the dorado. We were getting into water temps ranging from 80-89º in the warmest spots, we were seeing more flying fish than in previous days so we were sure it would be a good day. We searched long and hard both days. We finally started to find small pieces of kelp (sargasso) which led us to very large patties, yesterday we found the dorado!! Unfortunately we were not lucky enough to get the bite. Today we were back on some more patties as well but the dorado weren't home. The anticipation is killing us because it's going to be any day until we are landing them!
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.
