The East Cape fishing area has not had much change in water temperature since we started with full swing in our summer. Water has maintained its temperature very much in our whole bay.
East Cape weather has been almost normal in that we reached the 100 degree mark this past week, still with some nice breezes coming in from the ocean. It really helps.
Our East Cape sportfishing fleet concentrated on fishing mostly South. Distance varies on the the species that you are targeting. Ranges vary from 15 to 35 miles.
Offshore billfishing is the major thing right now at East Cape, with some nice blues and lots of sails around, and finally the number of stripers has come down, as it should during the summer. Tuna are around, but dorado aren't much.
Inshore fishing at East Cape is as always with great action from right in front of the resort all the way to Las Barracas, here and there. You are sure to have a great time.
Some sardine bait made an appearance this past week, as well as some mackerel. Caballito and ballyhoo also.
If you are coming down to East Cape, expect to fish for tuna and billfish.
