East Cape fishing water temperature was very consistent, beautiful warm Sea of Cortés summer water. This week's air temperature was actually a little less warm than last week, a nice breeze helped a lot.
For fishing you have a decision this week, either to go up North by Punta Pescadero about 15 miles, or go right in front of La Rivera, about 10 miles.
Offshore fishing this week concentrated in two areas, in front of La Rivera to fish for tuna, amberjack, jack crevalle, pargo and yes, 2 yellowtail. Or go up north to fish for billfish and the very few dorado available.
There weren't that many guests fishing inshore for roosterfish this past week, but Arturo reported that those boats that did tried did well.
Mackerel was most of the bait used last week, but finally there was some sardine available, the problem is that you have to make the run all the way to Frailes to get it, and then come back to fish in La Rivera pescaderos.
East Cape had very steady fishing for almost everything, right in front of La Rivera, great bill fishing as well, but the amazing thing this past week was the YELLOWTAIL caught right in the middle of summer, as my brother Esaul says when asked what is the best time to fish in our area?. "It is when you are down here."
