FALL FISHING REPORT FOR BOATS OUT OF EAST CAPE'S BUENA VISTA BEACH RESORT
Sept. 23-29, 2005, Axel Valdez, Buena Vista Beach Resort, East Cape sportfishing report, Baja Sur, Mexico:
Total boats out 31; Fishermen 96; Weather Low 80's-High 90's; Water Temperature: 82-86. Fish count, including released fish: Blue Marlin 1; Striped Marlin 7; Sailfish 3; Dorado 12; Tuna 130; Wahoo 1; Roosterfish 1; Snapper 9; Amberjack 1; Ladyfish 1; Triggerfish 2; Squid 38; Cabrilla 1; Skip Jack 25; Rainbow Runner 2.
Even with Otis close by our East Cape fishing water maintained its nice warm temperature. Early in the week the air temperature sometimes got to 100, but it cooled off as the week went on. It rained and was cloudy on Wednesday and Thursday, but it should be very nice for the coming week.
The whole Sea of Cortez is happening, North to El Cardonal to South to Los Frailes and middle spots as well. Our East Cape sportfishing fleet is making bait in the morning about 2 miles out in front of the resort. Then they are taking off to find tuna, dorado or billfish.
Not many East Cape guests are fishing for inshore species, but fishing in front of La Rivera or in the pescaderos, or fish grounds, in front of Cerro verde, north of our bay, produced some pargos, jacks and other good eating fish. Mackerel and some caballito are still available, but most of everyone is using squid as caught bait. The squid in front of the resorts have now been there for about three weeks, which makes for great bait and great steaks as well.
