Oct. 14-20, 2005, Axel Valdez, Buena Vista Beach Resort, East Cape fishing, Mexico:
Total East Cape charter fishing boats out 71; Fishermen 213; Weather Low 80's- Mid 90's; Water Temperature: 78-83. Catch including released fish: Striped Marlin 16, Sailfish 19, Dorado 15, Tuna 33, Wahoo 5, Roosterfish 34, Snapper 8, Jack Crevalle 1, Amberjack 1, Pompano 6, Triggerfish 2, Squid 14, Cabrilla 1, Skip Jack 20, Sierra 1, and Rainbow Runner 5.
With this week's first winter winds at East Cape, our water temperature dropped a little, still our sportfishing fleet continued to find good warm water.
Last weekend was very nice with great fishing days, but on Monday wind started from the Northeast, this lasted until Thursday, cooling those four days. It is nice and warm, but with some wind.
Fishing distance didn't vary much for this past week, because our fleet was traveling about 25 miles average, still some of our guests that wanted to find tuna went further with mixed results.
Billfishing continues to be very good at East Cape, but with this week's wind our water turned. Dorado and tuna were out there, but not in great numbers. Some guests tried fishing for wahoo and they did well.
The squid party continues and still right in front of the hotel, about a mile, but now it is more common to hear that the bite is not as strong as it was in the past. Bottom fishing was very productive this past week and our fleet managed to catch many species of fish.
We continue to have mackerel and some caballito bait, but this week the pangueros had a hard time getting them during the windy days.
