Fishing continues to be very good down here in the East Cape. With more and more guests arriving and more boats going out each day, the fish counts are getting up to the numbers that we are use to.
This week the tuna bite continued with yellowfins coming in from as small as 20lbs. to as big as 190lbs. Today on the dock I weighed a 57lb. and a 78lb. Yellowfin.
We are also seeing plenty of dorado up to 45lbs, with the average size coming in at 25lbs.
Marlin seemed to be the fish of choice this week, with two tournament groups going after billfish. A few boats landed 7-10 billfish in one day with the average boat coming in with 1-3 billfish. Wahoo are still around and we are seeing good numbers week to week. Today I saw two nice size wahoo that weighed in at 30lbs. and 38lbs. Punta Colorada guest Bud Goodman landed a 110lbs. tuna, 17 Dorado, 14 Amber Jack, 2 pargos and 2 roosters in his three days of fishing. Over at Playa Del Sol, the Dark of the Moon tournament reported on 10 Anglers fished a total of 15 Cruisers over 4 days, 13 Tuna, 22 Marlin, 1 Mako, 7 Dorado.
The weather has been very warm down here with highs in the mid 90’s and lows in the upper 70’s all week long. Water temperatures have been in the upper 70’s to low 80’s.
