Fishing in November continues to be excellent for all. We just came off the water having fished two pangas for the Marvin Paul party and had a fantastic day. Lots of roosters, jacks, sierras, dorado and one very nice Wahoo ate their flies today. Add to that near perfect weather, good conversation and a day doesn't get much better.
Our folks have been catching roosters, Jacks and Sierras from the beach with the odd barred pargo, lookdown and lady fish thrown in. We got the opportunity to take a guides day off this past Tuesday and spent the day around Boca del Alamo and the first rocks going into Bahia del los Muertos. My first cast of the day nailed a nice rooster, the first of several that day followed by Jack Crevalles, sierras and pargo. We snorkeled around the rocks and watched a host of predators tear into a large bait ball of sardina. We very much enjoyed the tranquil scene of the reef as well. Lots of parrot fish, angle fish, yellow fin croaker, snappers and fish I do not know the names of were on constant parade in an around the rocks and coral heads.
The fishing fleets has been hitting dorado and sails off Punto Pescadero, the Gordo Banks, Medgano Blanco and straight out from Punta Colorada. The tuna bite is for the most part on at the Gordos. Wahoo, striped marlin and several Blue Marlin rounded out the catch this past week.
The weather continues with calm winds, warm temperatures and flat seas. The mornings are cool enough to almost want a sweat shirt. Sea surface temperatures are holding at 82 degrees. November is a great time on the Baja and all too often overlooked. As I look around the hotel I see a lot of familiar faces of folks who have been coming here in the fall. They are on to something and have good reason to return year after year.
