After what seemed to be months of below average fishing, which in reality was about 4 weeks, we finally got to see some decent fishing just in time to close out the year. Some times things just don?t work in your favor, but at least those who were down on the East Cape the past few weeks got to enjoy some good fishing. The big news this last week was the much awaited reappearance of the dorado, and not the peanut size we had been seeing. These were nice dorado up to 30lbs. Guest reported dorado to the north and to the south, and I even say a kayaker fishing just off the beach land a nice 25lb. dorado which took him about 20 minutes to land. Most boats were coming in with limits on dorado each of the last few days. The billfish numbers have also been holding steady, as they have been all summer and fall. Last week the Salt Patrol Marlin tournament took place at Hotel Palmas De Cortez and they were able to land and release more than 90 billfish in three days. We also had a nice Black Marlin landed last week that weighed approximately 225lbs. A small black as far as blacks go, but it was nice to hear that they are still out there after going so long without hearing any reports of blacks. The tuna bite has been far to the south near Gordo Banks and most anglers have not wanted to make the run down there with the wind that we have been having down here. We also are starting to see more and more sierra coming to the dock as we move into sierra season. Some of the other species we saw this week included wahoo, pargo, jacks, cabrilla, bonita, pompano and ladyfish. The air temperature is a very comfortable 80-85 in the day and the over night low is in the mid 50?s. Water temps. continue to drop and we are now seeing upper 70?s to low 80?s. There are some great winter rates which are now available, so we hope to see you in the East Cape soon!
