This week in the East Cape the fishing dropped off a bit from last week, but boats are still having relatively good days out on the water. Those who fished inshore had lots of success on the rooster and jacks. Ken Momber on board the super panga “Mini Hooker” landed 113 roosters and 6 jacks in 5 days of fishing. Many anglers chose to go off shore and hit the striped marlin and sailfish which seem to be everywhere. Many are landing one or two per day, but are seeing up to 15 in a day. Bill and Patty Buffington of Northern California landed the first blue marlin of the season at Palmas De Cortez.
The talk around the docks this week seemed to be centered around the Dorado. The numbers weren’t that hot, but it was the size of the ones that were caught that everyone was talking about. We saw a nice 50lb. dorado a few in the 40lb. range and even more in the 30-40 pound range. We also saw some of the first wahoo of the season this week with three being landed, the biggest was 40 pounds. We are still seeing a few cabrilla and pargo, but the ones I saw had no size to them. Water temperatures continued to be in the low to mid 70’s with air temperatures in the low 80’s. Thursday and Friday were a little windy, but we don’t expect that to last. The fishing and weather are heating up on the East Cape! We hope to see you down here soon! Until next week! Eddie Dalmau/Baja’s Van Wormer Resorts.
