Fishing in the East Cape continues to be red hot. More and more species are coming to the dock each day.
This week we say some nice size pompano come in which we hadn’t seen much of this year at all.
The tuna and dorado bite continue to be the talk down here with tuna coming in every day up to 150lbs. as well as dorado up to 50lbs.
The marlin numbers also went way up this week with dozens of billfish coming in every day. The blue marlin are definitely in the area with more than 15 landed this week alone.
The roosters have been hitting from Playa Del Sol to Punta Colorada and there have been some nice big roosters landed this week up to 65lbs. The fleet has been fishing as far north as the ocho-ocho near Ceravo Island down to Los Frailes to the south. Although there has been really good fishing as close as 5 miles east of Palmas De Cortez as well as light house point.
The East Cape really lived up to its reputation as having the most variety of species of any location in the word. This week some of the species we saw at the dock included tuna, dorado, pargo, cabrilla, amber jacks, jack cravalle, pompano, sierra, yellowtail, roosters, wahoo, sailfish, striped marlin and blue marlin. I even saw fish come to the dock that I could tell you what they were.
The weather this week has been in the upper 90’s to low 100’s with the over night low getting down around 75 each night. Water temperatures have been ideal for fishing, ranging from 80-85 degrees.
That is it for this week. I hope to have a Dorado Shoot Out report next week.
