The tuna bite was once again red hot this past week. Many boats again limiting out on tuna each day. The tuna bite seemed to be good to the north and to the south this week. The boats that found tuna to the north the last few days were 25 miles off shore of Punta Perico and those that went south were about 17 miles close to Los Frailes. The tuna seem to be hitting everything from live bait to the old but reliable cedar plug and everything in between. The largest tuna this week weighed approximately 80lbs. The other specie that seemed to be red hot this week was the Sail fish. Many guests either landed or had shots at numerous Sails each day. The striped marlin and blue marlin were a bit more elusive this week, with many guests having shots at them, but they just didn’t seem to be very hungry. There were a few more dorado caught this week than were landed last week, but still not the numbers we were seeing earlier in the season. There were also some nice roosters landed, with one guest landing a nice 55lb. gallo. We also saw a few trigger fish, pargo, bonita and wahoo this week. Water temperatures continue to be in the mid 80’s, which is what we like to see this time of year. Lots of bait fish in the area, brings in lots of predator fish. Air temps. continue to range from upper 90’s in the day to low 80’s at night.
I caught a 200lb Yellow Fin on El Loco Two on Saturday, September 10th, so 80lbs was not largest
We caught a grip load of tuna September 8th and 9th and then got into some serious roosters on the tenth on El Loco One. Those guys kick ass.
