Temperatures are starting to improve. This week we had only two days with north wind.

Dorado:  This week it is hard to find the fish because the Dorado season is
about to end.  We are finding Dorado between 15 to 37 pounds and with good luck you can capture 2 to 4 fish per day. The most popular fishing spot is from the coast line north side of Loreto from El Bajo to El Mangle also on San Bruno and Mensenarios reef.

SAILFISH:  They are available in the same area as Dorado.

Yellowtail:  We had a good fishing week at Pulpito reef, 35 miles north of
Loreto this week. There was a good yellowtail bite with weights from 15 to 25 pounds.  The bait to use is Mackerel.

Rooster Fish: We have Roosterfish from 10 to 20 lb in Las Barracas near San Bruno beach.  Often
we will stop to fish for Rooster after a day of Yellowtail & Dorado fishing. Sardines or mackerel are the best choice for bait.  Mackerel: Available on Coronado or from Loreto. You can catch your own or buy it most early mornings at the marina for  15 pieces for $20 U.S. and 20 pieces for $ 25.00 U.S

Van Wormer Resorts Fishing Report

9/19-9/24

 

Hello everyone,

 

I know this is starting to sound like a broken record, but the fishing this week was the same as it was last week….WIDE OPEN!  There continues to be a great tuna bite to the south between Cabo Pulmo and Los Frailes, with most boats catching limits on nice tuna.  This week the biggest tuna landed weighed in at a whopping 264lbs.  We also saw tuna in the 60lb.-100lb. range, with football size tuna as well.  Most anglers are using sardines, cedar plugs and small to medium marlin lures.  The dorado bite also continues to be very good, with over 500 dorado landed this week between all four resorts.  The billfish was a little slower than last week, but I attribute that to the great tuna bite.  Those who did land billfish went north approximately 20 miles north of Punta Pescadero near Bahia de Los Suenos.  We also saw some nice wahoo numbers with over 20 landed this week.  Some of the other species landed this week included amber jack, pargo, pompano, roosterfish, and bonita.  The giant squid are still being caught right out in front of Hotel Palmas De Cortez with over 150 landed this week.  That is it for this week my friends.  Hope to see you all in the East Cape soon.  Eddie Dalmau/Van Wormer Resorts

MAY 21, 2008

The oncoming moon brought with it some super Marlin fishing as our captain reported many strikes just 8 - 10 miles offshore. Even with light anlging pressure , an average of 5-6 Marlin were caught each day last week.  Just a bit farther out the Sailfish bite remains respectable as Captain Chiro on the Bloody Hook reported 7 Sailfish for 3 offshore days. Captain Chiro also reported 4 Yellowtail Jacks, Several nice Chulas and a mixed bag of Bonito for 1 inshore day.  Captain Adolofo also reported the start of the Roosterfish bite as he landed  4 - 5 each day. The fish were in the 20 - 25 lb range. There was also a noticeable increase in the number of baitfish in the area which is a sure sign that the inshore fishing will pick up in the weeks ahead.

Ixtapa Zihuatanejo weather: Mild temps no rain

Sea Conditions: Calm to Moderate

Bait supply: Excellent
