Hello East Cape Fishermen,

This is the Los Barriles fishing report for Thursday, October 3rd to Wednesday, October 9th.

October is the optimal month for weather in Los Barriles, and this last week has not disappointed. The water and air-temps averaged out in the mid-eighties. The winds have remained mostly calm.

The yellowfin tuna bite dropped off all week. For some reason, the tuna have moved thirty-three mile south and fourty-three miles out to sea. The anglers willing to take the long trip off the coast are being rewarded with some big yellowfin. A two-hundred and thirty pounder was brought in to the dock at Los Barriles and one boat lost an estimated three-hundred pounder when their one-hundred pound test snapped.

The dorado bite picked up all week. The females are small, in the 5-10 lb range, with bulls a bit bigger at 20 – 40 lbs. being landed on lures and squid.

The striped marlin and blue marlin fishing continues to be spectacular. The blue marlin are ranging from 100 – 150 lbs.  with the striped marlin coming in at around 80 – 100 lbs. The fish are taking lures and ballyhoo.

The wahoo are starting to make themselves scarce. The bite is slowing down, but some fish are still being brought in at around 20 – 40 lbs. They are taking lures.

After a stellar year for roosterfish, the gallos have finally  begun to disappear. There are still a few being caught and released in the 20 – 30 lb. range.

Hello East Cape Fishermen,

72 lb wahoo

This is the Los Barriles fishing report for Tuesday, July 30th to Monday, August 5th.

The weather smiled on Los Barriles this week. The water temp bumped up to eighty-four degrees and is crystal clear. The air-temps remained in the mid-80’s, which is not too hot for August. The winds remained calm.

The yellowfin tuna bite continued to drop all week. Some small tuna in the 10-30 lb range were landed on squid. Let’s hope those tuna seiners don’t come back for awhile.

There is good news dor mahi-mahi aficionados. The dorado bite picked up all week. The females were small, in the 5-10 lb range, with bulls a bit bigger at 20 – 40 lbs. being brought in on lures and squid.

2019 has been a good year for marlin and this week was no exception. Plenty of striped marlin in the 80 – 100lb. range were caught and released. Blue marlin, ranging from 200 – 250lbs. were being landed on lures and ballyhoo. El Suertudo took home $619,800 for landing a 381 lb. blue marlin in the East Cape Bisbee tournament.

The Wahoo Gold Cup is just over the horizon and there were good signs all week as the wahoo bite picked up. Wahoo in the 20 – 30 lb. range were being landed all week on lures. Let’s hope they stick around for the tournament.

The roosterfish bite is still on. Anglers are bringing in forty-five pounders on a regular basis. For all you fishermen who like a good fight-and-release,  get some ballyhoo and cast out from shore in Los Barriles.

Pargo and cabrilla are still being caught frequently.

Hello East Cape Fishermen,

Mike Vos Sr. with Striped Marlin

Mike Vos Sr. with Striped Marlin

This is the Los Barriles fishing report for Tuesday, July 23rd to Monday, July 29th.

The week started out slow due to high winds and cooling water temps. The water temp dropped down to the high-70’s and the weather remained in the mid-80’s. It turned around later in the week.

The yellowfin tuna bite dipped. This can be at least partially attributed to the tuna seiners wiping out the schools underneath the porpoise.  Smaller tuna were landed in the 10-20 lb range. They are biting on lures, sardines, and squid.

The dorado bite coninued to pick up all week. The dorado are in the small range and mostly being caught north of Cardonel. The Dorado Shootout was won with a 25lb. dorado. The winner took home $145,000 and a new truck.

The striped marlin bite continued it’s steady rise. Most of the fish are ranging from 80 – 100 lbs., but some are even bigger. They are being caught and released on lures. The blue marlin have recently shown their presence, with 100 -200 pounders being caught and released this week. This is all good news for the $1,000,000 East Cape Bisbee starting this week.

The wahoo bite slowed down. Hopefully it will pick up before the upcoming wahoo tournament.

The roosterfish bite is still hot. Anglers are bringing in forty-five pounders on a regular basis.

Pargo and cabrilla are still being caught frequently.

The weather did not cooperate with us this week in Los Barriles. Strong offshore winds brought in cooler green water and made fishing conditions less than ideal.  The water temp dropped down ot the high-70’s and the weather remained in the mid-80’s.

The yellowfin tuna bite slowed down a bit, probably due to the cooler water.  There were some tuna reeled in at about 30-40 lbs later in the week only two to three miles offshore, which is a good sign for the coming days. They are biting on squid.

The dorado bite dropped this week. Females were being caught in the 5-15 lb. range with bulls coming in at 20-40 lbs. The bigger dorado are outside, but the wind has made getting to them an issue. The Dorado Shootout is coming up, so hopefully things turn around soon.

The striped marlin bite continued to pick up all week. Most of them are ranging from 80 – 100 lbs., but some are even bigger. They are being caught and released on lures. There are still no blue marlin.

The wahoo bite fell off. We hope these guys come back soon.

The roosterfish bite has been good all year and continued to pick up all week. Roosters as large as 65lbs were being taken on lures, sardines and ballyhoo.

Pargo and cabrilla are still being pulled in regularly.

Let’s hope the weather turns around in the coming week. Anyone that knows the Baja knows that everything can change within two days.

The wind played a large factor in the fishing this week in Los Barriles. The north winds were up for three days, making things a bit rough for anglers. Weather temps remained comfortable in the low to mid-eighties. The water dropped a degree to 76.

The yellowfin tuna bite remains strong. The fish are out about forty-five miles, schooling with the dolphin. Although small, mostly in the 10 – 30 lb. range, they are numerous. Several boats returned this week with their limits met.

The striped marlin bite continues to pick up. More than a few hotel boats returned with their marlin flags flying.

There are still no wahoo.

Roosterfish and pompano action is hot off the beach in Los Barriles. The fish are chasing sardines and shore fishermen are having a field day.

Pargo and cabrilla are still being pulled in off of Isla Cerralvo. Bottom fishing may not be as exciting, but the fish sure taste good.

May 6th , 2019

 

Hello East Cape Fishermen,

This is the Los Barriles fishing report for Tuesday, April 30th to Monday, May 6th.

The high season in Los Barriles has finally begun. Area air-temps are up a bit since our last fish report. It’s comfortable in shorts in and around the low-eighties. The water has warmed up too. It’s 77 and blue.

The dorado are in and close to shore. They are small; in the 20-30 lb range. One large bull was caught this week at around 50 pounds. The fish are taking lures and ballyhoo.

The yellowfin tuna bite is on. They are schooling underneath the dolphins about 30 to 50 miles from shore. Los Barriles fishermen reeled in several nice size tuna from 15 to 40 lbs. this week. Some boats are hitting their limits.

A cousin of the tuna, the white bonita, are being caught to the north of Los Barriles at Isla Cerralvo. For those of you that don’t know, white bonita are so close in taste to the yellowfin tuna that they are often sold as yellowfin in stores. If you can’t make it to the tuna and are looking for good eats, you may want to head north to Cerralvo and make your sashimi with the white bonita.

The striped marlin bite is picking up this week. Their are only a few boats going out to get them, though.  The blue marlin bite is still off. We will see if the marlin bite gets stronger in the coming weeks.

Grouper and cabrilla are being pulled in off of Isla Cerralvo. White fish and a cold cerveza are good for the soul!

January 12th, 2019

 

Hello East Cape Fishermen,

This is the Los Barriles fishing report for Sunday, January 6th to  Saturday, January 12th.

We usually  reserve our fish report for the high season in Los Barriles, but we thought that we would give you an update on how things are going so far this winter.

The air temp in Los Barriles is pleasant, with average high temperatures ranging from the low to mid-seventies. The water has remained a bit on the warm side for this time of year. You can still wear a pair of trunks in the 75 degree clear Sea of Cortez without getting much of a chill.

The dorado are still in town, and anglers are reeling in 20-30 lb. bulls and 15-30lb. females. The fish are biting on ballyhoo.

The yellowfin tuna have headed to other waters, as normal for winter. The same goes for the wahoo.

Striped marlin are still being reeled in, with the largest weighing in at around 80 lbs. The sportfish are taking lures and ballyhoo. The blue marlin bite is off. We will see if that bite picks back up closer to spring.

2018 saw a big spike in roosterfish catches, but the slightly cooler waters of winter have driven off the tough fighting jacks. We will see if the high season of 2019 can compare with last year.

For all you aficianados of bottom fishing, you will be happy to know that there are plenty of delicious pargo still being caught.

That’s it for your special winter edition of the East Cape Baja fishing report for Saturday, January 12th!

East Cape Baja Fishing Report

Los Barriles, B.C.S.

October 15th, 2018

 

Hello East Cape Fishermen,

This is the Los Barriles fishing report for October 8th to October 15th.

The weather cooperated with us for most of the week with a high temperature of eighty-seven degrees and an average air-temp around eighty-five. This combination made for smooth-sailing amid the famed October conditions here in Los Barriles.

Early in the week, football-sized  yellowfin tuna were being reeled in about five miles off of La Ribera.  A slight drop in water temperature caused them to move elsewhere. The Maria Teresa caught wind that there were some 40 – 80 pounders being captured underneath a school of porpoise thirty miles away and made some nice catches on lures, sardines and squid.

After a very strong showing this season, the dorado bite finally has begun to dwindle. There were a few 15 – 30lb females and 20 – 30lb bulls being caught, but the size and numbers pale in comparison to previous weeks.

 

Similar to what’s happened with the dorado, the wahoo bite has finally slowed down. A few were reeled in this week at about 40 – 80 lbs., taking sardines and other live bait. It has been one of the best wahoo seasons we can remember. We’ll see if they return next week.

The striped and blue marlin are still abundant, with fish ranging from 100 – 250 lbs. They are being taken on lures and ballyhoo before being released back into the east cape.

After a season that has seen an abundance of large roosterfish, the bite has finally continued to slow. There are still a few being caught off the beach in front of Palmas de Cortes, taking sardines.

The pargo and grouper fishing continues to be great , as is usual for this time of year.

That’s it for your weekly East Cape Baja fishing report for Monday, October 15th!

East Cape Baja Fishing Report

Los Barriles, B.C.S.

September 3rd, 2018

 

Hello East Cape Fishermen,

This is the Los Barriles fishing report for August 28th – September 3rd.

As August comes to a close and September is upon us, we have not seen much change in the weather. Both hurricane Norman and hurricane John moved out towards Hawaii and the winds remained calm for most of the week, except for some strong winds in the afternoon. The air temp hung in there at around the mid-eighties with the water temperature up into the high eighties.

The dorado bite picked up all week, with females being caught in the fifty pound range and bulls in the 20 – 30lb weight class. Some bulls reached up into the 50 pound plus range. They were being reeled in north of Los Barriles near the shark buoys.

There are multitudes of football-sized yellowfin tuna being caught close to shore. The sardines are still in, which is good for the tuna fishing.

Wahoo were being caught in the same area as the tuna and dorado. The bite picked up all week. The fish were being brought in on lures and sardines.

The striped and blue marlin bite continues to be strong in the east cape. All week marlin were bring brought in between 100 – 250 lbs. The fish were taking lures and ballyhoo.

Don’t head to Los Barriles this week if you are on a roosterfish trip. The bite continued to die all week although there were a few of these strong-fighting fish brought in in the 35 – 65 lb range.

The pargo and grouper fishing continues to be great , as is usual for this time of year.

Please check your email attatchment for a special September promotion offered only to subscribers of the Maria Teresa Newsletter. Three full days of fishing for only $900. Call Mike Vos Jr. at 760-803-2825 or 928-554-1717 and book your charter.

Hello East Cape Fishermen,

This is the Los Barriles fishing report for August 13th – August 20th.

 

Maria Teresa Fishing Report. Los Barriles Fishing Report.

Maria Teresa Fishing Report. Los Barriles Fishing Report.

After an early start to the hurricane season, there was some speculation that this August might provide many days with conditions too rough to fish. Fortunately, that hasn’t been the case. This past week saw mostly calm winds with water temps in the high eighties and area temperatures in the low 90’s. In short, the weather for fishing in Los Barriles was good.

The dorado have returned after leaving town last week.  The fleet at Van Wormer Resorts were seeing bulls in the 20 – 30 lb range and females in the 15 – 30 lb weight class. Many of the females were below the minimum catch and release size, so they were let back out into the wild. The golden fish were taking lures, sardines and ballyhoo.

The yellowfin tuna bite picked up all week. The fish were being caught realtively near the shore, along with sailfish. The tuna were being landed at an average size of 20 – 30 lbs, with some larger fish in the 40-80lb range. The sardines are plentiful in the East Cape, and the tuna were taking sardines,  squid and lures.

Good news for the upcoming 2018 Wahoo Gold Cup Jackpot Tournament, which takes place on Saturday, August 25th. This week saw the wahoo bite continue to pick up with fish averaging in the 20 – 30 lb range. They were taking sardines amoung other things. We know there are bigger boys out there. If you have not entered the tournament yet, call Van Wormer Resorts. There may still be room for you to take home a VW Tiguan SUV!

The marlin are still showing up for all east cape fishermen. Striped marlin taking lures and ballyhoo were being brought in at the 80 – 100lb. range. Blue marlin, although still plentiful, were a bit smaller this week. The pelagic sportfish were being landed in the 200 – 250 lb. range.

The roosterfishing continues to be spotty. A few roosters were being caught in the 10 – 30 lb range on sardines.

The pargo and grouper fishing continues to be great , as is usual for this time of year.

Please check your email attatchment for a special September promotion offered only to subscribers of the Maria Teresa Newsletter. Three full days of fishing for only $900. Call Mike Vos Jr. at 760-803-2825 or 928-554-1717 and book your charter.

East Cape Baja Fishing Report

Los Barriles, B.C.S.

August 13th, 2018

 

Hello East Cape Fishermen,

This is the Los Barriles fishing report for August 6th – August 12th.

 

Hurricane John created a little bit of havoc in the East Cape this past week. The major hurricane caused swells and wind conditions that slowed down the fishing. The water temp moved into the high-eighties and the August air temps reached the mid-nineties.

The changing conditions impacted the dorado bite, slowing it down this week. There were a few bulls being brought in at 20 – 30 lbs. and females in the 5 – 15 lb range. They were taking lures and sardines. As the weather conditions normalize, we are hoping to see a return of the larger bulls next week.

The yellowfin tuna did not seem to mind the change in conditions, as the bite continued to be strong. Anglers were bringing in some fish in the 40 – 80lb. range, making for some good fighting and excellent sashimi. The tuna were biting on lures, sardines and calamari.

The wahoo stuck around through Hurricane John as well, which is good news for anglers signed up for the 2018 Wahoo Gold Cup Jackpot Tournament, which takes place on August 25th. Wahoo were being landed in the 20 – 40lb. class with some as large as 40 – 70 lbs. If you have not entered the tournament yet, call Van Wormer resorts. There may still be room for you to take home a VW Tiguan SUV!

The marlin bite continues to be good. Striped marlin in the 80 – 100lb. range were being landed on lures and ballyhoo. Blue marlin in the 300 – 600lb. range were being caught and released on the same bait.

The roosterfish bite continued to take a dip this week. There were some small fish, in the 10 – 20lb range, being brought in on sardines, but the roosterfishing is just not what it was in June and July.

The pargo, snapper and grouper fishing is excellent, as is usual for this time of year.

East Cape Baja Fishing Report

Los Barriles, B.C.S.

August 6th, 2018

 

Hello East Cape Fishermen,

This is the Los Barriles fishing report for July 31st – August 5th.

 

The wind remained relatively calm for most of the week with a few days of moderate south winds. The water and air temps hung in there around the mid-eighties.

The big story in the East Cape this week was the capture of a 580 lb. blue marlin by an angler competing in the prestigious Bisbee tournament out of Cabo San Lucas. In other marlin news, the striped marlin bite continued to slow as the blue marlin bite continued to pulse. The fleet out of Los Barriles was seeing fish in the 300 – 600 lb. range.

The yellowfin tuna continue to take up residence in the East Cape with many being brought in this week at 40 – 80 lbs. They are currently biting on sardines and calamari.

The wahoo are still here in droves, with many fishermen pulling in 20 – 40 pounders on lures.

After a long run thus far in the 2018 season,  the roosterfish bite has finally taken a dip. That doesn’t mean they won’t be back next week. There were still some in the 20 – 30 lb. range being brought in on sardines, but not as many as two weeks ago.

The pargo, snapper and grouper fishing is excellent, as is usual for this time of year.

That’s it for your weekly East Cape Baja fishing report for Monday, August 6th!

East Cape Baja Fishing Report

Los Barriles, B.C.S.

July 23rd, 2018

 

Hello East Cape Fishermen,

This is the Los Barriles fishing report for July 16th – July 23rd.

 

Congratulations to “Miller Time” for winning the Van Wormer Resorts 15th Annual Dorado Shootout on Saturday, July 21st. With 144 boats competing and over 550 people in the running, Jerry Pifer and his wife took home a new VW 4 X 4 Amarok on a superpanga with their 47.5 lb bull dorado. The second place team swept the side jackpots and took in over 125,000 dollars with their 40 lb bull dorado caught on a cruiser. Thanks to all who participated in this year’s tournament. It was a blast.

The weather conditions were favorable all week with the wind remaining mostly calm and the air and water temps in the mid-eighties. On some days, there was a slight breeze from the southeast, but nothing so strong as to spoil the fishing.

The big story this week in the world of yellowfin tuna was a cow being brought in at 182 lbs. It was hooked underneath a school of porpoise. The tuna bite continued to pick up all week with most of the fish being in the 20 – 30 lb. range and taking lures and sardines.

The wahoo are still in town, making for some exciting sportfishing and tasty steaks. Los Barriles anglers were bating the 20 – 40 pounders with lures and live bait.

After several weeks of moving up the curve, the striped marlin bite finally slowed down. It’s larger cousin, the blue marlin were still in, with the large pelagic fish being caught and released in the 200 – 250 lb. range. They were taking lures and ballyhoo.

Good news for all the fly-fishermen and near-shore enthusiasts. The roosterfish bite continued to be good this week. Although the size dropped a little into the 20 – 30lb. range, they are still creating an exciting sportfishing experience for anglers before we release them back into the wild.

The pargo, snapper and grouper fishing is excellent, as is usual for this time of year.

That’s it for your weekly East Cape Baja fishing report for Monday, July 23rd!

East Cape Fishing Report

Los Barriles, B.C.S.

July 2nd, 2018

 

Hello East Cape Fishermen,

This is the Los Barriles fishing report for June 25th – July 2nd.

 

The winds have remained mostly calm this week with the area temperatures in the mid-eighties and the water temperatures in the low-eighties.

The dorado continued to bite this week on lures, sardines and ballyhoo. Most were caught to the North of Los Barriles. The size decreased as the females being brought in were in the catch and release range of 5 – 15 lbs with the bulls being reeled in at 20 – 30 lbs.

It continues to be a good season for yellowfin tuna, and this week saw many fish reeled in at 20-30 lbs. and some as big as 40 – 80 lbs. They are biting on lures and sardines.

The wahoo have been a big story in the East Cape, as these sportfish are being brought back to the dock at Palmas Del Cortez weighing in between 40 – 70 lbs. They are biting on both lures and sardines.

The marlin bite continued to be steady this week with striped marlin being brought in at 80 – 100 lbs. and blue marlin in the 200 – 250 lb. range.

Right off the shoreline, anglers are catching roosterfish on sardines up into the 35 – 65 lb range.

The pargo, snapper and grouper fishing is excellent as usual for this time of year.

That’s it for your weekly East Cape Baja fish report for Monday, July 2nd!

East Cape Fishing Report

Los Barriles, B.C.S.

June 25th, 2018

 

Hola Pescadores,

This is the Los Barriles fishing report for June 18th – June 25th.

After Hurricane Bud brought us a scare last week, the weather has returned to relatively normal. The winds have been mostly calm with just a few days of light south winds. The air-temp is in the mid-eighties and the water has warmed up to the low-eighties.

The 2018 season continues to be a good year for the dorado, and this week saw bulls being brought in at 20 – 40 lbs and females in the 15 – 30 lb range. The fish were not picky, as they were being caught on lures, sardines and ballyhoo.

The yellowfin tuna bite picked up this week. There are still many tuna being caught in the 20 – 30 lb range, but some were being brought in at 40 – 80 lbs. Let’s hope those tuna seiners stay away, as they take away the larger tuna en masse and spoil the fun for everybody.

The wahoo are still biting on lures and sardines. They are in the 20 – 40 lb range.

The season continues to be very good for striped marlin. This week saw many of the fish being brought in at over 100 lbs.  They are being caught on lures and ballyhoo before being released back into the Sea of Cortez.

After a poor showing last week, the blue marlin bite picked up with 150 – 250 pounders being caught and released by the Los Barriles fleet.

The roosterfish are still abundant. The good news is, the big boys have finally started to arrive. After weeks of roosters being reeled in at a maximum weight of 30 lbs, this week finally saw some in the 35 – 65 lb weight class. Let’s keep catching and releasing these guys so they can grow into the large size that makes a tangle with a roosterfish so memorable.

The pargo, snapper and grouper fishing is excellent as usual for this time of year.

That’s it for your weekly East Cape Baja fish report for Monday, June 25th!

East Cape Fishing Report

Los Barriles, B.C.S.

June 18th, 2018

 

Hola Pescadores,

This is the Los Barriles fishing report for June 12th – June 18th.

Hurricane Bud brought some much needed rain into Los Barriles, but, obviously, was not great for the fishing. By the time it made landfall, it was only a tormenta, but it was still enough to force the team at Van Wormer Resorts to remover their fleet from the water for two days.

The word amongst the local fisherman was that they had not seen a hurricane form and hit the region in June since they could remember.

Bud brought some cool green water with it, but before and after it hit, the fishing remained good.

The dorado bite is still on, with bulls being brought in in the 20 – 40 lb range and even some at 50 plus lbs. Lures and ballyhoo were doing the trick this week. The females are still in the 15 – 30 lb range.

At about 30 miles out, 20 -30lb yellowfin tuna are being caught under schools of porpoise with lures and sardines. Their have been several tuna seiners reported in the area of late, their nets stealing all the larger tuna  from the sportfishermen.

The wahoo came back this week in the 20 – 40 lb range taking lures.

A not so usual catch in Los Barrilesswordfish, were being brought in in the 100 – 200 lb weight class, making for some stoked East Cape anglers.

The striped marlin bite keeps on coming with some fish being brought in at over 100 lbs. Anglers are reporting that they are taking both lures and ballyhoo.

The blue marlin bite continues to slow down.

The roosterfish are still plentiful. They are being reeled in with sardinas
 right in front of the Palmas de Cortez hotel in Los Barriles. Still no big guys, as they are averaging 20 – 30 lbs.

The pargo, snapper and grouper fishing is excellent as usual for this time of year.

That’s it for your weekly East Cape Baja fish report for Monday, June 18th!

East Cape Fishing Report

Los Barriles, B.C.S.

June 11th, 2018

Hola Pescadores,

This is the Los Barriles fishing report for June 4th – June 11th.

The air temperatures have remained pleasant in the mid-80’s while the water took a dip down to the low 70’s as a batch of green water came in. Fortunately,  this cool water only lasted a couple of days, as it scared off the fish and decreased the water visibility. The wind remained mostly calm for most of the week.

The dorado bite continues to surge, but this week saw a small decrease in the size of the bulls being brought in. The average size of these male dorado dropped down to the 20-30 lb range with the females still coming in at 15 – 30 lbs.  They are being brought in on lures, sardines and ballyhoo.

The yellowfin tuna had another stellar week. Although the Tuna Trollers..? are not helping out, their were still tuna being brought into the dock at Los Barriles ranging from 40 – 80 lbs biting on lures and sardines.

After a strong showing in the first week of June, the notoriously elusive wahoo decided to head somewhere else for the week.

The striped marlin bite keeps escalating with some fish being brought in at over 100 lbs. They have been reeled in on lures and ballyhoo.

The blue marlin have become a bit more scarce, but they are still large with fish coming in around the 300 – 600 lb range.

You can’t seem to go to any beach in Los Barriles without finding roosterfish. Put a sardine on your line and you very well might end up fighting a 30 pounder.

The pargo, snapper and grouper fishing is great.

That’s it for your weekly East Cape Baja fish report for Monday, June 11th!

Hola Pescadores,

June has arrived and brought with it some hotter weather and a return of the wahoo.

The air temps have been increasing up into the mid-nineties, making that daily dip into the Sea of Cortez that much more refreshing. The water temp has decreased a bit dropping from the mid- eighties to the low-70’s.

As we have seen in previous weeks, the dorado bite keeps on increasing. The  females are remaining in the 15 – 30 lb range, while the bulls keep on getting bigger and bigger with more than a few being landed at over 50 lbs. They are still loving those lures and sardines.

The yellowfin tuna had a good showing last week. they were multitudinous in number as well as larger than in previous weeks. Tuna in the 40 – 80 lb range were being brought into the dock at Los Barriles in larger numbers than we have seen all season. Lures and sardines seem to be their bait of choice.

After disappearing for a week, the wahoo decided to return. They have been catching them in the 20-40 lb range on lures and sardines.

 

The striped marlin continue to make their way into the East Cape for our anglers. They are mostly in the 80 – 100 lb range and taking lures, sardines and ballyhoo.

The blue marlin bite picked up this past week, and there were some landed in the 300 – 600 lb range.

The roosterfish continue to be showing up in Los Barriles and are now averaging in the 15- 30 lb range.

And again, let’s not forget the pargo, snapper and grouper. They are plentiful!

That’s it for your weekly East Cape Baja fish report for Monday, June 4th!

Hola Pescadores,

We are delighted to add another Los Barriles Fishing Report to our growing list. Our passion for fishing continues and the fish keep on showing up to fuel it.

First let’s talk about the weather. May has been a terrific month, with the air temps in Los Barriles starting at around the mid-70’s and moving up to the mid 80’s. The water temp has basically followed the same pattern. It’s excellent weather for fishing and June should prove to be the same.

This past week has seen even more dorado than last week. The bulls and the females, mostly hitting on lures and sardines, have been abundant. Size-wise, we are still seeing the females in the 15 – 30 lb range and the bulls ranging from 20 – 40 lbs.

There is exciting news for all you yellowfin tuna aficionados. The tuna numbers continue to increase and the sashimi is flowing. Most are coming in at the 20 – 30 lb. range, but we are starting to see some fishermen with sore muscles as the 40 – 80 pounders have decided to make an appearance. They are still being hooked with squid, lures and sardines.

The wahoo have taken a small vacation. In past weeks they have been plentiful, but the previous week has seen them virtually disappear.

The striped marlin are showing up in increasing numbers and size. Their are some being landed at over 100 pounds before they are released to grow bigger for next year’s catch. If you are going out from Los Barriles, put a lure or ballyhoo at the end of your line for the best luck.

Although the blue marlin bite slowed down a bit this past week, there were some landed in the 300 – 600 lb range.

The roosterfish keep on coming to Los Barriles and they have picked up in size and number over the past week. Finally, some larger roosters are being landed in the 20 – 30 lb class. As is normal for these exciting sportfish, they are only taking live bait; sardines.

And let’s not forget the pargo, snapper and grouper. They are plentiful!

The roosterfish keep on coming to Los Barriles and they have picked up in size and number over the past week. Finally, some larger roosters are being landed in the 20 – 30 lb class. As is normal for these exciting sportfish, they are only taking live bait; sardines.

And let’s not forget the pargo, snapper and grouper. They are plentiful!

That’s it for your weekly East Cape Baja fish report for Monday, May 28th!

Hola Amigos,

The Los Barriles Fishing Report continues to get better and better, as the fishing and weather keep on surpassing what was reported the week prior. The air temperature, as to be expected, has increased from the mid-70’s up into the mid 80’s. The water temp has remained basically the same at around 80 – 85 degrees.

The dorado bite is finally on, with some bulls being pulled in surpassing the 50 lb mark. Females have been in the 15 – 30 lb range, and both the bulls and the females have been mostly biting on Ballyhoo.

The yellowfin tuna bite continues to pick up in frequency and in weight, as we are now seeing some footballs being brought in at the 20 – 30 lb. range. They are taking squid, lures and sardines. Let’s hope to see some bigger tuna in the coming weeks.

The wahoo keep on coming, with a plethora of 20 – 40 pounders taking mainly lures. Seldom a day passes without the boats in the Los Barriles Fishing Fleet returning with wahoo flags raised.

The striped marlin bite has begun to pick up this week. We are seeing them in the 80 – 100 lb. range.

There is some real good news for you marlin afficionados. The blue marlin bite is finally starting up. We have seen a few big boys in the 200 – 250 lb. range biting on lures and ballyhoo.

Pound for pound one of the best fighting fish in the Sea of Cortez, the roosterfish, continue to increase in numbers. If they would only increase in size! They are averaging in the 10 – 20 lb range and are being caught on Sardinas.

Plenty of Pargo being brought in, too.

That’s it for your weekly East Cape Baja fish report for Monday, May 21st!

Hola Amigos,

The season is off and running down on the East Cape of Baja California Sur. It’s only April and we are seeing plenty of bait in the water and more important we have sardines. We haven’t had too many sardinas in the area the last few years, so this is a welcome site. Of course where there is bait there will be predators chasing them.

Water temps are reaching 70-75 right now, so the conditions are getting right for a host of species. This week, as you can see from the pictures, the fleet is on the tuna bite. Most of the tuna are down south of Los Frailes, which is about an hour and a half run from Los Barriles.

The tuna have been ranging from football up to 50 lbs., all feeding on sardinas. We are also seeing a few wahoo in the area, as well as pargo, cabrilla, roosterfish, and marlin. The winds have subsided and the weather is warming to a high in the low 80’s. The conditions are perfect, so if you haven’t made your plans to visit us, it time to get on the phone to book your next East Cape excursion! Hope to see you all soon in Los Barriles!

Guy with Wahoo. East Cape Fishing Report.

After tropical storm Lidia passed through the southern tip of the Baja peninsula, dumping 2½ feet of water on Cabo, things are starting to get back to normal. There is still a lot of work to be done in Los Cabos, as they were impacted much for than the East Cape.

The fishing this past week has been back up to the standards that we are use to in the East Cape. There are lots of tuna around right now, mostly in the football size range, but we are getting the occasional one over 100 pounds.

As you can see from the pictures, there is lots of laundry flying from all the boats, which is always a great sight to see. We are seeing many more dorado this year than we did this same time last year, which is also nice to see. We haven’t been seeing the size that we did during the Dorado Shoot Out, but we are seeing an increase in numbers.

The wahoo bite is still going pretty strong, with one or two caught nearly every day. The marlin bite is also strong right now with striped and blue marlin in the area keeping anglers busy.

Inshore, expect to see pargo androosterfish around the area, with this last week being very strong for pargo.

All in all, there’s a great bite right now. It’s an excellent time to be down for a mixed variety of species. Check out the pictures below from the past two week! Hope to see many of your down here in the upcoming weeks!

East Cape Fishing Report

Los Barriles, B.C.S. – July 28th, 2017

Just as it appeared that the fishing was taking a turn for the worst, today happened.The East Cape fishing has been good for for the last few weeks, but reports for the boats the last few days were that it was slowing down, and each day was yielding a little less than the day before. Then, in true East Cape fashion, the fishing erupted on Friday!

The East Cape can turn on a dime. It can be slow for three straight days and then out of nowhere it explodes. Today was one of those epic East Cape days where it all came together for a great day of fishing. Almost every boat in the Los Barriles fleet landed wahoo, which is not a common occurence.

Not too far from the wahoo bite the Los Barriles fleet hit a school for nice size tuna that yielded the 50 pound class with a few a little bigger, but there were hardly any small guys landed.
Along with a very strong blue marlin and striped marlin bite, roosters and a few dorado, the East Cape has turned back on, and today was very wide open!

Hope to see you in Los Barriles soon!

East Cape Fishing Report

June 15th, 2017

It’s been a pretty good start to June down here on the East Cape. The best news in Los Barriles has been the return of the dorado. We are starting to see some decent size dorado in the thirty to fifty pound class. This is the first time in three years that we have seen a consistent run of dorado of that size, and it is a welcome sight.

The wahoo bite continues to be off the charts. This is the third straight year that we have seen record numbers of wahoo on the East Cape.

The tuna bite has also been pretty consistent with some days being better than others, but there have been tuna caught almost daily.

The biggest one was one hundred and eighty pounds, but most have been in the football to fifty pound class.

The roosterfish have been around and we have seen up and down bites on the gallos, but we have seen some nice size to them as well.

The marlin bite has been a little slow for our liking, but this is a good sign for late summer and fall marlin fishing. We should see a big increase in marlin as the summer progresses. We have seen a few striped marlin so far, but not the big run of blue marlin that we saw the last two years. We expect to see that start next month if last year’s pattern continues.

All in all, the east cape fishing has been very good. We are off to a much better start when compared to this time last year. With the return of the bigger dorado and the wahoo bite off and running, this is a great time to be down here. Did I mention the weather has been perfect, with highs in the upper eighties and lows in the mid-seventies? Water temps have been between seventy-eight and eighty-five.

I wanted to give a special shout out to my friend Jack Richardson who was this year’s tournament director for the annual Fathers, Sons & Buddies group. They are a great bunch of guys that know how to have fun. We always enjoy having them down here.

I’d also like to thank the Tournament Anglers Association and the International roosterfish Tournament for their generous donations to the catch and release program. All three group logos will be placed on next year’s t-shirts as proud sponsors. Hope to see you down here soon!
