Fishing Report

The summer SE trade-winds has been consistent. It does look like we might start getting some cool dry westerlies again. Hopefully the large waves have broken off some good seaweed that the west winds will blow our way full of Dorado. Only time will tell.

I haven’t heard too much since the weekend, but a decent billfish bite was going on. The wind started to kick up Thursday where we found a few fish on the end of the Reef, and some friends found a better bite around the Horseshoe. Friday we left with about a dozen Veterans on five large boats in seas that could have reached 8′. These guys have had an uncanny knack for scheduling the roughest days for years now. Magnum was the top boat with about six billfish releases, some Dorado, and a couple sharks. Besides the typical ‘singing’ to the sea, the guys had a good time and they still probably walked away heavier. Many people helped promote a great event, including Shots, the Captains Club, and Bonafacio’s restaurants.

The Dorado Derby had a great turnout with an exciting start. We were a half-minute late, but that doesn’t matter when you are on a boat that does 76 mph. Captain Pilo expertly threaded the wakes and we were even able to run 40+ in 4′ seas. We overshot a little bit, but came back and found tons of Dorado in the center. Unfortunately, they were all cookie-cutter and I don’t think that we had a winning weight. El Zancudo took first and forth with a 24 pound bull leading the pack.

There are lots of billfish out there. I believe that we may find them in close again. The seas look to be calming down. My favorite plant is starting to bloom, so summer is almost here. Check out the great blooms in the desert. Some plants are having a second bloom with the humidity. The currents are starting to flow. We did have a tuna on. I think that the best fishing is still on the way!
