Daily Fishing Report:

We are so happy to report that the fishing has been better since my last report. The water is little more warmer, and we’ve had some action days.


We’ve been finding tuna in both sides, Sea of Cortez by La Ballena around 25 miles out , and on the Pacific side by San Jaime Bank around 35 miles out. Some days have been better than others but overall the tuna fishing has been consistently good over the past few months and it will continue to be good all summer.

Most fish are weighing between 20 and 45 pounds. We’ve been most successful with the kite but chumming is also working well. Most boats are getting between 4-8 strikes per day.

Striped Marlin

The marlin fishing has also improved since my last report. We’re finding striped marlin in various spots but we’ve had the most luck 10-15 miles around the lighthouse. We’ve had the most success trolling live but bait and casting live bait when we see them on the surface. The marlin fishing conditions will continue to get better and better for the next few months, and I expect we will start seeing black marlin very soon.

Dorado and Wahoo

We were also starting to see a few dorados and some wahoos. Most boats are getting 1 some days in a different spots. Most are weighing between 10-20 pounds but we’ve also found a few big bull wahoo in deeper water, and we’ve had the most luck with lures, and live bait.

Inshore Fishing

Apart from the good and improving offshore conditions there has also been some really good inshore fishing. There’s a few red snapper, rooster fish, jacks, and mackerel. So if you’re not wanting to try your luck offshore, you can definitely have some fun within the bay or just off the point.


The fishing conditions have definitely improved considerably over the past month. The water is warmer,  and there is a lot more bait in the area. The fishing is a little above average for this time of year, we’re having a lot of fun out there, and I expect things to keep getting better over the next few months.
