Default East Cape - Inshore, off shore everywhere

East Cape - Inshore, off shore everywhere
For more than a week now East Cape weather has been nothing short of spectacular. We have been enjoying warm sunny days with temperatures in the mid to high 70's sometime pushing 80 degrees. The Sea of Cortez has been like a pond with hardly a breeze. The water is blue and clear. On our mooring we can literally see a dime in 40 feet. The forecast has no harsh weather in sight and we are soaking it up.

Water temperature has been very unstable ranging from 73 to 78 degrees. Typically, our sea temp gauge is very stable and changes gradually. Yesterday while trolling I watched the reading bounce around like a ping pong ball.

Somehow this clear blue warmer than normal condition is having a negative impact on the bite. For anglers that are flexible, on most any given day we can find a lot of action someplace but right now inshore offshore and everywhere it is just a slow pick. We are working hard pounding the sea waiting for our few opportunities. While waiting with anticipation the side show has kept it exciting with sightings of whales, porpoise, mantas, sea lions, turtles and pelagic bird life.

More and more bait starting to puddle up on high spots so hopefully game fish will start to show in bigger numbers.

Just a heads up for those enjoying the beaches and swimming in the sea. Every spring for a short period of time stingrays move up into the shallows. They are not aggressive but if accidentally stepped on they will swing around and sting with their tail. The sting is very painful. It will drop you to your knees and make you cry. If stung the best remedy is applying hot hot water. A good practice when walking into the water is to shuffle sand out in front of you. The sand will alert the ray and it will leave.
