Default East Cape - All in!

It has been another outstanding weather week. For the last 2 days we have had a few sporadic lightning storms with some scattered showers. Humidity has spiked and now it is feeling very tropical. None of the rain or lightning has been wind related and the Sea of Cortez has continued to be calm with surface water temps holding been 78 -79 degrees.

The bite continues to be inconsistent but is showing some signs of improvement. This week marlin, dorado, wahoo and tuna were all on our score card.

Lack of surface action has been odd. On any given day we normally do as much hunting as fishing looking for tailing billfish or sighting dorado, wahoo, feeding tuna and bird action. Right now there is almost none of that and most bites have just been blind strikes. Tuna are coming drifting chuck bait and not boiling or breaking the surface. Most effective on wahoo has been slow trolling live bait. It has just been a slow pick. Having lots of patience has been key. We have just been working hard pounding the water and shaking them out.

Sashimi time!
