Default East Cape - Sea temp drops, bite stops

Our East Cape season was progressing nicely with picture perfect weather and the bite starting to turn on. Wahoo and dorado were being caught in bigger numbers. Mostly smaller grade tuna were also starting to show off shore. There were a few larger fish in the mix.

Living in a tropical environment and working on the ocean we always carefully monitor weather forecasting. It has become a ritual for me. So, early this week out of the blue the forecast indicates 20+ knot winds and small craft advisories for the next four days. My first thought was to not believe it but that turned out to be wishful thinking. In the middle of the night the surf start to pound and it was evident the forecast was correct. In the morning just as predicted here it came.

While it stayed relatively calm on the inside, offshore became un-fishable. The first day of wind caused sea temp to drop 4 degrees from 81 to 77 and shut off the bite. The inshore temperature in Palmas Bay has now stabilized at the 77 degree mark and inshore things have picked back up for wahoo, roosterfish and snapper.

Further to south of Pulmo there has been a more dramatic effect with the water turning ugly green and dropping to 71 degrees. South of Frailes where the largest volume of wahoo and dorado were being landed has now completely shut off.

I am on the beach today but anxious to get back out now that the weather has straightened out.

Dan Vincent bagged this 106 pound tuna using the kite.

Weather has calmed and we are going looking for more of this.
