Default East Cape - Over matched

We started this season with a sputter but East Cape fishing is finally off to the races. It is time for all the cyber fishermen to push away from their computers and get down here. It is happening!

After a few days of wind last week we are back to calm seas and very comfortable weather. Schools of porpoise have arrived from 20 to 40 miles offshore holding tuna. There are a lot of small fish that some days are a bit finicky but there are a few cows mixed in as well. We are seeing huge schools of flying fish and also metering spots of squid. The stage is set for the bite to just keep getting better.

Several boats have sighted swordfish and some of the fish have been aggressive and ready to bite. Rude Girl bagged 2 in one day. El Regalo spotted 4 in one day, got 2 to go and boated one. We had one chasing the bait but the fish got bill wrapped and that was that.

On the inside striped marlin are on the prowl. We were terrorized by a huge blue marlin I'd call a Bisbee contender but couldn't get the hook to stick. When it came up and shook off the lure it's bill looked as thick as a baseball bat. Wahoo, roosterfish and pargo are also providing action for anglers fishing the shoreline.

Accurate's BX600 won't be over matched. Jerry Rootlieb landed this 220 lbs cow on the little reel that packs a punch.

Wahoo have been bending rods

It doesn't get any better than this!

Well, maybe it does
