Default East Cape - Spooky calm

East Cape - Spooky calm
October is just a couple days away and I can feel our 2016 season slipping away. Hurricane season doesn't officially end until November 30th but my feeling is we are already out of the woods. The stifling humidity of summer has subsided and the water temperature in the Sea of Cortez is stable at 85 degrees.

For the entire season there have been very few bumps in the road. Fishing conditions have been excellent, there has been very little wind and the sea has been like a pond. It is eerie to not hear the surf pound once in a while but day after day the weather has been spooky calm.

Fishing continues to be outstanding. We are experiencing one of the those times that species can almost be ordered off the menu. Blue marlin continue to rock. Striped marlin and sailfish are also providing action. Wahoo and yellowfin tuna continue to cooperate. Bottom fishing for red snapper and amberjack has been productive. Bubba sized roosterfish have been rewarding anglers putting in the time but the most exciting news is the return of dorado. Yes, after disappearing for almost 2 years dorado are back in the count. While the majority are small there are a few of the larger models starting to show.

Dorado back in the count

Yes, they are back!


Don't be fooled by the size of Accurate's Valiant 300. It packs a punch.

Valiant 300 does it again


Spotted this water spout offshore. It was a very local event and didn't bring rough seas. Strange thing is a dorado fell out of the sky in San Antonio several miles from the water. Maybe this is where it came from?

It was strange to be swarmed by bees that landed on our navigation light. They were not aggressive and caused no harm.

Another strange phenomenon. Found this tarantula walking down the beach at the waters edge.
