Baja Mexico - Cabo San Lucas, Magdalena Bay

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Inshore - This time of year we see a lot of action early in the mornings as well as the low light hours in the evenings. People tend to over look these time periods. If you want some great action get up and on the water early or fish a little later in the day as those "magic" hours can be great.

Offshore - have a few different rods ready from 8wt. to 12/14wt as you never know what you might encounter as far as species and size of fish. It never fails you will be running to a destination and you run into feeding fish on your way. You need to be ready for anything before you leave the dock.

Seven-day forecast 

We will continue to have good fishing on the Pacific side with decent early morning action in the East Cape depending on the wind.

Conditions 

Hello everyone,

This past week we have seen some pretty good fishing on the Pacific side out of Cabo San Lucas. We have had a little bit of wind on some days but overall the sea conditions have been great. We have been seeing good numbers of roosterfish along with some jacks. The Sierra bite is starting to wind down as the water is warming slightly but when you find the schools they have been responsive. We continue to see a strong marlin bite out of Cabo San Lucas. This marlin action has been very steady the past couple of weeks. It shows no signs of slowing down so it should be another good week for marlin on the fly.

Over in the East Cape the wind has reared its ugly head once again. It has been blowing hard from the North most of the week. It is forecast to settle down over the next couple of days. Once it does we will be able to get back out there and see what's happening. Before the wind we had good action close to shore for dorado and a few rooster fish. We also were seeing great action for big skip jack tuna and some yellowfin tuna. The Marlin bite in the East Cape was steady but after this wind we will need to see if it's still on.

Looking ahead the wind here in the East Cape will be a factor on fishing this week. As I mentioned it is forecast to settle down in a couple days but this time of year that can change. We will just have to wait and see.

On the Pacific side we should continue to see very good fishing. I will be fishing out of Cabo for a week or so starting tomorrow. I will be sure to report how the action is.

Until next time get out and go fishing.
