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 

Hi folks,

We are seeing some decent early morning fishing here on the East Cape side when the wind is not blowing. This time of year here on the Sea of Cortez is the windy season. We have had a few calm days mixed in with wind this past week. On the calm days the fishing for Sierra form dawn until about 9am has been good. We also have a few small roosters in the area as well.

Offshore on the calm days we are seeing a decent bite for stripe marlin with a few dorado mixed in. We also have had some good schools of skip jack tuna but again you need a clam day to find them.

Over on the Pacific side out of Cabo we have had great inshore action for roosters, jacks, Sierra, and snapper. This action will fish well for the next few weeks.

Offshore in Cabo there is good action for marlin with a few dorado mixed in. The dorado fishing has been better in the morning with better marlin action in the afternoon.

Week of February 1st 2018

Hi everyone,

Currently here in the East Cape we are in the windy season. With that said on the non windy days we do have a little going on. If you are up early and the wind is down we have had good action from the beach for Sierra. This bite has been starting around dawn and ending around 9am.

We are also seeing good numbers on small roosters along the beach on the calm days. These fish are not big. They are averaging between 1 and 3 pounds but they sure are fun.

We have not seen any jacks yet but they should start to show soon as we have good bait along the beaches currently.

Offshore here in the East Cape we are seeing a good marlin bite for this time of year. The marlin have been on the bank just off La Ribera. We also have a few dorado in the area and the occasional tuna. A few yellowtail are starting to show as well. Again it all depends on the wind here in the East Cape this time of year.

I have been guiding a lot lately on the Pacific side out of Cabo San Lucas. Over there we have had very good inshore fishing for jack's, roosters, snapper, and Sierra. This is a great time to be fishing inshore on the pacific side.

Off shore out of Cabo we have been doing well on stripe marlin with fair action for dorado. The bite for dorado has been early while the marlin have been more active for us fly anglers in the afternoon.

This year has started off with some great fishing. Currently the conditions are favorable for some great action over the next few weeks. Stay tuned for the latest news as we will be fishing the next few days and we will be sure to report the latest conditions. If you are in the area or going to be in the area or just want to escape winter for a few days give us a call. We would love to help you.

Tight lines,

Jeff
