Hard to believe we could top yesterdays 46 jumbo Wahoo day. Today looked like it might be a bit slower, but sure enough the lucky and quit skillful Captain Rose pulled through again. We caught Wahoo into the dark and ended up with 31 absolute beauties. To top it off we found a huge school of 15-25 pound Dorado and the mayhem and madness continued for several hours until limits were had by all! WOW! What a day! The weather is still perfect, so is the food! Thanks for checking in, enjoy the photos! Happy Halloween!

An excellent fishing report from Puerto Morelos for this past week that reflected a mixed-bag catch of a 16 specie variety. There were a total of 32 days fished that reflected 8 dorado, 24 giant barracuda, 5 blackfin tuna, 2 needle fish, 105 bonito, 1 king mackerel, 1 shark, 1 jack crevalle, 1 Spanish mackerel, 2 porgy, 2 triggerfish, 13 chac-chi, 23 snappers, 65 banana fish, 1 soap fish and 19 grouper. Every day offered a wide variety catch and would depend on the angling groups choices while aboard the sportfishers.
PM Climate: Early week was mostly cloudy with scattered showers, mid week was sunny and end of the week was back to partly cloudy days with a chance for more showers. Air temps from 69 nights to 83 daytime highs with a 70% humidity factor.
Sea Conditions: Sea temps were stable at 80-81 degrees throughout the area.
Best Bait: The seemingly always available ballyhoo continue to be the bait of choice for all of the crews and anglers.
Bait Availability: Always available for the fishing crews and anglers.
According to Captain Temo Verboonen, the fishing is excellent but the anglers are almost non-existent and very few boats got out during the past week. However, those that did had good catches, both inshore and offshore as the weather and seas have calmed and become very fishable. The sailfish and dorado action is offering plenty of strikes on the fresh rigged baits and artificials and live bait, too.
IZ Climate: Early week was mostly sunny and warm days and the week's end turned to a few passing clouds with a sunshine mix. Air temps ranged from 72 nights to 88 daytime highs and a 66% humidity level.
Sea Conditions: An excellent fishing week with temps stable at 83-84 degrees all over the area and surface breezes from calm to 9 mph flowing in from the southwest.
Best Fishing Areas: Very good sailfish bite just 8 miles outside the Bay and the dorado still holding under the debris and along the current line. Good roosterfish bite off Valentin Point for the inshore anglers.
Best Bait/Lure: Rigged baits working well for the sailfish and dorado. Dorado also taking a variety of artificials and eager on live bait, too. Roosterfish good on the live baits and poppers.
Bait Supply: Very good supply of fresh baits for rigging and live bait at $5.00 per dozen.
While it wasn't a bonanza fishing week from the Marina El Cid, there was sufficient catching action to keep the anglers happy and most of the crews fairly busy. Even better, we had the first reports of blue marlin this past week with the first of the year being taken aboard the "Aries III" on October 22, 2014 and followed by another taken aboard the "Aries I" on October 23, 2014. They weren't big fish as blue marlin go, but being the very first for the season, they had kept both blues. The overall fish counts for a total of 21 days fished reflected 2 blue marlin, (under 250 lbs.) 14 sailfish, (5 released) 6 dorado and 26 yellowfin tuna for the offshore fishing and 1 sailfish and 2 dorado reported for 4 inshore super panga fishing days.
Mazatlan Climate: Overall, it was an excellent fair-weather week that provided wonderful, sunny and clear sky conditions all week with temps that ranged from 71 nights to 87 daytime highs and a humidity level at 55%
Sea Conditions: Surface breezes flowing in mostly from the westerly directions that ranged from fairly calm to 12 mph. Water temps remained stable at 83-84 degrees throughout the area.
Best Bait/Lure: Rigged baits worked very well on most of the billfish and dorado and the tuna were mostly school fish that wanted to bite the tuna feathers, cedar plugs and Rapala Magnum type lures.
Best Fishing Area: Remained out to the southwest of the Marina El Cid with the better action at 20-25 miles. Bait Supply: Remained readily available with a good supply of fresh baits for rigging and live bait at $1.00 per bait.
The billfish bite continues at a billfish per boat day fished on the average but some of the better bite boats had multiple billfish releases through the week along with rounding out their catches with a few dorado, yellowfin tuna and even a wahoo in the mix. We also had our first black marlin of the season show up in the count, taken aboard the "Gaviota I", that checked in under 250 lbs. The overall fish counts for a total of 25 combined fishing days reflected 3 blue marlin, 1 black marlin, 3 sailfish, (released) 18 stripers, (17 released) 20 dorado, 1 wahoo and 11 yellowfin tuna, (school sized fish).
Cabo Climate: A mostly sunny & warm week with near picture perfect weather that ranged from 71 nights to 91 daytime highs and a 55% humidity ratio.
Sea Conditions: As good as the weather! A mostly calm week with light surface breezes that ranged from calm to 10 mph and flowing in from the southeasterly directions. The Pacific side, from the Finger Bank to the Golden Gate Bank, down across the Jaime Bank and in to the beach at Cristobal Ridge, the temps were stable at 80-81 degrees. From the Cristobal Ridge to Cabo San Lucas, around the corner and up to Los Frailes, temps rose to 83-84 degrees.
Best Fishing Area: The Pacific side was best and the specific hot-spots were the Herradura and the Jaime Bank areas.
Best Bait/Lure: Artificials for the blue/black marlin, live bait for the stripers and sailfish. Artificials, rigged baits, live baits for the dorado a few stripers. Feathers and cedar plugs for the yellowfin tuna.
Live Bait Supply: Good supply of live bait at the $3.00 per bait rate.
Today we spent the day traveling and fishing our way up the coast. The morning started out fishing for yellowtail and we scratched a few fish on the yoyo, but it was not easy fishing so we traveled further north and finished our day off in the kelp trying for kelp bass. Tomorrow we plan on trying for dorado and will finish the trip offshore. Wish us well.. Intrepid crew.
Again today we had lots of chances at quality yellowfin tuna. Some of them did work out , and some did not, but that's fishing. We had action on fish from 100 to 170 lbs. and a few bigguns that won their freedom. Not quite the sign we had yesterday, but we have no complaints on the day, as the weather and good fortune down here is hard to beat. We are on the move up all the time, sea ya all later, Jeff
Hello anglers, Today we fished offshore. It wasn't quite what we were hoping for though. We found plenty of kelps just not the right one. We did end up with a couple of nice wahoo. We will be looking at a new area tomorrow. Wish us luck.
