Well the weather is still acting up but we're getting
sproadic days of excellent weather and sea conditions. The best news, however,
is that the larger Jurel (Yellowtail) are abundant if you have live bait.
Boats are going out early just off the lighthouse at the entrance to the harbor
or off Punta Chivato to pick up mackrel or "Big Eye's" for bait.
the bait is aboard, the boats are heading northwest of the northern island of
Santa Inez (look for other boats around "structure") in about 70 to 160 feet of
water. Another hot spot is south of Punta Concepcion off "The Mine", in
75 to 200 feet of water. Both spots are yielding 'tails in the 30's (30
to 40 lbs.). Yo-yoing also works if you can't locate the bait.
of the guys are trolling MirroLures with some success but the bait guys are the
ones bringing home the bacon. One of the local guides told me that his party
had to quit because they were too tired! Score: 7 'tails, all over 30 lbs.!!!
are always available as are Triggerfish and we're still catching a few
Baracuda ("slimers") ... but not intentionally!!!
about it. Come on down. If the weather cooperates, you'll go home
with a full ice chest and some very tired muscles!
