Our fishing continued at a good pace after last week’s abrupt turnaround. Billfish action was only a few miles from the hotel. Our guys found ’em north at Punta Pescadero around the first line of shark buoys and only two miles from shore. The trick was to catch some of the bonito that gathered beneath the buoys, then immediately slow troll them, which attracted everything including blue and striped marlin, sailfish and dorado.
Meanwhile, the tuna action that has been so good most of the summer has moved further down the coast to the Gordo Banks in front of San Jose del Cabo.
Inshore action with light pressure is producing excellent catches of both roosterfish and jacks.
Last Sunday, our friends from Animal Lovers of Mexico Association held their annual sportfishing tournament that produced nearly 20 billfish and more dorado for the 10 local boats that participated in the event. Money raised goes for abandoned pets throughout East Cape.
Totals for this week:

1 Blue Marlin about 350-pounds R
1 Striped Marlin R
2 Sailfish R
