East Cape, intermission is over by Mark Rayor (10/22/2013)
[East Cape,BJ] Now the popular tournaments have passed, the crowds have exited and the intermission the game fish have taken is over. Sailfish and dorado have taken center stage off shore providing anglers continuous action. Wahoo have also been a great surprise for many.
Yellowfin Tuna Action, Though Shortage of Bait by Eric Brictson (10/18/2013)
[San Jose del Cabo,BJ] The most consistent fishing action recently was found from the Iman to San Luis Bank. This is where sportfishing fleets from all directions are congregating, dicing and chumming with fresh cut squid, while drift fishing with strips of the same bait on light tackle,
East Cape, couldn't buy a bite by Mark Rayor (10/17/2013)
[East Cape,BJ] Our fishing conditions are very strange right now. The Sea of Cortez is 85 degrees. The water is blue and clear with bait puddling everywhere. The game fish are here, we can see them. Marlin and sailfsih tailing, dorado and wahoo are swimming in plain sight. They are just very lethargic and not agressive when baits are presented. I have no explanation except that it is fishing and they just don't bite all the time.
Taking care of business, oh yeah! by Mark Rayor (8/21/2013)
[East Cape,BJ] A strategy that is working well is planing longer days. We just camp out on the fish and wait for the other boats to leave. Without fail as soon as the others drive away the fish pop. Spending a couple of extra hours and working over time is paying off.
In the dark of the moon by Mark Rayor (8/13/2013)
[East Cape,BJ] It is a little odd that coming off the dark of the moon game fish don't want to go. It kind of shoots down the full moon theory as the last 2 full moons have been full speed fishing. I believe it is because there is so much squid in the water. If you ate Snickers bars all day you might not want lunch.
A non-event by Mark Rayor (7/08/2013)
[East Cape,BJ] Hurricane Cosme that skirted us 2 weeks ago did turn the water in shore upside down and made it cold and ugly green. There is a hard break at about 20 miles and game fish are piled up out there just waiting to put anglers to the test. Marlin, dorado, tuna and an occasional wahoo are all on the menu.
Moon is bright, fish wana bite. by Mark Rayor (6/24/2013)
[East Cape,BJ] Now yellowfin tuna have arrived on the scene as well. Several schools of spotted dolphin have moved in all holding tuna. Most of the tuna are pee wee size but hit the right school and there are some bruisers Yesterday a 176 pounder was brought to the scale. A few good grade wahoo are also mixed in feasting on football tuna.
Epic Roosterfish Action by Eric Brictson (6/16/2013)
[San Jose del Cabo,BJ] Roosterfish in the 30 to 70 pound class reported every day. The roosters were striking on caballito and moonfish, slowly trolled along the beach stretches, just outside the breaker zone. With practically the entire fleet now targeting this bite, it will be interesting to see how long this fishery can remain productive, heavy boat pressure seems to result in negative impact.
Missing in action by Mark Rayor (6/05/2013)
[East Cape,BJ] It has been an outstanding week with sailfish, striped marlin, dorado and wahoo providing an incredible amount of action. A huge volume of gamefish are spread out off shore over most of East Cape's waters. Boats can head out off shore in almost any direction and find fish. The key is finding bottle nose porpoise and storm petrols working. Find the birds and the porpoise and the fish are sure to be close by.
One picture is worth a thousand words by Mark Rayor (5/29/2013)
[East Cape,BJ] The East Cape has lit up! It is report time and I'm out of words. Just going to let TODAYS photos do the talking.
Any which way but loose by Mark Rayor (5/21/2013)
[East Cape,BJ] Conditions couldn't be nicer with warm sunny days, calm seas and tidy bowl blue water pushing 80 degrees. The sea is alive with huge spots of bait, turtles and manta rays. Striped marlin dorado and wahoo are all on the prowl. The only fish noticeably missing for this time of year is yellowfin tuna. They showed up late last year and it looks like this is going to be another late appearance.
Yellowtail, Wahoo, Marlin aand Roosterfish all Bite by Eric Brictson (5/05/2013)
[San Jose del Cabo,BJ] Anglers found that rapidly changing conditions was causing the action to change from day to day. There had been the great yellowtail bite throughout the area, especially for the larger fish on the Gordo Banks,then water temps warmed up last week and this bite came to a standstill. To take up the slack the wahoo went on a good bite on the grounds north of Punta Gorda
It was a mixed bag by Mark Rayor (4/23/2013)
[East Cape,BJ] A few boats in the area off Punta Pescadero had double and triple hookups on marlin in the late afternoon as the fish charged the jigs.
Up and Down Conditions Scattered Action by Eric Brictson (4/14/2013)
[San Jose del Cabo,BJ] The great striped marlin action slowed down to just a few fish here and there, some feeding marlin were found off of the La Laguna and Punta Gorda area,
Hello sista by Mark Rayor (4/14/2013)
[East Cape,BJ] We ran across the largest pod of orcas I have ever encountered. It was the first time I have ever seen 3 males in one group. Strange? We didn't see any sea lions that day
Every dog has their day by Mark Rayor (4/07/2013)
[East Cape,BJ] This week I'm finding it hard to gather my thoughts to write a report. Trying to keep it positive I can say the weather has been gorgeous. Comfortable temperatures and dead flat seas. There has also been hoards of sea life. Humpback whales are near shore in Palmas Bay and putting on a show for anybody who cares to watch. This week we also sighted huge schools of porpoise and many sea turtles. That was the good news.
Moon is bright by Mark Rayor (3/30/2013)
[East Cape,BJ] The good news is the fish from the south are moving this way. Yesterday we ran down south and ended up meeting boats from Cabo San Lucas in the middle. By the end of the day we had chased marlin all the way back to Los Frailes. I just hope they stay hungry.
It was a shake down by Mark Rayor (3/21/2013)
[East Cape,BJ] With limits we decided to just meter around and make bait for the following day. The bait always seemed to be ganged up just a few hundred yards away from the grouped up pangas. Making bait was easy except that the yellowtail kept hitting the bait we had just hooked on our sabikis. We tore up several bait rigs and lost a few sinkers but soon our tank was plugged.
Warming Weather Helps Improve Bite by Eric Brictson (3/17/2013)
[San Jose del Cabo,BJ] Charters launching from Cabo San Lucas Marina are finding large numbers of yellowfin tuna in the 15 to 20 pound range on the Pacific side near the San Jaime Banks, los of porpoise activity in this same area.
Gooood Morrrning Sea of Cortez! by Mark Rayor (3/14/2013)
[East Cape,BJ] Just a bit further off shore tailing striped marlin are being sighted in packs from south of Los Frailes to north of Pescadero. I also received a report that a friend of ours fished the Pacific side from Cabo yesterday and limited on Yellowfin tuna.
Sierra, Dorado and Bottom Action Found by Eric Brictson (2/23/2013)
[San Jose del Cabo,BJ] Dorado have been harder to find in recent days, often being found later on when the sun warms the ocean surface some, no big schools, just a few fish here or there, average sizes ranged from 5 to 15 lb.
Good karma by Mark Rayor (2/17/2013)
[East Cape,BJ] Last week we finally finished winter maintenance on the Jen Wren boats. Hot to trot I have been waiting for calm weather to launch Jen Wren III and get in on the yellowtail bite. Licking my chops getting ready to launch I discovered a hummingbird nesting under the bow pulpit of the boat.
Sierra and Dorado found Cose to Shore by Eric Brictson (1/20/2013)
[San Jose del Cabo,BJ] Slow trolling baits produced roosterfish, most of them juvenile sized, with an occasional fish to 20 pounds reported. Dorado were still found, those numbers dropped off with the cooling waters, small schools were encountered, sizes averaged 5 to 20 pounds.
Cabo Bite Report by George Landrum (1/14/2013)
[Cabo San Lucas,BJ] Cooling water has slowed the bite for our warm water species, but the cool water fish are making a showing!
Cabo Bite Report by George Landrum (1/07/2013)
[Cabo San Lucas,BJ] Striped Marlin are on the bite! Toss in plenty of Dorado and we have constant action!
East Cape-Pumped up by Mark Rayor (1/01/2013)
[East Cape,BJ] We have been hard at Jen Wren maintenance but I have gotten fishing reports that the bite is outstanding on the odd day when boats can get out. Dorado, marlin and sailfish are all in the mix off La Ribera. I spoke with one skipper that landed 4 wahoo a couple days ago. Also early mornings walking the beach I'm watching sierra mackerel busting large schools of bait. Pounding surf just hasn't allowed tin boaters to get out after them.
Cabo Fish Report by George Landrum (12/31/2012)
[Cabo San Lucas,BJ] Holiday fishing has been good and is becoming great! Good weather and calm seas combined with hungry fish made this past week a great gift!

Dorado and Wahoo Action off Punta Gorda by Eric Brictson (12/23/2012)
[San Jose del Cabo,BJ] Most common species were dorado, hooked on trolled lures and various baitfish, sizes ranged from 5 to 40 pounds and many anglers were easily landing their two fish limits, while releasing additional fish. Wahoo also went on the bite in recent days, hot spot was off of Punta Gorda and live bait, especially mackerel, were taking aggressive strikes, sizes were averaging in the 15 to 30 pound class.
It's all about opportunity by Mark Rayor (12/23/2012)
[East Cape,BJ] It is interesting how both have completely different styles. Graham is very calculated, precise and is alway analyzing the situation. He sets up most of his shots making the skipper move the boat until the light is right, getting the anglers set and also adjusting the settings on his camera to capture the moment best. Nilsen is the exact opposite. He draws his camera like a six shooter and blasts away.

Last one standing by Mark Rayor (12/08/2012)
[East Cape,BJ] We landed three 200 pound class tuna and broke one off. Our average fight time on these monsters was 30 minutes a fish. I tribute that not only to experienced fishermen but also the great tackle and all Accurate reels the Great White is equipped with.
