If you can get to Mexico’s west coast this week, then you’ll be in the right place for some great fishing. We’re hearing from Saltwater Nation anglers that there have been some terrific schools of big dorado–over twenty pounds–all over the legendary Gordos Banks. The fish have been hitting trolled ballyhoo, caballito, and an array of lures. Conveniently, too, the fish have been found only a few miles offshore.
We’re also hearing that there are quite a few tuna around, too, but not in the numbers we might expect this time of year.
Billfishing is also pretty remarkable right now, and anglers fishing the Pacific side of Cabo San Lucas are finding lots of striped marlin. We’re hearing that off of the old lighthouse and some of the deeper banks have been hot spots. We expect the billfish action to continue to improve as more mackerel move into the waters, as well.
Closer inshore, the word is roosterfish and sierra mackerel. keep in mind, though, that this time of year the roosters are likely to be small and anglers should be alert to carefully releasing the smaller fish.
