    Hola amigos,

    Well the fishing on the East Cape continues to be one of the best, most consistent seasons we’ve had in over a decade. This past week we are still on an incredible tuna bite that started back in May and has been very consistent through today. We haven’t seen anything over 100lbs. yet, but we are seeing some nice fish in the 50-80 pound class. The roosterfish have been in town all season, but this week we started to see some monster roosters show up. I’m talking about 60-80lbs. gallos that will rock you when you hook one. A few boats that actually targeted roosters have been landing 10-15 in a single day. Most of these guys are smaller fish, but you always have a shot at one of the ones pictures below (all landed the last couple of weeks).

    Right on queue the big bull dorado have shown up, a week before the biggest dorado tournament of the year. The Dorado Shoot Out will be held on July 21st, with the heaviest dorado taking home a brand new 2018 Volkswagen Amarok pickup truck. The timing could not have been better, as this week we started to see some very nice tournament size dorado landed in the 40-60lbs. range. This should make for another great tournament next week.

    The inshore fishing has been red hot as well, with the above mentioned roosters, pargo, amber jacks, jack crevalle, lady fish and more. Many anglers have been passing up on this inshore action and heading straight for the tuna grounds, but there is a lot of great action not too far from the resorts. There has also been a great bite on the billfish, with lots of shots at striped marlin, some blue marlin and even a few sailfish have shown up to join the party. The wahoo bite has been up and down, but we are seeing a few throughout the week, so we know they are out there.

    We are heading into the time of year where almost all of the species that made the East Cape a one of a kind fishing destination start showing up. Almost everything is here right now and typically August and September are our best fishing months. Based on the way the season is going so far, this should be a summer to remember. If you haven’t made your plans to visit the East Cape, you need to get on the phone soon and book a trip. You don’t want to miss out on what has so far been an epic 2018 season.

    That’s it for this week amigos!

    Hope to see many of you down here soon!
