Are there any Dorado reports?If so where?
I'll second that question. I'm sitting here on the balcony in conchas chinas watching a couple panga's go by... and while I don't have any offshore fishing planned for while I'm down here this year (unless someone has an open seat or a charter they want to split.. here until the 22nd) I am wondering how this huge full moon affects fishing down here? Up north that would really mess up the king salmon bite as the fish would be feeding pretty much all night long...
The full moon lets the fish feed all night as a fish only looks up therefor it sees the baitfish and eats all night.We know the fishing isnt as good with a full moon.We go anyway,as fishing with no fish is better than not going.
Yeah... some fisheries seem more affected by that than others and I wondered how that worked here... (like bottom fish vs. pelagic fish or in my home salmon vs halibut) tight lines anyways and hope you find willing biters.
And like you implied a slow day fishing is better than good day at work. Of course Since my wife has input on things like the offshore fishing budget I will just be watching from the sidelines here on the balcony unless I hear a report I can't pass up or a deal too good to be true!
I have never fished in PV but fish all over the place and I fish the full moon all the time in fact I usually plan my schedule fishing the full moon, huge tides get some tidal current moving over the reefs and banks. In Oct in Costa Rica we tagged 35 blue marlin out of 96 bites over the full moon
It's all a crap shoot honestly. My BEST white seabass bites were during shit tides and moon phases. Timing the moon phase can increase your chances, but its just one of the many factors that comes into play.
Current report is sunny and warm.
Yesterday we went to Banco water was green no birds no baitfish,then went to corb.rock more of same.Fished bottom with some success.Drinking beer and enjoying beautifuf calm seas
Post some bottom fishing pics!
Current up the the minute report...tacos at Eddie's place are tasty.
Leaving on the Apollo tonight!
Where is Eddies?
Eddie's is great! that is our go to when visiting N.V.
located at the so. side of the Marina just outside the gate
Jim you need to get out of El Tigre more! Go over the bridge toward the Nuevo side of Marina, pass Porto Bella. Keep going and the road dead ends at the Port Captain's office. Eddies is on right at the entrance to A dock, before Port Captain. Eddie's is the Go to place for guys going out on Apollo and Sucess. El Matador is first boat on A dock. Ask Chuy to bring you to Barbara's and I'll walk you down and buy you a beer.
will be there March 4!! Can't wait for a another trip to Eddie's and Mariscos 8...awesome sopa there! And looking forward to checking other Nuevo places like Porto Bella....and a trip with Capt. Manny of course!!
Barracuda is a much better go to right around the corner from Eddies place. Eddies is a good place to get Wifi. The pass code is posted above the door
Thanks for the info Jesse, anything within waking distance of the Mayan is on my list, only go to downtown PV twice in a week while there. Good to here other spots that don't require taxi or bus travel.
More pictures of tacos than fish this week. Red hot or dead? (Or all the big ballers out on 4+ day trips?)
I have hundreds of pictures of great fish caught here in mexican waters over the last 10 years.For me and reporting the day of fishing,its more important to report water temp,color,weather,bait used,location of fish,how fish were cleaned,bagged and cooked or released.We release most billfish and I pay a bonus for a good release.The billfish we keep have either swallowed the hook or have other damage that will not let them survive.We respect the Mexican waters,their people,their laws.I will continue to send fishing reports with data to help others .
It is an amazing place with awesome people and an incredible fishery. The last few years I have been privileged enough to come down for vacation with my family each year and explore. Every year my wife and I talk more and more about retiring down here and living the life you describe above. As that dream gets closer (and as the kids get bigger and I get more chances to fish while I'm down here) I'll pick your brain if that's ok and if your ever up in the pacific norhwest I would happily reciprocate info.
So also please forgive me if I'm excited about seeing fishing pictures while I'm down here. I'm staring out at this beautiful (but rougher today) water and looking at the marietas and the fishing fanatic in me likes a good fish story especially on the days that I can't make it out.
Continued tight lines and thanks for your conversation and for your conservation.
