    Rancho Leonero Resort, East Cape, BCS, Mexico
    The week of April 19-April 26, 2014

    A report right from the source:

    Broadcast live on Sunday mornings on “Let’s Talk HookUp” 7-9am PDT

    [​IMG]

    Water - 79-81 degrees; clear and flat all week.

    Air
    - Highs in the mid-80s; cool mornings.

    The Environment:


    Flat water, light breezes, clear skies and noisy reels followed by ceviche and margaritas.

    The Bottom Line:

    A solid Leonero 8+ on a “1-10” scale!

    Marlin– Off the board! Striped marlin are loving the trolled Leonero-rigged ballyhoo off the La Ribera Bank, with three or four releases a day not unusual. These are all big fish … right around 200 pounds.

    [​IMG]
    Dorado –The dorado were bigger and were found in greater numbers than the past couple of weeks. Most of our boats have been limiting, with the average fish around 12 pounds and some bulls pushing 40.

    The area around the Lighthouse has been by far the most productive with the fish biting very close to the beach on the Rincon side.

    Meanwhile, back at the ranch …

    Steven and Nicholas Lawrence, Los Angeles each landed bucket list sized roosters this week when Dia del Niño, a Mexican holiday celebrating Children was celebrated.

    Roosterfish and more– Our big roosterfish have finally come to the party! Five days out of the past seven have produced pez gallo in the 50- to 70-pound class. These will put a bend in your rod and a curl in your hair to say nothing of brightening your disposition after a long winter.

    Caballito and mullet are both working, with the Lighthouse area again producing the biggest fish.

    Pompano – Not too many boats looking for them with marlin, dorado and roosters on everyone’s mind … but if you want to give them a try, stick around Scott Glen’s house.

    I see that most roosters are caught on live bait,is it possible to cast to them off the boat?
