The yellowfin tuna caught throughout the week were the attention-getters in size and quantity, and adding a little variety were the skipjack that were tagging along with the larger tuna. The skipjack were content to feast on the scraps of bait that the tuna missed.

Another glassy day on Laguna Ojo de Liebre with sleepy mothers and calves and mating trios. Our trip began with catching sight of the Pink Floyd (whale penis) and several mating trios. The female kept coming over to us and under our panga, and the males would chase her out. We saw lots of majestic spy hops and impressive breaches. A wonderful day with whales!.…
Good day. Limits on robalo, grouper, pargo and corvina with Captain Rubin Duran at Lopez Mateos….Mark Rayor

Only one Dorado caught and a few Skipjack Tuna and still a few good inshore catches of Sierra Mackerel, Grouper, Snapper, Ladyfish, Bonita, Triggerfish, etc….Rebecca Ehrenberg

Here ya go , haven’t got one this big in about 6 years…Dave & Geri Christman. aboard the “Geri Lynn”
Anglers saw great action for dorado. Limits were common, with many releases scattered throughout the region. However, small to medium-sized fish were being found closer to shore, and some larger specimens were on the offshore grounds where there were marlin and sailfish. These fish were readily caught with lures and various bait.
Bait supplies consisted of ballyhoo, mullet, slabs of squid, and the sardina also rebounded recently, schooling close to shore near the marina jetties.
Good Fishing…Eric Brictson, Gordo Banks Pangas
