Moon, Currents, Winds Slow Action

July 25, 2021

As we rapidly progress through this month, we continue to see light numbers of anglers arriving, though it does appear that there are quite a few tourists in town. No new tropical storms are threatening at this time and overall the weather this past week has been more stable. Winds out of the north on the Pacific and also swirling around and blowing out of the north down from Los Frailes. Crazy strong currents prevalent and moderate ocean swells, ocean temperatures up to 85 degrees in certain zones. 

Bait supplies are plentiful for sardinas, mullet, caballito and some moon fish. Offshore action has been limited, scattered action found for mostly small size striped marlin, a few sailfish and occasional dorado being encountered, a few of these being over 20 lb.Closer to the shore and off the bottom rocky reefs there has been better chances at more variety and numbers of fish. Roosterfish season never really got going as strong as we normally see, though recently there has been good chances of hooking into roosters of 40 lb. or larger size, trolling mullet or caballito proved to be most effective.

Off the rock structure anglers found more triggerfish and yellow snapper than anything else, though there were also amberjack, cabrilla, dogtooth snapper, yellowtail, bluefin trevally, pompano, barred pargo and other species accounted for.

Chances for tuna near Vinorama, though this week that action dropped way off, perhaps the full moon, rapid currents, abundance of skipjack and needle fish all contributed to this.

On the Gordo Banks the larger sized back skipjack are dominating, wearing anglers out and not giving them much of a chance at finding other species.

Good Fishing, Eric
