East Cape - The bite is on

East Cape - The bite is on
Just when I thought fishing couldn't get any better a couple of big tuna sainers came in and scooped up more than 200 ton. It put a crimp in fishing the porpoise schools offshore so we had to shift gears. Chunking squid on high spots has been very productive and filled the tuna gap. A bonus was also catching amberjack and dorado on the same spots.

It is great to see the dorado showing after being absent for a couple years. The season started with fish too small to keep but now respectable 20 to 40 pounds are being landed and the numbers of fish are increasing.

The last couple days the offshore tuna have bounced back and once again most of the fleet fishing the porpoise are returning with limits. Monster roosterfish have also shown in volume and are tearing up light tackle.

Margaritas are tasty, Coronas cold and the bite is on. It doesn't get any better than this!

Yesterday the roosters mostly beat us up. We could only go 3 for 11 on these 50 to 70 pound fish.

Good to see the dodos back.
