First Mate of TantRum Humbert shows off a beautiful “Pez Gallo” (Rooster Fish) that he helped catch during a day fishing in shore. The inshore bite has been consistently fun and productive. Although it is a little frustrating that the “big boys” still haven’t come out in full effect we are making lemonade with the lemons that have been handed to us! Our goal is to keep our anglers active, happy and on the fish! Near or far!
Tuesday, March 22nd: Kent Sommer headed out for Day 2 on 19’s and landed a nice Dorado. He was able to add the Bull Dorado to a mixed bag of Snapper, Sierra and Seabass! The Sarantes were able to add half a dozen Seabass and 4 Snapper to the daily catch while the Derner’s fishing a half-day on RumRunnin caught Sierra, Rooster Fish and Amberjack with Captain Jesus!
Wednesday, March 23rd: With the cold water still being pushed through the offshore bite has not come around yet and today the inshore game was strong. Each boat that headed out hooked into multiple Grouper, Trigger Fish, Seabass and Rooster. The Cobb Party tested their luck outside on the Pacific Side and unfortunately came up short after spotting 3 schools of porpoise that weren’t holding any Tuna.
Thursday, March 24th: ReelRum and RedRum both fished half-days and filled their boxes with bottom fish including more Sierra, a few Rooster Fish and a nice Grouper caught by the Franco’s. The Paige Party fishing aboard TantRum also landed a nice Grouper that they saved for dinner! Captain Jesus and Mate Jesus put Erin Hershey and her party on half a dozen Rooster Fish!
Friday, March 25th: The Catch of the Day comes from El Nuevo and the Chad Justus from the Pasco County, Fl. CCA group. He along with his buddies had an impressive day on the water with Alex and Christian. It’s been quite some time since we’ve seen a Marlin caught and this team was able to wrestle 2 of them to the boat and more impressively litered a #200+ Hammerhead shark to the side of the boat! Rooster Fish, Sierra and other Inshore fish kept anglers on TantRum, ReelRum and RedRum busy!
Saturday, March 26th: Frederick Sandberg is planning on spending the next 4 days fishing with Humberto and Juan aboard TantRum. He and his buddy Josh Bible heard how solid the Rooster Fish bite has been up the Pacific Side has been and decided to target them on Day 1. they were glad they did as Humberto helped them bring 8 to the boat! Great start to their trip. The Nielson’s fishing on RumRunnin added a few more Rooster to the Day’s Count as well as some Spanish Mackerel and a Needlefish! RedRum and Top Gun hugged the same Shoreline and pulled up several more Sierra, Trigger Fish and “Pez Fuerte” (Jack Crevalle).
Sunday, March 27th: The bite stayed inshore this morning as TantRum and El Nuevo both headed out to try to look for some Yellowfin and Marlin but weren’t satisfied with the water conditions (temperature, color and lack of movement). They both retured back inshore in time to still land some Jack Crevalle and Triggerfish!
Monday, March 28th: A Marlin release and a few Yellowfin caught around the San Jaime headlined todays catch and also gave me some hope that the fishing is soon going to turn! Sandberg/Bible fishing on TantRum were super happy to add the Yellowfin to their trip tally. The pair has caught fish each day out on the water! Just as impressive was Captain Omar and Oscar hooking into a 97″ Striped Marlin with Garrett Olivotti! The team was able to release the fish after taking pictures! Great work. ReelRum, RumRunnin and El Nuevo landed Sierra, Rooster Fish and Grouper to end our report.
As you can see, the tough conditions are still keeping us heading up the Pacific Side and using our inshore skills to keep anglers busy. We realize that most come down in hopes to land the big one and we certainly wish it was a 365 day promise but for those looking to keep busy and experience fishing inshore, baja style, now is the time!
