April started with a windy beginning. Sunday and Monday were a little choppy Results were still very good. Paul Brown was able to coax up a 50# Caberra Snapper along with 8 Yellow fin tuna from 40 - 80 Lbs. The Fishing guides from Elfin Cove were also out scoring big on Yellow fin Tuna, Yellow tail and Medium Dorado up to 15#'s.Water temps are normal for this time of year 72 degrees. Bait has been a blessing with lots of sardines available and Spanish mackerel available for the Yellow tail. With flat water who knows what they will bring back in the next few days keep tuned in and as always tight lines Baja Pirates

Greg, Blain and Scott went out and hit it big on Caqberra Snappers, together they landed three of the big fish weighing 45 plus pounds each.
The Yellowfin tuna bite continues to be steady in the 2nd week of April ranging from 45# to 60 # and are making it to the docks daily. We had a visit from a Killer Whale pod but even that did not slow down the tuna bite. Water temps are holding steady 70- 74 degrees. Wind is a little breezy in the early morning laying down by 10am .Roosters are starting to show near Techolote beach. Lots of small to mid range Dorado. Billfish starting to be seen jumping chasing bait. We landed and released or first Sailfish of the year Big Red Caberra Snappers are showing up daily 45- 50 # Cabrilla and many different types of Snappers are being caught on the daily catch

The group of friends from Kelly Short Outdoors come down again this year and scored big on tuna on their first day of fishing. Tommy won the jackpot with his 50lb. catch.
The tuna bite continues! Sean Jackson landed the "Catch of the Day" with his 50# tuna and in doing so won the daily jackpot. Nice going Sean.
04/20/18 We had an unseasonable high wind over the weekend with winds reaching 30 knots from the northwest. The Harbormaster closed the harbor Saturday and opened it back on Sunday. We generally have very little wind in this time but it took about 5 days to get everything back to normal.
Yellowfin tuna up to 50 # are again the normal. Yellowtail are also in the mix. Plenty of Cabrilla, and other grouper and Snappers are again showing up on the docks. Dorados are starting to get some size to them with 12-15 #'s starting to show. May brings in the Roosterfish. We are expecting a great Rooster season with the bait still locked up in La Paz.
Peter Reel and John Bled show everyone that the tuna and the yellowtail are still biting in this photo.
