Fishing Reports

Whether you fish the local Southern California waters or down in Mexico, these links listed below will help you locate the best areas to fish and what you need for catching them . . .

1 East Cape
Located in the Sea of Cortez from Los Frailes to the south and Punta Arena de la Ventana to the north, this area is one of the most consistent areas in the world for tuna, dorado, sailfish, roosterfish, stripped marlin, and blue marlin.
East Cape

2 La Paz
One of our favorite places to stay in the beautiful Sea of Cortez. La Paz with its friendly people, drop dead gorgeous sunsets, and year round fishing make it a must for those wanting the vastness of Baja and the true Mexican experience.  We recommend Jonathon Roldan's Tailhunter Sport Fishing & Diving Adventures as who we would personally use when fishing pangas out of La Paz.

3 Cabo San Lucas
Located on the southern tip of Baja, this area is home of some of the largest and most prestige's marlin tournaments in the world.

4 976BITE
This would have to be one our "GOTO" websites when fishing for Bluefin, Albacore, Yellowtail, and Yellowfin during the months of April through October.  Very close with the private boaters out of San Diego, Bob only puts up verified information and we would consider his information top notch for fishing southern California offshore and northern Baja.

  • Hot Yellowtail Action (083114)
    Hello everyone;  Weather today was very HUMID, overcast in the morning, but by the afternoon it was sunny, with a slight breeze, just enough to keep you cool.  The breeze was the only thing that was cool today, because the Yellowtail fishing was excellent, with limits (daily limits) for all aboard.  Most of the fish were in the 15 to 18 pound range, with a few in the 12 to 14 pound category. We did have a few in the 22 to 30 pound range also.  The Yellowtail started biting around 08:00 hours, and we had steady fishing until we departed for San Benito  Island.

    We are headed to San Benito to make bait, and fish for Yellowtail in the morning.  Most of our passengers are napping for now, while others are gearing up for tomorrows fishing adventure. 

    So until tomorrow, wish us luck.  The R/p crew.

    Slow Day Moving South (083014)
    Hello everyone;  Our weather today was overcast, with a slight breeze out of the northwest.  Fishing today was a bit slow, with only a handful of Yellowtail and Rock fish caught.  We did make a drift in the late afternoon, and the Calico Bass bit.  Most of the fish were released back to the ocean, but a few where kept for a lunch. 

    We are now moving south, and will arrive to our next destination at 23:00 hours.  Wish us luck and we hope to have a better report tomorrow.  The R/p crew.

  • Corky Yokoe Open (082914)
    Hello everyone;  We departed Fisherman's landing at 10:00 hours on the Corky Yokoe charter.  Corky is stuck in Japan, so Matt Matsuno is filling in as Charter Master.  We have an excellent load of bait, and we headed west. 

    Around 15:00 hours we had our first stop.  We picked away at the Yellowfin for most of the afternoon, and would come very close to our daily limits of Yellowfin tuna.  Just a couple of fish short, but that's fishing.  With a good afternoon, we are now headed for points south, hoping to find some Yellowtail in the morning, so wish us luck.

    Hey RP fans,

    Today we not only enjoyed beautiful weather but excellent yellowfin tuna fishing as well. Half of the fish weighed 8-15 pounds and the other half 18-25 pounds. We are staying put and hoping for a big day tomorrow.
