Rancho Leonero Resort, East Cape BCS, Mexico
A report right from the source:
The week of Sept. 6-13, 2014
The Environment:
Hurricane Norbert caused a lot of disruption, but also it really switched the fishing on. Before the storm, the water temps had stagnated at around 90 degrees. The storm dropped them to the 70s and they have slowly returned to the mid-80s.
However, as this report is being written, Hurricane Odile is thundering toward the tip of Baja with expected landfall later Sunday night.
The Bottom Line:
This was a “Shopping List” week. If anglers wanted a marlin, they caught a marlin;
if they wanted a wahoo, they went out and got a ’hoo. Same for tuna and dorado!
It was a definite 9 on the Rancho Leonero 1 to 10 scale.

Billfish – All the species are around and biting well, with sailfish probably the most predominant.
Yellowfin Tuna – The bite south of Los Frailes continues strong. These are good-sized fish from footballs to 80-pounders.
Dorado – Good bite all around the Lighthouse and scattered throughout the bay. Seek and ye shall find!
Roosterfish – Big fish all along the beaches and around the Lighthouse, as well as La Ribera and the Marina entrance.
Meanwhile, Back at the Ranch …
Hot, hot, hot … with amberjack, pompano, largo and jack crevalle bending every rod in sight!
