August has arrived and East Cape is experiencing the most consistent bite of the season. Schooling yellowfin are being found by fleet boats from Punta Perico to Los Frailes and providing limits for most targeting tuna. Some schools are just breezing while the better grade of tuna are with porpoise. Sailfish have been consistent for a while and now big blue marlin are bending rods.
It is my opinion and observation that our season has finally kicked into gear but it is about a month behind. We are normally knee deep in Yellowfin starting early May but this year they didn't arrive until June. Traditionally blue marling fishing turns on early July but it didn't happen this year until August. Looking ahead it is going to be interesting to see what fall brings.
Blue marlin finally show.

This was the Presley families first visit to the East Cape. Look at the smiles, I have a feeling it won't be their last.
That is the end of my tale for this week
