Fishing Seasons

The East Cape is the same as any fishery in that fishing can be hot and cold and be influenced by many variables.   However, it is unlike most fisheries in that the East Cape produces many more species of fish so reliably and consistently year round. 

June through August are productive for both the inshore (roosterfish, etc.) and offshore fisheries, and promise great fishing no matter what your preference.  More than one angler has tied into a big roosterfish on the beach fronting the hotel after battling Blue Marlin offshore during the day.

June/July until late October is the prime time for offshore fishing, with big Yellowfin Tuna and Billfish available early in that time frame.  Blue Marlin do seem to wane in November through May, but often much of this is made up by good Striped Marlin action, along with the large Yellowfin.

During prime time most boats average a billfish a day although three blues/day is not uncommon. The blue marlin caught during the best months reportedly average about 250 pounds, the Striped Marlin about 125 pounds, sailfish about 50-60 pounds and dorado about 20-35 pounds.

April through August is the best time for inshore action with some huge Roosterfish and Grouper available, along with Pargo, Sierra and various Jacks.  Live bait are slow trolled down the beach from pangas and casting from the beach is also an option.  Be sure to bring your shore casting gear as it’s tough to find once you’re there.
