CABO SAN LUCAS, Mexico – It might be a slightly dreary time in the northern fringes of the Golden State, but the sun is shining and the fish are biting in waters to the south. South of the border, that is.

Here are a handful of fresh reports from some of our friends scattered throughout Mexico:

CABO SAN LUCAS: It’s a wildly mixed bag of wahoo, dorado and yellowfin tuna for the men and women fishing with the Red Rum fleet, with a healthy dose of crevalle, amberjack and various other species. Check out the Red Rum reports page.

LA PAZ: When longtime La Paz vet Jonathan Roldan of Tailhunters International calls the yellowtail fishing “crazy good”, you know it’s time to start booking reservations for La Paz and Las Arenas. Check out Roldan’s reports page for more info.

MAZATLAN: It’s the traditional time when striped marlin are the glamour species out of Mazatlan, but waters here have been consistently higher than normal. Best bite is about 18 miles out. Check out the Worldwide Fishing reports link for updates.

PUERTO VALLARTA: Striped marlin, sailfish and tuna on the outside, a mix of roosterfish, sails and yellowtail in the bay, according to Capt. Pete at Vallarta Fishing. Check out the Travel Vallarta fishing report for more info.
