Fishing report Puerto Escondido January 2019

capi GeorgieAs promised from now on at the end of every month an overview of the beach and inshore catches in and around Puerto Escondido.

Beach fishing is limited to a few hours a week for me, January is a quiet month in Puertecito for catches from the beach. Cold currents cool down the beach water to approx. 20 ° C. and you have to be really lucky to see some activity. The big schools of jacks, sierra, … are now a few miles from the shore and can only be reached via a boat. One big exception: the beach around La Punta /Zicatela. Buddy Ruben catches early in the morning some nice fish there  , not only from the beach but also with his Ocean kayak.

I was invited for a morning boat fishing with a neighbor and good friend Mark and his wife Nikki. A morning never to be forgotten, my eldest son Jaffet has even caught the heaviest wahoo I have ever seen in this region. I was captain of the day but could also catch my first wahoo.

These wahoos are beautiful and superfast predatory fish, they are only around in January / February. The catch location: a huge boulder on a 10 minute boat ride from Puerto Escondido. Upon arrival at that underwater rock the fish were clearly visible on the depth gauge, after a few meters of trolling the first “barriletes con dienes” were caught, alternating with (small) dorado and ….. wahoo. The party continued until the current fell out.My first wahoo
Everything was neatly put back except the wahoos and some nice barriletes con dientes. These skipjacks with teeth are in contrast with the more common toothless skipjack very tasty and are eaten raw like the tuna with soya and wasabi sauce, accompanied by tomatoes and cucumber. 1 wahoo will be eaten by ourselves and “the crew” tomorrow, the other 2 went to 2 poor families together with some skipjacks.

A compliment for Levi from SurfandFishing Charters, I now know how hard it is to steer and position a 29ft. panga with a 250 hp bb engine and Levi does it time after time right down to the meter.

Some videos of Ruben and myself from last month can be found below as well as the facebook page of Levi. Watch and enjoy!

A new year and new intentions: at the end of each month, this blog provides a brief overview of the inshore and / or beach catches in and around Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, Mexico. Ruben from Casa Kalani and I continue with the construction of surface artificial bait and surface lures, but of course  we also fish with the excellent assortment of Stephen Jansen, the 90 gr. Ballyhoo is doing great, 1 comment: the 2 big triple hooks are best replaced by 2 single hooks, the roosters will thank you.

Flapper lureA series of Flappers has been made, but they will be adapted in the future to make it easier and easier and … raw material will be wood instead of hard plastic.

Enjoy the following short video with some highlights of the past year:

Casita Blanquis : de eerste “review”

Casita Blanquis
Exif_JPEG_420

Met de jaarwisseling hadden we onze eerste gasten in Casita Blanquis. Een Mexicaanse familie genoot blijkbaar van hun ontspannen vakantie in ons huisje.  Dit is hun  beoordeling :

Es una casa muy bien situada esta muy cerca de la playa, hay una bahía muy bonita donde puedes meterte sin miedo a las olas grandes. La casa tiene todo lo necesario es muy cómoda las camas son muy amplias y tiene todo lo necesario para la estancia. Muy recomendable, la atención de los dueños increíbles muy atentos en todo momento sin duda regresaremos!”

vertaald :

Het huis is goed gelegen pal aan het strand en er is een heel mooie beschutte baai waar je kan zwemmen zonder schrik te moeten hebben van de hoge golven.  Het huis heeft alles wat je nodig hebt, ruime en heel comfortabele bedden.  Aanbevelenswaardig, de attentie van de eigenaars op gelijk welk moment van de dag is ongelooflijk, we komen zeker terug.

Voor ons een opsteker natuurlijk en we gaan door op de ingeslagen weg.  Het huisje is te boeken via AIRBNB  of via een E Mail naar

2018 was goed, 2019 wordt beter !



2018 startte in mineur maar niettemin hadden we een interessant jaar met nieuwe bezoekers/vrienden en met de bouw van Casita Blanquis net vóór ons huis.

Een nieuw project dat start deze zomer en klaar moet zijn begin november 2019 : 1 extra comfortabel appartement met een tropische tuin op hetzelfde lot van Casita Blanquis. Dit nieuwe huisje zal 2 slaapkamers met eigen badkamer en een keuken/eetkamer  hebben maar wordt meer “open” gebouwd. Een nieuwe uitdaging dus.
