Cabo Fishing Report [Post#: 500 ] Reply to this post

WEATHER: Great weather but the wind picked up strongly on Wednesday and the clouds
moved in overnight on Saturday, we actually got a pretty good sprinkle out of it, enough to chase
a few people out of the beach bars! Other than that we had typical Cabo days and nights.
Daytime temps in the high 80’s and evenings hit the low 70’s. (Into The Mystic)
WATER: Water on the Pacific cooling down, in the 78 degree range, still warm in the 81-82
range on the Sea of Cortez. Pacific side very rough from mid week on due to the winds. The
barrier on the Pacific where the water went from the 80’s to the 70’s moved much closer to shore
and is off the San Jaime Banks entirely. (Anybody Seen My Girl)
BAIT: Usual story on the bait. A mix of Caballito and small Mackerel plus there has been
Sardinas available here in Cabo at a reasonable $10 for half a bucket. ( Delta Lady)


BILLFISH: Definite drop in the Blue Marlin catch but the bite on the Striped Marlin is picking up
as the water temperatures return to the range that they like. Most of the action has been on the
Pacific side where the 78 degree water is located. We spotted quite a few tailing fish this week
and a number were caught by boats putting in the time needed to bait them on the drop at the
lighthouse ledge. (Heart Full Of Rain)

YELLOWFIN TUNA: Yellowfin Tuna still footballs, scattered. There have been some nicer fish
found mixed in with the porpoise but by no means a sure thing. Basically, first come, first served!
(Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood)

DORADO: Lots of Dorado around floating Debris, mostly on the Pacific side, scattered
elsewhere. On Sunday almost every boat that was willing to make the trip out 12 miles south of
the lighthouse was able to catch limits (some boat got greedy and with only two anglers on board
loaded up with over 30 Dorado). There has been a bit of debris being found almost every day.
Having Sardinas on board or having caught a Skipjack Tuna earlier to use for strip bait got the
action kicking in.. (Many Rivers To Cross)

WAHOO: Very few Wahoo were caught this week and the ones that we caught were fairly nice
fish. Most of them came up from the Pacific side off the lighthouse and then out towards the San
Jaime Banks. (High Lonesome Blue)

INSHORE: Inshore action slow, some Sierra starting to show. Most of the action has been with
the Dorado and the Tuna. Not a lot of action on the usual inshore species but they should start to
pick up soon. (Sail Away)

NOTES: Written to the emotional vocals of Joe Cocker on his C.D. “Organic”, 1996 Sony
Music. This report is a bit brief, my father had a lung transplant last year and I am proud that he
is in Cabo visiting us! We went out on the boat today in the afternoon after the charter and he
had a great time, even if he didn’t catch a fish. Thanks Dad!
