CABO SAN LUCAS FISH REPORT FOR DECEMBER 17-23, 2001

WEATHER: It warmed up a bit from last weeks conditions. We are seeing daytime temps in
the mid 70’s to low 80’s and the evenings have been in the mid 60’s. Pretty much a clear sky
week and the winds have been southerly most of the time but very light. (Deck The Halls)
WATER: Pretty much everything in range of the charter boats has been in the 76-77 degree
range. About 40 miles to the south-east of the cape there has been an intrusion of warmer water
that reaches the low 80’s. Water on the Sea of Cortes up towards San Jose has been a slight bit
off color but the Pacific side has been good and clear. Surface conditions have been good most of
the week with it getting just a bit choppy in the afternoon on occasion. (Angles We Have Heard
On High/High On Hope)
BAIT: Mostly Mackerel right now at $2 per bait and there have been plenty of Sardinas
available, most of them at $20 a scoop. (Poets + Angels)
FISHING:
BILLFISH: Not a great week for most of the boats on the billfish. They are out there but it has
been a matter of the right place at the right time. Golden Gate Banks seems to be the most
productive area again with some boats able to catch and release as many as 5 Striped Marlin per
trip, and other boats next to them getting lucky with hooking up one. Very few Blue Marlin or
Black Marlin this week as the water temperatures are cooling off. Most of the Striped Marlin
caught were tailing fish that fell for tossed live Mackerel. Little Drummer Boy/Luna Negra Beat)
YELLOWFIN TUNA: The are out in front of the Arches was putting out some Tuna in the 10-15
pound class for most of the week but the bite was slow. The same report came to me from the
Gordo Banks area. An occasional larger fish was hooked up but there was no consistency to the
action. Live Sardinas were almost the only thing that worked this week. (1st Nowell)
DORADO: Scattered around the area this week with few concentrations found. The exception
occurred when a boat was lucky enough to find floating debris, but for the most part I saw just as
many, if not more, Marlin flags as Dorado flags flying this week. Some fish in the 15 pound range
just off the beach kept anglers happy and there was the one or two Dorado per trip that attacked
the Marlin lures. (Shepherd’s Night Watch)
WAHOO: Nada (Away In A Manger/Island X’Mas(4 Bok Yun))
INSHORE: The action is starting to pick up a little bit as the Sierra bite starts to come on. The
fish are still on the small side but they are getting more numerous. The Dorado are supplying
some action as are a few Tuna. (Festival (of 7 lights))
NOTES: Merry Christmas and we hope you get all the fishing gear you were asking for. If you
were really good this year maybe you will get a trip to Cabo! Written to the only album of
Christmas music I own, “Poets & Angels” Music 4 The Holidays by guitarist Otmar Liebert,
Higher Octave Music, 1990
