WATER: Good size waves coming in over the last 4 days with 3 to 5 feet on the Sea of Cortez side and larger on the Pacific with 3 to 6 feet reported. Surfers down at Zippers love it but with a closed port it hurts out fishing business here in Cabo.
WEATHER: Well we started picking up more rain last week. The first part of the week we say lots of rain and wind really heavy at times. There were some rain damage to streets and the wind brought down some trees and power poles.
BILLFISHING: The Marlin fishing has slowed down pretty much with the storm. We did land a few Striped Marlin on our own Bob Marlin and caught 5 Marlin one day. Trolling lures and using live bait 4 miles offshore up by the Jamie Banks was producing some of the Striped Marlin.
TUNA: There has been good numbers of Tuna around up until the storm like every other species. Most were smaller fish and we have been landing them on cedar plugs and king busters. Two weeks we just knocked them dead kite fishing and if you check my website on the home page there is some pictures of the Tuna catch. We landed a couple up and over 200 pounds 2 weeks ago.. Please check it out on the website.
BAIT: Bait is the standard 3.00 dollars a piece and there has been plenty around:
DORADO: Good numbers of Dorado with quite a few small ones but we are catching some in the 12lbs to 30lbs range. To catch a lot of the smaller ones we were using lures and cut ballyhoo. Pitching live bait has been real effective once you find the Dorado. There doesn’t seem to be a specific spot for the Dorado but there are still a lot of them around both on the pacific side and Sea of Cortez side all the way down to Gordo Banks.
INSHORE: More bad weather this past week slowed down the inshore fishing. Rough conditions made it hard for the pangas to go out . Some Rooster Fish were being caught in the 20 to 30lbs pound range trolling live bait from the Solmar to the Pump House close to the beach. Some nice Amber Jack and Jack Crevelle using live bait in the same areas as the Roosters were caught. Some small Dorado close to shore were caught trolling hootchies.
WAHOO: There were some Wahoo caught off of Jamie Banks this week. Lures and live bait did the trick to land the fish.
