Do you want the good news or the bad news first??
We are pleased to report an improvement in fishing this week both generally and for billfish.
That’s definitely the good news from our friends at Pisces Sportfishing Cabo San Lucas. The not-so-good-news is that local Baja water temperatures are still higher than normal which may be affecting the quality of fishing off the Cabo coast. But, let’s take this glass half full and focus on the positives of the Cabo fishing scene last week.There were more Marlin spotted this week and visiting anglers were reeling them in from all around the Sea of Cortez and Pacific. 57% of Pisces Sportfishing boats caught marlin this week, giving us a total of 46 fish, all released, except one.
Other than the marlin, dorado catches dropped slightly for the Pisces boats. One might be surprised that there were a half dozen mako sharks caught between 40 and 80 lbs. “Other catches closer to shore were a few sierra, skipjacks, jack crevalle and the odd grouper. These smaller game catches accounted for twenty nine percent of the fleet production.”
We have to give a big props to the Pisces Sportfishing crew. They’ve made the most out of the conditions no matter what. These are the seasons when you really want the expertise of local anglers. They know where to take you to yield the best results.
Partly cloudy skies, otherwise sunny, seas moderate with light winds.
Migrino, Los Arcos, Pozo de Cota, Margaritas, Destiladeras – catches were better on the Pacific.
