really can’t ask for any better weather than we had for the last couple weeks.
The sun just continues to shine about every day. We have had a couple overcast
days but nothing major. Highs around the mid to ladder 80’s and lows in the mid
to lower 60’s. Everyone knows why so many people do come to Cabo and it’s the
near perfect weather year round. We do get some hotter months in July, August
and September but during those months, all the fishing and water sports here,
are really good.
quite the contrast of water temperatures from the Pacific side to up inside the
Sea of Cortez. I was looking at the Temp Break map and it shows lots of really
cool water on Pacific, from entrance at Cabo harbor, south east towards Gordo
Banks, its all really warm water. From 69 in some areas on Pacific to 72 on the
other side of Gordo Banks. I think we know where e will be finding the fish
over the next week. This link
which will show you water temperatures for the southern half of Baja.
Striped Marlin fishing has been pretty slow this past week and most fish being
landed on ballyhoo along with pitching live bait, with a few on lures. Striped
Marlin hasn’t been good all week, on either the Pacific side or the Sea of
Cortez. Pretty much over the last 2 weeks we haven’t had that much Marlin
Pretty slow for Dorado over the last week I haven’t heard of to much at all.
interesting facts on Dorado:
Turquoise, green, and yellow patterns; can be distinguished from the pompano
dolphin by its 55 to 66 dorsal fin rays and a very wide, square tooth patch on
largest dolphin fish length reported is almost 7 feet (2.1 m); the maximum
weight reported is 88 pounds (40 kg).
3. Growth is
extremely rapid. Specific rates vary among regions and are sensitive to water
pelagic fish; generally restricted to waters warmer than 68 degrees Fahrenheit
span: Short, maximum is 5 years; males live longer than females.
fish reach maturity at 4 to 5 months.
being caught that I have heard of lately
Tuna around, our boats have been boating a few of them with live bait, chunking
with squid and kingbusters. There hasn’t been any Porpoise running with the
fish so we had to look for them with electronics we have on our own Bob Marlin
and this paid off big time. We had managed to just spot a few birds circling
and we went in that direction and was able to pick up a school via electronics
and we followed them for awhile and started landing quite a few in the 25lb to
35lbs range about a mile of from the arch.
Really its all about Triggerfish as this has been the inshore story over the
past week. Lots of Triggers being landed and there pretty good to eat if you
fry them up. Just dip them in flour and fry in olive oil and they come out
pretty tasty. Good numbers of Sierra being landed just about every day this
past week. From the Pump House down to the Solmar it is pretty much wide open
if your using hootchies and striped bait. Quite a few Skip Jacks close to shore
also being caught. If you like Sierra its your time right now.
