Everyday this past week has been really great weather! Highs in the mid 80,s in
the day time and dropping to the low 60, at night. We cant ask for much better
than this weather, there was a couple days of partial overcast and clouds but
still warm. You you ever come to Cabo and spend a little time you will
understand why so many people flock here, and has a lot to do with the
the water is still like it was last week with not much change. Water temperatures
lingering around 71 to 72 degrees, but offshore 5 to 8 miles there is much
warmer water according to the Tempbreak.com map. Really kind of all over the
place this year for weird water temperatures. Not the normal cycle we are
accustomed to and I think this has affected the fact only a hnd full of
Yellowtail have shown this year.This link which will show you water
temperatures for the southern half of Baja.
Marlin fishing has been hit and miss. The areas that are producing are up on
the Pacific side, but it has been tough to catch them. At the beginning of the
week it was pretty good in the areas of the 1150 and the 95 spots as we were
catching good numbers of fish on live bait and ballyhoo. Then the fish seemed
to have moved to the Pacific up and around Rancho Migrino. So it has been
unpredictable as to where we are going to find the fish, but lucky for us, we
don’t have to go for much of a boat ride to run into great fishing, cause we
are in Cabo. Lucky Us!!!
Dorado fishing was happening up on the Pacific side around Ranch Migrinon and
the guys were scoring the fish with lures along with live bait, but really not
that many. It hasn’t been to good, but a few.
WAHOO: A few
Wahoo around, but really not a lot. The ones that were caught were using
rapalas dragged with Downriggers. I understand this was effective on some
occasions this past week.
TUNA: At the
beginning of the week we did have one good day for Tuna at the San Jamie Banks.
We were using king busters and cedar plugs, but before long they were just
gone. That’s fishing for Tuna in Cabo, sometimes there here on top of us and
sometimes we have to run 25 miles to get to them.
inshore fishing has been just ok with some Sierras and even a few Yellowtail
reported off the Pedregal Rocks on rapalas and jigging iron. We expect when the
water has finally cooled some, we will see some better inshore action, on
Sierras and Yellowtail.
