WEATHER: Typical great weather this past week with little or no wind and great sunny days with highs in the mid 80,s and lows in the ladder to low 60,s. On the Pacific side cruising in our boat the water has been glassy with no wind affected seas at all. We do wish every day was like the last few days, pretty calm making for a smooth boat ride.

WATER: We have some warm water moving in from the south over the last few days so we expect some temperature changes soon and this will no doubt effect the fishing this up coming week.The water right outside Cabo Harbor is right around 72 to 76 degrees and actually pretty nice. Pacific side up and around the Finger Baja where it was dipping down to 70 degrees is still cold up there and it is like night and day compared to the Pacific side and the Cortez side. Cabo Bay is sitting right where cold water and warm water meet.This link which will show you water temperatures for the southern half of Baja. 

BILLFISH: Striped Marlin wasn’t too bad as there is still Marlin around and we are averaging about one per trip which isn’t too bad. Most are being enticed by live bait, but it seems the fish are slow to bite. They seem to also be moving all over the place from the 1150 to the Light House. The Marlin fishing is nothing great, but it is happening somewhat.


DORADO: We landed a few and so did other fishing fleets, so I cant say its dead its just not great by no means.

WAHOO: Petty good action over the last week with our own Bob Marlin landing a few Wahoo and reports of other fleets running into the Wahoo bite. Trolling purple feathers seems to be working pretty well.


TUNA: This has been our best species this past week with lots of Tuna around in and around the San Jamie Bank. We are using king busters and cedar plugs to land the mostly 15 to 20lbs fish. Most are football size fish but there is a lot around, so if you want to catch some Tuna I would book a boat over the next 3 or 4 days before it changes.

INSHORE: Well we have lots of good inshore action happening with lots of Rooster Fish, Jack Crevell, Sierra and Yellowtail. One of our boats landed 6 Roosters all about 20lbs a piece. The Roosters were caught using live bait up and around the Pump House down to Pedregal Rocks. Jigging iron for the Yellowtail at Margaritas area has been productive and also in the mix some Amber Jacks were being taken. A few Groupers and Sheephead in and around the Pedregal Rocks. I mean there is all kinds of fish in this area to catch and its not like we are getting skunked but it has been down compared to normal. All in all the fishing this past week has been hit and miss and we aren’t knocking them dead.
