WEATHER: Big problem all week except for today it has finally died down. WIND, WIND, WIND really the major story all of this past week as it has pretty much wiped out our fishing week last week and now its calm. Who knows? It was so windy at some points that it actually became dangerous to be out there fishing for some of the smaller boats.
WATER: Still quite the contrast of water temperatures from Pacific side to the East Cape area. I am thinking maybe the wind blew some cooler water towards San Jose over the last week cause we have been getting a good wind from the north all week. There is a huge difference in the water temperatures on the East Cape compared to closer to Cabo on the Pacific side where there is like a 10 degree difference in water. East Cape some areas are 84 degrees and here close to Cabo on the Pacific it is 74 degrees and colder in some spots, so quite the contrast and this will affect the fishing in both areas as we will be catching something completely different from them boys on the East Cape.
BILLFISH: Yup, the first Sailfish of the season caught last week and I remember last year we had some good action on the Saifish for a couple months. Well the Marlin fishing has definitely been affected by the wind this past week. Big number of Marlin being landed but a few from the 95 spot to Grey Rock, with most being landed on live bait and lures. Really nothing like the week before when we even caught some Blue and Black Marlin. Luckily the wind has died down and it's hot, hot. pretty calm and overcast today, Sunday the 5th of June.
DORADO: Finally a few are starting to show up as we landed some really nice ones this past week. We spotted some floating trach and it was making some shade for some really nice Doraods and we landed 4 from 25lbs to 35lbs, but in general it has been slow as they just haven't shown up this year yet and I am starting to wonder if the commercial fishing boats are raping the Dorado. I said this last week, but it's worth leaving in the report this week also: "If the USA would stop buying illegal fish caught in Mexico that would help a lot as it is not legal to net Dorado in Mexico because it is a sportfishing and not listed as a commercial species. It seems as long as there are buyers then this will continue to happen and it seems the authorities just look the other way since they are getting their cut". I wanted to repeat this as I think this is one of the problems of the fish not showing in numbers that we are used to here in Cabo
SWORDFISH: Havent heard of any caught this week.
WAHOO: A good week for Wahoo using planer boards and rapalas from Grey Rock to Santa Maria beach. Some nice fish reported, also try using some live bait for the Wahoo,s.
TUNA: They are pretty much scattered out and you have to keep a keen eye out for them. Tuna fishing has slowed big time with most being caught tight to the beach and they are in the Football size range using king busters and cedar plugs. If you try from the Light House all the way to San Jose you might run into some decent Tuna bites, but I don't think you will get any real big fish mostly all about the same size.
INSHORE: Good over last couple days since wind died down with good Sierra action from Grey Rock to Light House. Some Snappers close to the beach in the rocks off of Pedregal Beach. It has been slow as not to many Pangas going out due to windy conditions, but they have seen some action with Roosters from Gray Rock to Chileno Bay. If you slow trolled live bait you will see action on Roosters s one of our boats caught 8 Rooster Fish last week using these techniques. The Jack Crevall has been biting pretty good, really not that great to eat but fun to catch.
