Cabo San Lucas – Saltwater Fishing Report

WEATHER: It hasn't changed much in the last 2 weeks. The weather has been really good over the last week. It has been actually a little warmer than normal for this time of year. There really hasn't been a winter here to speak of with temperatures above average. I would say today it was pushing 85 to 90 degrees in the day time and lows in to the ladder 50,s to mid 60,s
WATER: In the beginning of the week the water temperature was hovering from 69 to 70 degrees and then later in the week it rose all the way up to 75 to 76 degrees making for a Dorado bite this past week. The Dorado bite was really slow last week due to cold water temperatures.
TUNA: The Tuna bite has just been ok, nothing really special, we did find them a couple days last way offshore about 18 to 28 miles out. Most of the fish being caught are 15lbs to 30lbs and are caught using cedar plugs and striker kings. It isn't really good for Tuna right now unless you run way offshore and get lucky to run into a school of fish.
BILLFISH: Well the Striped Marlin fishing has really stayed steady over the last 5 weeks and I am really just not say that as I have expected it to slow at least one week but it really has been good. Most of the action is up around the Golden Gate and we are drifting live bait at about 160ft. We have been making bait up there at the Golden Gate with lots of sardines on lucky joes and were using them also on Ballyhoo. Very few Marlin being taken on lures or pitching bait as most seem to be deeper. The 1150 and the 95 spots have also had some luck this week on Striped Marlin using some of the same techniques.
DORADO: We did get a some warmer water roll into the area making for a better week for Dorado with a few boats reporting numbers of Dorado. There wasn't hardly any caught last week so this is welcome news to us and we hope for a more productive week coming.
