Warm water close to shore with not much change in temperature. The whole area is blanketed in a warm bathtub like water with fishing being to Outstanding these days. The Striped Marlin which prefer a little cooler water are not round like normal but the Blue Marlin are here in great numbers and this everything to do with our warm water temperatures.
BILLFISH: Blue Marlin fishing continues to be the hot species of the week. It seems the fish have moved up to the Pacific side where the water has been somewhat cooler, around San Jamie Banks and the Migrino area. Most of the Blues have been landed with lures and the Striped Marlin on live bait. We have had real good numbers of Sailfish this past week and this continued now for the last 3 weeks, with good Sailfish numbers being caught and released. So if you’re into Blue Marlin you had better get to Cabo, as this year has been really good and we think it will continue through October.
DORADO: Fishing for Dorado was not happening this past week with very few if any being reported. It has been pretty disappointing the last 2 years for Dorado action as it ha been pretty bad. We think this might have something to do with El Nino this year but really not sure what is going on. We do know we need to practice limits, laws and conservation and keep any Japanese fisherman out of here with their nets.
SWORDFISH: Hasn’t heard of any caught this week.
WAHOO: Yes a few landed over this past week at Gray Rock on jet heads so if your into Wahoo try that area over the next few days.
TUNA: Well, there has been some action on the Tuna we lost one 100 LB tuna after 1 hour fight, caught and released a 7 ft shark, a few small tuna, and this 200 LB tuna and facebook post: https://www.facebook.com/cabosportfishingcharters
INSHORE: Rooster Fish are what is happening inshore. There is a bit of green water closer to shore so that hasn’t helped really, but all in all it is mostly Rooster action from San Jose all the way to the Pacific side around San Jamie Banks. Some Skip Jacks are hitting also with some good numbers being reported. There has been Sailfish reported caught inshore also on Pangas so it mite be worth grabbing a Panga and going out for a 5 hour excursion to see what happens inshore.
With fishing being this good you should really consider booking to fishing dates and having a blast on the water.
