Overall Catch Success Rate All Species Combined 80%
Numbers at a glance: Billfish 60%, Tuna 10%, Dorado 20%, Other 18%
BILLFISH: We had a pretty decent week, even though numbers are a bit lower this report, but this was directly linked to bad weather on February 5th, when we had cloudy skies, wind & choppy seas, causing even our most productive boats to come back with nothing, nevertheless other days we saw some really good fishing. The most exciting catch this week was of a 60 LB short bill spearfish
Fishing this week was for the most part consistent, however we had a couple of days when it was too windy to get up the Pacific to the Golden Gate where the marlin have been hanging out, causing boats to seek other locations with calmer seas but not quite as good production. Top marlin boat was Pisces Shambala for releasing seven striped marlin at the Golden Gate for Brad Kline & friends from Bethesda, Maryland – all caught on live mackerel
Fishing was really good in Cabo this week and although striped marlin catches edged out the other species as the most likely catch, sheer numbers of tuna beat them by far. This made for great fishing because not only did close to half the boats catch marlin, they could also load up on tuna and even dorado which made a brief comeback
There is no better place to be right now than Cabo, fantastic weather, warmer than average water temperatures and superb fishing in general, with every single boat sent out by Pisces catching fish. Marlin catches were good, but with a full moon the fish were feeding at night and not quite as hungry during the daytime, nevertheless forty five percent, a little under half of the boats, did manage to hook up between one and four striped marlin. Marlin could be found most days at Golden Gate or close by, but could not always be enticed to eat even their favorite bait, mackerel.
One hundred percent of Pisces charters met with success this week as boats found marlin, tuna in large numbers, dorado and even some grouper
Anglers enjoyed spectacular weather whilst the rest of the world froze they enjoyed reeling in marlin & dorado
Weekly round up of fishing news and action in Cabo, great dorado catches, fair marlin and a 420 LB blue too.
