Another good week of fishing in Cabo, and looks like if you're looking for BIG tuna you should head out on a Sunday? For over a month now, we have caught yellowfin tuna over 150 lbs on every Sunday of the month! This week was no different, with anglers Dan and Kurt from LA, California, landing a 187 pound yellowfin! Marlin action is still ON; with multiple releases at the Finger Bank and up to 4 striped marlin released per boat closer by to Cabo, between the Old Lighthouse and Golden Gate. Smaller game this week included sierra, skipjack, grouper, needlefish and amberjacks.
It’s a successful week of fishing once again for us in Cabo. Yellowfin tuna numbers have risen a bit more and are holding steady, and to our delight, some of the bigger size fish are still around, even if found far offshore. The marlin bite at the Finger Bank keeps going strong and we’re wondering if it will ever let up! We’re not complaining though, as the catches are still in the double digits up there, on average 15 marlin per boat, with especially good days looking at almost 30 stripeys each. Small game this week has included roosterfish and grouper, mostly.
Another beautiful week of fishing in Cabo San Lucas to report here. Successful fishing, no matter what species was targeted, but with higher and more consistent numbers of marlin than any other species. The crews are finding the marlin now very close to Lands End, with the Finger Bank (which we thought was starting to slow) now picking back up as weather has warmed slightly again. Yellowfin tuna still found in decent sizes, ranging from 30 to about 100 lbs each, but with anglers heading about 30 miles out to find them. Scattered dorado catches, and very nice catches of smaller game like grouper, roosterfish, red snapper, sierra mackerel, skipjack and others.
This week’s fishing has maintained itself pretty close to last week’s numbers. Steady tuna and dorado catches, and some anglers targeting other species successfully, such as yellowtail, sierra, triggerfish, and snapper. The marlin have started to make somewhat of a move out of the Finger Bank and we have been finding many this week closer to Lands End, from The Old Lighthouse to Los Arcos. And although the Finger Bank fishing has still been successful t it’s no longer consistent numbers of marlin topping 30+ per boat, but more of an average of 8 -15 marlin caught per boat; which is still impressive and of course very fun.
