Pisces Fishing Reports
Striped marlin numbers have remained stable this week, with the bite peaking Thursday, on which 48 Marlin were released. A total of 85 Marlin released for the week. Dorado catches numbered 41 for the fleet, a quite noticeable decrease to the past month or so. However, Tuna numbers are still holding strong, with a total of 132 fish. Where we did see a noticeable difference is in other species, mainly our inshore fish like Sierra Mackerel and Roosterfish. Pisces 35’ Valerie was hands down our top inshore producing boat, with 55 fish caught and catch limits respected.
We saw Billfish numbers just about double compared to last week, after Striped Marlin started to pick up over the weekend. Pisces boats released 86 Billfish this week, with only two kept, which did not make it. One of these was a 450 lbs Blue Marlin caught aboard Pisces 60’ Reel Machine. As for Tuna and Dorado, percentages of boats landing them remain the same, although the numbers of fish have lowered slightly. This of course is related to the larger number of billfish caught too. There were 165 Dorado and 236 Tuna caught, respecting catch limits.
Good fishing continues in Cabo, with Dorado and Tuna being the most productive fish still. Total Dorado numbers hit 234 fish, with many of those released to respect catch limits, and Tuna 386. However, we did see Billfish pick up coming into the weekend, almost solely Striped Marlin. We had a total of 56 Marlin caught and released.
Close to 100% catch success rate this week once again, with Dorado being the top producing species. Pisces 28’ Andrea had a great day this Saturday with 14 Dorado caught by 9:30 AM (respecting catch limits with releases). Tuna fishing remains good, with average fish ranging from 20 to 50 lbs, and others over 100 lbs. Billfish have been a little trickier to find, but those that have found them, have been releasing mostly Striped Marlin between 100 and 160 lbs each, but Pisces 35' Bill Collector 2 released a beautiful 400 lbs Blue Marlin too!
