Pisces Fishing Reports
Fishing this week was a little bit less successful than last, with 79% of boats catching fish versus the almost perfect 98% catch success rate the last two weeks. Striped marlin was the main staple this week, although most plentiful of all was the other species category. The types of fish caught were also more varied, with greater inshore and smaller game fish being caught, too many different species to name them all in this report. Some of those species were red snapper, sheep’s head, grouper, sea bass, ladyfish and sierra mackerel.
We saw an overall decrease in boats trips this week, and numbers weren’t as impressive as of late, the fishing can’t be spectacular forever. Although with that being said, the boats that did go out ended up having some great catches. The main attraction as per ever was striped marlin this week, with fewer dorado catches than we had been seeing although it varied throughout the week. There were a lot of nice smaller game fish caught, with grouper, sea bass and jack crevalle as well as an odd wahoo or thresher shark (not really that small a game).
For the first full week of December we saw dorado at the beginning of the week, then tapering off into more of a striped marlin bite, we saw a very high catch success rate this week, with 98% of boats landing fish. Starting us off with the largest number of dorado was the Pisces Adriana. Captain Nicolas Winkler put these clients from Phoenix, Arizona on 10 dorado out at Pozo de Cota. We also saw a lot more small game this week, with a healthy mix of jack crevalle, roosterfish, grouper, and amberjack. The panga La Gloria managed to catch and release six roosterfish of around 10-25lbs for a group of anglers visiting from England.
This week we saw air temperatures decrease a bit and it definitely feels like winter has arrived, even though our winter is mild by all accounts compared to other places to the North. Striped marlin catches remain consistent and for those willing to spend the money on extra fuel, the Finger Bank near Todos Santos remains the top location. Incredible double-digit catches of marlin and dorado were had in that area. Dorado was the top fish caught this week, with nearly 80% of boats landing them, yellowfin tuna catches have continued to dwindle and in there place we’ve seen an increasing number of wahoo being boated. We also saw the odd blue marlin and jack crevalle.
