Pisces Fishing Reports
This week was very slow for billfish, though this is not to say they are not in the area rather that they are spread out and are not hungry. For instance one boat reported spotting marlin very close to shore, then five miles off the lighthouse, then 35 miles offshore, then two more jumping when they were on their way back in, all this in the same day, but despite throwing bait to a couple of them, there were no takers. They doubled back for the two jumpers but these marlin had sunk out of sight. We also had a big moon this week so fish were feeding at night.
This week we can report a definite slow down in marlin catches as the fishing season in Cabo changes bringing colder water and windy days. Some days it was too rough to make it up to Golden Gate were captains suspected marlin could be found but the bumpy ride was just not worth it to some anglers who preferred to stick closer to port and fish for smaller game.
This week we saw a drop on marlin catches down from seventy plus percent last week to forty percent this week, but we are not worried, this is normal for this time of year. In fact we are happy that catches are still as good as they are. As we approach March we expect some wind and water temperatures to drop below 70F which will bring in bountiful catches of smaller game, so for the time being we are enjoying the marlin that we have. Fishing patterns are unpredictable though, so with the water temperature running above average, perhaps the marlin will continue to feed.
