Pisces Fishing Reports
We had a big moon this week, which meant some tough fishing during the phase when it was full and the day leading up to it and just after, nevertheless when the fishing was on, it was red hot. Added to this were the abundant tuna catches which were a welcome bonus most days. We were again surprised by the number of blue marlin and sailfish, which combined, outnumbered the catches of striped marlin, something we have not seen in years. Biggest blue marlin for us this week was a 350 lb’er released aboard Pisces 35 ft. Cabo Listo, by Bryan Brewer from Boston, Mass, just outside the Golden Gate, where he also released two striped marlin
BILLFISH: We had an excellent week here in Cabo with plenty of billfish action; in fact these were the most likely catch to be encountered when out on a charter. The surprising thing though, was the number of sailfish, which outnumbered the marlin this week. Consistent blue marlin catches, also added to the success this week. The blue marlin are not huge with fish seldom being over 300 lbs., nevertheless we had a lot of first ever blue marlin catches for different anglers, who commented on the difference in strength between these and the more commonly caught striped marlin.
