Pisces Fishing Reports
The numbers are down and we had really few boats out this week. The fishing grounds have also been extremely spread out, it was difficult to find one particular spot that worked well. To make matters more difficult we had rain at the beginning of the week which messes up the water afterwards, with its large amounts of rainwater flowing out to see from previously dry riverbeds. And we also had a full moon, which leads to a lot of the fish feeding at night and not wanting to take lures or bait in the daytime hours.
We saw a definite change in the direction of fishing this week, as the last couple of weeks were mostly focused around the yellowfin tuna and blue marlin action for Pisces Fleet, we saw striped marlin catches increase, as well as sailfish. Fishing grounds were variable throughout with more boats venturing out to the Pacific side. Starting off our week the Pisces Tracy Ann had a spectacular day for a group of anglers from Houston, Texas. Captain Julio Castro put them on three striped marlin (released), two yellowfin tuna, one dorado and four skipjacks.
This week our main event was the near pass by Tropical Storm Javier, that had Cabo’s port closed on Monday the 8th of August. No boats were able to go out that day, and we saw some nice rain. Something that our desert landscape is always thirsty for is a good soaking of rain by a summer storm. Our week started of with a few different boats landing blue marlin and some sailfish. The Pisces Adriana, captained by Nicolas Winkler caught and released a sailfish.
This week saw overall catches go down, with overcast and cloudy weather on many days and summer highs in the 80’s and 90’s. The 30th of July saw the boats catching lots of blue marlin, as well as striped marlin and a sailfish, showcasing the wide array of billfish available in Cabo’s summer to those anglers that can bear the heat.
