Anglers –

At this time the weather conditions are
calm, warm and humid. Tropical
Storm Kiko is spinning off to the west,
far away from any contact with
land. Always the time of year when
everyone is closely monitoring tropical
storm develop from the south, this is
also now the five year anniversary of
the devastating Hurricane Odile. We are
now watching developing of a new
system developing below Acapulco,
hopefully it moves on a path away from
Southern Baja, we will know by late
next week. With ocean water temperature
now in the 83 to 86 degree range this
can be favorable conditions for
storms to gather strength.

Light crowds of tourists now, kind of
an off season now, but right around
the corner will be the busiest Fall
period. Local charters have been
fishing the grounds from off f Red
Hill, Palmilla, to the Gordo Banks,
Twenty Five Spot and Iman Bank.
Supplies of sardinas were more limited
this
week, being found mainly schooling off
the beach stretches towards San
Luis. Caballito, Ballyhoo and slabs of
squid have been other bait options,
also lots of black skipjack and bolito
on high spots. Highlight of the
action has been the yellowfin tuna,
best spot near the Twenty Five area,
drift fishing with strips of quid or
sardinas were the most successful
methods used. Sizes ranged from 20 to
70 lb. some days tough to land one or
two, other days five or more were
possible. A bit finicky, as the
majority
of the fleet is concentrating on these
grounds every day, including the
charters from Buna Vista area.

Dorado were still scattered through
these inshore grounds, though not in
the numbers of previous weeks and again
most of these fish are juvenile
sized, under 5 lb., an occasional
respectable sized. Wahoo were in the
area, no consistent bite for these
elusive fish, one day we will see a
handful of fish, the next day nothings,
they get more sluggish in these
warmer water conditions.

Off the bottom there was a mix of
snapper, pargo species, an occasional
amberjack, dogtooth snapper, bonito and
cabrilla. Using yo-yo jigs and
various whole and cut baits off of the
many rock piles, this bottom action
is not producing many numbers of fish,
all top quality eating and a few
quality specimens..

Marin action was spread out and we did
not have many anglers that were
targeting the billfish, as the tuna
action seemed more popular. We did see
a couple of black, blue and striped
marlin accounted for, as well as
sailfish.

Off the shoreline, surf anglers
reported a couple of snook and
tripletail
catches, these are the times when
prized species can be found close to
the
shoreline, you have to know what you
are doing and put in consistent efforts

*T*he combined sportfishing fleet
launching out of the panga area from
Puerto Los Cabos Marina sent out an
estimated 55 charters for the week and
anglers reported an approximate fish
count of: 2 black marlin, 3 striped
marlin, 3 sailfish, 2 blue marlin, 110
dorado, 14 wahoo, 115 yellowfin
tuna, 3 dogtooth snapper, 8 leopard
grouper, 25 Mexican bonito, 14 yellow
snapper, 6 barred pargo, 3 pompano, 9
amberjack, 2 surgeonfish, 2
roosterfish and 28 triggerfish.



Good Fishing, Eric

Anglers –

September 8, 2019

Tropical weather conditions now upon
us, we are seeing on and off sporadic
afternoon thunder showers, which are
common during this month. The passing
of Hurricane Juliette was barely felt,
as it had followed a path far off to
the west, humidity did increase and
there was more afternoon southern
breeze. Overall ocean conditions were
favorable, moderate swells, though
the wind did pick up later in the day.
No new storm system on the horizon
at this time, though with ocean water
temperatures now ranging 80 to 86
degrees, we do need to watch forecasts
closely the next few weeks. Light
crowds of visitors now, normal slack
period, as children are back in school
and summer season winds down.

In recent days there have been quality
sized sardinas being netted and
brought down from the north, anglers
are meeting these bait vendors on
grounds such as La Fortuna and Iman
Bank. Other bait options were slabs of
squid, caballito, ballyhoo, as well as
bolito and skipjack found on
offshore grounds. These same grounds is
where the most consistent action
has been found for the past month and
charters from East Cape are even
making the long two hour run daily,
guess they must have no better
opportunities in closer proximity.

Main action has been for dorado and
yellowfin tuna, an occasional wahoo,
limited mix of bottom species and some
scattered billfish action.
Significant boat pressure on these same
grounds and combined with large
concentrations of natural food sources,
the yellowfin tuna proved to be
more finicky from day to day. Best
chances for the tuna was with sardinas
and strips of squid, a few also
striking on larger baitfish. Catches
ranged
from one tuna, to over five per boat,
sizes ranged from 15 to 70 lb., a lot
of fish in the 20 to 60 lb. class.

More numbers of dorado were found a bit
closer to shore than where the
yellowfin bite was, still big numbers
of very small sized dorado, with a
smaller percentage of keeper sized
dorado in the mix. Sardinas for bait
was
best bet, also trolling hoochies and
feathers, as well as drift fishing
with strips of squid.

Off the bottom the highlights were a
few hog sized amberjack, up to 95 lb.,
one 57 kilo grouper hauled up by local
hand liner. A scattering of pargo,
pompano and triggerfish rounded out
bottom action. A few smaller sized
roosterfish were found trolling inshore
stretches near the local marina.

Marlin anglers were limited, as more
anglers were now targeting the tuna,
though a couple of black marlin hook
ups were reported, big fish that
ended up being lost after hours of
battling. Some smaller sized blue and
striped marlin were also reported, no
big numbers, but every day these
billfish are being encountered.

*T*he combined sportfishing fleet
launching out of the panga area from
Puerto Los Cabos Marina sent out an
estimated 68 charters for the week and
anglers reported an approximate fish
count of: 6 striped marlin, 5 blue
marlin, 275 dorado, 8 wahoo, 145
yellowfin tuna, 6 leopard grouper, 14
Mexican bonito, 15 yellow snapper, 8
barred pargo, 8 pompano, 15 amberjack,
12 roosterfish, 4 jack crevalle and 38
triggerfish.



Good Fishing, Eric

Anglers –

September 1, 2019

Since the passing of Tropical Storm IVO
last week, where the Los Cabos
region did receive some much needed
rainfall without too high of wind,
weather patterns have been stable,
though just now there is a new T S
Juliette brewing to the southwest, this
system is forecast to follow a path
further away from the Baja Peninsula
new storms developing at this time.
The next three weeks is historically
the time frame with the highest chance
of hurricanes striking Southern Baja,
so we are all hoping that this year
we do not have any disasters. We have
felt a very slight cooling early
morning, but days have been warm and
humid with heat index over 100 degrees.

Starting last weekend there was decent
action for yellowfin tuna up to 100
lb. on the Iman Bank. Through this week
the bite became more sporadic, lots
of boat pressure on this one area since
this has been location where the
best chances of catching nice fish has
been. Boats from as far away as the
East Cape are making the long run south
to fish these same grounds. Drift
fishing with strips of squid was the
main deal, some limited availability
of sardinas, the tuna also were hitting
on the live caballito. Anglers were
feeling fortunate to land just one
yellowfin, a handful had as many as
three, and average size were 35 to 60
lb. anglers had better success using
leader material of 50 to 60 lb., many
of the larger tuna were lost after
extended battles. Also one black marlin
estimated to be well over 400 lb.
was battled for over three hours before
finally being lost due to lighter
leader.

Dorado were found a little closer to
shore than were the tuna, off of
Cardon, La Fortuna, Punta Gorda, many
juvenile sized dorado in the area,
had to search to find any over 10 lb.
Overall numbers of dorado were down
from previous weeks. Wahoo are in the
area, as they were seen free swimming
and feeding in the chum, though these
fish proved finicky and only a few
were actually landed, these fish can
become sluggish when water temperature
are over 80 degrees.

Off the bottom there was limited action
for yellow snapper, red snapper,
cabrilla, amberjack and triggerfish,
more snapper on yo-yo jigs early in
the day, after that tough pickings.
Only a few roosterfish found trolling
closer to shore, smaller sized, mixed
in was an occasional jack crevalle,
not much inshore trolling this time of
year.

Billfish action also slowed down, more
smaller sized striped marlin, a
couple of larger black marlin that were
lost after long battles. Weather is
looking good for the time being, slight
swells, warm blue water with lots
of baitfish in the area so we are
optimistic that reports will improve
soon.

*T*he combined sportfishing fleet
launching out of the panga area from
Puerto Los Cabos Marina sent out an
estimated 62 charters for the week and
anglers reported an approximate fish
count of: 5 striped marlin, 3 blue
marlin, 185 dorado, 3 wahoo, 70
yellowfin tuna, 6 leopard grouper, 26
Mexican bonito, 14 yellow snapper, 4
barred pargo, 1 amberjack, 2 dogtooth
snapper, 3 roosterfish, 5 jack crevalle
and 38 triggerfish.

Anglers –

August 25, 2019

The week started off with calm weather
patterns, though far off of Southern
Mexico there was a low pressure system
that was developing, this season has
been very quiet for tropical storm
strikes on the Los Cabos region, so
everyone was anxious, watching
forecasts closely. Starting Thursday
morning
through Sat. there were local Port
closures due to stormy ocean
conditions,
though this system was name Tropical
Storm Ivo stayed over 300 miles away,
off to the west, paralleling the Baja
coast towards the north. Seas were up
to three meters, sporadic wind gusts
ranging 15 to 30 mph, scattered
thunder showers, with several inches of
measurable rainfall received and
even more in isolated areas. Great to
actually final receive the rainfall,
though also unfortunate for anglers who
were not able to fish during shut
down conditions. Ever ting does look
clear for this coming week.

This was a shortened week for
sportfishing operations, though the
first
half of the week was decent, there were
caballito, ballyhoo, moon fish and
slabs of squid available for bait. Also
large schools of baitfish on the
same popular fishing grounds, bolito,
small skipjack, etc…Main target
species were dorado, yellowfin tuna and
billfish. Not much off the bottom
except some early morning jig action
for various pargo, cabrilla and a few
amberjack. Most charters were targeting
the surface action, with clean blue
water being found close to shore and
ocean currents in the 80 to 84 degree
range. The majority of the charters
were working areas from off of Palmilla
Point to the Gordo Banks, Iman and San
Luis, a few venturing to Vinorama.

Yellowfin tuna were congregated around
the Iman Bank and to the inside,
though getting them the bite was not
easy, seemed he best chances came
early in the day, while drift fishing
strips of squid, these tuna are
finicky, lots of natural food source to
gorge on and also becoming wiser to
the boat pressure every day, fleets as
far away as Buena Vista are fishing
these same grounds. Most of the
yellowfin tuna were in the 20 to 65
lb.,
chances at larger though. Anglers were
fortunate to land one or two. More
numbers of dorado, while trolling
various lures and baits, not as
numerous
as previous weeks, the majority were
juvenile sized, with many were being
released, a handful of nicer sized
keeper dorado in the mix. Also even an
occasional wahoo lurking on these same
areas, no numbers, but they are in
the area.

There were now chances at very large
marlin, this is the time of year when
the blue and black marlin are found in
local waters, attracted by all of
the food fish, such as black skipjack,
bolito, dorado and smaller yellowfin
tuna. There were at least a couple of
black marlin up to 400 lb. landed
early this week, quite a few blue
marlin as well, most were in the 120 to
250 lb. range, striped marlin were
hanging around, many small 50 to 70 lb.
stripers, trolling lures or bait was
the main techniques, on the high spots
of covering open blue water.

So we are hoping for more days on the
water with better weather and
steadily improving action this coming
week

*T*he combined sportfishing fleet
launching out of the panga area from
Puerto Los Cabos Marina sent out an
estimated 38 charters for the week and
anglers reported an approximate fish
count of: 2 black marlin, 9 striped
marlin, 7 blue marlin, 115 dorado, 4
wahoo, 22 yellowfin tuna, 4 leopard
grouper, 7 Mexican bonito, 5 yellow
snapper, 2 barred pargo, 2 pompano, 2
amberjack, 2 dogtooth snapper, 2
roosterfish, 6 jack crevalle and 24
triggerfish.
