Gordo Banks Pangas March 2nd 2013

Date Published:

March 2, 2013 Anglers – The month of February is now over, there was lots of wind throughout the period, this last week was no exception, as northerly winds up to 20 mph prevailed. This created very choppy ocean conditions offshore and limited options on where anglers were able to comfortably fish. Water temperatures were now ranging from 69 to 72 degrees throughout the zone. March is the time when we can see have unpredictable winds, most of the time from the north, but usually the worst of the winds are over with and we start to see warmer and calmer days. This is what you would call a seasonal transition period, winter to spring, great time of year to visit the area while the climate is so ideal and there will be a wide variety of fishing opportunities available, from offshore, inshore, as well as bottom action. Crowds remain light at this time, but we are starting to see the first wave of spring breakers arrive. Whales remain very active throughout local waters, this is the final period now, as these mammals will be heading north soon. Schools of mackerel and sardinetas are now gone from the grounds off of San Jose del Cabo, there are some caballito on these same spots and sardinas are being netting off the beach stretches near San Luis. Ballyhoo are also available for purchase and have been an option for enticing dorado. This week there were reports of yellowfin tuna to 30 pounds being found in good numbers on the Jaime Banks, a long run for most charters and too far for San Jose fleets. Offshore marlin action slowed during the period, scattered fish, more billfish found off of the Pacific than towards the Sea of Cortez. This is the month we normally we would see the striped marlin moving in this direction, so we do expect to see this same pattern. No tuna found on the Gordo Banks this week and it was the same story on San Luis Bank, where the persistent winds made this area off limits most days.
