WEATHER: Well the only way to describe it is really hot and being mid summer in Cabo it is nothing new but we are experiencing a much hotter year than previous summers. I have been here a long time, and this is pretty extreme as far as heat goes. Highs are pushing 100 degrees about every day except for today, as I am writing this report we have some overcast skies and its not as hot as it has been but is really humid today. We don’t expect any changes in daytime temperatures so if you’re coming to Cabo expect some pretty warm days.

WATER: Water has changed a bit over last week getting cooler. The temps I noticed on the Tempbreak map was 80 to 83 degrees, which is pretty warm all over. If we could get some decent weather I think the fishing would be off the hook. Please check out Tempbreak to get a good idea on water temperatures.

BILLFISH: Blue Marlin fishing has been hot this past week with some being landed in the 200lb range to 300lbs. The warm water has brought in the Blues but we aren’t really complaining as it has been an action filled week for sport fishing in Cabo. There has been like 1 to 3 Blues being hooked ever day over last week. Most of the big Blues were hitting live bait and lures from the 95 spot to the 1150. The Striped Marlin fishing has been much slower due we think, to the really warm water, as the Stripers prefer the water a little cooler than we have right now. Sailfish fishing has been pretty hot also this past week with multiple fish being fought and landed, of course we always like to release any Billfish we land. Every year about this time when the Tuna and Dorado fishing slow lots of the crews on the sportfishing boats will want to kill there catches, including Marlin. Please DO NOT give in to this request and explain the charter company and the crew before you leave the dock that you are not into killing the Marlin. Explain that you want to release any Marlin or Sailfish caught. Please practice CATCH and RELEASE for your kids and grandkids have the same experiences as you and your family now.

DORADO: 2 miles offshore some action for Dorado. Dorado fishing really isn’t happening right now and we really aren’t sure when it will kick into gear, its basically a hit and miss deal if you want Dorado. As we have been reporting the Dorado fishing hasn’t really kicked into gear this year or even last year. There has been some caught this past week, and it is better than last week. Most of the fish caught were smaller ones but they are out there and we are happy about that.

SWORDFISH: Hasn’t heard of any caught this week.

WAHOO: Not to many reported over this past week.

TUNA: : A few Tuna caught while we were fishing for Marlin with lures. There was one Tuna landed at around 70lbs but the rest were like football size fish.

INSHORE: Really about the same as last week, lots of Roosters up and arounf the Old Light House. Roosters are still the story if the week if you are inshore fishing. The Old Light House seems to be where the inshore action is happening. So jump into a Panga and head up there you might get in on some smaller game action.
