May 25 to be “Sportfishing Day” for Cabo

Date: 7/5/2017

From 2018, May 25 will be officially recognised in BCS as “Sport Fishing Day”

The waters around Los Cabos are teeming with game fish:

That is no idle boast! Neither is the title “Marlin Capital Of The World” misplaced. Where else can you expect to catch double figures of marlin in a single day? But there is a lot more than marlin to catch...

Jc Sportfishing Cabo Fishing Report 24 July 2017

Date Published:

As the Admiral Seas It

Fishing Report: 7/17/17 to 7/24/17

Stop By Our Office for up to date Fishing Report.

Blue Marlin Fishing, Right Now!

700lb Blue MarlinCaught!

Blues Weighing in at 250lb to 400lbs

What a Difference a Week Makes!

Sailfish Action getting Hot!

Tuna Fishing good at Beginning of Week!

Striped Marlin Fishing is Good Also!

Inshore is Just SO SO with Roosters!

Dorado Fishing Just SO SO!

One Wahoo Caught this Week!

Warm Water Temps Here to Stay!!

WEATHER: Well, it wasn’t too bad over the last week with some sunny days. It has been cloudy about half of the time with overcast skies. We did get a little rain on a couple different occasions but nothing major. It has been pretty humid and hot that’s for sure as it feels like September here now.

WATER: Mostly warm water in our area now on both sides the Pacific and Sea of Cortez side. The temps I noticed on the Tempbreak map was 82 to 88 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: Well the Blue Marlin fishing has been been really Hot with our boats hooking and releasing many big Blues over the past week. Some of the Blues we caught were tipping the scales at 700lb, 240lb, 270lb, 400lb with many hooked but not landed. The fish are taking lures and live bait, along with small Tuna and Skipjack. They seem to be spread out all over the place from the 95 to the Old Light House. We are catching both Blue Marlin and Striped Marlin as I write this report. Warm water has moved into the area and I think this is bringing the Marlin in especially the Blues. So they are here but they are spread out all over the place from the Pacific side to Sea of Cortez side.

DORADO: We are having great fishing but the sad part out of all of this is that the Dorado action isn’t happening to much. We are picking up a few small ones here and there but really nothing to speak of. The Dorado fishing should be in full swing right now and it isn’t. We think it could be the fact that the commercial boats have been netting the Sardines up at Mag Bay and using the Sardines for fertilizer. The Dorado follow the Sardines from up north down to Cabo so, if there isn’t any Sardines there is no Dorado.

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

WAHOO: I did hear of one Wahoo being caught this past week.

TUNA: Great week for Tuna this past week with some really big ones being landed. We have been having some decent Tuna action with lots of football size fish to about 20lbs. Most fish are being landed with cedar plugs and hootchies. So, we have had a good week as far as Tuna go and we know some of the other fleets did have a good Tuna week also. So, you do have to work for them but there is lots of big Tuna in the area to be taken. The 1150 all the way up to the San Jamie Banks is the hot areas.

INSHORE: Some decent Rooster fish action this past week inshore with lots of Skip Jacks and even some Red Snapper in the rocks just off of the Solmar hotel. If you use some cut bait drop into the rocks at about 40ft you have a good chance of landing some decent size Red Snappers and Grouper.
