WEATHER: Been very nice all week and we can really feel the heat starting to set in over the last week and I think its going to be a hot summer in Cabo. So, whats new. We are not looking for any storm activity right now but as we get into summer we will get some tropical activity. Although, I think we had enough with Hurricane ODILE year before last. That was enough to last a lifetime, but for now we are having great weather.

WATER: Pretty much the same as last week as far as the water temps go.The water right outside Cabo Harbor is right around 72 to 74 degrees and actually pretty nice. Pacific side up and around the Finger Baja where it was dipping down to 69 degrees is still cold up there and it is like night and day compared to the Pacific side and the Cortez side. This link which will show you water temperatures for the southern half of Baja. 

BILLFISH: Marlin fishing has picked just stayed about the same, with good days and bad days. Lots of fish stacked up at the 1150 area and most of them are Marlin. Pitching live bait at them along with lures and slow trolled ballyhoo has been working very well. We did have one boat brave the pacific side and there was 3 boys aboard who managed to land 3 sharks, and 1 out of the 3 boys did score a Marlin which is really cool as we love to see the kids land some nice fish. The boys also landed 1 Wahoo. None of the other boats wanted to brave the pacific side that day so the boys made a good choice to over there. CONGRATULATIONS GUYS!!

SHARK FISHING: We have been catching lots of sharks this past week, Bull Sharks and Hammerheads are lots of fun to catch, but it isn’t the season for them so we are catching them are releasing them. Lots of fun be we have to release.

DORADO: Dorado has taken a turn from last week with just a few caught this past week. Some of the Dorado taken this week were very nice fish and the Light House was a good area for Dorado using lures and slow trolled bait. Not a lot, but it is getting better and we are going into Dorado season now.

WAHOO: There are Wahoo still being caught at Grey Rock on jet heads, rapalas and dead cabilltos being slow trolled. They were catching the same amount of Wahoo as last week, but they are still catching this past week. Looks like a lot of guys have been spear fishing in the area and really I don’t even know if that’s legal or not? I heard one boat took 33 Wahoo and another boat 7 and at this point I am wondering where the fish cops are as it seems they have no problem messing with the sport fishing boats but not guys out spear fishing. The fish cops are always checking our limits, but they’re never around when they are actually needed. Anyway, there is Wahoo in the area.

TUNA: A long run to get to the Tuna as it seems they are out like 50 miles. They have been showing up at the doughnut, but not in big numbers, although there were a few taken on cedar plugs and striker kings with all being blind strikes as there were no porpoise in the area.

 INSHORE: Small Tuna and even some Sierras lately. Action inshore has just been ok this past week. There was some Dorado and Rooster Fish. The Roosters are averaging 12lb to 20lb and being landed from the Solmar to the Light House. Trolling live bait has been what there hitting so remember to buy a lot of live bait if you're fishing Roosters.
