WEATHER: Well, right now the weather is pretty good with sunny days and breezy evenings. We have had some very nice weather over the past week. I was out last night and we had some pretty strong north winds that were pretty cool, looks as if they were coming off the Pacific. I think in the afternoons if your fishing on the pacific side expect some rough rides as it has been blowing pretty good in the afternoons. Really as far as temperatures its been really warm in the day time with mostly sunny days and cooler evenings.

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: The Marlin fishing has been decent over this past week with a few Marlin being landed. The 1150 seems to be the hot spot with most fish being landed in this area of our fishing grounds. Our own Bob Marlin had 2 Marlin and our boat Bite Me also was hot landing 2 Marlin for the week. There was one day in which we hooked 3 Marlin and landed 1 of them. The fish seem to be biting live bait, lures and ballyhoo.

DORADO: A few more fish starting to show up this week with most being in pairs and no major schools to mention in the area. It hasn’t quite kicked in but it is getting better, sooner or later! There are a few being caught, but it isn’t like it’s off the hook, but we are optimistic over this next week for things to pick up.

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

WAHOO: Fishing for Wahoo has been very good all week. We have been using planer boards, Mararuders and Rapalas and we did land 8 fish from 2 of our boats, some pretty good action.

TUNA: The bite for Tuna hasn’t been any thing to brag about over the last week, t seems most fish being caught are very small and you have to be lucky to even find them. The guys who are finding them are using cedar plugs and king busters.

INSHORE: Some Groupers and Snappers being landed using cut bait and fishing close to shore. The Rooster fishing has been going off up and around the Light Hose on the pacific. Lots of 20lb to 40lb fish being landed close to the beach due to the fact that the wind was pushing the bait up against the beach and the Roosters were having a field day on the beach. Pangas are having a pretty rough ride this week on the pacific side, but for the hardcore fisherman they love that stuff. So if your into getting wet and sloppy in a Panga head on out cause the action is good inshore. Also, some guys have been catching Skip Jack and Jack Crevail close to shore.
