WEATHER: HOT, HOT and HOTTER that is just the way it is here in Cabo now with about everyday pushing the 100 degree mark and lows in the mid 70,s. It seems the last 2 summers have been hotter than normal that I remember and I have been here a long time. Some days have been a little cloudy that has made for really humid weather with not a lot of storms down south. It seems we have been pretty lucky so far.

WATER: Well some storms have come within about 300 miles off our coast has churned up the water along with some swells coming in bringing in lots of green, warm water close to shore with not much change in temperature. The whole area is blanketed in a warm bathtub like water with fishing not being to bad. The Striped Marlin which prefer a little cooler water are not round like normal but the Blue Marlin are here in good numbers and this everything to do with our warm water temperatures. (Please check out  Tempbreak to get a good idea on water temperatures).

BILLFISH: Blue Marlin fishing continues to be just ok this past week. It seems the fish have moved up to the Pacific side where the water has been somewhat cooler, around San Jamie Banks and the Migrino area. Most of the Blues have been landed with lures and the Striped Marlin on live bait. The Striped Marlin action has been decnt also but we were getting better results last week. We have had decent numbers of Sailfish this past week and this continued now for the last 3 weeks, with good Sailfish numbers being caught and released. So if you’re into Blue Marlin you had better get to Cabo, as this year has been really good and we think it will continue through October.

DORADO: Fishing for Dorado was not happening this past week with very few if any being reported. It has been pretty disappointing the last 2 years for Dorado action as it ha been pretty bad. We think this might have something to do with El Nino this year but really not sure what is going on. We do know we need to practice limits, laws and conservation and keep any Japanese fisherman out of here with their nets.

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

WAHOO: Yes a few landed over this past week at Gray Rock on jet heads so if your into Wahoo try that area over the next few days.

TUNA: Well, there has been some action on the Tuna we landed one tipping the scales at 298lbs and another using the kite that was around 149lbs. Kite fishing has been proving to be good for Tuna up and around the San Jamie Banks. Most of the Tuna are scattered out so you normally have to run away to get to them but if you reach them you mite catch a whopper.

INSHORE: Rooster Fish are what is happening inshore. There is a bit of green water closer to shore so that hasn’t helped really, but all in all it is mostly Rooster action from San Jose all the way to the Pacific side around San Jamie Banks. Some Skip Jacks are hitting also with some good numbers being reported. There has been Sailfish reported caught inshore also on Pangas so it mite be worth grabbing a Panga and going out for a 5 hour excursion to see what happens inshore.
