Los Cabos Tuna Jackpot Tournament


A harbor full of sportfishing boats of every size imaginable – literally a “field of dreams” for anglers from around the world – with the Los Cabos Tesoro Hotel, headquarters for Los Cabos Tuna Jackpot Tournament, dominating its corner of the IGY Marina.


More staff and sponsors are arriving each day as preparations steadily continue for the “Big Show” that begins Wednesday on the malecon in front of the Tesoro.


Unpacking the countless boxes filled with sponsor giveaways, tournament T-shirts, bags, hats, fishing rods, rod cases, lures, line, hooks and more.


Meanwhile, team entries continue to roll in, pushing the total somewhere north of 153. Tuna info trickles in, even though both local and visiting anglers who have been pre-fishing have become tight-lipped … reluctant to share their findings with the first day of fishing only a few days away. Last night at Solomon’s Landing, the noisy debates centered on where the big one might be found; would it be caught chunking on the Gordo or flying a kite among the porpoise offshore.


Tuesday is set-up day for the registration area (shown above on the malecon in its “before” condition prior to the weigh-scale, a dozen or so canopies, tables, ramp to the loading docks being put in place.)

After the finishing touches on Wednesday, we will get the party started with registration beginning at 2 pm. SEE YOU THEN!!!

WEATHER: We are still hot and humid here in Cabo. It seems this lingering humidity has been hard to shake. It should be cooling this time of year because it will November 1 tomorrow and it shows no signs of cooling off to much. There has been a slight shift the last couple days as morning seem to be a little fresher, but not much to tell you the truth. We will see over the next few days if we will see a little bit of winter here in Cabo.


WATER: The water temperatures have been much warmer than we expected this time of year and it is due to La Nina the after effects of El Nino. The warm water off course has effected all our fishing patterns in which in normal times we would be seeing more Striped Marlin action than we have been seeing. There are 2 sides to this story since the Blues and Blacks seem to thrive more in the warmer water, so our action for them has been better than expected. We have had a huge Blue Marlin season this year with many Marlin caught and released. Please check out  Tempbreak to get a good idea on water temperatures.


BILLFISH: Well, it has still been strong for the Blues and Blacks since the warm water is still in the area. I will say that the Striped Marlin bite hasn’t kicked in lately due to the warm water, we think. If you are looking fro Stripers if you go to the pacific side up and around the Old Light House offshore 1 to 3 miles you will probably run into a decent bite. The colder water is up there so we have been having reports that this is the area for Stripers. The Blues and Blacks are still in our area and someone fishing now has a great chance to catch a big fish right now.


DORADO: It has been darn slow for Dorado compared to a couple weeks ago when it was hot. They are still catching some but not in the numbers we were seeing. Right now, we have been seeing some caught in the 15 to 30lbs range with quite a few smaller ones being caught inshore and maybe a mile off shore.


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

WAHOO: It hasn’t been to bad at all with some Wahoo in the 35 to 65lbs range being landed by some other boats in the fleet. Jet heads, Rapallas and purple lures seem to be working pretty decent.


TUNA: Well it has been kinda slow for Tuna and we have the tournament right upon us, which I don’t know if its good news or not. As, I have been reporting the commercial Tuna boats are in the area doing what they do best and that is raping our waters. We are hoping for a good Tuna turn out for the Tournament and we hope to see them commercial boats dis appear soon.


INSHORE: The inshore fishing has just been ok, nothing special with some small Dorado, Sailfish and Amberjack are what is happening. There has been some good Amberjack action reported using iron. Small Tuna on sardines has been good inshore if you can find the sardines. From Grey Rock to the Pump House has been the area for decent Tuna and even Sailfish action using ballyhoo. Some small Dorado every once in a while have been landed.

It might be worth grabbing a Panga and going out for a 5 hour excursion to see what happens inshore.
