JC Sportfishing Cabo Fishing Report Jan 19th

Date Published:

WEATHER: We have had a few overcast days this week with a couple days of light rain even but not a big deal. Lots of this past week was overcast and today was also but it isn’t cold by no means actually very pleasant with highs in the ladder 70,s to low 80,s and lows in the lower 60,s to high 50,s.

WATER:  Well, this roller coaster water temperatures have left us wondering, but it ain’t all a bad thing. According to Tempbreak water has warmed to 74 to 78 degrees and that is a positive for the Marlin and Dorado fishing. I noticed on the map that the water is much cooler up inside the Se of Cortez compared to right here at Lands End. We will take whatever we can get as it is all good to us in this neck of the woods.

BILLFISH: The Marlin fishing has been just ok and not a bunch of fish being caught but they are landing a few. The areas in which they are landing Billfish are up in and around the Light House to Rancho Migrino and their landing them on live bait and lures. It seems most fish are feeding on the surface and pitching bait to them has been effective. The Mrlin fishing has definitely slowed, but with the warmer weather here again, most guys have started to go after the Dorado again.

DORADO: The Dorado fishing has been getting better with the warmer water. Ranch Migrino to up inside the Golden Gate has been good for Dorado on Ballyhoo, live bait and lures. I think if you book a boat this week you will have a more than average chance to catch a few Dorado!!!

WAHOO: Wahoo fishing is still pretty good using rapalas and jet heads inshore from Ranch Migrino to Golden Gate. I am expecting this to continue with this 74 to 78 degree water in the area. We are on a roll as far as Wahoo goes with a few straight weeks of reported landings.

TUNA: If you run about 10 miles  outside the Golden Gate offshore you will most likely run into some Tuna as there has been reports of Yellowfins being landed. All reports that I have heard of being blind strikes using cedar plugs, king busters and a little on live bait but not lots of fish.

INSHORE: The inshore angling has been really good over this past week with all the Sierras you want from the Light House up to Rancho Migrino with most being landed on small rapalas, hootchies and striped bait. The Roosters on live bait in front of Solmar all the way up to the Light House has been good and even some solid reports of  big Red Snapper along the beach by pitching live bait into the rocks but it really depends on how big the swells are if you can do this or not.
