JC Sportfishing Cabo Fishing Report March 9th

Date Published:

WEATHER: It was really nice over the last week. It did rain yesterday in some areas of Los Cabos, actually some pretty good down pours and even some hail in San Jose I hear. Todo Santos and even up towards La Paz got some good down pours, but besides yesterday it has been pretty clear and sunny most days, all over our fishing grounds. Highs are reaching the mid 80,s and lows in the lower to mid 60,s. I hear that in LA it was like almost 90 degrees over the last 2 days. I guess they were having a warm streak but it seems a little early for that right now.
WATER: Well the water is still lingering around 71 to 73 degrees in our whole area, I did notice south of Gordo Banks at the Cabrilla Seamount that there was warmer water in that area quite a ways off shore. There was like a line right there separating the 72 degree water and the 76 degree water. So a little bit of a contrast but it hasn’t changed much since last week in our vicinity.

BILLFISH: Marlin fishing has been pretty off and on all week from the Light House to Rancho Migrino is where fish have been caught and what they are hitting is live bait and lures. All fish are being landed from 1 to 4 miles offshore on the Pacific side. I am not saying we are catching lots of Marlin what I am saying is what we have caught was caught in those areas.
DORADO: Hit and miss this week on Dorado, there has been good days and bad but you know how fishing is we can’t guarantee nothing but being in Cabo you have a pretty good chance of getting some in the boat. 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: A few Wahoo around, but really not a lot. The ones that were caught were using rapalas dragged with Downriggers. I understand this was effective on some occasions this past week.
TUNA: None!!! I haven’t heard of a lot of of Tuna being landed this past week. If you do run into them, I think you will have to run offshore about 25 to 35 miles to maybe run into them if you can find a school of Porpoise.
INSHORE: The inshore fishing has been pretty good for Sierras from the Solmar to te Light House on hootchies and striped bait. The Yellowtail haven’t even showed up this year and normally we are in full swing by now knocking them dead. I don’t know if the water is to warm or what the case is but it hasn’t happened for Yellowtail yet. Afew Red Snappers in the rocks in the Pedregal area I understand.
