JC Sportfishing Cabo Fishing Report November 8th

Date Published:

WEATHER: Really nice weather over the last week. Highs in the mid 80,s and lows in the mid 60,s to low 70,s. It is hard to beat this weather considering the very how summer we had this year. It has been relaly hot all year and haven’t had much of  winter over the last 2 years.

WATER: Well the water has been cooling down some and we expect it to continue to cool over the next few days. It has had a effect on the fishing it seems when the water cools some we are seeing more action.

BILLFISH: The Striped Marlin and Sailfish fishing have been good all week. It has been pretty consistent for the last month on these 2 species so we really cant complain. Most charters will hook into some type of Billfish. If you go up around the Light House and head toward the Margarita area, about 2 miles offshore, you will run into some Sailfish and Striped Marlin. We had lots of luck using lures and live bait their.

DORADO: The Dorado fishing was better this past week and we were going crazy gang busters the first part of the week, and then it took a dive. About 150 miles north of us, up around Mag Bay they have been having a Dorado bite off the hook. We are hoping it gets better here in Cabo with the cooling water temperatures but we sure don’t need any of that green alge bloom which will really slows the bite down. I am thinking that this warm water we have in the area is just too much for them and they are staying away. We haven’t seen really too much good Dorado action all year as it has been pretty much hit and miss.

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

WAHOO: The Wahoo fishing has slowed over the past week with really not the numbers we were seeing but still ok.

TUNA: The Tuna fishing is really the story of the week with the Western Outdoors Tuna Jackpot Tournament taking place this past week starting on the 4th of November and wrapping up on the 7th. We understand that there wasn’t a lot of fish caught for the tournament with only like 20 qualifying fish able to make the tournament. We also have had lots of Tuna Seiners in the area before the tournament started and all the while the tournament was going on, and you really have to ask yourself a question of why these boats are in the area during a tournament which promotes tourism, and catches a fraction of the fish that these Tuna Seiners haul in during their stay here. We would like to ask Mexico a question as to why this is allowed to happen? And where is the line drawn as to commercial fishing in some of the richest fishing grounds in all of Mexico, and for that matter all the world. We are asking everyone through Facebook, Whats Up or any social Platform you can use to get the word out about the injustice of commercial fishing boats basically raping this area of fish, and any other type of sea life that gets wrapped in their fishing nets. This  should not only apply to this area, but anywhere in the world where commercial fishing and government are working together to make nothing but money $$$ from the sea. So we are asking everyone to speak up about this problem and do and talk to who you can to stop these practices.

INSHORE: Mostly some small Dorado and some Sailfish close to shore with in a mile of the beach in some areas.
