Jen Wren Cabo Fishing Report 30th October

East Cape - Old patterns


East Cape weather continues to be unbelievably beautiful.  Seas are calm and water temps remain at 84-85 degrees.  Even though conditions continue to look right the bite has become a little scratchy.  Finding fish has not been hard but getting them to go has.


A volume of yellowfin has been breezing through on inshore high spots and will chow down on anglers chum.  The problem is they are line shy and want nothing to do with bait that has a hook in it.  Wahoo have been playing hardball as well.  Mostly short bites are frustrating anglers.  For some reason it has been the same dance with billfish.  The finicky fish come in the spread for a quick look and sometimes take a quick whack at a lure but hook sets have been below a 50% ratio.

For many years the first ten days of November brought picture perfect weather and was one of my favorite times.  The last few years north winds have arrived in October and temperatures plummeted. It seemed early winter was the new norm.  This year our old patterns have returned. November is knocking on the door and our forecast is for more great weather.


Next week the Los Cabos Tuna Jackpot tournament based in Cabo San Lucas will take place.  It is the largest attended tournament in Baja and all of our boats are entered.  WON headed up by Pat Mc Donald has always done an outstanding job with this event with the theme "fish hard, party harder".  Our whole crew is fired up with anticipation, ready to do some damage and weigh a cow.  It will be a great way to end our season.

Polo on the wire

Never over till it is over, this dorado came unbuttoned just when we were ready to stick 'em.

Got this one to stick

Nice mess of fish

Landed this super cow in June. Now we are looking for a repeat performance

When we find the right fish it will be on the right gear.
