Cabo San Lucas Fishing Report

November 21st – November 27th, 2016 – Be sure to scroll down for actual photos of our catches!


Amigos – Thank you for visiting our fishing report page. I am happy to report that fishing has been very good for the last few weeks. We have had an outstanding Dorado bite, a very good off and on Marlin bite and have seen a decent number of smaller Yellow Fin Tuna and Wahoo. As sea temps continue to drop, we expect good fishing for the next couple of weeks.


Marlin – We saw an off and on Striped Marlin bite again with full day boats doing best here. The Marlin have been very close to Lands End from the Arch to Migrino less than a mile offshore. The bite has been changing with cooler waters and many fished have been landed at the 80 ft mark by using down riggers or weighted live bait. Further off shore we saw some bigger Blues, but those fish have been dropping in numbers. The waters in the Sea of Cortez have been hampered by higher winds and not much activity east this last week. Those boats on full day charters did better with Marlin from Golden to Finger Banks.

Tuna – We have seen a good number of smaller Tuna running around our waters. Most are in the 8 to 15 pound range, biting on live bait and smaller feathers. We had one day last week where there was a large school right off the arch and boats were picking off one after another. Bigger Tuna seemed to scatter further offshore and higher winds in the Sea of Cortez made fishing tough. It is the time of year where hunting for Tuna is a hit and miss game with a little luck needed in the process due to dropping water temps.

Dorado – The Dorado bite has been very, very good amigos. We participated in the 3rd Annual Orsan Dorado Tournament this weekend along with over 100 other boats. Almost all boats had multiple Dorado and the largest being a 29.6 pounder. We weighed a decent 18.5 pound Mahi but had 3 others in the 10 to 15 pound range. We were fishing dead Ballyoo, petroleros and live mackerel. It didn’t really seem to matter though, the fish are almost everywhere from Solmar to Todos Santos along the Pacific coast.  Some boats had over 20 fish strike as large schools were running all weekend.

Wahoo – The Wahoo bite has been steady.  Not huge numbers but we see these fish hit the decks almost everyday. The fish have been craving Ballyhoo and those boats with down riggers have had success dropping to 80-100ft on a higher speed troll. Earlier this month we saw a good bite in the Sea of Cortez near Cabeza de Ballena, but with higher winds this week, most boats chose to head west. Another species that are hit and miss at the moment, but worth the effort when landed.

Other Species – We saw a large number of fish like Pompano, Sierra Mackerel, Trigger Fish, Red Snapper as colder waters started to creep in this week. Panga and bottom fishing are starting to heat up!
