Pisces Cabo Fishing Report 21 April 2017

Date Published:

Overall catch success rate, all species combined: 74%

Numbers at a glance: Billfish 30%, Tuna 6%, Dorado 0%, other 46%.

This week was a mix, with some days being very good for striped marlin, other days seeing yellowfin tuna, and still other days produced wahoo or even yellowtail. We had an increase up to 30% of boats catching billfish this week, most of these being striped marlin out at the Cabrillo seamount. The Pisces Tracy Ann had a successful day for some anglers visiting from Austin, Texas. They managed to catch and release four striped marlin around 130-150lbs on caballito live bait, and got a nice 40lbs wahoo also at the Cabrillo seamount. The Pisces Ruthless managed a nearly identical day, however they had three striped marlin caught and released and a very nice 60lbs wahoo landed on a green/yellow lure at the Cabrillo seamount for some anglers out of California. The Pisces Tag Team switched things up a bit and had three striped marlin caught and released as well as twelve yellowfin tuna for some anglers from Costa Mesa, California.  

As far as odd catches go, the Pisces C Rod caught and released a 220lbs hammerhead shark on caballito live bait off of San Jose, as well as a 130lbs striped marlin. Representative of a good inshore day was the Pisces Adriana that landed three grouper near 10lbs each on caballito, as well as thirteen yellowtail from 5 to 25lbs. All of this on the Pacific side just off of Rancho Las Margaritas for an angler from Pella, Iowa.
