This week, fishing conditions were significantly affected by Hurricane Jova, which brought adverse weather conditions and impacted fishing activities.

Despite the challenging weather conditions, marlin fishing continued to be sluggish. However, anglers managed to land notable catches. On Tuesday, we caught and released a 125-pound striped marlin and an impressive 250-pound blue marlin. Additionally, there was another striped marlin catch today in the Horseshoe area.

Dorado fishing has shown signs of improvement this week, with catches ranging from 14 to 30 pounds using lures and live bait at the Lighhouse.


While still a bit slow, has begun to show up. On Friday, we had a successful day with six tuna catches, ranging from 40 to 60 pounds and were hooked using cedar plugs at the Horseshoe.

No reports of wahoo catches this week.

No reports of Rooster catches this week.

A few skipjacks and dorado.

Despite the challenges posed by Hurricane Jova, dedicated anglers managed to secure some remarkable catches, particularly in the marlin and dorado categories. The catches of a 125-pound striped marlin, a 250-pound blue marlin, and the successful day with six tuna catches are testament to the resilience and determination of our fishing enthusiasts.

BEWARE: Please beware of the guys in the street selling boat charters. If you wait till the day you are fishing and go to the dock where your boat is many times people will mislead you to another boat or dock trying to put you on a boat that was not meant for you. You need to have a person guide you to your boat, who is from a reputable charter company. This way there is no confusion or misleading. Please remember when renting Sport fishing boats in Cabo that you rent your boat from reputable and established business. Walk into a fishing fleet office and ask questions about what you are getting and what are the costs. You don't want to rent boats from vendors in the streets and you do not want to book through shady websites offering you the world. Check through travel forums about reputable fishing fleets to deal with. Look for testimonials about the fleet your booking, your charter with. Ask about what will the boat be supplying? Will it include beverages or lunches? How much does it cost to fillet your catch? Check to see if charter boat is insured? Ask about getting your catch smoked? Check cost of a fishing license. These are just a few things to consider when booking your charter boat. We will be talking more about this in the next weeks fishing report. Until next time good fishing and we hope to see you in Cabo soon. Come by the office here in Cabo and get all the latest up to date fishing report.
