PISCES 2017 Weekly Fish report

Capt. Tracy Ehrenberg
January 8, 2017
Cabo San Lucas - Saltwater Fishing Report

December 31st, 2016 to January 6th, 2017
Overall catch success rate, all species combined: 84%
Numbers at a glance: Billfish 31%, Tuna 32%, Dorado 18%, other 29%

The New Year started this week, and fishing was hit or miss depending on the day (crews had January 1st off), but even with that we saw 84% of all trips land fish. Although last week we saw many large tuna landed throughout Cabo, this week most of the yellowfins were in the football tuna range. The Finger Bank remains productive for those willing to spend the extra money on fuel. Top boat of the week was definitely the Pisces Valerie, captain Roberto Sandez who put the Dow's from Greenbrae, California on seven striped marlin on both the 4th and 5th of January. Heading out to the Finger Bank they caught and released all fish on mackerel live bait, they estimated them at around 100-150lbs. On January 3rd the same boat and crew caught and released five striped marlin in the exact same area.

As far as other species go we saw boats this week landing smaller tuna, some dorado and wahoo. We saw the following smaller game fish caught throughout the week: grouper, jack crevalle, sierra Spanish mackerel, sea bass, skipjack, roosterfish, amberjack and ladyfish. Top wahoo numbers went to the Pisces Bill Collector, landing three wahoo of 10-30-40lbs respectively, as well as two football size yellowfin tunas and eight skipjack all out about 30 miles from the 200 Spot for a group of anglers from Midland, Texas. Bucking the small yellowfin trend we saw the Pisces Rebecca, captained by JR Alucano land a 213.5lbs yellowfin tuna for some anglers from Conneticut, as well as two smaller 15lbs fish. They were all landed out at the Golden Gate on kite lures.

LOCATION: Pacific side.
WEATHER CONDITIONS: Clear skies and calm seas most of the week, with daily high air temperatures in the mid-70s.
BEST LURES: Mackerel live bait, cedar plug.
