Cabo San Lucas - Saltwater Fishing Report

Cabo San Lucas Fishing Report February 16, 2012

BRRRRRRRRR!! Watch out for icebergs! Cabo is passing the coldest weather that I can remember. Strong winds out of the north and a wicked fast current are keeping the surface temps a full 10 degrees lower than the average of years past. This has been the strangest season I can remember. I have only been here for 11 years, but gents much saltier than myself are saying the same. This could be the coolest year on record. This is a game changer to say the least. The good news is the readily available bait schools. The fish are confused, the need to move to warmer waters to metabolize is being overridden by the abundance of available food. The currents are moving very fast and warm water pockets are being pushed and relocated by the currents. The best way to be successful is to be prepared, chart the surface temps, drift rate, and bait locations and be in the right place at the right time. Once there be ready and be efficient as a marlin that would typically feed three or four times an hour may only feed twice per day. For billfish find them and stay with them, the key to success is finesse. Going easy will give you an opportunity to bait the fish a number of times hopefully catching them when they are ready to eat. What is challenging for billfish makes for great tuna fishing, the stains are a good ways off shore, but well worth the run. The cold-water breaks are numerous and cut with a knife by these currents once you find the porpoise you can catch tuna all day long. These trips are specialty trips and should be taken for ten to twelve hours with the understanding that it is hit or miss; the tuna are much farther out than anything else. If you are going to make the run out there it is essential to stay out long enough to locate them, once on them the bite will wear out even the most eager group of anglers in two to three hours. The play it safe method is satisfying as well the dorado bite is steady and these buggers are happy to feed! A typical day on the water will net you two or three nice dorados, a chance or two at a finicky marlin and a handful of sierra mackerel inshore. Even when the fishing is tough in Cabo it is world class.!
