Cabo Fishing Report, July 4th

Cabo Fishing Report, July 4th
Happy 4th of July!! A big thanks to all of the troops overseas and all of our men and women in the armed services that won't be at a BBQ with their families. Summer fishing at its finest! Cabo has it all, as easy as the drive thru at a fast food restaurant. "We would like one marlin, two dorado and five tunas, and could you supersize that marlin please?" Tuna, dorado, wahoo, striped marlin, sailfish, and blue marlin are all available and biting. The hardest part is deciding what you would like to fish for. The water conditions are still better in the Sea of Cortez, but this will not hold for long, the Pacific is warming up and bait is moving in that direction. Within a week or two there will be plenty of fish on both sides of the peninsula.
Typical charter production is much as it has been, a couple of billfish for the anglers interested in trophy fish, and the numbers of either tuna or dorado depend greatly upon the amount of time spent fishing for them. Anglers can easily limit out on a species and then move on to the next one on the list. Bring plenty of cold drinks and better double or triple the amount of ice you would normally bring to keep your fillets fresh. Hot spots are the 95, 1150, and the gordo banks. This does not tie you to these specific spots as changing trolling speeds and locations has produced some nice Wahoos as well. I recommend taking advantage of the conditions when they are this good as a ton of practice can be completed when the fish are so thick. One day when the bite is this hot is like a week of fishing under normal conditions. An angler and a crew can gain some serious ground in working as a solid unit with this many hookups. For serious anglers it is a great time to hold off on the beer until the run back in and take one more pass at that bait ball or stain and work on technique.
Tournament ready, that is the name of the game here at Slippery Lizzard. The fish are here, we just need to make sure we are doing everything possible to get the biggest ones we can. The process of data collection has begun. This year we want to take advantage of the dailies as well as the jackpots, being able to hang a few fish really is fun. Communication is key, we are sticking to our teams. The crews that are fishing together now will be in the same groups until mid November and we are also adding the third man now so when mid October rolls around we have a well oiled machine. As we move to this setup we have a Captain, a wire man, and a gaff man. This gives the guys the ability to add one more set of hands to the cockpit. We are focusing on not just getting into the tunas, but then sinking some baits and running some variety as far as lures go when we are in them and seeing what works. The guys are getting their own personal roles identified and then tweaking the process to get the best results. The idea is to be able to come upon Tuna and Dorado and quickly pull one out of the pack that is larger than the others and getting her bagged, iced and salted. Then get back to raising a big blue or black.
