What a year…
The fishing was starting to really pick up last week, past 3 days we have a couple of tropical storms come thru resulting in the port being closed. Yesterday we were back at it.
No reports on marlin yesterday. Not a lot of boats went out yesterday, most of the groups fishing yesterday were looking for meat.
Was off the hook, lots of different schools at the 1150, the 95 and horseshoe, most fish on live bait, some on king busters and cedar plugs. The fish were from 12lb, lot 30lbs to 40lb and few 80lb to 100lbs.
Yesterday was very good from Gray Rock to Santa María tight to the beach, lots of smalls but some 12lb to 20lb. Most fish on ballyhoo some on lures.
Starting to show, few on lures and we got 1 yesterday slowing trolling live bait.
Looks like October and November are going to be very busy for us, make your reservation at [email protected] or give me a call at 011 52 (624) 147 5821.

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.
