Cabo San Lucas - Saltwater Fishing Report

Pisces Weekly Fish Report
April 28th to May 4th
Overall catch success rate, all species combined: 74%
Numbers at a glance: Billfish 21%, Tuna 37%, Dorado 13%, other 19%.
I'll paint you a picture of Cabo this week: the weather has been beautiful, with sunshine every day and not too much heat, a bit of a breeze to cool off afternoons and fish in your cooler for lunch or to take home. Even though catch success rate did drop a bit this week, the tuna numbers are still steady and we saw many boats having fun with the smaller game fish too. These catches included roosterfish, snappers, groupers, and more.

To start off the week, Pisces 31ft Cabolero, released 3 of their 5 dorado caught, as the smallest were only about 5 lbs each. The others, which they kept, were about 15 lbs. These hit on feather lures and mackerel out of San Jaime. They also found luck with the tunas here and landed 3 nice football sized yellowfin. these hit on feathers, cedar plugs and white/blue lures. Anglers were the Mackintosh family from Alberta, Canada.
Pisces 60ft Shambala with Captain Enrique Sandoval and anglers from Los Gatos, CA, caught 14 yellowfin in total on their day out. The fish hit on feathers and cedar plug lures at San Jaime and were all small football sized fish.
As usual, the 31ft Pisces Tracy Ann did well to find tuna this week, with 11 yellowfin caught by anglers Derek Purves, Martin Williams and Steve Nikol on May 4th. The tunas ranged in size from 5 to 23 lbs each and were found out at the 11:50 Spot, hitting mainly on cedar plugs. This group of anglers, comprised mainly of Scots, English, and a lone Welshman, fished with Pisces throughout the whole week, on both the Tracy Ann and one of our pangas, Poseidon, with Captain Rigo. The group split themselves onto both boats daily, depending on what they were looking to catch, as some were looking for roosterfish, and others, to land their first marlin. Stuart Malcolmson, from Edinburgh, wrote to me about their experience this week:
"Thank you for a brilliant week in Cabo, we have had an exceptional week with Pisces, thank you and the teamů Rigo has been exceptional all week and a lot of laughs where had. His expertise in rooster and snapper was superb. Julio and Martin [on the Tracy Ann] really stood out with our guys and their work ethic and the effort to catch the fish was amazing to watch as they cast at free swimming marlin. We had the good fortune of catching 5 marlin for the week, 9 roosters, 29 tuna (up to 20lb) and numerous grouper and trigger fish [sierra mackerel and skipjacks too]. All in all, fishing on Poseidon and Tracy Ann has been fantastic and we hope to visit again in the future."
Roosterfish caught aboard Panga Poseidon
The fishing grounds for this fine group of lads, ranged from the 11:50 Spot to San Jaime for marlin and tuna, and from Los Arcos to Cerros de Arena for smaller game fish.
Pisces boats caught 139 fish total this week, with 12 being marlin, 63 being tuna, 14 being dorado and 50 being smaller game fish. All marlin but one marlin released, and catch limits well respected.
