Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Cabo San Lucas - Saltwater Fishing Report



BILLFISH: Again a very slow week for marlin in the Cabo area, but this is really what we expect at this time of year, our “March doldrums” – for years it was always like this in March, but then the past three or four years we had pretty good fishing during this month, which lulled us into believing Cabo fishing had to be good all the time. Despite having only an eight percent catch success rate on marlin, our overall catch success for all species combined was seventy-two percent. The boost in the catch rate was due to the timely arrival of a nice school of yellowfin tuna mid-week, which was the highlight of our fishing this period. There were a few nice catches; Minerva III had a 190 lb swordfish on March 21st while fishing 19 miles off of Palmilla. Andrea had a marlin two days running on the 26th and 27th, both released and estimated at 140-150 lbs. On some days boats spotted and baited up to three marlin, but getting them to bite was a different story. Basically there was no set location to fish; it was a matter of luck. Pisces anglers caught four striped marlin this week, with all but one 150 lb’er released.

OTHER SPECIES: Right at the beginning of this report, La Brisa had a beautiful 86 lb wahoo caught on a purple Marauder, by Gene Jameson from Wisconsin. Since then we haven’t seen hardly any. As mentioned above we had good tuna fishing from the 22nd to the 24th – boats fished from San Jaime to the Old Lighthouse and got anywhere from two to ten ranging in size from 25 to 100 lbs. Ed and Marie Sartin, did very will to get five, ranging from 40 to 130 lbs aboard Andrea – they were however, 40 miles out from the Old Lighthouse. At the close of the week, we had some good dorado catches, thanks to a dead whale, found between 18-20 miles between 95 spot and Chileno – boats early to this site had up to seven dorado from 15 to 40 lbs. Inshore there was plenty of action on sierra, also a few pargos and the odd roosterfish here and there.

LOCATION: From San Jaime on the Pacific to San Jose on the Cortez side, generally out from shore, 15 to 25 miles. WEATHER CONDITONS: Like the fishing up and down. We did have mostly sunny days, some days calm, others with a lot of wind. AVERAGE WATER TEMP: 69 F BEST LURES: Live bait, green/orange, red/orange. Based on the catches of Pisces Fleet by Tracy Ehrenberg
