Weekend Fishing Forecast:

Weather forecast mixed with light rain and sun. Skeena River is in good shape and catches of Steelhead and Coho are reported to be fair. Most of the runs have already gone through. Actually, all rivers are in fishable shape. Coho are now coming into the lower Skeena tributary rivers such as the Gitnadoix, Kasiks and Exchamsiks. Look for rolling fish. With the low water the fish are having a tough time making it up river. Lakelse River Bridge Coho fishing is slow. Marabou jigs work well so does Gibbs/Delta lures and spinners. Try casting these spoons are the river mouth, I have reports of good catches there. Lake fishing is good everywhere. Ocean fishing out of Kitimat and Prince Rupert is excellent; so is Crabbing and Prawning. If you are new to the area and don't know how or where to fish why don't you consider hiring a fishing guide? Contact me noel@noelgyger.ca for that. Good luck this weekend. Good luck this weekend.
Taking bookings now for: Gitnadoix, Kwinamass (April & May), Ishkeenickh, Kincolith, Zymoetz (Copper) class 1 and class 2 sections, Kalum and Skeena 2 plus all the unclassified rivers on the Skeena, Nass and coastal. Ocean out of Kitimat and Prince Rupert. If you are interested for a guided fishing trip please contact me anytime.

September 29, 2013

Anglers –



With the fall season now officially here we have seen a substantial
increase in anglers arriving in the Los Cabos area. After the near miss of
Hurricane Manuel last week conditions have now settled down, though still
very tropical, high humidity and scattered cloud cover threatening rain
squalls at times, it is that time of year when we see local tropical
weather patterns develop in the afternoon, often raining in areas north of
the airport, while the rest the region just swelters in the muggy
conditions. Despite the day time temperatures being in the 90s the early
mornings are now cooler and some north winds are starting to make their
presence felt.



Strong ocean currents persist, predominately from the south, water
temperatures have ranged from the upper 70s on the Pacific side of Cabo San
Lucas to an average of 85/86 degrees in the direction of the Sea of Cortez
and towards Los Frailes. The majority of the sportfishing fleets have been
concentrating efforts on the fishing grounds where the warmer water is
present. Large schools of baitfish are spread out on the offshore grounds,
plenty of food sources for attracting gamefish. Commercial bait supplies
were scrambling to find new resources, as during recent storm activity and
full moon phase the bait became scarcer. In recent days pangeros were
traveling as far as La Ribera to obtain sardinas for the fleet, selling
fresh dead bait and limited supplies of live sardinas. Squid were no longer
being found in local waters, but were plentiful off the East Cape region.
Some anglers are finding some early morning action for bolito, which are
making great trolling baits, though have not been easy to catch once the
sun rises.



The most consistent action recently has been found from La Fortuna, Iman,
San Luis and Vinorama, this is where anglers have been drift fishing with
strips of squid and either live or dead sardinas, catching good numbers of
yellowfin tuna in the 10 to 15 pound class, anglers have had better success
using sardinas in recent days, compared to the squid. These is a lot of
pressure on these grounds now, increased local crowds, as well as the East
Cape Fleets were traveling the long run to get into this same action, where
their abundant supplies of live sardinas have been enticing the tuna into a
feeding frenzy. Using lighter leaders of 25/30 lb. has resulted in greater
number of strikes.



The larger yellowfin tuna are still lurking on the Gordo Banks, though this
past week for anglers did try to hook into a cow, they did not have
success, we only heard of one yellowfin of 120 pounds being taken off the
Gordo, this was on Thursday, trolling alive bolito. There were many
sailfish and a few striped marlin, but the tuna did not want to cooperate,
with the swift current and concentrations of bait on these grounds, these
tuna have plenty to eat, hard to say what is going on, though the tuna are
not seen feeding on the surface either, perhaps hanging deeper, escaping
the currents and preferred cooler depths. We are anticipating seeing these
giants become more active soon.



Dorado have been found in good numbers, though most of them are smaller
fish and only a small percentage are topping the 15 pound mark, remember to
release as many of these juvenile fish as possible so that they can have
the chance to mature and reproduce.



Still no consistent action for wahoo, these elusive fish are in the area
though, normally they become more active as water temperature lower into
the 78/80 degree range. A handful of wahoo in the 25 to 35 lb. class were
landed, many of these were taken incidentally while drift fishing for tuna
on straight mono leader, though when anglers added wire leader then these
fish would not strike the same baits.



Rounding out the action were limited numbers of bottom structure species,
including amberjack, grouper, barred pargo, bonito and dogtooth snapper,
not many of these fish were encountered in the strong currents, though some
impressive specimens were accounted for. Also some rainbow runners being
found, these jacks congregate on the high spots and prefer the warmer water
temperatures, scrappy fighters and good eating, ranging up to 15 pounds.



The combined panga fleets launching out of La Playita, Puerto Los Cabos
Marina sent out approximately 126 charters for this past week, with anglers
accounting for a fish count of:

5 striped marlin, 18 sailfish, 8 wahoo, 9 amberjack,18 rainbow runners, 15
bonito, 3 dogtooth snapper, 8 barred pargo, 6 grouper, 715 yellowfin tuna
and 320 dorado.





Good fishing, Eric

San Jose del Cabo



September 22, 2013

Anglers –



Crowds of tourists visiting Los Cabos were relatively light this past week,
this is the normal pattern for the later part of September, though with the
fall season just about ready to start in earnest, surely there will be a
flood of visitors swarm the area in the coming weeks, as this is always one
of the busiest times of the year. The great all around fishing action and
ideal weather conditions, along with world famous high stake fishing
tournaments attract people from all over the world. Another reason for
limited numbers of tourists this past week was the highly publicized
forecast of the most recent Tropical Storm Manuel, which first struck the
southern mainland near Acapulco and cause disastrous flood damage, resulted
in many deaths, the system was downgraded to a depression after making
landfall but then regenerated strength once getting back over the warm
ocean waters and heading in the direction of the Sea of Cortez, forecasters
were unsure of its erratic path, with water temperatures near 90 degrees
Manuel did reach category one hurricane status and ended up making landfall
in Sinaloa, where it again caused major flood damage.



The Southern Baja region was bracing for probable impact, though they were
spared any major damage, on Wednesday afternoon there was wide spread
lightening, thunder and rain squalls, but there were not any reports of
high winds or heavy ocean storm conditions developing. Local ports were
closed for both Wednesday and Thursday, reopening for Friday morning. As a
precaution the government also closed schools for the same two days,
despite clear calm conditions on Thursday, this seemed a bit over
overcautious, as there are already so many holiday vacation days scheduled.



Building up to this latest storm, anglers reported the most consistent
fishing action for dorado and yellowfin tuna. The majority of the dorado
were now juvenile sized, with a small percentage of these fish going over
15 pounds, scattered throughout the area in medium sized schools, striking
on lures and various baits. Baitfish were scarcer during this period, as
bait suppliers were finding it harder to jig up caballito during the dark
hours and the squid that had been in the area the past couple of weeks had
all but vanished, the commercial fleet is now scouting out new bait
sources. The East Cape had been finding good supplies of sardinas, but
apparently these schools were scattered from higher surf conditions that
struck this area with the passing of TS Manuel.



The best action for the yellowfin tuna was found from Iman to San Luis
Bank, anglers were using strips of squid to entice tuna up to 25 lb., while
fly lining these baits on the surface they could find limits of five fish
per license. Then when the source of fresh squid disappeared anglers had to
rely again on trolling hoochies, smaller feathers or cedar plugs and the
numbers of yellowfin were not as high. East Cape boats had been making the
long run south to these same fishing grounds and with live sardinas they
were having a field day for the yellowfin tuna, but now they are scrambling
for bait as well. With the weather once again settled down we expect the
bait situation to improve, even though we are also now dealing with the
full moon phase, which never seems to help the abundance of bait sources.
We do expect to see sardinas moving into local waters very soon, as this is
the annual migration pattern.



On Friday, the first day that the port reopened after Hurricane Manuel, a
group of three local La Playita pangeros hooked into a super cow sized
yellowfin tuna while trolling a live bolito on the Gordo Banks from a 22
ft. panga, after a two and a half hour battle they were able to bring the
fish to gaff, back at the docks the yellowfin was weighed in at 367 pounds,
largest tuna reportedly caught this season, a definite tournament jackpot
contender.



There has been limited bottom fishing opportunities due to very persistent
strong currents, almost unprecedented, we do expect with weather patterns
now transitioning that this current will reside and will open new option
for anglers.



With the arrival of fall, we see the water temperatures start to fall and
with this species such as wahoo normally become more active, so are all
anticipating this, as well as improved bait resources. Though this is now
always the period when we feel high humidity, the worst of the summer heat
is past and we will now be enjoying ideal weather in the coming months.



The combined panga fleets launching out of La Playita, Puerto Los Cabos
Marina sent out approximately 48 charters for this storm shortened week,
with anglers accounting for a fish count of: 2 striped marlin, 1 sailfish,
4 wahoo, 2 amberjack, 4 dogtooth snapper, 225 yellowfin tuna and 160 dorado.





Good fishing, Eric

San Jose del Cabo



September 15, 2013

Anglers –



Local weather has settled down this past week, this has given the area a
chance to dry out after all of the recent rainfall. The desert landscape
has transformed to a lush green color, days remain warm, with scattered
tropical cloud cover and high humidity. With each passing day we are
starting to feel a hint of fall in the air, particularly early morning.
There is now a low pressure system developing off of the Southern Mexico
mainland coast and we will be monitoring its progress closely, as this is
the time when the local environment is favorable for tropical storms to
form rapidly.



Crowds of tourists are light now, this is the time when family priorities
shift towards starting the new school year. It will be soon enough when the
busy fall fishing season is in full swing. For the anglers that are making
the trip they have enjoyed great fishing action in recent days. Most
consistent bite has been found on the areas north of Punta Gorda, from La
Fortuna to San Luis Bank, for yellowfin tuna and dorado. Ocean current has
been swift from the south, this has made any bottom fishing that much more
difficult. Water temperatures are in the 84 to 87 degree range, clear blue
conditions are found within a couple of miles from shore.



Squid has been the best bait for the yellowfin tuna, the giant squid are
being jigging up by the commercial fleet in dark hours and sold to charter
boats in the morning, there are also limited supplies of caballito, still
no sardinas available. Drift fishing with strips of squid on light tackle
has been the best bet for catching limits of yellowfin tuna, the fish were
now larger than in previous weeks, averaging 15 to 20 pounds. The larger
cow sized tuna that were starting to show up on the Gordo Banks have not
been active this past week, though surely they are still in the area, we
expect these cows to become more active soon.



Dorado schools have been spread throughout the area, found by trolling
lures and baitfish. The majority of the fish have been smaller sized,
though with patience anglers have been able to find some larger sized
dorado mixed in. Limit on these fish is two per license and the inspectors
are enforcing these regulations. Only a few wahoo being accounted for, they
become sluggish in the warmer water, we expect that these speedsters will
become more active as fall conditions transition in the coming weeks.



Billfish have slowed this past week out of San Jose del Cabo, only
scattered reports of mostly smaller sized striped marlin, surely there are
black and blue marlin lurking on the grounds, they just are not readily
striking lately, the way the conditions are anything could happen on any
given day.



No inshore action being reported, bottom action was limited to a handful of
amberjack, pargo and grouper, though no numbers to speak of, though a few
impressive fish were accounted for, amberjack up to 78 lb. and one grouper
over 100 pounds landed by a La Playita commercial pangero, current has been
relentless, hard to effectively drift fish the bottom structure when moving
so fast.



The combined panga fleets launching out of La Playita, Puerto Los Cabos
Marina sent out approximately 75 charters this past week with anglers
accounting for a fish count of: 3 striped marlin, 8 wahoo, 5 amberjack, 2
grouper, 16 red snapper, 300 black skipjack, 415 yellowfin tuna and 550
dorado (many released).





Good fishing, Eric

San Jose del Cabo



September 1, 2013

Anglers –



This past week we witnessed how late summer tropical climate patterns can
change within a matter of hours. After enjoying relatively stable
conditions for a couple of weeks, this all changed on Wednesday afternoon,
as a disorganized low pressure system all of a sudden developed into
Tropical Storm Juliette. Within 12 hours this storm passed directly over
Cab San Lucas and continued towards central Baja. TS Juliette traveling at
a rapid pace, 30 mph hour, not giving much of a chance to gain more
strength, this was fortunate, as not a lot of damage was reports, normal
low land flooding and some moderate wind damage, as gusts of 45 mph were
steady and even higher winds of 75 mph were recorded in isolated areas.



Sportfishing fleet were shut down for last Friday and Saturday due to high
swells and rain caused by TS Ivo and once again there were closed port red
flag conditions on this Thursday, before reopening for Friday morning, as
ocean settled down and skies cleared. The next few weeks is always a time
when weather forecasts are monitored closely.



Most consistent fishing action recently has been for dorado, found
scattered throughout the region, traveling in schools of various sized
fish, the majority of which have been juvenile sized, though there is a
percentage of much larger dorado mixed in. There have been increasing
numbers of wahoo being reported, striking mainly on lures, over the
traditional high spots, as well as in the open blue water. This is
favorable sigh to see this many wahoo so easy in the season, as they
normally become more active later on in the fall.



There was excitement on the Gordo Banks, as the season’s first large sized
yellowfin tuna are moving on to these grounds. On Tuesday there were
several big tuna landed, up to 250 pounds, many other hook ups were lost
while battling huge tuna on heavy gear, the word traveled quickly, on
Wednesday there were heavy boat pressure and the big tuna did not want to
cooperate, though some of these cows were seen briefly feeding on surface.
Anglers have been using various baitfish, bolito, skipjack yellowfin,
chihuil and strips of fresh squid. As weather settles down we anticipate
this action will only improve, everyone is tuning up their heavy gear, so
that can be best prepared to battle these giants. There are football sized
yellowfin tuna being found throughout the zone, sometimes they have been
associated with porpoise, but often just encountered by blind strikes while
trolling hoochie type lures and cedar plugs.


Inshore action has really come to a standstill, this is normal during this
period of higher swell conditions, which also scatter inshore baitfish
schools. Not much bottom action now due to the continued strong current, a
handful of red snapper found alongside the anchored commercial fleet. Most
consistent fishing has found near the surface, charters are using a
combination of lures and the available baitfish. Anglers now have a chance
offshore of hooking into a grand slam of billfish, as there are striped,
blue and black marlin, as well as sailfish all present on the offshore
grounds.


The combined panga fleets launching out of La Playita, Puerto Los Cabos
Marina sent out approximately 45 charters for the week, with anglers
reporting a fish count of: 4 blue marlin, 2 black marlin, 8 striped marlin,
5 sailfish, 84 yellowfin tuna, 162 dorado, 4 wahoo and

18 huachinango (red snapper).



Good fishing, Eric

August 25, 2013

Anglers –



For the past couple of weeks the weather was relatively calm, hot and
humid, with some afternoon breezes. At this time we are bracing for a
weekend of thunderstorms, forecasters predict rainfall of six inches
possible over the Southern Baja. High swells to 15 feet, with winds of 30
knots will shut down sportfishing operations through the weekend. This
storm, now named Tropical Storm IVO, is predicted to follow a path well to
the west of the Baja Peninsula, the system is expansive, several separate
areas of disturbance are joining forces, slow moving and holding a lot of
moisture.



Ocean conditions had settled, we enjoyed calm weather patterns, offshore
fishing action was improving steadily. Dorado were the most common catch,
with large schools of smaller grade fish now present, there were still some
nicer bull dorado to 30 pounds or more accounted for, lot of juveniles to
deal with, these should be released to mature and reproduce, dorado are one
of the fastest growing species, studies say they grow five pounds per
month. Best practice is to release all of the smaller dorado and if
interested in capturing your limit of two dorado for personally
consumption, choose a pair of the larger catches. Anglers have been finding
easy limits for dorado, anglers found these fish from within one mile of
shore, to the offshore grounds, these gamefish have been readily striking a
wide variety of trolled lures and baits.



Football sized yellowfin tuna have been consistently found in recent weeks,
these fish were found closer to shore and not associated with porpoise,
schooling on the Iman and San Luis Banks, as well on the Gordo Banks, mixed
in with skipjack, finicky to bite at times, striking on strips of squid and
trolled hoochies, anglers were fortunate to land several of these small
tuna, some anglers did find fast limits. On Tuesday, Gordo Banks Pangas
skipper Chame Pino, with angler Dave Martin, visiting from Colorado, while
trolling a live bolito on the San Luis Bank hooked into what would be the
season’s first La Playita Cow Tuna. While using 80 pound tackle, Dave and
Chame teamed to subdue this giant tuna in under two and a half hours..
Commercial pangeros targeting huachinango on this these same grounds had
reported that they had seen large tuna feeding on these grounds the
previous afternoon, apparently the larger grade yellowfin are now moving
into the area, right on schedule.



Billfish action has been steady, lots of striped marlin, some sailfish and
good numbers of larger sized blue marlin were reported, many blues were
caught and released from anglers on sportfishers. A group of local La
Playita pangeros teamed up to land a black marlin that was estimated at
easily over 500 lb., hooked while trolling a small yellowfin tuna on the
Gordo Banks. The season is showing encouraging prospects for an excellent
fall season to come. Wahoo were also more active this past week, despite
warm water temperatures near 85 degrees, wahoo to 50 pounds were landed
while trolling the blue water ledges, no great numbers, but good for this
time of year.



No inshore action now, a few late season roosterfish by the PLC Marina
entrance, bottom bite was off due to the persistent strong currents. Red
snapper (huachinango are being found in good numbers by the commercial
fleet, they have been anchoring on deeper areas and using cut squid. Giant
squid are being found in big numbers off of the Los Frailes and East Cape
area, small sized giants, under two feet in length, same food source that
attracts big fish.



The combined panga fleets launching out of La Playita, Puerto Los Cabos
Marina sent out approximately 65 charters for the week, with anglers
reporting a fish count of: 2 blue marlin, 1 black marlin, 23 striped
marlin, 6 sailfish, 115 yellowfin tuna, 250 dorado, 13 wahoo,

16 roosterfish, 38 huachinango (red snapper) and 7 cabrilla.

San Jose del Cabo



August 18, 2013

Anglers –



Despite this time of year traditionally be known as the off season tourists
visiting Southern Baja, this summer there have been quite a few people
arriving. We are now in the midst of the most tropical period, which
normally lasts for the next four or five weeks. On Monday there was a storm
front that swept in from the east, lightening, thunder, some scattered
rain, sportfishing fleets canceled early morning charters, by 9 a.m. the
front had passed and some charters did launch later. This is local tropical
weather forming offshore, chance of isolated rain showers and more rain
over the weekend. Though there are new tropical storms that are forming to
the south, with ocean water temperature now 85 degrees or warmer the
environment is ripe for quick storm develop, heat index has been over 100
degrees, very high humidity and forecasts will be monitored closely.



With the warming tropical weather, light winds, ocean temperatures have
risen and the all around offshore fishing action has improved. Clean blue
water is now close to shore, concentrations of bolito, skipjack and
football sized yellowfin tuna are on the fishing grounds, attracting a
variety of gamefish, catches have included, sailfish, blue marlin, striped
marlin, dorado, wahoo, yellowfin tuna and skipjack. Inshore there are still
decent numbers of late season roosterfish hanging around the Puerto Los
Cabos Marina Jetty area.



Not much bottom action now available, swift currents make it more difficult
for drift fishing over the structure. The commercial panga fleet coming
from the Los Frailes direction have been setting anchors on the San Luis
Bank and hauling in big numbers of huachinango, the true red snapper,
valuable commercial catch, averaging 6 to 12 pounds. Some of the charter
boats are now getting into this action, drift fishing with pieces of fresh
giant squid. The squid are being caught off Los Frailes in quantity, can be
purchased from this panga fleet, $10 buys you a lot of squid, this is
something that has just developed this week, it has been working though.



Still no supplies of sardinas, these baitfish would work great for chumming
the yellowfin tuna into a surface feeding frenzy, it is time the local bait
supplying pangeros should starting to scout out this bait source. In the
mean time they are still finding plentiful caballito, mullet and moonfish.
Surf conditions are moderate now, takes one group to start chasing the
sardinas, then the rest will follow.



Dorado have been the most numerous gamefish being found, ranging in all
sizes, up to 45 lb., offshore and inshore, throughout the blue water,
striking a wide variety of lures and baits, blind strikes and found on set
buoys or other debris. Many dorado are be released, the limit on these fish
is two per license, best to release the juveniles and only bag the larger
specimens. More wahoo were accounted for off the high spots north of Punta
Gorda, most of these fish hit on trolled lures and ranged in the 25 to 50
lb. class. Wahoo are normally not that active when the water temperatures
get so warm, but these fish are elusive and will feed when they feel like
it.



Striped marlin have been hanging around, despite the warm currents, while
most of the stripers would now be found in cooler Pacific waters, there are
significant numbers of these fish still in the area, at times found in
grounds of five or six, tailing on the surface, often proving to be finicky
and not interested, other times readily striking lures and trolled baits.
Everyday we are hearing stories of blue marlin strikes and an occasional
black marlin encounter, we expect to see more of this action, as this is
now the time, with the conditions ideal and the food prevalent, big fish
will be lurking.



Yellowfin tuna action has been found from Iman to San Luis Bank, trolling
hoochie type lures or drift fishing with strips of fresh squid, the action
has been sporadic, feeding on their particular schedule, some charter would
have 5 to 10 tuna in the box, though most anglers were fortunate to catch
one or two. Sizes have averaged 8 to 15 pounds.



The combined panga fleets launching out of La Playita, Puerto Los Cabos
Marina sent out approximately 78 charters for the week, with anglers
reporting a fish count of: 2 blue marlin, 38 striped marlin, 8 sailfish,
124 yellowfin tuna, 215 dorado, 12 wahoo, 30 roosterfish, 14 jack crevalle,
45 huachinango (red snapper) and 11 cabrilla.

Weekend weather forecasts cooler temperatures and some rain. Skeena River is in fair shape and catches of Steelhead, Coho and Pink are reported. Tyee Test Fishery shows a good run. Kitimat River Chum and Pink Salmon are doing well. Huge run of Pink this year. Coho slow due to extreme low water. Maybe the rain on the weekend and a bump in the water height will bring in the run? Lake fishing is good everywhere. Ocean fishing out of Kitimat and Prince Rupert is excellent; so is Crabbing and Prawning. Good luck this weekend.
Taking bookings now for: Gitnadoix, Kwinamass (April & May), Ishkeenickh, Kincolith, Zymoetz (Copper) class 1 and class 2 sections, Kalum and Skeena 2 plus all the unclassified rivers on the Skeena, Nass and coastal. Ocean out of Kitimat and Prince Rupert. If you are interested for a guided fishing trip please contact me anytime.

Anglers –



As the summer climate has progressively heated up, so has the offshore
fishing action, as anglers are finding a mix of billfish, dorado, yellowfin
tuna and even a few wahoo. Weather patterns have settled down, there was a
tropical squall that moved in from the east last Sunday, bring some
scattered rain showers and some eye opening lightening. There has been very
little wind recently, some scattered clouds, very warm and humid. There are
a series of tropical storm system now tracking on distant westerly paths,
the coming weeks is when historically these storms can form in much closer
proximity and threaten land, so we will be monitoring forecasts carefully.



Bait supplies for caballito, mullet and moonfish remained sufficient,
though they are not as numerous as earlier in the summer. More bolito are
now schooling on the fishing grounds and are being using for offshore
trolling baits. The bolito are readily striking on small hoochies early in
the day, but as the sun rose higher in the sky these great baitfish became
hard to catch. There has been a long absence of schooling sardinas for the
La Playita panga fleets, this past week the sardinas have been starting to
move in along the beach stretch just to the north of the Puerto Los Cabos
Marina Jetty, not in sufficient quantity to supply the fleets, but at least
this is encouraging we are seeing these baitfish back in our area. Some
locals have been able to net these sardinas from the beach and are using
them to catch some very impressive sized snook, quite a few of these
normally elusive fish have been landed, weighing in the 20 to 45 lb. class.
One snook estimated to be at least 60 pounds was landed, this could have
been a new IGFA world record, as the all tackle record for snook is now
listed at 58 lb., those these local anglers just hauled the catch off to
their home, not wishing to go through all of the record applications, etc…



Anglers are finding good numbers of late season roosterfish early in the
day right in the vicinity of the PLC Marina Channel, still some roosters to
50 pounds in this area, striking on slow trolled live bait. Not much action
found off the bottom rock piles now, there has been a persistent strong
current running and this appears to be slacking up some now, in recent days
some nice huachinango were being hooked into on yo-yo jigs on rock pile
near San Luis Bank.



Most consistent gamefish action is now being found offshore, anywhere from
3 to 15 miles out, has varied from day to day, earlier in the week the best
bite was found off of San Luis, then later in the week that action slowed
and the bite was better straight out front of San Jose del Cabo and towards
the Gordo Banks. Striped marlin, blue marlin, sailfish, dorado, yellowfin
tuna and a handful of wahoo were all being found. Anglers used a
combination of trolling lures and various baitfish, including slabs from
giant squid, which were being sold at the dock area in the morning.



Most of the yellowfin being encountered were on the grounds from Iman to
Vinormama, not associated with porpoise, blind strikes while trolling
hoochies, cedar plugs and small feathers, sizes averaged 8 to 15 lb. Dorado
ranged from small juvenile fish to trophy sized bulls, close to 50 pounds.
Scattered action, some charters reported never seeing any dorado, while
others accounted for 3,4,5 of more very impressive fish. Billfish were also
hit or miss, though some incredible action was encountered, one cruiser
charter out of La Playita accounted for two blue marlin, a striped marlin
and sailfish, as well as tuna and dorado all in one morning.



The combined panga fleets launching out of La Playita, Puerto Los Cabos
Marina sent out approximately 85 charters for the week, with anglers
reporting a fish count of: 5 blue marlin, 9 sailfish, 28 striped marlin, 96
yellowfin tuna, 110 dorado, 3 wahoo, 38 roosterfish, 15 jack crevalle, , 22
huachinango (red snapper) and 13 cabrilla.



Good fishing, Eric
