Anglers –

With the start of a new month we
have finally seen more stable weather patterns and the summer season is now
feeling more like we would expect, increased tropical humidity and warmer days.
The next couple of months is when forecasters will closely monitor the progress
of any low pressure areas, which can that quickly form into tropical storms. At
this time there is Hurricane Gil which is now far off to the west and there are
no other new systems developing that appear to threaten land. Ocean water
temperatures are now averaging 80 to 85 degrees and clean blue water is moving
within a couple of miles of shore, winds have resided and conditions are very
favorable for offshore gamefish action.

Moderate crowds of anglers are
now taking advantage of the much improved ocean conditions, no more having to
travel far offshore to find blue water. The fishing grounds from Palmilla to
the Gordo Banks, from 3 to 8 miles offshore have been consistent this past week
for billfish, dorado and yellowfin tuna. Besides good numbers of striped
marlin, were some sailfish, blue and black marlin. Schooling bolito and
skipjack are now congregating on these same grounds and are attracting the
normal variety of pelagic gamefish. Angles found action while trolling with
lures and various baits. Yellowfin tuna were found throughout this area, much
of the time without any presence of porpoise activity, these tuna were ranging
in the 8 to 15 lb. class, striking mainly on smaller hoochies type lures, this
is the first time this season where the tuna have made a presence in close
proximity offshore of San Jose del Cabo. Dorado are increasing in numbers as
well, with many charters accounted for several dorado per day, weights ranged
to over 40 pounds, anglers now have a good chance at hooking into a trophy
sized bull now.

There were some larger sized
yellowfin reportedly seen breezing on the surface, but only the smaller
football models are striking recently, we do expect something to develop for
the larger yellowfin as the season progresses.

The commercial pangero fleet
continues to find supplies of baitfish in the Puerto Los Cabos Marina channel,
caballito, mullet and moonfish are all available. Though with the added
pressure of having to supply the Cabo San Lucas fleet as well as local fleets,
this bait source has become less plentiful. It is a good thing that we are now
seeing quantities of other baitfish appearing on the fishing grounds. Migration
patterns have been running behind schedule this season, nice to see things get
back on track.

Inshore action has tapered off,
though there is still some quality roosterfish striking early in the day in the
vicinity of the Puerto Los Cabos Marina jetties. Not much bottom action being
found now, strong currents had been a contributing factor in not finding any
consistent bite off of the normally productive rock piles found north of Punta
Gorda. Though August is a month known more for offshore surface activity,
rather than bottom or inshore, it is a time when anglers can find dogtooth
snapper, amberjack and grouper on these high spots where other surface pelagic
are being targeted.

The combined panga fleets
launching out of La Playita, Puerto Los Cabos Marina sent out approximately 77
charters for the week, with anglers reporting a fish count of: 3 blue marlin, 1
black marlin,11 sailfish, 70 striped marlin, 82 yellowfin tuna, 68 dorado, 84
roosterfish, 18 jack crevalle, 5 amberjack, 3 dogtooth snapper, 10 yellow
snapper, 12 huachinango (red snapper) and 12 cabrilla.

Good fishing, Eric

San Jose del Cabo



July 28, 2013

Anglers –



Weather patterns have stabilized this past week and conditions are feeling
more like we would expect during mid summer season. Tropical cloud cover is
forming over the mountainous areas in the afternoon, that is always a sign
that summer season is progressing normally, increased humidity with high
temperatures in the 90s. Winds were moderate, has shifted from the north,
east and the southwest, ocean water temperatures are now in the 80 to 84
degree range, from Cabo San Lucas to Los Frailes. Clean blue water is now
being found as close as several miles from shore. There is presently
Tropical Storm Flossie located far off to the west, appears to be heading
in the direction of the Hawaiian Islands, and is forecast to weaken as it
does. No other storm systems are forming on the horizon at this time.



During the recent full moon baitfish such as caballito became harder to
find, moonfish were plentiful, though they are not the best offshore
baitfish. Lots of ballyhoo now schooling on the offshore grounds,
occasionally these baitfish were chased into meat balls and pushed to the
surface by feeding porpoise. There were more encounters in recent days of
yellowfin tuna found traveling offshore with porpoise, most days this
action was found 20 or more miles offshore and the tuna were more often
than not of the football sized variety, 5 to 15 pounds, though a local La
Playita pangero did account for one 40 pound fish, so that was encouraging,
there were reports of larger yellowfin tuna being seen in the swells. The
East Cape area has been seeing some larger sized tuna, the East Cape Bisbee
Tournament now has a 192 pound yellowfin tuna leading the tuna jackpot
category, with a 46 lb. dorado also at the top board, so far no qualifying
marlin over 300 pounds have been landed. Though on Wednesday there was a
black marlin in the 500 pound class that was caught off of a sportfishing
charter trolling outside of San Jose del Cabo, however they were not
participating in the ongoing tournament.



Good numbers of striped marlin now spread out throughout the region, most
commonly found 5 to 15 miles from shore, striking on lures and various
rigged baitfish, sizes averaged in the 70 to 120 pound range, a few
sailfish were mixed in. An occasional wahoo is striking on the same marlin
type lures on the offshore grounds, traveling through the blue water, one
wahoo weighed 65 lb., it was taken off a La Playita panga. Many charters
accounted for multiple billfish days, two or three fish was not uncommon.
Dorado were being found most days just as random single fish, some trophy
sized catches to over 45 pounds were weighed in, no significant numbers of
these fish.



Inshore action was mainly for late season roosterfish, the action has
tapered way off compared to previous weeks, which is the normal pattern for
late July, but there were still some larger roosters to over 50 pounds
accounted for, some boats accounting for up to a half a dozen big fish. The
inshore amberjack action that had been so good, has come to a standstill
and the deeper rock piles where we would normally be concentrating on, have
been harder to fish due to a very strong current sweeping through, when
this does slack we expect to find some better opportunities for the spots
around La Fortuna, Iman and San Luis Banks. One local panga charter
accounted for a 57 lb. dogtooth snapper on Thursday, angler Jason Shipman
was trolling bait inshore, near Vinorama.



Shore anglers have reported a handful of very impressive snook catches in
recent days, they were all reportedly hooked into near the Puerto Los Cabos
Marina and Estuary area, fish up to 46 lb. were caught, also several other
in the 20 to 30 pound range. These fish were taken on available baitfish
and on cast and retrieved jigs. One was actually caught from a panga while
trolling a bait for roosterfish, all others were from the beach.



The combined panga fleets launching out of La Playita, Puerto Los Cabos
Marina sent out approximately 69 charters for the week, with anglers
reporting a fish count of: 1 snook, 5 wahoo, 29 yellowfin tuna, 32 dorado,
48 striped marlin, 7 sailfish, 4 dogtooth snapper,

7 amberjack, 15 jack crevalle, 7 broomtail grouper, 15 cabrilla and 86
roosterfish.





Good fishing, Eric

Weekend Fishing Forecast:
Had some rain throughout the week but the forecast for the weekend is mostly sunny with higher day time temperatures. Chinook fishing on the Skeena is very good. BEST season in years. WOW Skeena Chinook fly fishing is difficult as most of the fish are holding in fast flowing deeper water. Conventional fishing works best at this time. Tyee Test fishery shows a good run of Chinook. Kalum is good for Chinook on the lower end. Try fishing for Chinook on the Exchamsiks and Kasiks in the clean water below the highway 16 bridge. Kitimat River Chinook is slowing down but lots of Pinks. Chum are starting to show up. Upper Lakelse Trout fishing is good, but water is high. Lakelse River Bridge should be fishing well for Chinook. Sockeye are in the river now. 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.

San Jose del Cabo



July 21, 2013

Anglers –



Moderate crowds are now arriving in the Los Cabos area, as summer weather
patterns continue to be more unpredictable than usual. No new tropical
storms have developed at this time and the conditions are feeling more
tropical, with scattered cloud cover and isolated showers on Thursday, as
clouds blew moisture in from the east. This cloud front and associated
breeze helped keep the climate very comfortable, high temperatures were
around 90 degrees. Ocean currents have been strong and constantly shifting,
ocean water temperature is around the 70 degree mark on the Pacific side of
Cabo San Lucas, while towards the Gordo Banks and north there has been
water temperatures up to 80 degrees or more.



The majority of sportfishing fleets now are fishing in the direction of the
warmer blue water. Winds were shifting from out of the north, east to west
and offshore waters were choppy at times. Striped marlin action turned on,
on the grounds from the 95 spot, the 1150, Gordo Banks and north to
Desteladera, multiple catches per day was common, stripers weighing up to
130 lb. were striking on the normal array of lures, readily hitting trolled
or dropped back live baits.



Some scattered reports of yellowfin tuna being found traveling with
porpoise, most of this action was found 10 to 20 miles from shore and the
tuna have been smaller sized footballs. No larger sized yellowfin tuna are
now being reported in local waters, though with 80 degree blue water now
present, anything could happen on any given day. An occasional wahoo was
being reported, most of these fish have been single fish, striking on lures
in open offshore water.



There was a dorado frenzy found midweek in the vicinity of some buoys that
were set in an area 10 to 12 miles offshore of the Cardon to La Fortuna
area. Anglers who were fortunate to get in on this action will remember it
for a long time, wide open action, as neon streaks of flashing blue, green
and yellow could be seen all around, the fish were averaging in the 30 to
50 pound class. These fish were striking on any type of baitfish thrown in
the water. Of course word travels quickly and the whole fleet arrived on
the scene and the dorado became more weary in the coming days, first boats
arriving in the morning hooked up, after that it was very scratchy.



Inshore action continues to produce roosterfish to 50 pounds or more, this
is usually the later part of the season for them, this year we have
experienced the best roosterfish bite as we have seen in the past decade,
simply for the sheer numbers of big roosterfish found throughout the
region. The amberjack action that had been going strong in recent weeks
while trolling surface baits over inshore rock piles, seem to have faded
out and now anglers are starting to find more action off of the deeper
areas, such as the Iman Bank, San Luis Bank and La Fortuna reefs, with
depths ranging from 100 to 180 feet. A mix of grouper, cabrilla, snapper,
amberjack and other species can be found on these grounds. Techniques
include, drift fishing with various whole and cut baits off of the bottom
and using yo-yo style jigs, bounced and rapidly retrieved off of the high
spots.



The supplies of baitfish in the PLC marina area continue to be plentiful
for caballito, mullet and moonfish. We should start to see more offshore
schooling batifish, such as bolito and small skipjack, move onto the local
fishing grounds, this always seems to attract more predators, these make
great live baits for the larger sized pelagic gamefish.



The combined panga fleets launching out of La Playita, Puerto Los Cabos
Marina sent out approximately 69 charters for the week, with anglers
reporting a fish count of: 4 wahoo, 19 yellowfin tuna, 78 dorado, 27
striped marlin, 2 sailfish, 5 dogtooth snapper, 12 hauchinango (red
snapper), 18 amberjack, 33 jack crevalle, 9 broomtail grouper, 25 leopard
grouper and 135 roosterfish (majority released).





Good fishing, Eric

Anglers –

The summer season has just begun and we are now seeing increased numbers of tourists
arriving in Southern Baja. The climate has been different this year, more Pacific
breeze and marine layer, keeping temperatures bearable, tropical conditions, highs
near 90 degrees, mild compared to the record heat Wave sweeping across parts of the
western U.S. Tropical storm season has started with a flurry, in the past week we
saw the formation of Hurricanes Cosme and Dalia, both of which had no impact to
land, following a westerly path. Presently on the horizon and gaining more strength,
is Hurricane Erick, this system is forecast to pass very close to the tip of the
Baja Peninsula, possibly bringing some moisture, surely some higher swells, along
with the associated humidity.

Ocean water temperatures have rebounded and in the direction of the Gordo Banks and
towards Los Frailes currents have been averaging 80 degrees or warmer. Still some
spotty off colored areas, but there has been clean blue water found within 5 to 15
miles from shore. Striped marlin have been the most common catch found offshore,
lots of stripers encountered from the Gordo Banks and to the north, anywhere from 5
to 15 miles from shore. Found in schools, the billfish are readily striking trolled
lures, majority of these fish are now running smaller sized, 50 to 80 lb., some
specimens are ranging up to 130 lb.

Dorado are now scattered on the same fishing grounds where the marlin are, striking
on the same type of lures or bait, no significant numbers, though the dorado they
are finding are mostly larger sized 20 to 40 lb. fish. Anglers had the chance at
finding schools of dorado if they found any type of floating debris or set buoys.

Just this past week we received more reports of yellowfin tuna activity, these fish
were being found traveling with porpoise farther offshore, anywhere from 20 to 30
miles out. Off of the San Jose del Cabo grounds most of these yellowfin were in the
15 to 20 pound class, while off of the East Cape there are now some reports of
yellowfin over one hundred pounds being accounted for. This is some encouraging
news, there has been a long absence of any tuna action.

Inshore, it remains the same, with roosterfish being the most common catch, the
incredible wide open action we enjoyed in June has tapered off some, currents had
turned over the inshore conditions, but now the clean warm water is back and the
roosters are back on the prowl, patrolling the sandy beach stretches, fish to over
50 pounds are still being hooked into almost daily. These fish are a trophy catches,
not known for eating qualities and should be released as carefully as possible.

Rounding out the action were some quality sized amberjack, some weighing as much as
80 pounds, they are now being found over shallow rock piles to the north, similar
shallow rock piles that attract dogtooth snapper and grouper. There have been more
amberjack than these other species, hit or miss on the ambers though, traveling long
distances to the more remote spots, highly susceptible to too much boat pressure,
not the type of spot where the fleet can all congregate, too shallow, fish spook
easily. Soon this action will shift back on to the normal grounds such are Iman or
San Luis Bank, areas that can accommodate more numbers of boats and anglers.

Live baits supplies have been holding inside of the Puerto Los Cabos Marina channel,
caballito, moonfish and mullet are available. Though quantities were scarcer this
past week, the fact that commercial pangeros from La Playita have been netting and
selling hundreds of bait to Cabo San Lucas vendors, who have had no bait source in
their own area, they have special salt water reservoirs in the back of pickup
trucks, all rigged with pumps, for quick transport back to the CSL Marina. Problem
is this has added heavy impact on this fragile bait source. Not a good deal when
local charters are facing bait shortages due to lack of resource, there is not an
endless supply of baitfish to support two marinas worth of sportfishing charters.

The combined panga fleets launching out of La Playita, Puerto Los Cabos Marina sent
out approximately 92 charters for the week, with anglers reporting a fish count of:
4 sailfish, 15 yellowfin tuna, 20 dorado, 64 striped marlin, (many released), 11
dogtooth snapper, 34 amberjack, 22 jack crevalle, 15 cabrilla and 310 roosterfish.

June 30, 2013

Anglers –



The summer season has just begun and on the Eastern Pacific we have already
seen the third named tropical storm, as this week Hurricane Cosme developed
off the coast of Manzanillo, before heading on a westerly path, coming
within 300 miles of Cabo San Lucas and quickly encountered cooler water
causing it to dissipate, never did threaten land. We never did feel more
than a few sprinkles of rain, though the ocean swells quickly rose up to
fifteen feet high on Tuesday and Wednesday, before residing on Thursday and
Friday. Local ports of Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Los Cabos were closed to
all boating activities, red flag conditions, by late Thursday morning the
ports were reopened for operations.



This latest storm system brought in more tropical and humid weather, high
temperatures were staying in the 80s, mild for this time of year, thick
marine haze, almost fog, has been hanging over the Southern Peninsula and
Pacific breezes are keep conditions comfortable. Anglers had encountered
turned over inshore water conditions prior to this recent storm, which
stirred things up even more and it could be a while before the water cleans
and warms back up. In the mean time more consistent action was being found
offshore, in the direction of the warmer currents north of the Gordo Banks
and towards Los Frailes. This is where sportfishing charters have been
finding decent numbers of striped marlin, a few sailfish and dorado also on
these same fishing grounds. Offshore trolling with lures, looking for signs
of activity, seeing some marlin on the surface and taking blind strikes by
a few larger sized dorado that are starting to move into the area, also a
few wahoo in the mix. Dorado to over 40 pounds were accounted for, just
there are no numbers to speak of yet, though if you happened to encounter
any type of floating debris you could be in for a wide open bite. This is
definitely the time of year where anything could happen on any given day.



The epic roosterfish action that had been happening close to shore has come
to a standstill as the water temperatures fell, water turned greenish and
baitfish scattered. There is warmer water near 80 degrees now on the
offshore grounds towards the north. The inshore rock outcroppings from
Cardon to Vinormama have produced some quality sized amberjack, weighing up
to 80 pounds, these fish are striking on surface trolled live baits,
preferably moonfish, mullet or caballito. Shallow water areas of less than
50 ft., these fish migrate close to shore during this early part of summer,
searching for congregated baitfish, also these are the same rock piles that
hold dogtooth snapper and various grouper, good luck keeping them away from
the rocks after hooking up. These are fragile reefs, susceptible to heavy
boat pressure, not an area where the entire fleet can successfully target,
with increased tourism and local population there is added pressure,
additionally there are many more spear fishermen targeting these easily
accessible spots. This is now the peak season for this inshore fishery,
within several weeks this action typically would start to shift onto the
deeper, more spread out rocky structure, such as the Iman and San Luis
Banks, these grounds are much larger and can handle more pressure.



The combined panga fleet launching out of Puerto Los Cabos Marina sent out
approximately 58 charters for the week, with anglers reporting a fish count
of, 1 wahoo, 25 striped marlin, 13 dorado, 16 amberjack, 12 pargo colorado,
10 yellow snapper, 6 dogtooth snapper, 14 cabrilla, 15 jack crevalle, 4
sierra and 12 roosterfish.

June 23, 2013

Anglers –





Well the official summer season has now started, though the weather
patterns seem all mixed up and it still feels a bit like spring, with
breezes off the ocean keeping conditions comfortable. Days have been mostly
sunny, a mix of marine haze and some tropical cloud cover formation, high
temperatures have been moderate, averaging in the upper 80s. The climate
has been ideal, sure would be great if the entire summer was this mild.
Great time to travel to Southern Baja now, airline tickets have been
discounted and crowds are relatively light, perfect time to come have fun
in the sun.



Ocean temperatures have stabilized from Cabo San Lucas to Los Frailes,
where water temperatures now ranged from 75 to 78 degrees. Swift currents
have swept inshore and even though the water is warmer, it has turned over
once again and is a murky greenish color through most of the inshore zone.
Clean blue water has been spotty offshore, most often found 8 to 15 miles
from shore. Swells are moderate now, variable winds have been predominately
out of the Northeast and then switching directly out of the east, before
turning from out of the south. Common pattern that affects the Southern
Baja region each season during this transition period from the spring
season into the tropical summer, by next month these Pacific air flows and
marine moisture normally give way to the sultry tropical patterns.



Anglers continued to enjoy perhaps the best roosterfish action in the past
ten years, with many trophy sized fish of over fifty pounds being accounted
for. Trolling baitfish such as caballito, mullet and moonfish, which have
been plentiful around the PLC marina jetties, have resulted in epic action
for the past several weeks now. Just yesterday the action did taper way
off, as the current switched and brought in green water along the coastal
stretches where the roosterfish had been so plentiful, as conditions
rebound we expect to see more of these jacks providing trills to anglers.
We do encourage practicing the sport of catch and release on these
particular gamefish, not renown for favorable eating qualities, but more so
as an aggressive inshore adversary which sport anglers can only encounter
in certain parts of the Pacific coast.



The marlin action improved this past week, as good numbers of striped
marlin were found in the blue water, most of the time about 8 to 15 miles
from shore, many charters were accounting for multiple billfish days, often
up to five per boat, most all boats targeting the billfish accounted for
one or two. The stripers were readily striking on lures, many reports of
multiple hook ups, also striking trolled or cast baits. No consistent
counts of dorado being reported, but these gamefish are scattered
throughout the offshore blue water fishing grounds, bull dorado to 40
pounds were weighed in, this is the time of year where we normally can find
larger sized dorado, but more often they are solitary fish or in small
groups, unless you happen upon some floating debris which could be
attracting large concentrations of dorado of all sizes.



Other action found close to shore included amberjack, dogtooth snapper,
pompano, jack crevalle, cabrilla and pargo colorado. This action was best
early in the morning and was hit or miss from day to day, but some quality
sized fish were accounted for anglers while slow trolling live baits over
shallow water rock outcroppings, often in only 30 or 40 feet of water, one
80 pound amberjack was accounted for, snapper to 40 pounds, of course many
hook ups resulted in cut lines due to the close proximity of the sharp rock
piles.



Last weekend the local Father’s Day Tournament based out of La Playita,
Puerto Los Cabos Marina, saw 32 teams compete for three qualifying species,
yellowfin tuna, dorado and wahoo, first place fish was a 42 pound wahoo,
runner up was a 40 pound dorado and there were no tuna accounted for. This
week there were a few reports of fleets spotting tuna on the surface while
trolling offshore waters, but these fish disappeared as quickly as they had
appeared, also quite a bit more porpoise activity being reported offshore,
this is always a favorable sign that we should start to see some more
yellowfin move into the region.



The combined panga fleet launching out of Puerto Los Cabos Marina sent out
approximately 112 charters for the week, with anglers reporting a fish
count of, 7 sailfish, 26 striped marlin, 15 dorado, 1 wahoo, 24 amberjack,
16 pargo colorado, 20 yellow snapper, 15 barred pargo, 14 dogtooth snapper,
19 cabrilla, 14 pompano, 8 sierra and 230 roosterfish.

Weekend Fishing Forecast:
Mix bag of weather forecast for the weekend. Skeena very high but remains borderline fishable. Kalum is good for Chinook on the lower end. Steelhead on the Kalum is over. Try fishing for Chinook on the Exchamsiks and Kasiks the in the clean water below the highway 16 bridge. Chinook is closed above the bridges. Kitimat River is very good for Chinook. This river might be the 'best bet' for Chinook. Lots of BIG fish still in the channel heading for the river. Upper Lakelse Trout fishing is good, but water is high. Lakelse River Bridge should be fishing good for Chinook. Lake fishing is starting to pick up everywhere. Ocean fishing out of Kitimat and Prince Rupert is excellent; so is Crabbing and Prawning. Good luck this weekend.

Anglers –



We are entering the last week of the spring season, crowds of tourists have
been slightly lower than expected, as family’s are now going through school
graduation events and planning their summer schedules. We expect to see
more visitors arriving soon for summer vacation time.There was a cooling
trend of the weather this past week, we felt more Pacific air flow and
strong ocean currents pushed cooler murky colored water into the Los Cabos
area. This pattern helps to keep the climate very pleasant, most days the
high temperatures reached the upper 80s and the nights are about perfect at
70 degrees. This transition period always produces rapidly changing up and
down climate patterns, hot, cool, cloudy, windy, then ideal and very calm,
we see fluctuating ocean currents sweeping through the area, anglers find
fishing action varying daily, just like the weather. These patterns
contributed to anglers not finding consistent offshore action, though there
was excellent fishing found close to the shore and this is where the
majority of sportfishing fleets have been concentrated in recent days.



Ocean conditions are now rebounding after turning over last weekend, we are
now on a warming trend, water is still a bit off colored, ocean
temperatures ranging from 66 degrees off of Cabo San Lucas to about 80
degrees near Los Frailes, off of San Jose del Cabo it is now in the low to
mid 70s, this is an extreme variance for a 30 to 40 range.



Anglers targeting offshore action out of Los Cabos reported limited counts
of striped marlin being found, not like it had been, with multiple billfish
days being common. The East Cape area has reported much better numbers at
this time for billfish, with lots of sailfish mixed in with the striped
marlin. Not much activity being reported in the way of yellowfin tuna or
dorado at this time, as conditions do eventually stabilize offshore we
expect to see action break wide open.



In the mean time, with limited offshore action being found the majority of
charters are targeting the epic roosterfish bite that is happening along
much of coastline. This year the season for these prized gamefish began
early and it has peaked this past week, as we saw the best action we have
seen in many years for larger trophy sized fish, with big numbers of
roosterfish in the 30 to 70 pound class reported every day. The roosters
were striking on caballito and moonfish, slowly trolled along the beach
stretches, just outside the breaker zone. With practically the entire fleet
now targeting this bite, it will be interesting to see how long this
fishery can remain productive, heavy boat pressure seems to result in
negative impact.



Roosterfish are a migratory species, following their food source, they are
members of the jack family, extremely powerful fighters, unpredictably
acrobatic at times, reaching sizes up to 100 pounds and they are native to
a limited range on the west coast of Pacific waters. Anglers travel from
around the world to target these prized fighting gamefish. This is a unique
fishery, very fragile and needs protection. This year with so many of
numbers of roosterfish schooling in the area we have witnessed a over kill
of these economically valuable sport fish, these fish are not known for the
eating qualities, but rather for their powerful screaming runs and after
these fish are landed they should always be released as carefully as
possible. Local residents do really enjoy eating these dark fleshed jacks
and this has created a profitable commercial market. Combined with a lack
of other normal commercial species recently available, fleets have been
exploiting this fishery to the limits, hauling in crate after crate of
roosterfish to be shipped off to markets.



As ocean currents are warming again, we are seeing improved action over the
inshore rocky structure for a mix of other species, such as pompano,
cabrilla, amberjack, dogtooth snapper and pargo cororado, this action
tapered way off during the recent water, but the past few days we have seen
some amberjack to 65 pounds and quality snapper as well. Bait supplies have
remained steady for caballito, moonfish, some mullet, but no sardinas are
available. This available bait source is being netting in the marina
channel.



The combined panga fleet launching out of Puerto Los Cabos Marina sent out
approximately 72 charters for the week, with anglers reporting a fish count
of, 1 sailfish, 9 striped marlin, 8 dorado, 31 amberjack, 18 pargo
Colorado, 22 yellow snapper, 18 barred pargo, 22 dogtooth snapper, 20
cabrilla, 8 pompano, 12 sierra, 45 jack crevalle and 350 roosterfish.



Good fishing, Eric

Anglers –

Late spring crowds of tourists are relatively light, as many families are busy
preparing for school graduation events and in planning stages for their summer
activities. Ideal time to travel to Southern Baja, weather is not too warm yet,
highs near 90 degrees and Pacific breezes have kept conditions comfortable. Southern
swells are now steady and are attracting surfers from around the world. Ocean water
temperatures are on the rise, now ranging from the mid to upper 70s throughout the
zone, from Cabo San Lucas to north of Los Frailes. There were some unpredictable
shifting winds on some days, but for the most part anglers found very comfortable
offshore conditions. Most of charters fleets are concentrating efforts in the
direction of warmer currents, the water temperatures on the Pacific Banks remain in
the 60s.

There are more mullet moving along inshore stretches, but not in massive schools as
we have seen in past seasons, most common baitfish available through the commercial
bait suppliers were caballito, being found in the marina area, with some moonfish,
jurelito and mullet mixed in. Ballyhoo are being sold by suppliers, they were good
offshore baits to rig for striped marlin or dorado.

Striped marlin action has been found scattered all throughout the zone, most of the
time from 5 to 20 miles from shore, the stripers were striking on lures and various
baits. No huge numbers, but some charters were accounting for multiple fish days. On
the Gordo Banks and other high spots, anglers were able to find bolito and skipjack,
trolling small hoochies early in the morning was the best chance, these preferred
baitfish were working well for surface trolling. Dorado are being encountered in
limited numbers, scattered throughout offshore grounds, there were isolated reports
of finding larger concentrations of dorado associated with floating debris, but
other than that most charters did well to find just one dorado. This is the season
when we typically see a greater percentage of large sized dorado and recently there
have been a few nice bulls to 35 pounds accounted for.

Only an occasional report of any yellowfin tuna action, mostly smaller sized, found
while trolling on the normal offshore marlin grounds. With the ocean conditions
shaping up how they are, we do expect to hear more reports of tuna activity. Same
story for wahoo, only a handful of these elusive speedsters were being reported,
though you never know, these fish do really prefer ocean currents that average in
the upper 70s, we are nearing that now, so anything could happen if anglers are at
the right sport at the correct time.

Roosterfish action remained steady inshore, every day we are hearing of fish in the
40 pound or larger class being hooked into while slow trolled just outside of the
surf zone. The season started early for these prized fighting gamefish and is still
going strong. Despite locals enjoy capturing and eating these jacks, these fish have
dark red meat, can grow to 100 pounds, they are not known for eating quality, but
rather for their aggressive surface strikes, unpredictable acrobatics and powerful
runs, anglers need to take the future protection of this species into their own
hands and practice the sport of catch and release.

Same story should be mentioned for striped marlin, this so called protected gamefish
species is being blatantly exploited, sold commercially as though there are not even
any laws against this illegal black market business. Whatever the problem, lack of
official personnel or particular priorities, lead to this sad situation, while costs
of local fishing licenses have reached inflated rates, certainly there should be
funds to enforce existing regulations. Further thoughts also have to go in the
direction of why authorities continue to allow commercial inshore gill netting to be
practiced, this form of fishing does irreversible damage to this fragile fishery,
something has to be done to abolish these gillnets before they completely destroy
this unique and diverse World Class fishery.

This is now the season when dogtooth snapper, pargo colorado, amberjack, pompano,
leopard grouper and other species follow baitfish schools close to shore and this
action had showed great early season promise, but with recent sightings of expanses
of set gill nets, this has coincided with a sharp drop off on inshore action for
anglers. Global population increases commercial pressure on this fragile inshore
fishery, the situation needs to be monitored and given a chance to survive.

The combined local panga fleets launching from La Playita, Puerto Los Cabos Marina
sent out approximately 70 charters this past week and anglers reported a fish count
of: 4 sailfish, 22 striped marlin, 2 wahoo, 9 hammerhead shark, 5 yellowtail, 18
amberjack,
16 cabrilla, 24 dorado, 55 various pargo species, 18 dogtooth snapper, 14 sierra, 4
yellowfin tuna, 16 pompano, 32 jack crevalle and 135 roosterfish.


Good fishing, Eric
