*February 2, 2020*

*This past week we felt an overall
cooling trend, scattered cloud cover,
variable winds, strong at times,
predominately out of the north, high
temperatures reaching into the lower
70s. We are in the midst of winter
season now, so these cooler conditions
are not unusual, we expect similar
weather through the month of February,
which is always known to be full of
unpredictable patterns. Local resorts
are now seeing large crowds of
tourists, though not a high percentage
of them are serious anglers. This is
a common scenario, as this time frame
is not the peak season for most of
the highly sought after game fish.*

*The all-around fishing action slowed
this past week, with cooler and gusty
ocean conditions being the major
factor. Best action out of San Jose del
Cabo seemed to be straight out front,
from Palmilla to the Hotel Zone and
north towards Punta Gorda. The grounds
to the north, where fleets do
regular concentrate their efforts, have
been turned over with greener
cooler currents, better looking water
and more schooling baitfish are
presently right off of the Marina
entrance. Ocean is now in the 70 to 71
degree range through most of the
region, the coolest currents are near
Los
Frailes and are pushing further south
every week.*

*Off of San Jose del Cabo there
continued to be sizable schools of
mackerel
and sardineta reported, also more black
skipjack moving in on these same
grounds. Bait vendors have limited
supplies of caballito, ballyhoo and
slabs of squid. *

*The yellowfin tuna action stalled out
through the week, also dorado became
scarcer with each passing day. Early in
the week a few wahoo were reported,
also more dorado, but as week
progressed with not so ideal
conditions,
ocean temperatures cooled and surface
action slowed way down. Billfish was
very slow as well, some days the
striped marlin would be more active,
but
the very next day they could not be
found, again more consistent early in
the week.*

*Not much going close to shore, a
handful of sierra, a few roosterfish,
though the cooler off colored current
slowed that action way down. There
had been mid-morning frigate bird
activity followed, with feeding dorado
found close to shore, but that action
faded, we hope that as weather
settles and we see a slight warming
trend, that action will improve.*

*Currents were swift, but there was a
mix of bottom fish being found, not
large fish, but a few quality leopard
grouper to 15 lb., yellow snapper,
with other pargo and cabrilla species.*

*The weather patterns in the coming
weeks will be a factor as for how the
fishing action shapes up.*

*The combined sportfishing fleet
launching out of the panga area from
Puerto Los Cabos Marina sent out an
estimated 58 charters for the week and
anglers reported an approximate fish
count of: 10 striped marlin, 29
dorado, 1 yellowfin tuna, 6 wahoo, 32
sierra, 8 roosterfish, 13 cabrilla, 9
bonito, 32 red snapper, 12 yellow
snapper, 4 barred pargo, 1 halibut, 1
yellowtail, 2 amberjack and 26
triggerfish.*

Anglers -

We once again saw more numbers of
tourists arriving, winter time
travelers
looking to enjoy the ideal local
climate. Scattered early day cloud
cover,
plenty of sunshine, with high
temperatures ranging 75 to 80 degrees.
We
continued to have the cycles of north
winds, though by this weekend ocean
conditions were ideal, no wind to speak
of, as well as improved fishing
action. Water temperatures were in the
71 to 74 degree range. Early in the
week there was a particularly swift
current sweeping through the grounds
north of Punta Gorda and this made it
tougher for anglers to do much.
Overall the ocean clarity improved, but
at times there were swirling
greenish currents encountered.

Large concentrations of baitfish now
congregating on the grounds just
offshore of the San Jose del Cabo Hotel
Zone, mackerel and sardineta. Other
bait options included, caballito,
ballyhoo and slabs of squid. With all
of
the food source concentrated in this
area there were dorado and striped
marlin found in good numbers on these
same grounds. This is all in very
close proximity of the local marina, a
seasonal event that always gets the
locals excited, sometimes this will
only last for a week or two before
baitfish schools migrate elsewhere, we
will see how this season progresses.

Inshore there were roosterfish, sierra
and a variety of shallow structure
species. Most of these fish were
smaller in size, though this past week
a
handful of much larger roosterfish up
to 40 lb. were reported, also sierra
to 8 lb.

The action for yellowfin tuna had
stalled out during the past couple of
weeks, due to weather conditions and
changing water, etc. This weekend as
the weather settled down for a couple
of days, the yellowfin tuna became
active Friday on the Gordo Banks once
again. Anglers were drift fishing
with squid and landed tuna up to 80
lb., all of these fish seemed to be in
the 50 to 80 lb. class. Earlier in the
week there were a few smaller
football sized tuna found scattered,
but these were the first nicer grade
tuna found in recent days. No huge
numbers, but there was a fair chance at
catching two or three of these fish.

Wahoo were scarce with the cooler
water, though a handful were accounted
for on the grounds from Punta Gorda to
Cardon. It seems that the ocean
conditions near Vinorama is now cooler
and dirtier, better looking blue
water now found nearer San Jose el
Cabo.

The highlight off of the bottom was a
70 lb. class amberjack, also we saw a
few more leopard grouper, yellow
snapper, red snapper and smaller
amberjack
in the mix. We anticipate more
structure action in coming months, as
that
is the normal pattern as we near spring
time. We heard about reports of
smaller yellowtail on the Pacific side
of Cabo San Lucas, this is usually a
sign that these gamefish are eventually
moving in the direction of the Sea
Of Cortez, it has been several years
now since we saw a great run of these
sought after gamefish.

Peak season now for whales, should be
easy to spot these mammals for at
least another month.

*T*he combined sportfishing fleet
launching out of the panga area from
Puerto Los Cabos Marina sent out an
estimated 80 charters for the week and
anglers reported an approximate fish
count of: 16 striped marlin, 148
dorado, 20 yellowfin tuna, 5 wahoo, 18
sierra, 32 roosterfish, 12 cabrilla,
4 porgy, 6 bonito, 4 pompano, 38 red
snapper, 8 yellow snapper, 2 dogtooth
snapper, 7 barred pargo, 8 amberjack
and 25 triggerfish.

January 19, 2020

Moderate winter time crowds now,
noticeably lighter, as schools return
to
session after traditional holiday
seasons. Weather patterns are typically
unpredictable, lows in 50s some days
and highs up to mid-80s on others.
Wind predominately from the north, in
cycles of two, three, four days.
Moderate ocean swells, with clarity
fluctuating accordingly to running
currents. Ocean temperatures have been
in the 72 to 74 degree range,
slightly warmer than normal for this
time frame.

Bait options consisted of caballito,
ballyhoo, slabs of squid, sardineta
and some mackerel. Large schools of
baitfish now congregating on areas off
of San Jose del Cabo, more sardineta
than anything else. No word on
sardinas moving within range of local
fleets.

Striped Marlin are following their food
source in this same direction,
though still not in big numbers, but
more this week compared to last.
Dorado were the more numerous gamefish
at this time, found throughout the
area, often close to shore, striking on
a variety of lures, but more
readily on available bait. Sizes ranged
up to 20 lb., though the majority
were averaging ten pounds.

Wahoo action rebounded somewhat this
week, as we saw ocean temperatures
remain warm enough to keep these fish
in the area. Still this action was
more sporadic, most strikes were
reported from Punta Gorda to Vinorama.
Sizes were all the way from sierra
sized wahoo, up to 45 lb. Ballyhoo and
caballito both produced a higher
percentage of strikes.

Juvenile sized roosterfish were most
common, though a few much larger
roosters in the mix and we are now
seeing more sierra found along local
beach stretches. At times frigate birds
could be seen circling and diving
closer to shore, especially mid-
morning, this activity was typically
associated with feeding dorado.

Yellowfin tuna action was spotty, but
we are seeing limited numbers of tuna
in the 10 to 25 lb. class taken through
the inshore zone, seen more near
Cardon and La Fortuna recently.
Striking on smaller sized lures and
while
drift fishing with strips of squid.

Not much going off the bottom,
commercial fleet has concentrated on
the red
snapper, not much red crab surface
activity this past week. A few cabrilla
taken off of the high spots, bonito,
pargo, but more triggerfish than
anything else. We look for this bottom
bite to improve in coming weeks,
hoping for a good yellowtail season.

*T*he combined sportfishing fleet
launching out of the panga area from
Puerto Los Cabos Marina sent out an
estimated 68 charters for the week and
anglers reported an approximate fish
count of: 11 striped marlin, 160
dorado, 42 yellowfin tuna, 26 wahoo,
38 pargo, 22 sierra, 16 roosterfish,
9 cabrilla, 4 jack crevalle, bonito 6
and 28 triggerfish.

January 12, 2020

We noticed a significant decline in
tourists this week, with schools now
back in session and work holidays over,
there are lighter crowds. Cooler
weather patterns continues, average
lows about 55 degrees, with highs about
76 degrees, so comparatively to
northern regions, still quite pleasant
for
mid-winter season. Wins from the north
continues, cycle of two or three
days, then residing, before picking
back up. On Friday winds increased to
20 plus mph, through Saturday as well,
actually closing down Cabo San Lucas
marina to vessels under 40 ft. Sunday
conditions are forecast to calm down.

Water temperature is on a cooling
trend, now in the 72 to 74 degree range
through much of the region, clarity
fluctuated, some very clean blue water
found close to shore, but other areas
being stirred up and off colored.
Transition period now for many gamefish
now, such as dorado and wahoo,
these fish prefer warmer waters and
will migrate further south, striped
marlin on the other hand prefer the
cooler waters, with peak season
normally in the winter and though
spring.

Earlier in the week there was a run of
pelagic crabs, drifting to the
surface in masses on local fishing
grounds, being scooped up in nets and
used for bait for red snapper.
Commercial fleet activity always ramps
up
when these red crabs appear. These
huachinango average 2 to 5 lb. and
reach
up to about 14 lb. Very prized eating
and a valuable commercial product.

Sportfishing fleets found more
scattered action with cooler choppy
conditions through much of the week,
best action was encountered fairly
close to shore, areas from Santa Maria
to La Fortuna, dorado in the 5 to 15
lb. class being most common, also some
roosterfish and sierra, using
caballito or ballyhoo was main method.
Bait options available from the
marina were for caballito, ballyhoo and
slabs of squid. Average catches
consisted of a couple of dorado, up to
five or six. We only saw a couple of
smaller sized wahoo come in all week.
Yellowfin tuna action was very slow
on local grounds, a handful of
yellowfin were landed earlier in the
week
off the local grounds, these fish
ranged from 10 lb., up to about 80 lb.,
though very few numbers. The area that
is producing cow sized tuna was the
Jaime Bank outside of Cabo San Lucas,
several long range San Diego vessels
were chumming these grounds this week,
local pangeros were making the long
run to get into this action, putting in
long days but returning with fish
to 200 lb. This being more of a
commercial prospect.

There was a lack of much billfish
activity, we are hearing of more
mackerel
moving in the direction off of San Jose
del Cabo, this should attract the
striped marlin, some are being seen
now, but very scattered. Also full moon
period as well, as things shift and
weather settles we are optimistic for
improved action.

*T*he combined sportfishing fleet
launching out of the panga area from
Puerto Los Cabos Marina sent out an
estimated 58 charters for the week and
anglers reported an approximate fish
count of: 84 dorado, 16 yellowfin
tuna, 2 wahoo, 4 barred pargo, 32
sierra, 26 roosterfish, 3 cabrilla, 58
huachinango, 3 jack crevalle, 5 porgy
and 22 triggerfish.

*January 5, 2020*

*Crowds of vacationers brought in the
New Year while visiting Southern
Baja’s Los Cabos destination.
Temperatures proved to be cool by local
standards, lows were in the 50s and
highs in the lower 70s, though still
very pleasant compared to most of North
America. Skies were clouds at times
early, with sunny burning through by
mid-morning. Winds were variable, the
period started with light breezes,
though through this weekend northern
winds increased, this made for rougher
ocean conditions and contributed to
pushing in cooler and off colored
currents. We are now in the season
where
conditions are cooling, north winds can
be predominant and patterns can be
unpredictable. Ocean temperatures were
now down in the 72 to 74 degree
range.*

*Bait supplies remained similar,
caballito being the main bait found in
the
marina, slabs of squid and ballyhoo
also offered. Schools of baitfish were
non consistent, very few mackerel, more
sardineta at this time. No reports
of sardinas being available. This
cooling trend normally would attract
mackerel and sardinas as well, so we
see what follows.*

*Early this week, before cool front
swept through, the all-around action
was good for a mix of dorado, wahoo and
some yellowfin tuna, as well as
roosterfish and some billfish migrating
into local waters. Things changed
significantly through the week, mainly
due to cold winds from the north
pushing in off colored colder current.
Dorado, which had been one of the
more common catches, all of a sudden
became very limited and scattered,
same for wahoo, they had been elusive,
but were showing signs of becoming
more active just before the weather
turned over. *

*Also the first part of the week saw
the yellowfin action starting to
rebound for some larger cow sized fish
in the vicinity of the Gordo Banks,
no big numbers, though a handful of
large yellowfin were brought in, the
largest was by a group of local anglers
from a small panga, fish was
brought in a night, weighing over 300
lb. Overall tuna bite had been slow
early in the week, then the north blow,
which helped shut down the wahoo
and dorado bite. But offshore of San
Jose del Cabo, anywhere from 4 to 8
miles, there were rapidly moving pods
of porpoise encountered, with the
yellowfin tuna moving among them. Tuna
ranging 10 to 30 lb. were being
landed, best techniques was drifting
under the porpoise with strips of
squid. Charters targeting this hit or
miss event were finding one of two,
up to 7 or 8 fish. Easy to talk about,
but this is a fast changing
opportunist deal, with windy conditions
making it even harder, also
increased boat pressure would put
things down and charters had to chase
these schools all morning to have
legitimate chance. *

*Inshore the roosterfish action slow
way down have dirty cooler water
pushed in. Bottom action was limited to
various, mostly smaller sized,
jacks, pargos, bonito and triggerfish.
The exception was that we saw a
couple of amberjack and cabrilla.*

*Billfish faded as the week progressed,
though a few sailfish were still
encountered in the cooler conditions,
nicer sized fish which were released.
A few striped marlin found, very
scattered. As conditions do eventually
stabilize and we see more offshore
baitfish, we anticipate the marlin bite
to break open.*

*Many more whales now being signed,
these mammals were alter to show this
season, next two months will be peak
season.*

*The combined sportfishing fleet
launching out of the panga area from
Puerto Los Cabos Marina sent out an
estimated 96 charters for the week and
anglers reported an approximate fish
count of: 3 sailfish, 9 striped
marlin, 61 dorado, 56 yellowfin tuna,
14 wahoo, 8 yellow snapper, 2 barred
pargo, 4 tile fish, 5 sierra, 11
roosterfish, 28 huachinango, 3 blackfin
jack, 2 amberjack, 4 big eyed jack, 6
jack crevalle, 8 porgy and 38
triggerfish.*

*Los Cabos is now bustling with
tourists, many family groups now
vacationing for the holiday season.
Weather patterns have been cooler, with
scattered cloud cover and high
temperatures in the lower 70s, a bit
chilly
for local standards, though compared to
more northern territories, very
pleasant. Ocean water temperatures were
in the 75 to 77 degree range and
swells were minimal. Variable northern
winds, but overall favorable fishing
conditions.*

*Bait supplies out of the local port
consisted of caballito, ballyhoo and
slabs of squid. There are sardineta and
mackerel just starting to move onto
local bait grounds as well, so far more
sardineta. This is attracting
striped marlin into this same area,
despite not being the warm season, we
are seeing some sailfish as well.*

*Most consistent fishing action has
been for dorado, most of this action
found with a mile or two from shore.
Anglers were using smaller sized
trolling lures and various baitfish to
entice these gamefish, average size
fish was in the 10 lb. class, but there
were larger specimens to over 20
lb. also being found. For the last
several seasons now the month of
December has proved to be the best time
of year for these popular game fish
and with the water temperature still
favorable, we expect this action to
last into the New Year.*

*Action for yellowfin tuna was much
more scattered, the bite off of La
Fortuna, where the shark problem was so
bad, faded off, just a few tuna up
to 40 lb. were reported from those
grounds and these were taken on strips
of squid. A few tuna in the 15 to 40
lb. class also were hooked into off of
Punta Gorda on a mix of caballito and
lures, but these were very limited.
Off of the Gordo Banks there was a
chance at a nicer grade of yellowfin to
100 lb., though this was very hit of
miss and involved large amounts of
squid for chum and plenty of patience
to repeatedly make drifts all day
long for a chance at a hook up, mainly
something the local commercial
pangeros were doing. On the outside,
some 20 or more miles offshore, there
was porpoise activity moving in the
direction off of San Jose del Cabo, on
Friday there were a couple of 200 lb.
class yellowfin landed off of larger
sportfishers, so maybe this will
develop into something.*

*Wahoo are in the area, but getting
them to hit has not been that easy,
though on any given day that could
change, best bet has been on bait
versus
lures. Of the wahoo we saw, sizes
ranged 15 to 40 lb. Though one monster
122 lb. wahoo was brought in by a spear
fisherman. On Saturday.*

*Off of the beach stretches just to the
north of the Puerto Los Cabos
marina there were good numbers of
juvenile sized roosterfish, some up to
15
lb., also mixed in were jack crevalle
and sierra. Best bet was with the
smaller sized caballito, if sardinas
were available this action would bust
wide open.*

*Off the bottom there was action for
huachinango, most of these under 5
lb., also a few yellow snapper, barred
pargo and of course the triggerfish
were eager to bite as well.*

*The combined sportfishing fleet
launching out of the panga area from
Puerto Los Cabos Marina sent out an
estimated 110 charters for the week and
anglers reported an approximate fish
count of: 2 sailfish, 15 striped
marlin, 265 dorado, 21 yellowfin tuna,
35 wahoo, 4 yellow snapper, 2 barred
pargo, 1 glass eyed snapper, 12 sierra,
4 pompano, 85 roosterfish, 45
huachinango, 3 amberjack, 15 jack
crevalle and 45 triggerfish.*

Anglers –

Everyone is now busy getting ready for
Christmas, more tourists arriving,
though there are not as many anglers as
we would expect. The typically
weather pattern of north winds
continues, particularly early in the
week,
though there was decent fishing action
close to shore in more protected
areas. The Pacific side was calm for
the most part. Ocean water temperature
was averaging 77 degrees throughout the
local region. There were scattered
clouds and climate was a bit cooler
than previous week, though on most days
highs were at least up to 75 degrees,
no rainfall reported.

Bait vendors were finding decent
supplies of caballito, also were
offering
ballyhoo and slabs of squid, no
sardinas found near San Jose del Cabo.
Some
of the panga charters were able to find
some chihuil baitfish, but this was
not a guarantee, needed to put in the
extra effort and time for this. Most
of the local charters are working the
fishing grounds from Red Hill, Gordo
Banks, La Fortuna and off of Punta
Gorda. Most common species found were
dorado, but also still decent chances
at yellowfin tuna and wahoo.

Off of La Fortuna there were yellowfin
tuna of various sizes found, some
nicer quality fish. The problem was
that there was an abundance of large
aggressive sharks on these same grounds
and they were ready to grab any
tuna that was hooked into, a ratio of
at least 80 % of hooks ups being
lost, so not many charters were even
fishing there anymore. There were
yellowfin found on the Inner Gordo
Banks, though numbers were very
limited,
a handful of tuna over 100 lb. were
accounted for this week, though this
took a lot of persistence and large
amounts of squid, so that you could
continue to drift, while chumming and
patiently waiting for a chance at a
hook up.

Wahoo were also now found on the Gordo
Banks, though they have been
finicky, best bet was to slow troll
baitfish, either caballito or chihuil.
Not many were striking on lures, some
of these fish were also found further
north and off of Punta Gorda. With the
warmer water still hanging around we
expect to have chances at wahoo into
the New Year.

Dorado were providing the most success
for anglers, most of these also on
various baits, ranging in sizes up to
20 lb. Many anglers were able to
catch their two fish limit and release
others. Areas closer to shore, such
as Punta Gorda and Cardon were best for
the dorado, a few tuna were also
found on the same grounds, if sardinas
were available the chances of
getting into the tuna action would be
much greater, who knows when we will
have sardinas locally. These baitfish
do also migrate along the shorelines.

Not much going off the bottom, though
we did see more red snapper this
week, majority were smaller sized, but
a few nicer fish in the mix. Good
numbers of roosterfish were found along
the beach stretches, within a mile
or less of Puerto Los Cabos Marina.
There fish readily hit on trolled
caballito, most of them were under 15
lb., a few much larger jack crevalle
were mixed in. Also a handful of
sierra, but with no sardinas, hard to
find
a wide open bite for these fish. Also
still early in the season for these
colder water species. Billfish was very
scattered off of San Jose del Cabo,
surprisingly there were more sailfish
seen than striped marlin, strange for
