February 7, 2021

As we start the new month of February there are light numbers of tourists
arriving, this is mainly due to ongoing Covid pandemic and the new
requirements being put in place for travelers. We are hoping that by spring
season we might see an improvement of this situation. The Los Cabos area
relies entirely on tourist trade for the local economy and without this
income people cannot support themselves and families.

We have felt a warming trend this past week, we saw high temperatures up to
80 degrees, mostly clear sunny skies. Winds were still unpredictable,
though the forecast for the coming week looks very calm, favorable to help
stabilize ocean conditions. Ocean temperature has been in the 70 to72
degree range, clarity was changing daily with the strong currents that have
been pushing through. Overall the water was appearing cleaner on the
grounds near the Iman Bank. This is where in recent days the majority of
the light crowds of charters have been concentrated.

Every day we were seeing a handful of yellowfin tuna landed, anglers were
fortunate to land one of these tuna, some charters even reported a couple
of these fish. The yellowfin were very finicky, but could be enticed with
persistence and patience using a combination of sardinas, caballito, strips
of squid or skipjack. Average size of the tuna were in the 50 to 80 lb.
class. On these same grounds and on other rocky high sports anglers found a
mix of bottom species. Though the bottom bite with the strong currents
running was not consistent, more bonito and black skipjack than anything
else, a few varieties of pargo/snapper, an occasional cabrilla, amberjack
or yellowtail. Strong currents were a problem this past week, we do
anticipate this pattern to change and should help improve the all-around
action. Also in recent days red crabs were starting to appear on the
surface, these can be used for red snapper bait, with calmer conditions
this could develop into something.

Other options were found closer to shore, mainly in the southern zone
towards Cabo San Lucas, where sierra, skipjack and triggerfish were the
main species encountered, still spotty from day to day, no consistent hot
spot now. A few dorado are still hanging around in the cooler waters, found
scattered in small schools, most of these smaller sized fish.

Lots of whales throughout the region, peak season will continue for at
least another month. Sea lions, turtles and manta rays also providing
sightseeing entertainment.

Good fishing, Eric

January 31, 2021

With new international travel restrictions now in place we have seen a
noticeable lack of tourists, though Los Cabos resorts are now offering the
required Covid 19 tests easily on site, needed for return trip. So
hopefully this will encourage more people to travel to Southern Baja in the
coming months. Weather followed normal patterns, scattered cloud cover,
though no precipitation this week, winds out of if the north, increased
some over last week, but there are cycles of calmer conditions mixed in,
high temperatures averaging 75 degrees.

Ocean conditions showed improvement from the Gordo Banks and towards San
Luis Bank, water temperatures averaged 70 to 72 degrees and clarity was now
cleaner than the previous week, there were also more signs of baitfish
schools on the same fishing grounds. In the marina area bait vendors are
offering sardinas, some caballito, mackerel and ballyhoo.

There was a lack of anglers though, not much activity for charters now.
Most of the charters have been concentrating on the areas from straight
offshore and north to Gordo and San Luis Banks. The highlight of the week
was a few quality grade yellowfin tuna landed that weighed in the 80 to 100
lb. class. A lot of patience and persistent was needed, because these tuna
were elusive, but at least a few more than previous weeks were accounted
for. Many local skippers who do not have charter work now are giving these
yellowfin a try. It is not always the normal time of year to find these
tuna n these high spots, but every year can vary.

Not much activity reported for billfish, water has been green on the normal
grounds, but we do see conditions improving now, winds were a contributing
factor and then there is also a lack of anglers. A handful of dorado were
found scattered throughout the region, a couple of them over 20 lb.
Limited numbers of sierra now along the shoreline, a mix of various
snappers, pompano, bonito, triggerfish, cabrilla, amberjack, yellowtail
found off of the rocky piles, though wind made this tough many days. We
look forward to some more steady weather and a warming trend, this should
help to improve the all-around action. February can be a very unpredictable

We enjoyed variable winter time conditions in Southern Baja this past week.
High temperatures averaging 75 degrees, more cloud cover and even had some
measurable rain fall on Wednesday, generally lighter winds, predominately
from the north, though not as persistent as they were in past weeks. Light
crowds of tourists now arriving, looks to be the predicted pattern for the
coming months, until Covid induced regulations are simplified or eased and
vaccinations are made readily available to the general public. In the
meantime all local businesses supported by the tourist industry will be
optimistically waiting for the situation to improve.

In the direction of the Sea of Cortez the ocean currents been green, as the
same East Cape conditions have now swept onto local grounds. Clarity has
fluctuated, but overall water color has been very greenish, though off of
Cabo San Lucas currents have been much cleaner. Over the weekend though
there were reports of slight improvement north of the Gordo Banks to around
San Luis, a couple of wahoo hook ups were reported. On the Gordo Banks
there was a showing of yellowfin tuna and at least one 80 lb. class
yellowfin was landed, other hook ups were lost, not many boats were on the
spot when the tuna did show up, drifting with sardinas was the method they
used to entice the strikes. So maybe something will develop with this,
providing conditions do stabilize some more. Ocean water temperature has
varied on areas, day to day as well, ranging from 67 to 74 degrees.

There has been plenty of bait in the area, charters are reportedly seeing
large concentrations of baitfish on local grounds, though this did not mean
that the gamefish were easy for anglers to find. Bait vendors are offering
sardinas, caballito, mackerel and ballyhoo. Dorado are being found in
limited numbers, mainly around concentrations of baitfish and often on the
same offshore billfish grounds. With a handful of these dorado being bulls
over 20 lb.

We saw a little more variety and size of fish found off of the shallow
rocky structure. Though this action just now seems to be showing signs of
activity, this week we saw amberjack, cabrilla, bonito, red snapper and
triggerfish. We do anticipate that this type of action improves the next
couple of months. Along the shore we saw a little more action for the
sierra, they had become scarce in past seeks, so hopefully this is a
favorable sign that these cold water fish will rebound.

Billfish action was more scattered now, main species is the striped marlin,
sizes averaging 70 to 100 lb. No great concentration in any particular
area, we should see steady improvement with greater numbers of stripers, as
ocean conditions improve with more steady weather patterns.

January 17, 2021

Another quiet week as far as numbers of tourists arriving. With Covid
worries and political unrest we expect to see similar patterns of light
crowds until at least spring time. January and February are normally the
coolest months of the year throughout the northern hemisphere and recently
we have felt the chill, highs are reaching about 75 degrees and lows in the
mid-50s, though days have been clear and sunny. Winds this past week were
not as persistent from the north, most days picking up late morning. Colder
water conditions have swept into local waters, we have seen ocean
temperatures ranging from 67 to 72 degrees. Changing from day to day, as
currents swirl in and out, also pushing in green unfavorable water. With
the cleaner and warmer areas now found in the direction of Cabo San Lucas.

For the limited numbers of anglers now in town, they have found supplies of
sardinas, ballyhoo, caballito, mackerel and sardineta. Charters have been
going in different directions in search of better opportunities. Action
around the Gordo Banks has slowed way down from how it had been for the
past month, as these grounds had cold green water contribute to shutting
down the bite. Though as currents shift and north winds reside, things can
change, on Friday there was one quality yellowfin tuna of 85 lb. hauled in
off of a super panga. Through the week we only saw a few of the smaller
sized wahoo landed during the first days of the period, also a couple of
other tuna were accounted for or hooked up and lost. Fewer numbers of
dorado as well, as the turned over conditions has these tropical species

Offshore the main action has been for striped marlin, also a few dorado
being found on these same grounds. Still no large concentrations of the
marlin, though lots of schooling mackerel and sardineta are being seen off
of the San Jose del Cabo hotel zone, several miles offshore. The marlin
being found now are scattered, depending where the blue water is found,
recently five to 10 miles offshore. We do expect the billfish action to
improve as these off colored conditions rebound. There were some reports of
yellowfin tuna being found further offshore associated with moving
porpoise, though this has been a very hit or miss deal so far.

It is the time of year when more bottom structure fishing starts up, though
so far we have not seen anything other than a handful of bonito, smaller
snapper or cabrilla. We should start seeing improved bottom action and are
hoping that this colder water brings in the yellowtail. Along the shore
there have been fewer numbers of sierra than we would expect for this time
frame, off colored currents seem to be issue with these species as well. So
as weather does stabilize we do expect the all-around action to improve.
This is a normal transition period we are now going through. This time of
year is never really peak season for any of the more popular glamorous
gamefish, though as ocean changes so can the bite, from week to week. Lot
of whales now on the same fishing grounds, as well as some sea lions,
turtles and manta rays, all adding to the experience.

January 10, 2021

This past week we definitely noticed that the crowds of tourists which had
flooded the region over the Christmas and New Year’s holiday season, have
dropped off considerably and it looks like the coming winter months will
continue along such patterns, as the world wide situation with the ongoing
Covid pandemic continues, as vaccines have just started to be administered
and in additional there have been new strains of the same virus breaking
out, we will all hope for the best, that this situation stabilizes and we
can once again begin to return to our normal routines.

Cooler winter season conditions are now prevailing, high temperatures
averaging about 75 degrees and with lows of 55 degrees. Though overall the
climate has been very pleasant, definitely a comfortable winter
environment, with warm clear and sunny skies. The northern winds resided
early in the week and ocean conditions were much more comfortable. The cold
and green currents continue to progressing move in a southern direction
from north of Los Frailes, now these currents have now pushed as far as Red
Hill off of San Jose del Cabo. Ocean temperature locally is now in the 68
to 71 degree range.

The Gordo Banks for the last several weeks has been producing the best
overall fishing action. With lots of juvenile sized wahoo concentrated on
this high spot, anglers were finding excellent action for fish in the 8 to
15 lb., occasionally larger. Casting chrome patterned jigs was probably the
most productive technique, also sardinas, ballyhoo, caballito and trolled
Rapalas. There has been heavy pressure on these grounds, since the word of
the action spreads quickly and then we have the spear fishermen, who for
some unschooled reason believe that it is perfectly okay to move in and get
in the water with their spears directly next to where the already congested
rod and reel angler fleets are concentrated, established, while mainly
drift fishing, strange unprecedented situation has now developed. What
happened to any etiquette or reasonable sense? We thought that there were
regulations in place where this activity was to be keep a certain safe
distance apart to avoid any conflicts or injury.

With cold green current now upon the Gordo Banks the action has slowed and
become far less consistent than in previous weeks, this will be time when
fleets start to concentrate more along the shore for sierra, as well as the
shallow water structure, for a variety of species. Striped marlin action
will be the main option further offshore, as this action will be now more
prevalent in the direction of the Sea of Cortez and not on the Pacific. As
the marlins predominate food source has now migrating in this same

There are still some dorado being encountered, though in the cooler green
conditions, the numbers are much less. Sizes varied, a few nicer sized
bulls were accounted for, found on the same marlin grounds further from
shore. In the coming weeks the key to offshore success will be to find the
best looking conditions and concentrate on these locations.

Recently we have not seen much off the bottom besides some bonito, smaller
red snapper and triggerfish. Maybe this will be the year that we see a
strong run of yellowtail appear on local grounds. We will optimistically
wait and see what develops this winter season. In the meantime there have
strong numbers of whales being sighted, this is now peak season to view
these mammals in local waters.
