Anglers –

Noticeable lighter crowds of visitors
arriving, after Thanksgiving we do
normally see a decline of anglers, as
people now are beginning to prepare
for the Christmas Holidays, now just
around the corner. Weather patterns
did finally stabilize and this week we
saw much calmer ocean conditions, no
crazy rain fall, mostly clear sunny
skies, temperatures into the low 80s,
really an ideal climate for this time
of year.

Ocean actually warmed back up a couple
of degrees, averaging about 80
degrees now. Bait situation is that
sardinas are scarce out of San Jose del
Cabo, now being found schooling near
Cabo San Lucas, makes it tough to have
to back track so far. So local fleets
are mainly relying on caballito,
ballyhoo, slabs of squid and if
fortunate enough to find some chihuil,
they
proved the best for wahoo. Some
mackerel started to appear now off of
the
Hotel Zone, still not consistent from
day to day, as water temps cool some
more, we expect more of these mackerel
and sardineta will move in.

Over all anglers found the bite to be
tougher to start the week, mainly due
to north wind, though later in the week
the wind laid down, water cleared
up and bite was good for yellowfin
tuna, wahoo and dorado. Most of the
action was from Gordo Banks, Cardon, La
Fortuna and off of Punta Gorda.
Best action was on bait, some having to
be worked for, especially the
chihuil, they proved to be the candy
for wahoo. The Gordo Banks produced
yellowfin tuna up over 200 lb., larger
fish lost, though numbers were not
great, but with patience and persistent
effort there were some quality
fish. Strips of squid, small skipjack,
chihuil and caballito all produced.

Wahoo action picked up, trolling live
baits was best, fish up to over 45
lb., though some were taken on Repalas.
Dorado were mixed in on the same
grounds, but scattered, up close to 20
lb. Unusual to find some roosterfish
action further offshore while trolling
for dorado and wahoo, nice sized
fish to 30 lb. Also a couple of
yellowtail, one was an impressive 38
lb.
and there was a 70 lb. amberjack, they
were taken while chunk fishing for
tuna on the Gordo Banks. If weather
holds it looks like very promising
opportunities for the rest of the
month. So things are improving after
recent rain squalls, landscape is a
lush green, plenty of warm sunshine and
great fishing.

Billfish was limited off of San Jose
deal Cabo, a scattering of striped
marlin and a couple small blues. Still
better marlin action now on the
Pacific. More whales are now being seen
with each passing day, it will be
peak season coming up for these
migrating mammals. Sea lions, manta
rays,
porpoise, turtles and of course some
sharks, which have been taking their
share of the tuna catch, have added to
entertainment.

*T*he combined sportfishing fleet
launching out of the panga area from
Puerto Los Cabos Marina sent out an
estimated 82 charters for the week and
anglers reported an approximate fish
count of: 2 blue marlin, 2 striped
marlin, 66 dorado, 98 yellowfin tuna,
56 wahoo, 4 yellow snapper, 5
cabrilla, 16 bonito, 6 sierra, 9
roosterfish, 5 baqueta, 3 surgeonfish,
2
yellowtail, 3 amberjack, 2 pompano and
30 triggerfish.



Good Fishing, Eric

Anglers –

The crazy month of November has now
ended, this is time when the big crowds
of anglers diminish, as less people
travel between holidays. After dealing
with TS Raymond last week, this week we
had yet another low pressure system
develop and sweep through Southern Baja
from the west, which brought more
heavy rainfall, as well as some wind
gusts that might have even reached 50
mph in areas, rainfall of anywhere from
4 to 8 inches, depending where you
were. The local Ports were completely
closed on Wednesday, reopening about
8 a.m. on Thursday. This has been a
strange season, very unpredictable
weather patterns, though the water
table definitely has been filled up and
the landscape will be staying green
longer than normal. Be aware of the
mosquitoes as well.

Ocean temperatures dropped a bit, now
averaging about 77 degrees, this
latest storm turned over water
conditions, from all of the run off,
dirty
water for much of the inshore zone,
though now with each passing day we are
seeing clarity improve and the all-
around fishing action quickly rebound.
Baitfish were more scattered, schooling
sardinas now closer to Cabo San
Lucas, local fleets ere using mainly
slabs of squid, ballyhoo and what
other baitfish could be found on the
fishing grounds, caballito vanished,
it will be any week now that school of
mackerel and sardineta appear on the
ground off of San Jose del Cabo.

The better billfish action was on the
Pacific, but in recent days we have
seen more striped marlin showing in the
direction of San Jose, which is
usually the trend during this time
frame. Dorado action improved, as more
numbers of these popular gamefish are
showing throughout the region,
majority of these fish are in the 10 to
15 lb. class, some larger. Wahoo
became a bit more elusive in the dirty
conditions, as did most species, but
as water began to clean up we did see a
few more ‘hoo starting to show, the
action early week had been near
Vinorama, but by weekend the best areas
were closer off of Cardon, La Fortuna
and then on Saturday the wahoo bite
broke open close off of Punta Gorda. If
you get chihuil for bait, that was
the hot ticket, some hit on ballyhoo as
well. Wahoo up to 50 pounds were
weighed in.

Yellowfin tuna action stalled out
during the dirty conditions, but now we
are seeing more tuna in the mix, some
from Iman, San Luis, Gordo Banks and
others further offshore associated with
porpoise. Earlier in the week local
pangeros brought in a cow yellowfin of
about 350 lb., not returning to the
docks until 9 p.m. Though most of the
tuna we did see were from football
size, up to 70 lb. Though the cows are
lurking on the Gordo Banks, just you
need to put in some serious time to
have a real chance.

Off of the bottom we saw various
snapper, pargo, bonito, a few cabrilla
and
of course more triggerfish than
anything else. Along the shoreline
there
were roosterfish and some early season
sierra, but with limited bait this
was not a guaranteed option.

Still only sporadic sightings of
whales, but these mammals are now
arriving
from their northern feeding grounds on
their annual southern migration and
will be in taking up residence in local
waters through the winter months.

*T*he combined sportfishing fleet
launching out of the panga area from
Puerto Los Cabos Marina sent out an
estimated 76 charters for the week and
anglers reported an approximate fish
count of: 3 blue marlin, 6 striped
marlin, 3 sailfish, 108 dorado, 68
yellowfin tuna, 35 wahoo, 4 yellow
snapper, 5 cabrilla, 4 amberjack, 22
bonito, 9 sierra, 10 roosterfish, 4
rainbow runner, 4 golden eyed tilefish,
14 glass eyed snapper and 40
triggerfish.



Good Fishing, Eric

Anglers –

Last week we saw TS Raymond pass
through the Los Cabos area, shutting
down
all Port activities on Sunday and
Monday, this during a very busy time
frame when these red flag conditions
are rare occurrences. In another week
the large crowds will lighten up, as
they normally do after Thanksgiving
and before the Christmas Holidays.
Unpredictable weather conditions for
the
past month, more north wind than usual
for this early in the season, also
we are now following forecast for
another rain storm that is moving in
the
direction of Southern Baja, all local
interests are hoping this latest
system veers in another direction, as
we have already had plenty of
rainfall, last weekend alone there were
reports of isolated areas receiving
six of more inches of rainfall, also
some major flooding through low lying
regions.

After the passing of the rain the all-
around action seemed to slow down,
which also stirred up ocean conditions,
dirty water and a bit cooler, down
in the 79 degree range, baitfish became
scattered as well. Later in the
week water clarity did improve and
baitfish were becoming more active.
Some
schools of sardinas were found near
marina jetties, also some caballito,
other options were ballyhoo and slabs
of squid.

The wahoo action near Vinorama
vanished, though by Friday a few nice
wahoo
up to 47 lb. were reported, other
strikes lost, so we are confident that
these fish will remain on local grounds
for another month or so. Dorado
were spread out in different direction,
found more consistently towards
Cabo San Lucas, most of these fish were
under 15 lb., with a few exception
of larger 20 lb. plus specimens,
striking both baits and lures.

The yellowfin tuna bite near San Luis
Bank came to a halt, though the big
news was that a few much Alger
yellowfin tuna were hooked into off of
the
Gordo Banks, though more anglers were
having battles with various species
of sharks, there were some monster tuna
now on these grounds. There were
several very impressive catches
records,, including 145 lb,. 272 lb.
and
335 lb., this proved to be best week
yet for this season on these grounds
for the larger grade of yellowfin,
several other cow sized tuna were lost
after long epic battles. Slow trolling
lovely smaller sized skipjack was
the main producer of these big strikes.
Offshore and towards Cabos San
Lucas there were a smaller football
sized grade of yellowfin tuna, though
that was a bit hit or miss, with some
charter landing 5 to 7 fish and
others lucky to find one.

Bottom action continued to be slow,
mainly triggerfish, an occasional
amberjack, cabrilla, snapper or pargo.
Inshore action was limited,
depending on what bait was obtainable,
jack crevalle up to 20 lb., a few
sierra and some juvenile roosterfish up
to 15 lb.

Billfish was red hot on the Pacific
grounds, but were also starting to move
in the direction of the local grounds
off of San Jose del Cabo, a handful
of striped marlin, sailfish and blue
marlin were accounted for in recent
days, nothing too large, stripers
averaged less than 100 lb., blue marlin
up in the 175 lb. range.

*T*he combined sportfishing fleet
launching out of the panga area from
Puerto Los Cabos Marina sent out an
estimated 120 charters for the week and
anglers reported an approximate fish
count of: 1 black marlin,1 blue
marlin, 5 striped marlin, 1 sailfish,
88 dorado, 65 yellowfin tuna, 5
wahoo, 6 yellow snapper, 2 barred
pargo, 3 leopard grouper, 5 amberjack,
29
Mexican bonito, 4 sierra, 4 jack
crevalle, 18 roosterfish, 4 surgeon
fish,
2 rainbow runner,5 golden eyed tilefish
and 80 triggerfish.
