We are seeing moderate crowds of visiting anglers arriving into Los Cabos. Weather patterns have been very comfortable, a bit cooler than we would expect for this time period. Skies have been clear and sunny, highs reached to the upper 80s, with lows about 72 degrees, ideal climate now, perfect time to visit and enjoy all of the available outdoor activities.
Most sportfishing charters from local marina have been fishing areas from La Fortuna Iman, San Luis and as far as Vinorama. Bait options remained similar, with caballito, sardina and anchoveta all available, as well as ballyhoo or slabs of squid if desired.Not much offshore surface action at this time, striped marlin spread out on offshore grounds, 1150 and others, though sporadic bite and windy at times. Very few dorado were seen, even less wahoo, though we did hear reports that near Los Frailes, Cabo Pulmo there was some good early morning wahoo action found trolling rapalas, though this area is far out of our range. Yellowfin tuna were hanging around near Vinorama, though getting them to come up and bite has been nearly impossible most days, as we only saw a handful of yellowfin tuna brought in for the whole week, these fish were in the 20 to 30 lb. class.
Fishing the various rocky high spots, average depths of 80 to 200 ft., using a combination of yo-yo jigs and various baits, produced varied results from spot to spot,day to day, every day a bit different. We saw a variety of species, including red snapper to 15 lb., yellow snapper, barred pargo, amberjack, black skipjack, jack crevalle, triggerfish, bonito, whitefish, leopard grouper and even one Cortez halibut and black sea bass.
Closer to shore there were some nice African pompano founds, as well as sierra, pargo, jack crevalle and roosterfish. Roosterfish are showing up in greater numbers now, though peak season is still weeks away. Beach zones along the corridor reported quality sized roosterfish action.
Good Fishing, Eric
