Default Cabo Bite Report

Cabo Fish Report
June 18-25, 2007

WEATHER: It was so nice this week, no hot weather, just daytime highs in the mid 80?s and nighttime lows in the low to mid 70?s. We had the wind start to blow from the west during the middle of the week and that cooled things off a bit as well. We had mostly sunny skies with an overcast morning now and then, burning off mid-day.
WATER: On the Cortez side of the Cape the water cooled off a lot between the Cape and San Jose. Cold water, as low as 63 degrees on the satellite shots but registering 62 on my boat ran from right in front of the marina and up the Cortex and across the Gorda Banks extending out past the 1150 spot. The water was green and did not get blue until you got outside of the 1,000-fathom line. On the Pacific side things warmed up quite a bit with water temps on the San Jaime and the Golden Gate banks in the 73-75 range with just a tinge of green to it.
BAIT: Almost all the bait this week was Pacific greenback mackerel at the normal $2 per bait.

BILLFISH: The most consistent are this week was at the doughnut, 20 miles to the east at the 1,000-fathom curve. That is where they were concentrated and a few boats did as well as two or three fish a day with one boat reporting releasing five fish. There was a nice size Swordfish reported caught this week as well by one of the fleet boats, supposedly in the #350 range. I released one small Blue, estimated at #110 on Thursday as well as a couple of Stripers at the doughnut area and released one more on Saturday. The water was choppy with the westerly winds and northwesterly swells but even with that there were very few Striped Marlin reported up and tailing down swell.
YELLOWFIN TUNA: I have almost given up on the Yellowfin this year. I keep going out and looking for them but have not had a lot of success. I keep hearing of a boat now and then getting lucky with a fish or two in the 50-100 pound class in among the black porpoise, and a few boats getting into fish in the 20 pound class among the white-belly porpoise, but I have not been able to find any of these fish myself. No sashimi for me this week!
DORADO: There were a few fish to 50 pounds caught this week and a few boat reported on the radio of catching three or four in the 10-20 pound class. Most of them were found at the temp-color break along the 1,000-fathom curve and a few were reported from up north along the Inman Bank area.
WAHOO: I heard of one small Wahoo caught this week form a source I trust along with a few radio reports of scattered fish at the 1,000-fathom line.
INSHORE: There were nice Pargo found in the rocks along the points on the Pacific side as well as up in the Punts Gorda-Los Frailles area. The Yellowtail bite dropped off when the water turned, as did the Roosterfish bite.
NOTES: Humboldt Squid to 50 pounds were found due south of the Cape mid week and I baited a Swordfish estimated at #300 in the same area, along the 1,000-fathom line. We spotted this fish jumping. Overall the fishing has been slow this past week, I went out five days and was skunked on two of them catching three Humbolts on one trip, two Stripers and a small Blue on another and one Striper on the fifth trip. With the fishing slow, my golf game got a workout and with a very hazy brain today I managed to turn out a very non-respectable 103 (lots of margaritas lass ninth, don?t-cha-know!).
Until next week, Tight lines!
