November 22-28, 2010

Weather: The temperatures are still dropping week by week as our “winter” approaches. Most of you will laugh, but it has been a very chilly (for us) 63 degrees in the mornings and evenings, requiring windbreakers or light sweaters. It’s funny to see all our visitors running around in shorts and t-shirts while we are shivering! We had a little bit of breeze this week, mostly from the northwest, but nor a real strong wind. Our daytime highs got up in the low 90’s and we had mostly sunny skies.

Water: At the end of the week we had a solid 790809 degrees everywhere you looked except for the Pacific side out past the San Jaime and the Golden Gate Banks. Once you got about 5 miles past them, the water temps dropped to 70-71 degrees. That cooler water also had a slight green tinge to it, but not so bad that we did not fish there.

Bait: Bait has been a big issue for the past few weeks as there has not been very much of it available, at least the good stuff. The full moon made catching Caballito difficult, the area has not had many Mackerel show up yet so the majority of bait available has been very small Caballito, a few Mullet and green jacks. There have been some Sardinas available up in San Jose.

FISHING

Billfish: The 80 degree water we have had this week has still provided a few Blue and Black Marlin to give anglers a fight, but I did not hear of any that were larger than #250. These fish were caught on the Cortez side around the 1150 and the outer Gorda Banks. There have been plenty of Striped Marlin around, but they have not been in the mood to bite. Boats have been seeing between 4 and 20 per day and most of the time have had just looky-loos where the fish follow a lure or bait for a while then take off. The best catches I have seen have been two fish per trip with an occasional Dorado or Tuna tossed into the box. Most of the fish have been on the Pacific side, within 5 miles of the beach. I think the main problem has been the moon phase as we are just coming off of the full moon.

Yellowfin Tuna: On again, off again, close to shore then 30 miles out, there was no way to predict where you would fins the Tuna this week with the exception of the Inman and Gorda Banks, and even they were iffy as sometimes the fish were there but would not bite. For the most part, boats did not get into any numbers of fish, but there were a couple of exceptions. We had one boat in the middle of the week come to the dock with four Tuna flags flying and each of the fish was over 70 pounds. He found those fish in porpoise out at the temperature break outside of the Golden Gate Bank, but the weather that day was too choppy for most of the boats and anglers.

Dorado: Once again we did not see any large numbers of Dorado with a couple of exceptions. A few boats did come in flying multiple flags and after asking the crew what they had done, I found that two of the boats had found a large piece of wood and had a great time loading up with limits of fish that averaged 15 pounds. A couple of the boats had managed to find small schools of little fish averaging 10 pounds just off the beach between the Gray Rock area and the Palmilla point and had kept one fish in the water while chunking for the others, once again reaching near limits for their anglers. These were the exceptions though, as most of the boats felt lucky to get one or two fish during a full day trip.

Wahoo: As a result of being on the back side of the moon, the Wahoo bite we had been experiencing dropped off quite a bit. There were still fish out there, but not in the numbers we had been seeing for the past two weeks. Fish that were caught were found between the Arch and San Jose close to the beach in 300-400 feet of water with a few fish in a lot closer. Most of the fish were smaller than last weeks, averaging 25 pounds.

Inshore: Small Roosterfish, and occasional Yellowtail, some decent Sierra and an occasional Amberjack rounded up the normal inshore catch this week. A few Pangas got into some grouper and snapper, and a few focused on the Dorado, but the mainstay was small Roosters and Sierra. Both sides of the Cape produced, but the Sierra were more concentrated on the Pacific side.

Notes: If you are getting your own fishing licenses, you must have pesos!!! The people that sell the licenses around the marina can no longer take dollars from anyone. Get pesos the day before! No one has change for your US $100 at 6AM.

My music for this weeks report was deep in the back of my shelf. I pulled out a tape of Pat Macdonald and Barbara K. from 1986 playing as “Timbuk 3” on the album titled “ Greeting From Timbuk 3”, a Columbia Records release. Until next week, tight lines!

November 15-21, 2010

Weather: It is cooling down now, and it seems to be happening a little bit faster than last year. Our morning lows have been down to 65 degrees while the daytime highs have been as high as the mid 90’s, quite a bit of variation. This week we had mostly sunny skies and no rain.

Water: Our surface temperatures were great this week with the average on the Sea of Cortez at 80 degrees almost everywhere you looked. On the Pacific side there was a band of warm water running up the beach and about two miles out that was 78 degrees, and farther out it dropped to 73-74 degrees. The San Jaime and the Golden Gate Banks were 74 degrees.

Bait: Caballito this week ranged from decent size to fish only 6” long, and the bait guys still want $3 each. Still no mackerel available, but hopefully there will be some soon. I know that the bait boats in San Jose are still getting Sardinas, but don’t know what the cost is.

FISHING

Billfish: The largest Marlin I heard of this week was Black that was caught around the 1150 area and weighed in over 500 pounds. There were a few other Blacks and Blues caught, but I did not hear of any large ones, mostly small fish in the 200-250 class. The good news was the numbers of Striped Marlin that were found on the Pacific side of the Cape. Most of them were found just on the edge of that warm water band I mentioned earlier, about two miles or so from shore. Early in the week they were fairly close to home, around the Los Arcos area, as the week went on they slowly moved to the north and as of Saturday were being found outside of Los Migrianos. Boats checking on the Golden Gate and Finger Banks have reported that there is still no concentrations of bait on those humps although there are some areas that have small schools. The lack of mackerel for bait has hindered anglers abilities to hook up, but even so, a good day has meant releasing two to four fish, and a great day has been up to six Striped Marlin releases.

Yellowfin Tuna: The bite on Yellowfin Tuna has been an on-off event this past week. One day they are in one area, the next day the same area is as dead as can be. Pods of Dolphin holding Tuna have been found everywhere this week, and the most consistent area has been a slice of water from directly south of us to just to the south of the San Jaime Banks. This area also encompasses a strong temperature break/current line that keeps moving around. There have been some nice fish taken from these schools, up to #150, but most of them have been in the 20 pound class. There are still fish being found in the San Jose area as well, and boats working the humps there have been doing well using Sardinas as chum and live bait.

Dorado: Not the fish of the week for several weeks now, the numbers continue to be low and the fish small, with an average size of only 10 pounds. There have been decent concentrations of them on the Cortez side of the Cape close to the beach, and Gray rock up to Palmilla has been providing action on these smaller fish. Some boats have been coming in with limits of these, with an occasional fish to 20 pounds. On the Pacific side the fish have been a bit larger on average, but there have been fewer of them.

Wahoo: For a lot of the fishermen this week Wahoo have been the highlight of the trip. If they managed to get out early they had a really good chance to get one of these speedsters. There have been more Wahoo caught in the past two weeks than I have seen in years, and the fish are decent size. We had one client that went out in the morning and was back at 10:30 with one #50 and one #25 pound as well as a Dorado. Some boats have been getting three or four fish a day, but almost all the action has been early morning. Dark colored lures, swimming plugs and live mackerel scad have been the good stuff to use, and the mackerel scad (chilwillies) have been the key to larger fish. Most of the action has taken place along the coast in the Sea of Cortez.

Inshore: Inshore fishing has been a repeat of the past months action as once again as Roosterfish in the petite size with an occasional fish to 35 pounds, Lady fish, decent sized Sierra, small Yellowfin, Bonito, Skip jack, occasional Snapper and Grouper along with a patchwork of Dorado and Striped Marlin made up most of the inshore catch. Most of the effort took place on the Pacific side of the Cape and for shear numbers, Sierra were the fish of the week inshore.

Notes: If you are getting your own fishing licenses, you must have pesos!!! The people that sell the licenses around the marina can no longer take dollars from anyone. Get pesos the day before! No one has change for your US $100 at 6AM.

Fleetwood Mac’s “Rumors” album was my pick of the day for listening while writing this report so I am in the mood to take Mary and Tawny for a walk on the beach now! Until next week, tight lines!

November 8-14, 2010

Weather: I just keeps getting better and better. What can I say? With our morning low this week at 68 degrees and our daytime highs in the low 90’s it could only be better if we had a little bit of rain every other day. Anyway, it’s been great! We only had a little bit of wind the other evening that did not last long and mostly sunny skies every day.

Water: The interesting thing on the water this week was the way the currents affected the distribution on the Pacific side. First, on the Cortez side of the Cape the water was almost a uniform 80 degrees on the surface with small seas and only afternoon chop when the wind blew hard enough. On the Pacific side the currents have really moved things around. In the middle of the week we had two troughs of cold water running north-south, the first one inside the San Jaime and off of the beach where the water dropped to 73 degrees, with 75-76 degree water on either side. The second was just to the west where there was a two degree difference with a three mile wide band of 73 degree water was pinned between 78 degree water, about 8 miles to the west of the Jaime Banks. By the end of the week everything had warmed up a couple of degrees and tightened up, mocing a bit closer to shore.

Bait: Caballito were available at $3 each as were mullet. There were small Sardinas as well at around $30 a scoop. Still no Mackerel available from the bait boats, but a couple of the larger boats have brought a few down from Mag Bay, so perhaps they are on their way in our direction.

FISHING

Billfish: With tournament time over for the year, as far as the big fish are concerned, there has been little direct pressure on the Blue and Black Marlin, therefor the ones that have been caught have been incidental catches. There are still a few Black Marlin out there, mostly up in the San Jose and Punta Gorda flats. A scattering of reported hook-up on Blue Marlin have been made as well with a few brought to the docks, but the largest I heard of was about #300. The big event of the week has been the re-appearence of the Striped Marlin on the Pacific side. While there has been no big balls of bait piled up, there have been small spots of bait on the Golden Gate Bank and along the self off of the Los Arcos area and the lighthouse. Some boats have been doing well, with up to four Striped Marlin a day by finding these bait balls on the depth sounder and dropping live bait on them. It would probbaly be a better catch rate if we could match the bait, but not yet. Also, in the afternoons the Marlin have been chasing the remainder of the bait to the surface and the diving birds have been resulting in clouds of smoke as captains gun the boats to the action, hoping to get a bait in there before the fish dissapear again. While frustrating at times, some boats have been getting four to 6 Striped Marlin a day this way.

Yellowfin Tuna: There were still some nice Tuna caught this week but I did not see anything over 180 pounds hit the dock in the afternoons. Most of the fish were slightly larger than footballs at 25-30 pounds, with a few larger to 80 pounds, but at the end of the week I also saw some that were more the size of footballs and less, down to three or four pounds. All these fish have been scattered in the open ocean with some concentrated just to the west of the San Jaime and more concentrated in the Inman and Gorda Banks areas, but the larger fish I have seen were all from porpoise, and quite a ways offshore. Boats fishing the areas to the north up in the San Jose area have been doing all right using live Sardinas as chum then fly-lining a hooked bait, this has been the favored method for the fish to 30 pounds.

Dorado: These were still a dissapointment as we saw no really large fish hit the dock. I heard of one nice one that weighed 50+ pounds, but for the most part the fish have been less than 10 pounds, and most of them have been caught near-shore on the Pacific side.

Wahoo: The Wahoo bite took off this week with some boats bringing in six per trip. The best time was at gray light in the morning, and using dark colored lures and swimming plugs worked for artificial lures. Some boats were rigging ballyhoo inside a hollow head lure and pulling them in the spread and were doing well with them, but the best catch came from boats using live bait. The bait was Mackerel Scad, and you had to be out at first light to get them, and you had to catch your own, they are not available from the bait boats. Slow trolling these treats resulted in giant blow-ups as the Wahoo tried to eat them, and the occasional surprise Yellowfin Tuna as well. On the Cortes side, between Gray Rock and the Inman Bank, all in the shallow, 300 foot or less water was the best place to be for these speedsters.

Inshore: Roosterfish in the petite size with an occasional fish to 35 pounds, Lady fish, decent sized Sierra, small Yellowfin, Bonito, Skip jack, occasional Snapper and Grouper along with a patchwork of Dorado and Striped Marlin made up most of the inshore catch this week. Boats that had Sardinas also did great playing with needle fish to 4 feet, something kids really like to do and they are great fun on ultra-light gear. Most of the effort took place on the Pacific side of the Cape and for shear numbers, Sierra were the fish of the week inshore.

Notes: If you are getting your own fishing licenses, you must have pesos!!! The people that sell the licenses around the marina can no longer take dollars from anyone. Get pesos the day before! No one has change for your US $100 at 6AM.

It has been a nice, quiet morning, so my music selection matched the mood. Nora Jones on her 2002 Capitol Records/Blue Notes release”Come Away With Me” fit perfectly!

November 1-7, 2010

Weather: Our wonderful weather continued this week with lows in the low 70’s and most of the days in the high 80’s with the exception of Friday, when we had 98 degrees in the center of town. For the most part the wind was mild, the two day of the Los Cabos Tuna Jackpot tournament, Thursday and Friday. We had the wind switch almost 180 degrees and come from the southeast instead of the normal northwest, and it blew at a pretty good clip.

Water: Surface conditions on both the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific side were great all week long, with the exception of Thursday and Friday when the wind changed direction. On those days were were seeing steady whitecaps and rollers, the Port Captain closed the port to small craft traffic on Thursday afternoon when a water taxi rolled over in the surf at Medano beach, thankfully no one was hurt. The rest of the week we had normal northwest winds at 8-12 knots, causing light chop on the Pacific side and almost nothing on the Cortez side of the Cape. At the end of the week we had an intrusion of cool 77 degree water pushing our way from the south, and coming at us just to the east of Cabo, between Cabo and San Jose. This intrusion has caused the warm water there into a small band of 80-81 degree water between the shoreline and the 95 Spot and the 1150. Just on top of the Cabrillo Seamount has been a warm spot of 84 degree water and it is now being pushed to the east. From Cabo San Lucas to 15 miles west of the San Jaime Banks, and to the south of there has been warm water at 81-82 degrees. North of the San Jaime, across the Golden Gate Bank and up the coast to the Finger Bank the water has been 75-77 degrees.

Bait: Caballito were available at $3 each as were mullet. There were small Sardinas as well at around $30 a scoop.

FISHING

Billfish: We were seeing a few more Striped Marlin beginning to show up in the catch reports this week. Not everyone was able to get one on the end of their line, but the success ratio seemed a bit higher than the last two weeks. This may be due to the slightly cooler water we are seeing now, much more preferred by the Stripey than the warm 80+ degree water. The bite was off on Blue and Black Marlin and probably for the same reason, cooler water, but also because there was so much attention and effort placed on Yellowfin Tuna this week.

Yellowfin Tuna: As I thought last week, the amount and size of the Yellowfin Tuna we had been seeing resulted in a great Los Cabos Tuna Jackpot Tournament. I was surprised, as were many people, that there was only one fish weighed over 200 pounds, after seeing several 300 pound fish come in last week, but there were reports of very large fish being broken off. Most of the fish seemed to come from one of two area. Our usual cow tuna grounds this time of year is the outer Gorda Bank, and it continued to deserve its reputation as there were quite a few qualifying fish from there, but the number of boats and the small area, combined in the switch in wind direction made the success ratio a bit smaller than most boats would have liked. The other are that produced well was the temperature break to the west of the San Jaime Banks. There were scattered Porpoise pods all over the place, instead of finding just one or two to work, many boats were finding six or seven pods a day to check out. As usual, the big fish were caught on a mix of methods with live bait on down-riggers working well, live bait and artificials under kites working on the shy fish and lures getting the ones that were not so shy. The largest fish of the tournament was #208, there were two fish in the #180 class, around five or six fish in the 150-140 pound class and uncountable fish in the #100 category. It got the point very quickly that if your fish did not eyeball out at over 100 pounds you could not weigh it, there were plenty of larger fish to get up to the stage.

Dorado: Dorado were a big disappointment this week as there were no large fish caught. The Tuna Tournament had a side jackpot for the largest Dorado or Wahoo of the tournament, the fish had to be over 30 pounds. There were no Dorado entered! The fleet boats did well on Dorado, but mostly fish that averaged 12 pounds, and most of them were found on the Pacific side along the coast.

Wahoo: There were a few nice Wahoo brought in this week, and the winner of the side jackpot at the tuna tournament weighed in at a very respectable 58 pounds! Most of the fish brought in were in the 25-30 pound range and were found along the edges of the banks.

Inshore: Roosterfish in the petite size, Lady fish, decent sized Sierra, small Yellowfin, Bonito, Skip jack, occasional Snapper and Grouper along with a patchwork of Dorado and Striped Marlin made up most of the inshore catch this week. Most of the effort took place on the Pacific side of the Cape and for shear numbers, Sierra were the fish of the week inshore.

Notes: If you are getting your own fishing licenses, you must have pesos!!! The people that sell the licenses around the marina can no longer take dollars from anyone. Get pesos the day before! No one has change for your US $100 at 6AM.

No music for me today, I have a cold or allergy, stuffed sinus and headache so the sound I am hearing are the tip-tip-typing of my fingers on the keyboard. Next week, ok!

Unofficial results of the Los Cabos Tuna Jackpot

It was a naibiter for the winners of largest fish of the tournament. At 5 minutes before the last boat was allowed to enter the marina the boat “Reel and Deal” weighed in their #208 Yellowfin, caught at the Outer Gorda Banks. These guys fished both days there, never giving up hope that one of the big mamas that had been caught in the area last week had left friends in the spot. According to the captain, as the fish was being hoisted to the scales, they hooked up shortly before lines out, fought the fish for a bit over an hour then ran back to Cabo at almost wide open throttle, hoping to make it on time. They did, and the fish ended up being worth $77,000 in the jackpots, plus about another $45K or thereabouts as the largest fish of the tournament. Other winners were the “Minerva V” with a fish weighing in at 158 pounds, and worth $63,000m then third in the money was “Shambala”, who took the $5,000 and $10,000 jackpot on day one and then the $10,000 on day two with their Yellowfin in the #150 class for a nice total of around $60,000!

Western Outdoor News Tuna Jackpot Update

With a total of 118 boats entered into this years Tuna Tournament, sponsered in part by the Western Outdoor Fishing magazine, there were 11 fish weighed in at over 100 pounds, but none of them were able to break the magic #200 mark. The winds switched and came from the southeast this morning, throwing a wrench into the workd for boats that had been pre-fishing, and particularly for the Pangas. Normal winds are from the northwest, offering protected water on the favorite fishing area for the larger Yellowfin, the Gorda Banks. The wind was strong enough that the Port Captain closed the Cabo San Lucas Marina int he afternoon to small craft traffic, such as the glass bottom boats and the water taxis, as one of them was blown onto the beah and overturned due to the wind ans swells generated by it. Even with that to take into consideration the fishing was good. Although there were two Yellowfin taken last week that weighed over #300 pounds, the largest for the first day of the Tuna Tournament was a decent #180, captured and brought to the weigh station by the boat “Afishianados”. They were in the 500 and 1,000 dollar daily catagories and took home money. “KW’s Karma” was in the $2,000 and $3,000 daily jackpots and brought home money as well. “Shambalaya”, with Capt. T.J. Dobson weighed in a fish at #133, and being entered in the $5,000 and $10,000 daily received a nice bit of change as well. A local charter boat, the “Marea” captured the only qualifing non-tuna species (Dorado or Wahoo over 30 pounds) with a #34 Wahoo and took home money. Tomorrows weather is expected to be much the same as todays, with stronger winds from the southeast. The temperature break to the west side of the San Jaime Banks produced some nice fish, as well as at least one of the money fish, but the ride home into the wind and swells was rought. I will have another update, and final payouts after the finish tomorrow!
