Gordo Banks Pangas, Fish Report November 30, 2013

The combined panga fleets launching out of La Playita, Puerto Los Cabos Marina sent out approximately 138 charters for this past week, with anglers accounting for a fish count of: 23 striped marlin, 3 sailfish, 47 wahoo, 140 bonito, 10 cabrilla, 7 amberjack, 28 pargo, 22 sierra, 110 dorado and 610 yellowfin tuna.

gordo-banks-Katy-Cavallin-829a Thanksgiving vacationers visiting Los Cabos this week were greeted with pristine weather conditions. As much of the United States was being impacted by powerful storms, in Southern Baja the climate has been ideal, highs ranging 75/80 degrees, scattered early day cloud cover, with plenty of sunshine the rest of the day. Early in the week there were strong gusting winds whipping in from the north, this limited angler’s options for a few days, later in the week the winds resided and ocean conditions were much more comfortable.

Water temperatures were ranging from 76 degrees on the Pacific to 79/80 degrees off of San Jose del Cabo and towards Los Frailes. Live caballito and other jacks have been available, should not be long before we see schools of mackerel appearing on local grounds. Sardinas are starting to be found in closer proximity, but this is still a day to day situation on quantity and exactly where these baitfish are located. . . . .   Read the complete Gordo Banks Pangas Fishing Report at LosCabosGuide.com

Sushi Time Fish Report November 20 to 27, 2013

Sushi Time Sport Fishing Pangas, CaboSushi Time Fish Report for the Week of November 20th to November 27th, 2013

We had some really nice weather this week.  A light rain at the beginning of the week, but overall really just sunny cool pleasant weather.  Normally, this time of the year it can get pretty cold but it is a great time to be in Cabo!

This week was pretty calm overall in boat charters but some good solid fishing with good action on a variety of species, with about 30 fishing trips provided this week by Sushi Time Sport Fishing, we had a 93.3% effectiveness catching fish.

Dorado continued to be the highlight of the week with great results on 8-15 pound fish perfect for lots of the light tackle folks which come with their kids or do not have a lot of experience fishing,  so this size of dorado makes for great sport as well as great eating for a first-timer.  But for veteran fisher-folks we had some good results with 25–35 pound fish as well, which provide a great fight and lots of fun.  Favorite area for fishing Dorado was form Finisterra to el Faro, mainly on hoochies Green/Yellow and Green/Red as well as live caballito.  Read the complete Sushi Time Cabo Fish Report at LosCabosGuide.com

oar-fish-in-cabo-bay-oct-10-2012Based on the results of my stats page for the blog, one of the favorite posts I have done is the one about Oarfish.  We had friends out in Cabo Bay one day when a small Oarfish was seen swimming in the shallows.  They were quick to take some pictures, and these are of the fish actually swimming, prior to people on the beach removing it from the water.  You can look up more information on these unusual fish on the web, but I thought that I would go ahead and re-post the photos, an update if you will, so you dont have to scroll so far back to find them.  Again, thanks to the Long family for the pictures!  Notice the long trailing dorsal filament! These were originally posted on October 15, 2012.

FLY HOOKER SPORTFISHINGFishing Charters

By: Captain George Landrum

WEATHER: TWEATHER: We have been under partly cloudy skies for most of the week and it has been rather nice! I know that everyone loves the sun, and while you can still get a tan while it’s cloudy, it’s just not the same. However, from a fisherman’s point of view, these partly cloudy skies help in several ways. Number one is less glare on the water, making it easier to see and find fish indicators such as bird piles, fin tips and tails and porpoise in the distance. Second is that without the direct sun, it is more comfortable on the water! Our daytime highs have been in the mid 80’s while nighttime lows have been in the mid to low 70’s, and, it’s been much less humid than it was last week!

WATER: With no storms in the area the swells died back down to what we expect this time of year, 3-5 feet on the Pacific side of the Cape and 1-3 feet on the Cortez side. At least in our area that is. If you travel far enough up the Cortez you eventually end up on the East Cape, and there the wind has kicked things up so that a bumpy ride is almost a guarantee. Locally the water temperatures have remained steady with water from the Arch on the Pacific side to Los Frailes being 81-82 degrees, and outside of 10 miles by Los Frailes being several degrees warmer. . .  Click here to read the complete Fly Hooker Cabo Fish Report on LosCabosGuide.com

FISH RECIPE: Seared Tuna Steak with Wasabi Mayo. I like it simple, and this one only took 30 minutes last night.  Most of the time was spent on some mashed potatoes to go on the side and making a small salad.

Pisces Sportfishing Fish Report Nov 16 to Nov 22, 2013

pisces-sport-fishing-cabo-1Pisces Sportfishing Fish Report:
Nov 16th to 22nd, 2013


Overall Catch Success Rate
All Species Combined: 94%

BILLFISH: A bit of an up and down week for billfish as we transition into what is really our fall. Full moon during this past week slowed things down for a few days, plus some changes in the water temperatures and currents, nevertheless sixty five percent of boats did catch striped marlin. Pisces Tracy Ann had the highest scoring marlin day on November 18th, when they released six stripers for Bruce Tysor from Sidney Iowa. They fished in the Los Arcos area and caught their fish on live caballito. Fearless was not far behind with five striped marlin released plus six dorado near the lighthouse for Victor Carrera & friends from Dallas, Texas. Pisces Rebecca had back to back four marlin days with a half dozen dorado as a bonus each day for Aline & Stefan Apostol from Rumania & Marina Sedic & Mike Gormley from Vancouver, Canada. Other boats caught from one to three marlin, with catches predominantly on the Pacific on live bait; the nice thing was that nearly every boat was able to pick up something for the table as well. Pisces anglers caught a total of 113 striped marlin this week all released.  Read the complete Pisces Sportfishing Fish Report at LosCabosGuide.com

Gordo Banks Pangas Fish Report November 22, 2013

GORDO BANKS PANGAS, San Jose del Cabo,
Fishing Report, November 16 to November 23, 2013

Gary with wahoo at Gordo Banks PangaAnglers –  As we enter Thanksgiving Holiday week we are seeing a steady flow of tourists arriving, it has been a busy fall season, next week is typically when crowds will lighten, as many people will start preparing the Christmas Holiday season. Los Cabos weather has been pristine, highs of 80 degrees, with lows in the 60s, scattered cloud cover, but plenty of sunshine as well, very nice climate now, how you wish you could feel and enjoy year round. Winds are now prevalent from the north, though recently have been moderate and anglers were enjoying comfortable ocean conditions most days.

Sportfishing fleets were traveling in all directions, targeting the normal offshore fishing grounds, finding a mix of billfish, striped marlin, blue marlin and sailfish were all reported, with multiple billfish days reported from charters targeting the Pacific grounds. Water temperature are now on a cooling trend, down to 75 degrees on the Pacific and still averaging right about 80 degrees off of San Jose del Cabo and north towards Los Frailes.
