Sushi Time Fish Report thru the 28th of August, 2014

Fish Report for the Week of the 22th thru the 28th of August, 2014

Sushi TimeA very slow week due to the visit of Hurricane Marie, an extremely dangerous hurricane category 5 that just passed by at approx. 500 km from Cabo, but affecting our sea conditions for three days.  Nevertheless the fishing picked up once the port re-opened to Sport Fishing.  With plenty of Bill Fish and Dorado available as well as small game fish, species biting are Bonita, Rooster, Needle Fish, Skip Jack and Wahoo.  With rainy and partly cloudy days, an average temperature of 90 F, and an average water temperature of 86 F.   With 31 fishing trips provided by Sushi Time Sport Fishing, we had a 96.77%. . . . Read the Complete Sushi Time Cabo Fish Report at LosCabosGuide.com

GORDO BANKS PANGAS Fish Report August 29, 2014

GORDO BANKS PANGAS San Jose del Cabo Fish Report to August 29, 2014
Anglers –

Marie2The week started off with weather changes on Sunday, the arrival of high swells created by Hurricane Marie, this forced closure of all water activities for three days. Swells generated by this powerful category five hurricane reached its peak on Sunday evening and through Monday, nearing 20 ft. high, causing some erosion problems, but overall everyone felt fortunate that this storm system stayed several hundred miles off to the west and did not cause much damage. Isolated thundershowers were recorded, heavy downpours at times, lightening strikes, with some power outages. Schools were all closed on Monday as a precaution.

Tuna_335LBSkies are now clear and sportfishing fleets are back in operation. Just before the swell arrived, on Saturday, the fishing action had improved and the season’s first super cow sized yellowfin tuna was weighed in late that same day, just before the Port was closed the following morning. The tuna was caught by a group of three La Playita pangeros, they were trolling a larger sized live skipjack for bait on the Outer Gordo Bank and after a two hour battle landed the monster, which officially weighed in at 335 lb. So the cows have returned and since the reopening of the port there have been several more landed, mainly by the hard core La Playita pangeros, several very large fish were lost after extended battles.  Sardinas were found schooling again around the Puerto Los Cabos Marina Jetty and these baitfish were the bait of choice for the better chances of all around action.

Fleets reported finding mixed sizes of yellowfin tuna off of Santa Maria, Red Hill, Gordo Banks and Iman. The Iman was producing football sized yellowfin and another grade of tuna in the 40 to 70 pound class, a bit finicky, hitting best on lighter tackle, then the problem is fighting heavier fish that are hooked on too light of tackle. The chance at the cows has been on. . . . Read the complete Gordo Banks Pangas Fishing Report at LosCabosGuide.com

JC’s Sportfishing Cabo Fish Report to August 24th, 2014

Jc Sportfishing Weekly Fish Report.
As the Admiral Seas It
Fishing Report: 8/17/14 to 8/24/14
Stop by Our Office for up to Date Fishing Report.

Hurricane Marie Off Shore Stirring up Seas!!!

The kids are heading back to school in the next week and we will start getting packed  so if you plan on fishing over the next 2 weeks make your reservations now as we are super booked over Sept, Oct and Nov.

Jc Sportfishing Charters is a family owned and operated business and has been fishing in Cabo San Lucas for the past 18 years. Jerry, explains that his charter business is geared more for families and novice anglers, making sure everyone who charters a boat with him have a great time and lots of fun. We welcome families, and groups. We want everyone who fishes with us to take all the sites in and have memorable experience. This is what is most important to us. We have and do a few tournaments each year and can cater to fisherman who might be interested in tournament fishing. Well lets get on with the fishing report for this past week.

WEATHER: Hurricane Marie has grown in strength as it moves out into the Pacific, reaching Category 5 status and provoking dangerous waves along Mexico’s western coast.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Sunday that Marie had sustained winds of 160 mph (260 kph) and was located 500 miles (805 kilometers) south-southwest of the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula. The storm was moving to the west at 14 mph (22 kph).

Swells provoked by the storm affected the southwestern coast of Mexico and the southern part of the Baja California Peninsula and could cause dangerous surf and rip current conditions, the center said.

It said swells from Marie are expected to cause dangerous beach conditions in Southern California by Tuesday.

Hurricane-force winds extended up to 60 miles (95 kilometers) away from the storm’s center, with tropical storm-force winds reaching out to 310 miles (500 kilometers).

WATER:  Pretty rough seas over the next couple days with hurricane Marie passing by us here at the tip. The swells have been big on the pacific and are expected to get bigger abot 6 to 8 feet in height and 4 to 6 feet on the Sea of Cortez side. This should all get better by Wednesday and clearing. Go to Tempbreak.com to check out map. http://www.tempbreak.com/index.php?&cwregion=cb

TUNA: Tuna fishing is very slow and they are still catching like football size fish, which isn’t good. Most have been caught close to the beach using cedar plugs and king busters. I don’t know when Mexico is going to wake up and start protecting the sport fishing and all the tourist dollars that come into the area because of fishing. It seems no one is thinking of the long term affects this will have on the tourist and sport fishing industry. Not only that the sport fishing and tourist industry employee many, many families here in Los Cabos

BILLFISH: Well it has been pretty good this past week for Sailfish and Marlin from the Light House to Rancho Migrano. The Marlin have been caught off shore 1 to 5 miles and have been hitting some lures but most were caught on. . . . Read the complete JC’s Sportfishing Weekly Fish Report at LosCabosGuide.com

GORDO BANKS PANGAS Fish Report August 22, 2014

GORDO BANKS PANGAS San Jose del Cabo Fish Report to August 22, 2014
Anglers –

007For adventurous travelers who enjoy humid tropical weather conditions, this is a great time to visit the Southern Baja Peninsula. Daily forecasts have called for chances of scattered thunder showers, which has been the pattern throughout August, though most of the rainfall recoded, fell over the mountainous regions and the majority of the time in the direction to the north of San Jose del Cabo. Conditions can change rapidly, this past week there were threatening skies at times, but only isolated showers, winds were light and ocean conditions were comfortable. Moderate swells at the present time, though early next week a large storm swell is predicted to impact the area and waves could be as big as twenty feet. This storm surge is being produced by Tropical Storm Marie, which is now positioned to the southwest, rapidly gaining strength and will be passing close by, offshore of Cabo San Lucas. High chances of rainfall in the coming days as well, be prepared to button down the hatches, because this is the time of year that when it does rain, it can really pour.

Good news that more schooling sardinas have been appearing, smaller sized baitfish were being found around the marina jetty, now larger sized sardinas are schooling inshore off of Red Hill, it has been a long time since these baitfish have even been found in local waters. It is hard to say what the arrival of the big swell will do, likely scatter these baitfish. Water clarity has been clear and blue, this will likely become stirred up closer to shore. Ocean temperatures are ranging from 84 to 88 degrees, warmest zone towards Los Frailes.

Sportfishing fleets have been only moderately busy, as the epic bite off of Southern California is keeping anglers busy. This past week there were a variety of gamefish encountered, most common targeted species were yellowfin tuna, dorado, billfish, snapper and wahoo. With the availability of live sardinas this opened up more options for finding cooperative schools of yellowfin tuna, anglers found the most consistent grounds to be off of Palmilla and Red Hill, though sometimes these schools of tuna would sleep in and only bite mid day, Santa Maria and the Gordo Banks also were holding yellowfin tuna. Fly lining sardinas on lighter tackle was the best method to entice action. The majority of these yellowfin tuna were of the football sized variety, 5 to 12 lb., though there was a larger grade of 40 to 55 lb. tuna being found on. . . . Read the complete Gordo Banks Pangas Fishing Report at LosCabosGuide.com

PISCES WEEKLY FISH REPORT AUGUST 16TH TO 22ND, 2014

Overall Catch Success Rate All Species Combined 94%
Numbers at a glance: Billfish 62%, Dorado 85%, Tuna 19%, Other 24%

piscesBILLFISH:  The bite in Cabo has definitely picked up since our last report, with a 20% increase in billfish captures up from 44% to a 62% this week.  Our turnaround may be due to water temperatures becoming more stable and to the moon being in its darker stages. Temperatures on land have been around the 90’s, accompanied by high humidity, sunny to partly cloudy skies, and even a few showers in San Jose del Cabo and the Pacific side.

The Shambala stands out this week, with an impressive capture of two marlin species for anglers Katie Gorman and Kris Couillard, both from Massachusetts, and Deb & Kim Barrow from Washington state not only did they land a 240 lbs. blue marlin, on a green lure, they also caught and released two striped marlin estimated to be around 120-140lbs, on live bait and as if that was not enough, they went on to catch a wahoo, dorado and seven tuna – pretty impressive for this all girl team.  All their action took place at the Pozo de Cota area of the Pacific side close to shore.

The Rebecca also did well out on the Pacific side near Migriño, for Brian and Linda Meadors from Texas. They caught and released three Striped Marlin in the 80-120lbs range on live caballito and also caught tuna and twelve skipjacks – they could have done even better, as they hooked two blue marlin both of which got off, but that left a lasting impression on this couple, for a trip that Brian said “I will remember forever”.

The Ruthless one of our ever popular 31 ft. Bertram’s, caught and released two striped Marlin in the 100-130lbs range, as well as a sailfish estimated in the 80-90lbs range for Kent and Trevor Hughes from Austin, Texas.  A few days later this same boat caught a 252 lb. blue marlin & eight dorado for William Acker from the same town. On August 20th, another one of our Bertram’s, this time the Tiburon had a great day for Brade family from Midland, Texas when they released a blue marlin, just shy of 200 lbs. & two striped marlin, whilst boating a dorado for the table. Valerie had a superb day for. . . . .  Read the complete Pisces Sportfishing Cabo Fish Report at LosCabosGuide.com

Fishing has Picked up this Past Week and Jc is Really Happy!! 

Jc Sportfishing Charters is a family owned and operated business and has been fishing in Cabo San Lucas for the past 18 years. Jerry, explains that his charter business is geared more for families and novice anglers, making sure everyone who charters a boat with him have a great time and lots of fun.

We have and do a few tournaments each year and can cater to fisherman who might be interested in tournament fishing. Well lets get on with the fishing report for this past week.

WEATHER: Well a lot of hot overcast pretty humid days we have been experiencing this past week. Some days have been pretty clear but most days are little cloudy. We even had some midsummer rain yesterday in parts of Cabo and it looks as if the sierras are getting lots of rain every day. Today as I write report it is humid and overcast and I doubt if this type of weather will affect the fishing to much but it has been kinda miserable in the humidity. The season has been one of the hottest I can remember as it has been like September weather all summer and we haven’t even got to September yet, oh well!!

WATER: The water temperature is holding and is really warm on the Sea of Cortez side but according to Tempbreak it has cooled a bit on the Pacific side if you look at the Tempbreak map you will see the water is cooler on Pacific side a bit which is normal but you can see the contrast. Go to Tempbreak.com to check out map. http://www.tempbreak.com/index.php?&cwregion=cb

TUNA: Tuna fishing is very slow and they are still catching like football size fish, which isn’t good.

It seems no one is thinking of the long term affects this will have on the tourist and sport fishing industry.

PISCES WEEKLY FISH REPORT AUGUST 9th to 15th, 2015

Overall Catch Success Rate All Species Combined 70%
Numbers at a glance: Billfish 44%, Dorado 27%, Tuna 22%, Other 27%

piscesBILLFISH: People are so used to incredible fishing in Cabo, that it is hard when we get a few up and down days. With full moon on August 9th and a big moon all week, boats were hard pressed to have consistent fishing – they would do great one day, then were “skunked” the next, for no apparent reason – though we did notice a couple of degrees drop in water temperature. Our seventy percent success rate would be considered decent anywhere else but we are used to spoiling our anglers with much better rates. However, as usual those that hit it did very well. Michael Dexter from Norman, Oklahoma headed offshore thirty six miles aboard Pisces 31 ft. Ruthless, where he was able to release two blue marlin, just under the 200 lb. mark on August 10th. Ruthless followed up with another blue marlin this time at San Jaime for Briana & Ben Moyse from Chicago on August 12th, then did well again on the 13th with their third blue marlin of the week, estimated at 235 lbs.,  as well as a striped marlin for Texan angler Matthew Adamson. Top one day billfish boat, was 31 ft. Rebecca, with Linda & Terry Smith, Mike & Pam Kelleher & Mike Sparkman from Norman, Oklahoma (again) on board on August 12th, when they released EIGHT sailfish and a striped marlin outside the 210 spot – all took live bait. Rick Walsh from Cleveland, an old friend and client, was out on Rebecca on August 9th and managed to release two sailfish, nice catch, but not amazing, so why did he make the fish report? Well he told us that he had a nice tuna on for thirty minutes, with the fish over 100 lbs., when “Flipper” passed by and cut the line with his mouth, true story….now we don’t know if the dolphin (porpoise) was named Flipper but it did cut the line. Not hard to believe as it is a known fact that dolphin and tuna go together. You want to find tuna, then look for a school of dolphin (porpoise) and the tuna will be underneath. One of the better days was August 11th, though when we saw Cabolero catch a 215 lb. . . . .  Read the complete Pisces Sportfishing Cabo Fish Report at LosCabosGuide.com

GORDO BANKS PANGAS Fish Report to August 15, 2014

GORDO BANKS PANGAS San Jose del Cabo Fish Report to August 15, 2014
Anglers –

cabrilla

Light crowds of visitors this past week, as many families are now busy preparing for the start of fall school semesters. Another factor for the limited crowds of anglers is that Southern California is now enjoying an epic El Nino season, where they are catching yellowfin and bluefin tuna, dorado and yellowtail, all in local waters. Weather patterns in Southern Baja continues to be unpredictable, forecasts have called for scattered thundershowers for much of the past two weeks, most of this activity has been over the mountain regions in the afternoon and not on the coastline, though there were isolated heavy showers over the coastal stretches as well. Ocean conditions have varied from day to day, swirling seas with increased swells, breezes from the north, east and south, then the next day would be calm. Charter fleets were able to launch every day, though on certain days it was wise to stay in closer proximately in case the weather turned unfavorable. There is a newly formed Tropical Storm Karina, now heading westward and far away from having any impact on land.

Ocean temperatures ranged from 82 to 88 degrees through most of the area, clean blue water was found within one mile of shore, lots of schooling skipjack now on the fishing grounds, sardinas are now being netted from the Puerto Los Cabos Marina Jetty area, very small in size. This has been the bait of choice for enticing the schooling football sized yellowfin tuna off of Palmilla Point, the tuna are also now found schooling off of Punta Gorda and La Fortuna, the key is obtaining the sardinas, this is a limited resource that really needs to see Government restrictions enforced in order to . . . . Read the complete Gordo Banks Pangas Fishing Report at LosCabosGuide.com
