Fly Hooker Fish Report, October 13, 2013

fly-hooker-sportfishing-caboCabo Fish Report October 6 to 13, 2013

Fly Hooker Sportfishing. 

I am back and doing the weekly report again after nine months.  

WEATHER: We have continued with daytime temperatures in the low 90′s and the evenings and nights in the low to mid 80′s. This morning at 5:45 it was a warm and slightly humid 88 degrees. While the week started out sunny with hardly any clouds in the sky, we ended the week under a cloud layer being pushed up from the south by what was a tropical depression and is now a tropical storm named Octave. The clouds do hold some rain, as we experienced on Saturday with just enough to leave dots all over the dusty cars.

WATER: On average this week the water on the Pacific side of the Cape was right around 85 degrees while the water on the Cortez side was 86.5 degrees. We did have a bit of a flare or really warm water, to almost 90 degrees, out around the 1,000 fathom line on the Cortez side early in the week, and a bit of an upwelling of cool water of 81 degrees along the beach on the Pacific side mid week. This cool water was from the 10th to the 12th. Surface conditions continued to be almost perfect with small swells and little wind near Cabo, while up around the Los Arcos area on the Pacific side it started to pick up some chop. As Tropical Storm Octave develops and approaches we will continue to see an increase in swells size and wind speed. As of this morning the storm was located 400 miles to the south and moving toward the northwest with sustained winds of 45 mph out 50 miles from the center. It is forecast to pass to the west of us and cross land after turning to the east in four days. The swells picked up enough for the Port Captain to close the port to Pangas, open only to boats with cabins, and requiring the boats to remain within a reasonable distance and report in by radio upon their return. I will update this information as it changes on my blog at captgeo.wordpress.com.

BAIT: Caballito, and frozen Ballyhoo could be had for $3 each this week, and there were very few Sardinas available.
