PISCES SPORTFISHING WEEKLY FISH REPORT
January 17th to January 24th, 2014
Overall Catch Success Rate All Species Combined: 92%
Numbers at a glance: Billfish 48%, Tuna 40%, Dorado 32%, Other 16%
BILLFISH: Fishing was really good in Cabo this week and although striped marlin catches edged out the other species as the most likely catch, sheer numbers of tuna beat them by far. This made for great fishing because not only did close to half the boats catch marlin, they could also load up on tuna and even dorado which made a brief comeback. No doubt about who took top honors for striped marlin; Pisces C Rod caught and released eight in one day for Nate Springer, Kevin Vivian & James Lambard on January 19th at Golden Gate, these same guys also released four marlin the previous day on the same boat. Other boats caught one to three marlin in the 100 to 160 lb. class. The marlin took live mackerel or frozen ballyhoo and were caught on the Pacific with the Golden Gate area the most productive. Forty eight percent of our charters managed to hook striped marlin. Jamie Price from Minot, North Dakota brought the family for a fishing trip and ended up being the only anglers to catch & release a sailfish a little closer at Migrino aboard Pisces La Brisa. Our total billfish catch this week was 66 marlin and 1 sailfish released.
OTHER SPECIES: It is interesting to see how many large sharks are being caught. For several years shark catches dropped dramatically but they are making a comeback as we can note in recent catches such as a 100 lb. thresher shark aboard Tracy Ann, a 135 lb’er aboard Fearless, as well as a 145 lb. hammerhead on a panga and an 80 lb. mako aboard Petrolero. These catches are considered special and anglers want to keep them, but hopefully more fishermen will choose to release them as time goes one, even though it is a much more difficult task than releasing marlin. . . . .
