BILLFISH: 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
