Tip&Trick Description 1: Here’s a fishing story.

Four married guys go fishing. After an hour, the following conversation
took place:

First guy:
’You have no idea what I had to do to be able to come out fishing this
weekend. I had to promise my wife that I will paint every room in the
house next weekend.’

Second guy:
’That is nothing, I had to promise my wiife that I will build her a new
deck for the pool.’

Third guy:
’Man, you both have it easy! I had to promise my wife that I will
remodel the kitchen for her.’

They continue to fish when they realized that the fourth guy has not
said a word. So they asked him.!

’You haven’t said anything about what you had to do to be able to come
fishing this weekend. What’s the deal?’

Fourth guy:
’I just set my alarm for 5:30 am. When it went off, I shut off my alarm,
gave the wife a nudge and said, ’Fishing or Sex’ and she said, ’Wear a
sweater.’

Cabo Fish Report
October 8 - 14, 2012

WEATHER: With the early morning lows in the high 70's and daytime highs reaching the high 90's it's plain that our fall weather has arrived. Soon we should be seeing the highs drop to the low 90's and then we will be in paradise! At this time of the year we still have a slight chance of a bit more bad weather, but our fingers are crossed that Tropical Storm Paul, 665 miles to the south of us continues going to the west and leaves us alone. We had no rain this week in Cabo but there were some scattered showers up in the mountains. With mostly sunny skies we enjoyed the light winds and smooth water.
WATER: Both sides of the Cape had great conditions this week with a bit more of a breeze on the Pacific side, just enough for the most part to keep anglers comfortable and put a light chop on the water in the afternoons. The swells on the Pacific were small at 2-6 feet and spaced well apart. The water was clean and blue compared to the Cortez side of the Cape and the water temperatures averaged a degree cooler at 84-86 degrees with the warmer water laying along the shoreline. On the Cortez side the water was 85-87 degrees with the cooler water toward Cabo San Lucas, and while not as clean as that on the Pacific side, appeared blue. The swells on the Cortez side were small at 2-4 feet. The swells may pick up just a bit later in the week as Tropical Storm Paul may have an effect on their size, but being storm swells they will be spaced well apart.
BAIT: Finally there were some Sardinas available this week since the swell went down, but you had to travel toward San Jose to get them. A scoop would set you back between 25-30 U.S. But they sure came in handy depending on what you were fishing for. Here at home the usual Caballito and Mullet could be had for $3 each, and there were some very large horse bally-hoo at $3 each as well.
FISHING:
BILLFISH: Now for the good stuff as far as tournament anglers are concerned. Sorry guys, good news and bad news for you. First the bad news, there have been no large Blue or Black Marlin brought in this week that I have heard of. Maybe that's good news though, it means that they are still out there! The good news is that there have been plenty of small Blue Marlin caught, and most of them have been released. For anglers that are entering the release categories in the tournaments this is very good news, and for everyone else it is good news as well. In my experience, when you find packs of these small male Blue Marlin there is a big female somewhere in the area. Almost without exception Blue marlin over 300 pounds are female and 100% of the Blue Marlin over 400 pounds are female. The males are like dog heat packs and somewhere in the area there is a big female. I did hear of a big Black Marlin being lost on the Gorda Banks, so there are sure to be plenty of boats working both the inner and outer banks during the tournaments.
YELLOWFIN TUNA: The only large Yellowfin Tuna I have heard of in the past week came from the Gorda Banks area from boats fishing with live baits and chunk baits. There were fish caught every day but there was no real set time for the bite to happen. Many boats spent all morning fishing the area only to leave at 1pm to get home at 3pm and find that the bite started at 2pm. Hey, it's fishing, that happens often! Many boats went offshore as far as 40 miles looking for schools and they occasionally found one, but the fish were just average size, 10 to 35 pounds, and many pods of porpoise had to be found before finding one that held fish. Unless you were lucky, of course. Closer to home it was nice to find the small football Yellowfin and Bonita showing up on the usual inshore grounds between San Jose and Grey Rock. These Yellowfin were between 10 and 20 pounds and almost the only way to get them to bite was by using Sardinas. The bite was neither steady nor consistent, but many of the boats managed to get four or five Yellowfin in the box for clients. This is great news for the tournament teams as we have had a dearth of these fish in our area, and they are a favorite of teams looking to slow troll on the banks and drop-offs.



DORADO: I have changed the status of the Dorado from fish of the week to fish of the month! While not every boat this week limited out, there were many more that did than did not. Most of our anglers this week had limits of Dorado between 10 and 20 pounds in the boat by 9:30 in the morning, then went out looking for Sailfish, Striped Marlin and Tuna. Most of the Dorado fishing occurred on the Pacific side close to the shore, between the lighthouse and inside the Golden Gate Bank, working outside of that area produced fewer fish, but on the average they were larger, some going as high as 50 pounds. Rigged bally-hoo were the best bait overall, and bright lures trolled at fairly high speeds of 9-10 knots did the trick as well.
WAHOO: Wahoo continued to show up in the catch of many of the boats this week, but on average they were not large fish like we see in the spring. In fact, there were quite a few of what I call Wee-Hoo, fish in the 3-5 pound class caught. Almost all the fish were found close to the beach by boats working for Dorado, at least those that were found on the Pacific side. On the Cortez side quite a few were hooked by boats drifting bait or chunks for Yellowfin Tuna on the Gorda Banks or the mounts farther to the north.
INSHORE: In a repeat of last week, there were scattered Roosterfish in the areas beaches, both on the Pacific side and the Sea of Cortez, but most of the pangas were working just off the beach on the Pacific side for Dorado first, then checking in the surf zone for Snapper and Roosterfish. If anglers wanted Yellowfin a choice had to be made between the Pacific and the Cortez side, as all the Yellowfin were on the Cortex side. Boats that did focus on the inshore fish reported few bottom fish to be found.
FISH RECIPE: Check the blog for this weeks recipe!
NOTES: My music choice for this week was a girl my wife heard sing jazz at a firefighters fundraiser. She was so impressed she bought me the CD, and I like it so much I am sharing it with you. Her name is Divier Guive, the CD is self titled and produced here in Cabo at “Home Studio”. If you want a chance to check her out, go to www.reverbnation/divierguive and click on the song Humo azul. By the way, Brian Flynn is here for just a few weeks more before he goes on hid European tour, so if you are here and want to hear him and Mauricio play, get in while the getting is good. Check him out at his site www.brianflynnband. Tournament season is here and coming up in the next several weeks are the Los Cabo Offshore Tournament and the Bisbee Black and Blue Tournament. I will be fishing both so please, keep you fingers crossed for my team, “Sporty Game”! Until next week, tight lines!


GORDO BANKS PANGAS

San Jose del Cabo



October 14, 2012

Anglers –





We are seeing larger crowds of anglers arriving daily, as this is now the
start of the peak fall season, time when weather patterns stabilize,
fishing is great and there is much excitement with the many high stake
tournaments just around the corner. Weather is more comfortable now,
mornings actually have a slight chill to them, days are clear and warm and
breezes are predominately from the north. Ocean water temperature is
ranging from 85 to 88 degrees, warmest areas in the direction of San Jose
del Cabo. There is a low pressure system forming to the south at this time,
but it looks as though it will head west and stay clear of the Baja
Peninsula. There has been a trend for the last few years that late season
storms have developed later in October, with the water being so warm,
anything could happen, we will hope that they stay clear of impacting our
area.



Fleets are fishing in all directions, off of San Jose the best areas have
been either around the Iman Bank or on the Gordo banks, though in recent
days there has been a bite developing from Palmilla to Santa Maria. Most
common species being found are dorado and yellowfin tuna, with a few
sailfish, wahoo and miscellaneous bottomfish mixed in. There have been
sardinas available, some days north near Vinorama and also now being found
off of Palmilla Point, this has opened up more options of where charters
can plan to concentrate their efforts. Lots of boat pressure in all
directions now and we have seen up to a couple of dozen East Cape area
cruisers making the long run south to fish on the Iman Bank, which must
mean that there has not been much action going on in their local waters.



The yellowfin tuna bite has been up and down, lots of skipjack mixed in and
also some pesky aggressive sea lions to deal with. Most of the yellowfin
near Iman and towards Santa Maria have been in the 10 to 20 lb. range, the
larger tuna are hanging around the Gordo Banks, everyday there have been a
handful of fish accounted for that have been in the 100 to 200 plus pound
range, at times biting early and other days preferred to come up and feed
late in the day, no big numbers, but there is a chance at a very large
yellowfin, these fish have been hitting on larger sized whole baits, as
well as on drifted chunk bait. Many stories were told of big fish being
lost.

Average catches per day on the smaller grade of tuna found closer to shore
while using sardinas for bait varied from one or two fish on as many as 15
fish per boat. Action varied from each location every day, depending on
bait supply, sea lion problem and the aggressive skipjack.



Dorado were more numerous on a daily basis, heard of some fast action on
the Pacific side of Cabo San Lucas and there were quite a few dorado around
the Iman area as well, most of the dorado were medium sized, 5 to 20
pounds, a few exceptions of larger bulls accounted for. Once found these
fish would readily strike on lures and bait. Remember to respect the two
fish limit per person for dorado, also try to release as many of the
smaller fish as possible, particularly the females, easily identified by
their rounded forehead, versus the squared off heads of the males. These
fish start to spawn as juveniles and grow up to five pounds a month,
important to conserve the future of this fishery.



Not much being found off the bottom recently, perhaps the water temperature
is too warm and the fish are hiding in the structure or seeking out deeper
cooler areas, hard to say what is going on, a few amberjack, snapper,
cabrilla, triggerfish and even a couple of yellowtail and roosterfish
hanging over the rock piles.



Wahoo are started to show, every day we are seeing a few of them brought
in, some hitting on lures, such as Rapalas, others are striking on baits in
the same area where the tuna and dorado are found, Many of the wahoo have
been smaller than what we normally see, though some of them were up to 30
pounds.



Billfish action has been spread out, we know of one nice black marlin that
was lost on the Gordo Banks, hear about more blue marlin showing off of
Cabo San Lucas, off of San Jose’s grounds there have been a few sailfish
and striped marlin encountered. Lots of skipjack on the grounds and with
the football sized tuna around, we do expect to see some more black and
blue marlin to appear.



The combined panga fleets out of La Playita, Puerto Los Cabos Marina, sent
out approximately 202 charters for the week, with anglers accounting for a
fish count of:

11 sailfish, 3 striped marlin, 17 wahoo, 2 yellowtail, 12 amberjack, 18
pargo, 6 sierra, 7 roosterfish, 440 dorado, 585 yellowfin tuna and 5
rainbow runners.



Good Fishing, Eric
