This week we had a brief encounter with Tropical Storm “Bud”, which thankfully did not do damage to the region. Winds of 40 mph and rain did however mean that port was closed Wednesday thru Friday. In the days before this though, the fishing was pretty decent! Still a good marlin bite, and more tuna than seen in the previous week. With three days unable to go fishing, our boats still caught more fish than last week, with tuna numbers growing immensely. We’re hoping this storm may bring a few more mahi-mahi around, as this week again, we only saw one caught.
The best day for marlin this past week was June 10th, with all of our boats catching upwards of three striped marlin each. The top marlin boat this week was the 42 ft Yahoo, with 6 striped marlin caught and released. The marlin were caught out at Destiladeras, and weighed about 130 to 150 lbs each. Anglers were Elise and Thad Devier from Louisiana.
Then we had the 28ft Adriana catch and release 3 striped marlin too and 28ft Andrea, caught and released 3 striped marlin as well. The Andrea had anglers Henry and David Ansley from Saint Simons Island, Georgia, a father and son duo, who fished three days with us and basically got the best of every species up for grabs in Cabo at the moment. They were in Cabo celebrating David's recent graduation from med school.They released their marlin all between 100 and 150 lbs out at Destiladeras, which hit on mackerel and sardines. The next day they fished again with the Andrea and caught 9 yellowfin tuna; this time at about 22 miles South of the Old Lighthouse, on cedar plugs. The tuna were a decent size, ranging between 15 and 25 lbs each. And as if this wasn't enough, their last day they decide to stay closer to shore, and look for some roosterfish. They did just that, with 2 roosterfish caught and released on a half day of fishing, aboard our Pisces Panga, Samantha. The roosterfish were caught out from Chileno on caballilto bait. The largest of the two was a beautiful 45 pound fish, while the other was about 8 lbs. Of course both were successfully released (You can check out our Instagram or Facebook page for video footage of their catch and release).
For more tuna in the week, we saw Pisces 38ft BajaMark have two good consecutive days of tunas, with 13 yellowfin tuna on one day and 9 on another. The 13 yellowfin were caught by anglers Michael Wonser and Preston Reeves from Chatsworth,CA. The fish were caught about 20 miles out of the Old Lighthouse and weighed between 10 and 12 lbs.
