We are starting to get excited about the June season here in Cabo. Things have really picked up in the last few weeks and this week’s catch success amongst boats has climbed to almost 90%. The majority of boats are heading for striped marlin, with up to 6 striped marlin caught per boat in one day, but tuna and other smaller game catches have been equally good. The roosterfish are definitely here now, making for a lot of fun fishing, with some boats catching up to 9 of them per outing! Jack crevelle, amberjacks, grouper and sierra mackerel have been the majority of our “other” species caught. And let’s not forget about our almost 700lbs black marlin hooked this past Sunday; all signs of an exciting June tournament season, kicking off with the Pelagic Cabo Summer Slam in this next week and the Stars and Stripes Tournament at the end of the month.
This week’s top marlin boat was the Pisces 31ft Rebecca, with 18 striped marlin successfully caught and released in 5 days of fishing. They kicked off the week, on May 19th, with anglers from Discovery Bay, CA, catching and releasing 5 striped marlin on caballito bait out at Destiladeras. The marlin ranged from 100 to 130 lbs each.
This same day the Pisces 35ft Valerie found 5 yellowfin tuna, at about 5 miles from the Old Lighthouse. These ranged from 5 to 15 lbs each and hit on cedar plugs as well. Anglers were the Elliott and Reimer families from Houston, Texas. The next day, the Valerie found luck again, this time at Cabeza Ballena, about 4 miles out. They caught 4 yellowfin tuna of about 15 to 23 lbs each on cedar plug lures.
We also had some of the most exciting and fun inshore fishing we’ve see in quite some time. Take for example, our 23ft Pisces Panga Anamar, which caught 1 amberjack, 3 jack crevelle (of about 20 lbs each), 2 red snapper of about 8 lbs, 3 sierra mackerel of about 5 lbs and 3 nice roosterfish, with the smallest only 5 lbs and the largest being 20 lbs. All roosters were released. Anglers were George and Lydia Armistead from Tennessee, which used mainly caballito bait and hoochi lures to land their catches.
