An incredible shut off for the fishing from Cabo San Lucas and for no real apparent reason other than perhaps a bit of a water cooling trend this past week that wrapped around Cabo from the Pacific side to Las Frailes.  We had reports of a great number of 250 lb. yellowfin tuna feeding at the Cabo Falso drop off but not a single bite using live bait and casting right in the middle of the frenzy.  According to Captain Roberto Marques, owner of the Fish Cabo boats, we were in the midst of a tuna feeding frenzy with about 10 other boats and not a single bite was had by any of the boats.  A truly frustrating lesson in fishing.  Our last week's report reflected a fishing bonanza and this week brought the bite to a screeching halt.  The overall fish count for 38 days fished reflected 3 stripers released, (Gaviota IV, Gaviota VIII and Tuna Time, all had a single billfish released) 2 dorado, 5 yellowfin tuna, (smaller fish caught sporadically) 1 wahoo, 24 skipjack, 27 Sierras and 8 Toro, (jack crevalles).

Cabo Climate:  It was a mostly sunny and clear week with a few days of passing clouds.  Daytime air temps averaged 77.6 and nights were cooler and averaged 59.4.  Humidity ratio averaged 56.4% for the week.

Sea Conditions:  Water temps were cooler from the Golden Gate Bank and around to Las Frailes, all at about 74 degrees.  Gorda Banks to Las Frailes at 72 degrees.  Outside the Jaime Bank to the southwest the temps reflected 75 degrees.  Surface breezes were flowing mostly from the westerly directions and averaged about 9 mph with Saturday blowing about 14 mph.  Some afternoon wind chop for Saturday but otherwise, good sea conditions in all out-bound directions.

Best Fishing Area:  There was no specific area reported for the better fishing, albeit, lots of really big tuna were seen in the area of the Cabo Falso Drop Off area.

Best Bait/Lure:  Nothing was working particularly well and a lot of different systems were being tried but without success.

Bait Supply:  Good supply of caballitos at the $3.00 per bait rate.  Mackerel still available on the bank drop-offs.

Mazatlan and The Aries Sportfishing Fleet reflected a total of 18 off shore fishing days that reflected 4 stripers, 3 sailfish, (2 released) and 11 yellowfin tuna for the week in the off shore waters and the in shore super pangas reflected 9 days fishing that produced 15 yellowfin tuna, 1 dorado, 3 white snappers, 22 triggerfish and 176 red snappers.  The sea surface conditions continue to be favorable throughout the area with an average surface breeze under 8 mph with exception to Sunday at 12 mph, all flowing from the westerly directions.

Mazatlan Climate:  Mostly a sunny and pleasant week with a couple of intermittent passing clouds on Friday & Saturday.  Daytime air temps averaged 80.6 degrees and the nights cooler at 55 degrees.

Sea Conditions:  Sea temps inshore at 74 degrees and off shore at 76 degrees.  Surface breezes flowing mostly from the westerly directions at an average of 7.8 mph.

Best Fishing Area:  Most of the off shore catches took place out to the southwest of the Marina El Cid, starting at about 16 miles and beyond, but there was no concentration of fish in any of the off shore location.

Best Bait/Lures:  The billfish bit best on the rigged trolling baits and the tuna bit best on the varied colored tuna feathers.

Bait Supply:  Remained plentiful for the boats for both, fresh rigging baits supplied with the charters and live baits sold at $1.00 per bait.

According to the latest fishing report from Captain Temo Verboonen, our local reporter, the bite was very productive for most of the fleet fishing offshore and included sailfish, striped marlin, dorados and yellowfin tuna and the better action pretty much stayed at the 12 mile mark all week, although it was good enough from about 10-18 miles out front of the Bay.  The inshore fishing continues to be on the slow side with an occasional roosterfish and a few jack crevalle.  The Mark Kordus husband and wife charter for 3 days fished aboard the "Bloody Hook", reflected 2 stripers released, several sailfish released, several more strikes and a couple more sailfish early released and a bigger dorado in the mix, too.  We did focus on the bigger billfish trolling with live mackerels, but had no luck at all.  According to Captain Chiro and Luis, these Wyoming folks are repeat customers that fish with them annually and are wonderful anglers that always seem to have a great time during their off shore fishing charters and we very much enjoy their company.

IZ Climate:  Warm and pleasant days with daytime temps at 84 degrees average and nice evenings at about 71 degrees average.  Humidity ratio at 73.4%.

Sea Conditions:  Water temps at 85 inshore but the water is off-color and green inshore and changes to 86 degrees off-shore.  Surface breezes flowing mostly from the westerly directions and averaged about 7 mph and calm surface conditions.

Best Fishing Area:  The span is from about 10-18 miles out front of the Bay but the better bite area seemed to be right at the 12-mile mark for the most part.

Best Bait/Lure:  The rigged baits were working well for the billfish and the dorado but the bigger, live trolling baits, were not having any black or blue marlin successes this year.

Bait Supply:  The area continues to be excellent for freshly caught baits for rigging and live bait at $5.00 per dozen.

A rather busy week's fishing from Puerto Morelos this past week and it looks like the folks are getting a little tired of the cold weather in the U.S.?  While the sailfish haven't bit for the past couple of weeks, there is still plenty of action for the anglers and most of all, the weather stays warm in this area even when it's raining or the wind is blowing.  This past week's weather was somewhat unusual and a few showers came and went everyday except for Saturday.  However, the fishing was just fine and the fleet reflected a total of 47 days fished that produced 1 dorado, 88 bonito, 13 giant Atlantic barracuda, 10 triggerfish, 17 snappers, 110 chackchi, 13 sawfish, 22 banana fish, 12 kin mackerel, 25 grouper, 2 pargos, 8 blackfin tuna 4 petos and 28 amberjacks.

PM Climate:  Daytime temps averaged 79.4 degrees and nights were near 71 degrees.  Humidity ratio averaged 71.8%.  It has been a mostly cloudy week with a few peek-a-boo sunshine days and scattered showers here and there.

Sea Conditions:  Water temps averaged 81 degrees up and down the coastline from Cancun to Cozumel.  Tropical surface breezes flowed mostly from the easterly directions at 11.4 mph daily.

Best Bait:  The best baits for this area continue to be the on-going supply of the Ballyhoo baits available to our bait catchers.

Bait Supply:  The enormous surplus of ballyhoo baits continue to be readily available and are provided gratis as part of the charters in this area.
