WEATHER: Well wind has been plaguing us all last week with one day of the port being closed but in all reality with highs in the mid 80,s in the daytime and dropping to the low 60, at night. We cant ask for much better than this weather, there were a couple days of partial overcast and cloudy but still warm. you ever come to Cabo and spend a little time you will understand why so many people flock here and have a lot to do with the consistent weather.

WATER: Well the water is still like it was last week with not much change. Water temperatures lingering around 71 to 73 degrees, but offshore 5 to 8 miles there is much warmer water according to the map. Really kind of all over the place this year for weird water temperatures. Not the normal cycle we are accustomed to and I think this has affected the fact only a hand full of Yellowtail have shown this year.

BILLFISH: Marlin fishing has been hit and miss. The areas that are producing are up on the Pacific side, but it has been tough to catch them. At the beginning of the week it was pretty good in the areas of the 1150 and the 95 spots as we were catching good numbers of fish on live bait and ballyhoo. Then the fish seemed to have moved to the Pacific up and around Rancho Migrino. So it has been unpredictable as to where we are going to find the fish, but lucky for us, we don't have to go for much of a boat ride to run into great fishing, cause we are in Cabo. Lucky Us!!!

DORADO: The Dorado fishing was happening up on the Pacific side around Ranch Migrinon and the guys were scoring the fish with lures along with live bait, but really not that many. It hasn't been to good, but a few.

WAHOO: A few Wahoo around, but really not a lot. The ones that were caught were using rapalas dragged with Downriggers. I understand this was effective on some occasions this past week.

TUNA: At the beginning of the week we did have one good day for Tuna at the San Jamie Banks. We were using king busters and cedar plugs, but before long they were just gone. That's fishing for Tuna in Cabo, sometimes there here on top of us and sometimes we have to run 25 miles to get to them.

INSHORE: The inshore fishing has been pretty decent with with some Sierras and even a few Yellowtail reported off the Pedregal Rocks on rapalas and jigging iron. We expect when the water has finally cooled some, we will see some better inshore action, on Sierras and yellow tail.

HEADLINES: November 26, 2017:

The Eastcape Compound Meeting is a historic summit place of the Cabo San Lucas Marlin Mafia held at the home of kingpin Chris "the Fish Killer Golden held every year at the famous EASTCAPE Compond, known as the "Marlin house of horror" on June 20, 2016. Allegedly, the meeting was held to discuss various topics including Marlin loansharking, Channel Cat trafficking and Bluegill gambling, using nets in farmponds, along with dividing the illegal operations controlled by the great "Jerry "Crappi Face" Chapman the supposed leader of the Marlin family. With An estimated 100 Marlin Mafiosi members from the United States, Mexico, Panama, Italy, and Cuba are thought to have been at this meeting.

Cabo San Lucas Charters is a family owned and operated business and has been fishing in Cabo San Lucas for the past 18 years. Jerry, explains that his charter business is geared more for families and novice anglers, making sure everyone who charters a boat with him have a great time and lots of fun. We welcome families, and groups. We want everyone who fishes with us to take all the sites in and have a memorable experience. This is what is most important to us. We have and do a few tournaments each year and can cater to fisherman who might be interested in tournament fishing. Well lets get on with the fishing report for this past week.

WEATHER: Really nice days in the mid 80,s an lows in the ladder 60,2 to low 70,s. As pleasant as it gets with light breezes in the afternoons cooling down at night but it isn't as cool as I remember other November's here in Cabo. It seems past Novembers were much cooler but this year and last year also it hasn't cooled down like it used to. We aren't complaining cause its still nice out but just not really cool yet.

WATER: Wow, it seems that we have a mix of cooler water and warm water still hanging in the area. It seems the the Sea of Cortez side has received some cooler water. Right at Lands End of Cabo there is still some 880 to 81 degree water lingering. This is all good for the fishing as it has been really good so we aren't complaining any.!!! This link which will show you water temperatures for the southern half of Baja.

BILLFISH: Well here is what's going on with the Billfish action!! The Marlin have moved north of Ranch Migrino and we are still seeing some great action in this area. Lots of Marlin are being landed in the vincinity of the Light House to San Jamie and up in and around Ranch Migrino. There has even been a few Blue Marlin landed and many Striped Marlin hitting our bait also. If you like Sailfish action you can even get in on that if you head up in the same area the Marlin are hitting. We have seen lots of Sails landed this past week making for some really good Billfishing. Most are being caught on lures and Cabillitos.

DORADO: The Dorado fishing has really just stopped this past week and isn't anything like it was last week when we were landing 20lb to 40lbs all week. I think they might have just moved further north and we are hoping to see more Dorado action coming but it could be coming to the end of Dorado season for a bit. I hope this is not the case but its possible!!!!

WAHOO: The Wahoo fishing is also very good up and around Rancho Migrino and most fish are being caught on rapalas using down riggers. There has been some nice fish up to 40lbs landed!!!

TUNA: Well the Tuna action has been very good this past week and we are excited to see them in the area and biting really good but we do have to run a bit for them as they are offshore from 12 to 21 miles as of lately. If you find the Porpoise you are likely to find the Tuna and to let you know OUR OWN Bob Marlin boat did land a 170lb Tuna this past week along with a lot of football size Tuna. So all in all its still good but they are out there and in the area!!!

INSHORE: The pangas have been doing just ok and really nothing like last week. inshore for Dorado and even the Wahoo fishing has been fair, but you need to fish tight to the beach. The productive areas are from the Solmar all the way to the Pump House. Some Roosters reported landed in the surf. The Roosters were caught using live bait.

Fish Report

Blue Marlin Fishing Continues Strong!!
Good Numbers of Stripers at Ranch Migrino!
1150 Area Producing Blues and Sailfish!
Dorado a Quarter Mile off Lighthouse!
Margarita Area on Pacific Side Hot!
Tuna ½ Mile to 2 Miles Off Beach!
Inshore Stripers and Small Dorado!
Rooster Fishing is Slowing Down!

BILLFISH: Pacific side is where the action has been with Striped Marlin, Sailfish and Blues. Blue Marlin fishing continues to be the hot species of the week. It seems the fish have moved up to the Pacific side where the water has been somewhat cooler, around San Jamie Banks and the Migrino area. Most of the Blues have been landed with lures and the Striped Marlin on live bait. We have had real good numbers of Sailfish this past week and this continued now for the last 3 weeks, with good Sailfish numbers being caught and released. So if you're into Blue Marlin you had better get to Cabo, as this year has been really good and we think it will continue through October.

DORADO: Fishing for Dorado has been pretty decent with lots of action a couple miles off the beach with some smaller ones being caught in the 15lb to 20 lb range and then outside there has been some pretty decent action going on. It mite be a good idea to practice throwing back the smaller Dorado and respecting the limits. The Japs with their nets are raping the world of fish, so really every little bit we do to conserve cant hurt.

SWORDFISH: Hasn't heard of any caught this week.

WAHOO: Yes a few landed over this past week at Gray Rock on jet heads so if your into Wahoo try that area over the next few days.

TUNA: Well, Lots of football size Tuna being caught close to shore about ½ to 2 miles off Rancho Migrino to Margarita area. Most are in the 10lb to 30 pound range and are being taken on king busters and cedar plugs. There is that chance also to land a big Tuna in the 100lb to 200lb range, since we are in Cabo and you never know what we will run into.

INSHORE: Rooster Fish are slowing and the big news inshore is Dorado and Striped Marlin over the last week. Quite a few Tuna in the 10lb to 30lb range also have been caught. There has been Sailfish reported caught inshore also on Pangas so it mite be worth grabbing a Panga and going out for a 5 hour excursion to see what happens inshore.


WEATHER: Big problem all week except for today it has finally died down. WIND, WIND, WIND really the major story all of this past week as it has pretty much wiped out our fishing week last week and now its calm. Who knows? It was so windy at some points that it actually became dangerous to be out there fishing for some of the smaller boats.
WATER: Still quite the contrast of water temperatures from Pacific side to the East Cape area. I am thinking maybe the wind blew some cooler water towards San Jose over the last week cause we have been getting a good wind from the north all week. There is a huge difference in the water temperatures on the East Cape compared to closer to Cabo on the Pacific side where there is like a 10 degree difference in water. East Cape some areas are 84 degrees and here close to Cabo on the Pacific it is 74 degrees and colder in some spots, so quite the contrast and this will affect the fishing in both areas as we will be catching something completely different from them boys on the East Cape.

BILLFISH: Yup, the first Sailfish of the season caught last week and I remember last year we had some good action on the Saifish for a couple months. Well the Marlin fishing has definitely been affected by the wind this past week. Big number of Marlin being landed but a few from the 95 spot to Grey Rock, with most being landed on live bait and lures. Really nothing like the week before when we even caught some Blue and Black Marlin. Luckily the wind has died down and it's hot, hot. pretty calm and overcast today, Sunday the 5th of June.
DORADO: Finally a few are starting to show up as we landed some really nice ones this past week. We spotted some floating trach and it was making some shade for some really nice Doraods and we landed 4 from 25lbs to 35lbs, but in general it has been slow as they just haven't shown up this year yet and I am starting to wonder if the commercial fishing boats are raping the Dorado. I said this last week, but it's worth leaving in the report this week also: "If the USA would stop buying illegal fish caught in Mexico that would help a lot as it is not legal to net Dorado in Mexico because it is a sportfishing and not listed as a commercial species. It seems as long as there are buyers then this will continue to happen and it seems the authorities just look the other way since they are getting their cut". I wanted to repeat this as I think this is one of the problems of the fish not showing in numbers that we are used to here in Cabo
SWORDFISH: Havent heard of any caught this week.
WAHOO: A good week for Wahoo using planer boards and rapalas from Grey Rock to Santa Maria beach. Some nice fish reported, also try using some live bait for the Wahoo,s.
TUNA: They are pretty much scattered out and you have to keep a keen eye out for them. Tuna fishing has slowed big time with most being caught tight to the beach and they are in the Football size range using king busters and cedar plugs. If you try from the Light House all the way to San Jose you might run into some decent Tuna bites, but I don't think you will get any real big fish mostly all about the same size.
INSHORE: Good over last couple days since wind died down with good Sierra action from Grey Rock to Light House. Some Snappers close to the beach in the rocks off of Pedregal Beach. It has been slow as not to many Pangas going out due to windy conditions, but they have seen some action with Roosters from Gray Rock to Chileno Bay. If you slow trolled live bait you will see action on Roosters s one of our boats caught 8 Rooster Fish last week using these techniques. The Jack Crevall has been biting pretty good, really not that great to eat but fun to catch.

Cabo San Lucas Sportfishing.

MARLIN: We are so pleased that fishing has stayed on track and continues to improve after a season of slow start during the last few months. Even with a big moon the fish were not deterred and gave a good showing all week. To give you an idea of how great it's been let's Our 31ft Go Deep and 37 ft  Go deeper last week on 5 Charters came back with a combinned total of 72 Marlin releases, Great Job to thoses crews avarage 7 Marlin releases per day per vessel. Striped marlins, ranging in size from 100 to 160 LBS.
Most all vessels where able to locate a good Marlin bite all week.28ft Blue Tail  with four marlin released, also at the 11.50 spot for the McLaurin and Smith families from Livingston, Texas. Not to be left out were  Other boats released between one and three marlin with those not catching generally people that got seasick and who wanted to come back early. Live bait was absolutely the way to go and the best location was the 11.50 spot on the Cortez side. Marlin was the top catch this week, with 85 percent of our boats catching, giving us a total of 159 fish of which 117 were released – several fish tagged.
OTHER SPECIES: We continue to see a variety of sharks being caught in the same area as the marlin all of them are being released. Andrea a 28 ft El pargo released two thresher sharks up to 100 LBS, a 70 LB pilot shark and also released a striped marlin for Glen McLaughlin and Sara Madsen. The varieties of shark caught this week were pilot, hammerhead, thresher, mako and lemon and twenty percent of our charters hooked them. Dorado catches were a little better this week at thirteen percent and this should increase as we approach summer. 31ft Rosa Del Mar  Marlin and caught five small dorado, two small tuna and released a pilot shark and a striped marlin. Tuna catches were slow with just a few fish caught around the 10 LB mark. Inshore the fishing has slowed down somewhat with the pangas being hit or miss, nevertheless twenty percent of the boats caught a trigger fish, skipjacks, grouper, sierra, jack crevalle and small roosters. Mid week there was a flurry of wahoo activity for boats fishing a bit closer to Cabo with some fish up to 60 LBS. George from Cleveland out on the Super Panga caught a 40 LB wahoo, two tuna and thee jack crevalles.
LOCATION: 11.50 for marlin and shark, Cabeza de Ballena and Lighthouse for smaller game. Difficult to fish the Pacific as the wind blew hard all week.
WEATHER CONDITIONS: Clear sunny skies, windy on Pacific, seas calm to moderate.
BEST LURES: Live caballito, rapalas & cuchis.

WEATHER: Been very nice all week and we can really feel the heat starting to set in over the last week and I think its going to be a hot summer in Cabo. So, whats new. We are not looking for any storm activity right now but as we get into summer we will get some tropical activity. Although, I think we had enough with Hurricane ODILE year before last. That was enough to last a lifetime, but for now we are having great weather.

WATER: Pretty much the same as last week as far as the water temps go.The water right outside Cabo Harbor is right around 72 to 74 degrees and actually pretty nice. Pacific side up and around the Finger Baja where it was dipping down to 69 degrees is still cold up there and it is like night and day compared to the Pacific side and the Cortez side.
This link which will show you water temperatures for the southern half of Baja.

BILLFISH: Marlin fishing has picked up some what with good days and bad days. Lots of fish stacked up at the 1150 area and most of them are Marlin. Pitching live bait at them along with lures and slow trolled ballyhoo has been working very well. We did have one boat brave the pacific side and there was 3 boys aboard who managed to to land 3 Marlin and 3 sharks, so at least 2 out of the 3 boys did score a Marlin which is really cool as we love to see the kids land some nice fish. Crews have also landed 6 Wahoo, 8 Tuna and 2 really nice Dorado. None of the other boats wanted to brave the pacific side that day so the boys made a good choice to over there. CONGRATULATIONS GUYS!!

SHARK FISHING: We have been catching lots of sharks this past week, Bull Sharks and Hammerheads are lots of fun to catch, but it isn't the season for them so we are catching them are releasing them. Lots of fun be we have to release.

DORADO: Dorado has taken a turn from last week with just a few caught this past week. Some of the Dorado taken this week were very nice fish and the Light House was a good area for Dorado using lures and slow trolled bait. Not a lot, but it is getting better and we are going into Dorado season now.

WAHOO: There are Wahoo still being caught at Grey Rock on jet heads, rapalas and dead cabilltos being slow trolled. They were catching the same amount of Wahoo as last week, but they are still catching this past week. Looks like a lot of guys have been spear fishing in the area . boats report 33 Wahoo working that area over the past weeks. there is Wahoo in the area.

TUNA: They have been showing up at the doughnut, but not in big numbers, although there were a few taken on cedar plugs and striker kings with all being blind strikes as there were no porpoise in the area. There was one report of a 175lb Tuna taken yesterday.

INSHORE: Small Tuna and even some Sierras lately. Action inshore has just been ok this past week. There was some Dorado and Rooster Fish. The Roosters are averaging 12lb to 20lb and being landed from the Solmar to the Light House. Trolling live bait has been what there hitting so remember to buy a lot of live bait if your fishing Roosters.

WEATHER: It has been really nice about every day. The wind has picked up pretty good over the last 3 days, though with some pretty good gusts during the day time and even at night. As I sit and write this report I can hear the wind blowing now. If you were in a small boat over the last 2 or 3 days you will have experienced a pretty rough ride due to windy conditions. The actual temperatures are really great with highs in the ladder 80, is too low 90, so in the day time and cooling off pretty good at night down into the mid 60,s.

WATER: With the windy conditions the water has been pretty wild with some rough seas on the pacific side and of course on the Sea of Cortez its been calmer, but due to the windy conditions its rough out there. Still quite the contrast in water temperatures from the Pacific to the Sea of Cortez. All warm water on the Cortez side and cold water on the Pacific side. It is 69 degrees up above the Finger Bank on the Pacific side and on the Cortez side it is pushing 72 degrees.

BILLFISH: The Marlin fishing has been pretty steady and it seems the Marlin have moved down towards San Jose closer to the Sea of Cortez.

What we are seeing is many of the Marlin are full of squid as there is an abundance in the water. So we have been just pitching live bait at them till we find the right one to take the bait. All boats have been fishing about everyday and we have been pretty consistent this past week and we landed about 18 total and had one day where we did catch 7.

DORADO: Wish I could give some good information the Dorado fishing but there hasn't been any good news as of lately, so I am just telling you like it is and that is pretty bad right now, but you never know when that can turn around and we will get back into the Dorado action.

WAHOO: Pretty good week for the Wahoo from the Light House to Migrino on jet heads and rapalas.

TUNA: Some action on Tuna but its basically a hit and miss as we really don't know when we will run into a school, but they are around somewhat as there has been reports of a lot of football size fish and some up to 30 to 40lbs.

INSHORE: Grouper fishing action in close to shore has been pretty good over the last week, if you use cut bait at about 250ft on the rock piles, you will have a good chance of landing something. You have to have some pretty good electronics to have any decent luck but there is some good action to be had. In the same area you will probably hook into some Snappers and Sheepheads also. They are being caught from the Solmar to the Light House and also in the same area as the Grouper are the Sierra and it's pretty wide open for them if you're using hootchies.

Baja Sierra Ceviche Recipe!

The first time I made ceviche, I was amazed. I could actually see the lemon and lime juice turning the color of the fish from translucent pink to opaque white. The acid from the limes and lemons change the structure of the proteins in the fish, essentially "cooking" the fish without using heat. I love ceviche rolled up in a freshly cooked, still warm corn tortilla with lettuce and salsa.
