BILLFISH: A superb week in Cabo with superb catches throughout the week. The good old days are back! Striped marlin were thick and a few sailfish and blue marlin were in the mix too.  11.50 spot, which has been holding impressive numbers of marlin for the past two weeks. Also 180 lb. thresher shark, 120 lb. pilot shark both released and a 20 lb. dorado for the table. Go Deeper released 27 marlin for the week doing an excellent job on releases we many catches like this for all vessels this week. Anglers regularly caught and released between one and five marlin, as well as many sharks. One of our vessels was our only boat to catch a blue marlin, just under 200 lbs., and this one was caught five miles outside the 11.50.  Anglers caught a total of 154 striped marlin, 1 blue marlin and 2 sailfish; all but two fish were released.
OTHER SPECIES: A lot of sharks were caught this week and many of a good size in the 80 to 180 lb. class. The most abundant was the pilot shark, which we believe is a silky shark – we had twenty two of these this week, as well as three thresher sharks, one bull shark and one mako shark. Some boats caught as many as three sharks in a day. It should be noted that all sharks are being released at this time as there is a ban on taking these until July 31st. Just a smattering of dorado were caught.
