Tropical conditions, high temperatures
averaging 90 degrees, south wind
early in the week, settling down over
the weekend. There was the
development of Tropical Storm Dalila,
this system moved far to the west, no
impact with land, though there was
local tropical disturbances flaring up,
early in the week over the mountainous
region north of San Jose del Cabo
and in La Paz, where they had major
thunderstorms, it is now the time when
this tropical actives increases.



There were moderate ocean swells and
southern winds the first half of the
week, this contributed to stirring up
water conditions once again, greener
currents along the shoreline, clean
blue water found further offshore.
Ocean temperature is now in the 78 to
85 degree range, off of San Jose and
towards the north offshore, is where
the water is now warmest.



Conditions are now cleaning up closer
to shore, crazy how all through the
month of July conditions were changing
back and forth. It is now the season
when things can change rapidly, both
with the fishing action and the
weather.



Bait vendors offered a mix of
caballito, mullet, ballyhoo and slabs
of
squid. More open water trolling done
offshore, with blue marlin strikes
being reported daily, particularly
around the 1150 spot, also some striped
marlin and nicer sized dorado, to over
40 lb. Chances of finding porpoise
with associated yellowfin tuna, though
nothing consistent for tuna now,
some local commercial pangeros found
some yellowfin to 60 lb. north of
Vinorama.



Closer to shore from Cardon to Vinorama
there were good numbers of smaller
school sized dorado, under 10 lb., some
very small, remember catch and
release on these small dorado, limits
are two per license. As clean water
moves closer to shore we expect some of
the larger bulls to move in, now
most of the larger dorado reported are
out on the marlin grounds.



We had a surprise to see some activity
by wahoo, handful of these
speedsters were landed while trolling
offshore waters, has been a while
since we seen these fish, so that is a
great sign. More looking for various
surface action now, not much besides
triggerfish and an occasional snapper
or amberjack off the bottom now. Along
the shore there were still
roosterfish and jack crevalle, though
that action became less consistent
and actually more anglers are opting to
target the dorado which has been
the main bite for local charters.



*T*he combined sportfishing fleet
launching out of the panga area from
Puerto Los Cabos Marina sent out an
estimated 66 charters for the week and
anglers reported an approximate fish
count of: 7 striped marlin, 4 blue
marlin, 5 wahoo, 235 dorado, 24
yellowfin tuna, 9 leopard grouper, 32
Mexican bonito, 14 red snapper, 7
yellow snapper, 8 amberjack, 9
roosterfish, 15 jack crevalle and 85
triggerfish.



Good Fishing, Eric

With summer progressing, we saw light
numbers of anglers arriving this past
week, though weather conditions are
stable with no tropical storms forming
at this time. Ocean swells are moderate
and winds were not much of a
factor, swirling from the south mainly
later in the day. Mostly sunny
skies, high temperatures in the mid-
80s, but with combined heat index it is
feeling more like 95 degrees. Ocean
conditions turned over yet again to
start the week following strong south
wind, this laid down the next day and
since the conditions have rebounded,
back up to 80 degrees and also blue
within a couple miles of shore.

Most of the fishing action for local
fleets was concentrated from the Iman
Bank and north to Vinorama, this is
where the water was cleaner. Using
caballito, moonfish, ballyhoo and
strips of squid anglers working the
bottom structure for a few red snapper,
bonito, cabrilla and amberjack,
though this action was spotty.
Highlight off the bottom were a handful
of
nice amberjack up to 50 lb.

Some yellowfin tuna were found near
Vinorama, trolling hoochie type lures,
drift fishing with strips of squid and
also some on yo-yo jigs, these tuna
were in the 10 to 20 lb. range, mid-
week was best, bite was on and off,
just like the ocean conditions.

We saw increased numbers of dorado
showing up, though the majority of
these
were smaller sized fish, but again a
couple of much larger bulls weighing
over 50 lb. were reported from a
cruiser fishing near Cabrillo Seamount,
scattered throughout the region,
striking on a variety of trolled
feathers
and rigging baits.

Along the shoreline anglers still had
chances at roosterfish, though
numbers were less now than in previous
weeks, more jack crevalle than
anything else.

Best chances at billfish seemed to be
straight offshore of San Jose del
Cabo and towards the 1150 spot, though
we did not have many anglers that
did try this option, we heard of
reports of some blue marlin strikes.

The combined sportfishing fleet
launching out of the panga area from
Puerto Los Cabos Marina sent out an
estimated 57 charters for the week and
anglers reported an approximate fish
count of: 2 striped marlin, 2 blue
marlin, 29 dorado, 27 yellowfin tuna, 1
broomtail grouper, 1 pompano, 1
porgy, 8 leopard grouper, 26 Mexican
bonito, 16 red snapper, 4 yellow
snapper, 11 amberjack, 15 roosterfish,
32 jack crevalle and 24 triggerfish.

San Jose del Cabo

July 14, 2019



Now in the midst of the summer season
we are progressively feeling warmer
conditions and increased humidity. High
temperatures around 90 degrees,
quite a few tropical clouds earlier in
the week, burning off with the heat
of the day. Ocean water temperatures
are now ranging from 76 to 86 degrees,
warmest area offshore and towards Los
Frailes. Swift currents sweeping in
and causing off colored green
conditions sporadically in isolated
areas,
changing daily, but no cold water now,
80 degrees all the way to the Golden
Gate Banks on the Pacific. Steady
southern swells push in this time of
year, surfers from all over the world
arrive, in recent days 5 to 6 foot
swells were common. Winds were
variable, swirling from north, east and
south, creating rolling seas,
especially later in the day.



There have already been several named
tropical storm systems follow paths
out west, presently there is a low
pressure system moving off to the west,
located several hundred miles from
southern Baja, is not forecast to make
any impact on land, just a bit more
tropical feeling.



Live bait available has been the same
now for the past month, caballito,
moonfish, mullet, ballyhoo and slabs of
squid. On the offshore grounds
there are increased schools of small
skipjack and bolito moving in and
these always can make good bait option
for larger gamefish species.



The warmer water has also brought in
larger marlin, in recent days we have
heard of daily reports of blue marlin
being hooked into, at least one of
about 240 lb. was landed and others to
over 400 lb. were battled and broken
off. Still some striped marlin in the
area, but most of them are now closer
to Southern California searching for
cooler water and their preferred
mackerel food source.



Early in the week anglers found a small
grade of football sized yellowfin
tuna spread out in open water around
the San Luis Bank, trolling small
hoochies produced scattered results,
time of year we see these small tuna
show. Only a few yellowfin tuna to 50
lb. were reported this week, so far
nothing going on larger cows being
seen, the next several weeks is when
things change rapidly and we would
expect to see schools of larger
yellowfin tuna move on to local
grounds. No wahoo reported, only a
handful
of dorado reported, the majority small
sized and being released.



Off the bottom there was on and off
action for red snapper, amberjack,
leopard grouper and bonito. Anglers
used yo-yo type jigs, as well as
various baits. This is the month when
we normally see the largest amberjack
of the season, this week we weighed in
a 83 lb. amberjack for angler Eric
Chen, from Las Vegas, he fished with
skipper Chuy on the super panga
Fortuna. We have not seen the run of
dogtooth snapper develop yet, this is
peak time for them.



Along the shore there is scattered
action for jack crevalle and
roosterfish
to over 40 lb., though we have not
really seen a significant big run of
these fish this year.



*T*he combined sportfishing fleet
launching out of the panga area from
Puerto Los Cabos Marina sent out an
estimated 69 charters for the week and
anglers reported an approximate fish
count of: 7 striped marlin, 3 blue
marlin, 8 dorado, 24 yellowfin tuna, 3
broomtail grouper, 14 leopard
grouper, 95 Mexican bonito, 52 red
snapper, 6 yellow snapper, 19
amberjack,
30 roosterfish, 38 jack crevalle and 45
triggerfish.



Good Fishing, Eric

July 7, 2019



This week the season’s first major
hurricane developed and passed off to
the west of the Baja Peninsulas, this
system, Hurricane Barbara reached
close to category five strength,
luckily for everyone this storm
followed a
path far enough offshore to not cause
any impact with land. We did feel an
increase in humidity and ocean swells
increased noticeably. Another
significant weather factor was the
strong south winds that picked up early
in week, once again pushing in cooler
greenish currents, dropping water
temperatures into the 68 degree range.
Now the winds have resided, but the
damage has been done and we now have to
patiently wait for conditions to
rebound, which presently is a day to
day process, now the water is starting
to look a bit cleaner and is up to the
72/73 degree range.



Anglers were using caballito, moonfish
mainly for bait, finding very tough
fishing conditions all around. Surface
action was extremely slim after
Monday. Anglers that did work hard off
of the bottom structure accounted
for a mix of red snapper, Mexican
bonito, cabrilla, triggerfish and
amberjack, though this action was not
consistent and changed daily. A
handful of quality fish were taken, we
saw amberjack and roosterfish to
over 40 lb., also one nice grouper of
about 70 lb., though most charters
averaged just a handful of fish in
combination. Anglers were using various
baits, as well as yo-yo jigs for this
action off of the rocky high spots.



The action for tuna, dorado and
billfish came to standstill due to the
green cold water, though the week
started off with a few marlin being
found, one blue marlin of an estimated
250 lb. was released, and a
scattering of striped marlin were also
accounted for. We do expect for
conditions to rebound quickly and then
we anticipate much improved action.



Along the shoreline it was the
roosterfish and jack crevalle that were
dominated the action, though this bite
also became very difficult in the
turned over conditions.



*T*he combined sportfishing fleet
launching out of the panga area from
Puerto Los Cabos Marina sent out an
estimated 53 charters for the week and
anglers reported an approximate fish
count of: 3 striped marlin, 1 blue
marlin, 1 dorado, 2 yellowfin tuna, 2
broomtail grouper, 8 leopard grouper,
1 gulf grouper, 125 Mexican bonito, 32
red snapper, 5 yellow snapper, 15
amberjack, 26 roosterfish, 22 jack
crevalle and 45 triggerfish.
