Cabo San Lucas Fishing Report, March 7th

Holy Mackerel

Cabo San Lucas Fishing Report, March 7th
"Well I'll be damned....", just when I had about given up, we have bait again. I had almost forgot what a live Mackerel looked like. True the bulk of them are arriving by boat from Mag Bay, but the local striped marlin don't mind and are readily taking baits and keeping lines tight!! Fishing and catching at the same time, mild seas and warm weather. You could ask for little more. Tuna and Dorado are as available as ever. Typical action is a handfull of billfish releases and a cooler full of filets between, Yellowfin, Yellowtail, Dorado, and Wahoo. You still need to plan on long days and deal with solid charter services as the warm water is still 30 miles out and sometimes farther. Make your deal up front with your provider and know where you plan to fish before you leave the dock. The slow bite, and even slower economy has caused a few providers to drop their prices too low and resort to boat rides in green water. Trust the Satellite SST reports and follow the temp breaks and warm open water pockets as the Tuna are thick under the Porpoise. Now for a fish story, the one that got away. A half dozen lucky anglers have landed surface feeding Broadbill Swordfish, but one unlucky angler was spooled in a matter of minutes by a true "Purple Gladiator" was 450lbs if it was 20lbs. This monster sword took the bait and headed straight for the bottom of the ocean continued to speed up until "plink" end of the spool and there she goes. Saw her with my own eyes, one massive fish.
