Update from Cabo area

Cabo San Lucas Fishing Report

June 27, 2005

THE CABO SAN LUCAS FISHING REPORT – THE GAVIOTA FLEET & MORE

The surface water temperature conditions are improving, almost daily, and the cold water plume that has jutted through the area has nearly dissipated, allowing for a better billfish bite.  While the inshore water is a bit cooler than usual for this time of year, the offshore water is rapidly moving upward and stabilizing.  Just a few more degrees will bring it to near perfect temp conditions.  The “Fish Cabo”, reporting for 2 fishing days reflected 2 stripers released, 1 dorado and 12 yellowfin tuna and the “Fish Cabo I”, reporting for 6 fishing days, reflected 4 stripers released, 3 roosterfish and 1 dorado.  The Gaviota Sportfishing Fleet, reporting for 46 fishing days reflected a near 1 billfish per boat fished day, (43 stripers & 39 released) 1 wahoo, 2 dorado and 108 yellowfin tuna.

Cabo Climate:  Still blowing from the Northwest, but not with the briskness of the past several weeks.  Mostly sunny & warm, nights down to 69 and daytime highs at 92-95.

Sea Conditions:  Much improved and less wind, too.  Temps ranging from 70 inshore to 75 offshore, with the warmer water on the Sea of Cortez side.

Best Fishing Area:  The billfish and tuna were mostly south of Cabo Falso and around  the “95”, 10-15 miles offshore

Best Lure/Bait:  Live bait was very important for the billfish, while the tuna were fairly eager to bite on the feathers

Live Bait Supply:  Not reported

THE MAZATLAN FISH REPORT – THE ARIES SPORTFISHING FLEET

Good fishing for sailfish, with the boats continuing to catch a 1.5 billfish per boat day average.  Some of the hotter boats were posting up to 4 sailfish per day and of course, there were also a few “skunks”, too.  But overall, it was another good fishing week, both inshore and offshore.  Aries Fleet reported for 28 fishing day that reflected 40 sailfish with 28 releases, 1 striper, 2 dorado, 24 yellowfin tuna and 1 mako shark and the inshore super pangas had easy limit fishing on red snapper & yellowtail, along with 18 barracuda, 8 corvina, & 6 palometas, for 4 fishing days.
