SPRING FISHING IN CABO

SPRING FISHING IN CABO

Our great Cabo spring weather is here!! It's been in the high 60's in the mornings and the chilly March wind is gone. Same with the day time temps the mid 80's feel a lot warmer. Still getting the winds but coming from different directions so they are warmer. While the air temps seem sot be warming up, the water temps are cooling off.

Marlin fishing has remained slow. Still a few bites close to shore, but not hearing of anything offshore. Even the bottom fishing for marlin up the Pacific side isn't working yet. Where are they? Just not here in the numbers we have seen in the past. March should be great for striped marlin but they are will be here soon.

Once again, there is a few tuna, but not many. Reports of porpoise schools in close but the boats working the schools are reporting only the small Bonita. However a few Dorado have been caught recently.  Not in large numbers, but the ones caught were all in the 15 to 20 lb. range.  Wahoo has been the best catch lately, while the larger 6-10 lb. fish remain scarce. Still lots of the smaller ones. But maybe you should throw those 2-4 lb. fish back, let them grow up. Got leave some breeders for next year!!!

Inshore fishing has been the way to go. Snapper bite is alright. We haven't seen the numbers of red snapper hitting the docks like in years past. They are there; people are just spending more time targeting the Sierra.  Don't laugh, but some decent triggerfish are coming into the dock. (they really are good eating)  Some small mako shark being released. Maybe with this cooler high 60 degree water moving in, the yellowtail bite will pick up again.

Spring has sprung in Cabo and while the fishing may not be so hot, any day on the water is better than a day at work. So come on down, the weather is perfect this time of year.
