Overall Catch Success Rate All Species Combined 95%
Numbers at a glance: Billfish 89%, Other 43%
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.
LOCATION: 11.50 spot, Chileno, Punta Gorda.
WEATHER CONDITIONS: Hot, clear sunny skies, calm to moderate seas.

May 29 to June 4, 2015
WEATHER: We had really great we really can’t complain. We did have a few showers yesterday and some rain accumulation which we always need. Other than that it has been really nice with sunny day’s highs hitting close to 100 degrees s and lows, I expect are dropping into the mid 60,s. The breeze off the Pacifc has been cooling things off pretty good.
WATER: Pretty much the same as last week as far as the water temps go.The water right outside Cabo Harbor is right around 72 to 74 degrees and actually pretty nice. Pacific side up and around the Finger Baja where it was dipping down to 69 degrees is still cold up there and it is like night and day compared to the Pacific side and the Cortez side.

BILLFISH: The Marlin fishing has turned around big time and we are even seeing some Blue Marlin being caught this past week. One of the Blues was 300lbs and the other was 235lbs not to be for this time of year. The 1150 spot and in the area of the 95 had been the hot Marlin areas and live bait and trolling has been enticing them. Actually, most boats have been reporting at least 2 – 5 hook ups per charter.
DORADO: It has been pretty darn good this week with lots of smaller Dorado being landed in some pretty large schools. They have been spotted all over the place over the last week. Everything is really out of wack this year as we shouldn’t be seeing to many Dorado right now, but we should be seeing more winter fish like Yellowtail and they haven’t really even showed up all year. But some occasional bites here and there.
WAHOO: There was a few caught over the week and one really nice one tipping the scales at 110lbs about 2 miles from Cabo Bay up towards Grey Rock. The fish were hitting rapalas, jet heads and live bait.
TUNA: Well, here again we are seeing some decent action this past week and that’s great since we haven’t seen too much lately. We caught like 5 smaller Tuna but there was a 250lb Tuna caught in the same area. We haven’t seen any Tuna in weeks, so anything right now is good for us.
INSHORE: Most Rooster fish are being caught near the Light House on live bait .A few Groupers and Sheephead in and around the Pedregal Rocks. There are Skip Jacks, Yellow Tail and Sierra on the Pacific side that are there and can be caught close to shore. I mean there is all kinds of fish in this area to catch and its not like we are getting skunked but it has been down compared to normal. All in All the fishing Great with our vessels this past week and we aren’t knocking them dead.
Striped Marlin: Full of Squid!!
Finally Decent Yellowtail Fishing!
Winds Calm Finally!!
Sierra Fishing So So!!!
May 11, 2015:
We still have a few vessels available for tournaments if you are interested please contact us asap. for tournament fishing.
WEATHER: Well, finally the wind has calmed and we are having great weather again. The wind beat us up most of last week and now as I am writing this report its pretty darn calm and sunny. This week has been all sunny days with highs in the mid 80,s to low 90,s and lows in the mid 60,s too low 60,s. The windy conditions last week were really affecting our fishing conditions as we were getting really blown away in the afternoons coming in from fishing. Quite the boat rides.
WATER: Quite the contrast in water temperatures. Cold water conditions have brought in the Yellowtail finally and the line between cold water and warm water is right around Palmilla if you check the Tempbreak map you will see the line. Water went down to 71 right outside the Cabo Bay and then got colder on the Pacific side up and around the Finger Baja where it was dipping down to 69 degrees.
BILLFISH: Marlin fishing has slowed somewhat and the wind has seemed to stop finally. The Marlin is everywhere it seems, from the 1150 to the San Jamie,but they all seem to be full of squid and aren’t biting too well. The Marlin that isn’t full of squid have been hitting live bait, ballyhoo and lures and the best area to land a fish is off the Light House about 2 miles.
DORADO: The fishing for Dorado has really slowed and it looks as if they have moved on for this week. It has been so weird this year for Dorado as they should have been gone a long time ago; but they have been hanging out and it has been really hit and miss for them all year, but at least they have stayed in the area and not left us.
WAHOO: I have not heard of any this past week. Not too much Wahoo action right now.
TUNA: We should start to see some Tuna start to show soon. There hasn’t been any around the last 5 weeks, but really you never know. If the water temperatures stay like this I wouldn’t be surprised to start seeing them roll into the area.
INSHORE: So the inshore action has mainly been Skip Jack, Sierras and Yellowtail and there has been not really too hot of action on all three species. The fact we are catching good numbers of Skip Jack is a good indicator that maybe some Tuna will start to show up soon. However you look at it if you go out in a Panga or small boat and do some inshore fishing you will most likely do pretty good as there is an abundance of fish here in the Los Cabos area So you should have a blast fishing with Cabo San Lucas Sport fishing charters.
WEATHER: It hasn’t changed much in the last 2 weeks. The weather has been really good over the last week. It has been actually a little warmer than normal for this time of year. There really hasn’t been a winter here to speak of with temperatures above average. I would say today it was pushing 85 to 90 degrees in the day time and lows in to the ladder 50,s to mid 60,s
WATER: In the beginning of the week the water temperature was hovering from 69 to 70 degrees and then later in the week it rose all the way up to 75 to 76 degrees making for a Dorado bite this past week. The Dorado bite was really slow last week due to cold water temperatures.
TUNA: The Tuna bite has just been ok, nothing really special, we did find them a couple days last way offshore about 18 to 28 miles out. Most of the fish being caught are 15lbs to 30lbs and are caught using cedar plugs and striker kings. It isn’t really good for Tuna right now unless you run way offshore and get lucky to run into a school of fish.
BILLFISH: Well the Striped Marlin fishing has really stayed steady over the last 5 weeks and I am really just not say that as I have expected it to slow at least one week but it really has been good. Most of the action is up around the Golden Gate and we are drifting live bait at about 160ft. We have been making bait up there at the Golden Gate with lots of sardines on lucky joes and were using them also on Ballyhoo. Very few Marlin being taken on lures or pitching bait as most seem to be deeper. The 1150 and the 95 spots have also had some luck this week on Striped Marlin using some of the same techniques.
DORADO: We did get a some warmer water roll into the area making for a better week for Dorado with a few boats reporting numbers of Dorado. There wasn’t hardly any caught last week so this is welcome news to us and we hope for a more productive week coming.
Weather has been very consistent blues Skies and an average of 80 to 90 degree range with a wonderful pacific wind coming in at 10 to 15knotts.
