Pisces Fishing Reports
Another great week of fishing in Cabo! Quite a few highlights this time around, as we also had one of our Pisces boats, Pisces 72’ Tag Team, participate in the 1st Annual Robert Ross Tournament in Loreto, bringing back 1st place with 22 billfish released! In Cabo, we saw decent numbers of striped marlin around too, with the top boat being Pisces 31’ Tracy Ann with 5 Striped marlin released in one day. Tuna and dorado were slow, with only a few caught of each, but the inshore fishing was excelente. Again, Roosterfish, Jack Crevalle and Red Snapper, along with some Yellowtail, Grouper and Triggerfish, were the main catches.
This week the weather has remained pretty stable, with only one or two days of strong winds, but this didn't seem to affect fishing much. The inshore action picked up quite a bit, with roosterfish, sierra and jack crevalle being the main targets. Top boats caught and released up to 13 roosterfish in one day. Marlin catch and release percentages also remained constant, although many boats did spot many marlin but struggled to get them to bite. With that said, the top boat, Pisces 31’ Tracy Ann, released 5 stripeys. And, seems like we’ve been closing out the week with great wahoo catches. Again, a nice wahoo caught on Pisces 31’ La Brisa, estimated at 60 lbs.
We were very happy this week to see that the weather and the fishing have improved! We are up over thirty percentage points in our overall catch success rate this time around, with 63 out of 66 boats catching fish! Winds have died down for the most part (only a few where they picked up intermittently) and water temperatures South of Cabo have risen a few degrees; with this the marlin have shown up. In total this week, our fleet caught and released 60 Striped Marlin with an average of about 1-3 per boat, and some boats releasing up to 5 marlin each. Tuna numbers did fall slightly, but mostly because anglers chose to target marlin over them; but those who did go for the yellowfin found them in good numbers and sometimes found luck with a marlin release too. The largest tuna this week was caught on Pisces 38’ C Rod, weighing approx. 120 lbs with owners aboard. Other catches have included a few dorado, jack crevalle, roosterfish, ladyfish, skipjack, bonita and even one or two makos.
