Pisces Fishing Reports
This week saw some really awesome catches, and more than one grand slam (when three different species of billfish are caught in one day). The Pisces Rebecca started of the week strong with one striped marlin, one sailfish and one blue marlin all released.
This has really been a perfect showcase for Cabo summer weather. We saw really sunny, clear days and water temperatures starting to creep up a little. This has also meant that a few storms have formed further south, but don’t pose any sort of threat as they’re still quite south of us. Summer is definitely here, as we see our warm-water loving Blue Marlin catches consistent, while there have also been fairly good if sporadic catches of Striped Marlin throughout the week.
It’s been a great week here in Cabo. With the La Nina weather event in the Pacific Ocean, the cooler water temperatures have kept storm systems away this year, allowing us to enjoy the world-class fishing without interruptions. The season is definitely underway with blue marlin being caught almost every day (continuing to increase in frequency) while striped marlins are still in the area.
We’ve always known that July signals the start of blue marlin season and this year the fish showed up right on time giving our anglers some great catches. Blue marlin are nowhere near as plentiful as striped marlin so catching one of these larger billfish is a thrill and a workout.
The week started out well with some good marlin catches, such as those aboard Pisces Tracy Ann who had the Cameron and Chrobak party on board from Frisco, Texas. They headed out to a place the crews call “La Ballena” and managed to catch and released three striped marlin that ranged from 90 to 145 LBS on live bait.
