Beschreibung des Ausflugs

We knew it was going to be a great inshore day. The water temps were in the mid 80s, and conditions were perfect. Bait was in thick and breezing everywhere as we put the light gear out. The small YFTs had been biting the last few days so we put the hoochies and a couple of feathers out just behind the 2nd wake, a coople of small lures on the riggers and a sewed bait ballyhoo long off the top. We started shallow in about 70 feet of water and worked our way up towards the lighthouse. It didnt take long and the 1st one was on! The reel was screamin as our angler grabbed the rod and got control of the fish. Out came jumping a nice dorado and the fight was on! After 5 minutes we had it to gaff and after quite a few swipes, top deckie Martin finally boated the fish! We had a great time teasing the usually sure gaffer Martin! Well that was just the start as we proceeded to have hookups nonstop! We had small tuna biting the hoochies, dorado all over everything, and even a wahoo that stole my tigrillo lure!! It was'nt a wide open bite, but with every tack we seemed to boat a fish. A steady pick as we say. What was peculiar with the dorado was that they would not bite the pitched live bait. They were all single bites and we nevered raised a school. This went on for a couple of hours and after getting everyone a few fish, the bite backed off. This seems to be the pattern now, a few hours in the early morning and then it slows down. Boat pressure adds to this problem as quite a few boats are pounding the area. So we switched over to the 50 lb. setups and pounded it outside to try for a billfish but luck was not with us. This was a halfday trip and time is always a factor!! I highly recommend fulldays to everyone as the price difference is minimal and the results can be spectacular! But as we say in Cabo " No problema!" The bag was loaded and there was great filets for dinner. We called it a day and headed in. The boys grabbed their loaded cooler and headed off to grab a cold one! And it was only 11:00 am! Gotta love it! Another great fishing day in Cabo!!

TS Ivo blew past us without consequence, and they finally opened the port. We got a late start, blasted by the Cape Rocks, and busted some water out to the 95 spot. It was time to chase some billfish. Sea temps were in the mid 80s and conditions were perfect. We just barely had the lures, ballyhoos, and teasers in the water when we had a nice one come rippin in on the port teaser! We dropped a couple of live baits back but could'nt dupe it into biting! We made to the 95 and went into full tack mode working the high spot for a couple hours. I turned around looking into the pattern and saw a boil on the stinger long. I quickly grabbed the rod and free spooled the sewed bait ballyhoo back a few feet, set the drag, came up taught, and that fish was hung!! Bart was in the chair and did a great job working the fish. 17 minutes later we released a nice 90-100 lb. Striped Marlin! Nice one, Bart! After the normal congrats we got back to it, raising and hooking another nice one, unfortunately we dumped it after a few minutes. That's fishing! So we opted for a beach run to end the day. We switched over to the 30 set ups hoping for a wahoo or dorado but it was not to be. We headed in after a great day of action. The boys were stoked especially Bart who nailed his 1st marlin. We swung into the harbor, gave Pancho the sealion our extra bait and headed to the slip.And so ended another classic day in Cabo San Lucas! The last I saw of the boys, they were quickly heading off for an late afternoon t-time at the golf course. Gotta love Summer at the Cape! Hard to beat that!! Saludos!!

We were on a quick halfday with Jim and Meagan so it was a repeat of yesterdays fishing plan. We put the light taclke setups out as we turned north pass the Cape Rocks. Conditions were gourmet with calm seas, 85 degree water, and all around perfect conditions! We couldnt get a bite for the life of us! I was observing the other boats in the area and it seemed no one was gotting bit. We moved back in closer iinto 10 to 15 fathoms and it was an instant bite. The fish had followed the bait into the shallows! Jim was up and had a nice tuna onboard in minutes. We were no sooner back to trolling speed when the reels were screaming! Triple hookup! Meagan was all over it and bagged her tuna, and we dumped the other two. We noticed the other boats move into the area and after a few more short bites the fish were down and tight lipped. Boat pressure the last couple of days has really affected the bite. So we switched over to the 30 lb. setups and headed out for dorado and maybe a sailfish. We had a couple of ballyhoos whistlin in the riggers and some choice small lures ripoin in the wake. I saw the rigger bend back and heard the snap as a dorado ripped bigtime on the ballyhoo! Jim was up and had a great fight as the mahi was jumping all over. We got it to gaff and into the boat! After a quick sombrero pic we were back at the troll. We moved out to about 2 miles and continued to work the ledge off the northside of Cabo Falso. We raised a few morevfish but had the rubber hook syndrome. These fish were short biting and it was hard to get the hook set. Even our drop back live baits were being gummed by these golden grabbers! Tough going! We did finally get a couple of dorados and on the troll back in we nailed a blindstrike tuna. The bag was filled but overall it was a tough day to finally get our limits! The moon is growing so fishing should get tougher. Fortunately there is a huge quantity of fish here and we'll still have good fishing. The offshore billfishing is good so theres an option. The Blue Marlin bite well on a full moon!! September continues to be epic! Thanks to Jim and Meagen for a fantastic day out fishing. We cant wait to get back out there!!

The conditions remained excelent in the Pacific as we headed right outside the Cape Rocks about a half mile. We waisted no time in getting the light tackle gear out, and soon had the feathers and hoochies ripping water back in our wake. We headed towards Cabo Falso to where the bite was yesterday but never made it. The reels were screaming and the tuna were biting!! The boys were all over it and after numerous stops we had a load in the bag. Those boys sure can tug on fish! After a few stops we opted to try for dorados. We swung out to deeper water and switched over to small lures and deadbait ballyhoo and sure nuff the dorado were all over it! What a morning so far. As the boats started showing up, the bite slowed down. Seems to be a daily routine. We picked another nice one on the ballyhoo and opted tohead outside for a billfish. Again it wasnt to be. We did a lap out past the 95 spot and could'nt raise a marlin for the life of us. These halfdays kill me!! Luckily on the troll in we bagged another dorado and that was "muy bien" to finish up the halfday with a fatty! The boys had the filets and no sooner did we hit the docks, they were off to the restaurant to enjoy their catch! The fish platter that our local restaurants are putting out is gourmet! Cook it to your liking 3,5,or 7 different ways. A little sushi and sashimi appetizer will make it an unforgettable meal! We are lovin our September here in Cabo. Its just going to get better!!
