October 11-17, 2010

Weather: What a beautiful week we had! As is usual for this month of the year, the weather changed for us and the temperature dropped what felt was five degrees. With no storms on the horizon and just a light breeze we had great weather. Our daytime highs were in the high 80's to low 90's and our nighttime lows were in the mid 70's.

Water: On the Sea of Cortez side we had 86 degree water all along the coast out to a distance of about 5 miles, then it dropped a degree to 85 degrees. On the Pacific side it was mostly 82 degrees between the Jaime Bank, the Golden Gate Bank and the shore. Outside the banks the water dropped to 78 degrees. There was a bump, a bit of a swell, on the Pacific side while the Cortez side had almost pool table flat water with maybe 1-2 feet of swell, spaced far apart.

Bait: Caballito were the most common baits to be had from the boats this week and were the usual $3 each. The bait barge had some as well as some Sardinas. With the Los Cabos Billfish Tournament just happening and the little and big Bisbee tournaments the Sardinas have been the bait of choice in order to catch the smaller Tuna for bait.


Billfish: The first day of the Los Cabos Tournament was Wednesday and two big fish were brought to the weigh station. The largest was a Black Marlin that was reported to have been caught in the vicinity of the Gorda Banks and weighed in at 713 pounds. The second was a Blue Marlin that weighed in around 650 pounds. The last day of the tournament had three marlin over 400 pounds brought to the weigh station. The first day of the little Bisbee tournament was Saturday and a several nice fish were brought in as well. Next week I should have an update on the big Bisbee tournament as I will be captaining a boat for that one and will have the radio on full time! There were still plenty of Striped Marlin being found out there with most of the action happening on the Pacific side up around the Golden Gate. While the action is nor red hot, there has been a fairly steady bite on fish with most boats getting a shot or two a day, and a few getting multiple releases.

Yellowfin Tuna: Yellowfin Tuna action remained steady for boats fishing for the football fish up to 20 pounds in size, particularly around the Gray Rock area and the Santa Maria area during the tournament days. With that many boats chumming with Sardinas the fish are attracted to the area. There were a lot of Bonita and Skipjack as well. The area off of Palmilla has been producing some decent fish to 30 pounds for boats using Sardinas as bait. The largest Tuna of the Los Cabos tournament was 209 pounds and was caught by a friend of ours, who will not give any details about where or how, except to say the fight took two hours, and by the way, was caught on a Panga!

Dorado: The charter fleet did very well on Dorado this week but I was surprised that the largest Dorado caught during the Los Cabos Tournament by a tournament boat was only 31 pounds. I saw much larger fish being brought in by the charter fleet, some of the fish must have been at least 50 pounds. Perhaps it is the areas that were being fished because most of the big Dorado, and the large numbers came from the near-shore area on the Pacific side.

Wahoo: There were plenty of Wahoo reported this week and some boats were able to get multiple fish in the box, but you had to leave early for the first bite. Working the bottom contour around the 300 foot line with lures on wire leaders or rigged ballyhoo at first light seemed to work well for several boats that concentrated on these fish this week. The fish ranged between 30 and 50 pounds. In the offshore areas the fish seemed to average a bit larger but there was no concentrations to be found, the fish were sporadic.

Inshore: This week was a repeat of the last week for the inshore fishing. Roosterfish to 40 pounds, some nice sized Sierra and a scattering of Snapper were reported from the Pacific shoreline this week. The Roosterfish were caught on live bait and the schools have been fairly large. The Snapper have been tight into the rocks, but our small swells have made it easier than normal to get in there and toss a live bait. Most of the Pangas have been focusing slightly offshore fishing for the Dorado.

Notes: If you are getting your own fishing licenses, you must have pesos!!! The people that sell the licenses around the marina can no longer take dollars from anyone. Get pesos!

My music choice for this week was a new favorite of mine, Jack Johnson, and his CD “On and On” has been playing and re-playing in my truck and at home. It is a 2003 Universal records release. Until next week, tight lines!

Gordo Banks Pangas Report San Jose del Cabo
October 17, 2010

Just like clockwork the busy fall season has now started, with the first of the
annual series of high stake billfish tournaments now just completed, the
grandest event of all, the Black and Blue Bisbee is slated for next week. The
local San Jose del Cabo Team on the 35 ft. Cabo “Fishermen” has officially won
the overall jackpot for the largest Black Marlin of the event, the black was
subdued in only 32 minutes and weighed in at 713 pounds, the same team also
accounted for the only other black marlin on the final day of the tournament, it
weighed in at 466 pounds. One 629 pound blue marlin was also weighed in on the
first day by the team aboard the “Sneak Attack” and on the last day a 465 blue
marlin was weighed in by the team on the “Rum Runin”. The weather conditions are
what you would call just about perfect now, no late season storms on the
horizon, which did happen during this same time frame last year, mostly clear
skies, some scattered clouds, light breezes, minimal swells, water temperatures
averaging 84 to 86 degrees, evenings and early mornings are just beginning to
cool off to the point where light wind breakers might be needed, all around
excellent fishing conditions for anglers. The Southern Baja landscape is now
green after the rains from a couple of weeks ago, but surely will dry out
quickly if the region does not receive additional rainfall soon.

Fleets have been fishing in all different directions, but the majority of the
most consistent action was now being found from Santa Maria to Iman areas.
Sardinas are being netted off of the Palmilla Point area, small to medium sized,
they have bait the bait of choice for enticing the football sized yellowfin tuna
to bite. The action was a bit up and down, with lots of skipjack mixed in, most
charters are finding limits of the yellowfin for their anglers. A few dorado
mixed in, though most of them were juvenile sized, only an occasional bull
topping the 20 pound mark.

Wahoo were being caught in limited numbers every day, on the same fishing rounds
as where the tuna and dorado were, striking on trolled lures, as well on larger
baitfish for the few anglers that did try that. The area of La Fortuna produced
perhaps the best action on the wahoo, particularly earlier in the day, the sizes
of the ‘hoo ranged up to 50 pounds. We do expect the wahoo bite to become more
consistent as the water temperatures drops more into their preferred range near
80 degrees.

Anglers out of La Playita on the panga fleets have had the option of jigging
moonfish on sabiki rigs right in the marina channel and using them for live
baits off of the bottom structure. These baits were particularly productive on
the Iman Bank in recent days for amberjack, which have been weighing an average
of 30 to 60 pounds, though on Friday a monster 97 pound amberjack was landed.
Some grouper and dogtooth snapper have also been accounted for, but amberjack
have been the most numerous bottom species, many boats are accounting for two to
six ambers, all of which are of quality size. The same time anglers are drifting
these larger baits near the bottom there are yellowfin tuna being found on the
surface, which have preferred the live sardinas.

The bite for the larger grade of yellowfin tuna on the Gordo Banks continued to
be very slow for the second consecutive week, though a handful of tuna in the 50
to 70 pound range were landed, most of these fish were landed by the commercial
panga fleet which were fishing later in the afternoon when these tuna were
becoming more active.

I was called down to the dock Friday at 10 a.m. to weigh in a large yellowfin
tuna. It officially weighed 335.5 pounds. It was caught on rod and reel by a
group of local La Playita pangeros, headed by Sergio Carillo. They hooked it on
a small dead sardina on the Inner Gordo Bank, using 80 pound main line with a 60
pound fluorocarbon leader and landed it in one and a half hours, it became tail
wrapped and was brought up dead from the depths. So another super cow has been
accounted for from the Gordo Banks as we build up towards the WON Tuna Jackpot

A few sierra are now showing up near the shoreline, early in the season,
especially consider the warm water temperature, as sierra do prefer much cooler

Billfish are scattered throughout the zone in limited numbers, though there is a
chance at a variety, with striped, blue and black marlin in the area, as well as
some sailfish.

The combined panga fleets launching from La Playita/Puerto Los Cabos sent out
approximately 101 charters for the week, with anglers accounted for: 3 striped
marlin, 2 sailfish, 19 wahoo, 42 dorado, 695 yellowfin tuna, 9 dogtooth snapper,
9 barred pargo, 116 amberjack, 7 grouper, 4 rainbow runner, 12 sierra and 6

Good fishing, Eric
