Cabo Fishing Report – April 15-22, 2018

Cabo Fishing bite was great this past week with most of our full day boats targeting Yellowfin Tuna. Most of the fish were in the 20-30lb range but if you had a school to yourself some of the better quality fish in the 40-50lb range were coming up here and there. We were generally finding the fish between 15-30 miles out, from the 1150 bank over to the San Jaime bank. When the wind was strong on the Pacific we’d head towards the Sea of Cortez, and vice versa. It’s nice to have that luxury here in Cabo. When we did fish the Pacific, after limiting out on Yellowfin, a few boats went to check on the Striped Marlin bite and they are still chasing bait around the Golden Gate bank, which is 20 miles up the coast. Incredible that they have stayed thick at the Golden Gate into mid –April, but the bait is still there and the water temps are still north of 70 degrees. Been a long time since I’ve seen it like this. Very few Wahoo and Dorado this past week, but like I said, most boats were chasing the Tuna. Half-day boats that fished the inshore got into a good mix of Roosterfish, Snapper, Spanish Mackerel, and Bonita. Also saw a more consistent bite on Yellowtail this past week and I expect that bite to get even better in the coming weeks.
