Cabo San Lucas Fish Report – January 20 – 26
What a beautiful week it has been here in Cabo San Lucas. Still a little warmer than normal for this time of year, but the water temp did drop a few degrees this week. The fishing seemed to be better at the beginning of the week then tapered a bit over the weekend.
We were still catching Striped Marlin if you were looking, which the Leifheits sure were. It seems everytime they come they ALWAYS release a Marlin. They have the Marlin bug! This trip they were out with both Jesus’s again on RumRunnin. Day one they did release a nice Striped Marlin around 200 lbs and they also caught 6 Dorado. Some of which were released. Day 2 they were back at it, looking for some Yellowfin, they found the pods of Porpoise and went to it, catching 21 in all, most of which were released along with another Striped Marlin they released on the way back to the marina. These guys always slay it out there!
The Dorado bite held in there at the beginning of the week with Richard Ward and his crew bringing in the most in one day aboard El Nuevo, with 7.
Wayne Rychnovsky was down for his anniversary trip and brought down some friends for Tuna fishing. They got lucky catching 22 in all. They each got to take some to their hometown to enjoy for months to come! The Tuna have not been too large to speak of, with some rumors of commercial Tuna fishing boats not too far away. Jeff James and his fam went out to get some Tuna on 19’s Toy and boated just enough to take home! You can see in the picture the average size of the Yellowfin.
We did have a couple of unlucky boats this week unfortunately, most of which were 1/2 day boats or those that did not want to fish for Spanish Mackerel which were biting along the inshore on the Pacific side. James Blewett and his crew fished on Nuevo for 2 days and got skunked day 2. They brought me a present though, really a present for the boat, a flag, with a SKUNK on it 🙂 All in good fun they said, the crew worked super hard and sometimes, you just don’t “catch” what you want. We appreciate their good humor!
Thank you guys for reading! Until next time.
