Cabo San Lucas Fish Report July 29-August 4th
Welcome August! The fishing has really started to pick up especially if you are looking to land that bucket list Marlin! We are fishing close by for the Marlin and Dorado, farther out if you are looking for Yellowfin Tuna.
Monday was the final day for the Minvielles who fished 3 days, Joey finally catching over 50 Marlin, congrats Joey!! Him and wife Ashley finished their trip with a bang aboard the Marlin Queen catching 2 Dorado and releasing 5 Striped Marlin, making their 3 day total for Marlin, 17…Awesomeness… The Garafano crew also fished Monday and caught 4 Striped Marlin and 2 Sailfish, Wednesday they lost a Blue Marlin and caught 2 Dorado.

Philip Chudak who had no luck with us earlier last week, went out again Tuesday and had a FANTASTIC day. He released 3 Striped Marlin, a Yellowfin Tuna and 3 Dorado. SO glad he ended up catching some fish!!Mark Saxon and family released a Striped Marlin as did the Young’s. The Jones’ fished aboard El Nuevo and boated 4 Yellowfin Tuna.
The Bates clan fished on El Nuevo Wednesday and caught 3 Dorado and released a Striped MArlin. Shawn Sullivan and buddy Frank fished on ReelRum, boated 2 Dorado and a nice Wahoo. Terry Humphrey and buddies fised on the MArlin Queen and boated 3 Dorado. Jeff and Alex Gochenour along with Andrew Irwin had a great day finding Roosterfish, they caught 2. Thursday was an absolutely amazing day with the Donahus on ReelRum catching 6 Striped Marlin, Mitchell Buckingham and his group boating 4 Dorado and the Garcia’s boating 4 Dorado and releasing 4 Striped MArlin. John Jefery and his family did not do so bad either, releasing 4 Striped Marlin, 10 Dorado and boating 4 Yellowfin Tuna.
We had the first of the Rutherford Clan fishing with us also on Thursday, Jason and Kristen, they caught 6 Yellowfin a Marlin and a Dorado. These guys always come each year and the whole family fishes on several boats. This year was no different. Rip, John and his family and Mr. Johnny and Sandra all took part. This time they brought along pals the Dickeys – who I think won the fish off the last day, but in all these guys caught a whopping 19 Striped Marlin and 19 Dorado, there were some really big ones in there too! Congrats guys!
The White’s fished aboard Colleen’s Magic all weekend and in 3 days of fishing brought in Several Stiped Marlin, some Dorado and a really nice around 320lb Blue Marlin.
Luke Billingsly and his crew fished on 19’s Toy for the day Friday and caught a couple of Striped Marlin and a nice Sailfish.
Michael Cox and gang fished Friday and Saturday on El Nuevo and caught 3 Dorado, 3 Yellowfin Tuna and 2 Striped Marlin, not bad for two days in Cabo!
We did have somewhat of a lull in the action for some of our boats Friday and Saturday as the currents were changing direction as were the water temps. The Yellowfin moved farther out and the Marlin and Dorado moved to different spots. Hopefully these guys will give it another go and have some better luck next time!
Joel Caro and his group fished on 3 of our partner boats Saturday, they DID find the school of tuna and on three boats caught a total of 19 Tuna, 3 Dorado and a Striped Marlin. The biggest success of the day was probably Sean Sullivan who fished only a half day and released 4 Striped Marlin.
Finally, Sunday proved to be a great closer to this great start to August. Dustin Andreas and crew on ReelRum caught a Dorado and released a Striped Marlin and a Sailfish. Mike McLemore and crew released 4 Striped Marlin aboard RumRUnnin, the Bosques released 2 Striped Marlin and boated a Dorado. The Davis fam came in a bit early on 19’s Toy but still managed to catch a Dorado and release a Stripe Marlin. Nolan Dooley and crew caught 4 Dorado, 2 Yellowfin and a Striped Marlin on RedRUm for a 12 day and Mark Demonaz who fished on one of oue partner boats with Captain Antonio caught 14 Yellowfin, 4 SkipJack and 3 Dorado.
