January Magic in Cabo

January 21, 2018Location: Marina, Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur, Mexico

Its been a magic January with excelent conditions and fishing down here in Cabo! The sea temps have been maintaining in the mid 70s and air temps in the lo 80s. Hard to beat with very little wind and swell! The inshore action is picking up with a giod snap on the sierra mackarel and pompsno, with a few roosterfish, jacks, and snapoers to round it off! As we loose a few more degrees of sea temp the yellowtail and amberjack sould make their appearance. The marlin are showing in good numbers and we're finding them tight in, no more than 1-3 miles off the coast. Their are bilnd strikes with the dirado and wahoo also. Sewed bait ballyhoo are the choice for these grabbers but we also picked a few up on the jigsxwith white, green/black, and petrolero colors working for us. All of our fishing has been on the Pacific side from Cabo Falso up to the Golden Gate Bank. Notable catches on the other side (sea of cortez) includes a couple of cow tuna at the outer gordo bank and a fat 500+ black marlin caught off Chileno. Its been a rockin 2018 so far and its just begun!! Lets go bag a fatty, Amogos!!
