Cabo San Lucas striped marlin 'stacked up like cordwood' at Golden Gate Bank

Outposts on Sunday mentioned the phenomenal striped marlin fishing at the Golden Gate north of Cabo San Lucas, but it's worth repeating for those who may have missed it and are considering a trip to Baja California to  try to catch their first marlin.

Capt. George Landrum of Fly Hooker Sportfishing reports that stripers "stacked up like cordwood on the Golden Gate bank."

Landrum continued: "Many boats that worked hard for them were releasing 15 to 25 fish before noon, stopping only because the anglers were worn out. These were the top boats, but the average boats were still managing to release double-digit numbers of fish."

Sailfish remain in the area too, which is surprising for this time of year. Tuna and dorado are being caught in small numbers, mostly because everyone is fishing for marlin.
