Cabo San Lucas Picante Sportfishing reports fishing on target

A member of the Johansson party is all smiles after catching this roosterfish. Outposts will attempt to post the Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, saltwater sportfishing report, courtesy of Team Picante from Picante Sportfishing, each week:

Cabo weather has been great and the fishing has been on target. The fish seem to be hanging around the Gordo Banks and Iman Bank, just east of Cabo. Picante fleet is catching both blue marlin and striped marlin, as well as yellowfin tuna, the occasional skipjack tuna, dorado and wahoo. Still not many boats going out, but the catches are good.

Early in the week, the Vidrine family spent the day aboard Picante’s 35-foot Flybridge, Picante Dream. They caught and released two striped marlin and boated a dorado.

The next day, the boat of the day was again the Picante Dream, with the Kennedy charter releasing three striped marlin and also catching a dorado. 

The busiest action of the week seemed to belong to the Johansson family, which had a great day aboard the 35-foot Cabo Express, Salsa. They released one striped marlin, two mahi mahi, one skipjack and four roosterfish. Their smiling faces showed what a busy but enjoyable day they had.

On Friday, Rick Suarez and his friends and family came all the way from Miami to enjoy the Cabo sportfishing aboard the Picante 29, and weren’t disappointed. They released three striped marlin and boated a yellowfin tuna and four dorado.

Also on Friday, Renan Cesena, fishing on the 24-foot vessel Picantito II, caught a blue marlin estimated to weigh at least 300 pounds (sorry, no pics available).

Sunday ended the fishing week on a good note. The Green party was kept busy all day, boating 10 yellowfin and a wahoo, as well as catching and releasing a striped marlin. It was a great day for all involved.

Picante Sportfishing fleet total, July 5 through July 11: one blue marlin, 22 striped marlin, 19 yellowfin tuna, five dorado, four wahoo and four roosterfish.
