Cabo San Lucas Picante sportfishing reports more fish spotted than fishermen to catch them
Outposts will attempt to post the Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, saltwater sportfishing report, courtesy of Team Picante from Picante Sportfishing, each week:
With lots of fish being spotted by the boats, it's a shame that there aren't more fishermen out there. Crowds picked up a little this weekend, but there is still some good fishing being missed. The westerly winds have been blowing and pushing the fishing to the Gordo and Imen Banks. It was a little bumpy on the Pacific, but those that endured were catching fish.
Some of the highlights for the fleet included the Killion party, from Texas, who chartered the 35-foot Picante Dream and had some big times around the peninsula, catching two striped marlin (which they released), and boating a dorado as well as five big red snapper.Michael Soper also made his second visit in a month, bringing friends and clients to chase marlin. The group chartered the Picante 29 and caught and released two striped marlin, then caught three dorado, which they kept for their dining pleasure.
Aboard the 35-foot Sportfisher, Cisco, the Ellis group was rewarded for their time with a fun day of fishing, bringing in a total catch of three marlin, five yellowfin tuna and five dorado.
The Antis party had a great day fishing on July 4 aboard the Salsa. They boated three yellowfin and two dorado, plus two striped marlin, caught and released.
Total Picante Sportfishing fleet total, June 28 through July 4: 10 striped marlin,10 yellowfin tuna, 11 dorado, five red snapper and two amberjacks.
