Cabo San Lucas reports improved marlin activity and a 77-pound wahoo
Tourism is still painfully down in Cabo San Lucas and elsewhere in Mexico, but fishing apparently is picking up.
Tracy Ehrenberg, general manager of Pisces Sportfishing, just e-mailed to report that anglers aboard Ruthless caught three striped marlin and one of the largest wahoo caught this spring. The wahoo (pictured) weighed 77 pounds and was caught by Thomas McAlpin and son Eric (middle left and right), who are visiting from Madison, Ala.
They caught the speedy wahoo near Los Frailes in the Sea of Cortes.
On Thursday the Pisces report began with this summation: "Catches are beginning to creep up as water temperatures begin to climb and striped marlin were again our top catch this week. However it was a bit hit-and-miss as to where the marlin were located on any given day. The better days were towards the end of the week when stripers began to bite close to shore between a mile and a mile-and-a-half off of the arch and Solmar beach."
