Beware of the guys on the street selling boat charters
Please beware of the guys in the street selling boat charters. If you wait till the day you are fishing and go to the dock where your boat is many times people will mislead you to another boat or dock trying to put you on a boat that was not meant for you. You need to have a person guide you to your boat, who is from a reputable charter company. This way there is no confusion or misleading. Please remember when renting Sport fishing boats in Cabo that you rent your boat from reputable and established business. Walk into a fishing fleet office and ask questions about what you are getting and what are the costs? You don’t want to rent boats from vendors in the streets and you do not want to book through shady websites offering you the world. Check through travel forums about reputable fishing fleets to deal with. Look for testimonials about the fleet your booking, your charter with. Ask about what will the boat be supplying? Will it include beverages or lunches? How much does it cost to fillet your catch? Check to see if charter boat is insured? Ask about getting your catch smoked? Check cost of a fishing license. These are just a few things to consider when booking your charter boat. We will be talking more about this in the next weeks fishing report. Until next time good fishing and we hope to see you in Cabo soon. Come by the office here in Cabo and get all the latest up to date fishing report.
Sometimes known as Yellowtail Jack, Forktail, Mossback, White Salmon, Horse-eye Bonito, Coronado
California Yellowtail are found and caught commercially off California and Baja California,
Mexico. They reach sexual maturity at an early age, but are relatively slow growing and known
to form spawning aggregations, making them vulnerable to fishing pressure. Catches of
California Yellowtail have fluctuated greatly over the years, tending to be greater during El Nino
events when waters are warmer and much less during cool, La Nina events. Abundance levels of
California Yellowtail populations are not known, but catches in recent years have been low.
California Yellowtail are captured with both set and drift gillnets and hook-and-line. Drift
gillnets and hook-and-line cause minimal habitat damage while set gillnets may cause moderate
habitat damage. Bycatch in these fisheries is likely moderate. Some management regulations are
in place for the California fisheries, such as a minimum size limit and restricted fishing areas, but
regulations are not in place for Mexico fisheries.
