San Jose del Cabo Anglers – February 8, 2019

We saw more north winds through most of the week, calming down for the
weekend, ideal climate now, moderate crowds, making this a great time
to visit the Los Cabos area. Ocean temperatures dropped into the 70 to
72 degree range though most of the region, transition period for
migrating pelagic gamefish, warmer water species head south during
this colder period.

Offshore action was limited mainly to looking for striped marlin,
action was better early in the week and became more scattered as the
week progressed. Schools of mackerel were found off of the San Jose
del Cabo grounds, as well as sardineta, chihuil and inside the marina
area there were caballito. Some unconfirmed reports of sardinas being
seen along beach stretches north of Cabo San Lucas, so we are hoping
that maybe these baitfish will become available.

With the cooling waters the action for the more glamorous species such
as yellowfin tuna, dorado and wahoo has all but halted. Normal deal
during this time frame, besides the on and off striped marlin action
offshore, fleets start to search out inshore and bottom structure for
a variety of smaller fish. We are waiting to see if a run of
yellowtail and red snapper develops. There were red crabs found this
week drifting to the surface on the Gordo Banks, this is normally a
positive sign for finding the red snapper. So far the snapper action
was mainly for the smaller sized fish, the huachinango of over ten
pounds have not been plentiful yet. More triggerfish off the rock
piles than anything else. Drift fishing with pieces of squid seemed to
produce the more consistent action, most of these fish smaller in
size, but all of them very fine eating. We saw a few sheepshead and
pompano in the mix.

The weather feels like we are now on a warming trend, at least we have
now seen the frigid low temperatures as the week before. We need these
north winds to lay down more and give a chance for ocean conditions to
rebound. Recently there were strong currents moving in and out, this
always make it tough to try and concentrate on bottom action.

The combined sportfishing fleet out of the panga area from Puerto Los
Cabos Marina reported an estimated 59 charters for the week and
anglers reported an approximate fish count of: 1 sailfish, 13 striped
marlin, 7 dorado, 2 yellowfin tuna, 92 bonito, 125 red snapper, 4
bagueta, 6 yellow snapper, 6 pompano, 3 sheepshead, 13 sierra and 85

Good Fishing, Eric
