fishing tips and tricks
 Apr 16, 2006; 08:39PM - Flashing stick baits for pike.
 Category:  Fishing tips and tricks
 Author Name:  Kasow
 Author E-mail:  dmkadow@earthlink.net
Tip&Trick Description 1: When fishing for aggressive or active pike try using shallow running stick bait and retrieve the lure until it is about 10-15 feet away from the boat/pier. Then give it a jerk. The lure will create a bright flash that triggers the pike to bite. This technique works best in clear to mildly clear or stained water. You can try this for bass too.

Cabo Fish Report
January 2 - 8, 2012

WEATHER: Our lows this week were in the mid 60's and the highs in the mid 80's, just about perfect once again! If you want to get away from that cold white stuff come on down! We had partly cloudy skies mid-week but the week started and ended with plenty of sun. It was a bit strange though in the fact that for the past several years we have had at least one day of at least sprinkles in each of the first four weeks of the year, now we have broken that pattern.
WATER: The swells stayed small all around the cape, in fact they were so small on the Sea of Cortez side between San Jose and San Lucas that it almost seemed we were on a lake. On Saturday the water on that side looked like a mirror as well with almost no wind ripples. On the Pacific side the swells were 2-4 feet and again with almost no wind for most of the week. The breeze did kick up just a little bit on Sunday morning but it only put a small chop on the almost flat water for a short time. At the end of the week water temperatures almost across the entire fishing area were 71 degrees with the exception of cooler, greener water of 70 degrees in the area of the Golden Gate Banks, a small intrusion of 73-74 degree water on the 95 spot and south of there. To get to any consistent 74-76 degree water you had to go 50 miles to the southwest.
BAIT: Small Caballito, some Mackerel and some junk baits were available at $3 each, frozen horse Ballyhoo could be had for between $3 and $4 each and there were a few sardines to be found toward San Jose at $25 a scoop.
FISHING:
BILLFISH: The Striped Marlin bite is still down from what we were seeing at the beginning of the week before when some boats were getting double digit numbers just to the inside of the Golden Gate and slightly north along the beach, but the fish seemed to have started biting again as this week toward the end of the week a few boats fishing the same area were getting between two and five releases per day. Of course there were a few scattered fish elsewhere, but this seemed to be the best place to go for a good shot. There was a problem however. You HAD to have the right bait to get them, they were not biting on lures or on junk baits or on Caballito, they were focused on Mackerel. If you were not at the bait boats early, or could not find and mackerel in the area to catch on your own, you may as well give it up, the fish were that picky. But....if you had the right stuff and were there early you stood a decent chance of getting bit. Naturally our fingers are crossed that more Mackerel maker it into our area and the fish follow them. On another good note, we had a Panga fishing on the 3rd that spotted and tried to bait what is the first Swordfish I have heard of this year. The Captain and experienced angler both estimated the fish at between 400 and 500 pounds and found him on the Pacific side just off the lighthouse. They baited the fish only to have it sink out after several attempts to get it to eat both dead and live bait. A sign of things to come?
YELLOWFIN TUNA: The great bite we had last week continued into the beginning of this week as boats were able to get on decent quality fish of between 25-35 pounds only 18 to 25 miles offshore on the Pacific side. How quickly things can change! Almost the next day the currents changed and the larger fish were gone, only to be found in the warmer 74 degree water 40+ miles to the southwest. Closer to home there were still Yellowfin to be caught but they were smaller fish in the 8-15 pound class, and even they were being a bit picky. I did not hear of any reports of Yellowfin coming from the Sea of Cortez side of the Cape, even the Gorda Banks did not seem to have any of the home guard fish on it. If you did get into the smaller Yellowfin the best lure was small hootchies in darker colors, small red being one of the favorites.
DORADO: The Dorado bite continues to wind down as the water cools. And the fish are getting smaller. On the Cortez side the fish were found between Red Hill (the Westin Resort) and the Gorda Banks. These were small fish, a 10 pound fish was cause for celebration and they were not easy to come by. The best bait was sardines. Chumming heavily and fly-lining them on light flouro-carbon leader resulted in limits of these smaller fish. On the Pacific side the fish were slightly larger, but not much, and there were fewer of them. Slow trolling live bait just off the beach in 200 feet of water resulted in most of the better catches, and a large fish this week would have been 15 pounds with most of them barely reaching 10 pounds in size.
WAHOO: I saw a couple of Wahoo flags flying this week but there is a distinct possibility they were for Sierra as I did not hear of any Wahoo caught.
INSHORE: The good news is that there are some decent Yellowtail out there, just not a lot of them yet. One boat trolling lures just off the beach landed a fish of about 30 pounds during the middle of the week and several Pangas reported fish to 20 pounds, but not in any numbers. A few larger Roosterfish to 30 pounds were caught while drifting live bait along the beach searching for Yellowtail and Dorado and there were fair numbers of smaller fish right on the beach. Sierra have started to make a showing along the sandy stretches of the beach as well but the sizes have been small, so far only one school of large fish has been reported. Most of the ones I have heard of have been in the 3-4 pound class.
FISH RECIPE: Mary just posted a great recipe of a Dorado lettuce wrap, darn that was good stuff! Hopefully we will have another recipe up this week as well, hope it is as good!
NOTES: This has been a good week for fishing, not great, but pretty good. Mostly a matter of the right place at the right time, as it most often is. With great weather, good fishing, whales to watch and the holiday crowds gone it is pretty darn nice! Time to take the pup to the beach for the Sunday walk, home for a good breakfast and a Bloody Mary then down to town for some football! This weeks report was written to the sounds of and the feel of my pup panting and nosing me to “get done now dad, it's time for the beach!”. Until next week, tight lines!



Gordo Banks Pangas
San Jose del Cabo

January 8, 2012
Anglers –

As vacationing families now return home so children can resume their school
schedules, crowds of tourists are much lighter than how they were during the holiday
season. The weather has been on a warmer trend, mostly sunny skies, light winds,
with high temperature ranging into the 80s. Ocean water temperatures were now
ranging from 70 to 74 degrees. Clarity varied from area to area, but overall
conditions were improved over previous weeks.

Anglers were able to find live sardinas for bait without much difficulty and there
were schools of mackerel and sardinetas found locally. Fleets were fishing in all
directions, this past week there were more consistent reports coming from the
Pacific side of Cabos San Lucas, this is where water temperatures were warmest.
Areas off of Chileno, Palmilla, Cardon and Iman also produced scattered action.

The striped marlin bite was most productive off of Cabo San Lucas and the Old Light
House areas, three to fifteen miles from shore, scores of tailing billfish could be
seen on any given charter, though these fish proved to have lock jaw at times,
different techniques were used with varied success, trolling lures, casting and
soaking live baits, etc..Even though mackerel were still found schooling off of San
Jose del Cabo, charters in this region have not seen much in the way of marlin this
past week on these grounds.

Dorado were being found in smaller sized schools, fish averaged 5 to 15 pounds, with
a percentage of larger fish up to 25 pounds accounted for. The dorado were found
close to shore and also out on the offshore fishing grounds. These fish can grow up
to five pounds per month, better to release smaller sized dorado so that they can
spawn and have the chance to grow to maturity. Dorado have been fairly abundant in
recent weeks, considering that this is the tail end of the normal season for them.

This is the time when more inshore action typically begins, so far there has been
limited activity for sierra, with juvenile roosterfish also being found, we look for
this action to improve as the season progresses. This is also the season when more
bottom species become more prevalent, so far only mixed results for some cabrilla,
pargo, bonito, amberjack and yellowtail have been found. Trolling with live bait,
hoochies and rapalas worked close to shore and jigging with yo-yo’s over structure
produced a mix of cabrilla, amberjack, bonito and snapper. Lots of hammerhead sharks
are congregated on rocky high spots now, they proved to be a nuisance when trying to
catch the targeted species.

Yellowfin tuna action has switched this past month from the Sea of Cortez to off of
the Pacific and Chileno, associated with porpoise most of the time, more often
anywhere from 10 to 20 miles offshore. Most of these fish were in the 15 to 30 pound
range, though there were reports of tuna up to 100 pounds or more encountered. With
fluctuating conditions this bite was hit or miss. In recent days there were signs of
more yellowfin action.

No shortage of whales now, the Iman Bank has been a hot spot for humpback whales,
while the gray whales prefer the inshore waters off of the Pacific beaches.

There have been news bulletins about a new Mexican law now starting to be enforced
this month, Tourist Visas are now required for all anglers fishing in Mexican
waters. This will not be a factor for anglers traveling by air to Los Cabos, since
tourist visas are officially processed and stamped on arrival at the SJDC airport.
This law is going to impact anglers departing by sea from Southern California and
the heading south to fish in Mexican waters, these anglers will need to obtain their
tourist visas in advance.

The combined panga fleets launching from La Playita/Puerto Los Cabos Marina sent out
approximately 46 charters for the week, with anglers reporting a fish count of: 2
wahoo, 5 yellowfin tuna, 235 dorado, 14 roosterfish, 112 sierra, 8 amberjack, 2
yellowtail, 12 hammerhead shark, 25 bonito, 18 cabrilla, 3 dogtooth snapper and 28
pargo.

Good fishing, Eric
