Spring break had some days of choppy seas and Marlin fishing was up and down, tought the days were full of inshore fishing that made up for those slower days. Fishing in Cabo during April and May may bring Dorado, Swordfish and more Striped marlin bites, plus some early Yellowfin tuna.
The best bait/lure was caballitos, mackerel and lures
The best fishing spots this March were at Cortes side 95 and 11:50 spots.
March Inshore fishing was good for sierra, yellowtail, grouper and snapper, and the whole fleet kept seeing and releasing sharks and thresher sharks.
Enjoy the pictures!
