FISHING REPORT - May 2024 - Picante Sportfishing

Celebrating 30 years
Sashimi anyone

It’s no surprise the bite in May was really good, better one than April numbers. There were days of double digits on Striped marlin and the Sailfish was there too, and of course the supporting cast of RoosterfishDorado and Wahoo were out in full force. This May the Sharks were collecting taxes and football Yellowfin tuna appeared to the delight of our clients.

The best bait/lure was caballito, ballyhoo and lures
The best fishing spots this May were: 11:50, Cortez side and Chileno
Enjoy the pictures!

Take a look at our Cabo fishing calendar to know the species most likely to bite this month
