Monthly Fishing Report:
Lets start this fishing report from our charter fleet, this past month the Cabo Express 31 “Picante Expresso” was super productive, landed 23 tunas, released 16 Striped Marlin and in the beginning of July they hooked 2 nice roostersfish.
Picante crew have been finding Yellowfin tuna by La Herradura around 25 miles out. Some days have been better than others but overall the tuna biting has been consistently good over the past few weeks, most boats are getting between 4 – 7 strikes per day and the yellowfin tuna is weighing between 25 and 45 pounds. Mucho sashimi this summer!!!
Yellowfin Tuna madness
The “Ram Rod” Albermarle 31 ft released 4 Striped marlin and 3 cabrillas. There’s a few Rooster fish, jacks and mackerel inshore fishing so if your schedule is tight you can have good results and dinner in half day.
Our fast Cabo Express 32 ft “Picante Express” released 8 beautiful Striped Marlin, and boated 4 yellowfin tuna and 1 dorado.
We remind you that we can arrange for you to take your fish back home, whether natural or smoked, it is frozen and vacuum packed so that you can take it with you on the airplane
“Salsa” Cabo Express 35 ft released 8 Striped marlin and landed 8 Yellowfin tuna by 95 spot, they also boated 2 nice dorados for two delicious family dinner.
The Marlin fishing conditions will continue to get better up to its maximum in September-October, actually we have already started to see more Blue marlin and we expect soon the Black marlin. For Marlin fishing we’ve had the most success trolling live caballito bait and casting when we see them on the surface.
“Picante Dream” our 35 ft Cabo Flybridge got the first wahoo from the season, released 7 Striped Marlin around 110-120 lbs and boated 11 yellowfin tuna and 2 nice amberjacks for the count.
Solid Striped marlin released
Cabo Express 36 ft “Picante Pride” got the first Blue marlin around the 330 pounds, released 6 Striped marlin and landed 4 big tunas weighing between 25 and 30 pounds.
“Picante 40”, our classic Tollycraft released 6 Striped marlin too, boated 5 yellowfin tuna and 1 dorado. The biggest bull dorado for the month was for “Picante 45″, who caught an approx 50 pounder outside the 11:50 Spot. Cabo Express Picante 45 also released 10 Striped Marlin.
Our red one 45 ft Cabo Express, Caliente 45, had 12 Striped Marlin close to La Herradura hitting mostly on caballito bait, they also got another big one for the Blue marlin archive and landed 2 Yellowfin tuna and 2 Dorado the last month.
