Today we kicked off the first day of our trip which was mostly spent traveling down and relaxing. Beautiful weather and calm seas allowed us to rig up and get familiar with the gang. With a few hours late in the day we did manage to wet a line and catch a couple handfuls of nice dorado for the galley. Giving us high hopes for the road ahead of us and it was a nice day to be on the ocean.
A good morning on the Big Tuna again for us as the bite started out around 0500 with Rich Rose tying into his 3rd Cow for the trip, shortly after Peter Wright landed a Cow. A couple hrs later Kurt Kohler landed a nice Birthday Cow as well. Most of the fish were 60-100lbs with the exception of the Big-uns. We did have a few heartbreaks on Giants this morning as well. A handful more Wahoo and then the lull came along same as yesterday. With changing conditions we chose to head to another area. The weather is absolutely wonderful, although very warm. We will be at our next destination in the morning. Wish us Luck

No Report Received from Puerto Morelos for Fishing and it's probably due to the week's wet weather conditions for the past week? It's been a rather wet and rainy week from Puerto Morelos and the rains continue as the result of Topical Depression 9, (TD-9) that has moved across from the Bay of Campeche and appears to be fizzling out as it passes over the mountains. This unusual movement of TD-9 actually began in the Pacific and moved across Mexico into the Bay of Campeche and now moves easterly, across the peninsula, leaving plenty of wet weather in it's track and Puerto Morelos has received their fair share. Rain is still in the forecast but drying out for the coming weekend. This is the first storm reversal I have seen since reporting for this area, contradicting the typical easterly surface winds that flow across from the African continent. Certainly an unusual pattern to have a storm birthed in the Pacific, cross over to the Caribbean and continue the west to east flow.
PM Climate: Temps ranged from 72 nights to 88 daytime highs and a 94% humidity rate. Mostly cloudy days with a bit of passing sunshine periods and scattered rains and thunderstorms. Surface winds continue to flow in mostly from the northeasterly directions. Sea Conditions: The temps have remained good and stable through this wet period, holding at 82-83 degrees and northerly surface breezes to 16 mph.
According to our local Zihuatanejo reporter, Captain Temo Verboonen, it was another wet and rainy week through the area and the Port was closed a couple of days due to rough seas and windy conditions. We did get out for a couple of days and the fishing was good, especially for the sailfish and dorado with both biting along the current line that is holding much debris. One notable improvement for the week was a better showing and bite for the roosterfish and bonitos along the inshore beaches on the slack windy days. It seems like it's been a very long rainy season this year and just doesn't want to give up, at least not yet.
IZ Climate: A rather wet & rainy week with scattered thunder showers to full rain almost on a daily basis.
Sea Conditions: Only a couple of fishable days during the week and those days offered good fishing results, too. Sea temps stable at 81.5-82 degrees. Surface breezes flowing mostly from the easterly directions and followed y a couple of days off northerly wind that ranged from 5 to 17 mph.
Best Fishing Area: Starting at the current line, about 8 miles or so, directly in front of the Zihuatanejo Bay entrance.
Best Lure/Bait: The rigged baits were doing well for the offshore fishing and the sailfish and dorado were both fairly eager to make the baits disappear.
Bait Supply: Remains good! Plenty of fresh baits for rigging and good quantities of live bait for those that wished to have it aboard. Live bait is $5.00 per dozen in this area.
The billfish bite for the Aries Fleet out of the Marina El Cid was pretty decent this past week and about the only change was the diminished bite on dorado. Water temps, clarity and feed biomass remain readily available at the buoys but for some reason, the dorado took the week off and we will have to wait and see if it picks back up again. The overall fish counts for a total of 13 offshore fishing days reflected 10 sailfish, (4 released) 4 dorado and 8 yellowfin tuna while the inshore super pangas reported in for 5 days fishing that resulted in 1 dorado, 19 snappers and 39 jack crevalle, (mostly in the 10-12 lb. ranges).
Mazatlan Climate: A few partly cloudy and few sunny days with temps that ranged from 71 nights to 91 daytime highs and a 57% humidity rate.
Sea Conditions: Surface breezes flowing mostly from the westerly directions to 13 mph, providing just enough surface movement to make the sailfish want to bite. Temps ranged from 80-81 degrees inshore and came up to 84 degrees at about 10 miles offshore.
Best fishing area: Seemed like most of the sailfish were in the 17-14 mile range out to the southwest of the Marina El Cid.
Best Bait/Lure: Sailfish were best on the rigged baits and the yellowfin tuna were all taken on tuna feathers of assorted colors.
Bait Supply: Remained very good for both, fresh baits for rigging and live bait at $1.00 per bait.
A mostly sunny & warm week with clear skies and light tropical breezes. The Los Cabos Billfish Tournament wound up on Saturday with Alaskan angler, Jason Snyder, landing the biggest blue marlin on the lst fishing day, taking home $20,700.00 for his fight effort. Jason was fishing the Reel Gold Team. Angler Gonzalo Gastillo, San Jose Del Cabo, landed a 180 lb. yellowfin tuna for top tuna, fishing for Estrella del Norte Team, capturing $2,100.00 and Richard Matson, fishing for Reel Gold Team captured the biggest wahoo, checking in at 43.6 lbs. All in all, it was a fun and successful tournament that was hosted at the Playa Grande Resort. Today was the first day of the Bisbee Tournament and as of this afternoon, I don't have any final first day information. High billfish boat for the week was the "Fish Cabo", reporting in for 3 days fished and reflecting 1 blue marlin released in the Bisbee, 4 stripers released, 2 sailfish released and 6 dorado and followed by the "Tuna Time", also with 3 days that resulted in 3 stripers released and 7 dorado. The overall fish counts for 18 days fished reflected a total of 1 blue marlin released, 10 stripers released, 2 sailfish released, 17 dorado and 1 yellowfin tuna.
Cabo Climate: Temps ranged from 68 nights to 95 daytime highs and lots of sunshine over the area. Humidity levels at 69%. Very nice weather for the fall fishing tournaments. Sea Conditions: Good on both sides of the peninsula. Surface breezes to about 10 mph, flowing mostly from the easterly directions. Temps on the Pacific side from the Finger Bank to Cristobal were stable at 82-83 degrees and warming at Cabo Falso and around to the Gorda Banks at 84-85 degrees.
Best Fishing Area: Between the Herradura, (aka Horseshoe) and the 1150 fathom spot for the past couple of days and today, it was the outer Gorda Banks area
Best Bait/Lure: Live bait on the stripers and a few dorado and the sailfish. The blue marlin was on an artificial.
Bait Supply: Good live bait supply at the $3.00 per bait rate.
