Hello everyone; Well we didn’t stop at Alijos rocks, since the other 3 boats hadn’t caught a Wahoo yet, so we headed west. Once we arrived to Alijos bank, we made a quick withdraw. With only limited time to troll, we made our time worth while. We boated 11 Wahoo in the hours we trolled and now we are headed for points south. So until tomorrow, good luck and good fishing.

We have had a great time fishing down in the zone this last week. Everyone on board has at least 1 Tuna over 100lbs and all the Tuna they wanted in the hatch , some hot sticks have several over 100, throw in some cows on top and you have a great trip so far. There are many new personal best for this group and that always is a great feeling on any trip. The 6 father/son combo's on the rig have made for a very special time out here. What a way to spend some quality time with your father/ son than being on the water and fishing at such a beautiful destination. The forecast calls for some wind in a couple of days, so we hope to make up some miles in the good weather before it blows...Now would be a good time to get down here with all of the great fishing going on.
We had another action packed day today. The school size tuna (15-25#) bit steady throughout the late morning and early afternoon. We only stopped when we had enough of this grade tuna. We also had a few stops on wahoo which kept everyone's adrenaline level high.
Two photos today. First, from left to right, Gary Ishii, Riggs Smith, Fred Lee, Tom Walker and Brian Maggio proudly display wahoo they picked out of an after lunch stop. Second, John Finneran with a bright school size yellowfin.
Captain Temo Verboonen, owner/skipper of the Secuestro de Amor, reports phenomenal fishing this past week, starting at just a mile outside the Zihuatanejo Bay. Big schools of quality sized dorados were eager to bite and provided easy limit fishing and just another couple miles farther out was an excellent bite on sailfish and even a few blue marlin. The inshore action has been steadily improving for roosterfish, Sierras, jack crevalle, bonito and even a few wahoo, all following the schools of sardines along the coast line. It's just been a fantastic fishing week and accompanied by picture perfect weather.

A great weather and fishing week from Mazatlan that included some top-notch sea conditions that made for an excellent overall week of action for the offshore and inshore fishing boats.

According to Captain Roberto Marquez, owner of the Fish Cabo Boats, there were plenty of striper strikes on the artificial lures, (they had 7 striper strikes for a single day) but most were blind strike "short biters" and hung on just enough to zip the reels and then disappear from the spread and not return. A little frustration for the anglers and the crew. Drop backs were not working and it appeared to be isolated single fish. However, they did get a couple that stuck to the hooks and allowed for legitimate releases. Additionally, Roberto talked about a number of very small wahoo being caught out in front of the Santa Maria Bay area, in the 4-6 lb. range. Very unusual. Wahoo are a fast growing fish, 20-30 lbs. in the first year, so I surmise these smaller fish were born in Cabo waters and recently, which is new news for me. Female wahoo can lay from 560,000 to 45 million eggs and they do so in spurts. World record is 158 lbs., taken in the Sea of Cortez and a 202-pounder was declined for recognition by IGFA in 2002, so they get pretty big. The overall combined fish counts for a total of 29 days fished reflected 18 stripers, 16 released, 4 sailfish released, 2 wahoo, 2 skipjack and 93 dorado.
Cabo Climate: Cool nights and warm days with temps that ranged from 60 to 86 degrees. It was mostly sunny & warm days with a few passing clouds and light tropical breezes. Sea Conditions: Pacific side, from the Finger Bank & Todos Santos, southerly to Cabo San Lucas and into the Sea of Cortez, all at 81.5 degrees out to the 1000 fathom curve. Outside the 95 & 1150 Fathom spots and just outside the 1,000 fathm curve, temps rose to 82 degrees. Surface breezes ranged from calm to about 9 mph, flowing mostly from the easterly directions.
Best Fishing Area: Migrino on the Pacific side, 3-4 miles offshore for the billfish and the Herradura, just a few miles south of Cabo San Lucas.
Best Bait/Lure: Artificials were the hot ticket for the stripers in the Migrino area. Both, billfish and dorado were pretty eager on the lures.
Live Bait Supply: Excellent supply at the $3.00 per bait rate.

Another great day down here with the morning being really good on these Big fish. Things started out in the dark with the big baits and kept rolling until around 11am when it finally shut down. Lots of new personal best on this trip which makes for happy times in the galley and on deck. As with most Big Fish bites we had some casualties on the big-uns, but you don't always land them all. The evening bite never got going today. Our Hoo's Tuna Run & Gun group is all smiles and having a great time. Plenty of Tuna on board with a decent score on the Hoo's so far as well. Looking for more.
ITS GETTING BETTER. Hey gang, here is what we know so far. Today things got going early on, and kept going till about 1200 hrs and then it virtually evaporated for the rest of the day. Bigguns and more bigguns for us here. I looked at the tally board when the dust settled, and 38 tuna was the number for the am hit. They had 10 fish written down for the cow column , but it was really really busy and I think 8 cows for sure, maybe 10. Everything we caught today was over 100 lbs, and the bulk was 130 to 190 lbs , just incredible fishing down here. I wish I had more pictures, but we were on the ropes for hours, and I did get a few, see them on FB , the 2 stand out cows were caught by Jeff Larson , #255 and bob riddle with a # 250, the weather is as good as the fishing, outstanding. Thanks for checking in, I hope we can keep the ball rolling, Jeff
Today we changed locations and our target species. We were after steady action on yellowfin tuna. What we found was very good yellowfin fishing throughout the day, with yellowtail and wahoo biting at selected times. Our weather is flat calm and predicted to be the same tomorrow so we are staying and will be here again tomorrow. Chip Koehler gets the honors today with a 40 # wahoo.
Capt Justin called in from the Excel with an update, they have been working their way down the Ridge hitting some of the high spots. We have had pretty good action around, the school sized Yellowfin Tuna have been willing biters, as have the Yellowtail and Wahoo. Whatever we have targeted has been biting, we even hit a couple of our honey holes for Grouper and had some good Grouper come over the rail. The weather is perfect and the only thing that would make this trip better is if we can find some of the bigger tuna to bite for us. We will check back in again later.
