November 15, 2020

As much of the northern territories are now feeling wintry weather conditions, here is Southern Baja this fall has been pleasantly warm, ideal
climate now, highs still reaching into the 80s and barely feeling chilly early in the morning. Wind patterns are beginning to be a bit more
unpredictable, blowing from out of the north most days, especially later in the day. Ocean water temperature is averaging around 80 degrees, on the
Pacific it has dipped to 76 degrees. Crowds of tourists are arriving, as these next couple of weeks the busy season will be wind down and we will
hope that people do decide to travel during the Christmas and New Year vacation periods.

Schools of sardinas continue to be found around the marina jetty area, also caballito, with other options being ballyhoo and slabs of squid. Some boats
are scouting out options for chihuil, should be more of that in coming weeks, as these are special candy bait for wahoo.

This last week started out with a bang, as on Monday there was a 310 lb. yellowfin brought in, taken off of the 26 ft. super panga “Regina Dos”.
This fish was hooked while trolling a live skipjack on the Outer Gordo Bank and was brought to gaff after a two hour battle on 80 lb. gear, the fight
continued though, as the skipper “Gachi” and the one angler, Mike Witoshynski from Florida were unable to haul the beast into their boat due
to particularly tough windy conditions, they did eventually hail help from a nearby yacht and then hauled it over the railing and headed to the dock
area where a crowd had gathered after hearing the news. Later in the week there was yet even a larger super cow boated, this one weighing in at a
whopping 371 lb., taken by a team of anglers aboard the locally based 35 ft. Cabo Sportfisher “Hard Efforts”, they were able to bring this beast to
gaff within one hour on 100 lb. tackle.

The majority of local charters were fishing more towards the north, on grounds from the Iman, San Luis and to Vinorama. These areas were producing
more consistent action than were the Gordo Banks, tough no super cows were taken from these grounds. The yellowfin found here were more in the 50 to
80 lb. class, still finicky though, at times showing themselves, feeding on the surface, though then vanishing just as quickly. Some days biting early
and on others later in the day. Boats were doing well to land one or two of these quality grade yellowfin, most of these striking on sardinas, leaders
of no more than 50 lb. proved more successful.

On these same grounds and a little closer to shore there were decent numbers of dorado found, though it was not easy to find many that were up
to 15 lb., the majority being under ten pounds. Wahoo action was still sporadic, we did see a handful of these highly sought after gamefish
brought in on most days, of course there were other stories of fast wahoo strikes resulting in lost chances. Most of the wahoo strikes were taken on
trolled Rapalas, though a handful were also taken on rigged baits. We look for this action to become more consistent in the next couple of weeks, as
we are now nearing the traditional peak season for these fish. Of the fish we saw, sizes ranged up to 35 lb.

Main species being found off the bottom were smaller sized pargo, red snapper, triggerfish and bonito, with an occasional leopard grouper
(cabrilla) and a few prized 40 lb. dogtooth snapper.

Along the shoreline sierra are starting to show up, these fish prefer the cooling water temperatures, feisty little fighters, averaging 2 to 6 lb.
More whales are being sighted in recent days, as the annual migration for these mammals is just now beginning.

Good fishing, Eric

November 8, 2020

This time frame would normally be one of the busiest periods for the Los Cabos area, though with all that has happened this year with the world wide
Covid 19 epidemic we are seeing much lighter crowds. Though this past week the area was bustling with the season’s final big tournament, the WON Tuna
Jackpot, which ended up attracting 149 teams and had accumulated total payouts of over one million dollars. Largest yellowfin tuna was 210 lb.,
local La Playita team fishing aboard the sportfisher “Burro” made the big money on the first day with their 175 lb. tuna, congratulations to them.

Weather patterns remain warmer than usual, but slowly we are feeling fall conditions settle in. Ocean water temperature now averaging about 82
degrees. The overall fishing action has not been up to normal standards now for about the past month, we do anticipate that we will have a good late
season as conditions shape up. Most common catches have been dorado, though most are under 10 pounds, hard to find any over 20 lb. Sardinas, ballyhoo
and some caballito have been main bait source, as well as some slabs of squid.

Local fleets have been finding better chances for the yellowfin tuna on the grounds from the Iman Bank to Vinorama, often seeing fish come up and then
just as quickly vanishing, finding it tough to entice any strikes. We have seen a handful of quality grade 40 to 70 lb. yellowfin accounted for, also
there have been some schools of football sized tuna showing as well, more of these found from Palmilla to Santa Maria.

Dorado were found in all directions, though more numerous on the Pacific, but again most are smaller in size, striking on lures and rigged baits,
such as ballyhoo. Wahoo were spread out as well, really no particular hot spot and hard to find one over 30 lb., as in the recent tournament there
were only three over 30 lb. weighed in.

Not much going on with billfish now, we saw more sailfish on local grounds than anything else. A mix of bottom species, with the highlight being a few
dogtooth snapper to 40 lb. Again more triggerfish than anything else.

Good fishing, Eric

October 25, 2020

With the resurgence of corona virus cases in areas throughout the U.S. and with the upcoming election we are seeing fluctuating numbers of visitors,
less than half the amount than we would expect for this time frame. Though locally the tourist industry is following strict health protocols and the
situation seems under control, people are just nervous about dealing with airport travel and worried about the whole deal. The richest marlin
tournament in the world was held this week, with some 129 teams battling for a record sum of 4.6 million dollars. The event ran for three days and
there ended up not being any qualifying fish over 300 lb. landed, so there were no huge pay outs this year, though there were several stories of huge
fish being lost, which if landed would have been worth millions. We will hope for better results next year.

With ocean temperatures in the upper 80s conditions seemed unusually warm, though presently we are feeling a cooling trend and the coming week is
forecast to bring more north wind and cooler temperatures, so we should also see water cool off and are hoping the all-around action improves.
Anglers were using sardinas, slabs of squid mainly for bait, with some larger baitfish found on the fishing grounds as well. Schooling sardinas
were now more abundant along beach stretches near Chileno.

The highlight this week was a 311 lb. yellowfin tuna that was weighed in on Saturday, taken by a group of anglers on the local sportfisher “Bacco” out
of Puerto Los Cabos after a 3 1/2 hour battle on the Gordo Banks. The overall tuna bite was very slow this week, another 110 lb. tuna was brought
in from a super panga mid-week and a scattering of a few other yellowfin in the 30 to 70 lb. class, but limited numbers. Most of these fish were taken
near the San Luis Bank. One factor on the slower action seems to be the added pressure of all of the Ease Cape charters also traveling long
distances to congregate and fish on our local grounds.

Wahoo were becoming more active, still spotty, but a couple of charters ended up with between 3 and 5 wahoo per morning. Most of this action near
Iman Bank and further north while trolling Rapalas, sizes ranged to over 40 lb. We expect this wahoo bite to improve in coming weeks as water cools
some. Dorado action was sporadic as well, some days we were seeing decent numbers of fish up to 15 lb., while other days we would only see a fish or two.

Not much reported off the bottom, a handful of various pargo species, bonito and even some out of season roosterfish caught near shallow rock
outcroppings, a couple of these over 40 lb.

A few sierra were starting to show up as well, as their season will just be getting underway.

Good fishing, Eric

October 18, 2020

We continue to see larger crowds of anglers arriving, as this is always one of the busiest times for sportfishing fleets in the Los Cabos area. Also
this is big tournament time, with the Los Cabos Billfish and Bisbee Offshore just finishing and this next week there will be the largest and
richest of all, the Bisbee’s Black and Blue event, followed early next month by the WON Tuna Jackpot. Overall this season will be remembered as
the year of unpresented numbers of changes and cancellations, all this due to the ongoing global coronavirus pandemic.

Weather patterns were again increasingly tropical, as mornings had started to be a little chilly, not anymore, as lows were back in the upper 70’s and
highs about 90 degrees, but combined with humidity factor the heat index was more like 99 degrees. This change all happened at the start of this
past week, as a tropical low pressure system developed off to the west of the Southern Peninsula. On Tuesday morning we received about one inch of
rain, more than what was originally forecast, though we did still have charters fishing that day, as weather front passed through by mid-morning.
The rest of the week has been clear with slight swells and little wind. Ocean water temperature actually warmed back up, as it had been on a
cooling trend, but now it was back into the 87 degree range.

Local fleets were mostly fishing the grounds from the Gordo Banks and north towards Vinorama, main bait source has been sardinas, with slabs of squid
also being used. Despite ideal ocean conditions most days, the all-around action was more hit or miss. Perhaps the sudden warmer water put the fish
off the bite, hard to say, also added pressure. Main catch we saw was for dorado, with the majority of these fish taken while trolling and they were
weighing in the 5 to 15 lb. range. Very few wahoo landed, but we did see a handful of them brought in, most of these hit on trolled Rapalas and were
in the 20 to 40 lb. class. As water temperature drops back near 80 degrees we expect to see much better activity on these sought after gamefish.

We did see a few nice yellowfin tuna brought to the scales, topping 130 lb. and a couple of cows over 200 lb. were taken during recent tournaments.
Most of the tuna we are seeing are more in the 50 to 70 lb. class, though even these became more elusive in recent days. Most of the tuna were taken
on sardinas, though larger baits were also used for chance at the cows. The Gordo Banks produced a few of the larger tuna, though more charters are
trying their luck on the Iman, San Luis and Vinorama grounds where action had been more consistent.

Off the bottom a handful of nice dogtooth snapper, cabrilla and amberjack were accounted for, though no consistent action to speak of and numbers
were limited. Billfish action was spread out, we saw more sailfish than anything else, but a few much larger blue and black marlin were in the
area, as we saw a few of them weighed in during recent tournaments, the largest being the 593 lb. black marlin taken by legendary La Playita
pangero Hugo Pino, who also caught the winning yellowfin tuna of 236 lb. during the same event.

Good fishing, Eric

October 11, 2020

We are now seeing more numbers of anglers arriving, as the start of the busy fall season has officially begun. Weather patterns are ideal, mornings
are starting to chill off slightly, had lows down to 73 degrees, though by mid-day temperatures are still quite warm, around 90 degrees. No storms
seen developing on the forecasts now and ocean conditions have remained very calm for the most part, though we did see some wind picking up later
in the day. Water temperature is still averaging about 85 degrees.

Anglers are mainly relying on sardinas for bait, which are found along the beach stretches near the Marina entrance, other options have been strips of
squid and ballyhoo. Larger baitfish such as chihuil and skipjack are being found on the fishing grounds, but have not been a guarantee for finding
them each morning. Local fleets this past week were fishing from off of Palmilla Point, Gordo Banks, La Fortuna, Iman, and as far north as
Vinorama. The all-around action was more sporadic this past week, changing daily as for where the better bite was found.

Mid-week there was good action found close to shore off of Palmilla Point for both wahoo and dorado, then as the word spread more boats showed up and
this action faded out. Wahoo to up to 40 lb. were reported and dorado to 25 lb., many charters limiting out. Later in the week the action slowed and
most boats were heading towards the north, yellowfin tuna were harder to find, though they were seen, getting them to bite was another story, of the
tuna found, they ranged from 10 to 70 lb., though larger fish to 150 lb. were hooked into, but lost. Anglers were doing well to land one or tuna in
their overall catch.

Not much bottom action, though a handful of dogtooth snapper were landed, earlier in the week mainly, also a few amberjack and grouper, but nothing
consistent now going off the bottom. Billfish were limited as well, a few sailfish were landed, as well as blue and black marlin hook ups, one
estimated 500 lb. black was lost after a battle from a super panga and one blue marlin or about 200 lb. landed. The problem is if the marlin strike
while anglers are using lighter leaders intended for line shy tuna, they did not stand much of a chance. Big marlin are in the area, just have to
put in some serious time specially targeting them.

Good fishing, Eric
