Whale Watch Season Begins

The season’s opening trip was terrific in Laguna Ojo de Liebre! There were many whale moms and babies and mating trios to see. Of course, they were still a bit shy, but we saw a bit of everything – breaching, spy hopping, courtship, and those cute little newborns! I’d say we saw about 30 whales in front of our camp.

CRAZY MARLIN WEEK IN CABO

Marlin bite picked way up compared to last week. We had 141 Marlin Released total for the fleet, with the Top boats, such as Pisces 37’ BBII releasing 23 Billfish in the week. Their best day they went 10 for 14 on Striped Marlin. Pisces 35’ Bill Collector 2 also did well in the week with 19 Released; going 7 for 9 on their best day. Only one Dorado caught and a few Skipjack Tuna and still a few good inshore catches of Sierra Mackerel, Grouper, Snapper, Ladyfish, Bonita, Triggerfish, etc….Rebecca Ehrenberg

Big Fish-Huge Checks

Meanwhile, at the Pisces dock today… a COW TUNA landed by badass Angler Ann Anderson, who fought this fish for 3 hours and 20 minutes before getting it to the Pisces 62-foot Viking “Chasin’ Tail,” PLUS, the team, “Chasin’ Tail” also landed another EIGHT Tuna and Dorado!!

“COPA BAJA CALIFORNIA SPORTFISHING” Results

There was encouraging news that the yellowfin tuna were biting better the last few days – drift-fishing with strips of squid on the Iman Bank was the most successful. We also saw tuna ranging from 10 to 90-pounds, with an average of 20 to 50-pounds. A couple of charters caught up to 5 fish each, though overall numbers were not high; you had to be patient and be at the right spot when the bite was on. Again, the best action was found early in the morning.

Cabo Billfish & Dorado On-Fire

Anglers saw great action for dorado. Limits were common, with many releases scattered throughout the region. However, small to medium-sized fish were being found closer to shore, and some larger specimens were on the offshore grounds where there were marlin and sailfish. These fish were readily caught with lures and various bait.
Bait supplies consisted of ballyhoo, mullet, slabs of squid, and the sardina also rebounded recently, schooling close to shore near the marina jetties.
Good Fishing…Eric Brictson, Gordo Banks Pangas   

4th BAJA CALIFORNIA CUP SOON

Remember this kid!? After landing his first dorado for his birthday at 4 years old, for his recent 6th birthday, he landed this 47-Pound Bull! This is a day Mischa (and mom) will never forget! So get out there and TAKE YOUR KIDS FISHING (oh yeah, dogs are welcome, too)!

The Copa Baja California 3rd round

A 50-pound dorado, yellowfin tuna, and a released marlin … what more could you ask for? Pisces 31′ Rebecca got it done yesterday for angler Joe Starkey and friends from Texas! A big shoutout to Captain JR, who has been with Pisces for nearly 25 years! …Pisces Sportfishing Fleet
