Epic 1st Day of the Los Cabos Billfish Tournament!

Pisces 35’ Bill Collector 2 took Day One Wahoo with a 38.9 Lbs for our Wahoo King Captain Gil Castro and angler Scott Kindseth. Pisces 32’ Bill Collector had the only Tuna weighed of the tourney by angler Mitch M , Captained by Juan Lopez. 28 pounds was all they needed to take 1st Place. Boat El Torito took the Dorado Division with a 37 pounder. Unfortunately because of storm approaching Cabo tomorrow’s fishing is postponed and we will see if fishing resumes for Thursday.

FIVE HUNDRED AND THIRTY-FIVE DORADO caught in this last week for the fleet! Top boats, like Pisces 42′ Sea Señora had 28 dorado were caught in one day, plus marlin were released and Pisces 45′ Chasin Tail, for example, had 24 dorado, marlin, and sailfish released too. We are proud to respect catch limits and sizes on all these mahi-mahi, keeping only what we must, releasing well over 300 of these fish, and releasing all billfish caught this week too. We also had a few nice-grade tuna of around 70- to 80-pounds, and we even released blue marlin. For those preferring to remain closer to shore, bonito, sierra, jack crevalle, and a few roosterfish provide surface action.
Pisces 35′ Valerie with Captain Roberto Sandez, aka “El Jefe,” were killing it this week. This boat had a 100% Catch Success Rate in five days of fishing. They had five billfish released, including a 250-pound blue marlin, a striped marlin, and a sailfish. Plus, 14 dorado, 25 yellowfin tuna (20 to 60-pounds each), and this nice wahoo yesterday. No wonder El Jefe is considered one of the “best in the business” and has been a Captain with Pisces for 33 years.
Category 2, “Olaf,” landed near San Jose del Cabo at 10:00 p.m. Thursday with 100 mph winds, according to the U.S.-based National Hurricane Center (NHC). The Comisión Federal de Electricidad (CFE) said that Olaf’s heavy rains and winds in the state of Baja California Sur affected 205,866 users.
The cow-sized yellowfin tuna were in the count. The charter fleet and private boats found some smaller yellowfin tuna a bit farther offshore, leading into September, which shaped up to be a hot month for fishing!
Fishing days aboard Pisces 46′ La Chingona: Big bull mahi-mahi and blue marlin released, too…Rebecca Ehrenberg, Pisces Sportfishing Fleet.
The turtle season is underway and the dedicated Araiza brothers have already collected approximately 14,000 baby turtle eggs from the 140 nests they have uncovered! And it’s only mid-August.
