CURRENT CABO FISHING REPORT & FORECAST SUMMER MOVES ON BUT THE FISHING IS STILL GREAT!! October/November 2013 FISHING REPORT During the last week of October, Gordon Stevenson joined us for 6 days of fishing and got the surprise & catch of a lifetime on October 26th with Captain Richard aboard the Don Valerio. They were 20 miles straight out of the harbor running a school of porpoise looking for tuna and had an estimated #650 blue marlin take a cedar plug! The father and son team of Lou and Dean Morace had a great day at the end of October with a SUPER SLAM of Black, Blue, and Striped Marlin to go along with a mess of Dorado, some nice Wahoo, football size Yellowfin Tuna plus some tasty Sierra Mackerel and Triggerfish. Heck of a day, gents!! They fished aboard the Bad Market with Captain Andres.
CAPTAIN ANDRES PART OF LOS CABOS BILLFISH WINNING TEAM! Capt. Ramon Hiram Montaño, mate Jamie Gonzales from Cabo San Lucas, and angler-owner Tom Lansing of Phoenix, Arizona had Captain Andres join aboard Extraction winning $295,425 with a 625LB Blue Marlin.

CABO FALL TO WINTER 2013 FISHING FORECAST
A STRONG BITE WITH NO END IN SIGHT! We can't say enough about Fall and Winter fishing in Cabo San Lucas. Air temps become very comfortable with daytime highs in the 80's cooling to the 60's at night. The threat of storms is pretty much gone so we don't expect to see much in the way of adverse weather. Water temps will cool slowly but plenty of 80+ degree water will still be found and temp breaks will actually get a bit easier to locate. All those things combine to make for excellent end of the year fishing.
We're still getting good shots at Blue and Black marlin but that will begin to fade a bit come late January. What won't fade much is the Striped Marlin bite. We've seen years where January was the monster month for high-numbers of Striped marlin releases and this could be another one of those banner years.
Tuna should be making appearances in larger numbers with larger models coming and that's why the Western Outdoor News (WON) Tuna Jackpot tournament chooses this time of year to hold their event. WON's tourney runs from November 6th to the 9th and our friend Pat McDonell, who runs the show, has reported more than 112 teams signed up so this looks to be the biggest one yet.
To round things out, we'll still be getting Wahoo and Dorado action, then before you know it, the Winter yellowtail bite should start up as well. Bottom line.... there's never a bad time to come fishing in Cabo!

BIG DORADO SWIM IN OUR WATERS!
Just ask our good friend and client, Robert Kottle of Virginia Beach, Virginia. Here he is hoisting a tackle busting bull dorado on a recent trip with Pochos. If you like your dorado big, Cabo is the place to come find them!
AND SO DO BIG YELLOWFIN TUNA!
Another regular on Pochos boats is this South African gent that has his own mega-yacht but still comes fishing with us with his Captain. He prefers to remain anonymous to keep the paparazzi from scaring off the fish!
Dean Tinson from the United Kingdom fishes with us every year and usually spends six days on the water. Here he is with a scrappy roosterfish. The roosterfish bite has been very good up near San Jose del Cabo as of the second week of March, 2013.
Chris Urban out of Columbia, Connecticut holds up one of many roosterfish being caught along the shore just past the breakers. This one was caught February 20th, 2013 along with some hefty yellowtail during Chris's charter. You can see a photo of one of his yellowtail on our HOME page in the right hand column.
CABO FISHING CHART
To the right you'll find a handy reference chart of peak times of the year to fish southern Baja for specific species. While the chart accurately depicts typical catches and 'best times' of the year, the fishery here is so varied, there really isn't a bad time of year to go fishing in Cabo.
Use the chart as a guide, but remember that just about anything can show up on the business end of your line anytime of the year. The key is to be prepared for opportunities that present themselves. Many big marlin show up at times of the year that aren't considered the right times. With a full compliment of tackle, from light to 80W set-ups, Pochos is prepared for anything, all the time!
