CURRENT CABO FISHING REPORT & FORECAST SUMMER ENDS BUT THE FISHING CONTINUES! SEPTEMBER 2015 CABO FISHING REPORT We've just entered into September and the official move from Summer to Fall fishing is on its way. We'll be seeing hot air temps matched with very warm waters for the next month and half and with it, some truly incredible fishing. October into early November is tournament fishing time in Southern Baja. The Bisbee events, the Los Cabos Offshore, the WON Tuna Jackpot... all of them take place over the course of a couple of weeks. So what's biting beside tuna? Here's the skinny.
Billfish... and not just striped marlin. Blue and black marlin are in the mix and have been for at least the past month. Sailfish are also showing up and in some pretty remarkable numbers. Just up the coast on the Pacific side the sailfish are so stacked up that some boats are catching and releasing 40+ in a single day. Closer to home port here in Cabo, multiple hook-ups on sails has been quite common. If you've never caught one, their speed and acrobatic jumps make for some fine photo ops!
BIG TUNA ARE HERE!

2015 SUMMER FISHING IN CABO SAN LUCAS
Marlin, sailfish and dorado have been rounding out our catches as late summer moves into early fall fishing. The waters warm and blue and fishing is off the charts!
CABO FALL TO WINTER 2015 FISHING FORECAST
A STRONG BITE WITH NO END IN SIGHT! It's been a strange year, but in a good way. We've seen fish that we normally don't expect to catch until late summer show up on the end of our lines in spring. And, once summer arrived, we started catching species like yellowfin tuna as one would expect, but not the normal football sized fish... these tuna were tipping the scales at 200+ months before they normally appear! Wahoo showed up earlier than their norm with some big models coming in late June into July. Fact is, wahoo really hit their stride late in the year so we expect that this could be a tremendous wahoo year as well.
Billfish are plentiful with black, blue and striped marlin leading the charge... a couple of "royal slams' have been caught.. that being one of each species on a single boat in a single day. Add in a great sailfish bite and we're on one heck of a roll here in Cabo.
So, what do we expect to see for the rest of the year? Loads of big fish with an ever-increasing number of dorado, wahoo and big, big yellowfin tuna - just in time for tourmanent season! With water temps holding in the mid to high 80's and a good amount of bait, we expect this year to be a banner for the Bisbee's, WON Tuna Jackpot and Los Cabos Billfish tourneys. If you're looking to get into a tournament and need a boat to charter, we still have a boat or two available as of September 1st... but act fast... they won't be available much longer.

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.
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!
