BILLFISH: This week the most abundant species of billfish were striped marlin, with blues coming in second, and a spattering of sailfish throughout. We had an excellent catch success rate, with 96 percent of boats being successful and only two boats getting skunked. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect, warm water and clear skies, accompanied by calm seas and plenty of fish. This really was an excellent showcase of the outstanding world class fishing destination that Cabo is. The Pisces Andrea, captained by Orlando Murillo and deckhand Silvestre headed out to the 95 Spot to land their billfish. Taking out a group of anglers from Florida, they ended up catching and releasing a sailfish of around 85lb and a blue marlin of around 130lb; all on a half-day trip. The Pisces Tracy Ann captained by Julio Castro took out a group of anglers from California, landing a perfect example of the top species for this week. They caught and released a striped marlin, and landed a dorado, a yellowfin tuna and a 283lb blue marlin, that took skipjack as bait.
