Billfish: Start to get the blue, black marlin and sail fish they are already in all the areas out by the warm ocean currents, since last week we had very good reports and blue marlin catches on average around 4 per week 275lbs of weight with the exception of a blue marlin of 475 lbs.
Some black marlin has been reported by our boats in the fishing grounds known as Golden Gate and the 11.50 spot. 27 July our good friends O'Neal family went fishing in the Ursula IV boat, that day was doing a lot of wind but the purpose was to find a Roosterfish to Steve and then go offshore to look for a Marlin his father in low, since in the last two attempts were not lucky that day we sailed northwest into the wind to a place called San Jaime Bank and about 11 miles out we saw Dorado Mahi-mahi and catch 2, one small about 20lbs and other medium 30 pounds, Miguel the assistant prepare a bait to troll and switch in less than 20 minutes a sailfish, came and pulled the bait , Mr. O'Neal fought about 25 minutes with the Sailfish and we raise it for a quick photo and release it.
Then we went to the east into the wind where we had other sightings and pulled another sailfish but we lost
On July 29 Mr. Bryan Swiniarski and his friends went fishing and had a great day catching a Marlin 310 lbs and 4 Yellow fin tuna, on the same day Greg Grof on board Ursula IV caught and released two sailfish about 75 lbs , 2 Dorados (Mahi-Mahi) around 45 lbs.
We hope to have a great season of fishing for big blues.
Many schools Dorado (Mahi-Mahi) and tuna.
OTHER SPECIES: Although the rains have not come to Cabo San Lucas which benefits the group of species such as Dorado, Wahoo and Yellow fin Tuna and small fish that serve as food for them, as the rains are sometimes flowing streams and small pieces of wood brings organic matter which attracts these species.
The reports of our boats have been more than excellent reaching an average of 87% of all fishing trips these species of yellowfin tuna have been very close to the coast accompanied by dolphins with large schools of tuna by bringing some copies of respectable size, the locations of sightings have been from the old lighthouse and the hill of Cabo San Lucas about 4 to 8 miles from the coast.
Also fishing for Dorado has not been the exception to find Dorado’s out in front of the entire coastline and no more than 2 to 5 miles away, have been constant reports of excellent size and weighing about 20 to 55 pounds.
On July 21, our friend Mr. Steve O'Neal and his children and father went out fishing one more time aboard the good Ursula IV capturing two Dorado’sand 20 lbs and 35 lbs.
On July 26th Mr. Campanela went fishing aboard Ursula IV and caught 7 Yellowfin Tuna and 4 Dorados right in front of the lighthouse about 10 miles out of the coast.
August 01st the family of the state of Mexico Mr. Arturo Cortez Aboard Ursula IV had an excellent day of fishing catching a yellowfin tuna of 224 lbs fighting around 2 hours and 15 minutes definitely a good experience.
