Jan. 20, 2006, Mike Connolly, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico Sportfishing Report:
Some strong winds early in the week hampered Cabo San Lucas fishing somewhat.
The striped marlin bite has been up and down at the Golden Gate with some feeders and fish taken by slow trolling mackerel.
Around the 95 spot and southeastward, Cabo boats among the chosen ones released multiple fish.
It is not wide-open however, and it probably takes a couple of fishing days of hitting it hard to ensure a good marlin day.
Water temp is 69-70 on the beach, running about 74-plus offshore.
Early in the week there was a pretty fair wahoo bite by Cabo standards mostly from Gray Rock to San Jose, 5 to 10 miles out. The dead whale is gone now, but for those that found it south of Cabo there were good numbers of wahoo taken from it some up to 80 pounds.
Inshore fishing has been worthwhile for pargo for those that could locate the fast moving schools along the beach.
Keven Puhl, captain of the Success, has been fishing his inflatable between offshore trips and showing up with some nice yellowtail. Some of them looked to be 40 pounds.
The Gambler, with Capt. Billy Miyagawa, left Cabo San Lucas for California on Wednesday afternoon and located some 150-230 pound yellowfin tuna Thursday his first day up the coast.
