DORADO, TUNA AND MIXED FISH SPECIES
FOR PALMILLA BAY SPORTFISHING BOATS
Jan. 29, 2005, Luis Duhart, Palmilla Bay Sportfishing, San Jose del Cabo, Baja California Sur, Mexico:
We had a good fishing week at San Jose del Cabo, but the weather was kind of funny. On Monday, San Jose del Cabo had rain in the morning, and Tuesday and Wednesday were windy. Now we have sunny skies and little wind, but it is changing every day.
We had Robert Noll and James Bleecker fishing at San Jose del Cabo for three days in the super panga Cristine with Capt. Gustavo. On their first day of fishing, they went to the Pacific side because the weather in the gulf was rainy. They got their bait of sardines at La Playita and went to the faro side, where they got two dorado (also mahi-mahi or dolphinfish) of 23 pounds, 6 pargos 18 pounds, and 21 sierras.
On their second day of fishing they went to gulf side all the way up to Vinorana and got 10 tuna 15 to 20 pounds, 2 dorados, 1 pargo, 1 gallo, and 6 sierras.
Also fishing at San Jose del Cabo with us was William Beal, who fished with Capt. Domingo on the super panga Rancho. He also went the first day to the Pacific and the second to Vinorama, and got 2 dorados 15 pounds and 17 sierras the first day, and 7 yellowfin tuna 20 pounds, and 4 dorados 15 pounds to 20 pounds the second day.
The fishing sea surface temperature at San Jose del Cabo is around 75 degrees, a bit windy but good for fishing. Some other San Jose del Cabo fishing boats got small marlins which they released, and lots of sierra on the Pacific side. The whales are here, and that of course is a show in itself.
