Big ones got away!!
Its was a slow pick as we headed up the Pacific side. The conditons were perfect with 84 degree water, 90 degrees air temp amd flat calm seas.We were tacking close to the beach between 50 and 200 feet trying to get the early a.m. Dorado bite but those golden grabbers sure were fickle. We had the 30 lb. setups out with feathers and sewed bait in the pattern and finally the reels sreamed. It was a double hhok up! Our angler was on it and at the same time deckie Marcos pitched a live bait back and HOOK UP! It was a triple header with those fish jumping and fighting for their lives. We lost one and got our dinner fish in the bag when Marcos pitched amother bait and hooked up again! We had that school right under the boat. Our anglers were on it and we got the other fish in in no time! We pitched some more baits but the school had boogied. We trolled up past Migriño and only raised a couple more so we decided to swing it out for the big game. We swapped out the tackle and got the 80s going with a nice Blue Marlin lure spread going off the transom. We managed to raise 2 Striped Marlin but couldnt get them to go. Big hooks were the issue but we had big Blues on our mind and thats the way it goes. As they say in Cabo “Ni modo” which means ” Too bad !”. So it was off to finish the day slow trolling rapalas and hoochies back down the beach. We broke out the 20 lb. gear and had quite a few bites but only managed a triggerfish and a small eyed jack. The fishing has slowed a bit inshore but it should pick back up. Hurricane Seymour is going to miss us so its going to be a great Oct! Im out again tomorrow so we’ll see if things improve! Adios from Cabo, Palomilla!! Yar !
