This week started as last week ended with great weather and tough fishing. Off shore we found 77 degree blue water loaded with game fish but they just wouldn't cooperate. As the week went on we experienced a couple of windy days and marlin seemed to disappear and none of the fleet boats were able to find the fish. It was very puzzling as normally marlin are easy to spot in the chop and become more aggressive in windy weather.
Well, after a couple of days the wind died, the current off shore changed direction, water temp dropped, it turned off color and the fish popped. It bewilders me how adverse conditions could make fishing better but all of a sudden the marlin have turned on and most boats are returning flying multiple flags.
Many fish are plugged with squid and spitting it up during battle. Our friend Andrew Hughes shared some photos of the squid that he snapped yesterday that I have posted below.
In shore has improved as well. I am starting to see more birds working the shore line and roosters and jacks crashing bait.
Early in the week marlin strutted their stuff but wouldn't bite
Finally! The bite has turned around
We ran across the largest pod of orcas I have ever encountered. It was the first time I have ever seen 3 males in one group. Strange? We didn't see any sea lions that day
Squid floating in the afternoon
This shot was taken about a mile from the Cabo Riviera Marina entrance
Buena Vista resident Andrew Hughes had some luck in shore.
Am I seeing double?? Our neighbor Frank Fink has brought a sister ship to Jen Wren III to Buena Vista. This is a welcome addition to help raise the bar and provide better service for guests visiting the East Cape.
