The bite has been epic all week and then came Hurricane Erick. It was a storm that threatened to take a path right through Cabo's back yard. In the end it hit cooler water, fell apart before getting here and turned into a non-event. Not enough rain to measure and not enough wind to cause concern.
Hurricane Cosme that skirted us 2 weeks ago did turn the water in shore upside down and made it cold and ugly green. There is a hard break at about 20 miles and game fish are piled up out there just waiting to put anglers to the test. Marlin, dorado, tuna and an occasional wahoo are all on the menu.
Dorado are not huge in numbers but are huge fish when you hang one.
84 year old Peter Gavallos still hittin it hard
That big tuna was landed with that little Accurate Boss reel. They are sweet.
Marlin are as thick as cockroaches
Putting on a show
This old guy keeps showing up on my camera roll. Looks like he might be starting to lose his hair?
Live bait is a little hard to come by in the mornings but easy to catch at the bouys. These "camisa's" pilot fish have been like candy
Simrad's touch screen technology is the bomb. Would hate to have to go back to the old stuff. Among many other features finding the temperature breaks are easy.
First billfish, a wonderful family memory.
