Baja Spring on the Horizon

Captain Jose Antonio “Pepe” De la Peña Castillo and mates Arturo Peralta and Ulises on the 62 ft Viking “Chasin Tail” had heard some rumors that a few swordfish were seen finning at the 1150 Spot during the past several days. After tacking back and forth searching for the swordfish tail and dorsal, often referred to as a “two-finner,” they finally spotted some commotion on the surface, creating a large patch of white water. Suddenly the fish appeared near the top, confirming it was a feeding thresher shark...More

How did we get to this fantastic number? Well, some boats headed to the Finger Banks, a little over 50 miles from Cabo and had non-stop, muscle-cramping, action-packed days that put them into double digits on marlin catches. “La Chingona,” a beautiful 46 ft Viking Billfish, led the pack this week, with 111 marlin in the 60 to 100 lb class released by anglers Adam Carlis, Charles Harris, and Kerry Stritt from Houston, Texas. As if this were not enough, they also caught 6 dorado. Definitely a fishing day they will never forget. On the same day, December 17th, “BBII,” another Viking Billfish, only a bit smaller at 37 ft, did a fantastic job of finding 61 marlin and 6 dorado for their guests, using a combination of live mackerel and frozen ballyhoo...Rebecca Ehrenberg, Pisces Sportfishing

On instructions from the Director General of FONMAR, Martín Inzunza Tamayo, the team from the Coordination of Management, Inspection and Surveillance in the Municipality of La Paz, headed by José Lizandro Olachea Burgoin, moved to the vicinity of Isla Cerralvo to carry out a joint surveillance operation with CONAPESCA personnel on December 1 and 2.

In the place, a boat with five people on board carrying out the underwater fishing activity was identified, which, upon noticing the presence of the authorities, fled, catching up with the FONMAR boat and requesting the CONAPESCA authorities to show the permits. corresponding.

The crew members could not prove that they had the corresponding permits, in addition to being scuba diving with oxygen tanks, which according to NOM-017-PESC-1994 must be done only with the lungs.

In the act, the federal officials of CONAPESCA carried out the retention of the boat, an outboard motor and fishing gear consisting of complete diving equipment, compressor, oxygen tank and diving hose.

FONMAR will continue to work in coordination with the surveillance authorities in response to the indications of the State Governor, Víctor Manuel Castro Cosío, to ensure the safeguarding and correct use of South California fishing resources.

Baja Easter was fishy

Typical Easter week—crowded beach, some wind, and few folks fishing. At the Lighthouse, Mark Rayor reported that some “Fly Guys” hooked and lost a yellowtail from the beach on a “fly.” However, it didn’t last long before it got away. Nevertheless, they did catch and release a nice-sized jack crevalle.
On the positive side, despite the large crowds, all of the weekend’s trash was bagged and picked up early in the week.

This past weekend, Lori Heath and I went on a 1.5-day trip on "Old Glory" with Captain Kley Williams, who had received information that there were signs of bluefin and yellowtail southwest of San Diego. So we headed to that zone looking for tuna and yellowtail paddies.

We had good weather and stopped several times in the dark and early morning on deep tuna marks. One angler got hit but did not connect. As the sun came up, we spotted jumping tuna and were excited to know we were in an area holding fish. Late morning we slid up to a kelp paddy, and it was "game on" for 7 to 12-pound yellowtail on flylined sardines, yoyo jigs, colt snipers, and surface irons!

At least 50 hectares of forest burned in the small town of Santiago, 55 kilometers north of San José del Cabo. A fire in a palm tree forest in Baja California Sur damaged or destroyed at least 40 homes on Friday night. The fire burned about six hectares of forest, damaging dozens of properties. The area’s characteristic high winds blew the flames out of control.

IGFA Announces 2022 Tommy Gifford Award Winners

One of the longest-tenured charter boat captains in Mexico's Baja East Cape region, Jesus Araiza held a remarkable front row seat to the evolution of Baja sportfishing stretching back to 1955. Not only was he one of the first "tag & release" captains in the East Cape area, but he was also awarded the High Skipper Award for "tag & release" 19 different years during his career.  His reputation as one of the top captains at the "Ranch" was legend, and he was so popular that he was often booked several seasons in advance. Jesus retired in 2008 from Hotel Buenavista Beach Resort, a neighboring hotel, leaving the day-to-day fishing to his sons. Today, his grandson, Tony, captains the "Retriever," a 66-foot Viking fishing out of Cabo San Lucas. Sadly, Araiza passed away at age 79 on April 8, 2021, quietly at his home in Los Barriles, BCS, surrounded by family members.

In addition, day after day, some of the boats returned with blue (marlin) flags, along with red (release) flags, strung from top to bottom on the outriggers.

In 2021, Pisces Sportfishing boats had 6,407 billfish released for the ENTIRE year.

There isn't a report on a specific location as being the best as too many places were finding fish over the last month.  Being light and energetic, I've been fortunate to fish in areas where no other boats or people had been for days.   Some places wore me out with skippies, triggers, or sierra.   But I loved it.

 I certainly haven't hired a captain to guide me to the big sport fish as there was no heavy tackle in the budget! Ha-ha.  I just had a Baja Catch book and a powerful will to catch a diverse number of fish to eat while camping with the "little PVC boat that could."

Almaco Jack Attack

“Gary, Have you ever tried to explain that amberjacks are extremely rare in Baja? And that all the fish being identified as amberjacks recently are really Almaco jacks?” texted Steve Crooke, Scientific Adviser for the Sportfishing Association of California (SAC) providing biological assistance for both State and Federally managed fisheries and who worked for the California Department of Fish and Game for 38 years.

Almaco jacks are much more robust, shorter, and stockier in their bodies, plus they feature a dark bar that extends through the eye to the base of the dorsal. The few amberjack Crooke has seen, traveled down the Mexican coast and to the south. He did count a few gill rakers to be sure.
Regardless of what you call them Amber or Almaco, they are biting now! prov

Cabo swordfish explode as 43-year-old Pisces fleet leads the Los Cabos fleet with record back-to-back “swordy” catches two days in a row — Thursday, Pisces 31’ Tracy Ann caught one, and Friday Pisces 35’ Bill Collector caught another two.

According to Jonathan Roldan, Tailhunter International, some of the best yellowtail fishing in 25 years continues at Bahia de Los Muertos. Not to be outdone, the Loreto area up to Bahia de Los Angeles, is also enjoying extraordinary yellowtail action according to locals.

Also, there have been outstanding grouper catches at Gonzaga Bay, and, a positive update from Cedros Island has been reported on the improvements to the airstrip while all the operations on the Island complete preparations for the upcoming season.
