For those who love to go fishing and are thinking about visiting Los Cabos for a fishing vacation. Check out this fishing summary for February, based on the fishing report featured in the Cabo San Lucas Daily News blog.

In general the weather is feeling the first touches of spring, although still experiencing a variation in weather patterns. Although heavy rain showers are not predicted, scattered thundershowers are possible. However, average sunny days reaching 90ºC is still a great leap from the the cold freezing temperatures in Canada and the northern states of the USA right now.

Owing to the water temperature and winds coming from the north, the most consistent fishing grounds at present are around Punta Gorda, La Fortuna, Cardon and Iman. Sardines have also been found there in sufficient supplies.

The fishing report identified a good ratio per boat of yellowfin tuna between 15 to 30 pounds, despite it not even being yellowfin tuna season. Dorado (mahi mahi) continues in good numbers in the area with some yellowtail beginning to show up as well as pargo, bonito, triggerfish and white tuna. All this in addition to the sighting of humpback whales and the occasional orca.
