Default Late Cabo Report 12/23/12

Hi guys,
finally I can report something
Booked an 8 hour trip with Renegade Mike. I found him on thehulltruth and was really pleased. The communication was great and everything went smooth.
His boat (classic 31' Bertram) is docked right in front of the huge fashion mall in Cabo so parking is easy (1,5$ a day). He has a captain and a deckhand on boat but drives the boat himself too, so there is more than enough help on the boat. I chartered the boat for myself but there could be another 4 guys on the boat without getting crowded.
We left the marina at 6.30am and got some bait (10pc for 30$) and headed out.

The run was just about 5 miles and we started trolling. Unfortunately the weather wasnt as nice as the day before and the day after my fishing day and we had a solid 3 ft. chop. I dont mind waves anyway.
We spotted the first striped marlin after 15 min. behind the boat and got him in the spread but he didnt find the hook.... Good start.

We kept on trolling but didnt see any fish untill 9am. We spotted a striped marlin off the bow, chased him and hooked him with a live makerel. I fought the fish for a half hour on a Tiburon converted TLD 20. We got the fish on board for a quick photo. First striped marlin for me

Kept on trolling and spotted two Marlins and had both in the spread at the same time. Hooked one and I fought him for an hour. Turned out to be around 160lbs. Made an boatside release

After that I wanted some meat for dinner and we started to look for mahis. Caught a cow and a bull, both in the 15-20ish lbs range. Fished untill about 2pm and headed back to Cabo.
Entering the marina we got a nice visit from the resident sea lion that got our remaining bait. Made quiet a show

It was a great trip and I'm definitely coming back to Cabo. Not for Cabo itself but for the fishing.....
