I'm going to be in Cabo in February and would like to get out fishing for a day or two. I'm not real big into the deep sea marlin type adventures where you may only hook up with one fish per day. I'd rather stay busy with a reef type \ light tackle excursion. We did a trip to Key West in February this year fishing the flats and it was a blast. Looking for something similar to this. Does anyone have any suggestions?

We fished there last year and had a blast. We went for Yellowfin Tuna and had so much luck we spent the afternoon fishing Marlin (caught 2 of them). My parents also fished right off the rocks for Redfish. What I'm saying is that most charters will be willing to fish what ever you want. I have a couple names if you want.

BGP; Cabo is a great fishing location, but the nearshore/inshore fishing isn't what put it on the map. And cold feb water isn't going to help, sorry. There might be yellowfin around, but the bite could be quite some distance from Cabo. If you're renting a car, you might want to try the panga fleet up at La Playita, back toward the airport. Most of the captains know whats biting, and will steer you in the right direction. Just don't expect to fish for something thats not there; Cabo waters vary a lot from year to year, and if the bite isn't on for one species, try for whatever is biting at the time. Feb can be a great month for marlin!:)

Even though you don't want to fish for Marlin, I'd still suggest it. You never know, maybe you'll hook up with one. When I was down there, we took a charter Marlin fishing. Just be sure to let the captain know you want to catch Dorado (Mahi Mahi) too...they'll pick up some bait for this. If you get into Dorado, you'll have a blast! And the best part is, you get to keep 'em. We ate plenty while we were down there and also had a bunch to bring back with us.

I also spent a lot of time shore fishing too. We got a few, but that was nothing compared to the fun of the charter.

I booked with Minerva's when I was down there. The charter was excellent, but I'm sure there are many other great charter's there as well. The December time frame isn't the best for fishing...

If you want to try shore fishing for rooster fish, sierra, etc., you don't need a license...at least I didn't a few years ago.

Hopefully Hurricane Felix won't mess too many things up.

Was down in the Bahamas and it wasn't anything like they showed online. 3 hurricanes in 14 months.

Good luck fishing.

Another question. How is the tide down there? What I mean is, where you fish for marlin does it get real rough? I'm ok with it but my wife will be miserable. Do they take you off shore a ways where the seas could be rough or do they fish inland more?

BGP; no tidal influence; the offshore fishing can be anywhere from a few miles out to as much as a 2 hour boat ride. Talking Dec thru march, Cabo waters are pretty cold; not much fishing close in, so expect a ride of some length. You can check the day (or 2) before and see where the bite has been and get a good idea. Make the call morning of as to whether your wife wants to go out. But if the bite is way out and you ask the capt to stay close, don't expect much. I've fished with Pisces fleet for a few years now, they are a good outfit and communicate well. A few other good choices are Redrum, El Budster, Cabo Magic, Marlin Masters, to name a few. I'll be down Oct 10-17 and am fishing marlin masters and redrum in a small fun tournament with 25 guys or so, will report back. If you contact Pisces, tell them Terry from MN suggested them:) Where are you staying? If you're not after beachfront, I can suggest several in town hotels that are clean, safe, and moderatly priced. Eyes; Dec can be a very good marlin time, you can check several sources online and get accurate, up to date reports shortly before you go and see if the bite is on. I'd just book a day anyway:) I've had a couple very good days in early janruary, including a 5 marlin day a couple years ago, so don't put too much stock in any fishing calenders you see. You can check a dozen of em' on different websites and find quite different info. Go to Mexfish.com for weekly reports for Cabo, and the whole pacific coast of Mexico.

      I live on the north side of Cass on the Pughole. We had 30 inches of ice out in front of my dock yesterday. Pughole is the flowage between Kitchie and Cass. I'm 200 yards off Cass and the current is pretty strong there. Top few inches was pretty mushy. Nothing happening as far as fish yet. But they are coming. Jumbos move in soon. Also seen a truck out off of Star Island on Monday evening. I imagine they have more ice out on the main lake than I have. I'm for sure going to be out ice fishing through next week at my place. Ice hasn't even begun to pull from shore at my place.

      Hey there DUCKHTR . No need for a guide to hunt divers on Leech or Big Winnie . Your spots that you hunted early season on Leech will also be good spots for later season . I don't duck hunt anymore , but I used to hunt a lot on Winnie , mostly all my hunting there was on the north end Third River Flowage . Travel north from Deer River up Hwy 46 to the sign that directs you to turn left , then travel west on that gravel road for about 10-12 miles to the 3rd river boat landing . You should have no problem launching your boat there . From the landing outward is a lot of tall reeds on both sides of you  , this flowage widens out as you go farther out ,and depending on your wind direction on the day of your hunt , you can just pick and choose a spot  , all the way out , and down to Mallard Point where it really opens up to big water on Winnie . You will need to buy up 3-4 dozen Bluebill decoys , and also use your Mallard decoys you must already have . We used to have great shoots in that area of the lake . In the dark of the morning when your heading out you may have other hunters shine a flashlight your way , they are just letting you know that they are already set up in that spot , don't worry , there is plenty of room for many different hunting groups in the flowage . Once you get a few hunts below your belt , you will then have a better understanding of some of your favorite spots to set up ..  I had one particular spot we used to call the "Meat Market" because we used to kill so many ducks there in that spot . Just put out your decoys in the spot you choose , and then  pull your boat into the reeds parallel to the water , wait for legal shooting hrs , and have at it . From my recollection the Bills would start to trickle down from the north around the 20th or so of Oct .. I I hope this helps you out somewhat .

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.
