Mexico – Cabo 12

I just wanted to let you know that everything went perfectly for our holiday in Cabo San Lucas last week. The flights were all on time, the hotel (Los Milagros) was great, comfortable rooms with effective air-conditioning (so we slept well despite the heat), the owner Sandra was very helpful and pleasant. The Pices guys were ready for us (although they wanted us to be there at 6.30am rather than 7.00 am) and the fishing was spectacular. On the blue water trips we went out to Golden Gate on Adriana 1 each time. On the first session, first cast my son James caught a striped marlin about 140 lbs which took him 45 minutes to bring in. This immediately took the pressure off and allowed us to relax and enjoy the fishing. I caught one about 130 lb about 2 hours later. On the inshore trip we had great fun with dorado (also on the blue water trips) and Rooster fish. The next deep water trip was the highlight of the week for me as I caught my dream fish, a sailfish estimated at 120 lb. Later in the week we caught another striped marlin around 130 lb. So in total over the week (we squeezed in another inshore trip) we had the 4 billfish, 15 dorado (best about 25 lb), 7 roosterfish (amazing on light tackle) to 15-18 lb, a squid about 50lb (there must have been hundreds of these as we hooked them as soon as we fished on the bottom or were feathering for mackerel), plus some small bonitos. A real bonus were the numbers of whales that were around, so at one point we counted 10 in our vicinity and huge pods of porpoises and dolphins, who were chasing tuna we think (looking at the flags on the returning boats only a few of these were caught last week).

So many thanks to you and Jo for arranging this brilliant holiday for us. We are already thinking about next year!

Best wishes
