Awesome pics guys. I can’t wait for my trip in mid July. Hopefully I get into a nice rooster while I’m there for a week. Staying at the Pueblo Bonita sunset resort.

Nice too! Both are good eating for sure! Mainland Mexico Pacific Coast this year as well?

 

I am heading to Cabo soon and then to the other spot 1.5 to 2 mo later!

Wow!!

Surf Fish Dan congratulations for a very nice job. 

 

I fish for the same species on mainland Mexico. Never got that lucky with so many nice specimens in a short timeline like you guys accomplished.

Fishing Block Island till the winter. It was too cold in Cabo and very windy this year. Lost few fish as well swimming with my lures stuck in their mouth. Temp below 70 during the first week of June.  63 in the mornings. Good luck in both trips..

How hot is Cabo, normally, during the peak summer roosterfish season? 

 

I didn't realize that Sierra mackerel get that big.

Peak for surf fishing roosters in Cabo seems to be May thru July with (it seems) mid June to end of June (though I have caught them in December too!) based on my success (and lack of) and my friends who fish their as well. Hot is relative..I find it to be comfortable compared to mainland Mexico during peak season rooster fishing. I been fishing there every year from late June to early July for the last 25 years and it averages mid 80's on the pacific side and 90's in town, wind make a difference. Had a couple years with some humidity but never nearly as humid as the mainland! I also have had some very cool years due to the wind on the pacific side. Never a bad time in Cabo as long as you are fishin!!

Apparently the (Pacific) cubera snappers there aren't the same as the ones around Florida.  Another name is pargo, I remember seeing Offshore Adventure shows with the Ocearch shark guy (Chris Fischer) catching/spearing them.
