A couple hundred years ago, on the golden white beach of Playa Chileno, a band of pirates from Chile settled their base and used the bay to carry out their nefarious exploits. It is from these Chilean Pirates that Playa Chileno takes it's name. It is now one of the premiere spots to come snorkel, swim, and dive. Situated only steps away from the beach is the seven bedroom Villa Cielito, one of only a handful of villas in the Playa Chileno area. This villa features 8,000 sq feet of luxurious living, with a master bedroom with private jacuzzi, to king beds in every room, a gourmet kitchen, and satellite TV. But why would you want to stay indoors when you have private access to the golden white beach? The Villa itself features 6,000 sq feet of outdoor terrace space with an infinity pool, sauna, barbecue, kayaks, and most importantly, 2 hammocks to relax after a day spent on the beach, swimming and snorkeling in the crystal blue waters.
And we here at Cabo San Lucas Villas have a great deal for you. Book 4 days at Villa Cielito and we will give you a free day of fishing on a 42' Betram boat. So what do you say? Why not come spend that vacation at Villa Cielito and come see why the pirates made Playa Chileno their home.

With the fall season now officially upon us we can all look forward to more pleasant weather as well as increased crowds of visiting tourists. The change in climate can now be felt early in the morning, cooler air brought by breezes from the northwest and Pacific, though the daytime heat index is still reaching triple digits and the humidity is very high. There was a new storm that developed earlier this week, named Tropical Storm Nora, but at this time it is some 700 miles off to the east-southeast of the Southern Baja Peninsula and will not have any impact on land. Though it is late in the hurricane season there is still a chance that storm systems can generate over the prevailing warm waters, we will hope that they keep their distance, even though the southern region of Baja could use more rainfall, what we do not need is any devastation from highs winds and flooding. At this time ocean conditions are very comfortable, moderate swells and light breezes, water temperatures are ranging from 80 to 86 degrees, clean blue found close to shore.
Live sardinas continue to be found around the La Playita and Palmilla areas and have been the main bait being used now by charters. Though larger bolito and skipjack baits are schooling on the fishing grounds are being used for surface trolling, as well as drift fishing over the bottom structure.
Local fleets out of San Jose del Cabo are working areas from the Gordo Banks to Vinorama, finding mixed action for yellowfin tuna, dorado, dogtooth snapper, grouper, amberjack, barred pargo, bonito and skipjack. Black skipjack averaged 10 to 15 pounds have become a nuisance in the vicinity of San Luis Bank where the more consistent yellowfin action has also been concentrated, so anglers are having to contend with these aggressive feeders while trying to target the tuna and dorado, most of the yellowfin that are being accounted for have been in the 15 to 60 pound class, though there are definitely some cow sized gorilla yellowfin tuna in the area, which was proved on Tuesday by a group of four local La Playita anglers. These commercial pangeros who normally supply baitfish for tourist charters and then go bottom fishing decided to take a day from the normal routine and go fishing themselves. They headed for the Inner Gordo Bank where they caught a pair of skipjack and began slow trolling towards the southern drop off, it was not long before they had a massive double strike, one fish did not take the bait deep enough to become hooked, but the other fish was hooked solid and began peeling the 60 pound line off of the older Peen Senator reel like a freight train, the fire drill was on and the crew began chasing the fish down in order to keep from becoming spooled. They slowly began to make some headway in the tug of war, taking turns on the rods, thankful for their choice of 300 pound mono leader. Apparently the fish became tailed wrapped before diving towards the depths, the group figured they had a larger sized tuna on the line since no fish had broke the surface after the initial strike and now they just felt heavy brute force weight. Of course they had no idea on how big this monster actually was, after two and a half hours of battling they found out, as they gaffed and hauled into the 22 ft. panga this world record class specimen of a yellowfin tuna. Back at the dock the fish was weighed in on a certified digital scale at 357 pounds, this turns out to be only 31 pounds shy of the all time official IGFA world record. Definitely a La Playita/Puerto Los Cabos record and it could be a difficult one to break for some time. The news of this yellowfin tuna being found in local waters should create major interest with anglers involved in or considering entering the upcoming WON Tuna Jackpot event.
Drift fishing and dropping various whole and cut baits on the rock structure around the San Luis area has produced quality cabrilla, barred pargo, amberjack and dog snapper this past week, some of the specimens weighing in the 40 to 70 pound category. Even the barred pargo were pushing 20 pounds and leopard grouper to 25 pounds were accounted for, bolito or cut skipjack were the preferred baits.
Dorado were found throughout the region, though the majority were smaller sized schoolies under 15 pounds, only a scattering of larger bulls were reported. Wahoo were in the area, as they occasionally could be seen swimming through the chum lines, though only a handful were hooked into, some of them on the traditional wahoo type trolling lures and others on fly lined sardinas, straight on monofilament.
The combined panga fleets launching out of La Playita/Puerto Los Cabos Marina sent out approximately 40 charters for the past week, with anglers reporting a fish count of:
1 black marlin, 5 sailfish, 11 wahoo, 78 yellowfin tuna, 94 dorado, 165 black skipjack,
18 bonito, 18 cabrilla, 8 grouper, 12 amberjack, 26 barred pargo, 13 dogtooth snapper,
5 rainbow runners and 15 huachinango.
Good fishing, Eric

Good news Cabo San Lucas. According to the National Hurricane Center you are no longer in the direct path of Hurricane Jimena. But let's not take down those boards and break out the Tequila just yet. The Mexican government continues to keep a hurricane warning in effect. Expect rainfall in the vaccinates of 5 to 10 inches, coastal flooding, and winds up to 145 mph. This will be a tough storm, and now that the airport in Cabo is officially closed, it's time to hunker down and break out that old game of Yahtzee. But don't fear, according to several managers of the local resorts, their hotels and accommodations are built to withstand the hurricanes. So this will definitely be one for your travel journals, "I survived Hurrican Jimena", one of the biggest storms to have ever hit Baja California.
Want more information? Check out the National Hurricane Center's hurricane Jimena report.
