Fishes like split fins, surf-perches, and some sharks instead carry and give birth to live young. Scientists have also discovered that the embryos of some of these fishes actually consume each other in the womb. How’s that for creepy fish facts?
The Sea Anemone looks like a flower, but it’s actually a carnivorous animal that eats small fish and shrimp.
Fishes hear with both their ears and their skeletons, sensing the vibrations of sound in the water.
Scientists even suspect that sharks can clearly hear sounds from over 3 km away.

Built-in Radar Many species of fish have a powerful sense organ called the lateral line running across their body. It can detect motion in the water, allowing them to hunt prey, avoid predators, and navigate in the dark.

fishing tips and tricks
 Aug 5, 2003; 10:29PM - Bimini Twist
 Category:  Knots to use
 Author Name:  Steve vonBrandt/S&K Guide Service
Bimini Twist Tip&Trick Description 1: Bimini Twist
Used primarily for offshore trolling and double-line leaders. A Bimini twist creates a long loop of line which is stronger than the the line itself. A Bimini twist is a simple method of doubling your fishing line in order to prevent chafing or to create the necessary loop in order to attach a wind-on leader. A short Bimini twist (up to five feet) can easily be accomplished by one person. To tie a Bimini twist longer than five feet takes two people, although it could be done alone with a lot of practice. This knot is a 100% knot, meaning, it retains 100% or the original strength of the line being used.


1. Measure a little more than twice the length you will want for the double-line. Bring end back to standing line and hold together. Rotate end of loop 18 - 23 times, by twisting it.
2. Slowly spread the loop to slide twists together about 10' below tag end. You want to spread the lines evenly, keeping the same angle on each side, so they do not wrap on top on one another. Step both feet through loop and bring it up around knees so pressure can be placed on column of twists by spreading knees your apart. It is easiest to learn the knot with two people so one person can hold and spread the lines while the other person ties the knot. Bimini twists over 5 feet long really need two people to tie properly, unless you have 8' legs!
3. With twists now snug together, hold standing line in one hand with tension just slightly off the vertical position. With other hand, move tag end to position at right angle to twists. Keeping tension on loop with knees, gradually ease tension of tag end so it will roll over the column of twists, beginning just below the upper twist. (as the line continues to spread apart the tag end will wrap back down over top of the twists.)
4. Spread legs apart slowly to maintain pressure on loop. Steer tag end into a tight spiral coil as it continues to roll over the twisted line. It take a practice, but avoid the twists jumping back over top. The twists should lay side by side and coil down nicely as shown to the right.
5. When spiral of tag end has rolled over column of twists, continue keeping knee pressure on loop and pinch the end of knot to keep it from unraveling. Put a finger in crotch of line where loop joins knot to prevent slippage of last turn. Now make a simple half-hitch with tag end around nearest leg of loop and pull up tight.
6. With half-hitch holding knot, release knee pressure but keep loop stretched. Using remaining tag end, take half-hitch around both legs of loop, but do not pll tight.
7. Make 2-3 more turns with the tag end around both legs of the loop, winding inside the bend of line formed by the loose half-hitch and toward the knot. Pull tag end slowly, forcing the loops to form in a spiral.
8. Moisten spirals and pull loops tight against main knot. Leave about 1/4' of a tag end when trimming. Keep practicing, it takes some time.

Cabo Fish Report
Sept.25-Oct. 1, 2006

WEATHER: What a nice change this week! We had mostly sunny skies with our daytime temperatures in the mid to high 90’s and the night time lows in the low 80’s to mid 70’s, just about as perfect as you could get. The only downside was that with the slight lowering in temps was an increase in the humidity. This was not unexpected, just unwanted as every little exertion resulted in some sweat.
WATER: Both sides of the Cape had wonderful water conditions this week with surface conditions smooth and comfortable. On the Pacific side we did have late afternoon winds that resulted in occasional choppy conditions, but with the swells at only 2-3 feet there were no safety problems, just an occasional case of seasickness. On the Cortez side of the Cape it was almost glassy for most of the week. On the Cortez side we had a band of very warm water come in and during the middle of the week we saw water temperatures to 90 degrees in a band that ran across the outer Gorda Bank coming from the East and running from there to within 5 miles of the coast toward the Cape. On the Pacific side the water was 85-86 degrees out just past the San Jaime and Golden Gate Banks and a few degrees cooler out past both of those. There was 83-degree water 15 miles to the southwest of the cape and there was a defined temperature break, but no color change in the area.
BAIT: Caballito in the larger sizes were readily available this week at the normal $2 per bait, and for boats that went up the Cortez side there were Sardinas available off of La Playita at $20 a bucket.
FISHING:
BILLFISH: I heard from a few boats that there was a wide open bite on Striped Marlin happening up toward the Mag Bay area this week, but that is unconfirmed by anyone locally, it has all been reported over the radio. Closer to home the bite on Striped Marlin has been good close in to shore on the Pacific side; most of the action has been between the lighthouse and the Pescadaro area within 3 miles of the beach. Farther offshore there has been Blue Marlin and an occasional Black Marlin popping up in the spreads. I had a chance to fish all day on Saturday and we released an estimated #350 Blue several miles to the northwest of the Golden Gate Bank and an estimated #200 Blue just outside of the Margaretville area while working some Porpoise.
YELLOWFIN TUNA: It appears that the Yellowfin Tuna that were hanging around the Punta Gorda area have moved on because while boats were still going to the area in hope of great catch’s the bite dropped dramatically. Fish were still caught but the numbers were down by a major amount. There was an occasional good bite amongst the Porpoise on the Pacific side with one notable spot happening just to the east of the San Jaime on Wednesday of this week. Most of the fish were in the 35-pound range but there were fish to 95 pounds caught on the troll. The area between the San Jaime and the Golden Gate had occasional pods of porpoise showing but they only occasional had Tuna with them.
DORADO: Once again Dorado were the fish of the week as almost every boat that went to look for them got into some action. Not all of the fish were large and I did see a lot of “dinks” brought in, some as small as 4 pounds, almost enough to make me cry. Fortunately there were plenty of fish in the 12-30 pound range to keep people happy. Most of this action was taking place just off the beach in less than 200 feet of water on the Pacific side of the Cape. The area off of the ledge at the lighthouse was exceptional last week with the best results being posted by boats drifting with cut bait and smaller live baits. Please try and remember that there is a five fish per person limit per day, and that only two of these fish may be Dorado. Catching and keeping 24 Dorado for two anglers is a violation of the fishing regulations and could result in a hefty fine for the boat owners and the crew on board.
WAHOO: There were a few Wahoo this week and they were mostly caught close to the beach on the Pacific side by anglers targeting Dorado. The smallest I heard of (and got a piece of) was 45 pounds but there were reports of fish to 75 pounds.
INSHORE: There were still a few Roosterfish being reported this week but with there being so many Dorado close in it was hard to get the Captains of the Pangas to target anything else.
NOTES: Tied my own best record on the golf course today and didn’t have to pay for the beer, caught and release two Blue Marlin yesterday and also had a great time at a friends birthday party last night. Yes, it’s been a nice week. With that in mind I just downloaded Carlos Santana on the album “Superstition to my i-pod this morning, I had forgotten how well he rocks on most of the cuts! Until next week, tight lines!
