FishTrack's Cabo and Southern Baja Fishing Chart includes Cloudfree Sea Surface Temperature images as well as the latest Sea Surface Temperature satellite images to help offshore anglers find fish faster. Download the FishTrack app now to view the latest Cabo and Southern Baja Sea Surface Temperature (SST) Imagery.
Pelagic species including Tuna, Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, and Mahi, can be found in various ranges of water temperatures, gravitating to temperature breaks where bodies ofcooler water meet warmer water which creates conditions of upwelling to start the marine food chain. Studying Sea Surface Temperatures (SST) near Cabo and Southern Baja before heading offshore gives any serious angler the deciding upper hand.
FishTrack’s Cloudfree SST imagery - produced using data from collective satellite SST sources and aided by computer modeling to fill in areas blocked by cloud cover- offers the ultimate tool to help offshore anglers pinpoint and precisely locate desirable temperature breaks offshore.
Concentrations of bait and gamefish will often occur where temperature and chlorophyll breaks are found in proximity to submarine contour changes around ledges, banks, canyons and seamounts.
With FishTrack’s ability to overlay corresponding altimetry (sea surface height anomalies), bathymetry, ocean current imagery, and local hot spots on top of any SST or Chlorophyll layer, successfully targeting fish offshore has never been easier.

Cabo San Lucas and the southern Baja Peninsula is legendary for both its nightlife and its striped marlin fishery. Summer and fall months offer prime time pelagic opportunity on the marlin species, tuna and dorado. Grounds are easily accessible in less than an hour’s ride out of San Lucas and surrounding ports on the Sea of Cortez where waters bottom out immediately from 1000 to 9000 feet in a near instant. Hot spots along Cabo and the Southern Baja include the Cabrilla Seamount, Gordo Banks, San Jaime Bank, and Golden Gate.
Locations of various fish species are affected by water temperatures, time of year and availability of food. Sea surface temperature (SST) plays on integral role for targeting species in their respective seasons. For Cabo and Southern Baja these are the best months to target these species:
· Striped Marlin –November to January
· Blue Marlin – July to October
· Black Marlin –July to October
· Sailfish – July to November
