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.

Captain George Landrum
Cabo Fish Report
July 2-8, 2007

WEATHER: It is finally time to admit that nature has brought summertime weather to us here in Cabo. This week our daytime temperatures have been in the mid to high 90s while the nighttime lows have been in the high 70s and low 80s. A breath of wind from the northwest has kept the humidity down but that is soon to become a thing of the past. This week we had mostly sunny skies with a few scattered clouds early in the week but no rain at all.
WATER: The California current had a great effect upon our fishing this week as it brought cool, green water down the west coast of the Cape and as it passed Cabo it turned into the Sea Of Cortez. The current only ran to 20 miles offshore on the Pacific side, outside that boundary the water warmed to 78 degrees and was nice and blue. Inside the 20 mile zone the water averaged 71-75 degrees and had an increasing green tint the closer to the beach you got. On the Cortez side of the Cape the cool green water extended south for 30 miles and wrapped around to affect the water as far to the east as the Cabrillo Seamount. Surface conditions were great on both sides of the Cape as our winds were light and for the most part the seas were fairly glassy even though we did have some large swells from the south.
BAIT: Mostly Caballito this week with the new moon having a great effect on the fishing and there were some Mackerel available from the bait barge just outside the Marina. Some Sardinas were available as well if you ventured up toward San Jose. The asking price for the little baits was the usual $20 per scoop and for the larger baits was the normal $2 per bait.

BILLFISH: We are between seasons on the Billfish right now, the water is warm enough that the Striped Marlin are off their feed and it is still not warm enough to bring in any numbers of Blue or Black Marlin. There were great numbers of Striped Marlin spotted on the surface this week but the combination of warmer water and a new moon seemed to have a negative effect on their willingness to strike a lure or eat a live bait. Most of the fish were found on the boundary between the cool and warm water on the Pacific side of the Cape, but there were occasional concentrations found on the Cortez side around the 95 spot and the 1150. I also had the chance to see a Swordfish estimated at #250 being carted along the Malecon as it was being taken to the Smokehouse. It was reported to have been taken along the green-blue boundary 15 miles to the south of the Cape. The blue water on top of the San Jaime bank and to the west of there drew a large number of boats to the area, but the fishing was spotty, there seemed to be better luck on the green side of the break.
YELLOWFIN TUNA: All I can say here is that there were some scattered schools of football fish found but no concentrations of larger fish. I did hear of an #80 fish being caught near to home, but no other information on big fish reached my ears.
DORADO: Once again Dorado were the fish of the week as it seemed every boat that went out was able to get at least one or two of these great eating fish. Most of them were in the 15-20 pound class but there were still enough in the 30-pound range to keep things interesting and I did see one boat bring in a pair of fish in the 50-60 pound class. It appeared that most of the Dorado were found in one of two areas, along the blue-green color break (also a current line) when floating debris was found, or along the coastline within 1 mile of the beach. The larger fish were found offshore but there seemed to be bigger numbers close to the beach. Small bright colored lures worked well as did slow trolled live bait.
WAHOO: Hmm? The red flags I saw this week were for shark, though I did hear a conversation on the radio where one 20-pound fish was caught.
INSHORE: Inshore fishing this week consisted of Dorado and Lady Fish, there were few other species taken on a regular basis although the inshore standbys did make an appearance at times. Snapper, Grouper, the occasional Roosterfish and a few stray Yellowtail were found here and there. As the water warms the Rooster fishing ought to get better and the Dorado and Yellowfin Tuna bite should improve.
NOTES: It was slow for me this week and I did not get a lot of fishing in. Most of the information here is that relayed to me by the guys that managed to get out. I am going to be gone for a week starting on the 11th but will try and get out some information next week. I will be calling home everyday and hopefully will be receiving good news about the fishing, which I will relay on to you. Dont forget about the long-line problem we face as a sport-fishing destination, it may soon have a major effect on us. Check it out at the following link and add you voice to ours!
Until next week, Tight lines!
