Once a small fishing village, Cabo San Lucas is now heralded worldwide as one of the top five fishing destinations on the planet and the “Marlin Capital of the World.” Over the years, fishing in Mexico has transformed from a toil of necessity to an experience chosen by the high-class and wealthy. In the 1950s, fishing beneath the watch of El Arco, Cabo’s dignified landmark, was a favorite of Hollywood’s famous, with the likes of Bing Crosby and John Wayne choosing the deep seas of Cabo to tackle the challenge of the large and beautiful trophy fish that are abundant there.
With the help and expertise of fishfishme.com and our trusted and highly-rated captains and crew, you too can partake in a deep sea fishing charter on the azure seas of Baja California Sur. Throughout the summer season and the peak months of May, June, December, and January, deep sea charters— even with inexperienced fishers holding the rods—can yield between one and ten fish per day. The prize catches include Wahoo and Marlin, with some Marlin weighing in at a whopping 1,000 pounds (if you are both patient and lucky, that is!).
Although some are driven by the prospect of capturing a large, beautiful fish for the sake of appreciating the catch, the struggle, and the fish itself, those who are thrilled by the potential of taking home an impressive trophy will enjoy Cabo’s optional catch-and-release policy.
As time has always proven, the seas are unpredictable and the fish cannot be scheduled. In Cabo San Lucas, however, deep sea fishing rewards the patience and enthusiasm of both novice and experienced fishers alike. In Baja California Sur, especially—as the saying goes—one can always count on the Sea of Cortez to provide a bounty before the day’s end, no matter if it is your first trip or your hundredth.
