CABO SAN LUCAS FISHING

One of the top Cabo San Lucas activities is fishing, since Los Cabos enjoys an international reputation as Mexico's most rewarding destination for sport-fishing. Located at the meeting point of the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez, the clear blue waters of Los Cabos are abundant with diverse and plentiful marine populations. Indeed, Jacques Cousteau declared the Sea of Cortez, on the eastern cape of the Baja California Peninsula, “the richest sea in the world”.

American writer Ernest Hemingway came for the marlin, sailfish, and dorado. The number of marlin caught here, more than anywhere else, has earned Cabo San Lucas the moniker “Marlin Capital of the World”. Cabo is annual host to the world’s largest marlin tournaments. The Los Cabos Billfish Tournament attracts anglers from all over the globe each October. Also in October, Bisbee's Black and Blue is the highest paying marlin tournament in the world, with millions of dollars in prizes. In addition to billfish, the waters around Los Cabos boasts high populations of tuna, snapper, and roosterfish, as well as a variety of other species. The Los Cabos Tuna Jackpot, held in November, features the largest number of fishing boats chartered in Mexico.

It is not uncommon for visitors, even novices, to land a decent catch on their first trip. Chartered boats average one billfish for each departure, and more often than not return to the marina flying their outrigger flag. The best season for striped marlin is from December through June, with populations of blue and black marlin, as well as sailfish and dorado, highest from June through November. Few experiences can compare to the thrill of landing a blue, black, or striped marlin from the back of a fishing yacht. The experience provides memorable vacation tales and photos with which to return home. Fishing trips can be organised from hotels and resorts, or from the Cabo San Lucas marina. There is a range of fishing boats for hire, from inexpensive traditional pangas (beach-launched skiffs) to luxury sailing- and motor-yachts. Fishing equipment is provided, as is guidance for inexperienced anglers, although bait must be purchased. Fish not released back into the sea are filleted and frozen to take home.
