The dream of fighting a big fish haunts all fishermen. An exhausting fight lasting for hours, the thrill of experiencing the power that suddenly surges from the ocean depth and tantalizes you with excitement - these are some of the ingredients that make the fishing in Cabo San Lucas a memorable experience for sea anglers of all ages and levels. Renown for the abundance of big-game fish and year around superb fishing, Cabo San Lucas & Los Cabos fishing charters boast a number of international fishing records. Due to the fact that there are more striped marlin caught within a radius of twenty miles of Cabo San Lucas all year round, this area is known as the marlin capitol of the world. Dorado (mahi-mahi), wahoo and yellowfin tuna are plentiful and don't be surprised if you have one jump right into your boat! Catch and release is the name of the game for marlin fishing and other troy fish. Mahi-mahi and tuna can be kept. The late Jacques-Yves Cousteau visited over twenty times and named the Sea of Cortés the "world's aquarium". Officially known as the Gulf of California, this sea supports more marine life than any other body of water on earth. The Sea of Cortés is Earth's newest sea though it was formed five million years ago when Baja California separated from the Mexican mainland along the San Andreas fault. It is now home to over 800 species of marine vertebrates and 2,000 invertebrates.

Cabo San Lucas Fishing

A fishing trip to an exotic destination such as Cabo San Lucas requires planning, preparation and research. Our charters consist of two kinds of fishing boats: the pangas which are very big row boats with outboard motors providing few amenities or you might consider a cruiser which is a modern fiberglass boat providing shelter from the sun and includes bathroom facilities, staff, meals and electronic fish finding gear. Luckily, getting the most of that investment and making sure the fishing adventure goes smoothly is often just a matter of asking the right people the right questions. At Cabo San Lucas Villas we have done all of the planning and research, and are prepared to address any of the questions that may arise prior or after your fishing trip. Providing good service during our fishing trips is critical. The ability to catch fish is one thing, but it is not something that can be controlled. What can be controlled is the quality of the fishing equipment and the conditions on the boat. We realize that most of our clients appreciate a well-rigged boat and the professionalism of our fishing crews.

Cabo San Lucas Weekly Fishing Report

Pisces Fish Report

May 26th through June 1st, 2012

Overall Catch Success Rate 82%

BILLFISH: It was a bit of an up and down week this report; the fish had moved on, giving up residence of the 11.50 spot, the most popular location for marlin for over a month. It took skippers a couple of days to re-locate them, as they were following warmer water and had moved further up into the Sea of Cortez to Destiladeras. This pattern was reflected in our daily fish reports, with quite a lot of boats "skunked" at the beginning of this period, and then catches gradually increased as the week went on. "Tracy Ann" kept their name up there though, when they released three striped marlin at Punta Gorda on May 28th for George Vargas, Otto Tellez & Joshua Rendon; all on live jurel. Jon Svendson, from Scottsdale, Arizona, fishing alone aboard "Rebecca" had his hands full and his arms tired, as the expert crew guided him to release five striped marlin and a jack crevalle at Destiladeres on ballyhoo. Jacksonville, Florida anglers Bill, Mike & Will Burgsteiner, out on May 31st aboard "Tracy Ann" caught and released four striped marlin on a combination of caballito and ballyhoo, with their fish ranging in size from 120 to 150 lbs. We had plenty of other boats that had one and two marlin and "Valerie" closed out the week with a triple-header on striped marlin on a trip donated to our local marines for Marine Day which is June 1st. Fifty six percent of our anglers caught marlin this week giving us a total catch of 41fish; all but two released.

OTHER SPECIES: Pretty slim pickings on smaller game this week, as the Pacific continued to be foggy and windy, meaning the seas were no picnic. Nevertheless at the end of the week there were some good catches of roosterfish, with the panga "Gloria I" catching five up to 20 lbs plus a nice yellowtail. Offshore catches for larger small game, such as dorado and tuna were slow with just a couple of football size tuna and a couple of dorado up to 40 lbs. We also had a couple of small sharks at Gordo banks, one hammerhead and one mako, both under 50 lbs that were released. Several jack crevalle were also caught.

LOCATION: Marlin, Punta Gorda and Destiladeras. Smaller game inshore from Land’s End to the Old Lighthouse.

WEATHER CONDITIONS: We have two climates on the Baja, Pacific and Sea of Cortez and they are very different. Pacific this week was cold, windy and foggy, whilst on the Cortez side they had a bit of a heat wave and calm seas.

AVERAGE WATER TEMP: 72 to 78 F on Cortez, Pacific as low as 68 F

BEST LURES: caballito, ballyhoo & jurelito.
