Cabo Sport Fishing - 28' Californian

When it comes down to exciting catches, productive spots, an excellent vessel, and a wealth of local knowledge, Cabo Sport Fishing Fleet is a great choice.

Your trip will take place aboard one of their 28’ Californian boats. They have a lot of shade, fishing space, and they come powered by a 260 HP Cummins engine. Fully overhauled in 2016, they are fully rigged with electronics, professional accessories, Penn and Shimano gear, and even a fighting chair for those who are up to a challenge.

The crew will work hard to have everyone aboard happy and enjoy their trip. You will be fishing up to 35 miles offshore for anything from Skipjack and Yellowfin Tuna to Swordfish, Roosterfish, Striped, Black, and Blue Marlin, Sailfish, Kingfish, Mahi Mahi, Amberjack… and the list just keeps going!

Enjoy a day out on the water and make a great catch possible. Take your whole family with you and have a fun and productive fishing trip with the crew.

Cabo Sport Fishing Fleet will provide you with all the necessary gear, tackle, and lures. Live bait will be extra (around $20 in total for a half-day trip and around $30 for a full-day). Fishing licenses for anglers over 12 years of age can be purchased in cash at the marina for $20 per person. A $15 port fee is to be paid per boat for every trip.

Please note that there is a 5% fee for payments via PayPal and a 16% fee for credit cards.
