Captain Pollo Sportfishing

Head out of San Jose del Cabo with “Captain Pollo Sportfishing” and experience some of the greatest fishing in all of Los Cabos! Big fish are the name of the game here and you’ll reel in monsters both inshore and offshore with Captain Jesús Morales Barrera. You’re in safe hands with this local pro whose family has been fishing these waters for generations.

Your vessel for the day is a 29’ California sportfishing boat, lovingly restored in 2014. She’s the ideal choice for 6 anglers who want to be both comfortable and efficient. She’s got ample seating space on both decks, a private toilet, and 2 fighting chairs you’ll want to make use of for sealing the deal with big game fish.

Whether you’re inshore or offshore, there are massive fish on offer. Head into the deep if it’s delicious Yellowfin Tuna or Mahi Mahi you’re after. You’ll also face off with a variety of Marlin and fun-to-catch Wahoo. The inshore fishing is just as exciting and you’re positioned to reel in massive Roosterfish, as well as tasty Cubera Snapper and Triggerfish.

There’s a complete range of quality rods, reels, and tackle for you to troll, spin, and bottom fish with on board. Capt. Jesus can also accommodate fly fishing but you’ll have to bring your own gear. Let him know in advance if you’d like him to bring along snorkeling equipment for your entire party.

The crew works hard to keep you on top of the big fish and is happy to clean and fillet anything you choose to keep. If you’re happy with their service, tipping is customary.

Make the most of the action in San Jose del Cabo with Captain Pollo Sportfishing!
