Solmar VI Sportfishing- 31 ft Boat

Paseo El Pescador
Cabo San Lucas BS, Mexico

Solmar VI Sportfishing Fleet is one of the largest and most respected charter companies in Cabo San Lucas. They have been offering fishing charters in the area since 2004 and own a variety of boats that can cater for all your angling needs.

Their 31 ft boat ‘Solmar VI’ was recently refreshed in 2015. This is one of the most popular boats in their fleet and has been sailing the waters of Cabo San Lucas for over 10 years. The boat is equipped with two fighting chairs, a live bait tank and navigational electronics to help you target a trophy fish. Plenty of seating is available both in the cabin and on deck, and an enclosed restroom caters for the comfort of all on board. If you would like to include snorkeling in your trip, all the appropriate gear can be supplied on board upon request.

Solmar VI Sportfishing mainly targets Billfish, with Blue, Black and Striped Marlin all frequently caught on their fishing charters. In 2014 this boat landed the year’s largest Marlin in Cabo: the 550 lb Blue was caught with captain Diego and his first mate Bernado. Aside from Billfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo and Tuna can all be targeted if desired and in season. The boat is usually rigged to troll three or four lines at a time, with one line always kept hooked to a live bait in the bait tank to be used when necessary. Penn International reels are used on board together with custom rods and 40, 50 and 80 lb test line.

Over the years that they’ve been in business, Solmar VI Sportfishing have grown a stable base of customers who return to them year after year. Their ability to get results on the water as well as building and maintaining a good relationship with their clients has made them one of the Cabo’s most respected charter fleets.
