Scorpion Sportfishing – Scorpion

Scorpion Sportfishing has something special to offer anglers on the Southern Baja’s Eastern Cape. With two boats at their disposal, they have something for everyone. They take fishing seriously, supplying great tackle and equipment. Not to mention serious fun!

At 26’, The Scorpion is spacious, fast, and comfortable. With a limit of 3 anglers on every trip, this vessel has the space to make sure each and every guest has the space, equipment, and individual attention they deserve.

Powered by twin Suzuki 250 HP motors, The Scorpion makes light work of the distances between the fishing grounds. And because it is fully rigged with advanced marine electronics, outriggers, two live wells, numerous fish bowls, and a huge Yeti cooler for your beverages, it won’t let you down.

Your trip will take you out into the Sea of Cortez, one of the world’s most abundant fisheries. Here, you can find yourself up against anything from a Blue, Striped, or Black Marlin to a Roosterfish, with Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and Sailfish also frequently making their way onto The Scorpion’s deck.

You will be provided with excellent gear to get between you and the fish, with Seeker rods being used with Shimano reels and Power Pro braid. Tiaras, Talica two speeds, and spinning reels are all brought aboard to ensure your sportfishing experience is top-notch, whatever your target species.

Whether you are an experienced angler or a complete beginner, Scorpion Sportfishing will make sure to give you the time of your life. Inshore or offshore, heavy tackle or fly fishing, they have the skills and equipment you need.

If you are looking for high energy sport fishing coupled with cutting edge techniques, look no further than Scorpion Sportfishing. Don’t miss your chance!

Captains Matthew Clifton and Arturo Silva own and operate Scorpion Sportfishing charter. Arturo is a native of sunny Baja California, from Los Barriles, a bilingual 4th generation fisherman. Being very passionate and knowledgeable about the region, the Captain does everything from casting offshore to piloting large yachts. Matthew Clifton is an attorney turned flyfishing guide and charter operator. Having realized he wanted to fish for a living soon after starting his practice, he operated a fly fishing lodge and guide service on the San Juan River in New Mexico for a few years and then went to Cabo because of the amazing fishing opportunities it has to offer. You can hire the Captain for an additional fee to be a fly fishing guide for your trip. The “El Regalo” team of Matthew, Arturo and first mate Jorge looks forward to welcoming you onboard!
