Cabo Sportfishing Crew – Blue Tail

Cabo Sportfishing Crew runs half and full day trips out of the famous sportfishing town of Cabo San Lucas, going after the huge fish which have made this town a household name among anglers worldwide. Captain Ismael heads an experienced crew that has the skills, the resolve, and the equipment to get you on that fish of a lifetime, without breaking the bank in the process.

You will be fishing aboard the “Blue Tail,” a 29’ Californian sportfishing boat. A brand new 2019 model, she features everything you will need for some world-class sportfishing, as well as plenty of luxuries to make your trip even more enjoyable. The boat has a convertible top to keep off the hot Mexican sun, and a stylish interior complete with an enclosed head for extra comfort on longer trips. The trips are all inclusive.

The Blue Tail is equipped with the latest electronics to sweep the deep in search of big fish. Then her outriggers and downriggers will let you target every species out there and her fighting chair will let you hold your own, no matter how hard they fight. She has a livewell full of quality bait and tuna tubes to let you work your way up to some real monsters.

What you target on your trip is entirely up to you. Even on a half day, you will have plenty of time to head out in search of pelagic species if you want to. Or, if you want to spend the whole day fishing the bays for big Roosterfish, Snapper, and Grouper, that is completely fine, too.

There is tackle aboard to target all these species and more, with a choice of light and heavy tackle, and the option to troll, bottom fish, jig, or pop the day away. The Cabo Sportfishing Crew will walk you through all these techniques and work hard to make sure you get as much out of your time with them as possible.

You will be supplied with everything you need for the trip, all you need to do is show up. So what are you waiting for? Grab your camera and jump aboard for the trip of a life

I have always felt a passion for fishing. It is a sport which gives me the opportunity to have fun every single day, as every day is different. There is always something new to see or learn, as well as the opportunity to exchange experiences and meet people from different places. The trips are operated by various company captains like captain Juan or captain Ishmael.
