Cabo San Lucas, Los Cabos, or simply “Cabo” to most visitors, is well-known across the continent. It’s a hub for spring break and summer vacations, but it’s also home to some of the best angling action in the Americas. Cabo San Lucas’ fishing charters are legendary, allowing the town to brand itself as the unofficial “Marlin Capital of the World.”
 
At the meeting point of the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez, Cabo attracts an array of prized fish. Year-round, you can find Marlin biting at the end of your line with Striped Marlin appearing in winter and Blue and Black varieties available in the warmer months. 
 
However, it rarely gets cold here, so there’s never a bad time to visit. The Sea of Cortez attracts Mahi Mahi and Yellowfin Tuna just a few miles from shore, along with dazzling, exotic Roosterfish and exciting Yellowtails. Head further offshore, and the Billfish bite is sensational, with Sailfish and Swordfish joining Marlin for the chance to complete a “Grand Slam.”
 
One of the perks of casting from a Cabo San Lucas fishing charter is that you can land a monster fish on a trip as short as a few hours. The productive waters nearshore are ripe for fishing, and 4–6 hours can be enough to land dinner. However, the real prizes come offshore, where a full day or extended full day trip will take you 15–50 miles out to the banks. 
 

Rules & Regulations

Every angler fishing in Mexico needs a license, however, most captains in Cabo will arrange yours for you. Get in touch with your charter operator before you go to confirm, or pick yours up by the dock. You should also beware that you can’t cook your catch on board, so if you want a fishy dinner, you’d better bring your own snacks.

January

Visit Cabo in January, and you'll enjoy some of the best weather of the year. This is usually a dry month, so you can head out and search for Striped Marlin and Yellowfin Tuna offshore, along with Roosterfish inshore.

February

The conditions are generally good but spring storms are a possibility. Watch out for colder currents potentially hampering the conditions. But inshore fishing is very good and the bottom bite heats up offshore, too.

March

Spring Break sees great conditions in Cabo. The Marlin bite can slow down at the start of the month, but it may come back at the end, while Yellowtails and Spanish Mackerel show up inshore for a real fishing frenzy.

April

With temperatures in the mid 80s and humidity generally lower than usual, April has great conditions with virtually no rain. You'll find Striped Marlin and Dorado biting offshore, with Yellowtail and Roosterfish inshore.

May

It weather really begins to heat up come May. Offshore, you can find a good Striped Marlin bite, with exciting Dorado action too. Closer to shore, the Roosterfish season begins to kick off for real, so get your fill!

June

With water temperatures averaging 94 degrees, this is a month for those who like it hot. Fish offshore for Striped Marlin, Blue Marlin, Wahoo, and big Tuna. Inshore, Roosterfish is on fire, and Snappers and Groupers are biting.

July

July is the warmest month in Cabo and the fishing is hot, too. This is a month for Billfish fans, with Striped Marlin, Sailfish, and Blue Marlin all in the cards. Don't forget about inshore, where monster Roosterfish await.

August

You guessed it – it's hot. August is the wettest month of the year, but don't let that put you off. This is the month for big game anglers, with Black and Blue Marlin on the list Inshore, Wahoo and Dorado join Roosterfish.

September

Tropical storms may threaten but, when the weather allows, this is one of the best months for fishing. You'll find big Yellowfin Tuna, Blue and Black Marlin, and Sailfish to name a few offshore, with Roosterfish in the bay.

October

The world famous Bisbees Black and Blue Tournament is the talk of the town – this is something no sportfishing fan will want to miss. With cooler weather and big fish, this is the best fishing month in Cabo San Lucas.

November

The humidity and temperature drop, so you'll want to make the most of it. Don't miss the WON Tuna Jackpot at the beginning of the month, not the chance to land Striped Marlin, Dorado, and Wahoo, among more.

December

If you want to land a lot of different species in one day, December is the month for you. The main target is Striped Marlin, with Wahoo, Dorado, Yellowfin Tuna offering a prized supporting cast offshore, along with more inshore.

We really enjoyed fishing but the sea was a bit rough. Cabo in May-June is changing seasons so the winds are very present. This made the sea a bit rough and for someone who gets motion sick it was a bit much. Just keep that in mind and go fishing in the morning and not in the afternoon if your fishing during these months.

Captain louis and Anthony are really awesome. Caught 12 Dorado and they wouldn't quit till we caught fish. We caught 9 mahi one morning and they shut down the port and had to quit early because of wind. They offered to take us out again to get our full day finished and we we caught three more huge Dorado. They are very easy going and go to any length to get you your fish.

So glad to have found El Budster online through Fishing booker! This was the best fishing trip ever for us in Cabo! We caught an 8 ft striped marlin and another smaller marlin that we released. We also caught 3 dorados (mahi-mahi). Great crew! We bought the all inclusive 5 hour package. Nice size 28 ft boat for 3 people. They had water bottles for us too! We will definitely book with El Budster next time!

Had a great time caught 4 Dorado and saw some cool wildlife like dolphins, whales, seals, and marlin jumping and stingray jumping. Captain Cesar (I hope I spelled that right) was very nice and very knowledgeable about fishing. Overall I recommend to others looking to go out fishing and get an authentic experience.

Our family went out for a half day fishing trip with Captain Luis and Javier and had the best day! Both the captain and his right hand guy Javier went out of their way to make sure that we had a great time. We caught 3 marlins and a bonus mahi mahi on the way home which we ate for lunch and still have 3 fillets in the freezer for another delicious meal. The boat was super comfortable and very clean. The entire experience exceeded our expectations. We can't wait to go back!

We booked the morning half day trip and captain Juan and his crew did an excellent job. We caught a Blue Marlin, yes a Marlin!!! My first one💪 Started slow, but Juan and his crew cared about it, made changes were proactive, and their hard work paid off. Catching fish is never guaranteed, but with this crew’s attitude, knowledge and a bit of luck, I am sure you will have a blast as we did that day. We will definitely come back. Highly recommended.

Will ONLY fish this boat in future. My bride caught her first Dorado (and several more!) after catching her first Marlin in same boat last year. SIX stars (out of possible 5). Thanks to all…

This was truly the highlight of our week vacation. Rambo was our Captain. Glen his mate and Pancho our cook. It didn’t hurt that we caught great fish including 1 big Marlin and many others, but the way they took care of my family was unforgettable. Pancho our chef. Made us sashimi to die for from my daughters catch. Glen was ready to help everyone and Rambo flat out put us on fish. Thank you so much for the trip. And thank you Mike for coming and meeting us at the dock!!! Highly recommend!!!!
