Fishing in Los Cabos

Los Cabos fishing is the stuff that angling dreams are made of. There are few places on the planet that offer such incredible action. Get ready for Billfish bites just a stone’s throw from shore, along with plenty nearshore favorites to keep you on your toes. Add that to the chance of a BBQ as the sun goes down, and you’ve got the ideal vacation activity. 
 
We mentioned Billfish, and you’d better believe us when we say there’s a lot of them here. Blue, Black, and Striped Marlin are the pick of the bunch, with Sailfish also offering up plenty of entertainment and incredible scenes. Couple that with Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, and schools of Yellowfin Tuna, and you’ve got a real big game adventure on your hands.
 
Nearshore, there are plenty of reefs just bustling with some dazzling and delicious fish. Broomtail Grouper and Cubera Snapper are some of the more common catches, with Yellowtail, Mackerel, Jacks, and exotic Roosterfish providing a worthy supporting cast.
 
With great weather year-round, you can come fishing in Los Cabos whenever you fancy. Full day or extended full day trips are suggested for any pro anglers, but beginners and families can get plenty out of a half day voyage. Take a charter out of Cabo San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo, or the more quiet shores of the East Cape, and you’ll be in for a real treat.

 

Rules & Regulations

Most charters in the area provide fishing licenses for all on board, but it’s worth checking with your captain before going. Your professional guide will make sure you stick within bag and size limits, which are pretty generous compared to some US states. 
 

Los Cabos Fishing Seasons

January

The weather is mild and the fishing conditions are perfect for going after Striped Marlin, and the Sailfish bite is very good, as well. Sharks are active, as are Mahi Mahi and Wahoo.

February

Fishing conditions can be unpredictable due to the cold water influx in February. Still, the Striper and Sailfish action is excellent even when fishing relatively close to shore.

March

It’s sunny and warm, but not too warm – the perfect weather for a day of fishing. Inshore anglers will witness very good Roosterfish and Yellowtail action. You can find Swordfish in the deeper waters, as they hit their peak.

April

Whether you’d like to hunt Roosterfish and Yellowtail inshore, or Sharks, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, and Wahoo offshore, April is a great month to do it. Come and make the most of it before other tourists do.

May

As the temperatures rise, so does the fishing action. In May, the season of Bull Mahi Mahi starts, rivaled by the first-class Sailfish and Striped Marlin action. Inshore, Roosters party like it’s no one’s business.

June

It’s June, it’s hot, and here come Blue Marlin! Yellowfin Tuna is coming back to the warm Pacific waters as well, while Striped Marlin and Sailfish are biting like crazy. This is big game season!

July
The month will begin with the Stars & Stripes Tournament. Billfish galore, combined with the abundance of offshore royals like Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, and Sharks make July exciting.
August

As Black Marlin pays a visit to Los Cabos' waters, the Billfish family is complete and ready for Bisbee's East Cape Tournament. Roosterfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Yellowfin Tuna are all on the cards.

September

It’s still hot on the water, but storms are not an unusual sight in September. Still, that won't scare off Marlin and Sailfish, always lurking for their next meal, so come for a big game adventure.

October

October is the big tournament month. Three tournaments will take place in Los Cabos' rich waters this month, with Bisbee’s Black and Blue being the most popular. As you can imagine, the fishing is extraordinary!

November

The month will begin with the WON Los Cabos Tuna Jackpot and it only gets better from there. Marlin are still abundant, as are Wahoo, Roosterfish, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and Sailfish.

December

Striped Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and Wahoo are the superstars in December, as the temperatures cool down. Roosterfish and Sailfish are still inshore hungry and waiting.

wear long sleeves sunglasses hat and bring sunblock and water, I cant say I'm educated enough to say if it was good or bad, but seeing as we caught and say marlin I can't complain. I would say it's great time to see stuff besides the fishing, seeing all the whales was super cool

Pay a little extra for live bait. It’s worth it. Ballyhoo for trolling. Sardines for tuna and mahi. You will need to have some experience to help captain and get fish in the boat drive the boat if needed.

Captain Alejandro is certainly very knowledgeable about the areas to fish and the techniques to catch fish. We trolled to the honey-hole catching a dorado, a wahoo and a bonito on the way. Once there we switched to bait fishing for tuna and had good success catching three tunas of 20, 40 and 50 lbs. We also caught more bonitos and a few other fish. We saw marlin at times but did not hook up. We then trolled back to port catching a few more fish. Truly a great day.

Both the captain and first mate were excellent, they were constantly trying to put us on fish. When trolling wasn't working we tried jigging and when that didnt work they were in contact with other boats to find fish. We ended the day with a Mahi Mahi and 2 small Bonitas in the boat and we had a marlin on, but it got off. Overall it was an awesome day on the water, great views, whale watching, good food, good people, oh and we caught some fish too.

My trip confirmation email said there was no fee to use a credit card. At 6am the morning of the trip they wanted to charge me an additional 16-19% fee to pay the balance with a card. Other than that, we had a great time. Only caught two Mahi, but Christian cleaned them for us and we had a great lunch of Mahi seven ways at the marina afterwards. Doesn’t get any fresher than that! Crew and boat were great. The fish weren’t biting much today though.

3 hours at sunset was ideal for us. Boat was comfortable, good size older SeaRay but well maintained and gear was top notch. Excellent communication throughout. Jose & Ramone were so helpful. We caught a Bonita, Needle fish, Mahi Mahi and Skipjack. Fishing, sunset, beautiful views with an excellent crew! What more can you ask for? We would definitely fish with them again and recommend you check them out.

The bite was tough but Captain Carlos and Jesus worked really hard and were able to put us on some fish. Lines were in the water before 7:00 AM and it stayed that way for the entire 8 hour trip. Bonus was the bit of time watching the humpback whales from a very close, yet safe distance. Captain made that happen. I would definitely use them again.

The captain and co host were very knowledgeable and professional. This was our first time on a fishing charter in Cabo and celebrating our sons 16th birthday. As a fishing enthusiast, my sons ultimate goal was to catch a marlin which the captain was able to help us achieve this goal 😀. This made our trip and our sons experience which he was overwhelmed with the experienced #bestcaptainandcrew
