Top Fishing Charters 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.

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.
