When you’re on the trail of predators like Mahi Mahi, Striped Marlin, and Roosterfish, use live bait.They won’t be able to resist it and once they hit it hard, you’re in for a proper fight.
To have most success when chasing Roosterfish in the East Cape, slow trolling with live bait can land you a 50-pounder.
Striped Marlin are most active in the winter months, because they prefer colder weather and waters, so their time to shine runs from November to April.

Los Cabos Fishing Seasons
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.
The weather is fickle in February, so the fish could become unpredictable due to the cold water influx. Still, the Stripey and Sailfish action is excellent even when fishing relatively close to shore.
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 mainly in March.
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.
As the temperatures are rising, so is 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.
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.
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 in the cards.
It’s still hot on the water, but storms are not an unusual sight in September. Still, that will not scare off Marlin and Sailfish, always lurking for their next meal.
October is the big tournament month. Three tournaments will take place in Los Cabos waters this month, Bisbee’s Black and Blue being the most popular one. As you can imagine, the fishing is extraordinary.
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.
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.
