Blue Marlin Fishing in Cabo San Lucas

Blue Marlin
  • Size 200 to 400lbs
  • Food Value Good
  • Game Qualities Excellent
  • Habitats Offshore

(Makaira nigricans)

The location of Cabo San Lucas makes it the perfect sport to fish for big billfish such as Blue Marlin. With the Pacific Ocean to the West and the Sea of Cortez to the East, currents and schools of bait swirl at the tip of the Baja Peninsula, attracting Blue Marlin from further out at sea. This makes Cabo San Lucas one of the best Marlin fishing destinations in the world, with the prestigious Bisbee's Black and Blue tournament held there annually in October.

Be aware that parking can be challenging! If you can get a shuttle or ride-share, I would recommend it.

Make sure you take steps to avoid motion sickness. Weather was great, but large swells. You don't want your trip ruined by a qweezy stomach.

Make sure you are OK seasickness wise, take appropriate meds. Plus highly recommend a large hat to keep sun off. Also of course sunscreen you are at the Tropic of Cancer sun is very strong. Bring plenty of water etc and snacks.

The Mahi are here crazy thick this time of the year! If you want marlin you have to go 25+ miles off shore and we were catching Mahi 10 minutes from the Mariana

November is a very good month for beginners to get settled into catching Mahi Mahi. It is an excellent fighting fish that are small enough to figure out the basics of angling offshore. And one of the tastiest fish of all... Take your catch to Captain Tony's and have it prepared 3-5 different ways on the menu.

Unless you go to the finger banks, which are about 40 to 50 mile offshore, you are not guaranteed a Marlin. If that is the species, you’re after, prepared to have patience, and the money to go out that far.

If possible, try different boats and Captains. If at all possible, talk with the actual Captain beforehand for accurate and realistic plannng. FishingBooker twice used ineffective middlemen versus communication with the actual Captain (who will make or break your experience).

Yes, this is a great trip for first time angler or more experienced folks. We targeted Dorado rather than marlin, but the boat is well set up for catching larger game fish.

Wear sun protection and a sun fishing shirt , long sleeve , for cool comfort , not a cotton shirt. Ice is provided so bring your favorite drinks and food. Nothing like an ice cold drink on a hot day. This boat is wide and stable in swells , compared to other boats. Enjoy yourself and have fun !

First time and inexperienced anglers fishing in Cabo San Lucas on a 22ft panga provides a very exhilarating experience. Any person that experiences nausua from motion or sea sickness may not enjoy fishing on a 22ft panga boat.

Take a face gator, Sun glasses, and lather up with sun screen. Not too hot in October but sun will eat you up. Be ready to take home fish.

For larger fish like marlin, you’ll want a full day so you can get further off shore.

Get ready to have fun! Don't set expectations too high because you never know, but with a little luck you will get something to remember.
