Went fishing with Cabo Sportfishing Crew - El Pargo on March 14, 2019
The water was colder than normal for this time of year so the fish weren't as abundant. I guess they head out of the bay with cold water. However, we still had good action and caught what we were hoping for!

bring sunscreen, a good book and some patience... It is offshore fishing "Not Offshore Catching". You will get the bites, just enjoy everything around you for what it is. Blue water good friends and family. When the bite happens, be ready, listen to the crew and captain. HAVE FUN

Pack a light jacket and sunscreen. The temperature was low 60's in the morning and heated up to low 80's mid day. Make sure you have a way of transporting your catch back with you. One collapsible cooler will fit about 50lbs of fish (and is still fairly manageable to transport).

We fished in Cabo in mid May 2019. The first two days were slow but the third day was great. It sounds like the striped Marlin fishing was just starting to get good. The rooster fishing was also good this time of year. Overall a great value for fishing compared to prices for charters at other destinations

Come during a peak season for the fish you want. It is expensive because everyone gets their hand for money in your fishing trip (taxis, resorts, fishing company, fishing license, bait, filleting the fish, freezing the fish, etc....) Not to mention the pressure to catch and release. I love fish and wanted to keep it so we did.

Dress warm(waterproof jacket) in case of weather change and could get windy. No bathroom on boat. I asked the captain that I was not interested in Marlin and wanted to catch fish to eat. They can take you elsewhere to fish.

Went fishing with Cabo Sportfishing Crew – Blue Tail on April 5, 2019
It was Fun, 4 hours might be too short 8 was a long day. Its fishing you might hook up or you might not ! Saw a whale, had Pelicans and a sea Lion jump on the back of the boat to get at the live well where the bait was stored. We let him eat it, cause he was pretty big and grumpy.

You get what you pay for....so if you want a sightseeing tour where you might catch fish go for pricepoint.....but if you want to catch fish with top notch fishermen and gear do a little research on who you're going with before booking......I wasted money trying to fish everyday on some pangas but I experienced broken gear poor equipment and disorganization

Great weather and some of the fish were biting. Not sure if you would come away with a trophy as I'm not expert, but you'll come away with something to eat and show, for sure.

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.

Know what is in season and what is biting while you are in town. It will help with your expectations heading in to the day.

Fishing when the water is warmer will help you find the fish you’re looking for. It’s is whales and fishing then come on down in March!

Capt Juan and the Bluetail. Expert captain and not a poser like many of the "captains" you will find in Mexico. Superb value.

The crew of the boat are everything. Read reviews on boat and check fishing reviews for the month your planning your trip.

Big boats targeting Marlin means fishing all day for that one bite. I have much more rewarding trips on pangas, more fish and a good experience.

The marina is very large with a couple different docks and entrances. Make sure you know which side to go to before your taxi droops you off.

Do not book online. Wait until you get to Cabo and book with your hotel. The often offer big discounts. They also also know the reputable fishing guides to book with.

Be ready for the heat and sun because you will get a lot of both. No matter what is advertised bring extra water for sure and snacks if you desire them and be ready to pay for bait.

Go to the marina first and then ask questions. There are plenty of boats willing to take you out rather than going online ahead of time and not knowing what you're getting.
