Fishing in Los Cabos

No matter if you are a pro fisherman, or sport fishing is merely your hobby or you simply always wanted to try how it feels to wait in serenity for your catch of the day in Los Cabos


Los Cabos – that is over million visitors each year, enjoying nice beaches and some of the best golf courses in the world, but most importantly, this place is all about fishing! Over 80 years passed since Zane Grey was writing in his book, Fishing Virgin Seas, that eight over-a-hundred-pounds yellow fin tunas in one day are no exception. No one can stop the time, but it seems that is exactly what happened in Los Cabos. Even though the place grew a bit and some of the finest hotel resortsa, golf fields and an airport were built in San José de Cabo some 43 kilometres (27 miles) from Los Cabos, the sea has still kept its virgin character.

No matter if you are a pro fisherman, or sport fishing is merely your hobby or you simply always wanted to try how it feels to wait in serenity for your catch of the day and listen to nothing else than humming of waves and squawking of seagulls, Los Cabos is the place to be on your next vacation!

First-class Fishing Destination

What makes Los Cabos a true hot spot for sport fishing is definitely the abundance of its marine wild life. You can look forward to huge shoals of Striped Marlin, Blue Marlin and Black Marlin, which are present throughout the whole year, with peak months being May, June, December and January. There is a good reason why this place is crowned as a “Marlin Capital of the World.” Among others, it could be also Yellowfin Tuna, Dorado, Wahoo, Roosterfish, Shark, Snapper, Swordfish and/or Sailfish that could end up on your fishing rod. Don’t forget that you are in a desert area with little humidity with over 300 days a year of sunshine (70 ºF/21 ºC in Winter and 90 ºF/32 ºC in Summer), you can pretty much bet on sun during your vacation.

Fishing like a Pro

No matter whether you are an experienced in sport fishing, there are many local fishermen companies who will gladly guide you through everything, and arrange a private charter with a state-of-the-art equipment. The choice is only yours: whether offshore, deep sea fishing vessels or traditional panga depends only on your skill and preference. Local anglers know the best spots not far from Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo Corridor, such as the world-famous Gordo Bank, Golden Gate Bank, and Jaime Bank.

So if you are already a passionate fisherman or about to become one and would like to try your chances, just come to cast your fishing line and wait for your catch of the day!
