Place: Cabo San Lucas
You Can Land Trophy Fish When Cabo Fishing
by Christine OKelly

If you love fishing, you've probably heard of the amazing opportunities in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Even people that aren't impressed by the incredible battles between marlin and man they've no doubt seen on television at one time or another know about the legendary fishing here. If you've never been fishing, it may seem boring as you sit on a boat for hours doing nothing until something bites. Then you just pull it in and you're done. However, this is far from the experience you'll have fishing in these tropical waters.

First of all, you'll be in a tropical paradise when you visit the area. You won't need your winter coat thanks to the year round warm weather here. The area also offers all kinds of fishing, including saltwater fly-fishing, light tackle fishing, and deep-sea offshore fishing. If you're coming with someone who doesn't have an interest in fishing, there are lots of other things to do, making this a great place for anyone to visit.

Fishing Near Shore

Saltwater fly-fishing offers the ideal opportunity to benefit from the fish living in the coral reef and rocky islands surrounding Cabo. Fishing these incredible habitats can land you prize-winning cubera snapper, jack crevalle, cerro mackerel, roosterfish, and more. Once you find the rhythm of your cast, you'll find yourself battling, fighting, and twisting with your catch, challenging your skills as you win.

Local fishing charters offer the comfort and amenities you might need in addition to tournament quality gear and expert guides. Light tackle fishing will allow you to sit back and give your shoulders and arms a break from fly-fishing as you reel in some big fish. Novice and expert anglers alike will love searching for larger fish offshore, catching grouper, bonito, perch, snapper, carp, and more.

Deep Sea Fishing

Cabo fishing is at its best when you head out to the open sea. Called the Marlin Capital of the World, you can catch these incredible 1,000-pound fish that live in this nutrient-rich water. When hooking a sailfish or striped marlin, your rod and line will bend and the adrenaline rush you experience is like nothing you can imagine. As you brace for the fight of a lifetime, you'll realize this is much more than just reeling in a fish. Sailfish and marlin are pure muscle. Their survival instinct is as mighty as their tails. They power through the water and will thrash to defeat you. You will also find other game fish in these waters, including shark, mahi-mahi, tuna, tarpon, and halibut.

Expert Charters

Your charter captain will make sure you head to the best spots for what you want to catch and the crew will give you the professional gear and advice you need for a successful trip. Most of the crewmembers on these charters are so good at what they do, they've been featured on the Sportsman Channel, ESPN, OLN, and in Sport Fishing Magazine. If you frequent any of these, you may see a familiar face on your fishing charter.

With boats ranging from 24' shallow charters, 47' midsized cruisers, or 70' luxury boats, you are sure to catch the fish of your dreams in these nutrient-rich waters. After a day on the water, enjoy the nightlife in this exciting city, including the unique shopping, fine dining, and beautiful beaches.
