Los Cabos has been and remains one of the most important sport fishing destinations around the world. Known as the “Marlin Capital of the World,” fishing in Los Cabos has gained an international reputation that is impossible to ignore.
Los Cabos, Mexico, has the unique benefit of the fusion of The Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez, creating nutrient rich waters which are produced by offshore currents that lure big game fish to the area making deep sea fishing a year-round event for a variety of large species including marlin, swordfish, tuna and sailfish in over 13 dedicated locations.
Inshore fishing along the rocky shoreline provides roosterfish, snapper, rainbow runners, yellowtail and grouper. If you prefer surf fishing, the waters are plentiful by the beaches of “El Arco”.
If traveling to the East Cape area, you will find tranquil beaches where roosterfish, snapper and mahi-mahi can be found.
It is important to mention that the Sea of Cortez is the mating area of the humpback whale, so don’t be surprised if you spot one near your boat while fishing mid-December to mid-April.
If Marlin is what you’re interested in, striped marlin are plentiful year round, blue marlin and black marlin can be found during the warmer months of the year.
Los Cabos has gained many world record catches and has become one of the most important Tournament Destinations, hosting the famous Stars & Stripes Tournament in June, Los Cabos Billfish Tournament in October, Cabo Tuna Jackpot in November and the three local Bisbee’s circuit tournaments which run from August to October (the Bisbee’s East Cape, Los Cabos Offshore and the Bisbee’s Black & Blue).
Tournament prizes can go into the millions and entice captains and anglers from all over the world.
