San Jose del Cabo fishing is some of the best in the world

Los Cabos has long been one of Mexico’s most popular Sportfishing destinations.

You can go after the many favorites of sport fishermen, Sailfish, Marlin, Dorado, Wahoo, Roosterfish, Grouper and Yellow Fin Tuna.

San Jose del Cabo has its own panga fleet located In La Playita. This is one of the most successful panga fleet operations in the entire world. Just because the pangas are small in size (when compared to some of the cruisers), don’t think for a minute that these boats are not capable of catching “the big one”. The San Jose panga fleet is just a short distance away from some of the richest fishing grounds in the entire world. These fishermen are some of the most experienced in México, and their daily catch ratio is among the best. Although they generally specialize in the smaller species of game fish, they regularly catch striped or blue marlin and some very sizeable Yellow Fin Tuna.

We are also listing some of the fishing fleets that are located in Cabo San Lucas, for your convenience, as we realize that panga fishing is not for everybody. Cabo San Lucas has a large, modern marina and some of the finest charter boats in the world call this marina home. The comfort of an enclosed cruiser is often called for, depending on the weather and the wife or girlfriend.

If you should happen to catch Dorado, Wahoo, Tuna or Grouper, ask your captain about having your fish prepared, while it is still fresh, at one of the local restaurants. If you wish to bring you fish back with you, have it frozen by your charter operator. Make sure to check with your airline as rules regarding the types of acceptable coolers, used to transport your catch, vary by airline.
