Los Cabos grew and became a tourist destination full of fantastic hotels and golf courses thanks to Marlin Sport Fishing. In fact we could say the fame of Los Cabos as a tourist destination is rooted in the popularity it acquired first among Californian and other American anglers because of the abundance of sea life here.
But Marlins aren't the only fish that you can catch here. The high plankton levels and nutrients in the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez mix together creating the perfect environment for life to grow, ranging from tiny fish to impressive marine mammals. There is a large variety of different sizes and shapes of colorful fish sought after by fishermen in Los Cabos, such as Mahi Mahi, Yellow-fin Tuna, Wahoo and Snapper.
Every year between October and November, Cabo San Lucas hosts the most famous Marlin sport fishing tournaments in the world that attract both amateurs and professionals from around the globe
Don't worry if you're here in another season, fishing in Los Cabos is good year round for almost all species. In Cabo San Lucas you'll always have the chance to practice your fishing skills.
Participating in a Cabo San Lucas fishing trip with your family or friends will leave you with plenty of fond memories of quality time together. Amazingly, you'll find the largest charter fishing fleet in the world here, in three areas: Marina Cabo San Lucas, La Palmilla and La Playa at San Jose. Another way to enjoy a relatively inexpensive day's fishing is to hire the services of the local pangas or go surf fishing. Whatever style of fishing you decide on you'll always have the chance to catch that trophy fish!
