Among the many species of fish to catch in Los Cabos you'll find Blue Marlin, Black Marlin, Stripped Marlin and Sailfish, however these are endangered species so it is mandatory to follow the laws of ''catch and release'' in this area. This means you have to weigh and measure the fish, take pictures of it for records and then release it back into the sea. If it is done properly then the fish almost always survives.
The fish you can catch in Los Cabos include Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Snapper, Grouper and Tuna. However, the temperature difference between the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez can be up to 18?ÂºF and this means the abundance or lack of one species or another. All of them are edible and they are rarely in ''close season'' for reproduction or a sanitary alert. If this is the case and you catch this particular fish then you must return it to the sea dead or alive. If it is open season, then there is still a restriction on the number of fish you can take for your own consumption. Your guide can assist you by telling you which ones and the quantity you are allowed to take. An additional service the marina can provide is to filet your fish for you and most hotels will agree to cook your catch for lunch or dinner. Talk about it with your hotel's concierge, Maitre d' or chef.
