Articles about the great Sportfishing around Los Cabos.

Fishing in the waters around Cabo San Lucas and Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, Mexico.

Cabo San Lucas is known as the “Marlin Capital of the World” and deservedly so, as there are more marlin caught here than any other place on earth. Unlike other well-known fishing destinations, where days, and many dollars can be spent in pursuit of this most prized sport fish, it is not unusual to capture one or even more on your very first trip, whether you are a beginner or an expert. Once reserved for the wealthy, sportfishing in Cabo is now within reach of almost all visitors and an encounter not to be missed. Not only will you experience the thrill of battling a creature of incredible beauty and size, or landing smaller species and eating them, your fishing excursion gives you an opportunity to view the Cape and its landmarks from a unique perspective and often allows you to get a close up look at whales, dolphins and seals.
