Los Cabos is one of the premier sport fishing destinations in the world, more marlin and swordfish are caught here than anywhere else in the world. With its great geographical conditions, Baja California Sur offers professionals and amateurs
of this sport a long coastline with abundant fish during all seasons.
Fall and winter are excellent for all-around action. Monstrous sword-billed specimens of black and blue marlin run July through October. July through November, Mahi Mahi (Dorado) can be readily caught. Yellowfin tuna hit hard September through January, and wahoo and sailfish round out the mix of offerings, with the warm waters of the late summer and early fall providing the best results. It's very easy to charter a vessel and take advantage of the bounty of the Los Cabos waters.
Los Cabos hosts many fishing tournaments that pit the skill and knowledge of captains and anglers from around the globe, who compete for some serious jackpots: payouts can exceed $3.5 million. Six main tournaments hit the Los Cabos shores in
the year: Stars & Stripes in June, Los Cabos Billfish in October, Cabo Tuna Jackpot in November and the three local Bisbee’s circuit tournaments. If you’re not on the sea going for the big catch, stop by dockside with a cool beverage in hand to watch
the weigh-ins as the competing boats return.
