Offshore fishing Cabo San Lucas

10 posts in this topic

I'm looking for recommendations for a Charter Fishing Boat out of Cabo. We'll be there the third week of March. I've heard good things about Marlin Masters. Does anyone have experience with this operation, or any other companies?

I did. Someone ended up bumping the fishing in Cabo thread. I remembered reading it quite some time ago and couldn't find it. I think we're going to book with RedRum. They seem to be a pretty reputable charter. I think my wife's more excited than I...is that kosher? Anyhow, Traveler, thanks for double checking.

Redrums a good outfit. Have a great trip, and report back, eh? And it's great your wife is so into it...wish mine could handle the ocean.

Guys - All I am going to say is that we went with RedRum on the 23rd and I won't be back...

feetdown; please say a lot more:) We used Redrum for a small tournament in oct., and will be again this year. They treated us well, and everyone seemed to like them. Please give some detail on your trip; what you expected, what they delivered, etc...If they've gone downhill I'd love to know, plus, if you chose them on my recommendation and it didn't go well I don't want to keep suggesting them.

If any of you want to try light tackle fishing for Grouper, Snapper, Amberjack, Bonitas, Yellowfin.....I just got back on Friday. Went out with Gordo Banks Pangas and had a blast. Caught around 50 fish in about 6 hours and missed a bunch. Ask for Chame's boat.

Sounds like you had a good day BGP. We fished with them for a day in Oct and I was able to catch some small yellowfin on my spinning outfit, way fun! How did you do for tuna? Did you end up going out of CSL as well, or just with Gordo banks?

BGP, thanks for sharing, I have always thought about going out on a panga for a day while I am down there. Usually see about 20-30 boats in front of our hotel daily as I am shore fishing. Do you know whereabouts you were? We stay at the Sheraton Hacienda Del Mar.

I'm kicking myself for only going out one day. I will go back for sure. Cabo is a great area. Gordo Banks is out of San Jose Del Cabo. We left from the new Marina. Out the Marina and to the left (east I'm guessing) and fished in the Sea of Cortez. Maybe 1\2 mile offshore.

On a side note.....Sammy Hagar decided to come in and play at Cabo Wabo the first night we were there. What a treat.

      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips

      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.

      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish

      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?

      I would call the catfishing this week seasonal.  It is a pretty normal bite for a period of lower water and heat.  The catfish are in post spawn and spread out in their summer haunts.  The more aggressive fish are in the deeper water in the middle of the river.  As usual stay on the move and keep the bait fresh. Bait does not seem to matter still but people with frogs are saying they are getting their better hits with them.

      Wildlife artists can submit entries for the 2018 Minnesota Trout and Salmon Stamp through 4 p.m. Friday, July 28, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  2017 Trout and Salmon Stamp Competition
      First Place: Timothy Turenne Anglers can purchase the trout and salmon stamp validation with their fishing license for an additional $10.

Brook trout designs are not eligible this year. Artists are prohibited from using any photographic product as part of their finished entries. Winning artists usually issue limited edition prints of the artwork and retain proceeds. Judging will take place Thursday, Aug. 3, at DNR headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul. For more information and contest guidelines, visit mndnr.gov/stamps, or call the DNR Information Center at 651-296-6157 or 888-646-6367. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
