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 have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
