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.

      Wanderer ,I believe Ely seizure was something to do with the BWCA . Lots of articles in newspaper .Some law about no commercial activity ( an active viable fishery) in side of park unless it enhances park like canoe rentals ect.... They were trying to stop Fishery for last number of years. I believe DNR does not want to do away with Frozen Bait Market , they just don't want fish from the Great Lakes or other contaminated areas to bring diesese to inland lakes.  If fish does not have a VHS Certification Number on its package , I would not be using it for bait.  Grocery store stuff totally Illegal ...  I emailed a Bait Company that has VHS Certified Smelt and Alewifes   info@awesomeadventuresfisheries.com     They gave me a list of stores that carry their products ... Save hunting around for Legal Bait   Hope this Helps

      We only fished for 5 hours (only 2 hours were worthwhile 29 ft).

      OK so day before father's day we had terrible weather. 1st spot was in 14 ft of current n we caught 4 eyes. Did c a sturgeon role but waste of time other than that. Next spot 6 eyes still a wasted time cause of the weather but the old man did caught a 20 in so it wasn't all that bad. But once the weather allowed we catch  26 eyes n in 29 ft of water n one was 24 in.

      Definitely have 2 disagree with with u 2. I understand the drive n the worry but if you've fished the csn chain for 10+ years there shouldn't be a worry 2 find a campsite cause you've driven past plenty of them. Also we're in the same boat regardless of the travel distance to fine a campsite. Yes it is nice 2 have a guaranteed spot but since they went 2 paid 2 camp regulation they have taken out a number of campsites so it limits options. ALSO U R WAY WRONG ON SAYING MORE PPL R AT THE PARK NOW. I went last Saturday  (day before father's day) n we seen like 4 or 5 more boats than canoes. It's nice for ppl who don't know the csn chain but it's terrible for the economy.   Fyi. First time I went fishing on the chain I went lake trout fishing on David......... I was 6 weeks old ......... I'm 32 now..... my dad's been fishing the csn chain for 65+ years    P.s. love how there's less pressure=better fishing.

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      We will see if Sailorfly is another ask a silly question one hit wonder?

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!
