CABO SAN LUCAS - MARLIN CAPTIAL OF THE WORLD
When it comes to Cabo San Lucas its all about the location, location, location. Located at the tip of Baja California Sur where the Pacific meets the Sea of Cortez makes it one of the best fishing destinations in the World.
Cabo San Lucas is known as the “Marlin Capital of the World” we have striped, black, and blue Marlin running through our waters but currently, Mexico is making a big push to save the Marlin so although they might get hooked up from time to time we strive to keep them swimming freely. Need not worry Cabo San Lucas is a fisherman’s playground, filled with plenty of pelagic and demersal fish. There is something for everyone here.
WHAT TYPE OF GEAR ARE WE USING
Phantom Fishing Cabo’s gear is top of the line and always in great condition. Our lines are checked daily and switched out for new as needed. We keep our hooks and lures always in the best fishing conditions. All fishing rods and reels were upgraded in 2016.
WHAT TO BRING ON YOUR FISHING TRIP
Mexico Fishing License:
A printed copy of your Mexico Fishing License is required to fish the waters of Mexico. If you do not have a printed copy of your license the morning of departure the boat will have to stop on the way out of the marina to purchase another license, taking up precious fishing time. If you have booked our All-Inclusive Package, we will handle the purchase of all the fishing licenses for your group and have them on the boat the morning of departure. If you are purchasing your license on your own, we highly recommend purchasing and printing prior to your the day of your departure.
Bait is caught locally and subject to availability. Bait is purchased from local fisherman as you leave the marina. We recommend 5 baits for a half-day charter and 10 baits for a full-day charter. If you would like to buy extra bait for your trip please let your mate know, they will be happy to make it happen. We use different fishing techniques depending on what is working at that time.
Protection from the sun:
All of our boats have a great space to escape the sun but that doesn’t mean you won’t be feeling the heat! Please be sure to hydrate, bring sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, and anything that will make your trip more enjoyable.
We highly recommend that you take the necessary medication or organic alternatives (such as ginger pills) to prevent motion sickness while we’re at sea.
Have fun! Enjoy the beauty that is Cabo San Lucas. There are no bad days when you are fishing, remember to take it all in! “A bad day fishing is better than a good day working!”
