There are only a few places in the world where you feel great getting up in time to watch the sun rise. The Cape at Cabo San Lucas is one such place. When your fishing day starts, when the sun rises over the East horizon and the harbor is alive with anticipation; when you motor out past the arch rocks with a chorus of sea lions barking and frigate birds circling; when you spot whales spouting and breaching; when dolphins glide across the waves to play; all this before the first hurrah of "fish on". Then you will know the true joy of bluewater fly and light tackle angling with Baja Anglers.
Baja Anglers specializes in fly fishing as well as using light tackle fishing with spinning rods/reels or bait casting gear.
From bonito to marlin, skipjack to yellowfin tuna, jack cravelle and ladyfish, there are approximately 20 species of bluewater speedsters on hand to keep things interesting… Very interesting!
Roosterfish or “pez gallo” are unique to the tropical Pacific. These fish are found inshore near the sandy beaches. T hey are the predators of the surf and can grow to over 100 pounds. January through September.
Cabo San Lucas is the acknowledged striped marlin capital of the world. These super-charged rockets weigh from 50 to 300 pounds, averaging 125. Year around, best January to August.
The dorado is a fast-growing fish, running from 5- to 70-pounds. Your average dorado will weigh 10- to 20-pounds. June through January.
Pacific jack crevalle, found in schools close to shore, is quite possibly the most neglected of all the Pacific sportfish. They will readily eat a fly and the resulting battle can last a long time. January through July.
The average size yellowfin tuna will weigh 8 to 30 pounds. July through December.
Your Cabo San Lucas fishing charter begins when you depart the marina around 6:30 AM, returning 8 hours later. You will want to plan on arriving at the Capt. Tony's restaurant to meet your captain 15 minutes early so that you can go over your fly fishing or light tackle needs of the day.
