May was a nice Marlin fishing month in Cabo! Yes, there were days better than others, but overall we saw lots of fish. During may the hot fishing was still at the Cortez side.

Some anglers opted to catch their good for the plate fish like dorado and yellowfin tuna after they released more than 3 striped on their first charter. As we get closer to Summer, dorado, wahoo, yellowfin tuna will still be very popular and maybe you’ll start to see more blue and black marlin in the spread.

The best bait/lure was Caballito and Live mackerel.
Some of the best fishing spots this month were: 95 and 11:50 at Cortez side. May inshore fishing produce sierras, cabrilla and grouper
