April 2022 - Fishing Report

Yellowfin tuna and Dorado aboard the Picante 45
Greetings from the beautiful, warm and sunny Cabo San Lucas!
April was a tuna month in Cabo! We started the month with slow activity at the Cabo San Lucas waters, with 1 or 2 Striped marlin released per boat. The second half of April the water warmed up a few degrees making Yellowfin tuna fishing good and an April full of sashimi this year!
The best bait/lure was Caballito, Live mackerel and hoochis.
Some of the best locations this month were: La Herradura and Los Arcos
Inshore fishing were good for Sierra mackerel, you should try the sierra chicharrones, delicious!

Learn more about the fishing in Cabo San Lucas and take a look at our Cabo fishing calendar to know the species most likely to bite during Spring and Summer. During May, there may be Dorado, Swordfish and Striped marlin, plus the inshore fish Grouper, Snapper and Roosterfish
