January is an excellent time for Striped Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, Mackerel, and Mako Shark. You’ll also see a good number of Dorado and Wahoo. We see high numbers of Striped Marlin throughout this month, which makes it a great time to go fishing in Cabo San Lucas. The weather is as good as any time, with a forecast of dry and mild.
Cabo fishing in February:
February introduces some inshore fishing into the mix, with Snapper and Grouper becoming available. We’ll also see Swordfish pick up during this month, as well as the continuation of excellent Striped Marlin, Mackerel, and Mako Shark. Wahoo fishing is still good, and Dorado and Yellowfin fishing is fair. February is a great time for fishing in Cabo San Lucas, thanks to a growing variety, and consistently excellent Striped Marlin.
Cabo fishing in March:
As is gets a little warmer here in Cabo San Lucas, we see the inshore fishing heat up as well. March is the beginning of excellent Snapper and Grouper season, and the same goes for Swordfish. Striped Marlin fishing continues to be excellent, and we’ll still see a number of Wahoo, Dorado, Yellowfin, and more. March is a great time for either inshore or deep sea fishing in Cabo San Lucas. The weather in March is a little warmer than earlier in the year, with almost no chance of rain.
Cabo fishing in April:
As we go into April, the offerings of the Sea of Cortez remain steady, with great opportunities to go after Striped Marlin, Swordfish, and inshore fish. Cabo San Lucas whale watching is also good during this month, as the Humpback and Gray Whale travel north. In April, expect great fishing weather, tons of Striped Marlin, and a wide variety of deep sea and inshore fish to choose from.
Cabo fishing in May:
May brings with it the beginning of Blue and Black Marlin season here in Cabo San Lucas, the Marlin capital of the world. At Picante, we’re all about these billfish, so book with us to have the ultimate Marlin fishing trip. We’ll also be seeing more of the striking Sailfish and continue to see plenty of swordfish and inshore fish.
Cabo fishing in June:
Halfway through the year we start to see more from Dorado, and Wahoo. This is the last solid month for some of the inshore fish, as well as the Swordfish. Blue and Black Marlin fishing will be picking up this month, and we’ll still be having a good number of Striped Marlin. Cab San Lucas fishing in June is great thanks to the high level of diversity in the water during this time; many of our favorites are available this month.
Cabo fishing in July:
During summer, Blue and Black Marlin fishing is at its peak. We also get a large number of Dorado and Yellowfin, making July a good month for targeting some of Cabo’s most popular fish. If you’re looking for incredible Marlin and Dorado fishing, give us a call so we can hook you up with one of our knowledgable captains.
Cabo fishing in August:
During August you’ll have similar options as in July, with large numbers of Black and Blue Marlin, and a good amount of Striped Marlin in the water. Marlin fishing in Cabo is the best in the world, so this is a great time to come see what’s out here and experience the fight of these fish. During summer we also get some of the best Dorado, Red Snapper, and Rooster fishing. If you’re thinking of coming to Cabo San Lucas for a fishing trip, August is as good a time as any for top tier Marlin fishing, and other popular fish like Dorado.
Cabo fishing in September:
Towards the end of summer, the billfish are large in number. We see an increase in numbers of Sailfish, and Yellowfin. September is a big month for Blue Marlin, as well as Black Marlin. Dorado remain a popular choice for this time of year. Fishing in Cabo San Lucas is good year round, and during September you can expect tons of options and great catch, as well as great weather.
Cabo fishing in October:
October is tournament time in Cabo San Lucas, the “Marlin Capital of the World”, and it’s when a ton of trophy sized Black and Blue Marlin are pulled from the Sea of Cortez.

November is when we see a lot of really great Dorado, Yellowfin Tuna, Mackerel, and Shark. November is a great time for family fishing trips, and Picante has the know how to make your charter a memorable experience.
