Daily Fishing Report:

Our priority continues to be that you, your family and friends enjoy a fabulous fishing experience, ensuring your safety and health on board our yatchs. Picante Sportfishing is not a typical rental office, Picante owns all our Cabo charters vessels so we can control all levels of service and ensure your safety. We are proud to have a distinguished place in world sport fisheries and we cannot but thank you for your preference and support during these 25 years of our company. Thank you very much!

Due to the rest that we gave to these fishing grounds during the isolation months, the fishing the last 15 days has been incredible. Summer has started and with it the arrival of our favorite big game species.

From Striped Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi to Roosterfish and Cabrilla we’ve got it all, and is the perfect moment to come down here, enjoy a few days in Cabo paradise, with an excellent weather, no line at Mexico customs and few people at the resorts pools and beaches. Don’t you think that one of the safest places right now is offshore and what better offshore than the Cabo San Lucas waters? Contact us and book your fishing charter today!

Two weeks ago our first fishing charters were at the Picante our classic 40′ Tollycraft, where Captain Ricardo Gonzalez and mate Jesús Zamacona retaliated their desire to fish with a beautiful specimen of Striped Marlin, as big as 165 pounds that our customers mount and a big Dorado (mahi-mahi) for dinner. Last weekend they released 2 more Striped Marlin

Dorado bite and Tuna

The fishing aboard the Picante Express have been very productive, our fishermen released 2 Striped Marlin and landed 2 football tuna for a fresh sashimi party.

Last week the Picante Expresso crew found the Yellowfin Tuna landing 7 in total, with the biggest around 50 lbs. They headed inshore and released a nice Roosterfish, those are still around! Yesterday they released one Striped Marlin.

Fishing on the Caliente 45, our special guests caught and release 1 Striped Marlin and landed one dorado for a delicious dinner at their Villa.

Aboard the Picante 45 the party from L.A. caught and released two Striped Marlin, 100 lbs. and 120 lbs. respectively the fighting times reported were 35 and 45 minutes.
