There are two techniques for fishing in Cabo San Lucas, trolling and casting.

a) The Trolling technique is very effective we troll artificial lures and sometimes live bait. When trolling, we put 4 or 5 fishing lines in the water with artificial lures (all sizes and colors) and we go at a speed of 8-9 knots per hour in order for the lures to work right. Trolling requires lots of patience and luck.

b) The Casting technique is applied when the captain sees a fish afloat (Striped Marlin, Sailfish and Swordfish) and gets as close as possible in order to throw live bait to it. This technique is very exciting because you have the opportunity to see the fish go for the live bait and get hooked.
