May was good for Marlin fishing but the Yellowfin tuna frenzies reports were one of the highlights this month. The tuna weight was between the 15 to 20 pounds, big enough for a delicious family meal. The Striped Marlin were around 120 to 160 pounds, during may the hot fishing was at the Cortez side.As we get closer to Summer, Dorado, Wahoo, Yellowfin tuna will be very popular and maybe we’ll start to see Blue and Black marlin in the spread.The best bait/lure was Caballito, Live mackerel and hoochis.Some of the best fishing spots this month were: Herradura and Cabeza de Ballena, Cortez side.

Learn more about Los Cabos fishing and take a look at our Cabo fishing calendar to know the species most likely to bite during next month. June may bring the Roosterfish and more Dorado, also Striped marlin, plus the inshore fishes Grouper and Snapper.
