Daily Fishing Report:

Cabo San Lucas is one of the best places to enjoy deep sea sport fishing that’s why it’s the “Marlin Capital of the world”. The waters here are filled with big game catches anglers can fish a good prized such as Big Tuna, Marlin and Dorado to name a few that’s why we have several tournaments and this is because we have the better of two oceans (Pacific Ocean and Sea of Cortez).

Fishing know continues been good just with a couple days with a little wind but most of the days are been great the best fishing spot was Finger Bank, but if you prefer stay close the fishing it’s good too on the Pacific side by Golden Gate Bank this is 15 miles to the north and is known as the best place to fish in Cabo San Lucas and the other one is the Lighthouse this is a landmark that is used like a point reference just south of there between 2 and 15 miles out.

 The best bait/lure was the Mackerell bait, but the artificial are doing their fair share of catching too, as the fish are extraordinarily eager as they come into the trolling patterns.
