No doubt, one of the major international draws of Baja California, and Cabo San Lucas specifically, is the unparalleled fishing found just offshore. Ernest Hemingway did much to bring attention to the sport of Marlin fishing back in the early 1930’s. To the left is Ernest Hemingway pictured with his family and four, large Marlin in 1935.

Today Cabo San Lucas plays host to the richest fishing tournament in the world, the Bisbees. Each year top anglers and “big fish” from all over the world make their way to Cabo San Lucas to fish in this late October tournament with the Bisbee's.
However, most people that come to Cabo to fish are just ordinary folks that enjoy fishing and are looking for the chance to catch something that you just can’t catch or see in the rivers, lakes and oceans at home. Most are looking for a day or two on the water and just want to make sure they get what they paid for when it comes time to getting on the boat and fishing.
If you are looking to book a trip with your group, the best thing to do is make the reservations in advance. We recommend a company named Pochos, which manages a fleet of (4) fishing boats ranging in size and price, and one panga boat. Carlos is the owner and runs the scheduling.
