Cabo San Lucas
Trek wants you to give this beautiful resort destination another try. For many years, Cabo San Lucas was considered one of the top marlin destinations in the world, but bad conservation policies and unchecked offshore commercial fishing resulted in a decline in the population of fish. Now, locals claim things have turned around and the fishing is some of the best they have seen in years. Call us today to arrange the perfect Baja experience.
This Cabo San Lucas fishing trip starts with your arrival into Los Cabos International Airport, where you will be transferred 45 minutes south along the Baja Corridor to Cabo San Lucas. As mentioned above, there are a number of wonderful resorts, homes and condos available in the Cabo area. Trek will be glad to suggest and reserve accommodations to suit your needs. After getting settled this first day, it’s off to see the sights and sounds of Cabo, including a tour of the marina area and your fishing boat. The next three days will be full fishing days from 8:00 to 5:00, and then we will arrange your transfer on the fifth and final day.
The fishing habitat in Baja consists of two different bodies of water; the Pacific and the Sea of Cortez. Both offer a great chance of catching Pacific sailfish, blue and striped marlin, dolphin, tuna, wahoo and roosterfish. Our fleet of boats will be in the 31-36 foot range with upgrades available to boats up to 52 feet.
Your captain will be bilingual, and you will have a mate that is experienced in handling the equipment and making suggestions on how to hook your fish. All billfish will be released, but dolphin, tuna and wahoo will be brought on board and taken to your favorite establishment for dining. Runs to the fishing grounds are typically 20 to 50 minutes unless something extraordinary is happening, in which case you will be briefed.
There is no shortage of places to stay in Cabo or the surrounding areas. Trek has some exclusivity with regards to a 10,000 sq foot home on the Pacific neighborhood of Pedrigal as well as three other homes between 2500 to 4000 square feet. You may also elect to stay in a one of the many resorts that make up the Baja and its Corridor. And if golf is your game, the Baja area has some of the finest courses in the world, a perfect complement to your fishing days. The Trek staff can custom design your accommodations according to your group’s needs.
By Kevin Gehm – February 2013 As those who fish the blue water are well aware, Guatemala is the mountain top when it comes to high volume sailfish action. So, when I recently had an opportunity to take a long weekend to head down to visit with several Trek anglers,...
