15 Apr Cabo Fishing
Try Your Hand at Cabo Fishing!
Cabo fishing is huge, especially when it comes to high-profile tournaments, large cash prizes, and big-game fishing. Each year, people come from all over the world to try their hand at catching the record-breaking fish that live in Southern Baja. Cabo fishing tours run year-round, but the summertime provides some of the largest tournaments in June, July, and August.
Stars and Stripes Tournament (info here)
Held on June 25-June 28, this tournament not only provides great fishing opportunities, but it gives back to youth charities. It is also a combination of fishing and golfing, so there is an activity for everyone. This tournament has also raised and donated more than $20 million to youth charities over its 18-year history.
East Cape Dorado Shootout (info here)
This is easily one of the largest Cabo fishing tournaments with an average turnout out of 130 teams a year. Anglers compete for a large purse, which is part of why this tournament is so popular. Plus, the entry fee is very small.
Bisbee’s East Cape Offshore Tournament
In 2012, a record-breaking yellowfin tuna was caught, weighing at 262 pounds. This large fish earned its team $37,095 in prize money.
Southern Baja is home to huge tuna, snapper, marlin, mahi mahi, wahoo, and more. If tournaments aren’t your thing, then simply get a group of friends together to spend a day out on the water. Book a fishing charter to take you out deep-sea fishing for a day of friendly competition. Charters usually run about a couple hundred dollars, which is easy to split among a big group. Friendly and knowledgable captains are also vital to exploring Cabo waters, so make sure to research your fishing charter. Lots of fishing charters also provide onboard snacks or meals, so check to see if that is included.
