Baja Striped Marlin

Targeting striped marlin in Cabo San Lucas

Cabo Overview

WHAT: Striped marlin.

WHEN: October through February. November and December have been most reliable the past couple of years.

WHERE: Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur, Mexico.

WHO: Charter services are abundant in Cabo; fleets offer boats from 28-footers on up. Rates start around $450 per day and increase with the size of the boat, and the supplies and services provided. When booking, be specific about your expectations and how you want to fish. Crews know their business, but you'll need to tell them what you want to do. If you want to troll for dolphin and wahoo to and from the marlin grounds, say so. They'll be happy to accommodate you. Budget 15 to 20 percent of the charter fee for tips.
