June 23, 2019

Well the summer season is now officially here, local weather patterns are steadily warming, some scattered morning cloud cover, quickly burning off as the sun rises higher into the sky, daytime highs reaching 90 degrees. We noticed more crowds of family vacationers arriving, taking advantage of early summer vacation time. Winds were lighter, mainly picking up from the south later in the day. Ocean water temperatures has quickly rebounded back near the 80 degree mark in the direction of San Jose del Cabo and further north. Also clarity is much cleaner on these same grounds in the direction of the Sea of Cortez, while the Pacific still remains greenish and much cooler.

In and around the marina area the bait vendors are finding caballito, mullet and some moonfish, other bait options has been strips of squid and ballyhoo, as well as some bolito and smaller sized black skipjack on the offshore fishing grounds. Anglers are also using yo-yo style jigs for a mix of some bottom action.

Sportfishing fleets are mainly concentrating on the grounds from the Iman to San Luis Bank, not much found on the scouting trips to the Gordo Banks, besides shark and a few billfish. The more productive action has been switching back and forth daily, some days San Luis, others on the Iman. Drift fishing for yellowfin tuna with strips of squid, as well as slow trolling live baits, has resulting in yellowfin tuna catches, fish ranged in sizes from 15 lb. to 80 lb. No big numbers, most boats were having at least a chance or two, some charters landing as many as three or four tuna, the best action seemed to be earlier in the morning.

These same grounds were producing an occasional dorado, a few nicer sized bulls over 25 lb. were accounted for, but only a scattered fish or two, at least we are seeing these prized fighting and popular gamefish present in local waters, they had been absent for a long time during the cooler winter and spring seasons.

The same areas where these surface species are being encountered, there have been options off the bottom while drift fishing with various baits and using the yo-yo style jigs. There were a few variety of grouper, pompano, amberjack, red snapper, yellow snapper, bonito and others on these rocky high spots. All of these being excellent table fare.

All along the beach stretches now is a great time for slowing baits for roosterfish, now the peak season for these gamefish, good chances at hooking into fish over 40 lb., even to 50 and 60 lb. Remember that this species is known for their prized fighting capabilities, not for eating quality, these fishing should always be released, care should be taken while taking a quick photo for documentation of the catch before releasing.

Striped marlin are scattered throughout the area now, right around the Iman bank and towards the Gordo Banks, no huge concentrations, but if you are interested in catching one of these fish, the odds are fairly high now that you find opportunity. Most of the stripers are now averaging 70 to 120 lb. Will not be long until we start seeing the larger blue and black marlin showing up in the warmer summer currents.

The combined sportfishing fleet launching out of the panga area from Puerto Los Cabos Marina sent out an estimated 78 charters for the week and anglers reported an approximate fish count of: 14 striped, 9 dorado, 48 yellowfin tuna, 3 dogtooth snapper, 8 leopard grouper, 4 African pompano, 180 Mexican bonito, 34 red snapper, 12 yellow snapper, 13 amberjack, 44 roosterfish, 14 jack crevalle and 70 triggerfish.

June 2, 2019

As we near the start of the summer season we are now enjoying the ideal climate, early morning cloud cover, burning off as sun comes up, breeze mostly out of the north, though also switching from the south and high temperatures in the lower 80s. Only moderate crowds now, so it is the perfect to visit. Ocean conditions are cold on the Pacific, though in the direction of San Jose del Cabo and to the north we have seen clean blue currents of 74 to 78 degrees.

Main baitfish now found in the local marina area have been moonfish and mullet, ballyhoo are another option, as well as slabs of squid. Charters are working the fishing grounds from Red Hill, Palmilla, Gordo Banks, Iman, San Luis and to Vinorama. Most consistent catches have come from bottom structure, red snapper and Mexican bonito most numerous, using iron yo-yo style jigs, also drifting baits down deep has producing some quality catches. A handful of grouper species and amberjack were accounted for, some over 30 lb.

Early in the week there was limited action for yellowfin tuna found on the San Luis Bank, tuna to over 80 lb. were landed, while drift with strips of squid, this action faded during the week, though the yellowfin were still seen at times showing on the surface, just not all that interested in biting, but with the conditions becoming more favorable, anything could happen on any given day. Other tuna were found further offshore traveling with porpoise, this was a hit or miss deal from day to day and these fish were much smaller, mostly under 20 lb.

We have not seen dorado now for some time, though this week a few were  hooked into while trolling open waters on the marlin grounds, so we are hoping to see more of these popular gamefish move in.

There have been increasing numbers of striped marlin now on the local grounds, spread out from outside the Gordo Banks, La Laguna, straight off of San Jose del Cabo and outside of Palmilla, anywhere from 4 to 10 miles out, There were marlin that hit on trolled lures and various baitfish, we look for this action to break wide open in coming weeks. Most of the stripers are now in the 80 to 100 lb. range.

There were stronger swells pounding the shoreline, though the few charters that did try closer in did report some action for roosterfish and jack crevalle, trolling with live mullet seemed to work best for this action. We also look for this bite to really break wide open in coming weeks, as this is always the local peak season for roosterfish in the alter part of June. Please remember that these game fish should be released with care, they are prized fighting fish, not known for eating quality and grow to large sizes, better to protect them for future generations.

The combined sportfishing fleet launching out of the panga area from Puerto Los Cabos Marina reported an estimated 74 charters for the week and anglers reported an approximate fish count of: 2 dorado, 14 striped marlin, 6 yellowfin tuna, 2 dogtooth snapper, 12 leopard grouper, 1 broomtail grouper, 170 Mexican bonito, 58 red snapper, 4 yellow snapper, 13 amberjack, 10 glasseye pargo, 12 Pacific golden eyed tile fish, 14 roosterfish, 4 jack crevalle and 70 triggerfish.

May weather has been ideal, seems that it has not become too warm yet, a little cooler than we can normally feel this close to summer time. Actually about the perfect climate now, lows about 65 degrees, highs averaging in the lower 80’s, very few clouds, sunny and dry. Crowds of anglers are moderate now, great time for a visit, with some eating fish being brought in. Early in the week we saw currents from the north push in water that was in the 78/70 degree range, later in the week it was holding more in the 74/76 range. Much of the week we felt north winds, this limited at times where charters went, later towards the weekend winds laid down. With changing currents, also this pushed in slightly greenish off colored waters. Transition period has been unsettled for weeks now, eventually conditions will heat up and we will see some more stable patterns.

Bait vendors are finding moonfish, jacks and some sardineta, also options of ballyhoo. The most consistent action being found was over the structure, boats are working areas from off of Red Hill/Palmilla, Gordo Banks. Cardon, La Fortuna, San Luis, north to Vinorama. Some of the best action was very early on the San Luis Banks, anglers working yo-yo jigs did very well for red snapper (huachinango), these fish were quality, average of 5 to 12 lb. Good number of The Mexican bonito as well, also over the various rocky areas there were some amberjack and grouper species found, we saw amberjack up to 70 pounds, most were in the 10 to 30 lb. range. Yellowtail action died off, but some could still happen with that, lots of sharks were moving in around the Gordo Banks, some days sea lions were a bad problem as well.

A handful of striped marlin were hooked into, boat the off colored changing currents, combined with passing of the full moon,  this seemed to spread this action out, scattered activity for billfish, surely will rebound as soon as water conditions become more favorable. No dorado or wahoo being talked about, though there were some yellowfin tuna accounted for from the super pangas fishing on the northern grounds from San Luis to Vinorama, striking on cut bait and yo-yo jigs, most of these yellowfin were in the 12 to 20 lb. range.

Inshore areas just south of Palmilla, to Chileno produced good action for roosterfish, some of these to over 30 lb. Slow trolling live bait was best technique for these powerful gamefish. Also in the mix were a handful of late season sierra, as well as hog sized jack crevalle.

The combined sportfishing fleet out of the panga area from Puerto Los Cabos Marina reported an estimated 60 charters for the week and anglers reported an approximate fish count of: 4 striped marlin, 8 yellowfin tuna, 10 leopard grouper, 245 Mexican bonito, 82 red snapper, 5 yellow snapper, 7 African pompano, 5 barred pargo, 24 amberjack, 9 sierra, 12 glasseye pargo, 22 roosterfish, 10 jack crevalle and 40 triggerfish.

We are seeing limited crowds of tourists now, but we have noticed an increased number of actual anglers, so hopefully this trend will continue. Weather patterns remain ideal, lows of about 65 degrees, with highs reaching into the near 90 some days. Mostly clear sunny skies, not many clouds besides some early in the day that quickly burn off. Moderate winds later in the week, early on had been very calm. Warmer current moving in from the north, up to 78 degrees on the Gordo Banks, still much cooler on the Pacific side of Cabo San Lucas.

Bait netters had to work extra hard to obtain what they could, a mix of moonfish, caballito and a few species of sardinas were found. On the fishing grounds, namely Gordo Banks, anglers were able to jig up some other chihuil baitfish, but this proved scarcer by the day as water warmed up quickly. Using mullet now is prohibited, believe this season will open up in coming weeks.

Main fishing grounds being concentrated on now, have been from Palmilla, Red Hill, Gordo Banks, San Luis and as far north as Vinorama. The Gordo Banks had been the location where yellowtail were being found, averaging 25 to 35 lb., striking on larger live baits near the bottom, though as the week progressed this bite came to a standstill, large numbers of various shark species were also moving in on these same grounds, that seems to spook the gamefish. Sea lions were a pesky problem as well, especially on the grounds to the north, good action for red snapper and bonito was wrecked by these aggressive mammals. Other bottom action included cabrilla, leopard grouper, pargo and amberjack, on Thursday there was a very impressive 96 lb. amberjack landed from a panga. More numbers bonito than anything else, most of these were striking on yo-yo style jigs, weighing 5 to 10 lb..

In recent days the striped marlin became much more active, on these same grounds and a bit further offshore there were stripers being found, most of these were striking various baits and average weights were 70 to 100 lb., though one monster striper of about 180 lb. was landed on Friday, many people were thinking it was a blue marlin because of its size, years past we used to see more of the larger striped marlin. One wahoo of about 25 lb. was also landed Friday, no dorado or yellowfin tuna to speak of. To the north off of Cabo Pulmo they have been finding tuna, so we expect these fish will also move south into our range before too long. Off of the San Jose del Cabo hotel zone anglers were finding better action for roosterfish in the 15 to 25 lb. range, we look for this action to peak in the six weeks or so, please remember that these gamefish should always be released. Not as many sierra being seen now, no large schools of sardinas to attract them and as the water temperatures increase these fish usually migrate out of this region.

The combined sportfishing fleet out of the panga area from Puerto Los Cabos Marina reported an estimated 66 charters for the week and anglers reported an approximate fish count of: 13 striped marlin, 13 yellowtail, 1 yellowfin tuna, 1 wahoo, 18 leopard grouper, 360 bonito, 74 red snapper, 10 yellow snapper, 5 African pompano, 6 barred pargo, 29 amberjack, 11 sierra, 6 glasseye pargo, 32 roosterfish and 75 triggerfish.

May 5, 2019

This week with the start of the new month we saw increased numbers of anglers showing up in town, along with hundreds of off road racing enthusiasts, here to celebrate the finish of the annual Norra Mexican 1000 five day rally. Weather conditions were excellent, nearly perfect climate now, hardly a chill early morning, with daytime highs reaching the mid-80s. Swells were slight, winds minimal, ocean temperatures ranged from 70 to 75 degrees through most of the region, with warmest currents found outside of San Jose del Cabo and towards the Gordo Banks.

Main baitfish being found have been the sardinas, a bit more spotty from day to day, the netters have been finding these schooling baitfish from near the marina jetty and off of Palmilla, though not in the quantity as in past weeks.

This week we felt a warming trend with different currents pushing in towards the Gordo Banks zone and this helped wake up the action some. Large whale sharks were also sighted on these grounds, slowly cruising around, not spooked of the any boat traffic, being larger than most boats themselves. No huge numbers of any particular gamefish species were being landed, though a variety of fish were being seen, including yellowtail to 30 lb. Early in the week some boats had as many as three yellowtail, since it has slowed, though these yellows are still in the area, downrigger proved to show best results, though not all bats use this method. Free swimming wahoo were spotted, but not on the bite, some tuna were seen working the surface, but they proved difficult, these was an occasional hook up reported. Jigging off the bottom produced some bonito and snapper.

A handful of yellowfin tuna were also found on the grounds from Iman, San Luis and Vinorama, a couple of tuna between 80 and 100 lb. were accounted for, most of these caught by local pangeros specifically targeting these fish for commercial value.

Closer to shore there was a variety of shallow water structure species found, drift fishing with sardinas worked well for this action. Species included sierra, yellow snapper, African pompano, triggerfish and a handful of amberjack.

Offshore there were reports of striped marlin activity from around the 1150 spot, this is just starting to develop and we expect to see this bit come on strong though the entire month, this is always the main season for stripers on these local ground off of San Jose del Cabo.

We expect to see schools of mullet to show in abundance later this month, which in turn will attract more inshore gamefish, such as dogtooth snapper, amberjack, jack crevalle and roosterfish. At this time main inshore action was for sierra mostly smaller sized roosterfish.

The combined sportfishing fleet out of the panga area from Puerto Los Cabos Marina reported an estimated 64 charters for the week and anglers reported an approximate fish count of: 4 striped marlin, 6 yellowfin tuna, 11 yellowtail, 11 leopard grouper, 210 bonito, 22 red snapper, 12 mohara, 18 yellow snapper, 8 African pompano, 15 amberjack, 85 sierra, 10 glasseye pargo, 12 roosterfish and 95 triggerfish.

April 7, 2019

We continued to see waves of spring break vacationers arriving, many of these being families, as well as the college groups. The climate is definitely feeling spring like as well, mostly clear skies, lows about 65 degree, reaching 85 degrees later in the day, ideal time to visit.

The winds have been moderate, most of the strong northerlies now past, ocean currents continuing to vary, quite strong at times. Ocean temperatures averaged 72 degrees, early in

the week certain regions reported 74 degrees. Water clarity had been on a cleaning trend, then with changing currents became it bit greenish again, time of year that things can change rapidly from day to day.

Charters are using a combination of bait sources, ballyhoo, slabs of squid, as well as limited supplies of sardinas, chihuil action faded out this week, some imported rec crabs were obtained for red snapper action by the commercial panga fleet. Anglers were also using some yo-yo jigs and Rapalas.

Most common catch has been the Eastern Pacific bonito, schooling over high spots throughout the area, average size 4 to 6 lb., some up over 10 lb. These are a good eating fish, similar to tuna, same family species and scrappy fighters on light tackle. A few cabrilla, pargo, snapper and amberjack, of course lots of triggerfish. Some quality size huachinango were accounted for, one monster amberjack near 100 lb. was landed from a panga mid-week, they were using  a whole bonito for bait. The yellowtail action we saw last week seemed to stall out, we expect to still see more activity for these jacks.

Wahoo, marlin and dorado were not easy to find, though we did see a handful early in the week, we expect as water warms we will see more activity from these gamefish. Yellowfin tuna are being hooked into every day, mainly on strips of squid for bait, best spot was the Iman Bank, though the yellowfin are also being seen on the Gordo Banks. The tuna are very finicky though and anglers were fortunate to land one, sizes ranged from 25 lb. to 90 lb. These fish can become shy when they have plenty of natural food source to gorge on and when water conditions fluctuate daily.

Not much heard about fish along the shoreline, such as roosterfish, sierra and jack crevalle. Still some late season whale being sighted, lots of sea lions also moving onto the same fishing grounds.

The combined sportfishing fleet out of the panga area from Puerto Los Cabos Marina reported an estimated 70 charters for the week and anglers reported an approximate fish count of: 3 striped marlin, 5 dorado, 28 yellowfin tuna, 13 leopard grouper, 260 bonito, 42 red snapper, 4 barred pargo, 12 yellow snapper, 9 amberjack, 8 golden eyed tilefish, 6 baqueta grouper, 4 sierra and 90 triggerfish.

We saw similar low numbers of vacationers arriving this past week, though we expect to see more spring break tourists arriving soon. Weather patterns had been on a cooling trend and now we are starting to see this turn around, as winds have laid down and days are warming up near the 80 degree mark. Ocean conditions had turned over to be cold and green, but now we are seeing this rebound some, it can be a slow process, water is now averaging 71 to 73 degrees.

Main baits being used now were caballito and ballyhoo, no sardinas being found to speak of and not much going on with slabs of squid now. It is the time of year where anglers use more yo-yo style jigs off the bottom spots.

The all-around fishing did improve the past few days, the highlight being some hog sized amberjack in the 50 to 70 lb. class, also a few nice 25 lb. yellowtail were brought in, so this is encouraging to see these larger gamefish species showing up, taken over the structure near San Luis Bank. Also plenty of the Eastern Pacific bonito to keep anglers busy, a few even up to 15 lb. Some of the big amberjack actually grabbed onto bonito that were hooked up, these are hungry and aggressive fish, very powerful as well.

Only one or two yellowfin tuna seen all week, dorado were scarce as well, perhaps with a slight warming of the water we might see more of these fish, chance that maybe even the wahoo will wake up. The water is still greenish, but not as bad as it had been, it is on a clearing trend now, a lot can happen in a matter of a few days this time of year.

Action was scattered for striped marlin, though as the water clears we should see this improve, even in the off colored water there were reports of striped marlin, just no big concentrations at this time, at least off of the San Jose del Cabo grounds.

Inshore there were good numbers of small sized roosterfish off of the Hotel zone, trolling live bait is what these fish want, without sardinas, the other choice would be caballito or possibly mullet. Only a handful of sierra are being caught, a few up to five pounds.

The combined sportfishing fleet out of the panga area from Puerto Los Cabos Marina reported an estimated 60 charters for the week and anglers reported an approximate fish count of: 2 striped marlin, 5 dorado, 1 yellowfin tuna, 1 wahoo, 7 yellowtail, 13 leopard grouper, 205 bonito, 34 red snapper, 15 roosterfish, 3 surgeonfish, 4 barred pargo, 9 yellow snapper, 22 amberjack, 9 golden eyed tilefish, 5 glasseye snapper, 12 baqueta grouper, 9 sierra, 8 jack crevalle, 1 broomtail grouper and 110 triggerfish.

March 3, 2019

Not quite as many anglers in town this week, though still a fair amount, many people arriving just to escape the cold northern weather, some of them wishing to try their luck at local fishing. Many people do not realize that most fish species do have seasons and this time frame is really not peak season for the majority of gamefish species, exception being striped marlin, sierra or snapper. It is still a great time to see whales, with plenty of these mammals around, though by months end most will be heading on their northern migration.

Weather patterns much the same, northern winds, switching to the south at times, though not as strong as they had been earlier in the winter. Once again we saw a cooling trend and greener water sweeping into the area from the north. Water temperature ranged from 68 to 72 degrees. Main bait options now have been caballito, ballyhoo, mackerel and chihuil also being found at times, another option was smaller sized skipjack and some slabs of squid as well, everything but sardinas, no signs reported for them.

Most action is being found from straight off San Jose del Cabo to the Iman Bank, some charters have scouted as far north as Vinorama. No particular location where the action has been hot from day to day. Early in the week, before the water cooled and color turned over, there were good numbers of decent sized dorado found. Most of this action was found later in the morning and very close to shore. Trolling caballito and ballyhoo worked well, some anglers used chihuil or mackerel. We actual saw a couple of dorado up in the 25 lb. range, though average was more like 10 to 12  lb. Still nice fish for the winter season. Late in the week this dorado action slowed way down, to where anglers were fortunate to find one of these fish.

Offshore action was dominated by the striped marlin, with areas straight off the PLC marina, from one to four miles, being the location where more marlin were being encountered, though stripers were also found near Iman Banks and close off of Punta Gorda. Even a sailfish was hooked into close to shore, after it was landed it was released, not a normal species in the cold water. Most stripers were striking on various trolled baits, ranging in sizes up to 120 lb. a bit larger than we had been seeing.

The yellowfin tuna bite was very spotty, only hearing of maybe one or two tuna per day being found. The cooler off colored water, combined with windy conditions, made this a tough go. Same deal for wahoo, a few smaller fish early in the week, then none, as conditions turned over.

More bottom action being tried now. Mainly small red snapper, bonito and triggerfish, we did see one 40 lb. amberjack and a handful of baqueta grouper taken off of the Gordo Banks

The combined sportfishing fleet out of the panga area from Puerto Los Cabos Marina reported an estimated 77 charters for the week and anglers reported an approximate fish count of: 24 striped marlin, 1 sailfish, 82 dorado, 9 yellowfin tuna, 3 wahoo, 102 bonito, 72 red snapper, 14 baqueta grouper, 8 leopard grouper, 5 roosterfish, 2 sheepshead, 12 jack crevalle, 6 yellow snapper, 5 barred pargo, 3 amberjack, 12 golden eyed tilefish, 6 glasseye snapper, 14 sierra and 90 triggerfish.

March Events in Los Cabos

Thu, Feb 28, 2019

Cabo San Lucas Blog | Art Walk San Jose del Cabo | Bisbee Los Cabos Fishing | Cabo Events | Cabo Golf | Cabo Vacation | Los Cabos Cultural Events | Los Cabos International Film Festival | Los Cabos Ironman | los cabos tourist info | Los Cabos Villas | Mexico Travel Los Cabos Vacation Rentals | Whale Watching in Los Cabos

The most famous March event in Los Cabos doesn’t have an exact date. It goes on all month. That would be Spring Break, which each year attracts collegians from the U.S., Canada and Mexico to local beaches for fun in the sun before classes start up again.

The second most famous March event in Los Cabos also isn’t big on exact dates, except for the opening and closing days of its three-month run. That would be whale watching season, which officially starts on December 15 and officially ends on March 15, although locals and visitors occasionally still sight these leviathans into early April.

Baja California Sur visitors big on detailed itineraries needn’t worry, however. There are plenty of other big events this month with both dates and times, and in some cases even tickets! These events include the Baja Shakespeare Festival, an annual comedic/dramatic showcase on Los Cabos’ gorgeous East Cape; the Todos Santos Film Festival, which spotlights Latin American films at its historic downtown theater; and of course Carnaval in La Paz, an iconic regional event that is well worth the two-hour drive from Los Cabos.

Carnaval La Paz – February 28 – March 5

There are two cities that host notable Carnaval celebrations on the Baja California peninsula:  Ensenada and La Paz. Carnaval, for the uninitiated, is the Catholic pre-Lenten celebration that captivates Rio de Janeiro and New Orleans each year, although in the latter city it is better known as Mardi Gras. In La Paz, the uninhibited six-day farewell to debauchery is centered on the capital city’s malecón, and includes voluminous food and drink, colorful parades and costumes, plenty of live music from high-profile performers, and the coronation of a festival king and queen. This year’s theme is Grandes Navegantes (Great Navigators).

San José del Cabo Art Walk – March 7, 14, 21, 28

The historic Distrito del Arte in San Jose del Cabo takes center stage each Thursday evening during high tourist season–November through June–when residents and visitors alike are invited to stroll its cobblestone streets and peruse the many eclectic fine arts galleries. Art Walk hours are 5 to 9 p.m., when the neighborhood comes alive with wine, cheese and guided tours, as well as colorful street artists and strolling mariachis.

19th Annual Baja Shakespeare Festival – March 8 – 10, 13 – 16

For nearly 20 years, Baja Sur’s beautiful East Cape has welcomed visitors for fun-filled theater twists on cultural classics…often but not always Shakespeare. This year’s selection, The Sea Princesa and the Frijole, is based on the classic Broadway hit, Once Upon a Mattress; the show that launched comedienne Carole Burnett’s career back in 1959. The highly anticipated production will be held during consecutive weeks at Hotel Buenavista Beach Resort. Tickets are $20 each, or $400 pesos.

BMW Golf Cup International World Final – March 18 – 23

The national winners of the BMW Golf Cup International will tee it up in Los Cabos, Latin America’s premier golf destination, from March 18 – 23. BMW is one of golf’s most important global partners, both on a professional and amateur level. The premium automobile manufacturer is a worldwide partner of the Ryder Cup as well as an organizer or title sponsor of three iconic BMW professional tournaments in the U.S., England and Germany. The company also organizes the world’s largest international tournament series for amateur golfers, the BMW Golf Cup International. Each year, roughly 100,000 amateur golfers from about 35 countries play a series of tournaments around the world as part of the BMW Golf Cup International. Each player has a single goal in mind: qualification for the World Final. Approximately 100 players will gather to compete at this unique global event, to which BMW has invited top performers since 1995. The World Final will be played at Cabo del Sol, which boasts magnificent 18-hole layouts from major champions Jack Nicklaus and Tom Weiskopf.

Todos Santos Film Festival – March 21 – 24

This annual showcase for Mexican and Latin American films was founded in 2004, and is based each year at the historic Teatro-Cine Manuel Marquez de Leon, a landmark 70+ year old movie theater that overlooks the town square in Todos Santos. The 16th edition of the coastal pueblo magico‘s acclaimed festival de cine is set for March 21 – 24, 2019, and will include full-length films, as well as shorts, documentaries, and projects from the local Youth in Video program.

Los Cabos Summer Fishing Tournament Season Heating Up for 2019

Wed, Feb 20, 2019

Cabo San Lucas Blog | Art Walk San Jose del Cabo | Baja 1000 | Baja Fishing | Bisbee Los Cabos Fishing | Cabo Events | Cabo Fishing | Cabo Golf | Cabo Vacation | Los Cabos Fishing | Los Cabos Open of Surf | los cabos tourist info | Los Cabos Vacation Rentals | Mexico Travel | Mexico Travel Los Cabos Vacation Rentals

Every fisherman worth his salt knows about the big-money fishing tournaments that take place every October in Cabo San Lucas, headlined by the big daddy of them all, the millionaire making Bisbee’s Black & Blue Marlin Fishing Tournament

But the tournament season actually starts a little earlier in Los Cabos, and those who venture down for summer fishing and fun in the sun will find plenty of big-game action, as well as plenty of cash on the line for winning catches.

Here’s are five of the biggest tournaments on tap for Summer 2019 in Los Cabos:

6th Annual Pelagic Triple Crown of Fishing Tournament/Cabo Summer Slam – June 6 – 8

 Much of the summer tournament action is centered around the Los Cabos municipality’s beautiful, less developed East Cape, but Cabo San Lucas is always a focal point when it comes to the biggest sponsors and most lucrative payouts. That’s certainly true of what qualifies as the first major tournament of the 2019 season, the Cabo Summer Slam, AKA the Pelagic Triple Crown of Fishing.

Pelagic, a Newport Beach based company, is one of the world’s leaders when it comes to lifestyle apparel and high-performance gear associated with watersports like fishing, boating, diving and surfing. So it’ll come as no surprise that the Cabo Summer Slam offers some high stakes prizes and jackpots. Over $200,000 is expected to be on the line for the 6th annual tournament in 2019–slated for June 6th to 8th–meaning it’s the biggest Cabo San Lucas based tournament until Bisbee’s big money competitions in October. Last year, Team Tejas took top honors by boating an incredible 25 marlin over two days of competition.

23rd Annual Stars and Stripes Golf and Fishing Tournament – June 27 – 30

During the 20+ years of its existence, the annual Stars and Stripes’ golf and fishing tournament has raised over 26 million dollars for youth focused charities. But it’s not simply a tournament or a charity benefit…more like a complete lifestyle experience. Participants stay at the luxurious Hilton Los Cabos; go big-game sportfishing for dorado, wahoo, tuna, sailfish, swordfish, and black, blue and striped marlin; play golf at some of the world’s best golf courses; and enjoy spectacular live entertainment nightly (Sammy Hagar headlined in 2015).

15th Annual East Cape Dorado Shootout – July 20

This is one of the largest fishing tournaments in Southern Baja, with an average turnout of 130 teams each year. What makes it so popular? The opportunity to win a brand new, fully-loaded 2019 Volkswagen Amarok pickup truck, of course. The rules are simple, catch the biggest dorado on July 20th and you win the truck. There will also be great prizes for 2nd and 3rd place, as well as for the largest tuna and largest wahoo caught that day. The beauty of this one-day tournament format is that anyone can win. After the tournament, Palmas De Cortez in Los Barriles will host the award ceremony, which is unlike any in Baja, with dinner, music, and an estimated $30,000 in raffle items given away.

20th Annual Bisbee’s East Cape Offshore – August 1 – 4

The East Cape Offshore is the first of three Bisbee’s fishing tournaments that take place in Baja California Sur each year. The ECO is always first, and kicks off Bisbee’s 2019 series starting August 1st. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three qualifiers in marlin, tuna and dorado categories, with the awards celebration taking place afterwards at the Hotel Buena Vista. Base entry for the event is $1500 per team, with additional fees for daily jackpots. Prize money is based on entry fees received, with 60% going to the billfish winners, and 20% each to top tuna and dorado anglers.

3rd Annual East Cape Gold Cup Wahoo Jackpot Tournament – August 24

Similar to the East Cape Dorado Shootout with its drive-away first prize, the biggest wahoo caught on August 24th will earn one lucky fisherman a showroom fresh 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan SUV. In total, over $100,000 in cash and prizes are up for grabs, including great raffle prizes, return trips, fishing, and much more. The entry fee is only $500 per team and includes dinner at the awards ceremony.
