If you have plans to go deep sea fishing in Cabo, there are a number of tips that can ensure you have a pleasurable experience. While “catching the big one” may be the ultimate goal of this adventure, you can have a great time whether you catch a huge fish or not.

Finding the Fish You Want

There are hundreds of different kinds of fish, each one requiring a different plan if you want a successful catch. When you go deep sea fishing in Cabo, you will have three options for fishing:

  • Offshore fishing
  • Trolling
  • Bottom fishing

Bottom Fishing

This is exactly what it sounds like. You drop your fishing line close to the sea floor where a number of different types of fish are found. Fishing captains may have previously dropped an artificial reef off of the coast for the fish to start inhabiting. This will provide their customers with a much better chance of a great catch. Some of the fish you can expect to catch when bottom fishing include: amberjack; triggerfish; grouper; scampi; black, red and white snapper.


This type of fishing is much more exciting, since the bait that you are going to use will be in constant motion close to the surface of the water. Your captain will go in a straight line at a low speed. The fish will have to catch up to your bait, which means they will likely put up a pretty good fight. Some of the fish that you can catch when you are trolling include: wahoo; cobia; sailfish; mackerel; and kingfish.

Offshore Fishing

For a truly unforgettable experience, offshore fishing may be the right method for you. This is considered the most “glamorous” option when it comes to fishing. These fish are typically large and will require a long and hard fight before you can successfully pull them into your boat. In many cases, this is where you will find your trophy fish. Some of the most common types that you can catch when offshore fishing include: black fin tuna; dolphin; wahoo; white and blue marlin.

Gearing Up

If you are planning a charter trip for deep sea fishing in Cabo, then you will not have to pack much of your own gear. Your charter captain will likely have everything that you need. However, it is a good idea to check ahead of time.

Knowing what you want to catch, will let you know the type of trip that you should book while visiting Cabo. There are a number of different options, so be sure to consider what you want to do carefully.
