Sportfishing at Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, is one of the world's great vacation travel experiences. Located at the absolute, extreme tip of Mexico's famous Baja California peninsula, "Cabo" is a magic vacation spot where sportfishing tourism is so intense that on any given morning it is often possible to see more than 200 charter boats leaving the crowded marina, carrying eager vacationers who have come from all over the world to catch marlin, tuna, sailfish, wahoo, dorado (also known as dolphinfish or mahi mahi), and dozens of other game fish species, such as red snapper, yellowtail, sierra, jack crevalle, roosterfish, groupers, and many, many more.
During Cabo's many annual sportfishing tournaments, such as the world famous Bisbee's Black and Blue Marlin Tournament, the world's richest fishing competition with its million dollar purses, and the huge Western Outdoor News Los Cabos Tuna Jackpot, Mexico's largest angling event in the number of boats chartered, the Pacific Ocean at the mouth of the marina is literally churned to a froth as scores of gleaming charter boats frantically charge out to sea in search of adventure, glory--and possibly, some very "big bucks" that may easily range into the six-figure bracket.
More often than not, these big time tournament boats, and also the huge armada of regular sportfishing cruisers and pangas (Mexican outboard motor powered skiffs about 22 feet long) that leaves the Cabo San Lucas marina nearly 365 days per year (with pauses only for hurricanes or other tropical storms!) will return in the afternoon with their outrigger flags flying, signifying another successful day in this, one of the world's richest sport fisheries, and also a modern tourist destination with a fascinating modern history that goes back half a century.
For vacationers of all persuasions, and especially mixed groups with some anglers and some who would prefer their fishing vacations to include exotic scenery, dining, beaches, pools, shopping, and nightlife, Cabo San Lucas truly "does it all." Here, in this glamorous Mexican vacation port of call, one could theoretically go for a morning walk around the beautiful marina, swim, snorkel, dive, parasail, catch a marlin or two or three, play a few holes of golf, grab a massage, buy a piece of decorative sculpture by a world recognized artist, have a blowout dinner of Japanese, Chinese, Italian, or of course Mexican cuisine, and then hit the nightclubs (adults only!) until the sun comes up the next morning and it's time to go fishing again!
