Has anyone tried Cabo Fishing Lovers charter for Marlin? I'm going by myself in the fall and can't afford the $600+ price tag for a cruiser. Any suggestions? Anyone want to share a boat?

red rum has a share board and trip advisor at times has people looking to share. Whate dates are you fishing? I go down sometimes by myself. and share a boat.

I'm retired so available anytime. FYI I've never gone Marlin fishing though it's been on my bucket list for a long time. Grew up in San Diego so I've caught my share of yellowtail, albacore, yellowfin, mahi mahi.

Sure, as long as it can take is to where the Marlin are. The tradeoff seems to be money vrs more lines in the water. Would having a fish finder be an advantage?

Sold my Parker. You can find me on the Red Rooster.
If the weather is good, super oranges can easily get to where there are marlin. Plus you could probably afford to fish a couple days on a panga.

my experience is that if you are targeting marlin your chances increase in a cruiser vs panga, not saying it cant be done its just seems you get more chances
marlin fishing is trolling and sight fishing so a fish finder i
down there doesn't give you an advantage

When I had dough i used to go alone all the time...had a panga and a great skipper that would come down to the melia and pick me up there so i could avoid the cab ride and the hassle of the harbor.. things were much cheaper then but had some of the best trips of my life then...miss it alot ..

Since it's my first time, it would be nice to have a deck hand around. Are those dredge teasers effective?
The dredge teasers are definitely effective. Renegade Mike was pulling one when I was there in early February and it did seem to help raise fish.
