Hey all,
Well, my dad just told me today that he planned a trip down to Cabo from Jan 28 - Jan 31, and I wanted to plan a day or two of fishing. This will be my first time fishing in Mexico.

I was wondering, what type of fishing will be going down around this time?

And most importantly, what are some good charters to take for 2-3 people?

We will be staying at the Intercontinental Los Cabos hotel(dad got a smokin' deal). Any help is appreciated, I just want to catch some fish.

Thanks

-Cameron

So you're staying at the Presidente Intercontinental in San Jose del Cabo? Check out Gordo Banks Pangas in La Playita Gordo Banks Pangas! I might be down there that weekend too. Just me and the GF. Ill be the only one fishing tho...

Yup, you could fish pangas out of San Jose, and Eric's operation is the way to go if you choose to go that route.
Personally, I like to chase marlin and would plan on fishing cruisers out of Cabo San Lucas.
RenegadeMike is a regular here, and he's both a good fisherman and a hoot to fish with. Also check out Redrum, Pisces, or El Budster. You could also look at Picante if you want to spend the big bucks.
Things haven't been red hot, but there are always some marlin to chase around:)

Any idea what size boat and how much you are looking to spend? Be happy to offer my thoughts if I know what you're looking for.

Boat size is not an issue. It will most likely just be my little brother and I fishing, and possibly my dad(he gets chronic sea-sickness so I'm not sure what he will want to do). I would like to spend somewhere between $200-$400.

Thanks

striped marlin, dorado, yellowfin tuna, roosterfish should all be in season late January. Id recommend a panga one day and a small cruiser the second. or vise versa. either way pangas on the beach for roosters or possible dorados is an absolute blast. And of course a day off shore chasing marlin or tuna or dorado also would be excellent. I went a few times in Jan as a kid and had two trips of a lifetime. We saw possibly 100 stripers on the Golden gate bank one day and it was completely unreal. Jaime bank boated close to 40 dodos for four of us. January can be real good!

Hi Cameron,
The fleet we book alot is Gordo Banks Pangas.
Super Panga is $250.00 per day for upto 3 people in the boat.
They're catching dorado, stripe marlin, yellowfin tuna, not too much bottom fishing right now.

x3 on the renegade mike. Fished with him for a week this summer with my little brother and parents. He's super cool and his deckhands were always willing to teach me and my brother how they were rigging and how to wire fish etc.

Plus he speaks english!
