Bret, I have fished Cabo San Lucas and 100 miles north at the east cape for the past three years. The cedar plugs fished close to the boat work fantastic for the yft. If you come into a school of yft toss live bait and hold on. For the marlin all large skirts work good, different colors for different times, sorry I can not narrow it down. A good boat will know what to put out. My advise bring all your lures. I have always gone in November, thats the end of yft run and the begining of the striped marlin run. It is one of the best locations I have ever fished. Hope you made resevations and have a good charter.
