Hi I'm new. For father's day i told my dad that i'd join him in his love for fishing. Unfortunately, I really don't know anything about anything when it comes to big game fishing. So i decided to join your community in hopes of being able to communicate with my dad and not sound totally stupid. So any help would be greatly appreciated. Plus my younger brother makes fun of my ignorance.

Anyone going to Cabo San Lucas this season? My dad, brother and I want take our rig out there. I wanted to get a consensus on what to expect. Input or suggestions? Thanks

Don't have much advice Birdy but welcome to this great place, if your post falls down the ladder you may want to give it a bump Monday morning when there will be a LOT more traffic here. I have read plenty of posts about Cabo so I know alot of people here have the advice you are seeking. You may even want to do a search.

Again, welcome!

I'm going back a week from Tuesday. When your Dad is hooked up with his striped marlin, just keep saying things like "keep your rod tip up", "don't give it any slack", "I think it's finally tired", "how about another Pacifico, por favor". Just keep bombarding him with advice. ;)

Thanks for the quick lingo suggestions, I'll try it out this weekend before we actually go on our trip. My dad's taking me out for what he call "sea leg evaluation"...

I will look them up today. Thanks.

I read a guide book today that said that we missed the marlin season and we should fish for tuna instead. What do you guys think?

There is always marlin in Cabo. Just more during certain times. Your Captain will let you know what's available. Its worth fishing more than one day. That way on the first day you may suggest that you just want to catch anything and the second try for a marlin.


Have fun!!

It's always striped marlin season in Cabo. The blues and blacks show up more late summer and early fall. If you find yourself fishing with dolphins all over the place, you're looking for tuna that are feeding underneath them. Tell your dad at this point, "Dang, I wish they'd put a cedar plug out there." :) He'll be impressed.
