Default Anyone been to cabo?

Shore fishing style? It's in my near future. Just curious if anyone has been and has had any luck from shore. Ill have a 10ft surf rod with me as well as a normal rod.

I've never shore fished there, but my pops and I go down there quite a bit. We go down to the docks after all the boats leave in the morning and theres normally a couple pangas (small boats) down there looking to go out. Just go up to the captin and offer him $20 or 25/hr to take you out. They almost always will take you up on it and won't charge you the 5/hr minimum either. We've always caught more fish on these little boats then the bigger boats.

We was there for Christmas Up north of Cabo was good for Sierra (spanish Mackerel) we were hitting the schools from a boat but there were guys shore fishing for them also. A couple of our guys spent a lot of time casting around Resort central area and didn't have much luck.

I have and pretty sure Slayer did also. Shore fishing is great 1/2 oz to 1 oz silver spoons and same size jigs in white. Rattle traps blue silver and green silver work in the breaking water. Find some rocks and you might luck into a Rooster, actually fishing is always better by rocks.. I would also leave the 11' surf rod at home . Try the Panga stuff too, cheap and fun.

if you have the time and want a great day fishing, get your ass up North about 70 miles to Rancho Leonero. It's the bomb. You can get a Super Panga for a bit over $200 and catch the hell out of fish. Holler at me if you want more info!

I had a few buddies who used to go down regularly. I don't talk to them much anymore, but they used to show me pix of sharks caught in the surf using chunks of jack. I don't think I'd want to tangle with them, but they used to kill em... Big ass circle hook, big ass chunk of jack.

We fished up north of Cabo at Las Palmas. We were there a few days and fished on a boat during the day. After we came in I would get out the fresh water gear (spinning and casting) with a curly tail or other minnow type baits and I caught all kinds of surf perches and other fish. Didn't get into anything big but had tons of action.
