Has anybody here done any panga fishing in Cabo? If so, any recommendations on boats, guides, etc.?
You're on! Just as soon as that Powerball winner's check arrives. ;DI will guide you in the ways of zen, booze, food, broken Spanish and baiting hooks. I also have a good eye for prostitutes and the "safe" guy to get "other stuff" from :wink: All I charge is the price of the trip, shoot, I'll even take care of my own food and hookers.
NICE !!Old thread but new relavant info.
Just got back from La Paz, which is up the coast from Cabo. Having fished both, I can tell you I probably won't consider fishing Cabo again, unless it's to do the Bixbee; (not likely).
Fished with three guys from Denver, two fishing buddies and my nephew. We had fished Alaska together two years ago. La Paz was one third the price and ten times fishing man-points: Out all day in Pangas with local Mexican captains who mostly speak only Spanish. They are all related and have been fishing for generations. Live local or boat caught bait. Drift fishing dead shrimp in the current along with chum for football sized or better Tuna. Also caught Needlefish, Bonito, and Dorado. Some trolling for Dorado. Epic days with most bringing back best numbers and quality of the last three or four seasons, we're told by locals. Primitive equipment, no life vests. Some radios worked, some didn't. No sonor fishfinders. Eating fat piles of freshcaught sushimi make by our captain onboard on the way back to the beach. Three star hotels for fishermen, comfortable enough and seemed safe. Lots of Margaritas and cervesas. We ate most of our meals at Tailhunters Cantina. Trip was set up through Jonathan Roldan's "Talihunters International."
