Marlin Fishing in Cabo

October is in full session. The ocean is buzzing with large billfish. And the Cabo San Lucas marina is full of boats hoping for a chance to catch that million dollar fish.

It’s Bisbee’s time and everyone is hoping for that perfect marlin. The Bisbee’s Black and Blue Tournament is one of the top tournaments for marlin fishers in Cabo San Lucas.

  1. Cabo San Lucas is home to 3 different types of marlin: Blue, Black and Striped.
  2. In 2008, the Get Over It caught 197 marlin in one day 50 miles off shore of Cabo. This beat out the previous record of 190 marlin in a day caught by the Reelaxe in 2007.
