Live Bait Fishing Charters Near Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
On this trip, you'll head offshore to chase down some trophy pelagics in the rich waters off of Cabo San Lucas! You'll be fishing on board a luxury 38' Blackfin sportfishing vessel, which is perfectly suited for the offshore trip of a lifetime! Your captain, Charry, is highly experienced and knowledgeable, and will show you the time of your life out on the water. Cabo is renowned for its world-class sportfishing, and for good reason. The offshore shelf is right off the beach, and cold currents make this a prime spot for all kinds of big predators, including Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and more. While on the water, First Mate Antonio (Torrito) will prep your rigs and bait your hooks, so you can focus on setting hooks! Fishing offshore in Cabo, you can expect to catch a variety of fish including Black Marlin, Blue Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Roosterfish, Sailfish, Striped Marlin, Swordfish, Wahoo, and Yellowtail Amberjack. These pelagics run year-round, but the best time to be down in Cabo is late September through January. Captain Charry will use a variety of techniques to put you on the fish, including bottom fishing, heavy tackle fishing, live baiting, and trolling. No matter what your experience level is, Captain Charry will make sure that you have a great time and catch plenty of fish. The vessel is a 38' Blackfin sportfisher that is fully equipped with state-of-the-art electronics, autopilot, GPS, sonar, and navigation aids. She's powered by twin Detroit engines with a total of 1100 horsepower. This boat is perfect for offshore fishing in Cabo because it is fast, comfortable and has everything you need for a successful trip. When you come on an offshore fishing trip with Charry and his crew, you can be sure that all of the tackle and gear will be provided for you, and you can purchase a fishing license when you arrive. However, there are a few things that you should bring with you to make sure you have a great time. First, be sure to bring any boating essentials that you might need. This includes items like sunscreen, hats, sunglasses, and towels. Second, be sure to bring enough food and drinks for everyone on the trip. The team will provide water and ice, but you should bring your own snacks and drinks. Lastly, don't forget to bring your camera to capture all of the memories from your trip! Read More

Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences
Excellent captain and experience; highly recommend! Although we only caught a few, he’s a great guy, trustworthy and also helped us with some local restaurant recommendations and connecting us with some of his local friends. Five Stars all the way. I will be a repeat customer.
We had a blast with Captain Jorge and Alex. Started the morning off with coffee and breakfast tacos as we headed out in search of Mahi off the Pacific side of Cabo. Caught a couple of keepers and some smaller tuna, then took our fresh Mahi over to Alexanders right across from the marina where they cook the fish a few different ways. Definitely recommend hopping on any of the trips Jim and team offer!
Jake L. with Jim K. of Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur
FIVE STARS AMAZING! I booked my first every deep sea fishing guide for myself and two other fishing experts so the pressure was on and I had no idea what I was doing. Luckily Captain Experience was so easy, the selection was great, the signup process through to the day of instructions and QR code was a breeze. We had the most amazing time! I got the impression we received special treatment from the crew by booking through Caption Experience. I will 100% use this service again, no stress and a guaranteed great time. Thank you all so much for all your help, it was a fantastic day I wont soon forget. Can't wait to book another trip!
Ray G. with Eddy V. of Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur
This was our first ever fishing trip and we had an amazing time. Captain Eddy made sure all our needs were met, and the crew Julio and Jose were so encouraging and enthusiastic. We caught several fish right away and were able to enjoy fresh tuna sashimi that the crew prepared from what we caught. We went further out and had the awesome experience of catching a striper marlin! We saw whales and also fed seals right off of the boat. The Big Papi crew made our experience truly unforgettable and we can’t wait to go back and do it again!
Richard N. with Eddy V. of Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur
Highly recommend Blue Sky Cabo charter. Everything was explained very well by the owner in an email before the trip (where to go, what to bring) and ended up catching a trophy Mahi! Had the fish cooked fresh at Alexander’s 4 different ways at the marina afterwards. Capt. Julio and Jorge have been fishing these waters for over 20 years and are very knowledgeable. We will be booking again very soon for marlin season. Thank you again!
Austin S. with Jim K. of Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur
Another great Captain Experiences trip in the books! While the seasonal timing wasn't the best, Blue Sky Cabo was top notch as always and very up front about catch expectations. The crew worked tirelessly to put us on some fish and succeeded in getting us in some Dorado. This was a family trip aimed at exposing fishing newbies to the experience and spending time together on the water. Success all around! As the saying goes, "There is no such thing as a bad fishing day". Huge shoutout to Blue Sky Cabo and their impeccable crew, equipment, and service. This was my second trip with Blue Sky, and I will definitely be back!!!
Drew C. with Jim K. of Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur
Where do I begin…AMAZING! From the moment we boarded it was 5 star. Captain David was a true pro and the guides were talented, friendly, and made the whole experience next level. I’ll never forget my day with Blue Sky Cabo! Shark ✔️ Marlin ✔️ & we got to meet a sea lion. Not to forget the countless dolphins putting on a show and a breathtaking whale breach. Exceptional. Highly recommended.
Drew C. with Jim K. of Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur
Captain Casey was very professional and knowledgeable. His 2 crew were very experienced, and his boat is a fishing machine. On our full day charter we experienced bad weather and had to cut the trip short. A minor leak in a tranny hose kept us from traveling at full speed on our return to the marina, so it took a little longer than expected. Casey offered us a free half day trip the following day, which i thought was a very professional way to handle this. Based on our short time in Cabo we couldnt take him up on this, so he reduced my fee to a half day charter. Again a very professional way to handle this. We didnt catch the fish we hoped for, but i have no issues with booking with Casey on my next trip to Cabo.
Dave E. with Casey C. of Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur
Having fished all over North America, I can say without a doubt that this was the easiest & most successful fishing venture I've ever been on! The awesome staff at Captain Experiences helped me understand which charter out of Cabo would be best for my group, and Captain Raul & his team led by Captain Pepe over delivered! We caught plenty of fish including some massive yellowtails, spent the sunrise watching enormous whales breach the surface, and wrapped up the day with some fresh sashimi from our catch. We had first-time fishers and lifelong anglers on the boat and everyone left in fantastic spirits! Looking forward to doing it all again on our next trip to Cabo!
Graham H. with Pepe S. of Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur
Easy process! We didn’t get on any striped marlin but the outfitter was professional and worked hard. Great first experience with Captain Experiences!
