World records abound for many species here. Fish for record Striped Marlin, Pacific Blue Marlin, Sierra Mackerel, Yellowtail and Roosterfish just to name a few.
Yellowtail fishing peaks in the winter months on this Pacific Coast hot spot.

"Nine yellow fin tuna, four over 150 pounds and the others around one hundred pounds, in one day, for two anglers fishing within two miles of the shore. Repeat that for three days and you have a fishery unequaled anywhere.” Zane Grey

Zane Grey was writing about the fishing at Cape San Lucas over 80 years ago in the book, Fishing Virgin Seas. But like everywhere else in the world, things change. Back in Zane Grey’s day, there was only one way to get to Cabo San Lucas, and that was by boat. You faced an 800-mile trip down the Pacific coast and carried everything with you. At Cape San Lucas, there were no hotels, no roads... nada.

Since 1974, a highway has run down the Baja California peninsula from Tijuana all the way to Cabo San Lucas—now an easy three-day drive across some spectacular desert country. The International Airport in San José del Cabo, 27 miles north of Cabo San Lucas, brings over a million visitors a year while accommodations ranging from small hostels to world class resorts provide for all tastes and pocketbooks. Some of the best golf courses in the world, and of course, the fishing, add up to a very attractive vacation package."
