Best Lures for Cabo San Lucas Sports Fishing

Here are some of the best types of lures that are used by anglers for trolling, teasing and catching different species of game fish of different sizes found in the waters of Cabo San Lucas.

  • Jigs

Available in multiple colors, a jig features a weighted head made from zinc or lead. The heavy head of this lure ensures that it stays in the right position after casting, increasing your chances of attracting fish and catching a bite. Jigs are quite versatile and can be dressed with feathers, fake insects, bait fish and rubber worms which also help conceal hooks.

To catch a bite with jigs, it is extremely important that you know how to use them. Once you cast it, you need to make sure that it hops. Make the jig hop by lifting the rod’s tip and then lowering it. This technique helps attract almost all types of game fish (especially Big Yellow Fin Tuna), which is probably why it is considered as the best way to tease big fish resting at the bottom of the water.

  • Hard Body Lures

When targeting marine species like Marlin, Tuna or Dorado, consider using hard body and rubber skirted trolling lures. These lures can mimic live baits and are proven to entice game fish species to bite on your line.

  • Spinners

Featuring a spinning-blade, dressable hook and metal shaft, this lure is widely used by anglers in low light conditions and when water clarity is an issue. After casting, fishing enthusiasts drag this lure in the water. The dragging movement makes the blade spin, which creates sound and vibration in the water, much needed to attract prey. When the fish hears the sound and feels the presence of this lure, it begins to come closer, making it easier for you to catch.

  • Spoon Lures

These lures have a unique curved-metal construction, featuring one, two or three hooks. The curved shape of the lure makes it move side-to-side and has a slow forward motion. This type of motion resembles the movement of injured bait fish which encourages big game fish to come closer and investigate it. And that gives anglers the perfect chance to hook and catch a big game fish!

Are you planning to go to Cabo San Lucas on vacations and experience the thrill of sports fishing? If yes, then that’s great because there’s a wide variety of game fish bite that you can catch inshore and offshore, here in Cabo San Lucas! But wait, have you decided about your sea ride? Would you be hitting the sea in a cruise ship or charter a luxury yacht? If you haven’t decided yet and can’t make up your mind, then allow us to help you out.

Cruise Ship vs. Yacht Charter—Weigh Your Options

It’s said that it pays to weigh your options, and we couldn’t agree more! Here are some common factors that we have selected on which we’ll help you evaluate the two options available at your disposal so that it’s easier for you to make a confident and an informed choice:

Factor 1—Privacy

Hands down, in comparison to a cruise ship, a luxury yacht charter offers more privacy. You can explore the sea and enjoy sports fishing and other water sports with the people you know and love, like your friends and family. However, on a cruise ship, you can’t enjoy this level of privacy as the capacity of a cruise ship usually exceeds 3,000 passengers. Simply stated, it’s just too crowded.   

Factor 2—Control and Freedom

Chartering a yacht gives you unmatched freedom and control when it comes to organizing shore excursions and planning your sports fishing schedule. However, you can’t simply do that if you choose to ride the waves on a cruise ship primarily because outings on cruise ships are pre planned and so are the itineraries. And more importantly, if you choose to go on a cruise ship to explore Cabo San Lucas, then you’ll have to make sure that you comply with the rules, otherwise you’ll be left on the shore.

With a charter yacht, you get a chance to plan your own day and course as you like. However, the only constraint is that you need to return the chartered yacht on the agreed time and location.

Factor 3—Crew and Service

If you want to enjoy a personalized service and have access to a dedicated crew with a private chef who can prepare delicious meals on-demand by the sea for you and your friends, then yacht charter is your best bet. You can never enjoy this level of service on a cruise ship.

If you’re thinking of chartering a yacht, then look no further! Browse through our wide range of luxury yachts. You’ll be amazed with the variety of options that we have for you, and more importantly, the chartering prices are also very economical. We strive to provide you a luxurious chartering experience without breaking your budget because we want you to have the best time while game fishing, and go back home with great memories.
