Baja Anglers, Cabo San Lucas
Cabo San Lucas, Baja California, has always been a favorite destination for Big Game anglers. Some years ago the Baja Anglers company started an agency as an outfitter for light tackle & fly fishing. Baja Anglers use sea - worthy fast Catamaran Hull Glacier boats. Species available: Blue, Striped, Blue & Black Marlin, Sailfish, Dorado, Yellowfin & Blackfin Tuna, Wahoo and Roosterfish . November - April is considered as a great time to catch Striped Marlin on the fly.
Grant Hartman owner of Baja Anglers and his captains have fly fishing experience and know exactly how to tease the fish at casting distance. All packages are tailor – made and all types of accommodation are available. Cabo San Lucas is a great place for non–fishermen.
A story from Grant Hartman, Baja Anglers
“Jos Arets from Holland caught a huge roosterfish. My boat broke down that day and Jos graciously gave the day to my other client, and then Jos and I took off on one of my beach trips. We put around 150 miles on my truck that day, only to catch that fish 20 miles from Cabo. We fished hard all day in a 25-mile hour cold north wind. Late in the day Jos caught a 1 lb. roosterfish. Then we really fished hard as BIG roosterfish love to eat small baby roosterfish. A few minutes later Jos missed a fish that was at least a foot and half longer than the one he caught. 80 lbs. plus. Then this monster hit one of my roosterfish no name flies. The fight was around 15 to 20 minutes long.
A very conservative guess on the roosterfish was around 55 lbs, but the fish went 60 inches with 33” around the girth. The formula length X girth squared divided by 800 comes to 81 lbs, but the fish was not that big. Jos weighs 240 lbs. and he looks small with the fish. It was definitely a world record on 16 lb. tippet. Jos released the fish unharmed. I left my scale at home. Go figure. It cost Jos the world record, but he wasn’t upset.”
Best Seasons for Billfish on the fly according to Grant Hartman
November- December and April - May: Striped Marlin
September - October: Blue Marlin
